Yeah, except it'd be Dr. Livingston's Spector Hour, or something like that! You could be my Ed McMann if you want, or do you want to be Doc?

Oh yeah, that would be cool! Is the 'godhead' Zardoz much for small chat?

The first was shortly after my mom died, and I heard her voice as plain as day wake me up one morning. It was so clear I actually answered before I woke up enough to remember that she couldn't be calling out my name.

The second was on a "ghost expedition" study I went as an open-minded skeptic, at an unused Hollywood movie theater . At the turn of the previous century it was a schoolhouse which burned down, later a projectionist died there while on duty, among other events in the location's history. A group of us spent several hours there one warm summer night trying to detect and measure any odd phenomenon.

Several experiences were reported -- people seeing shapes in the dark theater, tape recorders stopping without apparent cause -- but I found such things either too subjective or perhaps explainable by reasons aside from the supernatural.

Yet one very different experience was a cold spot we measured moving up one of the aisles between seat rows. We detected a volume of air about 3-feet tall slowly moving from the screen (front) to the back of the theater, measurable on digital thermometers. Stick your hand in the middle of the volume and it felt cold, yet move your hand above, below or to the side by mere inches and the air was room temp. As I said, this was a balmy summer night, no wind, no air conditioning in the building, and no open doors or windows. It was a physical, measurable phenomenon I still can't explain.

Later we all sat with our backs to the screen/stage in semi-darkness, watching the theater seats which reportedly would move on their own. These are the typical spring-loaded seats which fold up automatically unless you sit on it, and we made sure every seat was folded up first. After about 10 minutes a few of us took flashlinghts and walked row by row... sure enough we found seats folded down by themselves. We could not put these same seats up then have them stay down again by themselves... you still had to hold it down even after it had gone down on its own.

At the end of that seat watching session, suddenly it sounded like someone picked up an entire short row of seats on one side and dropped them on the floor. Flashlights quickly revealed nothing in the area which could cause it, and about 30 pairs of eyes were all facing the lobby doors, so we knew no one came in or could have run out so quickly by the time we lit the area.

I have no idea if these events where caused by ghosts, per se, but even as an "I need proof" skeptic, I could not explain what happened and was objectively verifiable by others. It was quite interesting and I'd certainly try more such expeditions again someday.
A bit weird If I may say my self
Have had some strange ones here in our home, useed to be my hubbies parents home. I have seen a man, a bit agree too .
Once in a while you smell flowers (possible his grandma) and while I was pregnant, Someone touched my feet gently. And I Saw a women laying next to me in bed one morning. My Husband's family says many weird things happened in this home, and not so nice either, been very luck cause everything I have felt has been peaceful.Other stuff has happen at my parents home but to many to write down. I still want to know tho, if it was my imagination or it happened

The only two people that I know have had ghost experiences, do not believe in ghosts.

More information forthcoming...
