Let’s talk about Subway today. Not just any Subway but the Subway located in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. This building that is now the Subway used to be a Harley Davidson shop owned by Mr and Mrs Forbes. Back on the night of April 13, 1984, the couple went out driving when a car load of young men driving too fast, over 100 mph, crashed into the Forbes car killing everyone involved.
Today, Mrs. Forbes haunts the Subway building. She is know to throw items off shelves, she sets off beepers on the doors, cuts sandwiches and calls out employee names. She is even know to appear at the cash register with a stern look on her face. And when she appears, she has a foul odor.
Would you like to meet for lunch here?

Oh my friends. Let’s do a twist today. Let’s see if you can scare me for a change. Mom/dad were sitting the living room last night with us anipals. The room was dark except for the flames of the fireplace. They were talking about movies they have seen over the years that scared them silly. Conversation went back and forth until they settled on two.
Dad’s Movie Pick – 1408. This movie came out in 2007 and started John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. You see John Cusack’s character was a so called ‘ghost hunter’. He went to famous places and would spend the night in haunted rooms. Most of the time, nothing happened and the places were debunked. But then while writing his latest book, he travels to New York to stay at the Dolphin Hotel in room 1408, a haunted room. In fact, it was so haunted that the hotel would not rent the room to anyone. Through lawyers, he finds out that if the room is vacant, the hotel has to rent it so he makes a reservation to stay. He checks in and meets with the hotel manager, played by Samuel L. Jackson. Jackson tries everything he can to persuade Cusack’s character not to stay in the room – a room upgrade, expensive booze and even will allow Cusack to look at a book he has made showing over 50 deaths in room 1408. But in the end, Cusack stays in 1408. Let’s just say that 1408 is everything you can imagine it to be.
Mom’s Movie Pick – House on Haunted Hill. This movie came out in 1999. Mom/dad will usually go to the movies to see comedy’s but for some reason, they saw this movie in the theater. Don’t ask me why because it’s not like them. Mom actually watched part of the movies with her hands covering her eyes. At one time, she even told daddy that she might have to leave – that’s how scared she was. The entire movie is about a millionaire who offers a diverse group of people $1,000,000 to spend the night in a haunted house with a horrifying past. “nuff said before I make water from being scared.
So my question to you my friends, what is the one movie that you saw that scared your pants off?

Today we are focusing on a spook in Chicago ion an area where my Aunt Tina lives. Buckle in for some bumps and scares. Enjoy – don’t be scared now – BOO!
Givens Castle / Beverly Unitarian Church
The Givens Castle was originally built in 1886 as a residence by Robert Givens. Givens was real estate developer and wanted the house to be a replica of a castle in his native Ireland. Some say that Givens built the home for his fiancee who died before the house could be finished. Maybe that accounts for why Givens only lived in the castle for 8 years.
Around 1894, the castle turned into the Chicago Female College. It is reputed to have had a student die in the 1930’s from flu.
During the 1960’s, the castle was turned into the Beverly Unitarian Church. A janitor once reported that he had a conversation with a woman who disappeared from sight. Their conversation was about the house and how much it had changed over the years. The janitor saw no footprints outside in the snow and all of the doors were locked. Where did she go? Was it the student that passed away from the flu?
The pastor of the church at the time was a woman who claimed she saw a pair of hands touch her husband’s waist. Even more, the pastor thought the hands were those of a woman. The husband never felt a thing. During this time as well, there were reports of a candle being seen through windows when nobody was present in the building.
Unexplained noises have also been attributed to the ghost and a former pastor said that he often tried to track down the source of the noises but was never able to.
