    Sorta unrealated note but still a Rancho thing, Farrells Ice Cream Parlor is coming to Rancho Cucamonga. Pretty sure it was mentioned here a week or two ago or maybe it was a small item in your column.

    [Farrell’s should be opening soon, but I haven’t been by to check. That would be in the old Macaroni Grill location on Foothill. — DA]

    The correct answer is “Ghostbusters!!” What did I win?

    And thanks for the earworm.

    Farrells is having a hiring event this Tue Wed and Thur from 2:00 to 7:00 each day. It should open sometime next month. This info was in Bulletin yesterday. If the opening at Mission Viejo is a pre-cursor then lines will be VERY long to get in. We waited over 2 hours to get in but it was worth it though I would not every time. No they do not take reservations (unless you book a party).

    Last Friday, I was at the Verizon store which is next door to the vacated Macaroni Grill building. I looked inside the empty building to hopefully see some Farrells decor, but it looks like they are just getting started on the remodel. They still had plenty of exposed studs and plumbing. Maybe they’ll make their anticipated opening date, and hopefully the lines will be shorter than the one I was in for the iPhone!

    For another unrelated note, Hobby Lobby looks like it’s almost ready to open in the old Mervyn’s building. They have been putting in the store fixtures and are stocking the shelves with merchandise. Nice to see a couple of vacated buildings being filled for new business!

    Who you gonna call for this house? Looks more like Terminix or Raid would help, than dialing 555-2368.

    Did you know that Ray Bradbury has a Halloween Tree dedicated to him at Disneyland? It is in Frontierland across from the shooting gallery, and it is spectacular at night.

    If you go on YouTube and search for this topic, you’ll find a two-part dedication ceremony for his tree. And if you decide to go see it in person, I suggest you wear your heaviest shin guards to protect you from the multitude of strollers and their oblivious pushers. (Believe me, those kids in the strollers are the ones getting the E-Ticket ride!)

    [I did not know that. I’ll have to look it up online; last time I was at Disneyland was 1989. — DA]

    A house of interest is on the corner of Spyglass and Greenbriar. The “Greeenbriar Cemetery” is chock full of lights, animatronics, sounds effects, smoke, and little kids are too afraid to knock on the door. I watched kids cry on the sidewalk and kids run away when mere inches away from ringing the doorbell. The coffin with the trapped, crying, bellowing man, rapping at the coffin’s door to get out, really gets the kids just as they reach the doorstep. I asked the owner what he does for Christmas and he replied, “just a few lights.”

    [Ha! — DA]
