    Nice stories. My sister passed away with breast cancer a few years ago. She was supposed to go to Belieze with us but got to sick to go & she passed while I was there. On the day she passed, I woke at like 4 in the morning & had a bad feeling about things. We left around 6 for an all day dive adventure & coming back on the boat I just started to cry & couldn't stop. I told my husband that I had a real bad feeling & I thought she was gone. I found out when we got home that she had in fact passed that day, they put her in a coma around 4 am & she passed in the early evening around the same time we were coming back from diving on the boat. My mom called & told my husband later that night, but he didn't say anything until we were home. There's lots of things that happen in my life that I feel she is responsible for and I feel her with me everyday. I've lost a lot of loved ones & friends & but I never have those feeling about anyone except her.

    I have had a couple weird situations happen to me.

    My son would have been three at the time and one day he was sitting in front of the fireplace talking in a conversational style while looking in the fireplace. I asked him who he was talking to and he said "Lilly" which was a name that he wouldn't have been exposed to at that point. This happened many times between him and Lilly. At times, even when he wasn't around, the little brush and poker would swing back and forth while hanging on the brick completely by themselves! Also, one night my ex husband woke up and saw a small blond curly haired child wearing a pretty white dress walk in front of our closet and into our bathroom, then disappear. I am so thankful I did not see that one!

    My mom's dad died about a month after my littlest sister was born. When she was around 4 or so she would just, out of nowhere, say stuff like 'When I was 31 I drove a big truck' or 'When I was 52 I painted a blue car'.

    Came to find out (from Mom) that those, among other similar statements, were things that *had* actually happened to her dad when she'd (my sister) stated they had. At first we thought it was stuff she'd overheard, but a lot of it were things that just wouldn't have come up in a conversation like that, or that only Grandpa really would've known.

    Kind of neat I was sad when she eventually stopped saying stuff like that (around 6 or so)

    My friend died suddenly last year. We never had a chance to say goodbye or go to the funeral because he lived in Kansas and I live in Pennsylvania. About two weeks after he passed away, I was feeling really crappy and just basically depressed about the whole thing. I stopped by a local store to check out a dryer because mine was on the blink. On the counter was a laptop they had just gotten in a few days before. I turned it around to check out the features and whatnots and my friends ISP homepage was up. Nobody in the store remembered how it got there and it was an ISP in Kansas. I still swear he was saying hi and don't be upset.

    My daughter swore she smelled cigarette smoke in her room at night. I smoke, but not in her room or at 2 AM. She mentioned it to her teacher who happened to be the daughter-in-law of the woman who owned our house before us. Her teacher said that Hazel used to sneak up stairs at odd hours and smoke in that room. Hazel still hangs around here. She puts things back where she thinks they belong, she was a homebody who couldn't stand things being out of place. Her husband still hangs around in his basement workshop. People go down there and come back up saying the room is occupied and they'd rather not impose. Apparently, he lets people know when they're bothering him.

    Its one thing when you are expecting it to happen, its totally different when you wake up at night, laying in bed about to get up to pee and notice some weird black figure in the darkness standing over your bed staring at you. Flick on the light and theres nothing. That would fightning to anyone but its happened to people


    My sister told me of omething wild that happened to her over dinner one time with her and her now ex husband. She was a armored car driver , delivering money and documents and things. She was bored with the job and decided to have a career change so she enrolled in flight lessons to learn to fly helicopters. After maybe the second lesson , after she went off to the lesson with her instructor, her husband came home from work and got a phone call. He answered it and some woman on the phone said she was my sisters instructor and todays lesson was off that it wasnt a good day to go out. Well since my sister had already left, he figured shed get there and figure it out. Meanwhile she got there and her instructor fired up a helicopter and it sounded horrific. So at that point the instructor said forget the lesson for today. He was going to get some mechanic to look at the craft asap. My sister got home and said the lesson for the day was off. Her husband said No kidding , your instructor called just after you left and told me I figured youd get there and find out. . She said it wasnt a good day to go out. Hmm she thought, thats funny, and said my instructor is a man. So she did *69 on the phone to see who called thinking it was a prank. The line rang and clicked...nothing then some loud shreking , a distinctive womans scream was all that was there. Then the line went dead. Freaked me out when I heard it from them over dinner 7 months later

    Every morning @ 8am from September to March our front door sounds like it opens and closes. I'm the only one home except for the 3 dogs in the back bedroom with me. I used to go look every morning but no one / thing is ever there. Even the dogs are used to it now. Our house is not old, built in 1989 and on a full street, not out in the desert like a lot of the other older homes. Also in the summer, I smell roses when I'm cooking dinner. Only in the summer only when cooking dinner.
    When I was 19 I worked as a bartender 200 miles from where my father lived. On August 1st I was counting my drawer / till and the digital clock stopped @ exactly 12:00 midnight. We all thought it was unplugged but it was one of those cheesy Coors clocks with the waterfall and water flowing down a cliff or whatever. I got a call @ 4am, he has died @ midnight. I freaked! I laid on my bed and talked to him begging him to let me know what it was like to die. I swear he touched my toe and sent a shock through my whole body.
    Sorry this is so long, i'm way too descriptive.

    I work in a museum and I am a frim believer that the objects around me and my co-workers have something hanging on to them. Every person who has worked there has had an experience or a story to tell. Voices are heard, figures are seen, things get moved and misplaced only to appear again in random spots, and even our guests have asked about things that they themselves have seen. It got so bad a few years ago that the place was blessed in a Native American ceremony after a chest with many artifacts from the local tribe was brought in.

    I don't believe that they are there to hurt us. It's their place and their things and they have every right to be there. Most of the times it's harmless, such as our names being called when no one is around, hearing footsteps or things out of the corner of your eye, but sometimes it's heartbreaking, such as the sobbing that we hear around Christmastime coming from one of the bedrooms. The woman who is crying has every right to, as she has an extremely sad story to tell. We've also begun to smell cigar smoke and lilac perfume, which we know were highly enjoyed by the occupents.

    Sorry this is so vague. We really aren't suppose to talk about things that happen in my museum as we would hate to have people coming there just for the "ghosts". I have a ton of stories to tell and if you're interested, just PM me.

    There was another time, I was at one of the older places out here, Wont say where so please dont ask. I bring a ditigal recorder with me to these places when I visit these spots and had it on a string around my neck. I tripped over the stupid doorstop going into one of the rooms and yelled, Dammit ! , well my recorder recorded a female voice that said " Ohh are you ok " i didnt hear it at the time I tripped and myself and one other guy were in the room at the time. Thats all I got from the whole place. EVP's are weird like that

    During the summer I was visiting my parents. We had all gone to bed and the house was quiet and everyone was in bed. I was laying there and I heard someone/thing walking on the floor furnace. I looked to see if anyone walked by the bedroom door, but no one did. The next day I asked if someone had gotten up and went into the living room. Everyone said they hadn't gotten up but heard the footsteps.

    I never really had any experiences until last year. My mom, on the other hand, always has them. She's seen full-blown apparitions of her dad.

    As for me, one evening last year I was playing on the living room floor with my (then) two-year-old. All of a sudden, the volume on the TV sarting going up, up, up. My first reaction was to go, "Pa, knock it off!" My grandfather always had the TV on so loud! I often have had the lights flicker when I think about my grandparents, and I believe that's their way of just saying, "HI!" So I say "Hi," and it stops. Stuff like this does not freak me out in any way.

    My coworker, on the other hand, has had some strange occurances in her house since she moved in. Next month we're going over with a clairaudient and the other kind... the one who sees things... whatever they're called??? She's heard sounds, had things come up missing, and most recently she's seen and heard her daughter's doorknob jiggling. Ooooh!!

    A few pictures I posted on the "Ghosts, Etc." thread:

    I talked about this in an older thread...but since there is so much about paranormal/personal ghostly encounters, rather than merging....I'm resorting to cut & paste.
    I had an "experience" that I can share. My dad died just before the start of my junior year of college...where I was majoring in Theatre (what a shocker, huh?!?!) I was trying to adjust....while still in mourning about 2 months later when I was in a production of "The Miser" (a Moliere farce).

    This was being performed in the "lab theatre, a very intimate performance space with no seperation between the stage & the audience. On the last night of the run, my mom had come with a friend, to see the show. My character's appearance didn't take place until the final act...but it was a funny role, the guy who explains all of the chaos. As I stepped out from the darkness, my prop cane broke.....I just hunched over a little bit more....and enjoyed the extra laughs.....during my scene, I saw my mom sitting in the 3rd row, next to... yep, you guessed it, my dad. It was shocking & quite surreal at the time. At the curtain call, Dad was laughing so hard, I could see tears streaming down his face.


    The theatre was on the 2nd floor, the dressing rooms at the bottom of the stairs that the audience would all be coming down. I was down in 2 seconds flat, waiting & watching for the image of my dad to come down. Not only did he not show up in the brightly lit hallway, there was not a single audience member who even came close in resemblence. Mom & her friend came down & the usual hugs & banter took place.

    She never knew about the apparition or why I must have seemed disappointed & perhaps distracted after the show. Lucky for me, about a year ago, the subject of ghosts came up...and when I told Mom about Dad's attendance at that show, she seemed quite pleased....and maybe a tad bit envious.

    It's very common for those who have gone to the other side to try to get our atttention, if only to say they're ok and love us. Remember, the bond of love can never be broken. ALL people are spirits having an experience on earth in human form. ALL people can attune thier spiritual gifts but for whatever reason some block it out or whatever because of conditioned thinking that it's evil or of the devil. I'm a medium and it's common for me to hear or see things. Yes, sometimes it's spooks me if I don't expect it---like when someone walks up behind you and startles you. In 2004 my friend Christine died of cancer. A few days before that some of us had gone to see her and after the others left I stayed behind for a few words, just us. I looked into her eyes and the feeling was very different---at that moment it was a spirit talking to another spirit, not just me talking to her. I have experienced that a few times and it's really an awe-insiring feeling. A few days later she died and appeared in my kitchen about 7:10 that morning to tell me she was leaving. I said she'd be missed and then she vanished. I get a call later that morning from the church's minister telling me she'd died that morning about 7:10. Fortunately the minister knew about me and didn't freak out too badly when I told her I knew because she'd visited me. (This is before we became Spiritualist and went to a Methodist church.) Anyway, fast forward two days. Apparently Christine was busy letting her (Baptist) relatives know that she was alive and well on the Other Side. LOL. Anyway, she visited her grandkids who accepted the fact that grandma was in heaven and they talked to her plain as anything while she played with them. A battery-operated remote controlled car they were fond of went zooming all over the room. They laughed with glee and told her "ok grandma, now make it go backward" and off it would go again. The interesting part is that there were no batteries in the car at the time so it could not have moved through regular means. She also came to my house and turned on the new clock radio in my bedroom. It was 1:10 a.m. and suddenly the thing starts blaring away on a station I never would have listened to, but something that got my attention. I woke up and knew it was Christine, the funny part was that since the clock radio was new, I didn't know how to turn it on or off yet. I said out loud "Ok Chris, I know it's you. Could you turn it off please?" And it then went silent. Spirits are energy and so is electricity, it's the easiest for them to affect and so they do.

    So do I believe in spirit to person communication? Most definitely.

    Thoes other threads must have been started before I joined. I never knew there were others.

    I think these beings exist ona different plane then we do. Only the gifted see them and the really gifted communicate to them. Its real hard to find someone who really can talk to them. Most are liars and cons. paranormal dosent necessarly mean haunted, the word means things that happen that cannot be explained.

    I've had a couple that could be either considered an experience or a coincidence!
    First one was 5 months after my father-in-law and my Dad had passed away..It was my Birthday and I was kind of sad because it was the first one I'd had without a call or a Birthday visit from my dad..that night I had a very very vivid dream it started with my Father-in-law just appearing in my kitchen looking extremely healthy and sitting down next to me and putting a comforting hand on my knee..I swear I actually felt it..I said You look fantastic but where's my Dad? then out of no where my dad just appeared in front of me smiled and stared intently into my eyes as if to say "it's ok." That's one..they say if you have a visitation dream you know it..and to this day I swear that my father-in-law brought my father through to wish me a Happy Birthday.

    When I was 18, I came home after school (I was newly married to a creep and pregnant). Anyway, I didn't smoke at the time and because of the pregnancy, I couldn't use hairspray because it would make me sick. So, I walk in, put some stuff away and all of a sudden smell a very strong scent of AquaNet and cigarette smoke. Well, my grandmother had died about a year before and she lacquered her hair with AquaNet and smoked like a chimney. It took me a few seconds for it to register, and out loud I said, "Grandma" and as soon as I said that, the smell was gone.

    My dad died in 2000. When he was alive he would always pat me on the head and tell me I was his favorite daughter. With that I would ask him, I'm your only daughter, right dad? I'm the only girl in a family of 5. After his death, I started feeling like someone was tapping me lightly on the back of the head. Again, it took me awhile for it to register. Finally, when I told my daughter about feeling something on the back of my head, she told me it must be grandpa because he always patted your head. DUH!!!

    I think my dad made appearances to my oldest grandson too when he was a baby. GS would babble to someone all the time and his eyes were focused like he was really looking at someone. One day when he was about 3, he was talking to someone in the doorway of his bedroom. When he was asked by his mom who he was talking to, he said "Grandpa". He had never seen a picture of my dad, so I went to find one and showed it to him and he said that was who he was talking to.

    I have never ( thank goodness) had anything like this. Boyfriend had for years; some of them what are sometimes classed as 'night terrors'. Not all. Some of them are extreme though so you may want to stop reading. Now the thing about him is he has no paranormal or spritual beliefs whatsoever-a complete atheist and so he does not believe these things are supernatural. He is has no further interest in these things apart from they are just 'something that happened to him,' they were awful and he learned to beat them and his friends will testify to his relative detachment. I forced the stories out of him;I say forced only because he knew how frightening it would be to me and so didn't want to tell. And it is.
    He remembers being about 3/4 years old and sitting on his bed at night-a shadow came through the wall as if passing through. it 'noticed' him, and turned towards him, as much as a dark shape can appear to turn. He then noticed tiny light pin pricks where eyes should be. It leaned down to his level until the pin pricks were pressed against his eyes. In his head was the most ear splitting 'white noise'. It seemed curious. It then moved away and carried on through the wall. I said weren't you terrified? he said no. I just accepted it. He and his sister saw a black silhouette shaped like their father ascend the stairs. He says he has seen this creature many times (tall, masculine with the pin pricks instead of eyes) and became very uncomfortable during the film 'The Grudge' where the girl is lying paralysed and this black thing with white eyes is just hovering inches from her face, observing her. Curious, but malevolent. Once he was lying in bed, facing the wall. He became aware that it was standing at the side of his bed, at his bak. it bent itself from it's standing position at the side of his bed over his body in an arc, so that it's head was upside down, inches from his face, pinprick eyes inches from his face bewteen his face and the wall. it stayed for a while watching him. He tried to relax and keep his eyes closed so it woud lose interest. It retracted its face back to the standing position behind him. Just as he let out his breath in relief, it suddenly snapped back, inches in front of his face upside down again. This is not a face, mind. Its a shadow with a vague tapering where the head should be with single points of light and not eyes.
    He is sometimes accompained by a haglike woman who sits on a 'sleeper's' chest, doing nothing but staring into their face and paralysing them with fear. Put it this way , when bf saw the Grudge, he said, that's it. that's it. it has actually been known for centuries over the years across different cultures. He hasn't told many people.

    this is Fuseli's the nightmare; He said Oh I used to see that horse when I was young. Totally matter of fact. (also note the thing sittin gon her chest;it really does seem to be universal).
    He said you know it is happening because you dream of, say, looking out of a window and seeing someone across the street looking out of another window at you at the same height-then it will change to someone looking up at you from the street outside your door, then another scene where someone is in your lobby, then they're at the door, then he has one of these 'attacks'. He has learnt certain techniques to tune it/them out and is totally matter of fact about it.

    This happened just over New Years to my brothers.

    My father passed on the first of December of last year. In the passing years my family always got together over New Years instead of Christmas to celebrate our holiday.

    My two brothers were on some poker site on the internet while at the dining room table at my sisters house. One of my brothers had a Pepsi he had recently opened, and the can was about 3/4 full. He picked it up to take a drink, sat it down, and it started sliding across the dining room table. Not just a bit, but like 8 or 9 inches. He had to reach out and pick up the can, as it was going to slide off the table. You know how sometimes a can will "skate" across a surface if it has sweat and a trail on which to slide? They checked the table, but there wasn't any water on the table at all.

    My dad always loved to play poker, so my brothers decided that this was Dad's way of saying that he was there.

    I had moved into a new apartment in 2000,one night I awoke just having had a dream of a friend who I had not seen in a few years. In the dream he was telling me to give him a phone call,that he needed to talk to me.After returning from work the next day I decided to call Mickey,and let him know that I had moved,and to catch up on what was going on in his life.After a few rings his wife answered the phone and when I asked to speak to Mickey,she told me he had been killed in an accident two weeks previous, and that she had been trying to locate me to let me know what happened, but to no avail as I had not left a fowarding address. We later met and I told her about my dream,we both agreed it was Mickey trying to let me know of his passing. She also told me that since the funeral she would not get out of bed,or could not even answer the phone but somehow she knew she had to answer the evenig I called.

    When my husband was killed I was driving to my mothers in another state. I heard this screaching and felt like the car was rolling over and my sister grabbed the wheel. I found out he was killed a few hours later on a car accident and the car had rolled over. right after our daughter died a few years ago I was going down 101 and a guy came up behind my jeep about 100 mph (not exagerating) I had no where to go and thought that this was it for me, the car filled with the smell of Jazmine and for some reason this guy plowed into the embankment and not me. Jazmine was my daughters favorite flower. I was shaking so bad I had to pull over. The cops arrived and came to ask me if I saw this accident and I told him
    what had happened and he asked me if I had spilled a bottle of perfume in the car, He actually smelled it too. I told him what had happened, and that the car just filled with that smell and that I thought my daughter had saved my life. He agreed with me and said this had happened to him after his mother died when he almost was killed in a high speed chase by a drunk driver! I will never forget the peace that came over me after he told me that. I knew where the Jazmine came from ..for sure.

    I've always been more open to sense and see things. It used to freak me out, but once I accepted it, I stopped being scared. One place I lived in had a ghost that would practice feng shui because it would always move my trash can. Drove me nuts.

    I house sat for a friend that lived in a historic district and one evening, I heard a plate scrape. I went to look and all the dishes were still stacked the same way after I washed them.

    An ex's grandmother hung around after she died in a car wreck. She would move things around. I knew it was her because both his parents were grossly obese and never went upstairs. It wasn't my ex because the stuff moved around were home accents and figurines.

    Lastly, no one likes going to my in-laws' house. Besides the witch that lives there (MIL, haha, couldn't resist), all my SILs say they get an ugly feeling and things have gone missing, ie, glasses. One SIL says she stopped making the kids spend the night there because they would always wake her up crying and say they were scared. I felt a stern feeling when I first went into the family room and knew it was an older man. I knew he wasn't harmful, just creeped out my SILs. Long story short, my husband was talking about the weird presence a couple of years later and I told him it liked to hang out in the family room, just to be around them. We finally figured out it was his grandfather after we spoke more about the similarities between the presence and the grandfather.

    Feng shui - tee hee! Love it.

    In ref. to returning relatives...if this is possible, I've always wondered why it happens to some and not others. I suppose a professional ghost hunter answer would be something like "unfinished earthly business" or in cases of spirits who don't show up they've decided to move on "into the light" or whatever. Another thought is that they're there but some people are able to receive incoming signals better than others.

I forced the stories out of him;I say forced only because he knew how frightening it would be to me and so didn't want to tell. And it is.
    He remembers being about 3/4 years old and sitting on his bed at night-a shadow came through the wall as if passing through. it 'noticed' him, and turned towards him, as much as a dark shape can appear to turn.

    This is just downright creepy. Has he done any research on shadow people?

    I never knew what these things were - I have seen a couple but thought I was out of my mind, and for that reason I wouldn't dare mention it. And, I couldn't put a name to them either, until one night I just happened on the Art Bell show and they were talking about them and I knew exactly what they were talking about and finally had a name.

    Creepy. The ones I've seen have never gotten up close and personal with me, but I saw them around my son when he was a newborn. As soon as I approached his room they vanished.

    I think the weirdest time happened at a Lodge in Ohio. I woke up and needed to go to the bathroom.
    I was about to get out of bed and saw a pair of legs hanging in the air next to the bed. They appeared to be men's legs and had ragged pants on and work boots. I hid under the covers. Then I flung myself out of the other side of the bed.
    Once in the bathroom I forced my brain to go blank of all fear and all emotion.
    When I finally came out, whatever or whoever was there was gone.

I thought this was all crap. He lived there 22 years and his stories were unbelievable. One night about 8 years back, I and a few others had too much to drink at a party and didn‚??t want to drive the 20 miles back home. I found a piece of couch and tried to get to sleep. Dead of summer and near 90 out and yet I was cold. I got up to find a cover. Then I heard footsteps coming down the stairs. I thought ‚??OK, they‚??re going to try and scare me, I‚??ll bite‚?Ě. I waited until the loud footsteps were right behind the door and opened it expecting to see someone. No one there but a burst of cold air. Then I heard the same sounds from the basement. I walked over drunken and had a lot of nerve. The steps came louder and when I seen a shadow under the door I yanked it open. Nothing. Come to find out my buddies was hearing the same thing. Drunk or not, we got out and headed home. I had an odd feeling for weeks. When he sold the house the new owners had a Priest come in and do his thing. You couldn‚??t pay me to spend a night in that place. I have to wonder about the ghosts who prowl their old digs in Hollywood and refuse to leave. [/SIZE]
    Does anyone else find it strange to be seeing resurected threads by prolific members who are no longer here?

    I know that there was some discord; and lots of petty bickering and personal insults; as useless as that is; especially in this place; but I don't know why they are gone and I miss their comments. I was never attacked by anyone; and I certainly do not take this seriously; or take offense; to any of the comments made here. Differences of opinion do not bother me.

    I'm not blaming the Mods; they did what they thought they needed to do; but some of these perspectives are missed, even in the face of discord; which can be the beginning of conversation.

    The house that my parents live in is haunted by at least one spirit. The one that both my brother and I have seen, and never talked about until well after I had moved out, and we'd both had experiences? Definite male. My brother has seen him more clearly than I have, as the ghost used to stand at the side of his bed and try to talk to him. But, I have heard him. Brother and I are both clairvoyant, but I'm the only clairaudient.

    That ghost led me out of my bedroom and down the hall one night when I was about ten. I saw a man in the doorway of my bedroom, and thought it was my uncle, and got out of bed and was going to keep following him, until my mother stopped me. She tells me that I mumbled something about following Uncle Ted, and she led me back to bed, and when she went back down the hallway, she felt the ghost, and told him to stay away from her children, or she'd remove him. He got the message.

    Now? He just messes around in the kitchen, or turns lights on in the living room that had been turned off. You can also hear him walking around in the attic section of the upstairs when everyone else in the house is accounted for. And it's a man's heavy footsteps,too.

    So, that was one of the first ghosts I experienced.

    My Granddad has been visiting me on occasion for a long time. Granddad died over 21 years ago, but I know when he's come to have a talk with me, because I can taste the coffee-milk he used to let me have when I'd spend the night with him and Granny (about an ounce of coffee, with a lot of milk and sugar), and still smell his King Edward cigars. They have a very distinct smell, and I smell that, taste the coffee-milk I drink during our conversations, and I can smell Granny's house, the scent of the roses she cuts when her rose bushes are in bloom, the biscuits she bakes, and so on. Generally, we have our conversations in dreams, but when I wake up, I know it was more than just a dream.

    Mr. K used to work for a restaurant I won't name for fear of legal repercussions (lawsuits suck), and we all had experiences at that one. When we'd be alone in the place, when he was opening, or closing, we could hear footsteps over the ceiling of the bar, in an area that you can't walk around in (it's a facade, and there's six inches of maneuverable space, total, not enough to pace back and forth), we'd see people go by who weren't there, and more than one person has heard their name called, and no one else was there. One night, after I stupidly got into the habit of telling the known resident ghost goodnight, I left the office where Mr. K was closing out the day, and was going to go back to the bar to hang out and wait for him to be done, and I saw a full body apparition of a man, and a deep booming voice saying, "Well, hello, Kate!" Holy Jumping Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ, I scared my husband so bad by fuh-REAKING out over that.

    However, I got a lesson that if you are clairaudient, you shouldn't speak to ghosts and not expect to get a response, because you WILL get a response.

    I'd love to take a tour of the Whaley House down San Diego way, but then again, we went to Long Beach to the Queen Mary one weekend, and I couldn't even get NEAR the Queen Mary, because I could feel the presence of spirits. And some of them weren't nice.

    So...if I ever do go to the Whaley House, I should probably be prepared to see and hear spirits. The place is reputed to be haunted, and I have seen the ghost of Kate Morgan around the Hotel Del before....
    the whaley house is no joke!!! sd city schools usually have a 5th grade camp ish like thing where all the 5th graders visit old town while the 6th graders are away in the mountains at 6th grade camp. that is the scariest place ever!

    That's pretty freaky. It's as if someone is sitting in it and using it. How it starts out slow and then "whatever" is in it, gains momentum and gets going. Also if you notice, the seat is sort of spread out, as if someone is "sitting" in it.

    Either fishing wire or strong magnets. Im not convinced its haunted as it would do other tricks like twirling round & round.

    This is too weird. I saw this same thing happen and I know it's not a trick. My husband and I were taking a walk. We cut through this place where people always say it's haunted....lights turn on and off for no reason/footsteps...that sort of thing. Anyway, as we were walking, I noticed one swing on a swingset swinging as if someone had just gotten off of it and the momentum still had it going. There was no breeze at all. the other swings were at a dead stop. We continued walking and getting closer to it, and it was still swinging. We sat for awhile and watched it, and it never stopped. It looked as though someone was on the swing swinging it. I swear. It sounds weird and I feel weird telling about it, but that's what we saw. There was nobody, nothing around it.

    There have been sightings of a blue light for many yrs near the old drivein out on the county road in Grafton NSW, Its unexplained and either ghostly or UFOly!
    Also the Catholic school I went to had a boarding school and the boarders and nuns always told the story of "Droopy Dora" Haha!, a sleepwalking boarder , who probebly shouldnt have boarded at a College right on the backs of the Clarence River, a huge river on the North Coast of Australia! Of course she drowned and haunted the corridors and rooms of the Boarding school!

    I just sent this link to my coworker. She's had the same thing happen at the park next door to her house! A swing and a merry-go-round. But of course, her house is haunted.

    We're taking a clairaudient and a clairvisionist (is that what they're called) over there to see WTF is going on.
