An interview with Johnathon Ferguson


This is reblogged from my Lurking Musings blog where it featured as part of my Vampire Month special event. On Thursday this week, Johnathon will be talking in more detail about the Vampire Killing kit that the museum has in its collection.

Today we have an interview with Jonathan Ferguson, Curator of Firearms at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. He recently gave a talk entitled ‘How to kill a Vampire’ which I was lucky enough to attend and it was this talk which led me to approach him about a slot in Vampire month.

Ghost Haunts Senior Facility


We all know we gotta go sometime, and for many who get lucky enough to reach old age, they will live out the last years of their lives in some kind of senior care or assisted living facility.

Being that these locations would have been the site of numerous deaths during it’s time of operation, it should come as no surprise if one or two good ghost stories are tucked in there as well.

Such a story has come out of Grand Haven, Michigan, where nurses who work the second shift at the Grand Haven Assisted Living Facility say the ghost of a former deceased resident has come back to stay, along with numerous other strange occurrences.

Seattle Kids Part of Halloween Experiment in 1976


Halloween is a time for some creepy urban legends, most of which are more fiction then fact.

Recently, I wrote about my own Halloween related childhood urban legend for the Dolphin Talk newspaper out of Seadrift, Texas. It involved a reported ‘Witch’ who pulled kids inside her house when they went Trick or Treating.

This of course, was all hogwash, rubbish and fantasy.

It has been said however that truth can be stranger then fiction.

A recent post by the excellent website IO9 brought to light a psychological experiment conducted by researchers on Trick or Treaters in Seattle, Washington in the Fall of 1976.

Man Stabbed in Chest During Argument About Ghosts


Healthy debate on the question of whether ghosts really exist or not has been going on forever. Skeptics and believers alike have taken sides many times before on this matter, both in public and private.

To make real progress on any subject matter that has as much data and points of view as ghosts and the paranormal in general, the debate itself should follow a regimen of ground rules so healthy debate does not degenerate into something non productive.

Such as stabbing a man in the chest with a pair of Barber’s scissors.

The Story of Nan Clark

Thomas Spychalski:

A nice little urban legend/ghost story with some really beautiful photos to go along with it from the blog tea and Cakes.

They say it’s haunted and once a year Nan Clark herself makes an appearance, scaring the wits out of local passers-by who come to the fields to take a lovely stroll. I came across Nan Clarke’s Lane as an old school friend used to live on the house on the corner. It’s a beautiful part of North West London and the lane leads on to the most beautiful fields and woods where there are several horses and some of the most stunning houses you will ever see. However, the myth of Nan Clark does leave a slightly eerie feeling around the area as you head out walking your dog!

The Haunting of Al Capone

al-capone scary ghost

Al Capone is one of the most famous faces in the history of organized crime as well as one of the biggest ‘names’ of the twentieth century.

His legacy is forever entwined with that of the city he almost ran, Chicago, Illinois.

Alphonse Capone would move to the Windy City of Chicago in 1920 on the heels of crime boss and mentor Johnny Torrio. Torrio had hand picked Capone for his Chicago operations, where he hoped to be become rich with bootleg liquor sales in the wake of prohibition.

Eventually Capone would become a celebrity and a very powerful man no one wished to cross. It was after one of his most infamous acts of violence, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, that Capone would find himself haunted by the spirit of one of his victims.

A primary school in Bungoma County, Kenya was closed late last month after multiple girls between the ages of seven and twelve began to exhibit strange  behavior such as fainting, seizures, tics and other involuntary movements.
