How to make miso I grew up on my mother's homemade miso, but it wasn't until this year that I made my own. It's easier than it appears and incredibly delicious. You can find all the ingredients including domestic or Japanese dry soybeans, koji and sea salt ( ara-jio ), at Japanese markets, such as Mitsuwa, Nijiya, Marukai and Granada. To start, rinse the soybeans and soak them overnight in double the amount of water. The next day, combine sea salt and koji . Set aside.

The Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne split rumors that bubbled up over the weekend and on Monday were painting anything but a clear picture of this nearly 31-year-old marriage. Son Jack Osbourne, however, was doing his part to unmuddy the waters. First, the rumors ... Sharon was caught on camera "moving into a new home" recently, according to the Daily Mail, which noted the activity took place just days before "The Talk" host was photographed sans wedding ring at a lunch date with daughter Kelly.

After viewing "Space," I have come to the conclusion that the title is incomplete. It should have been called "Bed-Space." What a crock! Tsk tsk. James E. Vale, La Verne

Gee, Calendar, what a hell of a way to greet the New Year--with an article about good old J.P. Witkin ("Joel-Peter Witkin: Peering Over the Abyss," by Kristine McKenna, Jan. 1). Yes, folks, here he is: The man who manipulates and mutilates human and animal cadavers for use as props in his "art" (see American Photographer magazine, 1986, for info about this). I guess we should be heartened by the news that he's now using living (and volunteering) models. I'm not surprised that he wears a mask in photos.

Ryan Murphy's Film Clips item on "Used People" (Nov. 8) was a sad illustration of word-of-mouth, unresearched reporting. He mentions the channeled entity Lazaris without even getting the name spelled correctly. I have studied the Lazaris material for more than 12 years and found it to be unparalleled in metaphysics. Lazaris is not "a centuries-old entity," as Murphy reports, but a non-physical consciousness that exists outside of time and space--there is no chronology involved.

Muriel Helfenbein of Pasadena is searching for some clear-plastic sweater storage boxes with drawers ; she doesn't like the ones that have lids, because they are difficult to open when stacked on top of each other. Can you help before Helfenbein is really in a sweat, or is it clear that we may never find out whether she's really stacked? Mary Yule of Sierra Madre desperately needs the old brush rollers with boar bristles ; the nylon type scratches the scalp, she claims.

Because he doesn't like wristwatches, Horace Castillo of Los Angeles would like to buy a good crystal quartz pocket watch. Can you help before he develops a tic, or will his out-of-pocket expenses grow, because nobody will give him the time of day? Dan Karmatz of West Los Angeles is looking for skin-colored Mennen's Shave Talc (not bath talc); failing that, he'll settle for any other after-shave talc.

It's one thing to think Steve Irwin a buffoon; after all, Howard Rosenberg is entitled to his opinion ("The Buffoon Hunter," Aug. 12). But when he says Irwin "earns fancy money using animals as props under the pretense of helping them," Rosenberg shows he lacks knowledge of the people he writes about. The Irwins not only own and run the Australia Zoo but also several additional animal conservancies across Australia. Most of the money they earn from the TV shows, merchandise and movies goes back into supporting their work.

Feathers fly, intestines spill out and the afternoon air fills with the sounds of snapping, ripping and chomping as crocodiles munch on half a ton of freshly killed chickens. In a house next to stinking pits thrashing with reptiles, Lo Kie Yoe nurses a bowl full of needle-toothed babies, the latest additions to his North Sumatra crocodile farm. "It's crazy. Here they all are eating up 200,000 rupiah ($110) a day, twice that in the wet season.

What are the must-haves in Southern California potting sheds these days? We asked the folks at Gardener's Supply, the Vermont-based mail-order company. Its most popular tools and gadgets among California consumers are those that support sustainable gardening, spokeswoman Maree Gaetani says. "Our kitchen compost crocks are big -- including the new bamboo one," she says. The Bamboo Crock, a container for kitchen scraps that can be composted, is made from a sustainable material and has a 3 1/3 -quart removable pail and a snug-fitting lid. It measures 11 inches high and 7 3/4 inches in diameter.

Fans affectionately refer to them with names like "recession-fighting machines" and "crackpots." They call themselves "crockpotters" and wax poetic with a fervor normally reserved for religion, politics or love. "My entire family life revolves around the Crock-Pot," says one. "I have not only embraced the Crock-Pot but am making out with it." Welcome to the slow-cooker movement. The new slow-cooker movement. For many, it's all about the convenience.

A mainstay of American kitchens for generations, butter crocks are making a comeback with collectors. Antiques shows featuring the wares of a large number of dealers provide the best bet for finding butter crocks, according to Country Living magazine. But ceramics dealers and shops that specialize in 18th and 19th century antiques will sometimes have a few in stock. Some dealers will keep an eye out for them if they know a customer has a special interest.

One man's prediction of an earthquake along the New Madrid Fault from Illinois to Mississippi will prove to be a total non-event, a geologist said. But many residents waited anxiously for today to come and go, the day New Mexico climatologist Iben Browning said was the most likely for a quake. Skeptics partied to music like "Shake, Rattle and Roll" and ordered Jell-O for dessert so they could watch it wiggle.
