Wanna Be A Nanny In A Haunted House?

You can do it! A couple in Scotland is willing to pay $64,000 a year, plus a month’s worth of vacation days, to anyone who is willing to move in and help out with their two young children. You’ll get your own big bedroom with private kitchen and en-suite, and you’ll have to be there alone with the kids for up to 4 days a week as the couple travels for work. You’ll just have to put up with the resident ghosts, too.

Apparently 5 different nannies have quit in the last year. Since they’ve put it out there they’ve received thousands of inquiries about the position, but at the rate they go through nannies, get your name in there anyway if interested. You might just land the gig!

Oh, bonus, the house is huge, remote, and old. It looks super creepy awesome!

Check it out!

The Inn Pt. 14

My wife was at work the other night when a couple of things happened to her.

First, she was making her lunch in the microwave in the tiny office behind the front desk where she works. Only her and her coworker were there, the security guy was out doing his rounds. Her food cooked and she took it out, then shut the door to the microwave. She went and sat down at the front desk next to her coworker and a minute later, the microwave door slammed shut again.

A little while later she went to the bathroom. I’ve talked about how creepy those bathrooms are, and they are connected by a single entry or foyer. There are two water fountains there, then you turn left for the women’s, or right for the men’s. So naturally if the men’s room is creepy, then surely the women’s has to have stuff going on too, right?

She had finished her business and washed her hands. Suddenly she heard a woman laughing loudly, and she said it sounded as if the woman was right on the other side of the wall near the water fountains. With her hands still wet, she walked around the wall to see who it was, since it was late at night and the woman was very loud.

Only she never found the woman. She checked the men’s room, up and down the hall, the lobby. No woman.

Haunted Places: Hoia Baciu Forest

The Hoia Baciu Forest in Transylvania, Romania, is supposed to be one of the most haunted places on earth, which makes sense considering it’s in TRANSYLVANIA!

Trees grow really weird there. But they're not overly sensitive about it.

Oh, anyway, some people call it the Bermuda Triangle of Romania. A lot of weird stuff happens there, UFOs are seen and photographed, people go missing, dogs and cats living together…

Destination Truth did an episode there. Some crazy things happened to them, but I’m not entirely convinced it wasn’t set up. I stopped watching the show after that episode.

Supposed UFO flying above the forest caught on film in the 60s.

And when you book your trip to go snooping around there, let me know so I can go with you!

I’m Behind You…

I was sent a message on Facebook from a buddy of mine who recently sent me the farmhouse pic. A friend of his (the girl in the picture) sent him this picture and has given permission to post it. This comes from Colorado.

Originally I was skeptic about it, and still am to a point. But, since I have no proof either way, I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt. Take a good look at it (not the girl, although I’d be guilty of that too!) and tell me what you think. Real or no?

Originally I thought it was a mirror behind her, but I’ve received word that it’s a microwave, which would explain the graininess of the face.

An interesting side note, when I was first given this picture and skeptic, I decided to do some photo manipulation of it to see if I could come up with anything that would help me prove it was a fake. I use GIMP for that process, and when I tried loading the picture in GIMP, GIMP force closed. Each and every time. Never had that issue before.

I put it in Microsoft Paint to change the file type, and had the issue there as well. Eventually I got the file type changed and got to open it in GIMP, but couldn’t find anything to say it was a fake. Later, I tried opening it in GIMP again and had the same issue with both files. I still have no idea why.

The Inn Pt. 13

Last night I was at the Inn, and shortly after everyone cleared from the lobby, I decided I had to use the bathroom. I’ve mentioned before how I’ve had paranormal experiences in the lobby bathroom.

I walked down the hall towards the bathroom, and there were two younger girls in front of me running off to their rooms. They passed the bathrooms. When I got close enough to see in to the entrance of the bathrooms, I saw something.

The bathrooms have are connected by an entrance where there are two water fountains. The women’s restroom goes off to the left from there, the men’s to the right, and there are no doors. You just walk around a corner and you’re in. As I came up to the bathrooms I looked up at the wall you have to walk around to go into the men’s room and I saw a foot disappear behind it, like someone was going in to the bathroom before me. It was someone wearing shorts, because I saw skin. It was a white leg with hair on it, white sock, and red tennis shoe. This is how clearly I saw it.

I didn’t see this person walking up to the bathroom, but they could have been standing at the water fountain getting a drink. I looked over at the fountains and saw a large cup sitting on top of one, so that’s what I figured that person had been doing. I even thought how strange it had been that they didn’t take the cup with them into the bathroom. There’s a counter in there, and two garbage cans. They didn’t have to leave it on the fountain and out in the open.

As soon as I turned the corner and entered the bathroom I didn’t see anybody, so when I walked past the sinks I looked over and didn’t see anybody. I then walked past the urinals and again, saw nobody. I walked all the way to the end of the bathroom to use the last stall, like I always do, and I looked into each stall on the way there.

I was the only one in the bathroom.

With A Little Help From My Friends

A good friend of mine just posted a picture on Facebook (below) that was given to him from one of his mother’s friends. Unfortunately, the farm house she lives in out in Goshen, Ohio caught fire and her and her husband had to evacuate. Later, while she was taking pictures for the insurance company, one of the firemen came up to her and said it was a good thing she closed one of the doors (I believe the door in the picture), or the whole house would have burned down. Her husband said he didn’t close the door, he was carrying his wife and they just ran out of the house.

Apparently the original owners love that house so much they’ve stuck around to keep it as safe as possible. They are not on the wall, they only appeared in this photo that was taken for the insurance company.

I was messing around with the picture, trying to lighten it and darken it and just basically seeing if I could get a better look at the couple. While nothing great came from it (because I’m not THAT good at doing that sort of thing), I did look at the picture long enough to make out what I think is the woman’s smile (open lips, teeth showing) and the man’s hand, including his fingers. Very interesting picture.

Thanks Don! I hope their house gets fixed up soon and they can move back in.

The Inn Pt. 12

Well, the Inn’s been busy lately. And I don’t mean from guests. Although they’ve been that, too.

My wife just startled me to tell me she couldn’t believe she forgot to tell me this. Last night her reports printed, so she went down to the first floor to get them. When she came back, she was waiting at the elevator. For whatever reason, the music that typically plays constantly right there was off, and things were quiet.

Suddenly, she heard a man behind her say loudly, “I didn’t tell you my name!” She spun around and nobody was there. Anywhere.

What’s interesting about this is, it happened at exactly 3:45 AM. What was said makes it more interesting.

You might remember I told you about how the phone at the front desk rang and when she answered it nobody was there. The call came from the GM’s office. The second time it rang that night was at that host kiosk at the top of the steps, also from the GM’s office, also dead air. And there was nobody in the GM’s office to make those calls. The second call, at the top of the steps, came at exactly 3:45 AM.

The bottom of those steps is exactly where my wife was standing while waiting on the elevator. And apparently, whoever called from inside the GM’s office was upset that she never gave him a chance to tell her his name.

Looks like 3:45 is when I’m going to be doing some investigating the next time I’m there over night with her, which will be in two days.
