I'm happy for the new owners of the house. I'm also happy for the house. A house lacks life and vitality unless it's inhabited. It's only then that it comes to life, takes on a personality and smiles. Okay, maybe I have the tendency to see life in inanimate objects. Or perhaps I've read Virginia Lee Burton's children's book "The Little House" one time too many.

Just mentioned in the paper today that a home where a notorious Boston-area double murder took place some months back is now on the market for $500K+. Somebody will buy it.


Somebody probably moved into the Borden house within a couple of years, too.


Yeah I don't know if there has ever been a case of a house remaining empty because something bad happened there. Superstition is powerful but not as powerful as the profit motive.


There are also people who like those kind of houses... who like the fact that they get the story to go along with the house. I am guessing the Ramsey house will sell soon and most likely to someone with morbid curiosity.

If I moved into a house like that, I think I'd have to get some Balinese temple bells and some smuding going, maybe even some holy water before moving in. I've seen too many scary movies.

If you look up morbid curiosity in the dictionary, my photo is there.

And I *still* wouldn't buy one of those houses.

Nuh-uh. No way.

I see another plug from Sir James (on the subject of W's roving hands).
Surely your cup runneth over?!

The trick to living in a "haunted house" is just living in it, without letting it come alive inside your head. If that takes a little "smudging", well, RAmen.

BG, you crack me up! (and I like it! :)


Oops, yes, that was supposed to be "smudging", not "smuding", although smuding might work too, whatever it might be...

I was wondering what smuding was. I thought maybe it was from the movie "The Omen."

Just smud Damian already!

And MB: The trick to living in a "haunted house" is just living in it, without letting it come alive inside your head.

Um. Ok. You've convinced me. Next haunted house on the market is mine. All mine. Mwaaah-ha-ha-ha!

I would be hard pressed to conjure up shivers in a house whose owners weren't even in the same state when they died.

On the other hand, it's possible that the ghost of Moose summers at the Mill Pond house.


If "Lost" weren't creepy enough already, you should know that the cave set was built inside the former Xerox building out here. Xerox moved out because a former employee went on a rampage and killed seven people there a few years back.
