The Plough Pub in the Village of Prestbury in Cheltenham, England has become a place where the spirits are not just in the wine and lager.
Pub owner Cathy Richards claims that she has multiple ghosts haunting The Plough and she called in a psychic medium to find out just who was staying at her establishment past closing time.
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?
Over the years, the story of what happened to the Lutz family over twenty-eight days in 1975/1976 has taken on a life all its own.
Countless films, books, websites and television programs have been devoted to either getting to the bottom of the haunting and the infamous DeFeo murders that preceded it, or using inspiration from the case to inspire fiction.
Numerous debates and conspiracy theories have surfaced about the case on everything from how all six murder victims were found shot, most of them face down in their beds, to the credibility of the infamous Amityville ‘ghost boy’ photo.
A recent news item published on The Jamaica Online Star website claims that a house was burnt to the ground by a naughty spirit in Junction, Jamaica.
The fire, which was also confirmed by the Junction Police Department, seems to have been blamed on a poltergeist like entity that has been haunting the family in that home for weeks, according to local residents.
A grisly discovery was made earlier this week in the Midwood area of Brooklyn where a body was found in a basement after the foul odor of decomposition alerted the neighbors.
On Monday, June 3rd at around ten PM, the remains of a fifty-seven year old woman was removed from the two family home.
But the curious part is the note that was left near the body that suggested the woman was killed for performing witchcraft.
An amazing photograph taken in Kirtland, Ohio appears to show a ghostly figure behind a small girl battling leukemia at the time the photo was taken.
However, Erin Potter’s mother, Jen, thinks the figure is not that of a spirit from beyond the grave, but rather a vision of the Virgin Mary and for Jen and her family one of the reasons Erin is now cancer free.
When thinking of ghost pictures, we may think of the classics we have known since most of us were kids, like or The Newby Church Monk.
However, there have also been some interesting pictures taken in the twentieth and twenty-first century as well, like the Brown Lady, the Amityville Ghost Boy or the ghost captured on film at Boot Hill Cemetery in Arizona.
One of the more remarkable examples of ghost photography from more modern times has been the case of the photograph taken by one Denise Russell.
Denise innocently took a photo of her grandmother at a picnic and eventually discovered that the picture also showed a figure that looked like her grandmother’s husband, who had passed away almost exactly twelve years ago from the day the photo at the picnic was taken.
Now, after the amazing events in Cleavland, Ohio, where kidnapping victims Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were recovered alive after being held captive for years in the home of Ariel Castro, another false prediction comes to light.
Sylvia Browne claimed Amanda Berry was dead on the Montel Williams show in 2004.
While staying in a Soho hotel during a 2009 tour, singer and actress Miley Cyrus claims that she also had a meeting with the supernatural as well, including seeing the ghost of a little boy and doing a little investigative work on the property, a former bakery.
Beer has always gone hand in hand with some of our most beloved pastimes and indulgences, such as billiards and darts, baseball, a nice relaxing trip to the bar or pub after a busy day or pizza.
However, if the makers of Olympia Beer are correct, there maybe another thing that goes along perfectly with beer.
Or more precisely, catching Bigfoot and walking off with a cool one million dollar prize…

I started this site for many reasons….to inform, to educate and because I get news items in my feeds about a ghost that seems intent on stealing some buds of quality marijuana.
See what I mean, where else can you get to write sentences like that one without being high yourself?
Yet that is what one grower of the infamous green leafed plant claims happened recently in his greenhouse.
For most of us, toy stores conjure up childhood images of fun, freedom and imagination.
However, a Toys R Us location in Sunnyvale California has become more well known as a place of terror then pleasure.
It is said that a ghost resides in the shop, a ghost searching for a lost love.

Considering that our last Haunting Tale came from one of the ghost segments of the show Unsolved Mysteries, I was hesitant to use another case that was so popular from the show.
That was before I ran into the video segment online for the Tallman’s Ghost case, which covered the story of Debbie and Allen Tallman, who thought they had found a perfect house for their family on Larrabee Street in Horicon, Wisconsin.
However, just months after moving in, the entire family was chased from the home by what seemed to be a poltergeist type of haunting that some say bordered on the demonic.
Others say that Debbie and Allen Tallman were out of their depth when buying the house, and made the story up to escape a house they could not afford.
So what did reside in the house on Larrabee Street? Was it a cold demonic force, a pesky poltergeist or the results of mistaking the normal for the extra ordinary or even fraud?
Graveyards are one of those places that you just might expect to capture a photograph of a ghost or spirit. After all, it is the final resting place of our physical forms and has an obvious connection with death and whatever might lay beyond it.
So it might not come as a shock to anyone that one of the most famous ghost photos in the world came from a cemetery.
Even more impressive, the ghost seemed keen to get a ride to some destination in the physical world as the picture itself shows the spirit sitting in the back of a car!
Ng Goon Lau, sixty two, used to work the Hong Kong real estate market to his advantage. He had no financial problems and although his path to riches was a bit off the beaten path, it certainly worked like a charm.
Ng bought and sold real estate in one of the most superstitious cities in China, if not the world. So Ng made use of this fact by dealing in property that he could buy at remarkable discounts.
Because the property’s Ng dealt in were said to be haunted.
The first of many Haunting Tales comes from an old Unsolved Mysteries episode from the late nineties.
It tells the story of a apparent Poltergeist type haunting in the brush lands of Texas at the Three Partners Ranch, a three thousand acre piece of land in Central Texas. There, a very loud spirit would bang on the walls and pound across the floor as it stalked the halls of the ranch three men had bought as a business venture.
It has the look of a place where you might expect to find the undead. In fact, St. Mary’s Church in Whitby‘s atmosphere is so heavily drenched in creepiness then it inspired no less then the creator of one of the most iconic horror icons of all time, Bram Stoker and his vampire creation Count Dracula.
Lately, though the village of Whitby has a new problem caused by the church. It’s getting rid of the bones in it’s graveyard spits right into the backyards of Whitby’s residents.
On December, 20th, 2012, amateur astronomer Elijah Prychodzko was gazing into the sky in Sacramento, California when a sudden flash of light seen through his telescope caught his attention.
Prychodzko placed his smartphone’s camera lens against the eyepiece of his telescope and recorded what seemed to be a disc exploding in the sky.
The story made some headlines in the local news and online earlier this year but despite the amazing video evidence, this UFO may be a little more down to Earth…
You never can tell what they are going to do once they enter your lives. Cold spots, doors closing, objects tossed across the room, strange sounds like footsteps and voices…and now theft.
At least that seems to be the case for one spirit in Winder, Georgia, who haunts the home of forty year old Debbie Michelle Zamacona. The ghostly criminal reportedly made off with a resume roughly valued at five-thousand dollars and a black and blue blouse, according to a police report.
