Larry Manley has achieved what many aspiring actors dream of: His acting debut was a starring role on a national television series. Yet no one will ever see him. Manley's face and voice were disguised as he became "Officer McGruff"--a nationally recognized cartoon symbol--on the ABC sitcom "Webster." He has played the Columbo-like mutt for more than a year and a half, teaching school children in Redondo Beach and surrounding areas how to "take a bite out of crime."

Our story so far: Destiny is swept away by Hunter, and a date is planned. But Hunter is mildly haunted by the locket Destiny wears. Chapter III Mystery Man Hunter's gaze shifted to another photograph in the locket Destiny had dropped, and he stared, transfixed, at the man's face under the cracked glass. He slipped the picture out, turned it over and read the inscription: "To my little Sis. Love, Chad." A shock of recognition washed over him.

It's gloomy and gray, and the rain is coming down in sheets. An ominous crash of low-rumbling thunder resounds outside. An even more ominous crash of indeterminate origin resounds within the Belasco Theater, where technical rehearsals for "Dracula, the Musical" are underway. The atmosphere on this mid-July day is grim and gothic, in keeping with the 1897 Bram Stoker novel on which the musical is based.

Tightfitting clothes and elaborate powdered wigs and hairdos were popular with men and women in the 18th century. Small tables with drawers for combs, brushes and mirrors were made for the bedrooms of the well-to-do. At first, the mirrors were small because it was difficult to make large pieces of glass, but by the 19th century, the dressing table, or vanity, was much like it is today. A table with drawers and shelves held a large mirror.

Elegance doesn't have to be expensive. This incredibly rich-looking holiday centerpiece was put together for less than $30, plus some stuff most people have in their closets and backyards. First, keep the colors simple--here, for instance, we use gold and white. Start with a plain white tablecloth; down the center lay an Abaca tulle runner spun with gold thread from Ikea ($9.98).

For ceramics designer Brenda Holzke, setting the table should be as much fun as getting dressed up. In fact, she likes to think of her oversized, hand-painted dishes in solids and fanciful patterns as a ready-to-wear wardrobe for the dining room. "I provide the basics, and you can mix them the way you like," she says. "It can be fun and funky or more traditional, depending on how you put them together."
