I read today that the owner of the Angels is considering moving his franchise. As a Dodger fan, may I suggest that he move up I-5 to Chavez Ravine? Everyone will be happy. Dodger fans will be rid of Frank McClown -- who should be making balloon animals at Boston Bowl wearing a big red nose with gigantic red shoes.

Some calls to the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line stand out. Two examples: A plea for help from a nurse who arrived at a dinner party and found the assembly too intoxicated to remember how long the Thanksgiving turkey had been in the oven, and the plaintive appeal two weeks before Thanksgiving from a recently divorced man who was planning to cook his first holiday meal for his children and wanted it to be perfect. In contrast with food websites such as FoodNetwork.com, which expects about 25 million visitors in November, AllRecipes.

QUESTION: I had clipped an article a while back on refurbishing old stoves. I have an O'Keefe & Merritt that needs some work but I cannot locate the clipping. Could you provide me with a listing of repair or refurbishing businesses? CAROLINE MARTINEZ Los Angeles ANSWER: The article you read might have been the profile on Ventura-based old-stove expert, Jack Santoro and his refurbishing business, JES Enterprises, that appeared in The Times on April 12, 1999.
