Hello from rainy Rome! I have stayed in my convent accommodations four extra nights, and I'm glad I did. There is so much to see in Rome that my original plan of four nights ? with two days partially in transit ? was an example of misguided optimism. I visited the Roman Forum and the Colosseum shortly after arriving in Rome. If you visit Rome, don't buy your ticket to the Colosseum at the Colosseum. Visit the nearby Palatine Hill first ? as I did ? where the ticket price of 11 euros includes admission to the Colosseum.

Newport Beach business owner Ira Israel doesn't have a shop where he can show off his Venetian glass beads, so events like the Gem Faire are vital to his operation. Much of Israel's business is conducted over the Internet. He said he brings his products to about 25 traveling shows per year. The Gem Faire, a three-day bead, jewelry and crystal showcase that visited the Orange County Fairgrounds Friday, Saturday and Sunday, is one of his favorite events.

Rain, rain go away. That's the plea from Southern Californians this month. It looks like we could have a very wet El Nino winter with lots of time indoors, so why not get prepared by learning a new warm and cozy hobby like knitting?

All knitting is just different combinations of two easy stitches.

It was there that she saw what women were going through: little to no education, lack of health care, extreme poverty. But there was one thing they had: paper beads they made by hand and turned into jewelry. Unfortunately, there wasn't a market for them to sell the items. Dovel started thinking. She brought home a box of jewelry and showed it to friends and family who were amazed.

Fifth- and sixth-grade students at Newport Coast Elementary school this week set up a booth on their playground to sell Mardi Gras-style necklaces and raised more than $1,000 to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. Ingrid Ohanian's students started on Monday and sold every day during recess. Two or three students at a time manned the booth while others made and posted fliers around campus to drum up business. By the end of three days, the students had sold all the necklaces.
