La Cañada Flintridge resident Janet McNiff, 69, was at a spring check-up when her doctor suggested some dietary changes, and referred her to "Living Beyond Organic," by Christina Avaness.

We spent a couple of hours wandering Honolulu, east of Ocean View, and came away mightily pleased. The day was sunny with a cool breeze, perfect for dawdling, browsing and chatting with vendors. Many of the vendors are retirement age folk who are enjoying a second career working one or two days a week at swap meets, farmers' markets, craft fairs and the like — minus business suits and the corporate grind.
