It's sacrilegious to even think that there is good news in the ongoing severe drought plaguing the Golden State. Yet, apparently, there's a bit of good in this bad situation of historic proportions. More appropriately perhaps, just a bit of silver lining.

6 ways homeowners can reduce landscape water

The lawn in the front and back yards of Tom and Rita Canales home in Manteca was, at one time, their pride and joy.

If you've "outgrown" theme parks - or at least think you have - consider a stop by Six Flags Discovery Kingdom next time you're in the San Francisco Bay area.
