Diamond Valley Lake, a massive drinking-water reservoir in Riverside County heralded as one of the best spots in the nation for bass fishing, is set to open Friday at first light.

Six of us decided to spend the night in Hemet after attending a matinee of "Ramona" at the Ramona Bowl. We had made reservations at the Quality Inn and were pleasantly surprised by the motel experience. The managers were accommodating and service-oriented, the rooms were spotlessly clean, the entire property was beautifully maintained and included a pool and spa area. Such a great value: less than $90 a night, which included breakfast, bottles of water and free Wi-Fi. Quality Inn,1201 W. Florida Ave., Hemet; (951)

Pistachios, actually a relative of the mango and the cashew, are native to the Middle East.
