Our house is so loud that it's beginning to kill off the landscaping. Shrubs are dying, and there's this ring — almost a solar corona — where the grass is browning around the foundation. Lately, even the spiders are clinging to life, that's how loud our house is. The other day the little guy runs in, slams the door so hard that all the 8-penny nails in the house pop a quarter-inch out of their sockets … baaaam, zip. He is breathless and carrying a lacrosse stick just because.

Who cares about Barry Bonds' 700th home run ball as a souvenir? How about the first blow-dryer used by a major leaguer in a clubhouse? The 1960s-era hair dryer of ex-Yankee Joe Pepitone is on display this month at the Burbank Central Library in an exhibit titled "The Times They Were A-Changin': Baseball in the Age of Aquarius." The proud owner of the blow-dryer is the Baseball Reliquary, a group that takes a whimsical view of baseball and its traditions.

Conspiracy theorists, secret agents and space abductees, take note: Soon you won't need to drive far out into the desert to reach the mysterious Area 51.

Five of the Mercury 7 astronauts, America's first and perhaps most beloved space explorers, returned to their history-making roots Friday to help dedicate the Astronaut Hall of Fame. "We don't sit around getting nostalgic," said Donald (Deke) Slayton, now 66. "We're trying to make things happen for the future." The United States Astronaut Hall of Fame, 13 miles from where the men rocketed into history three decades ago, is a tribute to their exploits.

The Arizona Supreme Court overturned the murder convictions and death sentence of a man who admitted killing two women but said space aliens were in control of him at the time. The ruling last week means that Robert Joe Moody is entitled to a new trial for the 1993 separate robbery-murders of two friends, Michelle Malone, 33, and Patricia Magda, 56.

President Reagan said today that he told Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev at their Geneva summit that they would surely quickly join forces and forget their differences if aliens attacked Earth from another planet. Reagan did not characterize Gorbachev's response. The President reached into the realm of science fiction in an off-the-cuff remark after addressing students at Fallston High School in Maryland about the summit.

Fifteen years to the day after five men orbited the globe in a mechanical embrace in the only joint, manned space venture by the United States and the Soviet Union, four veterans of the historic encounter met in Los Angeles to celebrate the past and ponder the future. All these years later, they are still preaching the same gospel of international cooperation that they have been pushing since an American Apollo spacecraft docked with a Soviet Soyuz far above the Earth.

"Kirk to Enterprise! Come in!' "I believe you will find our communicators inoperable, Captain. According to my tri-corder readings during the beam out to Calpha-Five, we were caught in an ion storm. It appears we are not at the designated coordinates." "That, you green-blooded Vulcan, is obvious! Just where in Hades are we?" "I believe, good Doctor, if my memory of this period serves me correctly, we are standing in a high school classroom in a state called California. Fascinating!"

Californians have grown accustomed to the Japanese. They have built high-rises in downtown Los Angeles, bought Hollywood film studios and started hi-tech businesses in Silicon Valley. But if the 1980s was the decade of the Japanese in California, the 1990s may well belong to the overseas Chinese, who are quietly emerging as the rising Pacific power. Last month, California received the strongest signal to date on just how potent the overseas Chinese are.
