Ghosts Are Real: My Experience

Ghosts Are Real: My Experience

Here’s my disclaimer: I do not like scary things.

Never in my life have I gone to see a horror movie and for perspective purposes, the movie “Signs” kept me restlessly awake for over a month.

So take that into consideration when I tell you that the idea of the paranormal scares the be-Jesus out of me. 

The funny thing about the paranormal is that it doesn’t care if you are scared, it will exist without you. That was case when I was growing up and is still the case today.

My first memorable experience with the paranormal was when I lived in Alden, NY.  I was just 4 years old at the time and woke up to the sounds of a party going on downstairs in my basement.  By party, I mean people laughing, talking loudly and music playing.  It was loud enough to wake me out of a sound sleep.  As I crept downstairs to sneak a peek at this party, I noticed that the lights were not on.  No one was down there.

Ghost Stories of the Roycroft Inn

Ghost Stories of the Roycroft Inn

Strange things have been seen and heard at the Roycroft Inn, located in the heart of East Aurora at 40 South Grove Street. Stepping on to the campus pushes you back in time as you view the Inn the way it looked when it was originally opened. It wouldn't be surprising if you saw a ghostly figure from the same time period as well ...

Dueling Double Rainbows

Dueling Double Rainbows

OK, so Marissa submitted her double rainbow photo from Wegman's parking lot on Amherst Street at about 5:30 p.m. yesterday (pointing out that "if you look hard enough there's a double rainbow on top"). Minutes later, Kim sent the photo below, taken from the back parking lot of the WGRZ TV station facing Franklin Street, near Chippewa.

So tell me, two different rainbows? Or the same rainbow seen from opposite directions? Does that even happen? 

How weird is that? 

(And how do you think this guy would react to our double double-rainbow?!)
