Beyond CaliFlorida: A post of ice and fire... and water, too
Written by Jeff Elliott
Independence Day (and no, not the movie) – Firstly, I would like to wish everyone in the States a happy Independence Day, and warn them that:Tweet
1. Fireworks are usually illegal in city limits,
Since we are on the subject, we need to understand that our country is quickly approaching 240 years old, and while she is a tough old bird, she is also quite delicate, needing the right kind of stewardship to help with the maintenance required to keep this country flying. It is determination, vision, and leadership that can help cultivate the seeds to allowing our nation to withstand the slings and arrows that would try to topple her. With that in mind, I would like to take this opportunity to nominate John Lasseter as the next President of the United States. I would also like to nominate Elsa of Arendelle for Vice President.
With this combo, we will have prosperity like the country has never known before, and if anyone tries to mess with us, they will be suddenly wondering why they are stuck in a block of ice. Happy birthday USA! And be safe out there!
Six Flags Great Adventure – Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom should be open for the public on July 4th, just in time to get shot at with fireworks.
Six Flags Great America – This should be a requirement of all inverted roller coasters…the “hair” cam.
Legoland – The chain has just signed an agreement to open a new Legoland park in Nagoya, Japan. I guess their kids are just as bored as our kids are.
Now Hiring – Walt Disney World has its shingle out to add 1,000 employees to their ranks. If you can’t figure out how to work the interwebs well enough to find the hiring page, then you’re probably underqualified for the job.
Lost Parks of Northern California – 1915 Pan-Pacific Exposition – Kris Rowberry is back with another excellent episode of his Lost Parks series.
Star Wars – From Star Wars to Jedi – Sorry, we got a little behind…this should catch us up.
