A good shot is just what they need.

Enough said before I get a warning.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

If ya'll are leaving, don't forget to pick up after yourselves, cause Freetoroam and I are officially squatting in our wonderful haunted nunnery. :tu:

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

I would love to have that house!  My daughter likes it, too.  If you google it under images, there are a few more that show some of the woodwork in it- and one relaly creepy staircase

Save the Earth! It's the only planet with chocolate!

I would take a free home and live there.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

The Wymering Manor has failed to sell. No one wanted to buy the house from the council, because it's believed to be haunted by nuns. There is 24/7 security on the house because it's seems to be a popular attraction to ghost hunters, and the paranormal believers. Security is always in pairs as the security guards refused to work by them selves.


Sorry to be a stick-in-the-mud, but the rumour about the security guards getting the chills isn't exactly true. I was writing about the place myself and I contacted the Manor and asked them! It might have started with a Daily Mail article (IIRC) that mentioned the guards refused to work after dark.

I almost bought the "dolphin house" in Ho Chi Minh City many years ago.  It was a wonderful old hotel/office building adorned on top by four huge dolphins that had sat empty for many years and was a foreclosure, so of course it was also haunted.  The price was really cheap, but I thought the neighborhood was on the way down and you can't make anything in that kind of neighborhood.

The ultimate buyer was another bank, and they moved themselves in and removed the dolphins, which seemed to get rid of the ghosts too.  They did well for themselves.

I'd buy it, and then rent it out to thrill-seekers who want to spend the night there.

Funnily enough I watched Most Haunted (Almost) Live last night on DVD - and the team was at Wymering Manor.  They got the usual bangings, tappings, creepy groans and moans, disembodied sighs, unexplained footsteps coming from the floor above (but they didn't dare go up there to check it out) and creepy laughter.  Richard Felix got his cross pendant pulled off his neck by a ghostly monk.  When it was originally broadcast live as Most Haunted Live it was several episodes, one a night for a few nights, and in each episode the team visited a haunted place in Portsmouth.  For the DVD they just took the best and scariest bits from each night and put them together for a two-and-a-half hour long Most Haunted "Almost" Live episode.
