    Ghost Adventures at Villisca, Iowa tonight

    Hey everybody. Just wanted to let you know that the episode of Ghost Adventures visiting the Villisca axe murder house is on at 8:00 on Travel Channel. I know that most of you like me will already be watching the ISU game so they are also airing it again at 10:00. If you have never heard of the Villisca axe murders here is the link to their website The Official Site of the Villisca Axe Murders of 1912

    This show is a guilty pleasure of mine. It's kind of a bad show, but interesting at times.

    Use to go there all the time in High School. Then the little girl left w/ me supposedly and all kinds of crazy stuff started happening. I had to go back to the house and they asked her to stay there and all the weird stuff stopped happening. Crazy stuff and I will never be returning.

    Lol, my wife is from there and has told me on numerous occasions that exact thing.
    She tends to get a little sandy when I make her drive me past it when we get down there for family tish. Also, she's said that families lived there when she was in high school (go blue jays!).

    Re: Ghost Adventures at Villisca, Iowa tonight

    I worked in Creston and talked to a guy who stayed overnight there. He said they left a tape recorder on the kitchen table, went up stairs, came back and found it recording. Listened to it to find a girl singing. Also, they said they saw a lot of floating 'orbs' whatever that means. He seemed convinced it was real.
