Yes I must say, it is a pretty spectacular place to work! Seems it was worth not finding a job for the past year. Driving up the long drive you have the mansion in front of you, framed by trees. It's really beautiful.

I swear you're like 121 year old Jack Crabb.
Man, you've done everything. You should change your handle to Little Big Woman
Dang, even down to the American Indian ancestry... amazing. Fascinating life.

Why do I hear DA's piano in the background and see a yellow Lab coming down the stairs?
Truly amazing place. I can't imagine.

I have no doubt you would pass security Addie! Just don't bring a gun with you!

Oh come now Pac - it's nothing like Highclere Castle!!

Actually, they wanted to make an episode of "Most Haunted" because of all the alleged ghosts, but the Home Office declined because of security issues.

I suppose it is wrong to say it tonight of all nights, but I don't believe in ghosts!

I don't believe in ghosts either, but I do believe in unexplained incidents.
And everyone needs a scapegoat, lol.

Stephen King summed up my beliefs about ghosts when he said ...Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.

I believe!

well my house came with a ghost. For real. Friendly, sometimes sits on the edge of my bed in the middle of the night. You can't see it, but the bed has a definite "give" to it, like a presence is sitting beside you. Other times, it rings the doorbell in the middle of the night. And wakes me up. I'm ok with it. It was here before me, so what are you going to do anyway.

Get out of that house!

Talk about a boo-t-y call, no thanks!

Hmm. In this more recent pic, I noticed the Heath Bars were missing....

I would enjoy the rest of the selection as well!
