SPICED-PECAN rack of lamb, roasted pork loin with baked apples, Maine lobster ravioli. These dishes and more are on the menu for those who participate in that other great Thanksgiving tradition: eating out. More than 1 in 10 Americans dine out for the holiday, according to the National Restaurant Assn. But calling around to every restaurant in town to see which of your favorites (or the places you've always wanted to try) are open for Thanksgiving sounds like about as much fun as shelling favas.

Chris Reece, a 52-year-old woman who contracted the AIDS virus after receiving a blood transfusion in 1981, is fighting for her life. So is her roommate--Margaret, a 94-year-old preparing for colon surgery. The two women live at Country Villa South, a pastel-shaded, 87-bed nursing home in Palms. There, in a 30-bed special-care unit, the elderly and patients with AIDS coexist, side by side. An unusual mix? Perhaps.
