My lovely wife and I had a lovely time this weekend in Disneyland. Our plan was to hit the usual stuff if we could, California Screamin’, Space Mountain, Indy etc. But we also wanted to go on a few rides and see some shows that we have done before…

I just heard Dean Florez make a bad joke about the conservative talk radio host Ray Appleton.
Whilst discussing radio coverage of womens sporting events, a senator (not Florez) mentioned that the current host on the station that covers Fresno State womens sporting events has a morning talk show that is degrading to women; The show apparantly talks only about “marrying”, “killing” and dating women. Florez, who I believe was chairing this commitee, jibed “Was this the Ray Appleton show?”.
I happen to like Florez and I listen to Ray Appleton – whom I would describe as on of the most upstanding and respectable radio hosts I know…
So my lovely wife recently took me to the Grand Canyon to recouperate a little.
It was really awesome, and I highly recomend visiting if you ever get the chance.
But be warned, the hikes are pretty deadly this time of year. Even for those of us that mightconsider ourselves pretty fit. The rangers were telling us that this time of year they do 4-5 rescues a day! The altitude (7000 ft) coupled with the summer temperatures (100F at the rim, and 20 degrees warmer in the canyon), means that unless you are prepared and trained it is very easy to come a cropper. Take this ladies story: A woman who had placed 31 in the Boston marathon, died in the canyon in 2004 due to heat exhaustion and dehydration….
Anyway, here as some of the photos of my trip:
I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I
couldn’t find any.
