In a classic episode of "The Office," Steve Carell's Michael Scott told his underling, played by John Krasinski, "It's never too late for ice cream, Jim. " And if the scene at Creamistry in Irvine on Thursday was any indication, it's never too early either. A pair of friends arrived scouring for dessert at 11 a.m. no less. Ignoring the advice of mothers everywhere, they chortled, lunch could wait. But the rendezvous wasn't meant to be, as evidenced by "Awws" and a particularly loud "Oh, no!"

Andrew Edwards Driving along Pacific Coast Highway in his Lexus convertible, Bob Tucci decided to do something he had not done for more than a decade. "It's so hot that I haven't stopped at this milkshake stand in 11 years," Tucci said after ordering a cold dessert at the Crystal Cove Shake Shack. Tucci, who lives in Aliso Viejo, wasn't the only person who stopped by the coastal snack stand late Thursday afternoon. He was followed by a group that included Costa Mesa resident Ashley Hermans, driving south to visit the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach.

I look forward to checking out Derric and Kim Pollard's new Carvel Ice Cream store in Costa Mesa. However, contrary to what Kim Pollard said, you don't have to be from the East Coast to be familiar with Carvel. As a child in the early '60s, I remember frequent visits to a Carvel store in Santa Ana near my grandparents' house on French Street. There was a miniature delivery car out front. I also recall their folksy TV and radio ads (not real sophisticated by today's standards)

The most difficult decision when visiting Balboa Island is where to buy a Balboa Bar, a delectable ice cream treat named after this charming little slice of Newport Beach. Two ice cream shops, Dad’s and Sugar ‘N’ Spice, sell the generous slab of vanilla ice cream on a stick that’s dipped in chocolate, then smothered with the topping of your choice — crushed Oreos, nuts, chocolate sprinkles or some other sinful pleasure. (Don’t even think about the calories.

On the second-to-last day of summer school in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, chemistry teacher Don Ryan gave his students a treat before their final exam: He let them eat ice cream outside on the blacktop. Ironically, it might have helped them to pass the test. During Newport-Mesa's second summer session, Ryan's students crammed down scientific knowledge like never before, finishing 22 labs in 23 days. On Wednesday, the class took an hour outside to create and enjoy ice cream — and the terms "colloid" and "freezing-point depression" were close at hand.

Last week while sitting on the beach with my grandson watching the waves and enjoying his company, the truth be told, I was sharing our anticipation of enjoying some ice cream. Ice cream is, for me, a staple of parties and hot summer days. It is also the centerpiece of one of the Costa Mesa Senior Center’s important fundraisers — our weekends at the Orange County Marketplace, selling Bob’s Old Fashioned ice cream. Because the Senior Center is fundraising at Bob’s, I interviewed Bob Teller to hear his recollection of why and how he started his business.

When Danish duo Christian Toxboe and Laura Nielsen brought their gelato recipe to the U.S., they wanted to make it different. They wanted to make it nice. Using fresh, organic ingredients, they launched N'ice Cream: Nielsen's Homemade Gelato and Sorbet, a Venice Beach-based dessert and espresso shop. Each morning, 16 flavors are whipped up in-store using a formula that is lower in fat and sugar than traditional ice cream. "We opened on the notion that it is possible to bring a group of kids somewhere that moms don't have to be worried about artificial flavors and sweeteners," Toxboe said.

A Costa Mesa man charged with shooting and killing his ex-wife and her father is set to appear in a Newport Beach courtroom Friday, according to court records. Robert Lehmann, 36, is accused of shooting his ex-wife Emily Ford, a 32-year-old Paularino Elementary School teacher's aide, when she and her father Russell Ford went to pick up her daughter from Lehmann's home May 3. Prosecutors allege that Lehmann was waiting for the two after Emily Ford was awarded full custody over their 7-year-old special needs daughter earlier in the day after a contentious custody battle between the two. Lehmann allegedly sent his daughter he had with Ford away for ice cream with his current wife while he waited armed with a gun, according to the Orange County District Attorney's office.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): A chip on your shoulder may result in the cold shoulder from someone else. When you try to appear gritty, original, progressive or shocking, you might have all the charm and abrasiveness of sandpaper. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Going through the motions can be maddening. Friends with benefits might begin to doubt the value of the reimbursements. You might be more concerned about doing your duty then enriching your life. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

  Last week my little rain gauge mounted on my fence reached its capacity and overflowed. Next time I checked it, water was over the rim again. I have to buy a bigger rain gauge. But not far away a neighbor, an amateur meteorologist, has recorded almost 16 inches of rainfall so far this season. Because our yearly rainfall averages about 13 inches, and we're only a third of the way through the rainy season, we can safely say it is going to be a wet winter. During the early morning following the wettest night of the storm, I managed to weave my way through flooded, rain-soaked streets.
