The Thanksgiving turkey had barely begun to settle in for most of us, but the opening salvos for Black Edit MediaFriday had already been proclaimed through various media venues: SALE BEGINS @ 4 A.M. TOMORROW! And can you believe it, shoppers were actually queuing up early. I even saw a few of you, hiding behind your designer sunglasses. Since you are planning for the holidays, your questions for the Plant Man included: Q. What kind of plants will produce berries for Christmas?

Steve Kawaratani "The physician can bury his mistakes, but the architect can only advise his clients to plant vines." -- FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT "Tis the last rose of November, left blooming alone ... " -- WITH APOLOGIES TO THOMAS MOORE November's first week has been the month of clearing skies. It's amazing what one can see when the fog and smoke are cleared by a gentle storm. Both Catalina and San Clemente Islands have been clearly visible since last Saturday, as were a number of new story poles; three were so tall that they were actually swaying like palm trees.

"The true gardener brushes over the ground ... to liberate space for some favourite plant." -- Freya Stark "'Tis the last rose of October, left blooming alone ... " -- with apologies to Thomas Moore October is the month for sprucing up your garden in anticipation of the coming holidays; the festivities now seem to begin with Halloween. This will be another year without a pumpkin, another year without much contact with our children. I'll have to ask Catharine if the Christmas tree is staying outdoors this year.

The Thanksgiving turkey had barely begun to digest for most of us last weekend, but the sense of urgency was clearly palpable in Laguna — retailers and restaurateurs hopefully preparing for the holiday season. Even the city and Chamber of Commerce were involved, getting the lights and decorations up early to inspire the citizenry. One can’t really blame anyone for being nervous. We are admittedly still mired in tough times that equate dollar signs to the Yuletide spirit.

Steve Kawaratani "All mankind love a lover." -- RALPH WALDO EMERSON "I have been in love ... This many and many a year." -- ALEXANDER BROME According to Western tradition, the Roman priest Valentine was martyred during the persecution of Christians, in the third century A.D. A Roman feast was Christianized in memory of the saint. During the ensuing millennia, St. Valentine became associated as a patron of lovers. The modern history of the holiday was initially observed with the exchange of romantic greeting cards, called "valentines."

THE GARDEN FANATIC "From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it." -- KATHARINE WHITEHORN "So stick up ivy and the bays, And then restore the heathen ways." -- HENRY VAUGHAN The Thanksgiving turkey had barely begun to digest for most of us, but the opening salvo of our truest commercial holiday had already been proclaimed through various media venues: SALE BEGINS at 6 A.M.

"Voters don't decide issues, they decide who will decide issues." – George F. Will "The fact that a man is to vote forces him to think." – John Jay Chapman When you cast your vote Nov. 7 in the general election, will you be a voter or just a partial voter? All too often, many of us, it seems, enter the voting booth with knowledge of only half the candidates and issues — or less. No matter who or what you vote for, you ought to vote with the whole of yourself.

STEVE KAWARATANI "I am extraordinarily patient provided I get my own way ... " --Margaret Thatcher "Boy, you're going to carry that weight ... " --The Beatles I've been patiently watching the weather for the rain to return ... rather than working in the garden. It's just an excuse to get my own way; eating French fries is much more fun than pulling weeds. Another weekend of angst (as if Thursday evenings aren't tough enough), knowing that I could have spent time in my garden and shed some of the accumulation of holiday excess.
