Harry Shepherd sees things. Ever since he was a boy, Shepherd said, he has possessed the rather unusual gift of spotting ghosts. "I was in my back yard when I was 5, and I saw a color transparency kind of like you would see at Disneyland's Haunted House. I thought everybody could see it." Shepherd, 52, now chairs the Paranormal Research Department at the Learning Light Foundation in Anaheim, a private group that studies the supernatural.

Deep in the heart of Orange County sits an old church visited regularly by a peasant who has been dead since the 12th Century. His name is Kavar, and, speaking in a strained staccato voice through the efforts of an experienced channeler, he has for years offered advice, predictions and witticisms to anyone willing to listen. The same building is home to a monthly support group for people claiming to have been abducted by UFOs.

You've done it: retired early. But now you're staring at 30, 40, maybe 50 years of golf. Nelson Malwitz is guessing you want something more. The Connecticut resident founded the Finishers Program, an organization designed to give folks in their 40s and 50s a second career as missionaries.
