All Atlantic hurricanes, no matter how grand they may become, begin the same. Each starts as a small disturbance in the atmosphere above equatorial Africa. These disturbances, called tropical waves, head west and, if conditions are just right, they increase in size and start spinning. Some develop into tropical depressions, grow into tropical storms and finally evolve into full-blown hurricanes. "The mystery is why does it happen," says JPL researcher Bjorn Lambrigtsen, "There is a constant stream of these tropical waves coming off the coast of Africa, but most don't turn into hurricanes."

After six weeks of gallivanting about to the library, birthday parties, (one human, one dog) Descanso gardens, to visit friends and browse at the Oscar suites, it's time to don our aprons and return to the kitchen. My friends at the Pork Information Bureau sent ham carving instructions along with a host of recipe suggestions for Easter ham, chutneys, sauces and leftovers. If I hope to squeeze everything in, I have only a few inches to share some advice. Last week, a widow was telling me she loves to entertain, but when she has a dinner party, she has to include someone who can carve.

The La Cañada Flintridge Public Works and Traffic Commission debated a proposed cell phone tower on Highland Drive and welcomed a new member at their meeting last week. The commissioners were taking a second look at the cellular tower, and eventually voted 3-2 to bring it back at a later meeting with a redesign. The tower will be on a 50-foot pole, replacing an existing pole one foot east of the proposed location. The pole will have three antennas for Cingular Wireless, mounted 29 feet off the ground, three cabinets on concrete pads and a retaining wall.

Although dancers from African and Middle Eastern countries performed national versions of the ancient dance, it was the Egyptian troupe that captured fairgoers’ attention. Swiveling hips, unhampered by corsets, shocked the Victorian sensibilities of the time and influenced the nation to regard belly dancers as women of loose morals. Every 20 years, another form of belly dancing hits the shores of America.
