Water Fountain Suitable Only For Ghosts

Jim and I had a 2 night getaway to Monterey earlier this month, and found a walled off hot tub, no longer in use. Alongside of it was an equally unused water fountain. Made me think that only the ghosts of nearby Cannery Row might be able to tolerate it.

Santa Clara County Spooky Spots

Did you know that SanJose.com (A City Guide by Boulevards) has a section devoted to the spooky spots around the county?

http://www.sanjose.com/guides/haunted-places-and-spooky-urban-legends/

Individuals who’ve grown up in or around San Jose, CA probably already know most of these creepy corridors and corners, but those who are new to the area might be interested in this little compilation of hauntings and urban legends published on SanJose.com. Whether you’re on the hunt for ghosts or not, each spot has a colorful story that will enlighten you to the history of the valley. So, stir your curiosity and learn about the myths of Hicks Road, the man who haunts a Toys R Us, and the residual energies of spirits in schools.

Extreme Makeover: Haunted House Edition

Jeffrey WandsABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition contacted me last summer, explaining that they wanted to do a haunted house. I had a fun talk with the gal in that office, we chatted for about a half hour and I gave her a bunch of names of folks who might be helpful in that endeavor. One of them is Jeffrey Wands (see blogroll, my list of resources in left sidebar). This last Sunday, that episode aired, and Jeffrey did a fantastic job, and so did the cast.

If you’d like to know more about the show, visit the ABC Extreme Makeovr Home Edition site.  To watch the Haunted Episode, go to the “Watch Online Now” section and select the Ray-Smith Family’s episode. Enjoy!

Just Moved!

We (Haunted Real Estate Blog) have just moved. The new permanent URL will be simply www.HauntedRealEstateBlog.com (instead of www.HauntedRealEstateBlog.Wordpress.com). Several days ago I signed up for hosting at GoDaddy, and my 17 year old whiz kid son has been getting things set up so that this blog could be moved to the new “place” on the web. It’s going to take me a little while to get the look and feel the way I want it and to learn the ins and outs of how to run the blog from the new location. My understanding is that if I host it myself, instead of on the wordpress.com site, I have a little more leeway and ability to add bells and whistles.

Thanks in advance for your patience. Meanwhile, please visit my page at www.HauntedRealEstate.com for other interesting stuff along these lines!
