A MEMORABLE PLACE A mission on the Riviera By James H. Bready You can have a guidebook, speak the language, know the very street number and still be baffled. Abroad, the best help may be a friendly local stranger. Last year, my wife, Mary, and I went to Menton, on the French Riviera. Royalty used to winter there. Now Menton draws summer vacationers, too. My quest was to trace an uncle and aunt, George and Fedora Bready, a New York architect and a concert recitalist. On retirement in the mid-1920s, they had joined the international colony -- the Romanov generals, British barristers, Belgian gentry and others who had congregated there for reasons of health or politics.

A Menton tulip is the prima ballerina of its family, its lush, waxy petals the color of a ballet slipper. It grows waist high and its stem resembles a performer's long limbs. And when it covers the banks of a pond filled with swans, its pink reflection dances on the water, creating an almost impressionist illusion.Of all the stunning varieties of tulips growing in Holland's Keukenhof Garden last spring, the statuesque Menton stole my heart. But it had lots of competition. Like a Dutch version of the Garden of Eden, Keukenhof boasts a cliche-defying display of premium tulips, along with select azaleas, hyacinths and other blooms, which are planted amid 80 acres of lush greenery every year.

The scrubinis are aware of what's going on and they're working up routines worthy of the stupid pet tricks on the David Letterman show.Overall, though, the network has been doing a fine job, mainly because it has transported viewers from arena to arena without the usual lengthy and vacant studio gabfests.
