The dog is NOT happy

We have a Border Collie x Alsatian female dog (I hate the word bitch). All of a sudden it has taken fright at a television programme and becomes quite upset about it. It shakes, drools a little and is most unhappy - and what is this TV programme, is it some horror film with scary music? - no, it's BARGAIN HUNT!!!

I do wonder what the heck can be scary about dear old Tim Wonnacott and friends. I even wondered if it was the sound in some way, but no, even with the sound very low it still hates it. Weird!

Website Updated

At long last I have got round to updating the www.ghost-investigators.co.uk website. I have added more to the Investigators and the Links pages. If anyone out there would like a link adding then let me know (does this mean I am saying "Is there anybody there?" - probably!)

All in the mind?

Most old, disused buildings are spooky when night falls and the air is still. Every little creak and noise you would ordinarily ignore becomes terrifying. It becomes even worse if that old, disused building is a former asylum or mental hospital. We all have horrifying visions of all those old treatments that were administered donkeys years ago - they seem almost like torture. Things like electro convulsive therapy etc. What I am trying to say is that the former use of an old building can heighten the sense of fear and expectation. I daresay we wouldn't feel as scared in an old teddy bear factory as we would in some old high security mental institution. It is assumed that all these tortured souls have had a greater effect on the building and hence these places are more haunted - and we all think them to be haunted by bad spirits. I suppose that this is a remnant from the past for the feelings we have towards mental illness. These people weren't bad, merely ill.

If the stone tapes theories hold true and strong emotions can be absorbed into the magnetic resonance of the buildings then the logical conclusion is that these former institutions should be rich in residual hauntings. It would be interesting to see if that is scientifically true wouldn't it?
