Vacation Time
I'm off to Europe for a two-week vacation, so don't expect that much in the way of posts during that time, though I'll be trying to check in from time to time. The itinerary is Loch Ness, Liverpool, Gloucester, Paris, Southampton, Canvey Island, and finishing up in York. So I'll be moving around quite a bit. Speaking of Loch Ness, I've haven't seen any word on how the Virgin sacrifice at the Loch went off. I'll try to find out when I'm there.

Pfft, you big hoaxer. You're clever, but you're not going to fool us with this hoax. I bet you're going to use this site: to fake pictures from it.

And when the great hoaxers ran out of logs and ripples and virgins to sacrifice they mooved into the tourist trade!!! Enjoy the trip, I strongly recomend a trip to Borley, but dont expect any hospitality, they dont like publicity, hence all the books websites documentories etc etc.......!

You're right.

People who live on Canvey Island don't even go there.

Maybe the hoax is suggesting these places as good to visit, start with Loch Ness and get sillier...

Blochy, one only visits Southampton if one has relatives to visit there (and thus a free place to stay). Same goes with Canvey Island.

But, they're not as big as they appear...they're supposed to be about as big as a child's hand...which is big...but this pic makes them look like they're bigger than a cat!
