"At a certain season of our life we are accustomed to consider every spot as the possible site of a house." So begins Chapter 2 of "Walden." For many children, and I suspect many more adults than would let on, that spot would be a place to rise above the world, a home apart but not away from home. "A tranquility that only sitting among the leaves in a living tree can create," is how John Harris puts it in "A Treehouse of Your Own."

The Victoria's Secret Angels are flying across the pond for this year's annual fashion show. Supermodels Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel helped make the announcement Tuesday at London's new Bond Street store, hoping the move from New York could maybe get the attention of a few high-profile Britons and perhaps even royalty. "There are a bunch that we'd like to invite," said the Brazilian Lima, 32 ( via The Cut). "I'd love to see Elton John because I'm a big fanĀ  - I really love him. Hopefully, also - I'd like to invite Prince Harry, if he would like to come.

Three years ago, Harris Enterprises Inc., which owns the Camarillo Daily News and 50% interests in the Simi Valley Enterprise and the Moorpark News-Mirror, put itself up for sale. Members of the founding family of the Hutchinson, Kan.-based company, who own a majority of Harris' stock, wanted to diversify their holdings, and media properties at the time were fetching handsome prices. Harris' suitors included Thomson Newspapers and Ingersoll Publications.

In late October, John Harris, frustrated that the California Horse Racing Board had shrunk to three members, one short of a quorum, sent out a blistering, widely distributed e-mail. "It is ridiculous that [Gov. Gray Davis] can't get appointments made to achieve a quorum," Harris wrote. "My patience with Gray is wearing thin." About two weeks later, the governor appointed Harris to the racing board, restoring the panel to quorum strength.

The long Thanksgiving holiday hadn't even started, but the parking lot at the Harris Ranch Inn & Restaurant was filling with the red-eyed and road-weary. Beverly Lund, a 46-year-old music industry executive, swung in for a bag of fruit on the way from Los Angeles to the Bay Area. Don Dakin, the owner of a San Diego optical manufacturing plant, took a break for a steak during a family trip to a second home in Lake Tahoe. Mel Grable had come even farther.

On the ramrod-straight, 400-mile stretch of Interstate 5 that connects the Bay Area and Los Angeles, little exists to break the tedium of the flat, seemingly endless Central Valley farmland. About midway between the metropolises, however, one sight has given many a speeding urbanite pause: The Harris Ranch feedlot, which appears from afar to be a vast, teeming sea of black, brown and white but on closer inspection (by eye or nose) reveals itself as a motley community of 80,000 or so cattle.

If he lives to be a hundred, John Harris won't forget the still life of compassion captured in the light of a flare on a Christmas Eve long ago: a paratrooper using his body to shield him from death. Harris sees it as though it were yesterday, the man and his weapon merged into one motionless unit, leaning in front of him, ready to take bullets meant for him, mindless of the consequences that combat sacrifices encompass.

John Harris Burt, a retired bishop who advanced a tradition of social activism at Pasadena's All Saints Episcopal Church with his bold support of the civil rights movement when he was rector in the 1960s, died Oct. 20 at his home on Lake Superior outside Marquette, Mich. He was 91. Burt died after a long illness, said his daughter Susan Burt. A friend of the Rev.

John F. HARRIS has done the impossible. He's written a book about Bill Clinton that is insightful, comprehensive and above all reasonable in measuring the former president's strengths and weaknesses, achievements and failures. George Stephanopoulos once said that Clinton ignited so much emotion that he drove people crazy.

His craft has taken Harris from a dusty Hong Kong document warehouse to the glaring arena of live TV. He has examined the Byzantine fiscal records of J.
