s you walk along the dimly lit hallway you can hear the wind howling on the outside, adding to the drama you feel on the inside. Casting a somewhat orangey glow, the small bulb on the ceiling barely lights your way. Slowly you take each step, looking further down towards the other end of the long corridor, looking side to side at each closed and sealed door. Then you see it at the other end... what was that? A fleeting shadow? Your imagination maybe... or....

...was it really the ghost of your great grandmother's uncle who married his first cousin? The question here is... do you believe in ghost and spirits? People who have moved on to wherever they move onto when they die?

There are two shows that I watch on TV... one is on the Travel Channel, Most Haunted with Derek Acorah. At the very least he is somewhat entertaining, and sometimes almost believable, though a bit over-dramatic, but he always finds spirits and ghosts all over the place.

On the other hand is the SciFi channels offering of Ghost Hunters. This show is basically about 2 guys who are plumbers by day and ghost hunters by night. They go around and try and debunk ghost stories, etc.

For the record, I do believe in ghost and spirits. Ever since a kid and my first nightmare, I honestly believe they walk among us... for good or evil, whatever.

Anyway the whole purpose of my blog today is to look at these two groups that I mentioned before. Awhile back the Ghost Hunters show goes to the Queen Mary berthed in California, which is reportedly a seriously haunted ship. These guys and crew bring all of their equipment, set it all up and stay there for dunno 12 hours maybe. They find nothing! Zip! Zilch! Nada! Zero! Out of the 10 or 15 ghost that supposedly reside on the ship and having been experienced by dozens, if not hundreds of guests, these guys from Ghost Hunters find nothing. Okay, that's scene one.

About a month later, I'm flipping around the channels when I come across Derek Acorah on the Travel Channel and guess where he's headed? The Queen Mary to hunt for ghost. And guess what? He finds ghost all over the place! They're coming out of the woodwork... AND he talks to them as well!!

Let's recap: Same place. Ghost Hunters, no ghost. Derek Acorah, ghost abound. Now somebody's got to be right and somebody's got to be wrong here.

Observations and Questions
What do you think? Do you believe in ghost? Have you ever seen one? I actually know a woman back in Philly that claims she actually made love to a ghost one night. Talk about imagination running amuck.
