American Hauntings

Oak Alley Plantation Pictures, Images and Photos

I just love watching stuff about ghosts. Did anyone catch Taps last night on the Sci Fi channel? It was awesome! They were down in Louisiana investigating Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie. I wish I could have been there with them during filming. Do you remember the scene, in Interview with a Vampire, where Brad Pit’s character is talking about his days before becoming a vampire? Well during that scene there is a shot of him riding away from this humongous plantation home that he lives at. That’s Oak Alley plantation. I actually got a chance to visit it a few years back. That place is huge! They say that during one tour, a candlestick flew across the room in full view of 35 tourists! Unfortunately though, nothing out of the ordinary happened while I was there. It would have been so cool if it had. Anyway, they guys get called out by one of the people who run the place. They want to see if Taps can get real documented video footage on the ghosts that are said to inhabit the place. They said that staff and volunteers have witnessed all kinds of cool stuff. Everything from figures in windows, lights coming on and going off by themselves, and the sound of boots on the floor even though no one is there. There have even been instances where some of the tour guides swear that they have heard carriages coming up the drive that are accompanied by a cloud of dust moving towards the house but, there isn’t anything there to be causing it. Now I am a skeptic so my first thought was okay, how much of this is really true? I’ve watched a few of their shows where they go to investigate places only to find out that the strange things people are experiencing can be explained away by normal stuff like shutters or mirrors. They actually had some cool stuff happen to them though and caught it on video. There was one instance where they had a flashlight come on all by itself and when they went to investigate, it went off and they found that the light was very cold to the touch and the immediate area surrounding the light was cold as well. My favorite thing, that happened to them, was they caught someone looking at them through the window off the balcony. There was no one out there though! Another cool thing they caught, on audio, was the sound of the boots on the floor. They were all wearing either flip flops or tennis shoes! Awesome. If I had actually been there, I probably would have been scared out of my ever loving mind.lol

I can’t help but, wonder how many people have unexplainable things happen to them? You know in ordinary places like their apartment or house. It doesn’t just happen at old plantation homes and castles. I would be interested to hear about it. If it will make you more inclined to tell me, about it, I will tell you about something that happened to me just the other night. It freaked me out and I still can’t figure out if I've watched too many episodes of ghost hunter or if I’m just losing my mind. Probably a little of both but, I digress.lol Anyway, I was home by myself, late Tuesday night when one of our Halloween toys, in the living room, started going off all by itself! Now I know some of those things have sensors that get set off really easy but, this one is set so you have to literally push the button on this thing to make it work. It went off 6 or 7 times in a row and then stopped. It hasn’t gone off since. I was tempted to stick it in the closet on the patio it freaked me out so bad.lol In the end though I left it. I’m curious to see if it does it again anytime soon. So, as I mentioned before, I would love to hear if anyone else has had some strange stuff happen to them. Please tell me I’m not the only one.lol :o)

Mr. Mai Tai went on a haunted pub tour in St. Augustine. Didn't see any ghosts but got to hear some good stories and had a few drinks. Overall a good night.

Are you aware that the news you are watching is interlaced with Communist China's propaganda,as
Communist China maps a realm of news with innocent lives?
Communist China is scheming a millennial terrorist activity by manipulating people's behaviors
through electromagnetic waves to contain criticism and harm innocent human lives.

1. The anomaly in community traffic of cars and motorcycles and drag racing,and reckless honking by
cars and motorcycles is exceeding an unprecedented level.
2. Communist China has the technology to scan the human brain waves through military satellite and
to discern and decipher their thoughts,scheming to instill individual interference focusing on
each individual in need using the satellite electromagnetic waves.
3. Deploying electromagnetic waves is poised to project onto the human brain with certain
sounds for the perception of grossly traumatizing or startling pain,or deploying the broadcast
of noise via electromagnetic waves in sleeping humans with edited clips of films or through
voice or image signals onto our brains or besiege our sensory functions with fabricated
audible and sensory illusions.
4. It manipulates one's moods,such as smiling,nervousness,disgust,panic,anger,sorrow,
desires,appetite,and so forth.
5. It interferes the human brain's thinking capability,memory or linguistic capability,to name a
few,causing spasms of muscles and fingers in the left and right hands,stinging aches
throughout the body,coughing,yawning,trembling,involuntary blinking of the eye,runny
nose and so forth.
6. Electromagnetic waves are deployed to hinder the motoring functions of the body and neck,
disrupt the heartbeat or respiration,manipulate dizziness,deprive one's sleep,spasm,saliva
gland,dental neural pain,etc.
7. Watch out that Communist China is infiltrating the news media by deploying electromagnetic
waves to besiege the broadcast media,map out viral disillusion or erroneous perception,and
investigate threats of brainwashing in viral spreading.
8. It further moved to deploy various symptoms in what one sees of media icons,gesture terms,
adding a skewed interpretation to one's cognitive awareness,misleading an individual to
hallucinate or suffer,such as the North Korean's rigid smile,which is a tactic Communist
China often deploys to counter the people.
9. By observing the resolution accuracy of Communist China's sound and image (scenario)
interference projected onto the human's brain,this can only be achieved with a certain level
of frequencies at the source of interference,hence there is no doubt that it has to be the
electromagnetic wave. Yet questions remain as to what range of frequencies the source of
interference deploys,or what kind of electromagnetic waves insulation chamber would suffice
to provide an insulation yield? Communist China might deploy specific metal alloys as small scale
molecular antennas, which are attached to the human brain in large number,creating
electromagnetic waves when the human brain is in function,where the current created by
Communist China's electromagnetic interference would poise to amplify in a staggering
number of multiplication,which Communist China can detect at all times to discern and
muscles would excel the generation of electrode,which in turn create a corresponding
electromagnetic wave within.
10. Some of Communist China's intimidation experiences in 2002:6.9 "Hey,are you tired of living?"
6.14 "We had concocted the bombing incident at the U.S. embassy in Pakistan"
"Jiang Zhemin ordered us to kill you,but without creating scenes"6.16 "The Pakistani
civilian troops confessed that they had schemed the bombing of the U.S. embassy in
Pakistan,which we had manipulated them to confess,so what are you going to do about it?"
6.19 "Hey,why don't you just go ahead and commit suicide""We are going to scheme
murder using the public bus"6.20 "Commit suicide by burning charcoal,get it?"6.25 "Jiang
Zhemin just does not like you,go hit your head against the wall".
11. I reckon that there are victims abound out in the street,no less alarming than wars,and those
not in the know or did not understand that Communist China's simple electromagnetic design
could easily turn people against each other,create moving incidents,little lese to say mislead
the youth to broach down the wrong path,suicidal prompting,design and fabrication of a host
of society news (which Communication China refers to as movie making),as Communist China has had a
decade long of the technology,and has long abused its technological advantages to scheme up design
of abusing human lives by arranging fabricated news to poison and infiltrate the free
world,manipulate and misguide the contents of the media,and deploy brainwashing and malicious
spread of viruses,done with insinuation and riddles.The fact that Communist China's slaughtering
the innocent had been the result of a high level of calculation,and a high level of rationalization,
where the threats are in existence,and cannot be ignored of their detrimental severity.
12. Communist China often coerce people to watch news compiled by the reporter Lu Yuling of the cable
news in order for them to be saved,but few are aware that Communist China had merely deploy the
reporter to entrap many people. I do envision that those that turn to committing crime as framed
by Communist China,the extra sufferings by the ordinary people,and the deaths of many innocent
lives will not go unnoticed as hindered by a condoning attitude.
13. Nazi Hu Jintao, Jiang Zemin, Chinese Liberation Army, security police and armed police have committed suppression and massacre on their own civilians. Hu, Jiang and the other atrocious butchers owe these innocent civilians! More horrible and serious is that they are using mysterious killing technologies to cause harms to human brains around the world, making advantage of numerous international politicians and journalists to help them commit atrocities and beautify their actions, aiming to overturn and suppress those innocent people and cover up their terrorist acts and win fame by cheating the world. Securing in the knowledge that they have strong backing, these arrogant and shameless butchers have committed tortures and mass killing cruelly to those innocent ones around the world. Unfortunately, neither these politicians and nor journalists knowing what is what would dare to express their conscience.
14. The inhumane acts and atrocities committed by Nazi China are far more vicious than that of Nanjing massacre in China during WWII committed by Japanese army, as Chinese government is using mysterious technologies to commit massacres to masses of bare-handed civilians around the world as well as launch violence and terrorist activities to suppress these completely unarmed people’s freedom of speech. These demons, like Hu, Jinag and Chinese Liberation Army, despise the chastity, dignity and precious life of those innocent ones and suppress the emotions of their beloved. Meanwhile, relying on the condition that most of people in the world will not be able to witness their vicious acts of violence and behaviors they have committed unscrupulously and shamelessly, these Chinese Liberation Army enjoys using cruel ways to torture, massacre and trample on these innocent people, physically and mentally, in one free world. The arrogant Hu, Jiang and those jackals nurtured under such ferocious power treat themselves as the symbol of benevolence and hero, as they fail to learn their gutless and vicious acts to trample on those innocent people. If these demons, butchers and dregs of human, such as Hu, Jiang and Chinese Liberation Army who have become frenzied and conscienceless appeared in the site of Nanjing massacre in WWII, they definitely would be the leading roles to act atrocities!
15. We don’t want to see masses of innocent people to fall victim to the hell on earth built by red China where they will be susceptible to tortures and massacres for thousands of years.
16. Despite being even unable to fend for themselves in face of the high-tech detriments and attacks from China, we can not tolerate the fact that these politicians and journalists will become the accomplices to help China commit its terrorist acts and suppression on these innocent people in the current era or an unknown future.
17. In view of the notorious, vicious and sinister Hu, Jiang, Chinese Liberation Army with blood-stained hands, we just cast doubt over whether these greats of knowing what is what who have negotiated with these demons will show their conscience to save these innocent civilians or will act just for the sake of their profits, or are under the control of China. In this current drowned world, how will these innocent lives be treated in face of the atrocious acts committed by these diabolical figures, or when these innocent people will witness the practice of democracy in China? Will these phenomena turn out to be the joint efforts and endeavors achieved by China and those powerful figures in the world? Are we really dedicated to overturning such adversity? Our goal is to eliminate the vicious power one day with our strenuous efforts, and we absolutely will achieve it!

Well apparently you have a Chinese computer poltergeist...Bummer.

I've only experienced small strange things like sounds & lights at odd times. We have some ghost hunter types in our town; I should call them out sometime.

I know right? What the heck is that? Should I delete it? Is this my first spam?lol God it goes on forever. I read the first few lines and then it all just started blurrying together and putting me to sleep.lol

As for your experiences, they sound pretty cool. It would be interesting to see what the ghost hunters had to say about it.

OrangeMoJoJo said...

That communist china spam is the scariest thing I've seen in a while. I've deleted my spams, but congrats on your first!

They remodeled two of the most haunted spots in Chicago (That Steak Joynt and The Red Lion Pub). The numerous hauntings at That Steak Joynt (nothing too scary, just tappings on the shoulder, cold spots) have ceased; and I'm suspecting the hauntings at Red Lion will have ceased as well once they reopen in November.

I had a ghost cat jump on my bed at a B&B in Cornwall! It jumped up, walked up to a spot behind my knees and plopped down. I reached to pet it and there was nothing there. That was actually really way more cool than freaky - I do love cats!

Sarcasm is just one more service I offer. said...

A ghost cat? That's cool. What did you do when you realized there wasn't anything there? Did they tell you ahead of time that you might get a visit? :o)

OrangeMoJoJo said...

I just kinda looked over not really believing there was nothing there, then went to sleep. If it was a ghost ferret, I woulda been freaked out, but a cat? Not so much. We hadn't been warned about any feline phantasms upon check in. The owner of the house we stayed in - a very weathered little old lady - barely spoke two words to us, and those words weren't "ghost cat." I think they were "16 pounds. Each." Okay, three words.

Sarcasm is just one more service I offer. said...

Haha a ghost ferret...yeah that would have been something alright. I have 2 and I only made the mistake of falling asleep with them loose once. I woke up to them tunneling under the covers and digging and biting on my feet.lol It definately freaked me out.lol :o)

Hey! Nice blog. Nice post-thanks. It was a good episode-you should check out the one from St. Augustine Lighthouse that they did a while back-very good evidence.

Check out if you have not seen yet.

Hey thanks. Glad you like it. I remember watching that episode. The evidence they got was amazing. The show last night was pretty cool too. What did you think of the first house they visited? I wonder what is really happening with the little boy? I'm not sure how comfortable I would be living somewhere that has cabinet doors and bathroom doors opening and closing all the time.lol The evidence they got at the 2nd place was really neat too. I am still wondering how those 2 guys didn't hear that voice but, the other 2 did clear as day and caught it on tape. Interesting stuff for sure. :o)

Aura said...

I found the first house creepy. Not sure what is going on-I think more investigating is necessary. I would be concerned having such a small child there and he being so terrified. The second place was interesting. The EVP was so clear. Do you remember the movie The Others? I think that is what is going on there-the deceased does not know he has passed.

Sarcasm is just one more service I offer. said...

That movie was great. I need to watch it again. It's been awhile. I wonder if something like that is going on there? Poor guy, just roaming around wondering what the heck is going on.

I have been to the St. Augustine Lighhouse and I didn't see any ghosts. I did get a wicked cramp in my legs walking up all the stairs though. Unless that was a ghost manifesting itself by knotting up my calf muscles.

Sarcasm is just one more service I offer. said...

Haha I bet you did get wicked leg cramps after walking up all those stairs. Isn't it just the biggest disappointment to visit a place like that and have nothing happen? Wow,...and they have great evidence from there as well. Sorry, it was uneventful for you. :o/
