    I am going to look at youtube to find another similar. As it would be an invasion of their privacy if I used the original. Hopefully I might find an explanation.

    I can't stay long we have a visitor.
    I wish I could post this video he has just shown me. It is at night the video keeping an eye on his elderly parents. Then it looks like a ghost comes into the room. I am trying to explain it - very strange.

    Well, I have just sat with our friend and reviewed lots on youtube. I can only find one that is similar and I can't explain it. What can I say to him? Have a drink comes to mind.

    Without seeing the video I can't comment. I have seen pics and vids of alleged paranormal events, but most could be explained as being normal phenomenon.

    I can think of ways that ghost-like apparitions could happen, which does not preclude their real existence, I just don't believe they are spirits of the dead.

    All this night vision stuff looks scary anyway.

    Oh any recording that is doctored such as night vision enhancement or infrared can be discounted. If it isn't recorded as if it was viewed by the mark one eyeball has got to be suspect.

    I have had experience of this when a bunch of people saw a CCTV image using infrared and were convinced they could see a fire. Viewed without the infrared filter all that could be seen was a normal image.
    Eventually we opened the door and looked inside (no windows) and could see no fire. It was all in the image enhancement.

    Anyway I must go now. I will review all the footage again and report back on the morrow.

    Nice to see you haven't abandoned us gizmoslurker.

    Good morning all and one. It's dull and undercast by here with a forecast of blunderstorms and heavy rain laterer, probably when I am without this eve.

    Off to see the quack for my Lovely, then order the bogroom stuff for the loft inversion, then coffee morning with friends and fambly. How ever did I used to find the time to work?

    Out again this evenings! You are as bad as my constant shopping trippings.

    Hi Gizmo I hope the ghost ramblings didn't spook you.
    I post late on Friday and Saturday.

    Sleazy what are you up to today. I bet it is nice to have your lovely around more - fussing over you, so you can faff.

    We were hoping to go to Salisberry today, but, nah the weatherings is dull and windy.
    Going out for a meal with our friend this evening - I hope it don't dribble down.

    Sleazy, have you been reading an MSE Carol? The spirit of posters past, posters present, and posters yet to come?

    Tips, it's going to be a room with a bog in it and twin stinks sinks, so what else would I call it?

    I read that first that you were going to Sainsbury's, not Salisbury.

    Luncheon in a moo, or it may be a cluck, I'm not sure. After that it's an adventure by train to the big city. The venue has changed due to the expected in-clement weather, so we shall be going somewhere other than Clement instead so we are not in it.

    Aftermoon all.
    Have to advise that my pretty is working at school until end of term, so no fussing over me I'm afeared. Apres the news hudlines I shall rest my weary flesh, so will bid you all adieu and may C U later, providing that I wake up.

    Ps - I read it as Sainsbury's too
