When Earl Schuman joined the 2121 Seniors in Commercials class offered by the city of L.A., he never dreamed he'd get the chance to kiss a cow. But he got to do just that in a TV spot aired by a national dairy organization (see photo). Schuman's teacher, Adrienne Omansky, has helped several seniors win on-camera roles by sending their classroom tapes to local ad agencies (information: [323] 931-1026). In the dairy commercial, Schuman, 83, was teamed up with a much younger female named Elsie.

A Dodgers-Giants pennant fight only intensifies the bad feelings between El Lay and Ess Eff, as the late San Francisco columnist Herb Caen used to call the cities.

Here, for example, are comments by some observers who did not leave their hearts in cable-car land: * "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

JUST so you know, F*art stands for Functional Art, according to owners Steve Cindoyan and Karina Macias. "We pronounce it Eff Art," says Macias, who isn't bothered by alternate pronunciations. "Shopping should be fun, not an intimidating chore." After noting a lack of design destinations in their booming Eagle Rock neighborhood and growing tired of trekking to museum stores, the partners opened their doors as "a gift shop for people who gift themselves."
