For this simple art activity, your child will actually draw on sandpaper and with adult assistance transfer the drawing onto a piece of paper. The texture of the sandpaper will create a beautiful picture made up of tiny dots. It's especially fun for kids because their artwork will resemble pointillism, a painting technique used by post-impressionist painter Georges Seurat. He used dots of colors instead of brush strokes in his paintings.Here's how to do sandpaper art:Using crayons, draw a picture on a piece of fine-grain sandpaper.

DURING THE languid days of August, people seek thrills. Some sail in front of freighters, some swim near hungry sharks, some parachute onto national monuments. As for me, I have recently discovered the joy of pole painting. As the name suggests, pole painting consists of using an adjustable extension pole to apply paint to hard-to-reach surfaces. But the pole-painting experience is much more rich and varied than this simple explanation. There is, for example, the accompanying pleasure of pole sanding - roughing up surfaces with high-flying sandpaper - and the pure bliss that comes from pole edging, artfully painting pinnacle nooks and crannies.

Orioles manager Johnny Oates accused Athletics reliever Kelly Downs of scuffing baseballs with sandpaper or another foreign substance during last night's 12-9 Oakland win at Camden Yards.Oates came out of the dugout in the fifth inning and asked the umpiring crew to check Downs' glove for evidence, but none was found.At the end of the inning, as Downs returned to the Oakland dugout, a television camera appeared to capture the right-hander making a motion that resembled placing an object inside his shirt.

TOKYO -- Some tasks simply cannot be automated -- even in Japan.In a bonded warehouse in the port of Yokohama's customs area, dozens of housewives sit at rows of desks, armed with coarse sandpaper practicing a peculiar skill: rubbing out the most explicit parts of pictures in magazines like Playboy or Penthouse.Following marked copies provided by supervisors, each woman scratches away the pubic hair and exposed genital areas from the photos on one page. Then she passes the magazine to the next woman, who scratches a patch or two from another page.

Tim Leary wasn't talking yesterday, which figures, because, first of all, what was he going to say, and, secondly, it's not polite to talk with your mouth full.Especially when it's full of sandpaper, meaning, of course, that Leary could bite and file his nails simultaneously.You've heard of a scratchy throat? Leary had a scratchy tongue, teeth and epiglottis Sunday. No wonder. A national ESPN audience saw him stick a wad of sandpaper -- did it come with baseball cards? -- into his mouth to avoid being searched by an umpire.

Around the house* Keep holiday gift wrap in good condition from year to year. Store rolls of wrapping paper upright in a garment bag or purchase a long box from a florist.* Remove tea and coffee stains from tablecloths. Rinse clotwith cold water and rub salt into the stain until it disappears. Rinse and air dry.* Spray kitchen curtains with a fabric protector. Curtains thahang directly over a sink are particularly vulnerable to splashes and spills.* Open stubborn jars. A piece of sandpaper will provide a googrip for lids that won't budge.

Dave Phillips is an umpire, not a dentist, which was why he stopped short of putting his hand in the mouth of New York Yankees pitcher Tim Leary.Phillips, chief of the umpiring crew working last night's Orioles-Yankees game, responded to manager Johnny Oates' charge that Leary was scuffing baseballs with sandpaper and thereby throwing illegal pitches."

SAN FRANCISCO -- It's a bit of a shock the first time a car talks to you. So when my rental ordered a right turn, the surprise carried me straight through the intersection.But it didn't take long to get used to a car that not only talked, but knew exactly where we were, where we were going and how to get there. That's because we were riding in one of Hertz's cars equipped with the $7-a-day Neverlost system. Avis calls its identical units Guidestar.For me, the unit, a small terminal between the front seats, stirred up a real conflict of emotions.

Rust is evil -- almost everyone in America thinks so. That is one reason battling it can be so uplifting.These days, finding such widespread agreement on what is evil is rare. Just this week for example, I read that even though turncoat spy Aldrich E. Ames was regularly drunk, indiscreet, lazy and inefficient, his bosses at the Central Intelligence Agency considered such work habits normal. So, instead of getting fired for bad behavior, Ames got promoted.Living in a such a confused world, I feel the need for some certainty.
