The night was waiting to become history. Monika Pajerova felt a surge of hope as she looked out over the crowd. There were thousands of them! The flickering candles they held illuminated their young faces, and in their smiles, Monika was certain she saw joy. "I thought that something--I didn't know what, but something--was beginning right then," the 23-year-old philosophy student recalled. It turned out to be a revolution.

The first time Wolfgang Puck went to the Hollywood Bowl, a friend asked him to bring a salmon en croute. "I made a big one--usually they're for six," he says. "This one was for 16. When he arrived at the Bowl, he paraded the salmon all over the place--he had to show everyone. And he let each person taste a little bit of the puff pastry. Then he sat down and ate so much of the salmon he got sick. "I don't make salmon en croute very often anymore," Puck says.

Dear Street Smart: I thought you might be able to refer me to the group that protects handicapped parking spaces at markets, shopping malls, etc. I know of a person who hangs an expired red handicapped parking sign on the mirror just to avoid parking a few slots away. Lazy, cunning and disrespectful. That's the type that should be cited--and not just warned by the state Department of Motor Vehicles. Can you get me the contact to those folks who canvass parking areas?

This time of year almost everybody's got some sort of a picnic to pack for. Some are off to the Hollywood Bowl; others just want a lazy afternoon in the park. And while it might be nice to whip up a basket of food and impress your friends, it might be even nicer to have somebody else do all the work. Keep in mind that most places require at least 24 hours advance notice--and remember to pack a corkscrew. The rest is up to them. Bristol Farms, 1570 Rosecrans Ave., Manhattan Beach. (213) 643-5229.

In a subdued voice, a sonar analyst with a 14-year career of exemplary service testified Monday that he got "a little bit lazy" and broke several safety rules, depriving the captain of the submarine Greeneville of information that could have averted the deadly collision with a Japanese fishing vessel.

So we're lying in the front yard, awaiting the first cold snap of fall, which will turn the grass cool and make the leaves on the trees shimmer and come to life. And us as well. "Maybe we should plant a tree," I say, nodding to a bare spot near the driveway. "Nah," says the boy, lying back with a football under his head, the way men do when they think great thoughts. "Let's just sit here." It's still 90 degrees here on this September afternoon, the cool breezes of autumn a good six weeks away.

QUESTION: Every time you recommend home sellers sign only a 90-day listing I feel sorry for you because, although you are right, I know how my fellow realtors criticize you because they want long six-month listings. The next time some poor seller writes you about how they are stuck on a six-month listing with a lazy realtor, why don't you suggest a listing referral to another agent?

Enthused after a tour of Vista del Lago, one may be more appreciative of the vastness of Pyramid Lake. Rustic picnic sites, campgrounds and coves--some only reachable by boat--are reminiscent of days at summer camp and have names to intrigue both children and adults: Chumash Island, Bear Trap, Lost Mine and Spanish Point. Vaquero Beach, just below the visitors center, is one of two main recreation areas at Pyramid. It offers a boat ramp, a beach, picnic tables and fishing sites.

Capt. Eddy Hazelman looks out over the wheel of the paddle steamer Melbourne and talks about Australia's Murray River with a fond, faraway look in his eyes. She's a shallow one, he says. And with a passable channel only four feet deep in some places and few navigational aids, "We have to know every inch of the bottom like the back of our hands." With much of his life spent on the Murray, Capt.

Researchers have found a way to screen infants for lazy eye at a time when they're too young to look at charts or read. That's important because early diagnosis of the disorder can avert the vision loss and learning problems that often go undetected until a child reaches school age. The technique, devised by researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia, relies upon multiple images recorded on videotape.
