Common sense dictates that precious little in life comes free. There's advice, especially the unwanted variety, junk mail, tips on stocks and horses and clerical blessings to name a few of the few. Food also is free--sometimes. In Japan, it is possible to supplement one's daily calorie intake on the vast array of edible samples displayed in the food section of any major department store.

The WoMen's Resource Re-entry Center at Pierce College will offer free legal advice beginning Tuesday. Center director Barbara Fish said attorneys have offered their time and expertise to the campus and community members for nearly 15 years. But this year, the center had to limit the number of people at each session to eight. "We didn't limit it in the past, and [the attorney] would be here all night," Fish said. "It just got to be way too long."

Using a home computer to purchase back-to-school clothes is a hassle. (As Chris Gostyla, an editor at the technology and business magazine Red Herring, put it in a recent trade article: "Finding clothing companies that offer significant value to consumers online has been the search for a needle in the haystack.") But the Internet is a source for ideas on what to buy. A trip to the dull but easy-to-navigate www.nystyle.com/, for example, leads to a link into other fashion sites, like www.charm.

The Legal Grind, a Santa Monica coffee shop, is setting itself apart from other Westside java joints by combining two things that make people jittery: lawyers and coffee.

With its foot-stomping Irish music, traditional "fayre" and creamy pints of Guinness stout, the Kilkenny Pub is packed every night--with Germans. That's not surprising, since this Irish pub isn't in Cork or Tipperary; it's in Berlin. It's one of hundreds of Irish-style pubs that in recent years have sprung up outside Eire to offer slow-pulled pints of Guinness stout and "halves" of Harp lager.

T. Berry Brazelton and Penelope Leach, successors to Dr. Benjamin Spock as advisers to a generation of parents, have found a ready--and growing--audience on cable. The pressures on parents now are far greater than they were during Dr. Spock's day, say both experts and Emmy nominees. "It isn't the babies who've changed, it's society," Leach, also a psycholgist, says from Coral Gables, Fla., where she's promoting the paperback release of her book "Children First."
HOME & GARDEN

It's the type of house that first-time buyers such as Jerome Vivona and Michelle O'Steen tend to choose: It's older than they are and needs new paint throughout, along with renovations of the bathroom and kitchen. Money is tight, though, so the engaged couple decided to do much of the work themselves. But before they picked up a hammer or a paintbrush, they went straight to their personal computer, which they say has become their most useful tool for home repairs.
