LAX was pretty much my other home when I was flying for QANTAS.

I visited Griffith Park many times during those years.

To be there to see Adele perform would have been awesome.
But the producers "embellished" the starry backdrop for the broadcast. Crux does not rise above the horizon in Los Angeles, but here we see it twice...in western sky....
at the same time? WTF? (didn't have time to record the feed...so I grabbed my i-phone to document this amazing sky)

Ah! The magic of television.

True story:

At the base of Griffith Park there is a mini live steam engine club (of whom none other than Walt Disney was a member) who have open days where families and children can ride on the tiny steam trains. Unfortunately on one open day a child rocked his ride-on carriage too much and derailed the tiny train.

An excitable club member dialled "911" and stated to the operator that there was a "train wreck at Griffith Park!!! ".

Ambulance, fire and police (and media helicopters) were promptly scrambled, as, after all, there is an Amtrack line (read: big real trains) that also skirts Griffith Park.

To be fair, after the entire and substantial response team arrived, to find absolutely no train-wreck carnage and despite some embarrassment, the paramedics did bandage a chubby child's finger.

And it did make the LA TV broadcast news that night....albeit with a smile
