News: Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson are Roto-Rooter plumbers that have hit the big time in the paranormal world by investigating ghostly accounts. The Sci Fi channel is reporting all time record ratings with Hawes and Wilson’s show “Ghost Hunters,” which airs on Wednesday nights and has for the last four years.

Hawes and Wilson have been investigating spectral nuances for over ten years when Hawes and Wilson founded The Atlantic Paranormal Society, better known as TAPS. The group has investigated everywhere from private homes to retired US naval ships. They use the scientific method to collect data, examine and debunk experiences as much as possible. But there are other times when no earthly explanation can be given and this leaves one to wonder what else it could be? Could it actually be a visage from the other side of the veil?

Nobody asked me, but…

The principals from a very successful TV show “Ghost Hunters”, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, are going to visit Taunton, MA, the home of the newly formed paranormal society “The Bayside Paranormal Center”.

It is impossible for me to predict what, if anything, the “Ghost Hunters” will find. In all probability, they will find little or nothing. This is not to suggest that there is no paranormal activity going on in Taunton, but I feel strongly that the use of electronic devices will not provide any significant proof. In the four years of successful TV, the “Ghost Hunters” have found little to confirm or deny the existence of ghosts.

In my opinion, they are searching in a way that cannot succeed.

“If”, as I have tried to explain numerous times, ghosts, UFOs and other paranormal phenomena emanate from a different dimension, there are no devices or electronic equipment we know of that can measure their activities or their presence to any significant degree except at very specific moments.

People have called my blogs “analytical”. “realistic” and sometimes plain “crazy”. But, I have seen a ghost…or at least something that defies any other rational explanation. In my first blog I told of what happened in San Francisco when I, unwittingly, occupied an apartment where a girl had been murdered. The “ghost” or “apparition” I saw was meaningless to me until, several weeks later, I saw her photograph and she was identified to me as having been murdered in that apartment. Please read or re-read my first blog for details.

Did I communicate with that ghost or apparition? No.

Did it dissolve or take some ghostly form? No.

One moment it was there and the next it was gone.

Could it have been my imagination? Absolutely. Until, several weeks later I saw her photo and identified her as the person I had seen in my room. It was then…and only then…that I began to realize what I had seen.

An important fact that I don’t want to skip-over is that she was “there one moment and gone the next”. What conceivable thing(s) do we know of on Earth that can do that? The answer is a clear “nothing”. Thus, in my search for answers, I began to think about different “dimensions” that we cannot sense with any of our five senses. As far-out as this may seem, it began to provide reasonable and logical explanations and answers to a lot of paranormal happenings and mysteries I had read about and encountered as an individual. Who among us had not had a déjà vu experience? Logically, and within our limited perception of our five senses, this cannot happen. But expand your thinking to allow for a sixth sense...or different dimension...and most déjà vu experiences can make good sense.

The appearance of a ghost, in living form, can only occur when circumstances are right…and we, apparently, have no control over those circumstances. It’s like the appearance and disappearance of UFOs. When conditions are right, lots of people see them…but we can never control when or where that time may be. How is it that your phone can ring and you know, before answering it, that it’s someone you haven’t seen for a long time?

And that’s the problem with “Ghost Hunters”. If the time is right, they may be able to see and measure fantastic changes as something from another dimension enters our dimension. But they cannot control when or where that time may be. Ghost hunting can be a very frustrating experience.

Notwithstanding that, they have an interesting show and it would be worth your time to watch an episode or two.

As I said…nobody asked me.

Forgot to tell you. When Shahin and I saw that house on Roscomare, we both felt "creeped out". We knew the owner had died and that was the reason for the house being on the market. When we asked the broker if the owner had died in the house, she claimed she didn't know. I would bet bottom dollar that the owner died in the house. The strange feeling we both got, I believe, explains that one, the house has tons of history in it's walls, and two, there's some foreign energy roaming the halls.
