Th’ Gaussling and family have dropped down to a fault zone near the 35th parallel for some much needed vacation time. The happiest place on earth is located here. It is a confederation of attractions called Disneyland and California Adventure. By day we stand in line and by night we watch a fireworks display featuring incendiary flares in brilliant pastel. Clever monkeys, these Disney pyros. A delay time of 1-2 seconds between flare and concussion gives an indication of the proximity of the conflagration to our room. All is well.
