Our guest was
Ghost Hunter's Guide to The San Francisco Bay Area
and numerous other such Ghost Guide Books, the San Francisco book was the the main focus of the evening.
Henry started out by soliciting Dear Santa letters for our subsequent week's Christmas Eve show.
Henry threw me a curve ball to introduce him, but I'd slightly laid out his book titles as a list to provide as an intro.
Jeff began his interest in the paranormal due to see ghosts literally as pedestrians on the street.
He has investigated every place in his books on which he's reported; if he can't officially investigate due to circumstances, he does interview people and research areas' histories.
Jeff spoke of the Golden Gate Bridge being haunted, mostly environmental residual imprints.
He also noted most people jumping face the city, not outwards towards the ocean.
CC in the chat room asked whether he'd been to
Half Moon Bay
but as yet, he hasn't.

and its underground tunnels near Santa Cruz, which I've visisted, we discussed little girl ghost

when staying there; Jeff experienced various strange activity there.
The manager introduced him to staff members who relayed various experiences.
Many apparitions appear in mirrors.
He also indicated many wineries refute
which is open to paranormal investigations and events.
To the places that refuse to acknowledge, Jeff doesn't indicate his interest;
he just wanders about and conceals his background, and point out a "weird vibe" at a certain area, and see if they open up.
Jeff would manage to "lag behind" and "get lost" during tours, at least when they weren't foresightful enough to have a second tour guide set to shepherd such "stragglers"...
Henry brought up a Bay area legend
White Witch of Niles Canyon Road,
the story of which originated in Nortonville, regarding a woman who died a buggy accident in 1878.
Henry asked about the haunted
Heinold's First And Last Chance Saloon
at Jack London Square.
While Craig was notifying the chat room about his relatively new
I went to take us into break, and while I'd written out, I misread it, and thought I was grammatically off
(I'd simply misread the grammer),

He recounted in Nevada on horseback he encountered daytime ghosts, seeming very lifelike until they faded out, faded back in and then out again.
Jeff and Craig concurred how many experiences can be had at Gettysburg on August afternoons.
Jeff stressed that children graves in cemeteries often has activity.
In the large

the place is for sale for "only" $1.6 million...
China Camp Regional Park,
an old fishing village
in the 19th century the Chinese were persecuted, and they created their own community.
Some of the buildings remained, and one can visit; Jeff saw one the apparition of an old Chinese boat gliding past.
Next up was

From around the Autumnal Equinox towards the Winter Solstice, Jeff's psychism seems to increase and he senses ghosts far more stronger.
Henry spoke after haunted theatres, which Jeff reminded how passions are so strong within such structures,
creating a lot of Imprints as well as Attached Spirits staying after death.
Jeff listed as his Favourite Place, which Jeff indicated as Most Fun would be the famous
