Cats, cats, cats! Last month began the Year of the Dog, so this month I'm offering the other side of the spectrum - something for cat lovers! Cats symbolically carry the notion of supposedly having "nine lives". This old belief probably originated because cats are extremely agile, flexible, and react quickly as they stalk prey from high places, and when they fall they often land on their feet.

Are you a ghost hunter or paranormal investigator? Some people may not even realize there is a difference, but there is. This month I have decided to write my article on this because recently my favorite investigator of all time, Grant Wilson, did a video on it and it inspired me; plus I did a public event that made me think more about it. People identify with the term Ghost Hunter more than they do Paranormal Investigator it seems, which is fine and I am sure the show Ghost Hunters plays a big part in that.
