Koa, a 6-year-old Lab, was chasing lizards in the backyard of her San Francisco home when she discovered three orphaned baby rabbits in a nest in the dirt. Ever since, owner Tina Case says, Koa has taken on the role of mom to the two survivors. “They hop all over her and always find their way to the crook of her legs, where it is warm and sheltered. Koa has never been a mother, and these are like her puppies.” As soon as they’re big enough, Tina by Superduper

The Emlen Physick Mansion in Cape May, New Jersey. Probably one of the most active haunted houses in the United States. Since the last family member died in 1935, no one has been able to live in the house for more than a few months.    The mansion has since been restored and, luckily for lovers of the paranormal, is now open year around as a museum.    The dead, definitely do not rest at the Physick Estate. by melanie

At night, parts of the road are unusually dark and cold.

Jar lighting has been a popular trend in the last 2 years. I really like the look of this light because the jars have a cut glass look to them and the use of the edison bulbs give it a very industrial chic look.

The first episode of I Love Lucy premiered on CBS on Monday, October 15th, 1951 at nine o’clock and hasn’t gone off air since. As I Love Lucy has been passed down from generation to generation, it has been translated into seventy-seven languages, produces millions of dollars for CBS each year, and has been estimated to be the most watched television show of all time.

The park was completed and scheduled for a grand opening just a few short weeks before the disaster at Chernobyl in 1986. The park has been left abandoned ever since the evacuations. The gloomy atmosphere of the park reminds us of the horror that was Chernobyl and serves as an eerie anomaly of chance. by faye

The Salem Witch Trials (1602-1693) resulted in the deaths of several "accused" witches, most of whom were hung. Since then paranormal activity abounds in and around Salem. Gallows Hill seems to be quite active, as does St Mary's Cemetery, where strange noises have been heard and a mysterious light has been seen by several. It also experiences a heavy feeling that some call evil. Also, many of the houses that once belonged to the trial participants are said to experience paranormal activity. by lakisha
