  Get The Air Moving as Soon As Possible   It is important to get the water damaged materials out of the area of repair right away; preferably within the first 48 hours. Of course if the water damage is great, there will be building materials that need to be removed. It also helps to get the air moving so that the all the moisture dries out. There many different tools to help in the removal of moisture after a water damage problem occurs, one of them is a floor blower.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! And throw into the mix a praying mantis, giant panda, dung beetle, wart hog and anteater. The Sacramento Zoo in Land Park opened Wednesday the long-awaited Conservation Carousel, financed by a loan through U.S. Bank and private donations. If you've always wanted to ride a baby giraffe or poison dart frog, now is your chance. The ride features 32 different animals. Each animal is hand-carved from wood and imported from Ohio. What? We have no artists in Land Park who can carve a pink flamingo out of redwood? Rides cost $2.00. The Sacramento Zoo is open every day from 9 AM to 4 PM. During June and July, extended hours keep the Zoo open on Tuesdays to 7 PM. Proceeds from the ride go to take care of the 140 real animals at the Zoo. General admission is $9 f...

For those of us who grew up in Sacramento, Fairytale Town was a magical place.  The Crooked Mile, the multitude of curling, dizzying and fast slides, the "moat" and pirate ship...there was always so much to do!  And then there are the animals!  Did you know that the 3 Little Pigs, Bo Peeps sheep, the goats of Billy Goats Bluff, a cow and burro all lived there when they weren't working?  Watch out for the geese!  Speaking from personal experience, they will chase you! Fairytale Town opened in 1959...the same year Barbie was introduced and Alaska and Hawaii became the last states to join the United States.  It's funny to realize that gas was 25 cents and a loaf of bread was 20 cents.  We hadn't landed on the moon yet and we were still learning how to type on a typewriter. Eisenhower was P...

It's starting...leaves are turning their brilliant autumn shades.  The new fall days welcome you with a morning chill in the air.  The trees are singing their autumn song with rustling leaves and a whistling wind.  Joggers are starting to spend a little more time warming up before setting out on the running trails.  The soccer players are no longer practicing in the early evenings...it is just a little too dark.  The dew resting in the grass will get your shoes wet when you take your dogs for their run.  Babies are bundled up in their favorite blankets while their parents walk them through the peace of the park.  Welcoming fall in William Land Park just doesn't get any better!

I should have known better...I even blogged that Spiderman was going to be at the Sacramento Zoo on August 2nd.  Then, for some unknown reason, I decided to take my 21 month old grandaughter to Fairytale Town on August 2nd. Mind you, these two attractions share parking opportunities.  Now, who would think that Spiderman would be a huge attraction at the Zoo?  I didn't even know he was still all that popular. Boy, was I wrong! Two lines to go into the zoo stretched halfway down the block all day.  If you enjoy rocking out in your car while waiting to discover there aren't anymore parking places, this was your dream! In all the designers wisdom, they decided to make the access to the main parking lot the only access in or out. Cars park on both sides of the street just to encourage the wa...
