Featured Friday: Wachusett Paranormal Research Group
Topic: Featured Friday

To get into the Halloween spirit, today's featured site is all about ghosts and the paranormal - awesome! Wachusett Paranormal Group was created by Certified Paranormal Investigator, Shelly Moore Caron, and her husband, Investigator In-training, Dave Caron. The Carons and team will investigate your house or business if you believe any paranormal activity is afoot.


The WPRG website introduces you to the team and will soon be posting evidence from their investigations! You can even read their interview that was in the Sentinel & Enterprise newspaper which covers why they got into the paranormal, how 90% of all claims can be debunked with scientific evidence, and even how claims increase in the fall and winter because it's darker and people are spending more time inside of their houses. 


Check out WPRG for yourself at WachusettParanormal.com - if you're in the area, you can request for them to investigate a haunted happening in your home, but first you have to fill out an extensive form which will help in determining if you have a legitimate claim or are just trying to pull their leg. They're also looking for new members! Investigators, technicians, and historical researchers can all become a part of WPRG, but only if they are serious and aren't just looking to have fun! (I would love to be a guest investigator, if they'd have me)


Happy Hauntings everyone! Submit your site to be featured next week at featured-site.angelfire.com (bonus points if you're Halloween themed!).

Featured Friday: Neighborhood Pet Services
Topic: Featured Friday

I love dogs. I am jealous of anyone who gets to spend their work day playing with and taking care of dogs. I am incredibly jealous of this week's Featured Friday site's webmaster, Laura Kokoski. Laura is the owner of Neighborhood Pet Services in Western Massachusetts and will walk your dog, pet sit your cat, or just visit your animals during the day to be let out or fed if you have to be out of the house and feel bad leaving them cooped up.


Not only will Laura walk, play with, and feed your pet, she's also an trainer and can teach your pooch some manners! With numerous training seminars under her belt, you can trust that Laura will teach your dog right from wrong - right in the comfort of their own home! Additionally, Laura has been training service dogs since she first became interested in NEADS (National Education for Assistance Dog Service) in 1992. 


Visit neighborhoodpetserv.angelfire.com to read more about Laura's work with animals, testimonials, and of course, view pictures of the cats and dogs she cares for!
