Sam and Ruth Kirkby have been married for 55 years. Instead of sending flowers or love notes, though, they exchange fossils, geodes and gems. And in an even more unusual show of love, 28 years ago they solidified their bond by establishing the Jurupa Mountains Cultural Center in Riverside, where they still are teaching others respect and responsibility for the Earth.

Until August, the stucco dinosaurs near Cabazon were the only prehistoric behemoths that roamed the dusty earth along Southern California's desert highways and lured gawkers. Now, an iron giant stalks the dry, boulder-strewn hills of Riverside County: the Jurupa Mammoth. The 25-foot-tall beast stands halfway up a hill next to the Pomona Freeway just west of Rubidoux, peering at passing traffic. Recently, a red Santa hat appeared on its head, lashed in place with a yellow rope.

Is there a worldwide conspiracy against Mondays by the museum "industry"? After a nostalgic and delightful weekend at the rejuvenated Riverside Mission Inn, my wife and I decided to stay over for another day. Monday was hot and smoggy, so indoors was a must. The AAA tour book recommended the California Museum of Photography, Riverside Municipal Museum, Jurupa Mountains Cultural Center and March Field Museum. All closed. In nearby Redlands: Lincoln Memorial Shrine, San Bernardino County Museum, San Bernardino Assistencia.

The Postal Service is sticking to the name brontosaurus for one of the creatures depicted on its new dinosaur stamps, even though it is actually an apatosaurus, a long-necked dinosaur that wandered North America 150 million years ago. "The stamp is simply wrong," said Rep. George E. Brown Jr. (D-Colton). O. C. Marsh, who dug up two similar fossil skeletons in the 1800s, named the first fossil apatosaurus and the second brontosaurus.

Question: Is this a carob bean? (The reader had included a pod in the envelope along with the note.) If so, how do you use it? I've read where you can chew on them, like beef jerky. How do you make powder out of them? We have lots of them going to waste. Answer: At Sego Nursery in North Hollywood, we confirmed the pod was indeed a carob bean and obtained a few more from the owner's tree to use for photography. A variety of other sources, including David Lasgren of the L.A.

Mary Burns was running door to door setting up neighborhood meetings to block the construction of a garbage-burning plant in Ontario in 1986 when a woman asked how long she'd been an activist. The fiery organizer had been called many things, but never that. "I was shocked," said the Mira Loma resident, 60. "I've been organizing my entire life, ever since I was a Girl Scout. But an activist?"

Dinosaurs hold an eternal fascination for children and adults. Most of us never get to know much about these ancient creatures, other than what we see in the movies. That's especially true in Southern California, because most of the area was covered by ocean during the dinosaurs' 150-million-year reign. Our most ancient animals are Ice Age mammals such as saber-toothed tigers and mammoths that lived here as recently as 10,000 years ago, long after the dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago.
