How is it we have to confuse ourselves so much with additional area codes and overlays within those areas, when many cities in Europe and Japan have merely added one single digit (and often the same digit) to existing numbers to handle the problem of demand for more telephone numbers? It is a lot easier to remember to just add the same number to everyone's old number than to try and figure out what new and unknown three-digit area code has been invented.

The Star of India's new main royal sail was dedicated Friday morning. The sail measures nearly 700 square feet and is made of a synthetic sailcloth that should last about four times as long as the original cotton sails, said Paul Kettenburg, president of the Maritime Museum board of trustees. It took sail maker Robert Henderson 3 1/2 weeks to make the sail, which cost $3,200. The money was donated by Robert Sharp, a past president of the Maritime Museum board.

"LAST September, our family -- six adult children and their children, 19 people in all -- spent a week at Coffee Creek Ranch in Northern California. This dude ranch has activities for all ages: a heated pool, a spa, horseback rides, badminton, volleyball, archery ranges, a weight room and a children's playroom with games and toys. Hiking trips can be planned. The cost is reasonable and the staff attentive."

RE "A True Giving Tree" [Nov. 24]: Lovely article about lovely avocado trees. I grew up under a Fuerte, though my father did finally cut it down because he couldn't keep up with the fruit. Fortunately, that was after I was grown and gone. One word of caution. Personally, I wouldn't ever let anyone climb an avocado. Along with that of the papaya, the wood is quite brittle and given to sudden limb shedding. The same goes for letting children play underneath one. As to a swing ... ? Gack!
