Have you ever watched Haunted Collector on t.v.? He takes items that have spirit attachments from people's homes and stores them under glass cases. Apparently, there is something about glass containers that traps a spirit. I don't know how it works, but this is what the pros use.
Photons can get through glass, but a spirit that can get through solid objects cannot? This makes no sense at all, considering everything people claim they have penetrated, from cloth to stone to metal (vehicles included)
I have a couple of odd things that have been happening since we bought this house about 6 years ago. The first has been an off and on occurrence. We have all seen this, my wife,son, daughter and myself. This past summer I came in through the front door,walked into the kitchen and out of the corner of my eye, down the hallway, saw what I thought was my wife walk from our bedroom, across the hall, to the bathroom. Thinking it was her, I started talking to her about something. Getting no answer, I went to the bathroom to see why she wasn't answering. No one there. I went looking for her and she had been out on the back porch reading. I had been working out front on the roses and she had been out back for at least 20 minutes. This has happened several times to different members of the family. I'll post the other if any are interested.
Forgot to mention, we were the only ones home at the time, kids were gone.
Ok. Like I said, this is a bit creepy. This doesn't happen often, maybe once a month. Sometimes when I'm asleep, I wake up cause I feel something walking across the foot of the bed. Not like a person, but, you know when a cat is not sure of it's footing, how they will carefully, step by step go across something? Like that. Very light, very slow. I usually fall asleep with the TV on and there is enough light to see that nothing is there. I never sit up suddenly, just open my eyes enough to see and watch. We have cats, but I have felt these foot steps going across the bed while being able to plainly see there's no cat in the room.. I saw a docu a while back of some woman having a similar problem and actually caught hers on video. A nasty, creepy looking little creature, about the size of a small monkey. But, so far,I haven't seen anything.
Ed and Lorraine Warren are known fraudsters. They tend to embellish and make crap up.

In the 1990s my sister swore that a doll she had, one of those talking ones, would constantly swear, would talk and swear at many odd moments during the day and night without being touched, so much so that she had to put it under things in her laundry room, and she eventually ended up putting it in a garbage bag (it was swearing the whole way) and handing it to the garbage collectors personally. She had said she'd send it to me, as I was interested in having this odd doll, but when I eventually talked to her by phone she said she'd gotten rid of it (I wasn't happy, darn).

That is quite the creepy doll, love it. However, I wouldn't want to own a haunted doll. Looking at pictures and reading stories of the dolls history, that I can handle, lol.
I love old antique dolls, we have a little oddities cabinet, I've ben trying to add a creepy doll or creepy doll head. My husband says no Still working on him, lol.

not withstanding the minor point that a alledged " demon " who cannot escape a glass cabinet is not really that scary

Kinda makes one curious where exactly they got that belief from...
Perhaps they once had an experience like this:
Some friends of ours were ministers who went to Haiti. One time they brought us some carved figurines as a gift. These statutes caused us strife in the family. Our daughter, Marie, felt like there were eyes watching her as she walked across the room. The Lord finally got our attention and we destroyed the wood figures. The wood would not burn normally and finally I had to soak them in charcoal-lighter fluid. When they finally burned, a green flame came out and shot toward us. These dolls were probably made by Voodoo worshipers who blessed them so that they would be sold. After getting rid of the statutes, the strife left our family. What do you think the green flame was - a demon?
I got so I would record the taps programs, watch the beginning where the owner tells what is going on and then fast forward to the reveal which was little to nothing. I eventually stopped recording them altogether. I
…how does one tell if they are dealing with ghosts or aliens?

What does everyone think of these so called professional ghost groups that charge, in some cases a lot, to investigate your home or business? Her name is Lorraine Warren, incidentally, and I heard she charges $1,000 to investigate a home or business. I ran into a group in the Fort Worth/Dallas, Texas area that put in the site their reason for charging is because free groups have less experience and less equipment. That was one of their reasons for charging. What do others think about this?
Thanks and cheers

My latest interest has been The Dead Files, I don't know if they are being totally upfront about everything because the owners will say this happened, that happened, saw this, saw that yet when Amy Allan does her walk you never hear or see anything, not even a tap on a wall. I think Amy does have some kind of ability but I am confused on many things about that show.
