The large overhead chandelier was not turned on. The teacher was using a floor lamp. The chandelier lights started going on and off, over and over.

Howard Chapel Rd bridge over the Patuxent RiverThere is a family cemetery located 1/4 from the bridge along Howard Chapel Rd at Elton Farm Rd. Used between 1892-1939, about 18 grave sites are there. By the dates on the tombstones, there are lots of young people burried there. I have heard by several people that have seen things near the bridge down the road. There are no houses around & very little traffic. I was there last night doing a training drill & had a feeling of being watched the whole time. It's very very dark there at night. There is a parking area next to the bridge.

- Luficer -- 9 Dec 2015 -- A group of ten met in Ellicott City for fresh-roasted coffee, dessert and exploration of various spiritual topics. Details
- Thistle Mill at Ilchester, Md. -- 4 Nov 2015 -- Quick jaunt to site of infamous paperworks, spirit sightings, gruesome deaths, poisonous chemicals, strange goings-on, long dark interest. Numerous photos of the now demolished (and excavated) mill and surrounding area. Liz' rods were wildly communicative (as usual), this time with a spirit identifying itself as "BZZ". We wonder if this was the suicidal Robert Buzzard identified by Lonster in his investigations of the mill. See the old report in EGQ1
