  • A family in a pickle on a Saturday in the kitchen

    A family in a pickle on a Saturday in the kitchen
    Our house is really more of a hutch than a house. In the overheated L.A. market, it probably wouldn't even fetch $1 million. Not exactly a showplace. But we do the best we can, my wife and I. We've decorated the house with children, some of whom have...

  • Modernizing her Ps and Qs: Calligrapher Molly Suber Thorpe

    A simple class on traditional italic calligraphy, which dates from the Italian Renaissance, ignited Molly Suber Thorpe's love of the handwritten letter. But she's moved on to a fresh, modern lettering style of her own that she admits makes some...
  • Two lovers catch up on their adventure after 11 years

    Two lovers catch up on their adventure after 11 years
    In Valencia, Spain, amid the dense crowd, an American smiles at me. He has greenish-blue eyes, tan hair and a boyish grin that suddenly makes me blush. He walks over and introduces himself: Josh, the firefighter from Montana. We wander the streets of...
  • Backcountry camping with his oldest son, enjoying the all of nothing

    Backcountry camping with his oldest son, enjoying the all of nothing
    I don't feel the need to camp ever again. Love the hiking, the visuals, the air. But the gritty, fire-smoked world of a backcountry bedroom? You can keep it. And tents? I'm so done with tents. Assuming you can even set one up properly, its spindle...

    Why did the monocled cobra slink across the road? To give Los Angeles County animal control officers the slip, of course. It didn't work; the nomadic ophidian is now in residence at the San Diego Zoo. And while the hooded snake sighting and ensuing four-...
  • A man and his manopause

    There are moments, at age 57, when I feel stiff and rusty, like something Picasso welded together. For instance, I ate so many marinated mushrooms the other night that I threw out my back. I also cleaned the garage earlier that day, which probably didn'...

    Let tomatoes ripen indoors to avoid frost damage
    According to the frost/freeze chart on the Home and Garden Information Center website, I'm thinking that if I cover my tomatoes with row cover or something during light freezes, I can have sun-ripened tomatoes into November. Will this work? Fortunately,...
