Wonderful article on apricots I caught by accident while in Irvine on business ("The Quest for 'Cots," June 7). I grew up in the Sacramento Valley on a ranch, picked and cut 'cots. You're right about the flavorless fruit that is around today. We bought two lugs last year just off I-5 at Hahn Road (north of the I-505/I-5 junction), variety unknown. Looked great, even smelled pretty good. But not worth the calories. In the old days (1950s), we had Blenheims and Royals, and I agree on the flavor, even better with a little orchard dirt.

Well, a British newspaper is trying to follow in Paul's suction-cupped steps, using Larry the Donkey for some Olympics predictions. The London Daily Telegraph asks the donkey a question, then a two children each hold out a bucket of food marked with a possible answer.
