International Ghost Hunters Society Newsletter
Dr. Dave’s Notes:
Last weeks Newsletter had a bad hot link to the Ghost Charm Jewelry page. The error was my fault, but I have corrected it now. I have also corrected the address on photo icon for the jewelry on the home page. Many of our fans and visitors have written to us about the bad link, and we thank them for their diligence. Halloween is just around the corner, a beautiful ghost charm necklace would be the perfect treat for someone you love, or for yourself. Take pride in your hobby as a ghost hunter, wear your ghost charm necklace and you will be amazed at the conversations that start up over the ghost charm.
Also, check out the Yak Tail Skull Bone ghost charm jewelry, the Yak Tail Skulls are hand carved and difficult to find anywhere. Just because little old Tibetan monks didn't carry the Yak Tail Skull Bone beads over the Big Hump does not diminish the rarity of these beads. We have only found them in one place during all the years of our travels.
We are currently investigating the experimental utopian agrarian village known as Standish Colony, near Susanville, CA. This 1897 town elected to follow the Colonial Plan as created by Miles Standish at the Plymouth Colony back in the late 1600s. This utopian society like so many others societies failed to survive the test of time. We remember our visit to the
The Standish Hall is probably the oldest standing wooden hall in the
The Standish Hall is haunted, of that we have no doubts. We have talked to people living here who swear they have seen the curtains in the upper windows move by themselves. Some reported that they feel watched in the building, while others claim they feel nothing when in the building. A few years ago,
Our sudden departure from
We are in a cycle of hurricanes now, similar to the storms that occurred in 1995. Some may believe in the Super Storms and climatic reversals, but the one thing we have learned from our research into the history of places is that everything follows a cycle. While living at the Crooked River Ranch, we found that one hundred years ago the desert terrain of today were then green pastures and flowing streams. The climate changed and the green grassy land changed to desert sagebrush when the streams dried up. These storms come and go in their natural cycles, and just because we do not remember those cycles does not mean that they are new and more forceful. We will always have doomsday prophets crying about Super Storms and Climatic Reversals, but then again, these same doomsday prophets said Y2K would bring economic ruins to our world and that didn't happen, nor have the prophecies of Haley's comet heralding in destruction and mayhem come to past. It seems to me the only benefit to these doomsday prophets were their books sales to the public. By the way, why did they write books to sell if the world were coming to an end?
Our Life Time Membership and Clip ID Badge is an excellent bargain over purchasing a yearly IGHS Membership Certificate and yearly Clip ID Badge. We have been going strong for nine years and we will be going strong for the next nine years, so why not save some bucks and sign up for the Life Time Membership. Some ghost organizations charge over $500 for a life time membership, we offer our Life Time Memberships at the same price as when we first offered them many years ago. Check out the good deal at http://www.ghostweb.com/memcert.html.
We invite our readers to share their stories and experiences on the Gettysburg Battlefield. If we use your story, it will appear in our America’s Hauntings: Volume 5: Ghosts of Gettysburg book. You can send them to us via email. We would also like to include photos and EVP for the book. Sorry, no dust orbs, but ectoplasmic vapor and orbs in motion are acceptable.
We are looking for stories and photos from such haunted sites as Slaughters Pen, Triangular Field, Valley of Death, Devils Den, Little Round Top, Wheatfield, Rose Woods, Reynolds Woods, Iverson’s Pits, Pardee Field, Culp Hill, Spangler’s Springs, Peach Orchard, Sachs Bridge, East Calvary Field, Village of Gettysburg, Cashtown Inn, Lighteners Farm, Confederate Avenue, Seminary Ridge, Cemetery Ridge, and the Pickett Charge field. Release Forms for the stories and photos/EVP are required by our publisher.
The author will be credited with his story, photos, and EVPs, however, we will do the editing of those stories. We did a similar thing with Brad Steiger. We shared one of our ghost stories and photo with Brad Steiger in his recent book, Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, Haunted Places. Our story appears in his book with our names as its authors. This is your opportunity to have your story published about your experience on the haunted Gettysburg Battlefield.
Every event, party, or get together can be memorable. At Halloween, the food table is a big draw, especially when you have prepared some classic, ghoulish recipes that are unique and different. Along with that special food, the drinks are important. There are all kinds of special recipes available right now that are easy to prepare and good to drink. One that I especially like we will call, Boo Brew. It not only tastes special, it looks good in the punch bowl on your table.
2 cups Apple Cider
2 cups vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt
2 Tbsp. Honey
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
In a blender, process all ingredients until smooth. Serve this individually immediately after making. To serve punch-bowl style, add 2 one liter bottles of club soda or ginger ale, chilled. To add color to your punch, add a few drops of food coloring, until you get the color you want.

Fulfill your dreams: Magic Dimensions
We all have dreams that we wished that could be our reality, but we do not know how to make that wish come true for us. In our book, we teach about the magic of having your dreams fulfilled. We show the reader how to open a doorway for a new reality where your dream will come true. Many claim this process is a miracle, but Quantum Mechanics teaches us that our miracles are simply an application of this weird science. Magic Dimensions may be one of the most important books that will change your life. The ISBN number is 0-595-22032-0 and can be ordered from any bookstore or online at major dot.com bookstores.
