Re "A love letter to the letter," Opinion, Dec. 29 I so agree with Simon Garfield's article about handwritten letters. I know that something is missing in e-mails. Even if they are detailed and caring, they will never replace a handwritten letter to express words to a friend or loved one. Last summer, while my dear 90-year-old mother was in her last days, I found in the back of her desk a set of letters that my father had written to her while they were apart for a month in the fourth year of their marriage.

Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a powerful tablet with a huge screen rivaling that of laptops. But don't think of it as replacing your laptop anytime soon. The South Korean tech giant has packed the Galaxy Note Pro with an enormous 12.2-inch screen and numerous software features meant to let users perform the same types of tasks that they could on a computer, such as running one app on top of another at the same time. Samsung says it made the tablet so users can be productive and look professional holding it. The tablet features Samsung's stitched faux-leather back cover that the company has begun to use on many of its products.

The kind of wayward interpretations Keith Clark and the Pacific Symphony dished up Tuesday at Segerstrom Hall should be cause for alarm among discerning Orange County music lovers. Granted, Tuesday's program was a late substitution for an originally scheduled concert that would have presented trumpeter Maurice Andre. Still, Andre's cancellation because of illness had been known for more than a week and the substitute program had been scheduled for tonight anyway. And it will be played tonight.

OK, IT'S NOT BUTTER. But if butter is something you're avoiding for health reasons, Le Slim Cow, a butter substitute imported from France, tastes a lot better than any other substitute. It looks a lot like butter and tastes quite a bit like the real thing. It's got half the fat that margarine has, it has less cholesterol, and it's low in sodium. Here are the vital statistics. Ten grams contains 40.1 calories, 0.1 gram of carbohydrate, 4 grams of fat, 6.8 milligrams of cholesterol and .015 milligrams of salt.

Any day now, I expect to see a crowd of substitute teachers marching around Los Angeles Unified School District headquarters, wearing signs that say "I AM PATRENA SHANKLING" and waving lists of dumb things that substitutes have been asked to do. Shankling is the substitute teacher fired by Supt. John Deasy last fall, after he scolded her for giving 12th-grade students what he considered busywork: copying class procedures from a sheet of paper into their composition books. Since a Times profile on Deasy and my column this week on the incident, teachers have rallied to Shankling's defense, describing in emails, letters and online comments the hard life of a substitute.

Hail Mary. Holy hell. On the final play of the final game of one of the most shameful weekends in NFL history, a last-gasp pass from the Seattle Seahawks fell from the sky into the arms of the Green Bay Packers on Monday night. Touchdown, Seattle. Chaos, NFL. PHOTOS: Touchdown or interception? Three weeks of gross incompetence by unqualified replacement officials crystallized in two moments Monday night that pushed the league's integrity to the brink. In one moment, Packers safety M.D. Jennings clearly intercepted a final-play pass while falling upon Seahawks receiver Golden Tate in the end zone, preserving an apparent 12-7 Green Bay win. In the next moment, the replacement officials ruled that Tate had made the catch, and upheld that ruling after replay review, giving the Seahawks a 14-12 victory.

Bollito misto traditionally includes seven different cuts, including calf's head, oxtail and tongue. You can, however, consider any of those elements optional. Every chef uses a slightly different selection of meats for his or her bollito . New York chef Michael White, who spent years in Emilia-Romagna, makes his with beef short ribs and boneless veal breast in a recipe from his book "Classico e Moderno: Essential Italian Cooking. " The late cookbook writer Marcella Hazan, who was from Bologna, made hers with beef brisket, veal breast and tongue.

The Lakers were down to five healthy and eligible players Wednesday night when center Robert Sacre picked up his sixth personal foul, fueling hope for a struggling Cleveland team that it would play the final 31/2 minutes with a man advantage. It was merely a Sacre-tease. An obscure NBA rule requiring each team to have five players on the floor nullified a Cavaliers power play. Sacre, though penalized with a technical foul, was allowed to remain in the game, and the Lakers won, 119-108.

Michigan State will be without middle linebacker Max Bullough against Stanford in the 100th Rose Bowl game, but Spartans defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi is eager to see who steps up in his place. Bullough, a team captain, was suspended for violating unspecified team rules. "I've seen what No. 40 [Bullough] has done for years and I don't remember the last game we had a different [middle linebacker] in there," Narduzzi said Friday. "But I'm anxious to see what someone else can do at that position.

Ethan Brown held up one of his ready-to-eat vegetarian chicken strips and peeled off stringy strands that mimicked the moist meat of the real thing. "That's the beauty. That's absolutely everything," said Brown, founder of Beyond Meat, admiring the filaments of faux chicken at a cafe near the company's El Segundo headquarters. The company gets close to creating that authentic but elusive texture by blasting soy and pea proteins through an alternating cascade of high heat and high pressure in a stainless steel machine.

Question: When I moved to Northridge in 1951, every nursery carried flats of lippia, a cheap, tough, drought-resistant ground cover and lawn substitute. When I ordered it at a nursery, it took months to get, in spite of the fact that it is grown in Northern California, and it was expensive. Do you know why it has disappeared? Florence "Flip" Manne Sun Valley Answer: Florence, you are right -- getting rid of grass is a great goal. Traditional lawns take so many resources -- water, time, money, chemicals -- while contributing so little to the aesthetic of a property.

Sell your oven. Empty your cupboards. There's no need for a mixer or food processor. Keep the fridge for drinks, and maybe the blender. Eating has never been easier. The trick? Bars, bars and more bars. Vegan, chocolate, gluten-free, low-glycemic, raw, sugar-free, nutty, crunchy, gooey, for kids, for weightlifters, familiar old granola bars. Packed with protein, fiber, super-fruits - even some with sugar and fat. Bars for pregnant women, and the YaffBar that's for you and your mutt to share.

Just when the Galaxy found itself on a roll, four of its best players were absent when the club hosted conference rival Colorado on Saturday night. The Galaxy entered the match against the Rapids at StubHub Center having won its last three games, lifting the Galaxy to a tie with Seattle for second place behind Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer's Western Conference. But Galaxy forwards Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan, along with defenseman Omar Gonzalez and goalkeeper Jaime Penedo, all were away on international duty for World Cup-qualifying matches.
