Everyday in Costa Mesa has been jammed pack with exciting adventures and this is mainly due to our fantastic hosts "Saint" Helen and Chuck "Organised" Scrantom and their family. From parties, to fine dining dinners, to going out on the boat, to shopping, to lunches, to baking us cookies, to having breakfast ready every morning for us, lunch & dinner on the table, to the infamous 5pm Cocktail Hour (which happens everyday and is awesome), to playing golf, to having lunch with the girls, to washing our clothes and basically just looking after us..this trip wouldnt be nearly as wonderful without them.

Having been corrupted by the American fast paced technologically advanced way of life Will and I have succumbed to the pressure and bought ourselves a laptop. A MAC...oh it is very sleek and sexy and although i cant use a mac gosh we look good sitting in Starbucks pretending to do work when in fact we are just trying to find the "on" button. We (mainly Will) are currently editing together our video of everything that we have done so far and hopefully will have it uploaded for you to see our adventures..sit tight..i know you're excited

Unfortunately like all good things our Scrantom time must come to an end, however, the Scrantoms have not seen the last of us, and i do remember Helen suggesting we stay for as long as we like, Lucy offering her house & convincing us to come back in summer and Steve offering his house to us for a week whilst he is away. Little do they know i intend to take everyone of them up on their offer as this place is to good to be true. We love it and we love the Scrantoms. God Bless America....

Still to come..Sam and Will take on Hollywood, visit Universal Studios, stalk some celebs and road trip up to San Francisco..

Cool Sam,
When I first went to Disneyland in 1984 (after waiting since 1956!) we arrived all eager just like you and it was closed. I looked for a gun shop but they were out of M-60 machine guns so my plan to hijack the guard and make him take me on all the rides came to nothing.

Chevy Chase later made a movie about it...
