“Ghost Town” is a modest movie, part “Sixth Sense,” part “Heart and Souls,” part “Groundhog Day.” Groundbreaking, it isn’t, but Ricky Gervais is far closer to today’s Everyman than the likes of Bruce Willis, Robert Downey, Jr, or Bill Murray. Gervais, British TV comedy ace of “The Office” and “Extras,” plays Bertram Pincus, a dentist whose existence is as cold and unbending as the steel dental tools on his surgical table.

I?ve been absolutely Olympic Games fixated these past two weeks. I?m certainly not alone because it seems that every conversation I have with people always ends up in Olympic chatting. The Games have been very exciting to watch. I have especially loved the swimming, diving, beach volleyball, and gymnastics. The medal results in all the events have been pretty much straight forward except for gymnastics. It appears that not only are we viewers puzzled by some of the ways the different gymnastic apparatus scores are determined, but also the coaches and athletes are confused by the methods used by the judges.

If you don't happen to have time to tour the entire state of California, we found a place that almost seems like a microcosm of the state. You have your beaches, your surfers, your Redwood forests and, just an hour away, one of the state's largest and most cosmopolitan cities. Give up? Try Santa Cruz. Hugging some of California's most scenic coastline, this city offers a sampling of some of the state's most interesting attractions all in one relatively small area. We were amazed, for example, when we topped off a morning of beach sightseeing with a little seven-mile drive up to the sleepy town of Felton.

Hollywood horror is waiting for you every Friday and Saturday night through Halloween, Oct. 31, at Universal Studios. For thrill-seeking horror buffs, Universal has been turned into a network of scare zones and fright mazes linked together by the terror tram which allows visitors to personalize their itinerary of fear. Three special mazes have been constructed, each featuring the star of a particular horror series — Freddy Krueger of “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” Jason of “Friday the 13th” and the cannibal crunching stylings of the Hewitt family of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” fame — just the thing for those tedious Friday nights.

I was sitting with the family around the kitchen table trying my best to run interference on this crazy, fandangled idea about us going on a skiing trip. I'm thinking, maybe if I run the dishwasher the noise will squelch this nonsensical talk and we can then get on with our day. With ballet and Holy Communion classes, it's not like we don't have enough to do. Well, this skiing idea began to pick up momentum and even the din of the dishwasher could not quell the excitement of Sabine and Simone.

Whether you?re into wildflowers, fascinating geologic history or quaint old mountain villages, the early spring is the perfect time to head for the Anza-Borrego desert area east of San Diego and the interesting attractions nearby. Wildflower season is expected to be better than usual this year because of the heavy Southern California rains. This desert area about 90 miles east of San Diego is known for a colorful wildflower display that usually gets under way in late February as well as many nearby points of interest.

If you’ve driven Interstate 5 just north of Redding, you no doubt have marveled at the beauty of Shasta Lake, with its miles and miles of scenic shoreline — all with the backdrop of Mt. Shasta, one of California’s most recognizable landmarks. And you’ve probably noticed the clusters of houseboats as you cross the bridge over Shasta Lake. We’ve driven that route many times, and each time crossing that bridge, we were reminded that someday we wanted to rent a houseboat on Shasta.
