Solving Crimes with Psychic Abilities

In my recent Xomba article, Could Psychic Abilities Help Solve Crime? I discuss the television program, Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal, where children have been used to help solve crimes.

As a result of that article, a discussion ensued about the ethics in using children to help solve crimes. Some who commented were upset that anyone would subject a child to the trauma of experiencing a murder.

The problem with that reasoning, at least as it concerns the program, is that the children who appear on Psychic Kids already experience trauma every time they "hear" or "see" spirits.

To suggest recruiting kids for psychic experimentation (based on some of the comments) is so unethical, it never entered my mind, when I wrote the article, to consider the possibility that anyone would think I was condoning recruitment of kids for immoral purposes. a

And yet, don't some other countries recruit small children for warfare?

(I have to interrupt my own blog to ask – has our world lost its collective conscience? And yes, I can already hear the arguments against "collective conscience" arising, since the common terminology is "collective consciousness".)

Forget collective conscience – haven't adults been abusing children for their own purposes and pleasure for centuries? Everything from sex slaves and pornography to recruiting children to fight battles about which children know nothing, smacks of abuse in its most primitive form – in other words, people who lack a conscience abuse others because they haven't developed the spiritual, emotional, or intellectual aspects required of moral, ethical, and conscientious individuals.

From my perspective, Psychic Kids is not hurting these children by exposing them to crime scenes; Psychic Kids is HELPING these children who are already frightened by their psychic gifts. Chip Coffey, Edy Nathan, Chris Fleming, and Kim Russo, who appear on the show with the children, genuinely care about kids who suffer from the onslaught of images and sounds that enter their rooms and reek havoc on their minds.

These kids don't understand their psychic gifts, and the producers of Psychic Kids help them, not only understand their psychic gifts, but also utilize those psychic gifts for good.

And the "good" part is helping parents locate missing children, letting loved ones know where their sons or daughters, fathers or mothers, husbands or wives, friends or coworkers, might be buried. Not only do these children learn how to use their gifts to benefit others, but also they gain a sense of purpose. And one of the best side effects of learning how to deal with their gifts is an added sense of self esteem and worth.

When you combine psychic ability with DNA evidence, you can't help but wonder if psychic abilities would help law enforcement solve crime. And what about the mountains of cold case files that sit on detectives' desks – could psychic abilities help solve those crimes? Absolutely.

Imagine You Are Dead

Imagine that you are dead and that you died after having been murdered. Your spirit leaves your body and hovers above it. Your murderer, the person who killed you, washes his hands in your kitchen sink and runs tape across the carpet to pick up any fibers that might have been left behind had he not been so meticulous. He cleans the counters, the sink, and the floor with bleach.

You run to your neighbor to tell her to call the police. She ignores you. You pick up the phone to call your mother, but your hand has no mass and you can't hold the phone. Suddenly people fill your home and you try to tell them who killed you, but nobody can hear you.

And then one day, a young woman comes into your home. She not only sees you – she hears you. But not clearly. Your voice is muffled and soft because you no longer have vocal cords. She receives images from you and a picture of the man who murdered you. The artist draws a nearly perfect rendition.

The drawing is shown on television newscasts throughout the nation, and somebody calls in with a name. The man's DNA has appeared in the database before because of previous crimes. You helped to catch your own killer.

In the article, Could Psychic Abilities Help Solve Crimes? I discuss the possibility that DNA evidence, along with messages from beyond, could help murder victims solve their own crimes. I invite your comments.

The Clone Blog

What do you do when, for TWO WHOLE MONTHS, you have to deal with a ton of personal issues, including a car in need of more than a thousand dollars worth of repair, a broken vacuum cleaner with a warranty (but the nearest fix-it place is 50 miles away), a broken refrigerator (cost me several hundred dollars), a broken computer (would cost the price of a new computer to fix), no Internet connection (so even with a working computer, what difference would it make), seven blogs that cry for your attention, a memory that fails every now and then to remind you to take your cancer drugs and your asthma medicine, AND you take care of children all day long?

Well, I can't answer for you, but for me, I've decided to clone my blogs – at least this once.

Yessiree. If you go to any of my blogs (all of which are listed at the end of this blog), you will find that on this day, December 6, 2010, every single one of my blogs will say exactly the same thing as does this blog – assuming I don't get interrupted while I'm posting everywhere, that is.

So, without further ado (I don't think I've ever used that word before), here are a couple of (shortened versions of) blogs I would have written if I could have found the time and a working Internet connection:


When my hair began to grow after chemo destroyed it, I noticed about a thousand cowlicks EVERYWHERE. In other words, I continue to look as if I am permanently affixed to an invisible electrical socket.

My youngest daughter and I were sitting in the cafeteria at Barnes and Noble (one of my favorite places to visit) when I spotted two women, who at first appeared to be reflections of me in the windows and whose hair looked as ugly as mine did. Of course mine was hiding beneath Avon's Breast Cancer cap, so nobody could tell how truly ugly it was.

In complaining to my daughter about how horrible I felt, because every time I looked in the mirror I saw a frightening apparition, I decided to illustrate my sense of horror by pointing out the two women to her.

"See those two women sitting by the window with their short, ugly, no-style hair?" I asked my daughter. She discreetly turned around.

"That's how I feel," I continued.

"You feel gay?" she asked.

OK, before you get all uppity, know this: several people I know are gay, and one of my best friends is gay – I think HE would get a laugh out of my daughter's comment.


Everybody knows I have none – fashion sense, that is. I even wrote about my lack of fashion sense in my Weekend of Fashion blog, which I invite you to read by clicking the link.

Never had my lack of fashion sense been more apparent, though, than the year Jim Riordan shot his movie, Maddance, and one of his actors needed an outfit for a character she considered to be "trailer trashy."

Oh, what to wear, what to wear? Her eyes settled on me. I was wearing a broom skirt with a button down sleeveless top and a pair of sandals.

"That outfit, the one you're wearing. That would be perfect."

The #@%$&! What irks me even more is that I actually GAVE her my outfit!


Yes, I'll admit it. I have a temper. Some people might be surprised to learn that I do because I usually hide it, though not always very well. You can tell when I'm upset, though, because I sulk or become an absolute witch.

Seething with sarcasm, my eyes squint into slivers of hatred. I become a cartoon character of myself, and I really don't like ME when I act that way (though, believe me, I have plenty of reasons to be "witchy" sometimes). In spite of those reasons, I really TRY to be mature (at my age, you would think that would come naturally by now).

Sadly I can't always help myself, so I'd kind of like other people to step forward and slap my mind with things like, "Do you realize you're acting like a temper-tantrum-throwing child?" or  (sarcastically) "Yeah, it's all about you!" or (even more sarcastically) "Nobody else ever in the history of life itself has ever had as many problems as you do. You deserve the status of martyr. Give me the phone. I must call the Pope!"

When I act like the Wicked Witch of the West I don't understand why people don't just throw a house on me. Maybe my toes curling beneath the pressure of a house smashing me into the ground would be the catalyst for change and I would respond differently. I could smile and say chirpy little comments, like, "My car needs over a thousand dollars worth of repair – the Universe must be trying to tell me something." ("You're getting too old to drive, Nimwit!"), and, "My computer is so broken, it will cost me the price of a new computer to fix it, so the Universe must be trying to tell me something." ("You're the one who wanted to be a writer – maybe you should rethink you're 'ideal job'.")

Or, and this is just a thought, maybe people should start being more responsible for OTHER people, especially those – like me – who need…what? What do I need – a heavy dose of reality? No, thank you. I think I've had  plenty of that…a reminder that lots of people have it worse than I do? No, that won't work. Oh, how about ________ (fill in the blank – I'm trying out a new type of blog – interactive – how's that working for me)?

Oh, you know what? Just throw a house on me!

Hmm, you don't like my remedy for witchiness? Be gone! Before somebody throws a house on you!


Comcast is on my hits (rearrange the letters) list. For the past three years since I moved into my home I have had intermittent problems with my Internet connection, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I call them and they send a tech, without fail, the technician who arrives at my home to FIX (choke choke) the problem tells me that the guy who came before him didn't know what he was doing.


So, does that mean that for the past 3 years, every technician Comcast has sent to my home has been incompetent, or does Comcast hire egocentric techs with superiority complexes who believe that nobody but them knows how to properly connect a computer to the Internet?

Whatever. My Internet connection is in Illinois while I am in Virginia enjoying, in addition to attending to the needs of my grandchildren, a reliable Internet connection. Could the fact that I'm in Quantico, hub of the FBI and other government agencies, have anything to do with that, I wonder?

Despite the vacuum cleaner/computer/Internet/car/refrigerator problems I have been deftly dealing with over the past several months, I have managed to get a couple of articles and blogs written, the most recent of which is Paranormal Gifts for Your Paranormal Loved One.

In my Help For Single Parents blog, my most recent postings are:

Why Does the Tarot Scare People?

I see mystical signs along the highway sometimes – hands holding crystal balls with backdrops of the sun, the moon, and the stars. The signs let passersby know that inside the establishment behind the signs sits an entity ready to pull out Tarot cards, meditate upon a crystal ball, read tea leaves, or utilize any number of prophetic devices, and tell you your future.

The intrigue is enough to draw your attention, but do you really believe that cards hold the answers for you? Some people do. And I say, why not? If everything holds energy, what's to say that if you ask the Universe or God for answers to questions that have been plaguing you, and you want answers revealed to you through dreams or through the Tarot, why wouldn't you get an answer? And if the answer you receive helps you, what is the problem?

I wrote, Learning the Mysteries of the Tarot, because I wanted to explain the mysterious aspect of Tarot. One person, who was apparently disturbed by the fact that I didn't mention every single facet of Tarot, wrote – in three different comments (well, they appear to have been written by the same person) – how upsetting it was that I didn't enlighten readers with the fact that Tarot began as a card game. The intended reason for writing the article was to discuss the mysterious aspect of the Tarot, as indicated in the title.

So if you click the link to Learning the Mysteries of the Tarot, you will be brought to an article that discusses the mysterious aspect of the Tarot and not the history of Tarot. I realize I'm coming off sounding ultra-sarcastic, but I never thought I would have to explain a title as much as I've had to explain this one.

Interviewing the Dead

Have you ever wondered how an interview with a dead rock star might read? The innovative staff at Xomba joined forces with  Filter Magazine to create an imaginative contest in which the instructions were to interview a deceased musician. How could I resist?

I chose Jim Morrison, because, well, because he is dead. I might have chosen John Lennon, but I had just written an article about him on Associated Content Commemorating John Lennon's 70th Birthday, October 9, 2010. Click to read if you want.

So I chose Jim Morrison, mostly because I am familiar with him through James Riordan's book about him, Break on Through. Jim is a personal friend of mine, and he has a very engaging style of writing. Also, I'm proud to say that Oliver Stone used Jim's book when he directed the movie, The Doors.

So here it is – the point of this blog – my

Interview with Dead Rock Star Jim Morrison of the Doors (just click the link and you will be instantaneously connected to the afterlife).

I Have a Confession to Make

Associated Content is running a scary Halloween story contest. I entered with a Halloween story I had already written but had never published.

The contest called for a scary Halloween story of no more than 1,000 words. I had to cut the story down to 1,000 words. It now sits at exactly 1,000 words. Have I said 1,000 words enough?

The confession is this: while the Halloween story appears to be fictitious, it is, in fact, TRUE. What happened in A Halloween Paranormal Nightmare While Awake: Halloween Voices Won't Let You Sleep actually happened to me.

I invite you to read it and to comment on it. I don't know what will qualify for a winning entry, but I'm hoping mine will make it. It pays $100.

If you write for Associated Content, you have only a couple more days to enter your scary story. Let me know the url so I can read it.

A Haunting in Beverly – I DO Believe In Ghosts – I DO, I DO!

In the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago's south side, old, massive homes line some of the streets in a spooky Halloween-type setting where tree branches look as if they might reach out to grab unsuspecting motorists and plunge them into depths unknown. One of those homes on one of those streets belonged to my friend, Clare. Read more about this haunted house HERE.

What Do Spirits and Alcohol Have In Common?

You can call it alcohol, beer, wine, or even Happy Juice, but it all comes down to one thing – have enough of it and you will get drunk.

Have you ever thought about what happens to you when you drink too much? Other than getting a little "tipsy" or even slovenly drunk, does anything else happen to your body or to your mind? Maybe something you don't remember?

The article, Spirits and Alcohol, explores the possibility that people who ingest too much alcohol unknowingly invite spirits to enter their bodies and take control. Consider people who experience blackouts. This article explores one possibility to explain why people who drink too much alcohol can't remember what they did, what they said, or even where they were.

Maybe another reason exists to explain why alcohol is sometimes referred to as spirits. Read Spirits and Alcohol and see if you agree.

Who are the REAL monsters?

If I mention Godzilla or Zombies, Frankenstein or Shapeshifters, do you see in your mind the same types of images as you would with monstrosities such as John Wayne Gacy or Ted Bundy? How about Charles Manson?

When kids have nightmares about monsters, are the monsters imaginary or do the monsters stand for somebody real, somebody in the child's life, somebody they substitute for Mom or Dad, Aunt or Uncle, Brother or Sister?

Monsters in Modern Times explores monsters and links you to every imaginable monster ever created, dead or alive. Click the link to read about monsters you may have already heard existed, and maybe even some you never knew roamed the Earth.

If you've had any weird dreams about monsters, I invite you to visit Your Weird Dreams and send your monster dreams to the email address listed in the blog.

Giovanna, an Italian Woman Impregnated by Aliens

If you haven't heard yet, an Italian woman claims to have been impregnated by aliens. What you see is an alleged photo of the fetus that was aborted from her.

Though I believe in a lot of metaphysical and paranormal ideas, and though the thought of aliens visiting our planet doesn't seem at all alien (forgive the play on words) to me, I have a difficult time believing a woman who claims to have been impregnated by aliens many times.

To find out about what happened to her and all of her pregnancies and to see the amazing video about Giovanna, I invite you to click the link: Giovanna, an Italian Woman Impregnated by Aliens.

Nightmares and the Paranormal

I invite you to click on the links to read about the dream. I would also like to invite you to submit your weird dreams to

Why Don't Paranormal Investigators Use Kirlian Photography?

Kirlian photography is a method of photographing energy, making something typically invisible visible. As emotions between people become charged with different vibrations, the energy between them changes, and Kirlian photographers have caught the change and interchange of energy in Kirlian photographs.

While many skeptics claim that nothing at all can be proved with the Kirlian method, believers say that Kirlian photographs capture the energy emanating from the object being photographed. As I relate in my article, Kirlian Photography Shows Spirit Connections in Close Relationships, I wonder why paranormal investigators don't use Kirlian photography in their attempts to prove the existence of spirits. (In that article I link to another article about Kirlian Photography that discusses how the Kirlian method came about.)

It seems to me that if Kirlian photography showed the existence of spirits, paranormal investigators would include it as part of their investigative tools.

Kirlian photography is a subject that is more paranormal than it is metaphysical, and in my article Paranormal and Metaphysical: What's The Difference, I explain the distinction (or lack of distinction) between the two.

While metaphysics concerns itself with the more spiritual aspects of our existence, the paranormal is more concerned with the afterlife and has a "creepiness" factor that metaphysics doesn't. In other words, if you're thinking "ghost," you're thinking paranormal; if you're thinking "spirit," you're thinking metaphysical.

As I mention in the article posted above, paranormal falls under the umbrella of metaphysical, so Kirlian photography would be an interest both paranormal and metaphysical.  To learn more about Kirlian Photography, I've included a link to a book with the same name.

Use of Candles, Torches, and Fire in Rituals

I have always been mesmerized by candles and fire. I remember lighting rolled-up paper as a teenager and watching it burn. If my parents had known, they might have sent me to a therapist, but they never did (and unless they are reading this now, they'll never find out).

Don't get me wrong – I'm not a pyromaniac, but I love campfires, fireplaces, candles, fireworks, and anything fire related.

So when it came time to come up with an idea for my new Xomba article, I wanted to investigate fire rituals and I learned about some rituals I'd never known existed. I even found some videos of fire rituals, which I link in the article.

Fire can be peaceful, but it can also be destructive; its power enchants, but it also annihilates.

As you might guess, I prefer its more relaxing meditative qualities, and I enjoy a room filled with fragrant candles. Anybody who purchases candles as gifts for me knows that I will use them (if I'm not allergic to the fragrance).

If fire interests you and you would like to read Use of Candles, Torches, and Fire in Rituals, please click the link.

Spirit Connections & Ghost Hunting

Kirlian Imaging Device

Relationships form for a variety of reasons. Marriage, parenting, friendship all have their own unique spiritual and physical connections. And while some relationships are closer than others, all relationships share one thing in common – energy.

People talk of sparks flying between two people who are attracted to each other, of a certain comfortable feeling that exists when people are in loving relationships, and in antagonistic relationships, a malevolent form of energy. Because energy never dies, the closer we are in life, the more probable a spirit will try to connect with us in death.

Kirlian photography is a technique using a Kirlian Imaging Device that purports to capture energy on film. Numerous experiments have been conducted using the Kirlian process.

Without the camera, we cannot see energy, but we know it exists. In spirits left behind, sensitive people feel the energy that once propelled the person in life.

Though some of the ghost hunting shows use infrared cameras and motion sensors to detect spirit activity, I can't help but wonder why programs such as Ghost Adventures or Paranormal State don't use Kirlian cameras to find ghosts.

To read more about spiritual bonds that extend beyond this life, read Spirit Connections in Close Relationships.

Noah's Ark and Belief

Have a Little Faith: A True Story With so much recent talk about Noah's Ark, you would think the find was brand new. But according to  Noah's Ark Found on Mt. Ararat? and numerous other sources cited in the article, the discovery was made long ago by other explorers.

So why do I bring up Noah's Ark in a paranormal blog? Because paranormal means, "not scientifically explainable," and apparently anything that cannot be proven and explained using our five physical senses falls into the category of paranormal.


Except when belief is present. Ask anyone who believes in the Bible if they believe in Noah's Ark, and you will find that yes, it exists exactly where the Bible says it exists, on Mt. Ararat.

Now comes the time for proof – for some people. If Noah's Ark has proven to be as old as the Bible indicates it is – by carbon dating performed with the aid of science – will people finally believe that the Ark was built during the time of Noah?

But wait – just because the Ark was built during that time period, does that necessarily mean that the Ark belonged to Noah?

That's when faith enters the picture. Faith is not scientifically explainable. Belief is not scientifically explainable. But just because you can't see it, hear it, touch it, taste it, or smell it, does that mean that it doesn't exist?

Maybe we could all use a little faith. Have a Little Faith: A True Story.

Allison DuBois

One of my favorite programs is Medium. I watch it religiously. I probably would watch it even if it weren't based on fact, but the show is all the more interesting because Allison DuBois is a real-life psychic medium who actually sees dead people.

My latest paranormal article is entitled Psychic Medium Allison DuBois and it tells the reader a little bit about how the show began and how close to Patricia Arquette's portrayal of Allison the real Allison actually is.

If you would like to read Psychic Medium Allison DuBois, click any of the links in this blog.

In tonight's episode, Allison and her daughters are haunted by the same dream.

Are You Psychic?

If you've ever wondered about your own psychic abilities, you'll want to read the article, Are You Psychic?

Premonitions, dreams, intuition, perceptions, fleeting thoughts, all play a role in psychic phenomena. I list several psychic experiences in the article, some of which you might be able to relate to. I even offer some help if you want to develop your own psychic abilities.

ESP (extra sensory perception) is not as mysterious as it sounds and it can be developed.

As I mention in the article, Are You Psychic? everybody is psychic, and that includes you.

So the answer to the question is a resounding YES!

Ghost Hunting Tools

If you watch any of the ghost hunting shows, you've heard about the Ovilus and the Paranormal Puck.

Daily Horoscopes – How Accurate Are They?

If you follow your daily horoscope, you probably fall into that small percentage of people who believe that those little words of wisdom actually apply to you.

 If you don't read your daily horoscope, or if you read it only for fun, you probably wonder why anybody would believe in horoscopes and why interest in them has lasted for so many years.

When you consider that only twelve signs appear in an astrology chart, you recognize that each little blurb represents 1/12th of the population. Is your day really going to be exactly like that of 1/12th the population? Doubtful.

But if you recognize that you are more than just a sun sign and that other planetary energies and configurations figure prominently in a profile that explains only you, you might be interested in reading Why Daily Horoscopes Don't Work.

The chart shown above belongs to Stephen King. The symbols represent planets and signs, and they are placed in houses (pie shaped) that represent different areas of your life. Astrology charts (or horoscopes) are far more complicated than are horoscopes that appear in newspapers or online.

Why Daily Horoscopes Don't Work also provides information about how you can get an accurate FREE reading of a chart that applies only to you based on your birth time, birth place, and birth date. Give it a try and discover why daily horoscopes don't work.

Blog Carnival Submissions February 5, 2010

First up for submission in the Blog Carnival is the web site All About Movies for their review on the movie, Paranormal Activity. They provide both a positive and negative viewpoint, along with a rating and a "bottom line." For their review on Paranormal Activity, click All About Movies. They also provide numerous other movie reviews in their A-Z category. Check them out for movie reviews before you spend your money.

Next up in the Blog Carnival is Axel G, a web site devoted to "Personal Development That Works!" This web site discusses such things as health, success, emotions, happiness, meditation, spirituality, and more. It even has a section devoted to Eckhart Tolle, author of A New Earth and The Power of Now. To get a good idea of the feel for this site, read Subtle Intuitions. And for ways to develop your spirituality, check out more of Axel G's web site.

Next up in the Blog Carnival is Satellite TV Guru.  Not only does this web site offer satellite tv guides, it also offers coverage of current programs. February 4th, for instance, covered the newest episode of Supernatural, and it provides coverage for another one of my favorite programs, Fringe Season 2 Episode 13: What Lies Below. With links to the best Plasma TVs and online television, Satellite TV Guru is so much more than just a sales pitch for satellite television.

Star Costumes, another Blog Carnival entry, offers a wide variety of costumes for children and adults, including werewolves (where the previous link will take you). Read the blog post 7 Lies About Werewolves You Learned from Movies (seven of the biggest myths about werewolf myths the movie industry wants you to believe) and then check out the costume categories. From makeup to wigs to vampire costumes, Star Costumes has it all.

A surprising entry into this Blog Carnival is one that comes from Bible College. Surprising because this blog is a paranormal blog. But I'm including it, because it verifies my belief that just because somebody believes in paranormal activity doesn't mean she doesn't believe in God. Bible College considers itself to be "The Best Online Bible Colleges" web presence. And it provides the Top 50 Ecumenical Blogs for its readers. If you're interested in obtaining grants or scholarships Bible College offers those as well.

Another entry into the Blog Carnival is 100 Free Classic Films Everyone Should See. Some surprising and some not so surprising movies make this lists.

As I write this blog, snow storms are expected across the Midwest and Eastern part of The United States. Cozy up and check out 100 Free Classic Films Everyone Should See.

Last on our list of Blog Carnival entries is Christian Websites. A Born Again Church And Christian Websites presence, this spiritual submission discusses such issues as Love or Sex, Lost Sheep, Prodigal Son, Will of God, as well as the Rewards of Faith and what it means to be a Rich Christian.

Well, there you have it, all Blog Carnival entries for February 5, 2010. Click away!

Past Life – Another New Paranormal Show!

A new show, Past Life, scheduled to air on Fox Thursday, February 11, 2010 at 8:00 Eastern and 7 Central time, was inspired by the book, "The Reincarnationist," written by M. J. Rose. Past Life consists of past-life detectives who investigate current lives to determine if what his happening now is a result of past lives.

David Hudgins (who wrote "Friday Night Lights") brings together Dr. Malachi Talmadge (played by Richard Schiff), Dr. Kate Mcginn (played by Kelli Giddish), and Price Whatley (played by Nicholas Bishop) who solve mysteries of troubled clients when they expose their clients' past lives.

I could have written Past Life myself. I came up with this idea years ago. Of course my idea was a little different. I wanted to call mine, "These Are Your Lives!" and mine was supposed to be a game show where contestants would tune into people's homes and tell viewers why their past lives contributed to their current lives. In my Past Life show, by merely tuning into the program, because television sets in my Past Life program were set up to tape whoever tuned into the program, viewers agreed to be on the show. If only I had followed through with my idea.

Oh, well, now I can watch my idea get played out a little differently on this new program, Past Life.

Invitation to a Blog Carnival

Welcome to the first edition of the Paranormal Minds Blog Carnival. If you've experienced any paranormal activity and you would like to share your paranormal experiences with me, please post them below and I will add your experiences to future blogs.

Ghostly visitations, UFO activity, ESP experiences, or whatever falls into the category of paranormal are accepted.

Need a jump-start on your memories? Read one or both of the following two articles and let me refresh them for you.

Spirits of Ghosts – True Ghost Stories

A True Chicago Haunting: It's Halloween Every Day in a Haunted House

And if you stumbled across this blog and are wondering what a blog carnival is, click this link for Blog Carnival for more information. It's kind of like joining a circus of blogs without ever leaving home.

See earlier Paranormal Minds blogs for a deeper look into what makes for paranormal minds.
