I love your show and try not to miss any of your shows. I became concerned about you when I hadn't seen any shows for a while and then in the next couple shows you looked like you were not well, similar to your picture with the house being torn down. Then your shows disappeared again and all I could think about was that you were seriously ill. So my question is are you okay? I'm praying for you and your show, I'm so in agreement with saving history!!

show hosts almost never show up on these boards. if you follow Nicole on Facebook, she's well, busy as a bee with 3 or 4 houses wrapping up in the Twin Cities and Detroit, and season 4 should be on the air soon.
what appears to be the pattern with repeats on both DIY and HGTV networks is they strip the old shows (TV talk for running a bunch of them back to back, instead of once a week) between seasons. so if the rerun parade has ended, it should about be time for new season shows. it appears to me that post-production to get the bin full of tapes whipped into TV programs takes 3-4 months for this show. and those of us who took the "before" tour of the first Minneapolis house did so on a drizzly day in Spring.
networks like to have a bank of several weeks of programming, minimum, before they slot the new stuff into the schedule. if nothing else, then they have enough stuff on hand to slice and splice up some promos.This message has been edited. Last edited by: swschrad,

Swschrad, Nicole's in Detroit? I hope she brought some Marines with her. She's venturing into wild territory, especially since the Ch. 9 was filed. There are a lot of angry people in Detroit now.
Seriously, I get a glimpse of her programs when I'm channel surfing but they're usually reruns on houses in your area. I'd be curious to see what she could do with one of the 60K to 80K abandoned buildings, some of which are so dilapidated they're literally crumbling.
And some of these crumblers were once magnificent Victorian Queen Annes. Such a shame.
I do understand the nostalgia for what was once a dynamic city. I worked in Detroit for about 15 years, during which it was definitely preferable to working in the suburbs. There was so much to do - lunch in Greektown or Bricktown, shopping in the RenCen, good clothing stores which have long since become memories, and one of my favorites: Grinnells, with the best collection of sheet music and full scores I've ever found.
The commuter train was a safe and pleasant transit mode, the buses were a close second, and there was a lot of activity in the downtown area.
I remember one morning in December when I arrived quite early and stepped off the bus to be greeted by the soft lights of the annual Christmas tree. There was soooo much activity - it really was an exciting place to work...until it began to decay. And here we are today.
