    Yep, we'll be there.

    Other Disney names as well, from what I saw on the flyer that they mailed us.

    See you there!

          Or as the locals call it "Sacto".

            Is this haunted signature
            actually
            stretching?


            Or is it your imagination, hmm?

                Correct!

                They call it Sacratomato...

                Muhuhahaha

                  ...and "Cowtown".

                  The sidewalks still roll up at 10PM downtown except in front of a very, very few clubs and resturants. Even the coffee shops close early.

                  Sacramento, Sacratomato, Tomatotown, Cowtown, That Stop on the Way to Tahoe...whatever - we are almost as progressive as Fresno, and will never be a "World-Class" city like San Francisco. Our City and County leadership don't have the intellectual horsepower to even keep what they have solvent, let alone think about the future.

                  As previously stated - the State Fair at Cal Expo is usually sweltering. Eat enough of those deep-fried snickers, drink enough of those $6 beers, ride enough of those questionably maintained rides on the midway, and the sweltering heat will be the least of your worries.

                    Oh, and Sacatomato...

                    Though I'd never use it.

                    I'm sure Armstrong & Getty could come up with some more.

                      Our favorite here in actual Cowtown (vacaville) is just plain Sac

                        Then Sac it is!


                        We try to avoid the heat by meandering through the various halls and buildings with the A/C during the peak of the heat, then do the outside stuff when it is cooler.

                        We've been pretty lucky the past few years. Not too hot during the day at all. We usually go during the first responders day.

                        Enjoy!

                          i was at the press event the night before the opening of the fair. The place where the Disney folks (Dave Smith, Voice of Cinderella, Model of Tinkerbell, and a few others) are going to be set up is going to be limited in space. It's very cramped, but it looks alright. Nice train display and the Nike Transformers are really cool. I'll be out there Sunday (tomorrow) and on the 26th.

                          BURP!

                            When I went on the 18th Larry Scholl was supposed to be there. They had him as a Disney animator, but I had never heard of him. Supposedly he was doing drawings of people as toys.

                            On the "other" subject, it's always been Sacramento or Sacratomato to me. Vacaville is the only cowtown for me
