The Hopkinson Vintage: Antiques and Art Centre on Station street in Nottingham has been around for one hundred and thirty years.
Originally the building was the site of Hopkinson LTD, which was an engineers merchant who sold their wares to various factories in the area.
Now it seems if the employees of Hopkinson Vintage are correct that the original owner of the site, Mrs. Hopkinson herself has come back to make sure things are still running smoothly at her former business.
One of the employees, Liam Woodgates noticed some disturbing footage one night on the shop’s CCTV camera system that gave a little more credence to the story that perhaps Mrs. Hopkinson was indeed roaming the sales floor…
Ghosts and spirits are not always Humans returning from the dead.
Animal ghosts are just as common as Human ones and one paranormal investigator believes he has captured a phantom kitty cat on video at the infamous Shanley Hotel.
This infamous ghost image took the internet by storm in 2003. It was originally published in the Chicago Sun-Times on December 21st of that year and was said to be a still of CCTV footage from the Hampton Court Palace, located on the Thames river in London, England.
Although the Hampton Court is ripe with tales of ghostly apparitions and strange occurrences, the picture of the robed figure was immediately a topic for debate for both believers and skeptics alike.
Was it an excellent ghost photograph or a clever hoax?
It may be February as I’m writing this and a week after Hallmark is done counting it’s blessings that Valentine’s Day comes once a year like clockwork, but as I was looking through my You Tube Halloween playlist I thought I’d share a few misc Halloween videos to warm up your Winter…
I was trying to think of something simple yet cool to post today as I am way too tired from work to try and do anything ‘heavy’.
As I just happened to be on You Tube, I figured I’d share some interesting, funny and creepy Halloween related videos I have seen over the years and we would start out with some really awesome Halloween scare pranks.
Bloody Mary…Bloody Mary..Bloody Mary…
That is the incantation that you are supposed to chant in front of a mirror if you want Bloody Mary to appear. It has been the highlight of many a Halloween party and children’s sleepover for decades.
However, before you summon Mary in all her variations or test your belief in the Bell Witch by saying an incantation in front of a mirror, science has to say a couple words on the matter and invites you to take a little visual test as well to prove it’s point.
This is an urban legend I once fell hook, line and sinker for.
I first heard of the ‘ghost boy’ who appeared in the film Three Men and a Baby when my dad told me about it after reading the story in a magazine. The story said that if you went to a certain part of the movie, a little boy could be seen in the background and that little boy had died in the apartment the film was shot in.
In short, the little boy in the background of the film…was a ghost.

Fortunately, I had the privilege of living very close to Bachelors Grove cemetery for many years and have visited it quite a few times. In fact, the first time I was there is the only time in my life that I might have had a ‘paranormal’ experience that I could not chalk up to circumstance or something logical and simple.
Bachelors Grove is also a tale of neglect and being forgotten, swept away by the constant march of time. It as much an ‘abandoned place’ as a haunted location.
Kells Irish pub was once the site of a mortuary in the early 1900’s and has become one of the most well known haunted locations in Seattle.
The ghosts here have caused mirrors and bar glasses to break, pulled plaster right down from the walls and ceiling and have even appeared at the bar for a drink to lift their spirits.

Email has become a basic part of our lives in the modern world.
But one function that probably was not on the minds of its first users and creators was to enable the living to talk to the dead.
However that is exactly what Jack Froese did when he sent a series of creepy emails to friends and relatives nine months after his death in 2009.
