PRESERVING HISTORY: Hauntings: To believe or not?
Updated: November 01, 2013 - 1:30 pm

What better time to talk about ghosts than on October 31? I cannot say that I believe in them, at least not persuasively.  But then again, I cannot say that I do not believe in them, either.  To further complicate the issue, I cannot confirm one way or another if I have ever had an encounter with such a spirit.  According to a friend with far more knowledge than I, I may have had numerous encounters and simply not recognized them for what they were or are.

So, off I went to shop for a new sofa and yes, a new bed for the guest room.
