Jeff Benson A pea-sized green grape drew cross-eyed glances in the produce area at Centennial Farm. It might easily be the most-overlooked first-place winner at the Orange County Fair.

Young Chang It's surprising Glenn Martin doesn't have 59 words for "blue." The surf artist's paintings show water and waves in infinite shades of dark blue, light blue, green blue, purple blue, black blue, pink blue and, of course, baby blue. Friend Michael Ibey, president of the Art Gallery International in Costa Mesa where Martin's work was hung Friday, says a lot of people paint waves. But Martin's make you feel like you're inside. Martin, who has been painting for 20 years, will exhibit more than 100 pieces this weekend.

The recent story about a giant squid brought up memories of a giant octopus I encountered. As a mudflat urchin, I had learned how to catch an octopus at an early age: Just pour salt down a hole in a mudflat that is surrounded with clean shells and out slithers an octopus. We all had baby octopuses in bottles of water at home. During my abalone diving days, I came into contact with larger octopuses with regularity. They were timid, inoffensive creatures with about a 3- to 4-foot span.

DAVID SILVA The first of two parts. Shortly after I entered the eighth grade, my body decided it had enough with being only 5 feet 2. Over the next three months, I grew more than six inches to become taller than all of my friends and most of the kids in my class. I was delighted when this process first began, thinking that if things continued I would soon enter the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest man on Earth. But what I soon realized was that a side effect of this remarkable growth spurt was pain.

Young Chang You know how sometimes you notice the coolest cars on the street? The kind that look so vintage, so museum-piece, so toy-like that you wonder how it even runs and why the owner ventures to be so risky as to actually drive the thing?

Parked, the cars looked like polished and waxed time capsules.
