Using MySQL Stored Procedures in Cakephp

2009: Avalon Airshow

We got wet. That is the first thing that springs to mind about the 2009 Avalon Airshow. It was only a few minutes after leaving the car that it started to rain, and for two hours it was either raining or raining harder. Damped spirits...
