A funny thing happened this week on Ray Turner's lifelong journey toward professional anonymity. He got famous. Turner is a processes engineer at Hughes Aircraft Co. in Fullerton. Let's just say they don't make TV movies out of jobs like that. He's been there since 1969, and it's his job to make sure that Hughes products meet military specifications. Highly competent, yes, but nobody confused Turner with one of the best and brightest Ph.D.s or high-tech whiz kids.

Floorboards that are badly damaged can be fixed by removing the old section of flooring and replacing it. You can remove most stains from wood floors without sanding off the finish. First, try commercial furniture cleaners. If these don't work, pour some cigarette lighter fluid onto a clean, soft cloth and rub the stains.
Despite the carnival rides, comedy acts and other festivities intended to amuse Ventura County Fair visitors, some fair-goers on Wednesday couldn't help but grimace. In one of the highlights of the fair's opening day, about a dozen children and eight adults sucked partially diluted lemon-juice concentrate from baby bottles in the annual lemon-juice drinking contests.
Crush some garlic and add a dash of cayenne pepper. Brew with the juice of six grapefruit. Bombard with positive thoughts--this, like, being Southern California. And, oh yes, let someone tuck you into bed with tender, loving care. This concoction was among the nearly 200 responses sent in by readers who shared their best cures for wintertime colds and flu.

This Fourth of July leave the super-hot grill duty to the sturdy member of your family who goes in for that whole bubbling, dripping meat scene. You're more of an ice-cold beverage kind of person. Especially if the drink in question has a bit of a kick. Plus, serving pre-dinner cocktails makes you the hero of any party. But when you're working out of a home kitchen that isn't yours, it's classy to keep it simple. There will be enough happening on the stove without you trying to cook up lavender-honey simple syrup.  In searching for some quality cocktail recipes that are delicious enough to satisfy a cocktail connoisseur while being straightforward enough to please everyone, I stumbled across a nifty little cookbook called "Happy Hour at Home" by Barbara Scott-Goodman.
