Yes I put the Account number and Everything else on the Check

I just paid a stack of bills and I get a little annoyed with the instructions on the envelope flap.  Yes I put the account no., yes I signed my check, no my address has not changed etc. I guess a lot of people make those errors when they pay bills or the instructions would not be there. 

I know I could pay them online but online banking makes me nervous.  I don’t trust the internet.  I have to have a Paypal account but that is all the money I want on the net.

Bedford Ghost Story


I am still finding great New River Valley ghost stories!  I don’t necessarily believe they are true but they are interesting!  You never know!

The Seven Gates of Hell

This ghost story is about a place in Bedford, Virginia called the Seven Gates of Hell.  A house on a hill has seven black iron gates that lead up to the house.  The story goes back to a legend that began in the 1900’s about an insane family that went on a killing spree of African Americans.

Supposedly in the 1930s more were killed by the Klu Klux Klan.  My source says The Knights on Columbus but I believe that is an error.

Anyway, the grounds are so spooked that people are too afraid to walk up the hill to the house.  The gates are always open on Hall ‘ o Ween.  Spooky stuff!

I found this story on Ghostvillage.com
