Steve and Amy are back with an all-new episode chock-full of paranormal activity. Their investigations lead to frightful findings at a family home in Parkersburg, WV, where a terrified mother worries about the safety of her 8 children.

While Steve uncovers the property’s tragic history, Amy encounters an evil entity intent on hurting the living.

Their client, Tisha, and her family have been seeing apparitions ever since they moved into their house 3 years ago. Tisha claims to hear loud, disturbing noises in the attic at night and some family members believe that they have actually been touched by this mysterious entity.

The family is deathly afraid and desperately wants this activity to stop. Will Steve and Amy combine their findings to help this horrified family find peace or will they continue to walk on egg shells in their own home?

From fancy hotels, airline dating, or gadgets that get rid of jet-leg, our selection of travel blogs this week gives you even more reason to get bitten by the “travel bug.”

Those goodies in your hotel room’s minibar seem so tempting until you see their price tags. But check out Oysterblog’s list for the most expensive minibar offerings and that $10 bag of chips might seem to be a bit more reasonable compared to these pricy treats that could cost you an arm and a leg!

With the recent release of HBO’s The Girl and the current success of Hitchcock starring Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Scarlett Johansson, there has been renewed interest in one of the world’s most well-known (and somewhat creepy) movie directors.

Alfred Hitchcock fans — new and old — will be happy to know that many of the settings from his movies are still around and accessible.

I actually imagined myself as Melanie Daniels (played back in the day by Tippi Hedren) during a recent visit to Potter School House near the California coastal town of Bodega Bay. (Luckily, unlike Tippi, I was not attacked by a flock of crazed crows.) The school and the town featured prominently in The Birds. The school is now privately owned and closed to the public but is perfect for pictures. READ MORE

Picture this: 5 miles of wiring, draped around an 80-foot-tall Norway spruce – topped by a Swarokvski star. It all adds up to one very magical sight: the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting — tonight, in Rockefeller Plaza. READ MORE

Ladies and gentleman, this is your pilot speaking. Please make sure your seats and tray tables are in their full, upright and locked position.

Houston, the toys have landed! And there are just too many of them in the state of Texas – but not for Jordan.

Jordan’s first stop while in Houston is to Victor’s house where he has a garage filled to the brim with vintage cars, and there is one in particular that catches Jordan’s eye — the Green Hornet Black Beauty car. The only problem is that it also happens to be Victor’s favorite item. Will Jordan be able to haggle it from Victor’s iron grip?

Next, Jordan is off to Rita’s house where the “heroes in a half shell” he discovers have been living in boxes in a garage instead of an underground, super-secret sewer fortress. The classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures are definitely worth a pretty penny, but will Jordan offer Rita the right price or will he be sent packing to his home in New Jersey without his little green friends?

Last night on Dangerous Grounds, Todd Carmichael traveled to Borneo in search of a rare coffee bean that even he hadn’t tasted before: Liberica, also known as “Elephant” coffee — named for its massive beans.

Upon finding the elusive bean, Todd brought the coffee back to the La Colombe factory in Philadelphia for a tasting with his closest buddies, who also happen to be coffee aficionados. Get an inside look at what happens when coffee experts taste something new.

Baggage Battles specialists Sally, Mark and Laurence

The auction specialists head to Greensboro, NC, a city nicknamed “The Gate City”  because it’s a major hub for import and export. Go behind the scenes to get a sneak peek of tonight’s episode. Laurence and Sally come across some lucky ladies, and Mark’s knowledge of NASCAR comes in handy.

When the specialists weren’t previewing their auction items or bidding against one another, they took time to enjoy the Southern charm of Greensboro: Its food and music, especially. See all the places they visited during their off-hours in the Greensboro Travel Guide.

The days may be growing shorter, but one thing got longer this past month. Mustaches, and lots of them. Mustaches popped up all over the world in November — with some of the best sported by celebrities from Kris Jenner to David Beckham — for Mustache November. Known simply as Movember,  this annual movement calls on men worldwide to grow out their facial hair in solidarity against prostate cancer and other men’s health issues. What began in Australia as a campaign to raise awareness of these issues has now grown to become a worldwide cultural phenomenon.

The city’s wonderful restaurants, fabulous shopping, hundreds of arts and culture venues, and world-class museums prove that Atlanta is one of the fastest-growing — and most exciting — destinations in the country. Home to the world’s largest aquarium, the new World of Coca-Cola, dozens of beautiful parks and the High Museum of Art, the hometown of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. is a gorgeous city that has made a name for itself in the new South. At the same time, Atlanta seamlessly exudes laid-back Southern charm and high-arts cultural appeal, both of which account for the millions of visitors that descend upon the city each year.

While filming Dangerous Grounds in Colombia in search of their best coffee beans, our intrepid travel host Todd Carmichael had a close call when his Jeep rolled off of a cliff. Thankfully, he survived with barely a scratch. Read Todd’s firsthand account of surviving Colombia’s dangerous mountain roads.

Today it was a tree that changed everything.

The roads – if they can be called that – leading up the Sierra Nevada Mountains (North Colombia) are ones for the books: steep, deeply rutted, muddy, criss-crossed by rivers and carved in the side of the mountains. If you fear heights, then you fear these roads. This goes triple for the one leading up from the Villedupur side.
