MORE than ever, every one of us needs a vacation. There seems no immediate relief from the litany of daily anxieties, macro and micro, that conspires to keep us eternally jittery -- wars, gas prices, bad coffee. Yet I have found a temporary solution: heat. Really intense, desert heat. Call it nature's tranquilizer. Nobody, not even Type Triple-A personalities, can resist the angst-taming powers of pina-colada sipping in 108-degree shade. I speak from experience. While others were paying top dollar to flee to cool lakes and oceans, I packed up my son, Eli, and six kinds of sunscreen and headed to the Hyatt Grand Champions Resort, Villas & Spa in the desert community of Indian Wells, about 15 miles east of Palm Springs.

The Hyatt Grand Champions Resort in Indian Wells, one of the largest properties listed for sale by the federal Resolution Trust Corp., was sold for $65 million to the Japanese real estate firm Maruko, sources familiar with the sale said Friday. The sale, which closed escrow late Thursday, is a boost for the beleaguered RTC, an agency formed last year to sell assets of financially troubled thrifts. The RTC has been criticized for moving too slowly in selling problem properties.

A $4-million "windmill" nestled in Malibu's verdant Ramirez Canyon. A sprawling equestrian center in Griffith Park. A small office building in Orange built by a defunct thrift whose former owners are now convicted swindlers. These properties are among scores in California that were built, acquired or repossessed by savings and loan associations that went under. On Tuesday, they found their place on the first comprehensive list of real estate put on the auction block by the Resolution Trust Corp.
