AS a child growing up in East Los Angeles, Eduardo Xol spent long, blissful hours in the family garden, watching his father work his bonsai artistry and his grandmother raise roses with loving devotion. Today, Xol is the landscape artist and designer for ABC's prime-time Sunday hit "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," a fitting cap to what would appear to be a crisply rendered career arc. But the intervening years stretched him incredibly far afield.

I am usually a big fan of "My Favorite Weekend." Reading about Eduardo Xol's weekend [Oct. 20] with his mother was touching and fun, but his listing of the run-of-the-mill "see and be seen" L.A. spots (Koi, Marmont, Hotel Roosevelt, etc.) was flat-out boring.

Cheese founder Nolan Bushnell and Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano -- the bespectacled Rashid, shown below, has earned the right to deliver dismissive comments like a dapper Dr. Evil.

HOUSE No. 85 has just come tumbling down, and the popular, hyper host of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," Ty Pennington, makes a surprising confession about his feelings toward his job: "I don't really know how to explain this thing because the worst part of what we do is a television show."
