I live in Baltimore and last summer traveled to Oregon for a family vacation. My uncle is originally from Portland, so he arranged for our stay in Neskowin, which isn't really a city but more of a community and is just north of Lincoln City. Over the course of our two weeks, the weather was different every day. The view from our home overlooking the beach was just spectacular, whether it was sunny or foggy. This shot is from our balcony and is a wide view of the coast, looking at the monolith Proposal Rock, which is covered with barnacles, mussels, anemones and sea starfish.

This is a special time of year, as expressed so poetically in the lyrics to the haunting song "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess: Summertime, and the livin' is easy Fish are jumpin' And gettin' lodged in the throats of fisherpersons Those lyrics are as true today as when they were first performed way back in a specific year that I plan to look up later. Just this June, according to an Associated Press article sent in by many alert readers, an angler who was angling near Macomb, Ill., had to be rushed to the hospital when a 4-inch bluegill became stuck in his esophagus.

She calls it the "starfish story" and has recounted it to numerous audiences, from financial planners to business schools. It's about a little girl who tosses a washed-up starfish back to the sea to "make a difference." Not the stuff you'd expect at an investment conference, much less from the brains behind a firm that manages $1.8 billion in assets. But Amy Domini, founder and chief executive officer of Domini Social Investments LLC in New York, doesn't think there's a disconnect between making money and changing the world one starfish -- read "company" here -- at a time.

Dan has left the studio. The Great Anchor Hunt is in full swing at CBS Evening News following Dan Rather's departure from the anchor chair Wednesday. The becalming Bob Schieffer will hold the fort down for probably three months -- but then who? CBS president Leslie Moonves has said he wants to reinvent the nightly broadcast with perhaps a team of newscasters rather than with, say, another aging white guy. The names Katie Couric, John Roberts, Jon Stewart, Scott Pelly and Anderson Cooper have surfaced in the last several months.

Some time ago, I installed a screen saver that featured an underwater world. I wanted to get rid of it because instead of an arrow as a mouse pointer, it had a starfish, which makes it difficult to figure out exactly where the mouse should be. I uninstalled the screen saver, but I still have a little diver instead of a standard hourglass symbol, and I still have the starfish. Can you help me? You can pull the plug on that diver and saw off that starfish by using the Control Panel for Mouse.

When Cori Snyder talks about why she started the volunteer program Hands on Baltimore, she tells a story.One day, she says, thousands of starfish washed up on a beach by a village. A little girl from the village saw the starfish and started to throw them back in the water when an older man walked up and asked her, "Why do you bother? You can't make a difference?"So the little girl thought for a minute, picked up a starfish and threw it as far as she could into the sea. Then she turned to the man and said, "I just made a difference to that one."

There is a man in my neighborhood who picks up garbage -- I've seen him.I'll be biking or running, enjoying myself, and as I round a curve, there he'll be, walking, bending and stuffing. He always carries a plastic grocery bag for the collection and he's very serious. When I see him, I feel guilty. Here I am, just playing and he's working to make my play space neat. So I stopped to ask him once, ''Why do you pick up trash?''He looked up briefly, sweat streaking his face, staining his T-shirt.

When George Carlin talked about the "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television," part of the reason he could get away with actually reciting them was that he was making a record. Recording artists can say pretty much anything they want on album, and many use language we would never dream of printing in a daily paper. Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, for instance, is especially fond of some of Carlin's seven words. Unfortunately, that makes it difficult to quote much of what he raps or sings on the group's new album, "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water" (Flip/Interscope 069490759, arriving in stores today)

Several months ago, out of the blue, a company named "Cingular" started sending me bills. I had never heard of Cingular, and I honestly did not know what these bills were for, so I put them in the pile where I keep documents that I intend to scrutinize more carefully later on, after my death. Then I started seeing TV commercials for Cingular, but of course they did not make it clear what Cingular is, because the First Rule of Modern Advertising is: "Never reveal what you are advertising."

Editor's note: A curious girl bridges the distance between two cultures. On an island not too far away and in a time not so long ago lived a secret tribe called the ciguapas. They made their homes underwater in cool blue caves hung with seashells and seaweed. They came out on land to hunt for food only at night because they were so fearful of humans. Luckily, the ciguapas had a special secret that kept them safe from people. Their feet were on backward! When they walked on land, they left footprints going in the opposite direction.
