Dear Cynthia: I had a very odd dream the other night. I went on a family vacation (although I don't recall seeing my family members; I just felt their presence). Swimming in the lake was an assortment of miniature sea monster-like fish. They were above and below the water. I was afraid of these "monsters" but was enthralled by their existence and sheer number. There were so many--and so many varieties--of them that I could not understand how they had the space to move.

After a terrific turn in last year's fine indie drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," Logan Lerman is back in franchise-land. This time, the engaging young actor reprises his role as earnest demigod (that is, half human-half god) Percy Jackson in the action-fantasy "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. " Skippable 3-D aside, it's a serviceable, limber follow-up to 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief," again based on a novel from the Greek mythology-inspired adventure series by Rick Riordan.

Admission is free.
If Larry Fukuhara had his way, the Cabrillo Marine Museum's courtyard entrance Saturday would be surrounded by sea monsters. Not that Fukuhara, the program director at the San Pedro museum, is tired of the replicas of a killer whale, hammerhead sharks and deep-sea divers that now greet visitors.

All the world's an art gallery to some folks -- no matter what City Hall says. Just the other day an 18-foot-tall dinner fork was set in concrete in a Pasadena traffic median by conspirators wearing fake Caltrans uniforms and hard hats. Yes, a true fork in the road. The utensil was a 75th birthday present from artist Ken Marshall to his friend Bob Stane, an area coffeehouse/showroom owner. Marshall didn't ask permission to put it there, so Pasadena is pondering whether to allow it to stand for a while or ask Stane to take his gift home.

Snakes may be distantly descended from giant sea monsters that died out with the dinosaurs, researchers from Chicago and Syndey, Australia, report in Nature. The team reexamined the lizard-like fossil of a 97-million-year-old creature called Pachyrhachis problematicus and concluded that it is the most primitive known snake--so primitive that it still has hind legs.

The sports section for Aug. 26 was so devoid of sports that you had to run a story about "Sea Monsters" on the front page. Does this mean there wasn't enough sports news available? Or did T.J. Simers get eaten by a whale? JIM DEUTSCH Hermosa Beach

When Chris Mays, a former TWA pilot, decided that he wanted to start a dinosaur manufacturing plant in Orange County, no one expected that someday 30 million people around the world would see his Gargantuan creations. But today, seven years after Dinamation International began operating, the worldwide interest in Mays' 90-foot Tyrannosaurus Rex, his Triceratops and other fierce, prehistoric creatures is thriving.

Only in Cannes do you overhear, "Sorry, I'm late. I got stuck on this yacht. " By the height of the festival, the azure horizon is studded with floating sea monsters. (Legend has it that Errol Flynn moored his own yacht here in 1949 and demanded that the recreational flotilla leave the dock, lest those boats draw attention away from him.) Fashion royalty Alberta Ferretti and Roberto Cavalli are not so proprietary about the port, since both entertain every year at Cannes on their respective yachts.

The creature in the ocean off Malibu looked mysterious--its head rising and falling and its gaze unwavering as the cold waves surged beneath it. But when Sonja Murania raced from the ocean, quivering and covered with goose bumps, the strange sea serpent was not doing the chasing. The 65-degree water temperature was. "This is not the Caribbean," the Malibu woman shivered. "Of course, you don't see a dragon floating in the middle of the Pacific every day, either."

If you don't believe in sea monsters, consider yourself warned: They are among us. Exhibit A lies in a freezer at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum, soon to go on display as it appeared before being pulled from the ocean: a serpent-like denizen, 15 feet long and sinuous, with a hatchet-shaped head and a silver body adorned by a flowing crimson mane.

This is a great year to give software to children. The children's software industry has done a bang-up job of making available some great titles for the holidays. If giving a software gift, consider loading the software onto the PC before wrapping it. That way, any technical problems can be dealt with before the big gift-giving day. Ever tried to reach tech support on Christmas Day? It isn't pretty. Another tip is to pay attention to whether the software will run on the system used by the child.
