Linda Vista Hospital is a prime piece of real estate whether your a ghost hunter, or just have a taste for the strange. These photos are well worth the time it takes to view them.
Linda Vista Hospital was used as an actual hospital up until the mid-eighties, I believe, based on evidence we found on site, though I don’t know exactly when it closed. Since then, it’s been used as a site for several movies and TV productions, including Pearl Harbor and possibly Scrubs.
Interestingly, according to theShadowlands.net, Linda Vista hospital is reportedly haunted.
People who go there have reported seeing lights and hearing a little girl laughing and playing around in there. Screams, cold spats, noises, cries, moaning, lights coming on and off, noises could even be heard from the street at night with no one inside. Hospital is sometimes used for filming by production companies. A doctor has been seen on the main building, corner window, top floor looking out through the window. He was wearing a doctor’s suit and a tie. Lights go on and off throughout the whole building. There is a room full of cages and a group of people claimed seeing a mentally ill patient(ghost) roaming inside a cage in that room. Strange noises are heard around the buildings. Cold and warm spots are felt in certain places.
There’s a new allure about Radio Shack. And it has nothing to do with Terri Hatcher. Your Pocket Calculator hosts have had the serendipitous timing to cross paths with customers clutching some neat 70s goodies in these stores. As the chain has been pushing its repair service on all brands, folks are dredging up all sorts of vintage electronics looking assistance from their neighborhood Shack. 6 channels, 5 watts and $200 a pair in 1975 bucks!
How could a stereo micro- cassette recorder be a miss? With an FM tuner to boot? Maybe it was the Road Runner logo that took it to an early grave. The SR-11 was released in 1982 amidst the great walkman “boom” of the early ’80s.
I think I am going to have to start locking up my office supplies when I leave the office everyday. I work earlier than most office personnel (6am-4pm), and it seems that at least every other day I notice that there is something missing from my office.
I am fairly particular about the utensils/tools that I use when I am working. I like a certain kind of pen, certain pencil (with .9mm lead), sharpies, and about 5 different colors of highlighters. I do architectural work, so the various colored highlighters are a MUST for me.
Everyone else likes my assortment of utensils so much, that they often help themselves to it. The reason that it bothers me is because I have never turned anyone down that has asked me for something. If the rest of the clan would just ask (instead of waiting until I leave to steal things), I would gladly give them the item that they are requesting. It isn’t like I don’t know who is taking the stuff anyway… I can see it sitting on their desk.
As the new room is nearing it’s completion, the wife has stepped up her game and has been out shopping for kids bedding. We have went through the usual suspects:
Winnie the Pooh
The Little Mermaid
The one thing that we haven’t found that our daughter seems to be the most fond of is ducks. The wife has pretty much decided to just find some material and make the curtains and bedding. She is good at stuff like that! She made all the curtains in our house, and made me a really great RealTree Camo blanket. We make a pretty good team. I can build pretty much anything, and she can make pretty much anything to compliment what I build!
