It's such a fabulous place!

They sell all sorts of fabulous treats and stuff, so I love going there. I'm going to a really fabulous food and wine event at the beginning of September that will be held there, which I'm so excited about. I go to this festival every year, but last year I had to be the DD, so I could barely drink. This year I'll be able to booze it up to my hearts content, since there's no need to drive. Hee hee.
Yay! It sounds fabulous. You do have a lot of good berries up there in your neck of the woods. I take it berries are a fruit you do like? We had a huge blackberry bush/vine... whatever it is, it goes everywhere! in our backyard but we never picked them as fast as we should and so many would go to waste. My husband finally cut it down because he thought we didn't want it. Luckily it's all growing back, so this time I promise to go pick them when they're ready!

Yes, I love berries! In the last few years I've grown to like strawberries and blueberries, although in moderation (give me raspberries and blackberries ANY day!). I'm definitely more of a savoury person, so I prefer veggies. Or salty junk food. LOL.

I grew up with blackberries growing like weeds in our backyard too. I picked about a bazillion of them when I was visiting my family recently, although I didn't take any of them home with me.


Mmm... did someone say wine?! I'm definitely a wine-whore. Haha.

I was never real big on blueberries, but I've recently developed a new appreciation of them. I like the tarter berries too... do you have boysenberries? OMG those are my favorite. When i was a kid we would drive up to Knott's Berry Farm, and I do mean it was a berry farm in those days... it was NOT the amusement park it turned into!!! The only rides were a old western train ride that actually got robbed by actors with a wild west shootout It was a real train too that ran through the park, not a "ride". And some neat old time cars that kids could actually drive that weren't on a track or anything so it was awesome. ANYWAY I digress. In those days it really was a berry farm where you bought pies and jams and went to the restaurant that made the best homemade fried chicken and boysenberry pies. We always took home an extra pie. It's still my favorite berry ever, very tart.

And I just made my self really homesick for the olden days.

Yeah, we have boysenberries. I've had them a few times. I'm not super fond of them, but they're not terrible. *glowing endorsement*

Aww, I LOVED going to Knotts Berry Farm when I was a kid! We'd come down to California every year for our spring break, and we'd often go there. It obviously wasn't as old timey back then, but it's probably been almost 20 years since I was last there. They had some good rides, and I remember these really great lollipops that were about as big as my face. Nostalgia, ftw!

I'm sure it was still cool when you went, we liked it as we grew up too, but it did slowly turn more and more into a Disneyland competitor, instead of a quaint little old west park/berry farm. Oh they had panning for gold at a river too! When it was REALLY quaint would have been I guess like in the 60's when I was a little kid.
I haven't been back in years either, maybe like 30 years or more. I wonder if there's anything left of the berry farm aspect. I suppose I will go some day just to check it out.

It was definitely comparable to Disneyland, and if I'm remembering correctly, I liked KBF more, because it had scarier roller coasters and better rides.

It would be great to go back to both places again someday, though. It's been SO long since I've been to CA. We had a layover in San Francisco a few years ago on our way back home from Hawaii, so we rented a car and drove out to Fisherman's Wharf, but I don't really count that, as it was just for a couple of hours.

My computer froze for about the last hour and a half and it took all this time to come back. I hate that.

Thora I went to Fisherman's Wharf for about an hour or so too when I went to the u2 show in Oakland. Didn't spend nearly enough time as I'd like to, must go back!

You just know that it´s been a good trip when first thing you do when you wake up is to check on net how the game ended which you were watching in person last night

Couldn't we just cut Larry right out of that thing? He's souring the party with his failure to smile.

Still going guh about the other two, though.

We need some sullen Mullen though...he's wreaking havoc in EYKIW thanks to some bit about the album being "not quite finished" so the typical response over there is


Personally I think "not finished" means "final mixing" and not "still recording".

Maybe Bono is still waiting for God to walk through the door. Mwhahaha.
