Some would call the consistency of Golden Dragon ordinary, but I prefer to think of it as reassuring. This feeling begins the moment you walk into the restaurant, which has been a fixture on Harbor Boulevard near Victoria Street for more than 30 years. One of the owners, an elegantly dressed petite Asian woman, acts as if you are a long-lost cousin and hugs you. That was a first for me, getting hugged by any employee of a restaurant. It actually was a really great tone to set for our meal.

A month ago I offered a few reasons why I garden. Then I asked readers for their motivations to garden. They had lots to say. Here are a few of the responses: Judy, a regular reader from Costa Mesa, wrote: “I’d never really thought about it before. For me it’s the fun of being outdoors with the birds and neighborhood cats, desire for our home to be attractive, control (OK, as much as Mother Nature allows!), learning about new plants and the proper way to care for all plants, seeing a plant bloom that you’d forgotten you had or hadn’t seen bloom for several years and the fun of exploring independent nurseries for new discoveries.

Newport Beach and other communities that felt insulated from the issue will be dragged kicking and screaming to the ballot box sooner rather than later. The deterioration of the discussion has been escalated by the inflammatory messages issued by state Senate candidates Diane Harkey and Tom Harman.

Before there was hip-hop, there was car-hop, a style of service that has all but disappeared, with one happy exception. Every Friday and Saturday night, you can find it at Bob's Big Boy restaurant In Toluca Lake. The place is swell. Teeny boppers and hep cats, squares and swing daddies can all be found there enjoying the same diner fare that Bob's has been dishing out since 1949. The building has been preserved in its original form earning it recognition as a Historical Place of Interest.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Daily Pilot has agreed to republish The Verdict, the ever-popular column written for many years by retired Corona Del Mar jurist and historian Robert Gardner, in exchange for donations to the Surfrider Foundation. This column was originally published in March 1994. I have a suggestion for all those task forces that are trying to put together the so-called Clinton health plan. I think they should look into self help. And just to get them off to a running start, I have a few suggestions for them.
