After Thanksgiving, several friends e-mailed me to ask, "What did you cook for dinner?" I e-mailed back a comprehensive rating sheet, listing all the dishes as well as ambiance features like table linens, place settings and centerpiece. My average was a "B+." If I'd baked a pie, I would have reached an "A," but the vile frozen concoction we endured was the worst pie I've ever eaten. The smooth jelly, inside the cardboard crust, presumably a pecan filling, glinted green in the light.

It never occurs to me to go to a bookshop to purchase a cookbook, unless I am giving one as a gift. Because I read cookbooks like others read novels, I would break my budget and my bookcases if I allowed myself the luxury of impulsive cookbook shopping. Instead, I check out cookbooks from the library, read them and occasionally try a few recipes. It is a clear signal to me, when I am renewing a borrowed cookbook for the third or fourth time, that I have found one that is a keeper.

?Keep it up guys, you?re almost there,? San Marino High School senior Maggie Ho encouraged as four- and- two-legged walkers rounded the bend on the last leg of Saturday?s Wiggle Waggle Walk at the Pasadena Rose Bowl. Ho?s friend and schoolmate Pansy Chu held up a sign that said ?Walk Spot Walk? as Kelly Garcia, 35, and her mother-in-law Bertha Garcia, 57, followed the fast-moving legs of Yorkshire terriers Meeko and Zoe as the dogs led their masters toward the finish line. Despite his enthusiasm at the end of the walk, Kelly Garcia said Meeko needed to be carried a few times during the course of the three-mile walk.

The area in and around the Austin Convention Center resembles a college campus with the undergraduates removed. Serious-looking types pound real-time critiques of Web typography panels into their iPhones. Lines for beer and coffee are ubiquitous and lengthy. Napping conventioneers lie on the grass between sessions, undisturbed by the outdoor concerts that begin in the afternoon and last long into the night. Everyone here has badges, and the first thing people often do when meeting one another is look at that plastic lanyard, determining whether the name or occupation makes the conversation worthwhile.

Letters to the Editor Trying to trace a long-lost friend Hello from the U.K. I’m wondering if you might be able to help me trace Clyde S. Hodder, a friend of my in-laws, Ted and Gwen Kassell, of Yorkshire, U.K. He was last known to be a resident of La Cañada. He attended their wedding in 1944 whilst serving in the US army in the U.K. He would be about 85 now. His last known address was 5071 Westslope Lane (91011), but a recent letter was returned undeliverable.

Lynn Duvall A week ago our baby girl Amy graduated from college. She came home with boxes and boxes and a B.S. in nursing. Around midnight, as Christmas Day ended, I found a sweet message in my email-box from Gretchen on her return to her apartment in the Valley. My daughter Gretchen and her Japanese friend Rui spent the holidays with Amy, Bob and me. Gretchen's thank-you note expressed her pleasure over being a little girl again at home. Rui sent thanks for accepting him into our family circle.

A leased multi-million dollar home on Chevy Chase Drive is at the center of controversy in La Cañada Flintridge as the tenant prepares to open an assisted living facility that serves up to six residents. The tenant, Gail Tucker of Three Sycamores Elegant Assisted Living, already operates a similar facility in a house on Gould Avenue. The new facility would accommodate some elderly La Cañada residents who have been on a waiting list for the past year to move into the Gould Avenue home, Tucker said, adding that five of the six residents are set to move in next week.
