I dream I see your image indefinitely imposed upon itself You are seated on the high coral stool Before your mirror still in its first quarter Two fingers on the water wing of your comb And at the same time You are returning from a trip lingering last in the grotto Streaming with sparks You do not know me You are lying on the bed you wake where you fall asleep You wake where you fell asleep or elsewhere You are naked the elderberry still bounces A thousand elderberries buzz above you So light

Question: Is taking Tylenol PM every night bad for you? It helps me go back to sleep when I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. If I don't take it, I lie awake for several hours. Answer: Some people report that diphenhydramine, the sedating antihistamine in Tylenol PM, leaves them groggy in the morning. But if you wake feeling refreshed and not hung over, there's little to worry about. Side effects to watch for include dizziness, confusion and urinary retention.

There's no reason to limit your garden's bounty to fruits and vegetables. Some flowers also are tasty, but don't bite into them unless you know they are edible.

Even in an age of assertiveness, Andrew the Ugly (that's what it says on his business card) stands out. For a dollar, he'll insult the victim of your choice. And not just street-corner, in-your-face insults, but insults with a Monty Python tang or an Olde English flair. Scalding oaths such as, "Go away or I'll unclog my nose at you," or "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries." Or, my favorite, "You're an anal-retentive son of an impotent boil-popper." Andrew, a.k.a.

Two state senators on Thursday called on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to explain its decision to plow under 43 acres of lush wildlife habitat at the Sepulveda Basin without prior notice or coordination with community leaders and environmentalists. Sens. Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles) and Fran Pavley (D-Agoura Hills) asked for details about what led to the agency's declaration in August that its "vegetation management plan" for the area did not require an environmental impact report because it would not significantly disturb wildlife and habitat.
