After more than 5 million hits, 900 new signups for this newsletter, 600 new registrations for our supernatural community, Ghostvillage.com's fifth anniversary, and 57 trick-or-treaters at my door on October 31st, I'm ready to catch my breath from this past Halloween season. To our new Ghostvillagers, I say welcome! I hope you'll be involved year-round and not just during October, and to those who have been with us through the years, I say thanks, and wow -- you guys are the real cornerstones of our community.
November 1st I slept in -- it was great. But since then I've been hard at work on spirit communication. This subject is incredible, and the research I'm doing is exciting. Since humans could communicate, we've been yearning to speak with those who have passed on. Some, such as psychics and mediums, claim to have this ability on-demand. Others believe that through devices and focusing tools, they can get messages from the other side. Some of the results I've found have brought my inner skeptic to his knees. I'm not quite ready to say more, but I will keep you posted on my findings.
I will say that I've come to know that there's still magic left in the world. I used to not believe that. By the time I got into college and shortly thereafter, I figured the mysteries were all solved. I find it ironic that the older I'm getting, the more I'm believing in magic again.
So with a wave of my wand and a nod of my head, I bid you a happy November. Enjoy the rest of the newsletter below.

Who's Who in the Town Square?
>>MrGrey<< - member since September 4, 2004
What is your name?
How old are you?
I'm 24 years old.
Where do you live?
I live in the Rhondda Valleys in South Wales, United Kingdom -- surrounded by mountains.
What do you do for a living?
I work in a factory making satellite dishes -- very boring work.
Have you ever seen a ghost?
I've seen a few strange things in my time, and can never explain them, but the weirdest one happened a couple of months ago. I was just settling down for bed and starting to drift a bit when my mobile phone went off with a text message. I quickly sat up to answer it, and as I did I could see a silhouette of what looked like a man right by the side of me. It was there for a few seconds and then faded away. It completely freaked me out and I still have no explanation for it. Anyway, the night after, I was settling down again and starting to drift when the next thing I knew, I was lying in the bed and I could see that my PC monitor was on at the back of the room (I always knock it off when I go to bed), and I was aware of something by the side of me but it was invisible to me. The bed clothes were slowly being peeled off me, and all I can remember is absolute fear... I've never known fear like it before and I couldn't speak out or anything. The next thing I knew, I was awake in my bed in a sitting-up position. Needless to say, I had a few sleepless nights after that one.
What first got you interested in ghosts and the supernatural?
I've been interested in the paranormal for as long as I can remember. I don't know what got me into them, but I have always been fascinated by ghosts and spooky happenings. I think there's something about the unexplainable that just draws you to it.
What's the most haunted location you've ever visited?
Well, I've never actually been to an officially known haunted site, unfortunately, but my old grammar school halfway up in the mountains was known for a few hauntings. It was a very spooky place -- had been abandoned for years and then burned to the ground about 4 or 5 years ago. It's now rubble.
