Goodby, Pennsylvania Avenue. Hello, St. Cloud Road. Twenty-eight days before they will make it their permanent address, President and Mrs. Reagan moved into their $2.5-million Bel-Air home Friday. They are spending their first Christmas out of the White House since they moved into it on Jan. 20, 1981. "I'm awed and I love it," Reagan said as he drove up to his sprawling new home.

Ronald Reagan would have been 100 years old Sunday, an observation that is slightly ridiculous ? he won't be, of course, because he died in 2004. And yet, it's significant enough to have launched his son Ron's new book, "My Father at 100," and two new documentaries that examine the legend of both the president and his first lady. "Nancy Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime," which airs Sunday night on KOCE, is, not surprisingly, the slighter of the two. Built around an interview of the former first lady conducted by Judy Woodruff, it is short ?

I always appreciate The Times when it gives me something to smile about first thing in the morning. The July 16th paper, which informed me that Michael Reagan had taken it upon himself to give Neil Bush advice, was nifty! I think, however, that Neil Bush would have been better served by taking the advice of a different member of the Reagan family--Nancy . . . "Just say no"! LINDA MOSE Sherman Oaks

No matter what you thought of President Reagan politically, let us all today celebrate his passing if for no other reason than that he and his family have escaped the nightmare of Alzheimer's disease. My grandmother, an incredibly dignified woman, spent the last 10 years of her life suffering the indignities of this awful hell. She knew not who she was, nor did she know us when we visited her to hold her hand with the slimmest of hopes that she might recognize us. The day she died I thanked God that she was finally released from this awful state.

Former President Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy, will be the subjects of a four-hour CBS miniseries that is planned to shoot this summer to air later this year or in early '04 that will focus on their romance and family against the background of history and politics. The project will be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who recently won an Oscar for the film adaptation of "Chicago." The miniseries is scheduled to begin shooting in Montreal and could air as early as November.

Re "Reagan Ranch May Have a Buyer--Us," Capitol Journal, Sept. 15: Has it occurred to George Skelton, Gov. Pete Wilson or the Reagan family that the ranch property could be donated to the state of California? What a wonderful gesture that would be! How public-spirited! Certainly there is plenty of precedent for such a noble and generous act, which would save the federal treasury $5 million, give a huge tax break to the Reagans and further enhance their image as truly patriotic people of the people.

President Reagan abruptly changed his mind today and decided to join Hands Across America on Sunday to help raise millions of dollars for the nation's hungry and homeless. Presidential spokesman Larry Speakes said Reagan told aides this morning that he and his wife, Nancy, after a long family discussion Thursday night, concluded that they should participate in the privately organized effort to raise $50 million by forming a nearly unbroken human chain from Long Beach, Calif., to New York.

Patti (Reagan) Davis is at it again. A month before publication of her mother's memoirs, Davis' second novel, "Deadfall," hits bookstores next week. And like her first, it will probably raise some hackles back home on the Reagan ranch. A kind of political "Daddy Dearest," the spy thriller takes aim at the war in Nicaragua, which she described in an interview this week as "my father's war."

It should be a quiet Thanksgiving for the Reagans this year as they enjoy a traditional holiday dinner at their mountaintop ranch north of here. If top officials have their way, the most excitement will occur when a local aviation company, with special permission from the Secret Service, flies overhead, weather permitting, with a banner that reads: "Happy Thanksgiving Ron and Nancy."

While President Reagan used his weekly radio talk on Saturday for a Christmas message, Sen. Gary Hart (D-Colo.), responding for the Democrats, concentrated on the Iranian arms scandal and reminded the Reagan Administration that "democracy is the enemy of secrecy, and vice versa." Hart, a Democratic presidential hopeful, said that "full disclosures must be made by everyone in this Administration" involved in the affair.
