    Hopefully it will be a bit cooler up there! At least you'll get a chance to spend a bit of time with your mom and dad! That will be nice!

    We'll keep the home fires burning while you're gone! Hope it won't take to long before you're back!

    Hello friends I am here. Have not been for a long time, but now my words are in this space.

    I hope you all are well. Quick! Best 5 Disneyland places to sit down! Or not. Talk about whatever you like. How about them.....birds. Making noise and such.

    The past two days have been spent starting up a water project that was built in 1997 and has sat idle until now. It consists of 5 wells and a booster station. The wells are around 150' deep, and each one produces about 2000 gallons per minute. They feed into a large tank, and the booster pumps push the water about 40 miles to Reno.

    If all 5 wells and all 4 booster pumps are running at the same time, the electricity will cost around $550 per hour, or nearly $400,000 per month.

    And you thought your bill was high......

    Lol.
    Pumps are pretty efficient mechanical devices but moving lots of heavy stuff does take a lot of energy. Remember that's 8 tons lifted 150 feet per minute. And being pushed a long distance imagine trying to get a ton to move forward, it's like pushing a car in neutral.

    thanks for keeping Pengy a little company.

    I like the benches near the fountain in front of the NOS train station. That really sums it up for me. I don't think I sit down very often now that I'm thinking about it.

    Hello Stranger!!! Glad you could join us again!

    Um... sitting places. I'm all about the sitting places. Tiki Room is a fav! Speaking of birds! And when its hot I like to sit inside the Opera House. Or any shady bench on main street to watch the people go by!

    I on the other hand being old and slow, do a lot of sitting and people watching when I'm there. At least... I did when I had an AP and had the luxury of just sitting. Now that my visits will probably be once a year I might feel the need to squeeze in more...

    Tiki Room is the best, also, of course, Hungry Bear lower level.

    Haunted Mansion is nothing but sitting for most of it, and they oblige you by moving the vehicle slowly so you can see things while relaxing! Even better.

    I go with the kids all the time, and they don't want to stop and sit very often.

    On my solo days I will sit a good bit. I prefer shade. I prefer natural shade, that of a tree rather than building.

    Along with Pirates and the occasional cruise on Small World. I like full circles on the Disneyland Rail Road.

    I forgot about the lower level of the Hungry Bear... yes, very relaxing to sit and watch the ducks and the river!

    They do need a lot more shade of any kind... but more trees, esp. in DCA would be nice. Eventually the trees in DCA will be bigger and provide a lot more shade!

    With the pruning and replanting of trees in DL it's gotten sunnier. Both parks will get shadier, but do I have to wait a decade?

    re: RCMC # 133 The Road Goes On Forever And The Party Never Ends

    Imagine this. Back in the day when I worked at the park weekends during the school year, and was going to college, sometimes I'd come in on a Wednesday during the off season to pick up my paycheck. I'd bring a couple of books with me and head for the lower level of Hungry Bear. Great place to study.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Maybe not.... maybe they are fast growing trees? Just trying to be optimistic!

    Hey Barry! Yeah, I can see how that would be a good place to focus!

    Especially back then when we had an actual off season, and 10,000 or less per day during the week was commonplace. On the weekends, I worked a lot of the private parties where after the park closed its normal hours, closing at maybe 7pm on weekends, they'd rent the place out to Bank of America and such.
