Christmas not complete without film of a burning Yule log playing on your TV? The annual holiday tradition is back this year, but with a few modern variations. The annual Yule log film began in 1966 when New York station WPIX first aired a three-hour film of logs burning in a fireplace on Christmas Eve. Ratings were surprisingly good, so the next year the film was re-aired, and then re-aired again. "The Yule Log" airing became a WPIX tradition in New York, where many apartment dwellers had no fireplace of their own, but eventually ended in 1989.

My husband and I read your July 14 article on plasma TVs ["What Channel Has the Renoir?"]. Deborah Needleman's comment was a bit off-putting and elitist: "The one trend I can't embrace is hanging TVs over the fireplace." Has Ms. Needleman considered that there are households where the only viable place for a large screen is over the fireplace? Do we have our plasma over our living room fireplace? You bet! We make no apologies for it. Our walls are covered with bookshelves filled with books and artwork.

It was early morning. Cool and damp. I was fanning a turf fire in a fireplace that had been kitchen stove and central heating before the Irish cottage, where my wife, our twin teen-age daughters and I were staying, had been modernized. Suddenly there came a heavy knocking on the sturdy wooden front door. Glancing out the window I saw an elderly man who I supposed to be a motorist in trouble and seeking a telephone in this barren region, where the next phone may be 10 miles away. Edging through a closet-sized foyer bulging with coats and dirty Wellingtons, I pulled the door open.

Q. I was recently frustrated in painting a bedroom. I was careful, but after the paint dried I found that I had missed a number of spots. After I put the furniture back in place, I found even more. Before I paint another room, I want to find out if there's a trick that professionals use to make sure they don't have to keep touching up a job. N.Y. Anaheim A.

MY husband and I applauded your July 14 article, "What Channel Has The Renoir?" and Deborah Needleman's on-target salvo at the tacky placement of a plasma TV above the fireplace. We've jokingly referred to the practice as one aspect of the emerging style of "Early American Ugly" -- a victory of high tech over good taste -- though another reader [Letters, July 21] obviously feels the need to justify placing their TV above the fireplace by claiming how important it is in their lives. Hey guys, it's tacky.
REAL ESTATE
April 13, 2008 | Ann Brenoff, Times Staff Writer
This richly elegant estate is a standout among Montecito's historic homes. The Monterey Colonial was built in the early 1930s by David Gray Jr., part of a philanthropic family that bestowed much upon the Santa Barbara area. One of the neatest features is a tower, built in 1924 as a water tower for the senior Grays' neighboring estate -- now the Brooks Institute -- and which later served as an art studio for Nancy Gray, David Jr.'s wife.
