Last night I finished reading Echoes of a Haunting: Revisited by Clara M. Miller.
This is the story of the Hinsdale House aka The Dandy House.
The author, Clara lived in a rural home in the early 70s in Hinsdale, NY that had an overwhelming amount of paranormal activity on the inside as well as the outside. I have no idea what took me so long in familiarizing myself with this case. Now that I’ve read the book, I’ve researched other avenues via Internet, too. I have read articles, watched videos, looked at Facebook pages…everything.
There’s only been two books written about the property. Of course, the aforementioned…and the other being You Know They’re Here by Paul J. Kenyon, who is a friend of Clara and her family and was present for much of the occurrences.
What I find so thrilling, is that there is still a lot of activity going on there today. Usually, when I read about haunted locations they either (a) not haunted anymore or (b) the activity isn’t really worth putting much thought into.
At the end of Clara’s book, she says that ideally she would love for the house to be used as a Paranormal research facility. Well, it seems to be that dream is coming true! The house has a Facebook page where you can arrange to go to the house and investigate it yourself! They have tons of events going on all of the time. It was bought by CON-TACT Paranormal to save it from being demolished. They have been working on renovations and restoring it to it’s original element. Also, they’ve been hard at work on a highly anticipated documentary, “The Hinsdale Event”, which should be ready this winter!

…I was ONE month away from getting married. It’s sort of hard to believe now when you think about it.
Sometimes, I think about things that happened 5 years ago and they seem like yesterday. But, my wedding — just 11 months ago…feels like it happened ages ago!
This time last year I was counting down the days and the RSVPs coming in.
I see wedding things on different websites and I see wedding magazines when I’m out shopping and I kind of miss looking at all of that stuff!
Planning sure had it’s stressful moments, but it was SOOOO much fun looking at dresses! And shoes!
Here’s a picture of my dress and my shoes that I wore 11 months ago.

The Haunting Of… is an original series on the Bio. Channel. It features world-renowned psychic-medium Kim Russo as she gives an exclusive look at celebrities who have had their lives changed by paranormal events.
Each one-hour episode of The Haunting Of… features a celebrities’ real life encounter with the paranormal as they return to the site of their traumatic experience. Usually through the duration of the program, loved ones from the celeb’s life come through to chat.
I really enjoy watching this show, and it’s crazy how spot-on Kim is! Looking at the website right now, I see that my DVR may have missed recording a few episodes! (It is on television on Saturday nights at 10pm.)
Looks like you can watch them online though…..whew!

The past few days I’ve been battling this wicked cold/flu that’s been floating around. It is not fun. But, what is fun is watching movies.
Anyone else see any of these? My favorite out of them is “We Need to Talk About Kevin.” It’d been on my list to watch for awhile and I finally got around to seeing it. It’s really interesting and disturbing. Since it’s presented in a non-linear fashion it can get a little bit confusing at times. At the beginning I kept thinking, “What’s going on?” But, then you get used to the format and it’s much easier to follow.
Guess what? After more than 10 years, Raw Fear is finally BACK! The show will be hosted by a friend of mine, Shawn Kelly, from the Pittsburgh Paranormal Society. The first episode airs Saturday, April 13th at 11:00 pm on WPMY (My Pittsburgh TV).
