Welcome to the official start of summer: June
This month: Flag Day (14) Father's Day (17), First Day of Summer (21), St. John the Baptist Day (24)
This month, we explore the Don Cesar. On May 31, I had the opportunity to attend a Buddhist blessing of the hotel for its 90th anniversary. Included on this page is a brief history of the hotel, the ghosts, video interviews, and a recording of the blessing ceremony. Check it out; what do you think the blessing will do for the hotel and its spectral residents?
May 22: Brandy Stark was a guest on XForce radio. Hear the podcast here!
Patty and Friends has officially reopened as Market at Left Bank! Be sure to check it out!
Upcoming: Brandy Stark will be on an episode (Season 10, episode 13) of "Dead Files" found on the Travel Channel. She will be on as a local historian. The episode should air later this year.
ALSO: SPIRITS Rock theme: "Hi" and "Have a Spooktacular Day"! Find a rock, then please post it, keep it or rehide it but please post a picture (via hashtag if desired) to our FB page! Paranormal Pets at petliferadio.com. Paranormal Pets has two new episodes coming -- they aren't up just yet. Stay tuned! Our book, Shadows in the Sunshine, is available now! It combines the booklets from Patty and Friends (with new research, history, and ghostly happenings), the Suntan Art Center (ditto), and adds in one more haunted site. This little gem is up on Kindle, for sale through Amazon, and available in person for the Oct. 21 and Oct. 25 tours. I'll also have my copies at Necronomicon 2017. Check out Shadows in the Sunshine book and ebook editions!
Upcoming: September 28, 2018: International Day of Ghost Hunting. We are signed up to participate as the event is designed to benefit historic preservation. We are hopeful to raise money and awareness for Preserve the Burg but are currently looking for a place to investigate. The Sept. 28th event will be a ticket-purchase fundraiser with all money going to historic preservation. Ghost investigation is 10 p.m. to 12 a.m. More as we get this organized and scheduled!
Valentwe'en 2019: This will be held on Feb. 19, 2019, and co-insides with the full moon. Recap of Valentwe'en 2018!
