Valley View by Fereva The little things in life make me ecstatic. Ain't it a kick? A chilly, rainy day concluded by a long soak in a hot bath surrounded by scented bubbles and candles. A classic old movie on TV. A good book and purring cat to curl up at my feet. The breathtaking, Maxfield Parrish view of the San Gabriels when driving east on Knight Way late of an afternoon. "Mom! Mom!" my daughter constantly scolded me, "Stop staring at the mountains and watch the road!"

Home, Sweet Colli-for-nya " By Lauren Oakes Well another summer has come to an end. It was exhilarating and exhausting. As busy as the school year is, at least they are contained for a certain number of hours each day. Our oldest daughter graduated in June. That was a whirlwind. Two days later she and I drove to Texas. We went Highway 40 to avoid the heat in Phoenix. This took us through Arizona; a night in Flagstaff, where I don't think she slept. My fault. I told her about the time I was driving through northern Arizona 30 years ago and wondered why there were dirt clods all over the road.

Young chefs are literally cooking up the stories they read in the Young Cooks and Great Books class at the Roger Barkley Community Center, after school on Tuesdays. At the first session, four inexperienced chefs held back the tears in the kitchen, as they were busy chopping tomatoes, onions, chili peppers and cilantro for fresh salsa. Next they mixed the ingredients for homemade tortillas, patted them out and cooked them, under the direction of Megan Browne, the center's activities director and class instructor.

I have to hold down the commentary today so that I'll have room for some great summer barbecue ideas. These recipes call for pork but the salsas could accompany grilled chicken, halibut or swordfish. A couple weeks ago I was interviewed as an expert on container rose gardening. My patio garden looked great, but shortly afterward I was hit by a really nasty spider mite epidemic. I hope your garden is weathering the heat. This is one of the few times I am thankful for the oak canopy; it helps the plants hold onto their moisture.
