I was thinking about the history of France and a remark recently made to me by a young woman who told me that France has more ghosts per inch than any other nation at present. This is perhaps true in many respects, especially if one investigates what lies beneath the streets of French cities. France does have its abundance of ghosts. One would find much food for thought in reading the chapter, “The Catacombs Museum” by Jeff Belanger in his book, The World’s Most Haunted Places (New Page Books, 2004).
Other ghostly matters come to mind. I recently came into possession of a double disc set about ghosts, released on September 11, 2007. This special two-disc set is called “Ghosts Among Us.” It is inexpensive and can be found at various DVD outlets. This is a nice compact visit to many of the most haunted places in the world. One cannot help but be amazed and surprised watching the section on the tour through Hollywood and its many ghosts and strange fatalities. An eerie visit to the Biltmore and Roosevelt hotels is also covered. Another section, among many others covered, is a look at the American Wild West, and its cowboys and American Indians. If you watch this intriguing collection, you may find it highly enjoyable, and scary! It is published by Crystal Entertainment and runs approximately 180 minutes in length.
Ah, at last, as September gives way to October, the weather is becoming somewhat cooler. That is good. Weather forecasters have forecast the coming year of 2008 as being one of the warmest in the past 1,000 years. So, best to savor this fall season of 2007 with gusto!
Readers, I personally thank you for the mail, and please keep it coming. I learn from your sharing of thoughts. Have an enjoyable, ghostly October 2007.
