When 60 guests shared a festive Christmas dinner at the palatial new home of Ed and Madeleine Landry, there were a few things they didn't find under the tree. Or on the switch plates. Or on the doors, or on the counters, or in the ice machines, or on the gleaming handles of the kitchen's seven ovens, or in the air ducts that snake through the walls of the 11,000-square-foot mountainside manse overlooking Simi Valley.
