It read like a spy novel... very fun, and I found the book he used to help authenticate the cross -- the Chronicle of Jocelyn of Brakelond. Hadn't been checked out since 1929. SO cool. Read it -- hard to read.

Then looking for something else I found a book that listed immigration into US ship lists.... and found my 5th great grandfather....SO cool.... I love research.
When I went to college back in the day, I remember going to the stacks. I was in heaven! I loved the old dusty books.

I guess I am one of the few that would NOT want to be a paranormal investigator. I would be the unwilling chaser. I am at peace with my paranormal experiences, but I don't go looking for them.

I think being a paranormal investigator would be fun and exciting though it's probably not a way to make a living...and I wouldn't want to go to a haunted place alone. I have a digital voice recorder, an infrared thermometer, a ghost radar app on my iPhone though real paranormal investigators aren't likely to use such apps.

I'm sure it would be a very interesting hobby. I already have a spirit box that I bought from Amazon, didn't really find any kind of spirits using it. I thought that the ghost radar app on the iPhone was for entertainment purposes and isn't really for communicating with ghosts.

I have the Ghost Radar Connect app on my iPhone, added many words to its vocabulary, and when I was leaving from work and about to exit the building, the app said "Get the hell out of here" and the word "hell" was included. I thought it was funny. I also have a new K2 meter and it detected an energy change once, perhaps a ghost...

I've gone on a few "ghost hunts", but they were not very organized and it would be difficult to say if we found anything. I had a few experiences, but without being able to exchange ideas with anyone on how they could have been natural phenomena, what am I going to do? And I really don't have evidence, so for me it was mainly personal experiences. All I can do is relate things that happened and shrug if someone wants to make fun of it.
