>Hi Jennine, and welcome.

I Too remmember that mansion by the soccerfield where the May poles would be set up , and sometimes there were these huge fans to blow the limbs of the trees and leaves when they would film episodes of "Dark Shadows".
We had a cooking class in the mansions kitchen It was an awesome place with beautiful copper cook ware dangling over a huge wooden prep table as I remember and there were two huge old gas ovens,
what adventure.
didnt those st, Bernards belong to coach Kelly(Mike Kellys' dad)I kinda remember them hanging around during soccer practise and greeting Mike.
