* The Emmy-winning actor and environmental activist lives in Malibu and Ridgway, Colo. Food With a Good Vibe: One of the restaurants that I really enjoy for the evening is the Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga Canyon. The atmosphere is really peaceful and beautiful. It has white Christmas lights up all year 'round and outside dining, which is really nice in the summertime. Indoors, they have a fireplace, so it's very cozy and romantic.

The highlight of "The Dean Martin Christmas Show," which was just released on DVD, is a comedy bit with the host dressed in a tux playing an employee at a department store complaint department. He's visited by Bob Newhart, who wants to return a bad toupee. The two try to maintain their composure but can't stop laughing during the sketch. The swinging fun, which aired in 1968, also features Dom DeLuise, Dennis Weaver, a cameo by Bob Hope and plenty of holiday songs with Dino, the Golddiggers and his staff's offspring.

In 10-gallon hats, chamois chaps, snakeskin boots and belt buckles the size of T-bone steaks, they rolled in like tumbleweeds for the grub and the show at Wild Bill's Wild West Dinner Extravaganza in Buena Park. The Saturday night hoedown drew more than 600 duded-out guests at $50 per, raising an estimated $20,000 for the local chapter of the March of Dimes.

One of Los Angeles' largest food banks has closed its doors, leaving scores of charities scrambling to find a new food outlet for their clients. Love Is Feeding Everyone, known as LIFE, was created 16 years ago amid much publicity and fanfare, partly because of the celebrity of its two co-founders, actors Dennis Weaver and Valerie Harper. It was launched with the ambitious goal of salvaging tons of edible but unsalable food that would otherwise have gone to waste.

Like all good cowboys, Dennis Weaver is riding off into the sunset. That's because the TV actor's contract as Great Western Bank's longtime pitchman recently expired--and isn't expected to be renewed. Weaver, 72, the former star of the "McCloud" and "Gunsmoke" television shows, has lulled audiences in commercials for the big Chatsworth-based savings and loan for 14 years.
