Bob Ortiz surveyed the convention hall and shook his head. Spread across an area the size of 13 football fields at the Anaheim Convention Center on Sunday were the bicycling industry's hippest, most innovative--and most expensive--offerings of shorts, sunglasses, racks and two-wheelers. It was the opening hours of a three-day trade exposition which one industry insider described as the "super bowl of the cycling trade shows." Ortiz, owner of a Bakersfield bike shop, was overwhelmed.

It's turkey time again, and the American family will soon be sitting down to its annual Thanksgiving feast and thinking about all the things for which it has to be thankful. In my family we start by thanking each other for the culinary contributions: sweet potato casserole, creamed onions, pumpkin pie, or whatever a relative has contributed to the gourmet potluck. After that, the occasion gets more solemn as we start giving thanks for the blessings we've enjoyed this past year.

This season, women will have many chances to put their best leg forward--stockingwise, that is. Brightest on the scene are textured, opaque tights, all in a dazzling rainbow of colors: reds, golds, greens, silvers and bright blues. Brand names high on the seasonal stockings--DKNY, Donna Karan and Hue--offer hosiery in micro matte. Stockings have a lengthy and textured past.

J.B. Nethercutt makes his money beautifying women. He spends it beautifying cars. The 87-year-old chemist's business is Merle Norman Cosmetics, the company his aunt Merle founded in Los Angeles in 1931 and that Nethercutt joined in 1932. He subsequently bought out the other shareholders and grew the business into one of the nation's most successful independent beauty products empires.
