    We went to clean up one of our yards today and the house across the street blew up yesterday. We normally have to clean up a 40x250' woods along the road, but the fire burned all the leaves for us. I feel bad for the people, I guess the mother and 2 children were home but got out ok. These are real nice $6-800,000 homes, just a strange way to start out the year.

    I've seen a few houses blown-up on the news lately...always seems to be something to do with gas...people messing with the meter?

    let me guess, one of the parents lost their job recently, and the house just magicly blew up. Thank God for house insurance. Bet they get a cheaper house next time.

    I'm outside Madison. No word yet on the cause, but my cousin is on this towns Fire Dept. and said there were 2 explosions. Seems kinda fishy that the husband wasn't home at night.

    He better check the status of their mortgage. That's getting to be a popular way to get out of paying a mortgage that they never should have gotten.

    I hate to say it but if I had to guess on intention I would be at least 50-50 in favor of 'at fault' myself...

    That's just from my own experience with ppls...

    The part I find so astounding isn't the fact that they try, that much I can figure some always will...
    But it's how MANY of them do!
