Poor Fran Harrison hasn't seen a rainbow in years. Come on over to my house on any sunny afternoon and I will show you a rainbow. While watering the lawn I discovered I can "make my own." When the sun is bright I take the hose, turn the water on full force, and with the nozzle on high I make about a 7-foot arch of water over the lawn and presto a rainbow appears! If the day is especially balmy I hook the hose in the branches of an old birch tree, turn on the water, pull up a seat and watch the birds and butterflies fluttering about in the spectacular splendor of my very own rainbow.

Around noon Saturday, a stroll down Trousdale Parkway on USC's campus during the L.A. Times Festival of Books turned up mothers and daughters wearing headbands with balloons shaped like Minnie Mouse's ears, as well as a person inside a Wienerschnitzel hot dog costume who posed for pictures. A few yards away, adults sang the first few lines of a popular show at the Children's Stage: “Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high.…” Before the crowd could continue in chorus, actor LeVar Burton asked whether anyone had seen an episode of "Reading Rainbow," the PBS children's show he once hosted.

Re "Diversity in a gay haven," March 7 The increasing acceptance of gay and lesbian citizens nationwide, while obviously a good thing for all concerned, must inevitably lead to loss - the loss of a feeling of specialness, of "us against the world. " In many ways the internal debates going on in West Hollywood remind me so much of the anxiety and distress that occurred in Compton as the upwardly mobile African-American population moved out into mainstream suburbs and emergent Latinos replaced them.

Frankie and Grandpa Ben huddled under Grandpa's big, black umbrella. They could hear tiny raindrops pitter-pattering above their heads like little cats' feet. Raindrops dripped from Frankie's tennis shoes, as he and Grandpa strolled toward the house. "Watch the puddle!" Grandpa cautioned, walking around the little pool of water. Frankie followed carefully, watching water drops bounce off the puddle and sail into the air like little spaceships. "Where does the rain come from, Grandpa?"

On the afternoon of Nov. 5 after a week of rainy weather, I was standing on a busy mid-town street corning waiting for friends to join me for dinner at a nearby restaurant. More precisely, this corner was at the bottom of a slightly inclined thoroughfare, but, even from this vantage point, I could see an arc of a rainbow in the eastern sky. Since I was a bit early, I decided to get a better view and so I walked up the street, looked up, and was rewarded by the sight of the entire, magnificent rainbow spread across the brightening firmament.

Butterfly in the sky I can fly twice as high ... Children of the '80s, this one is for you: The beloved kids' show "Reading Rainbow" and its host LeVar Burton are the latest PBS icons to get the remix treatment, thanks to the efforts of PBS Digital Studios and the Auto-Tune song maker John D. Boswell, a.k.a. Melody Sheep. PBS Digital Studios started its remixing project in June with its most popular (and I'd argue best) video, "Garden of Your Mind," featuring Fred Rogers (i.e., Mister Rogers)

The West Hollywood City Council has responded to growing criticism over the removal of a rainbow flag atop City Hall by agreeing to a compromise. The rainbow flag - raised above City Hall in June - will stay down. But the city will hang a new flag that incorporates rainbow colors into the city logo, a rough geographic outline of the municipality. Council members agreed to the change at a meeting last week. "This has been a very exciting debate," said Mayor Pro Tem John D'Amico.

The rainbow flag - which was raised above West Hollywood City Hall in June - will stay down. However, the city will hang a new City of West Hollywood flag that incorporates rainbow colors into the city logo, a rough geographic outline of the city. Council members agreed to the change at a meeting Monday night. “This has been a very exciting debate,” said Mayor Pro Tem John D'Amico, who is gay. “I think flying a rainbow flag at City Hall is perhaps not as interesting as flying the City of West Hollywood adopted flag that has the rainbow on it. There's a pedigree there, there's a history.” The rainbow flag was removed in January after an earlier unanimous vote by the council to maintain the city's practice of displaying only the United States, California and city flags on public facilities.

At last, they marched. On Saturday, dozens of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender immigrants marched in the annual Tet parade in Little Saigon. The rainbow flag, a distinctive symbol of gay pride, fluttered alongside emblems of California, the United States and South Vietnam. "We love you," participants yelled at friends, family members and thousands of others lining the parade route in Westminster, many dressed to celebrate the Lunar New Year. "We love you, too," some eager youths responded, whistling with joy. The historic moment followed months of fighting as organizers initially sought to ban LGBT activists from joining one of the community's biggest events.

The rainbow flag atop West Hollywood City Hall has been removed. After months of public debate over the flag -- which was raised above City Hall in June -- city officials last week removed the flag symbolizing gay pride. About 40% of West Hollywood's population identifies as gay or lesbian, according to city surveys. There are rainbow-colored crosswalks at Santa Monica and San Vicente boulevards. And four of the five city council members are gay men. But city council members in November unanimously voted to maintain the city's practice of displaying only the United States, California and city of West Hollywood flags on public facilities.

Gay activists who fought to be included in a long-running lunar new year's parade in Little Saigon said their participation is now in doubt because it appears the event's code of conduct would prevent them for carrying a rainbow flag, an international symbol of gay pride. Organizers of the Tet parade, which attracts political leaders and dignitaries in the Vietnamese American enclave, initially refused to let members of Viet Rainbow of Orange County march, saying the group did not reflect the event's traditional roots.

Brenda Schmitz and her youngest son, Max, then 2 years old, shared a favorite song: "Over the Rainbow. " At the time, Schmitz and her family hadn't seen rain - let alone a rainbow - for five weeks when the wife and mother of four was hospitalized at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines for ovarian cancer. But on the day of her death, in September 2011, a large, bright double rainbow cast across the sky. Her husband, David, said this was the first but certainly not the last time Schmitz would give her family signs that she was watching over them.

Earlier this week we posted one more sign of the American retail recovery, the expansion of the Land of Nod at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. Times photographer Allen J. Schaben's shot of the brick wall at the checkout counter prompted us to ask Land of Nod creative director Danielle Kurtz about her painting process. Kurtz finished the design by herself in 15 hours. Our edited Q&A with Kurtz: You started with a background coat of white? We first had the wall painted a solid, very pale, mint green.

With objects as diverse and mundane as kitchen sponges, steel downspouts, T-shirts and garden hoses, Lynn Aldrich has been crafting whimsical sculptures and installations for more than 20 years. Her current exhibition at Art Center College of Design is a delightfully quixotic retrospective in keeping with the eclectic spirit of her work. Visitors are greeted by a rain of steel downspouts, hanging vertically over the entrance to the galleries. Varying in length, their insides are painted in various shades of blue.

Live like a king, or a captain, with an overnight stay aboard a private yacht. Dockside Boat & Bed rents luxe vessels for a night - or two or three - at Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach. Roomier than most hotel rooms, the boats include galleys, living rooms and sequined reflections from the harbor itself. The tab? Our one-night, two-day stay totaled $275, including $50 for meals. The boats never leave the dock, but the experience is as relaxing as only a night on the water can be. The bed Dockside (Dock 5, Rainbow Harbor; [800]
