    Blue Atmospherics (Anti-Crepuscular Rays)

    The night before last I popped out to the shops and saw a weird atmospheric condition that I'd never seen before: a deep blue stripe running from the horizon up into the sky. It was probably about 9pm so still light but just starting to turn to dusk, weather was excellent, hot, mostly clear...

    Emergency contact

    I've been sent the following by email. On the face of it, it could be a good idea. However, I don't know whether it is genuine or a chain letter. It fits the methodology of the latter: asking you to forward it to everyone in your addressbook and so on. I don't think it really comes from the...

    New (but pretty unfulfilling) ghost

    A new ghost sighting for you, just in time for halloween. Not a particularly exciting story mind you, and no spooky followups. Might not even have been a ghost. This is something which one or other of my grandparents (I think it was my grandfather) saw a while ago. They told my parents...

    It's late...

    ...and I really should stop reading ghosty things... I just noticed that it's gone midnight, that it's dark (the bulb blew), and suddenly feel very cold (heating has switched off, although the thermometer still reads 19C) and just have this overwhelming feeling someone is behind me. Bah...
