Yes I did!  :D

Thanks for pointing it out. French Lick (Okay you all!! No HAHA's and HEE HEE's ! I know. It's a funny name) is trying to re-establish itself as a premier resort. They just built some new hotels and restaurants there, and opened a new casino. I wouldn't want to plan an entire vacation in French Lick, but it can be fun for a day or two!  :D
