Today was spent at Six Flags - hurricane Harbour.  This is a nice exciting water park.  The original plan had us spending the day at Zuma Beach, but when I was checking the forecast (waiting for the June Gloom to lift), I noticed the water temperature was 62 F or 17 C and that just did not sound li ke fun.  So we canned that plan and went for the water park.  We found that if we bought our tickets and parking online, we saved some money. The day was very fun, all of the kids had tons of fun.

Of course, in the middle of the day we heard about the death of Michael Jackson.  My Aunt Reina's iPhone went crazy.  Word swept throught the park like wildfire.  I will not say too much about this event.  I am sure you all have had your fill of it.

  I will only say that, according to the Los Angeles County sherrif (I think), they handle several hundred deaths everyday.  I think the attention given to MJ is a bit crass, and it is a bit disturbing how the news of the death of Farrah Facett was pushed off the news so fast.  I also think it is a bit thoughtless that no-one thinks about the non-celebrities.  Perhaps this does not make sense since they are not celebrities so why should we think about them.  Still, I could not help but think that on this day, many husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, and probably some children passed away as well.  And so I thought of them, instead of MJ.

So enough of that.  The parks was great, no kids (of mine) were lost for anyth of time and the line ups were agreeably short.   After the park, we went to a great restaurant for dinner, and then relaxed at home with a nice bottle of wine.

Tommorow we are going back to Diamy serond Bar to visit Craig, Gladys and the new baby again.
