In his zeal to oversynonymize, Michael Wilmington gave the ant species a couple of extra legs to stand on by describing Anty, his perceived hero in "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" (June 23), as a "brave arachnid." Wilmington's apology for this gaffe could properly be, "Honey, I blew the review." PAUL M. THIELE Los Angeles

Tiggers might not like honey but collectors apparently do. A sketch by Winnie the Pooh illustrator E.H. Shepard titled "Tiggers Don't Like Honey" fetched $49,770 at auction Tuesday, well above the pre-sale estimate of $24,000 to $32,000. Bonhams auction house said the drawing, of Pooh dipping his paw into a honey pot while Tigger and Piglet look on, was bought by a private collector in Germany for his wife, who had loved the characters as a child. The large oval pencil drawing is an enlarged version of an illustration that appeared in A.A. Milne's children's classic "The House at Pooh Corner."

Rosh Hashanah, starting Sept. 24, is the Jewish New Year and is a happy holiday, full of hope and optimism. The traditional foods--apples, honey, raisins, "first fruits" and round hallah all have a special meaning. They symbolize a new year that will be smooth, sweet and well-rounded. Fish symbolizes immortality. I have included all these foods in a menu that allows for advance preparation, leaving time for attending services, instead of spending too much time in the kitchen.

Shaq arrived on Thursday and Magic hurried back. Vlade's deep in Charlotte smoking Cubans by the pack. Goodbye Lynch and Peeler, your play's as sweet as honey. We'd love to keep you both, but we just don't have the money. SEAN GREGSON Rancho Palos Verdes

After reading James Flanigan articles from Israel, I wonder. The Arabs have the money, Israel has the technology, if they would forget their hate, the region could be a land of milk and honey. CHARLES BALSHAM Studio City

Villains Tavern in downtown L.A. has introduced its new spring cocktail menu featuring fresh options for sunny days. A standout tipple is the lovely Loki created by mixologist Dave Whitton. Cold vodka infused with earthy green tea is tempered with silky-sweet honey peach syrup, tart lemon and a hint of fragrant sage to create a light and refreshing drink that is best consumed after a day spent in the open air. Lucky for you, Villains has one of the most comfortable outdoor patios in L.A., so stopping for a drink doesn't mean going indoors.

Awash in cool whites and low lights, the Hungry Cat is the perfect place to toss back a leisurely after-work cocktail or two. Especially on weekdays, when many of the restaurant's alcohol-laced libations are half price from 3 to 6 p.m., leaving you with more money to slurp down a few succulent oysters from the fantastic raw bar. And although you might feel compelled to drink a crisp, white wine with your bivalve bonanza, there is a seasonal cocktail...

This is the '90s, right? No one drinks anymore, for goodness sake. I mean, who's going to waste good calories on alcohol? Well, maybe some people get a little retro this time of year, fancying themselves a member of the Rat Pack and ordering up one too many sloe gin fizzes. The National Headache Foundation has a few suggestions to ward off what will inevitably follow--that nasty 1950s hangover. Try eating honey on toast before or after a night of drinking.

Pancakes are a natural for breakfast, but what about dinner? Go ahead, indulge yourself. Light and fluffy, these pancakes have that perfect buttermilk tang. But what sets them apart is a touch of olive oil -- rich and fruity, a good olive oil adds wonderful fragrant notes. And chopped dark chocolate adds pure magic to every bite (doesn't chopped dark chocolate add a little magic to just about anything?). Douse the pancakes with a little honey and fresh mint -- or garnish however you'd like -- and dig in. The whole dish comes together in half an hour.
