Even though it was late September, St. Ives was bursting with color. Today it's 30 degrees in Cincinnati. All the flowers are dead. Sigh. This slideshow should help.
Pluckley, in southeast England, was named in the 1989 Guinness Book of Records for being the "most haunted village in Britain," with 12 different ghosts lurking around the town.
There was the screaming man who worked at the village brickworks and fell to his death; the highwayman who had a sword stuck in him and then ran through town and ended up pinned to a tree at Fright Corner, where a shadowy figure now appears; and the schoolmaster who was hung by children.
Report has it that all these people are still hanging around.
Then there was the old woman who burnt to death when, saturated in the gin she was drinking, accidentally set herself on fire with the pipe she was smoking on the lonely spot where she was selling watercress.
There was bad luck on so many levels for this poor woman.
There's a man in military uniform who stands on the stairs that lead up from what is now a bar. I'm not sure if he does anything more frightful than just stand there. And then there's the farmer who shot himself just after uttering the words "I will do it" to his wife. Supposedly, those words can be heard today as a whisper all around the farm.
Jeez. A lot of bad things happen here. I'd turn back if I were you.
