    I know the show is kind of lame, but the show Sunday night was filmed in my hometown last December. Local family with money problems had a fire in their house and were living in a trailer in the yard. Last summer the father and oldest son drowned in a local lake. The town was in the process of getting the money to rebuild the house, but the TV show heard about it. I admit, they really overbuilt for this small town as the house looks really out of place, but a good story if anyone is interested.

    Yah, thats the place. You should see it in person. Huge castle with two older, small homes on either side of it. I'll try to get a picture of the street and post it up.
