San Juan Hills Country Club in San Juan Capistrano provides a happy medium for budget-conscious golfers in South Orange County. Sure it may not offer ocean views or even cheaper green fees such as San Clemente, but you won't have to go to extremes--like 4 a.m. trips to the pro shop--to secure tee times. San Juan Hills' green fees also are more affordable than San Clemente's other public course, Shorecliffs.

Wake up! See the roses, even after work! Spring hath sprung, and so hath the clock--forward, by an hour. Perhaps during the winter months you went straight from the office to the gym. Or home to veg out in front of the TV. Or to happy hour. If you're a nine-to-fiver, wherever you went was probably indoors or involved artificial light--it was dark outside. Now, thanks to daylight saving time, the sun doesn't set until around 7:30 p.m. Locally, that's cause for some to celebrate.

For 25 years, San Juan Creek Country Club has been on the brink of fulfilling its promise of making the course as spectacular as its setting. But nettling problems, such as recurring fungus attacks on the greens, have haunted the place, and no one has ever been able to figure out why play bogs down at certain holes no matter how much distance there is between you and the group ahead when you tee off on the 364-yard No. 1.

Those of us who are both serious and sensitive about our cooking have surely been tempted at one time or another to deny that our favorite chili recipe has anything at all to do with chili, to insist rather that it is actually an obscure dish we discovered in Ulan Bator shortly after the last war.
