(Neverland Weekend Update October 3-4, 2009)

We headed out to Neverland today (quite frankly because some fans have complained that we haven’t updated the photo gallery in almost a month)…   🙂

Anyway we took some photos for you. It is amazing that Neverland is still quite an attraction. Fans were out Saturday and Sunday but let me tell you it was really windy and chilly Sunday. Winter is in the air around here. But we took lots of photos.

I want to take a moment and say thanks to the UP Ethonography Class ’09 for inviting me to join their virtual class. (Why does this sound like work?) LOL. Although I truly appreciate their invitation I want them to know that we are more concerned about their health and safety during this cyclone season and wish them safety during the passage of this latest storm. We also hope that they weren’t impacted by the previous storm.

You can see one of the class projects if you follow the UP link on the front page of the site or in the General Gallery.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

There have been inquiries about the high resolution copies of the photos. Anyone wanting a high resolution copy of a photo can simply send an email to wildweezle and we will send it to you promptly. (No charge). The email address is:

Neverland Update August 22, 2009

We decided to go out to Neverland Ranch this weekend to see what impact the announcement that Michael Jackson would be burial in Los Angeles would have on visitors to Neverland. Well it turns out that today wasn’t a good day for making that assessment because something strange happened in Northern Santa Barbara County.

It rained.

Now for those of you who wonder why this is strange well, normally it doesn’t rain in the summer in this part of country. We figured that the amount of visitors would be down considerably because of the rain.

Well on our way out we did see a stream of vehicles coming from the ranch beating the rain. When we got to the ranch there were a few diehard fans braving the raindrops.  We took a few shots but didn’t want to risk damaging the cameras so we split. You will notice that the memorial regalia has been removed from gate along with the Neverland Sign. I’m wondering if that is “the end”. Since it was announced that an agreement had been made with the estate to tour Michael Jackson memorabilia in different states if Neverland is going to be included in the tour. Just wondering.

You may recall that we’ve been battling the huge La Brea wildfire. When you look at the photos for today the skies are overcast and rain is falling. Last week that overcast was literally smoke. This week you see no smoke at all. The rain is going to be a big help to the firemen battling this blaze and it will also help improve the air quality. For the past two weeks all of the communities have been suffering from the heavy smoke and ash.

I’m sure most of you also know that the fire was caused by illegal drug activities (such as growing pot) associated with south of the border drug operations. It turns out that there is a lot of marijuana being cultivated just down the street from us. With the burning of over 87,000 acres and yes some of them pot fields, the rain clearing the air is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on your persuasion. 🙂 Trust me, there are many jokes going around this area about that smoke. One popular one is that most of the folks in this area won’t be able to change jobs for a while because they wouldn’t be able to pass a drug test. Another one is the huge increase in sales of Fiddle Faddle and Diet Rite Cola.

Anyway, although it is good to have this rain, depending on how much we receive could have a dramatic impact on the vineyards. If the rains come too early the crops can be destroyed by fungus. So, not everyone is happy. First the rain gets rid of the smoke that’s kept everyone happy in these parts and then it destroys the vineyards so you can’t make wine. That’s just not fair.

Anyway, if the rain stops we will go out and take some shots and post them tomorrow.

Have a great weekend,

Neverland Update Saturday August 15, 2009

The smoke from the la Brea Fire had a small impact on the visitors to Neverland. It didn’t keep the die-hards out however. We took some fan shots and got the opportunity to photo the writings fans have left behind on the walls at the gate. In the photos what appears to be a cloudy and overcast sky is actually the smoke from the La Brea fire. More updates on Sunday.
