"Away peacefully in her favourite bedroom following the funeral. Her staff is given small portions of her wealth and dismissed from service. At this point. You might think that the servants would finally start talking about what was going on inside that house but still nobody will say thing. Meanwhile sarah's undeveloped land cells pretty easily but the house does not at the time of sarah's death at the place has a maze of one hundred sixty rooms. Ten thousand windows in two thousand doors is just way too complicated in huge for any ordinary family to live there after four months up for auction. Only one person makes an offer. His name is john brown. And he's an amusement park owner. John looks at sarah's old house. And thanks well. I'm not going to live in it but i could buy it and turn it into a tourist attraction so brown purchases the house and eventually renamed it the winchester mystery house and for the first time ever. He invites the public inside and boy. Do people get their money's worth. This place is basically a fun. Housemaids mirrors a staircase with seven turns even though it only goes up one story. There's doors too small to walk through and there's this small nondescript interior room that everyone can't stop talking about it has three doors but only one really works as an exit another door drops you eight feet into the kitchen below and the third leads down a narrow passageway to a closet. Allegedly this room was used for seances as more journalists. Visit the house. Newspapers hint that the winchester mansion may even be haunted. It's enough to attract the attention more visitors more journalists and special guests like the famed magician. Harry houdini in october nineteen twenty four. Houdini is visiting san jose for a performance when he needs. One of the winchester house tour guides. The guide insists that houdini come by for a private tour. Lieven arrange a seance. Now who team doesn't exactly believe in ghosts but he figures he might as well see what all the hoopla's about if anything maybe he can. Debunk this haunted house theory once and for all so reportedly houdini heads to the home just before midnight. For a seance in that strange little private room and not only does houdini fail. To debunk anything. Supposedly he walks away completely freaked out the details of houdini. Experience are scant. But i do know that he saw sarah winchester's old collection robes and somehow learned that she uses a different robe for each spirit which is kind of cagey but many people believe this meant. He saw the ghost of sarah winchester self over the next few decades more creepy stories about the house surface one day. A guide is leading a tour when she hears a cy outside. Sarah's favourite bedroom at first. She thinks no big deal. It's just a guess that fell behind so she goes out into the hallway to look. That's when she sees a small dark form glide around the corner and disappear another time. There's an incident in his room. Sarah called the hall of fires. The room itself is kind of bizarre. It's just as open empty. Space with four large fireplaces. Some say that theory uses this room is a sauna for her aching joints. But who really knows for sure supposedly one evening. A grounds keeper is up on a ladder working on one of the fireplaces. He feels this light tap on his shoulder. he turns around as to me. It's one of his colleagues except there's no one there so the man goes back to work until he feels something push him hard almost like. It's trying to knock him off the ladder. He's so spooked that he drops what he's doing. Climbs off the ladder and runs to a different part of the house. He leaves the job totally unfinished. I mean who could blame him. Then there's the frequent sightings of a ghostly man pushing a wheelbarrow. He's often seen working on a fireplace in the ballroom or the coal shoot in the basement and is believed. Be one of sarah's former handyman. There's a bushy-haired woman in an upstairs window and some even say they've seen the ghost of sarah herself roaming the front lawn. Now it's possible. This is the work of a few overactive imaginations after all if someone tells you that a house is haunted. You're bound at that. Every little bump or breeze is a sign of something spectral. But if we did back into sarah's life we might find something different because as it turns out. Sarah was not only aware of the ghosts in the house. She may have built it for.

"And one of the things you have to do when you're reading geology. Is that you have to map. Six square miles of somewhere in the united kingdom produce a map of the geology of somewhere and i chose almost random the southern part of the island of raza and produced. I got it out. I've kept my the paper i wrote. I lived in a roofless croft. I cooked over a primus stove incredibly lonely. Except it could be sure that every time i went out with my geological hammer and my clean ometer and my compass my little bottle of hydrochloric acid if i did that on the sabbath on sunday an islander would come up and say mr winchester. You're not supposed to be on the lord. Stay with your hammer. Go back and rest to reflect in and ruthless kroft the rain but the map is such a joy to produce. It's more or less right. And what we lose the joy that you had in keeping reykjavik in your head which. Gps you've no idea about and use it all the time for convenience sake the so much precision behind the modern world. What are the invisible aspects of this absolute bang on precision that have become an essential part of our lives. Well could lord when with stop. Where does it start him and gps is a classic example. But i mean the steam engine that start with that the starting point precision has a birth date. We know when the very first precise thing was ever made was born on the fourth of may seventeen seventy six two months to the day. Before the founding of the united states of america it was born in north wales on the fourth of may the steam engine had already been invented by. James watt the simple fact that water when heated to a one hundred degrees celsius undergoes. A phase change turns into a gas which is one thousand seven hundred sixty times bigger than the water so from that. You know you can get work. So how'd you do it. Well you have engine piston and cylinder and variety of gears and so forth and source of heat and a source of fuel and water to turn into steam. So what did all of that. What he couldn't do was make a proper cylinder. He would took us in those days. Seventy and seventy five and prior to make a cylinder. You took a sheet of iron and hammered. Now we didn't have it until it formed a rough circle and then you welded it together. Turned it vertically. Lowered your piston in. It said everything to work in as you might imagine with this with the cylinder that steam went everywhere. It was highly inefficient. Just produced a lot of wasted energy. He couldn't even get near the machine. Couldn't you couldn't be scalded. It was extremely dangerous. I was huffing and puffing behemoth with covered in this cloud scalding steam and it didn't create that much much much just sort of useless. The theory was entirely right. Seventy miles away to the northwest. Denby was a man called john. Iron mad wilkinson. John wilkinson was lunatic and certify lunatic. John iron mad because he loved iron. He had a lot of nine online but he used to puddle hammers and do all sorts of things. He made a desk out of it. He made a table out of it. Made the both out of it. He made a coughing out of it. And this was before the me too. Movement really got underway hughes to whenever calmly lady was apparently coming to his workshop. He would lie believe fully closed in his own coffin and when she arrived. Spring out to surprise jolly japes. You know well..

"Oh interesting. I didn't know that. So the theory is that samuel jackson's character in hateful eight is a descendant of samuel jackson's character in django saying so like there. There's like a continuation here and Hatefully to set after emancipation whereas django is set during slavery during it right. So it's i thought that was pretty interesting to kind of think about and They're apparently there are characters and there's like theories around this their characters in some of the movies that are said to also be like the ancestors of characters and like pulp fiction and reservoir thing. Yeah i like that. I liked that kind of stuff and tarantino would do that for sure. So he's a film buff gephardt. So yeah you definitely. Would i would. I would literally do anything for him to make a samurai movie. I think it would be absolutely like combining hateful. Eight django style is not really the same time but you know what i mean older time with the kill bill style. Violence on man would be so good i was gonna say there's that whole scene in kill bill. That wasn't enough apparently. Yeah no it wasn't it wasn't because it's not really a samurai movie. You know what i mean. You're right. It's not not seven samurai. It's not you know the older style movies. And i think he would do a fantastic job but but the enemy and kill bill is oh so so so so so all right so i think alex is on his way back I can hear him. he's i think he's just put the kids to bed. My bug in his house is working out really well so i think yeah okay cool. Hey alex hey by the and we were so bored without humor. Oh yeah. I'm sure we had nothing to talk about. So that chad. I don't get along. Alex wanted to tell you that correct. That's very very true. You guys are weird. And i have no idea what you're talking about okay. That's fine so moving forward on word as they say so. Back to the winchester mystery house in an effort to try to get these These spirits to Stop haunting her. Essentially in order to try to Better her mental health and also follow this mediums advice Sarah winchester went ahead and moved out to san jose like we said before so she went out and hired these builders to construct.

"Yeah because it's made. It's a major high. Because he takes over the company right william succeeds in the company and then the daughter dies and then he died six months later. So it's like a. They went really high. And then they're gonna like down in the dumps and now she's all alone and i think that plays into a lot of what we're gonna talk about here. My opinion so following the inheritance the widow winchester visited a boston medium. The boston medium allegedly channeling. Her late husband informed her that she must leave for the west where she must continually build a house for herself in the spirits of those killed by the winchester rifles. Now and she's doing this on an inheritance of twenty point one million dollars which is equivalent to five hundred fifty million today like that is right. That is a mind blowing amount of money. Right definitely because i mean back then. It's not easy to move across the country right. No not at all right. I mean if it weren't for this medium saying that this is where she had to go which i mean. I think that you know. We'll get into this probably later but You know. I i think that this medium kinda played on on her grief at the time and i think that you know whether this medium was real or not like that's left up in the air what we'll just kind of leave it to you. Form your opinion about that but obviously she's overwhelmed with grief everything that you could ever possibly have happened to you as a person just happened to you a giant inheritance. Your only child died in your husband died. And you're left with this controlling stake in a company that is responsible for the death of thousands if not if not hundreds of thousands of people and also at the same time. It's not like she was a An authoritarian authoritative member in the company prior. I mean yes. She was She was the wife of the owner and founder and all that but now she's the she's inherited this so she has the stress and kind of like what you said. I guess i'm just reiterating the stress of that on top of now she. She doesn't just have this inheritance. She has to literally make decisions now. And it's i mean that alone medium renault medium. I mean that could make somebody want to leave and go far away right right. Yeah and there's really you know back then. There's no further police to get the other side of the country. Right curious to see. I would love to see like numbers wise. How long the trip took and all that kinda stuff. It'd be something interesting to look up. That would actually especially back on. You know right. Yeah so moving on in eighteen eighty four. Sarah went on to purchase a farmhouse in san jose. California like ryan had said earlier. It is where it's located. And he. I'm sorry and she began to then build her mansion. She hired carpenters. Who worked on the house day and night until it became a seven storey mansion. That did not happen overnight. In fact it happened over her entire life. Like we're about to find out. So here's some interesting things about the process and about The mental state that Sarah winchester was in at the time of all this. So like we said before..

None of us felt comfortable so in terms of that agency that emily was talking about. I think none of us actually felt like we had any agency in other words. Emily would pick up the phone.

This Land Is Whose Land?

"Simon winchester joins us now from the berkshires. His latest book is called land. How the hunger for ownership shaped the modern world simon. So good to have you here. Well lovely to be a thank. You bye here. We mean of course a little bit far. The last time i think you were on this podcast it was in person but perhaps it is fitting that you are on your own piece of land for this conversation. How'd you come to want to write a book about land and land ownership by used to live in hong kong and came back in ninety seven had passed back into the hands of chinese coast. Should have done then decided largely on the advice of old enough. See then new york times correspondent in hong kong. That i should perhaps move to new england and so rather than go to london. I came to the new world. I'd be correspondent here in the seventies the eighties for the guardian and bought a little cottage town code west. Saic about one hundred ten miles. North of new york in duchess county has had few acres of garden and stuff around it but there was a a plumber from the bronx code. Caesar luria who owned a fairly tracts surrounding the house needs to come there and hunt and he was very nice man and he would off to hunting each season he would leave me a cooler with venison doorways a bottle of cognac which was particularly nice then after three or four years. He said to me that he was tired of paying the taxes on this land would i like to buy it and he named price and mice but guess why not okay so i bought the land and it was pretty useless. I have to say smith scale the north face of mountainside so. It wasn't good for raising animals. Now this fake fantasy. But one day i might but it was sort of beautiful in were couple of little streams lots of trees some of them quite magnificent they oak and hickory and of course north florida pine cherry and ash of animals. We bob cat. Once there were dare of course apply. Gm rabbits and i liked it but it was not particularly useful and eventually with this sort of fantasy. I had maybe one day. Having animals i came up here to the batches. I so that sam the house done death but kept the land and then there was this sort of major shift in my attitude towards it. When in twenty eleven i became a citizen of this country. Suddenly i realized the by owning these one hundred and thirty acres down in duchess county. I was actually invested in the country. To which is not become a citizen so then became rather interested more interested in the land itself and in history so i started digging around realized overstated. I aborted from this mr aaron. He had deep fried to that body from someone else and so the chain went back until it stopped in about the late seventeenth century. There was paperwork all the way back to then. Then i know strode duchess county in poughkeepsie. They've got all the papers but then he came to a shuddering halt because it was at that time that the documents were mainly written in dutch. Where henry hudson's explores who had come up the river. That is his name but he was working there. Being for instance she was working as an agent for the dutch. And he had first acquired land from the original settlers by non who were the mckeekan indians. But they didn't have the concept of ownership say hunted and they gathered and they settled and all the rest of it superintendent but didn't own and then i began to think well the difference between their attitude land. They're feeling was that you can never own land than you could. Own the breeze with the ocean. To maya too is. This is mind. Shoo everybody away. You start at the right to do so. That was an interesting development. And i thought maybe there would be a book and so i put it to my editor and she said yes. That would be an admirable idea. But don't keep the united states only have a look at where this originated and how it's because around the world and so that was not traveling and wondering about oh beginning in duchess county.

"This term is used as an umbrella term that encompasses other mythological creatures like leprechauns elves trolls banshee changelings etc. Because of this their accounts descriptions of what fairies can look like an appearance in our world can change throughout time and their looks are a lot more diverse than humans. So it's also a common thought that most varies don't fly but even those do don't have wings in certain folklore. Some people dare not say the name ferry and instead you'll see them referred as many other things like the other crowd the good folk the good people etc fair folk probably. They really don't want to say the word fairy often. They do this as a sign of respect and possibly invoked their good nature rather than their mischievous one. Some more states that varies are actually nature spirits and that they are invisible life force that aids and the growth of vegetation and earth's biosphere itself although not inherently evil various are said to be mischievous and tricksters and pull pranks on people that were mostly harmless however with any group of living things there are some that were malevolent and violent and those were the ones people are afraid of. Of course sometimes those who dealt with them would end up hurt dead end up going crazy or catatonic. Their origin varies. They can be found all over european folklore from scandinavian to french irish british etc. Their origin can even differ from pre and post christian ideology pre christian folklore says that they are a supernatural race at lived in the hills tombs beneath the sea or on faraway islands. There were said to be old. Gods called the two a day dannon okra. They were invaded by the my lesions who were the ancestors of the celtic population of ireland. Where the two day. Dannon were driven underground. After losing a battle with these supernatural beings living underground the lived in parallel with the above ground world called the other world or the fairy room and became hit into the beings above ground so as each generation passed their stature and power diminished and they were known in folklore as tiny creatures that were forced underground to evade the hordes of invading humans. Hollow hill is where the two a day dannon were forced to flee. This believe that this is where. The ferry room was located post-christian ideology combined with celtic mythology. So as to get people to convert from their ancient pagan beliefs to christianity So let's just mix in a little bit of what you already believe so you can make will. Yep it. Sounds a bit like the The window thing yeah So the ancient gods returned into humans and fairies are believed to be fallen angels as a result of leaving heaven but not picking sides during the rebellion when some angels were blindly led by lucifer when god closed the gates to heaven..

So thomas becket. He is venerated as a saint and martyr by both the catholic church and the anglican church He engaged in conflict with henry. The second king of england over the rights and privileges of the church and at one point excommunicated the archbishop of york so tough rain away to france for a bit under the protection of king. Louis the seventh of france but then he returned in eleven seventy two england so henry second in england said something to the effect of like ugh. This guy is driving me. Four of his knights interpreted this as a command to go. Get rid of thomas becket So on december twenty ninth seventy reginald fitz ertz huge morville william to tracy and richard le breton showed up at canterbury cathedral. According to accounts left by the monk jer vase of canterbury and i witnessed named edward grim. The knights placed their weapons under a tree outside the cathedral and hid their chainmail armor on your cloaks before entering the cathedral to challenge becket priest the night. He's hold beckett. They were taking him to winchester england to give count of all of his actions and kind of like hold him accountable in front of people but becket refused so the four nights retrieved their weapons and rushed back inside the cathedral. Oh my god. I beckett proceeded to the main hall for evening prayers and the other monks tried to like themselves into different parts of the joe for get said to them. It is not right to make a fortress out of the house of prayer in order them to reopen the doors so the four nights wielding they're drawn swords ran into the room saying like thomas becket. He's a traitor. To the king the knights found beckett in his spot near the door of the monastic cloister the stairs into the crypt and the stairs leading up to the choir of the cathedral where the monks were all. They're like still saying their prayers. Like oh no right. There's just four guys having running in with okay upon seeing them becca. I am no traitor. And i'm ready to die so Edward grandma eyewitness. He wrote a very extensive account of exactly what happened. I will save you all the details. Let's just say that for nights wielding swords kill the priest in canterbury cathedral. That's terrible so soon. After his death the faithful throughout europe european venerating beckett as a murder in february eleven seventy three which was just a little more than two years after his death. He was canonized by pope. Alexander the third and so sure typically like canonization of saints takes lake decades. Yeah stuff happened so the fact that this happened so quickly was kind of saying that. This guy was a big deal. So related trivia. Facts about thomas becket. Geoffrey chaucer's the canterbury tales. Ninety two is set in a company of pilgrims on their way from southern to the shrine of saint. Thomas becket in canterbury cathedral. Okay never made that connection no me neither ever okay So the schreiner was built between eleven eighty and twelve twenty and up to one hundred thousand. Pilgrims would have visited the shrine every year for more than three hundred years. That's my gosh locked. Yes it was adorned in marble gold and jewels and murdered saints. Tombs was one of unparalleled splendor in fifteen thirty eight. during the reformation. The shrine was destroyed following the orders of henry. The eighth who definitely be talking about in a little bit more twenty. Twenty researchers digitally reconstructed the raised sanctuary and available to view on the beckett story online and we'll share linked to that because it's really interesting how they did that. They took This thing had been such a big deal for more than three hundred years. And then it was raised more than four hundred and fifty plus years ago at this point and so they took accounts that the pilgrims had made that other monks had made in in digitally recreated which is pretty up and also modern works based on the story of thomas becket include. Tes elliott's nineteen thirty. Five play murder in the cathedral later adapted the opera assassination cutter. Dry ill the brando pizza'd in nine hundred fifty eight. You did that. Can i tell you flawlessly Also nineteen fifty-nine play by John we called beckett which was made into a movie with the same title and paul. Webb's play four nights in nair's borough which was written in one thousand nine hundred nine which recounts the aftermath of the murder of thomas becket by the four nights who made the worst career choice in history. Yeah that's goes without saying well if you don't if all of these facts don't stick in your head. Look at the name k. e. t. the cane. His name is right in the middle. And if you look at it. It looks like four blades. Good the name so four blades. Stuck together by the four to killed him in canterbury. That's thomas becket.

"It's a water tank. It caught fire Damage damage the tank houses. Well so and eventually they actually ended up moving. This tank house like physically moving it further from the property just because they didn't want any further issues to happen Which i thought was pretty pretty wild actually and now coming into like the current timeframe. The winchester mystery house is actually incorporated. The mission is to kind of keep the home in the gardens open for future generations. And they've done so many cool things so they have a restoration of the victorian gardens in one thousand nine hundred seventy. They're granted a historic or a granted state historic landmark status in nineteen seventy four It's actually on the national register of historic places. Flashlight tours in the nineteen eighties. This is actually what. I got to attend which was pretty cool. Flashlight tour. The old well houses moved one hundred feet. Remember said into a spacious new courtyard now. Then this is actually where it gets kind of kind of cool There are more and more towards that kinda get linked to this and eventually in a twenty eight or twenty eighteen. Yes winchester was actually filmed. It's a movie with helen. Mirren plane sarah winchester. It's actually a horror movie kind of loosely based but based on the story sarah winchester and that movie was pretty decent. And i definitely watched really. Wow because i looked it up in it had horrific reviews. Okay as a person who's a fan of the story. I think. I like that is true that liked it otherwise. Yeah yeah that's valid because that carries a lot of weight. When you're into the story. I wanted to watch it. I watch the trailer and it looked. It looked pretty good. Do you think that she was just immensely. Depressed had a lot of money and was keeping her mind busy by building this house or do you think it was linked to the spirits in any way so. I think that that she believes wholeheartedly. That it was because of the spirits I think that There was a huge a huge part of her. That believed one hundred percent that she had to do this. Based on the based on what that psychic medium had told her so. I think that she was doing it for the reasons that she said she was doing it. I think that. I think that we're the money comes into play as she had the resources to do it but also she had the money that no one would tell her she was crazy. If you get my right yeah like we talked about this in a previous episode Actually the georgia guide jones episode. We talked about like the guy making the georgia guide stones. Like at what point he going to say no. You're a crazy person. I'm not building those. Or is he just gonna take the money and build them anyway because it's a lot of money and like to me. I think that bears bears. Its weight here too right. It's like she's willing to pay these carpenters for essentially round..

"So sarah lockwood party values at per day party party party party party already party. So she marries william winchester over the family business right in eighteen sixty two. Sarah and william had one child anne winchester who was born in eighteen sixty six zero married into a prominent family. Tragedy would soon strike her not once but twice in a short period of time so her infant daughter passed away from an. I could not get the saying this right even watch videos. Do you guys know how to say this. Marasmus marasmus marasmus. Yeah yeah so there were like i watched a couple videos on it and there were like two different ways to say it. Sounds like whatever so anyway. it's marasmus. It's a severe form of malnutrition which i would imagine was pretty big back down right definitely as well as what her. What happened next ashley predominant yeah and also i just wanted to throw in the fact that it wasn't because they didn't take care of her because it was a congenital disorder that she was born with so yeah. They actually fed her correctly and took care of her but it was like they couldn't really fight it at that time. There were edison to take care of her yet right and then her died of tuberculosis. Which was also like ryan said pretty big back then so. Correct me if i'm wrong. This was only about six months after oliver. Winchester died correct. Yup yup. i think you're on the head six months so so just to sum that up for anybody who's wondering on those timeframes oliver winchester dies passing this this thing on his onto william william dies six months later and now sarah suddenly in this position. That's right wild like imagine all of that happening all at once like that. Yeah because it's made. It's a major high. Because he takes over the company right william succeeds in the company and then the daughter dies and then he died six months later. So it's like a. They went really high. And then they're gonna like down in the dumps and now she's all alone and i think that plays into a lot of what we're gonna talk about here. My opinion so following the inheritance the widow winchester visited a boston medium. The boston medium allegedly channelling. Her late husband informed her that she must leave for the west where she must continually build a house for herself in the spirits of those killed by the winchester rifles. Now and she's doing this on an inheritance of twenty point one million dollars which is equivalent to five hundred and fifty million today like that is right. That is a mind blowing amount of money. Right definitely because i mean back then. It's not easy to move across the country right. No not at all right. I mean if it weren't for this medium saying that this is where she had to go which i mean. I think that you know. We'll get into this probably later but You know. I i think that this medium kinda played on on her grief at the time and i think that you know whether this medium was real or not like that's left up in the air what we'll just kind of leave it to you. Form your opinion about that but obviously she's overwhelmed with grief everything that you could ever possibly have happened to you as a person just happened to you a giant inheritance. Your only child died in your husband died. And you're left with this controlling stake in a company.

"People have lived in the area of Gloucestershire share. Now known as would chester park since the Romans invaded Britannia but the site of the Winchester Mansion itself began as a hunting lodge in the middle of a heavily wooded deer park. The ducie family purchased the Land Law in Sixteen thirty one renovating it into a Georgian. House called Spring Park. The ducey's kept the house in a near constant state of renovation added several landscaping features to the sprawling four thousand Acre valley including a group of art official lakes in eighteen forty. The second earl of Ducie inherited the property from his recently deceased father. The Legend of what happened that fateful year would be the first indication that something wasn't quite right at the would chester estate. It's no wonder that rumors of full body apparitions, disembodied voices, and the strange smell of extinguish candles persist. Not when the initial occupancy of the mansion turned out to be so very, very strange. Henry was grateful that his father and past he would never say so loud but he could not be happier. He had long toiled in the shadows of Thomas Reynolds Morton look first earl of Ducie. While the reward of inherited title was a nice reward for his time. It wasn't enough Thomas expected a lot out of him henry heated the permanence near the Thomas War around his son the constant lack of approval had driven Henry to dark thoughts. It was unfair that someone who had so much could feel as though they were nothing. He'd contemplated killing his own father regularly. It wished for his father's death a thousand times. But wishes weren't enough. At night he trump of sneaking into his father's room and crushing his windpipe Thomas, Cole ties would stare back at him in defiance but Henry would only press harder. He would steal every ounce of paint from his father that he could. He would revel in at even. This was the retribution he deserved. But by the time, he finally summoned the courage to act on his feelings fate had intervened. His father was dead and Henry would be able to keep his soul free at sin. He should have been overjoyed, but there was a part of him. That was disappointed. Henry had wanted to watch the life leave is father's is. Instead, S. he stood in the church on that summer morning he saw the corpse of an older man that felt nothing like his father. This husk of a person wasn't even the slightest bit intimidating. He was justice Shell Serene still. No fire behind the size no disapproving sneer. To the best of his knowledge Thomas Reynolds, Morton had never looked serene is life. Death was as the saying goes the great equalizer Henry didn't WanNA. Feel equal to his father he wanted to feel better that him. His shock at being robbed of the chance to end his father's life was eventually swallowed by his own greed. He held the title and the purse strings that once belonged to Thomas. The legacy had been passed onto him and he could do whatever he wanted with that power. His first act of filial disobedience was going to be a party. He would holden enchanted forest themed masquerade at his father's last real estate acquisition but converted Hunting Lodge in Winchester Park. It was still under construction, but the ballroom was mostly finished and the incomplete designed would really add to the atmosphere. Henry woke with a sense of clear purpose on the day of the party even though he held the title for weeks, this would be his entrance into high society as an earl. The people would give him the respect they never gave his father. A. Played softly as Henry mingled with his guests, he welcomed as many people as he could bobbing out of conversations whenever he grew tired of the subject matter. Most of these guests were more his father's friends than his. He despised them, but he couldn't resist the chance to hold his new title and the imminent chaos heads. He outranked nearly all of them now. Though the event was a masquerade few visit guests had been particularly inventive. There was fun and trying to guess who everyone was. Something always gave them away the gate, the bone structure, the laugh. There were at least four uninspiring looking deer and far too many rakish second sons had decided to come as wolves. But there was one person Henry didn't know. A strange masked man was weaving his way through the crowd. He had never introduced himself and his body language was unfamiliar. Henry tried to get closer, but he struggled to even get a clear view of the masked man. The pushed through the of gentry ignoring their complaints. Finally. When the crowd parted they met.

Are Wolves Smarter Than Dogs?

"I've known some dogs that are pretty smart I've also known some that worked. Bless him. But could wolves be smarter. Brain stuff. It's Christian Sager, my dogs, winchester and se blue they are real smart. So I was intrigued when I read a new study that said wolves are more intelligent in some ways than my dogs and all their canine friends whether you have a chocolate lab or a coon hound scientists believe that some modern dogs and wolves descended from a common ancestor between eleven thousand and thirty thousand years ago the new study which was published in the September twenty seventeen. Journal of scientific reports is by an international team of researchers at the wolf? Science Center. In Vienna Austria, they found domesticated dogs cannot make the connection between cause and effect wolves however, can they came to that conclusion by testing and comparing how the two species searched for food after giving them hints about where it was located researchers used fourteen dogs and twelve socialised wolves in their experiments. During the tests, the animals had to choose between two containers one with food. And one without the first thing researchers did was determined whether the animals could make sense of communicative clues by pointing and looking at the container with the food researchers. Next wanted to see how the dogs and wolves responded to behavioral cues the experimental pointed to the container with food, but did not make eye contact with the animals. Finely in the last experiment, the animals had to infer themselves which container had the hidden food using only causal clues like noises made. When the experimenters shook the container with the food both the wolves and the dogs did well on the communicative clue tests all found the hidden food both species however failed the behavioral cue portion without direct. I contact neither dog nor wolf could find the food during the last part of the test. However, only the wolves could make casual inferences as to where the food was located in other words the scientists said the wolves, not the pooches understood cause and effect. Study Author Michelle Lamp from the Netherlands reminded. US. However that the differences can be explained by the fact that wolves are more persistent to explore objects than. As, because dogs are conditioned to receive food from US whereas wolves have to find food themselves in nature. What shocked researchers was that the wolves were able to interpret direct eye to eye contact that understanding of communicative cues researchers said may have facilitated domestication. The study is unique also in that it used dogs that lived in both packs and with families, but the results of the dogs were independent of living conditions.

So we built a tank like a kid's toy which rubber tracks and underneath had wheels. So we'll take but not break anything and how did you get into the James Bond movie. To supply. Thanks. Okay, the power of tanks they you got the PUTT supplied. All, the military vehicles for Saving Private Ryan. Was Elvis choice for the James Bond Films. Thank you a sexist misogynist dinosaur relative to. James. WAISTBAND. Like boys with toys. I wouldn't single. Chatting, sophisticated secret agent shaken but not to stir, we're actually by the river. In Winchester as the people won't buy on a sunny August stay. And a lot of people didn't about you. Thank you very much for joining us software pleasure because of that private lunch last year. So perhaps you could set the record straight firstly in what context did you say the words Jewish people are among? The cleverest in the world. It came up in conversation. About Physics I've always an interest since I was a boy in astrophysics. because. I couldn't believe that one hundred years ago almost. Albert Einstein we're talking about such abstract subjects as light being affected by gravity. And he works out the speed of light, which was a phenomenal thing to do in the nineteen twenties. How did this man come to realizations about what actually control the will then what does control the world? And the whole universe that we live in? So. My interest was based on this philosophy. On physics. And when the lady Mico sleater told me that she was a qualified physicist and she was American. It was almost involuntary question for me to Oscar. She was Jewish and again, this was a private lunch at a private lynch over Cup of coffee. Now, it was also reported to say that you said that black men on the privileged needle help that they can get. Yes. I did say that. Because I've worked all over the world of work in Africa I worked in South Africa Mozambique worked in North Africa. And I realized that a lot of people in Africa are culturally disadvantaged. Cheaper to anybody else. But. The coach or they grow up in doesn't give them the advantages that we have in the West. And therefore, I was always prepared to give them extra help. In addition to this, it was reported in the Times by Phillips that you told Dr Burner. Most Nigerians did not have it in their DNA to be engineers. Is this true? Absolutely not true. This was one of the spiteful comments made by my course. Lita. In a fifth of of temper to get me set knowing. It would certainly get me ten. She also alleged other city things. Like that I was a totalitarian. Does, one become a totalitarian over coffee break. Did you say anything about DNA and African students I said nothing about ten not not an area of expertise of mine. I know nothing about it I only know that gets us by the police. In various reports, you read in the papers on I know nothing about DNA.

"Amongst us. On asked about a strange Mrs Winchester would never confirm if she was indeed building a haunted house. All the same. She was contacting good spirits to see how to best appease the ones that she needed to build rooms for in her house. Perhaps, this is why so many illogical choices were made when it came to the construction of the place. WHO KNOWS One thing I will say in Sarah's defense while she. Appears to be a bit cuckoo for cocoa POPs. She deserves more credit than what she gets from history. She gets more credit. because. She's a brilliant mind and we overlook those quite often an even though she was. A bit rough around the edges trying to appease spirits she was. Hearing how tactful ways to make their lives hell at the same time I mean I. Don't blame her one bit. I would do the same thing if I'm going through all of this crazy construction so I can make a bunch of ghosts. Happy I'm surely quick to get something out the deal. Now. Thirteen different bathrooms and the home only one was functional. This was an effort to confuse any spirits who thought it might be fun to Hong a spigot. She would also do things like sleep in different rooms of the house every night and used secret passageways to get from one room to another. All of this, just to keep the spirits from following her. Sorry guys. But this is where I would pull out the old rock salt draw myself align. Every threshold and keep them out that way. But who am I to? Its. Sarah Winchester passed away of heart complications. Many years later in September of thousand, nine, hundred, twenty two and left all of her belongings to her niece Marian who had been secretary as over recent years. Her will never made a single mention of the house would further added the mystery of all. The house was cleared out in about six weeks and whatever Mary in keep she would sell at auction. About five months later after that, the house was sold for a mere one, hundred, thirty, five, thousand dollars and reopened for towards for the very first time to the public. Talk about a haunting legacy. And My Ryan. Since the reopening of the House back in the twenties employees who now work. There clean to have had run INS with the residents of tragic filled past time magazine actually went onto named the houses one of the most haunted houses in the world. And to this day, draws paranormal investigators, psychics and mediums from all across the gloom fame psychic Sylvia. Browne, even once paid the mystery home of visit. It seems like. Everyday something is. Occurring within the walls of the house things are just right unexplainable and for lack of a better word ghostly. I'm talking about disembodied voices. Strange shadows, odd Colt spots, flickering lights, and slamming doors. Both tour guys and visitors alike over the years have also reported feeling heavy presences while on tours and sometimes even seeing mysterious mysterious figures moving to the halls. Is believed that some Sarah Winchester's loyal workman and servants from the household may still very well be looking out for the place even in death. One such mysterious figured that is often seen as the apparition of a man with hair as black as the night. It said that he was a former handyman. Mainly because he's usually seen repairing fireplace and the ballroom or even pushing a wheelbarrow down a long in extremely dark hallway. Each time he has seen he simply disappears. Without so much as a trace. Once while conducting a tour one of the. Guy For the house took her guest daisy bedroom. This particular bedroom is where Sarah Winchester actually hit during the earthquake in nineteen oh six. The tour guide was about to begin her usual bid about the Becker when all of a sudden there came a heavy. From just outside the bedroom door. Poor Sam thought whenever guests had fallen. So she turned and called out to them then to attend attempted to invite them into the room. When no-one entered she was quite confused. There appeared to be no-one there or is adjusted to the darkness of the Hallway, and then she noticed something that didn't quite make sense to her. A small form that resembled person shrouded by darkness materialized and floated gently around the corner. Sam now slightly terrified quickly whipped around the corner after the string spector but again found no one there. Once more. She heard a heavy. Sigh. Perhaps Sarah Winchester is checking in on things and signed with her discontent. Several years back, there was a craftsman who is assigned to work on a hefty restoration project those taking place in the mansion he decided to get an early start one morning and he found himself in the hall of fires. The name simply comes from the fact that this area contains several fireplaces. House was empty and the stillness of it could be filled. The quiet. Filled his ears as he worked festivities at the top of the. Ladder. Suddenly someone came up from behind and tapped him on the shoulders. Caught off guard, he turned to see what I WANNA. Do you think found anyone of course not. No one was there. Getting back to his work the craftsman told himself that he was just imagining things and all was well. A few minutes past and then he felt someone pushing up against his back. A chill shot straight down his spine he flew down the ladder ran across the house to look for another project to work on. It was more than obvious that someone or something did not want him in the hall of fires. These are but a few of the many goes lean counters that I've come out of the winchester mystery house.

She attended the best schools and Spook four different languages she married well and had herself a little girl in her late twenties. Unfortunately.

As if that was an she received fifty percent ownership of the winchester repeating arms company from her husband that right there guys give her an income of roughly one thousand dollars per day. Anybody want to figure out what that is today go ahead. I encourage you do the math. It's twenty thick twenty, six, thousand dollars a day. That's what it equals out to roughly. Incredible. That's all I can say. I know some people who don't even make that in entire year. Well well, this kind of wealth hunter hands. Mrs. Winchester. Could do just about anything she wanted. Now she was living in a time where a lot of people were turning to spiritualism as a way of dealing with grief. Typically more European in nature this took off in the United States just after the civil war. Grieving wives and mothers were looking for ways to contact today, contact the dead to see if they weren't peace. Make Sense. There was nothing wrong with it. Most people considered it to be a normal thing.

Before we know at Winchester had pack your bags and a trip to California was underway. Sources for the most part thing that due to a rough battle with depression a much needed change of scenery wasn't order. There are those who were close to Ruben seeing a different tune. However, they say that Sarah was under the distinct impression that she was being plagued by spirits of those died because of winchester rifles, the only way to appease them was to move and build a house big enough with them all. The Jay doper desires came into not too long after an e bedroom unfinished farmhouse in these Santa Clara Valley out in California she bought it right away in the building commenced. The best carpenters were sought out and worked on the House twenty four hours a day until it became a monstrous seven storey mansion. And architect was never hired strangely enough and the. Construction was always done rather awkwardly hazardously I guess you could say. The the home contained numerous oddities because of the such as doors and stairs that lead to nowhere windows overlooking other rooms. Many. Accounts attribute these oddities to Winchester's belief in Gos-. By the turn, the century Mrs Winchester had spared no expense for her ghostly mansion and had ruled out twenty four thousand square feet, two thousand doors, one hundred, sixty rooms, thirteen bathrooms, seventeen chimneys, forty-seven fireplaces, fifty two skylights, ten thousand windows, six kitchens, two basements, three elevators, and let's not forget the gorgeous faux grain stained funhouse interior.
