In Honor of
National Ghost Hunting Day
THIS IS ONE FOR ALL YOU PARANORMAL FANS OUT THERE, and really who doesn’t love a good ghost hunt? This is the day that officially opens the Halloween season. Although it is named as a national day in the United States, this is really a global holiday celebrated around the world.
Ghost hunting isn’t an activity that is relegated to hidden or obscure dark and crumbling ruins. There are many public and highly populated places in major cities that are believed to be haunted. For example, ghosts have been spotted in several areas of the White House in Washington, D.C., and those living in Scotland can find ghosts galore at Edinburgh Castle, though take care as they like to touch and pull visitors.
In England, you can hunt Ann Bolyen’s ghost in the Tower of London, though this is not for the faint of heart as she roams around headless. Given the number of ghastly executions at the Tower of London, it is no wonder that it is said to be haunted by many ghosts.
Volunteers at the events work to bring attention to various historical properties and educate the public about important preservation activities. There are numerous towns and properties that are available for hunting ghost in the United States and worldwide.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TO ASK
We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.
The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.
A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.
So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
