Between friends

It's surprising (and more than a bit sad) how lit tle time we Better Homes and Gardens magazine editors and designers are able to spend talking to each other. We devote countless hours to discussing story angles, photo plans, copy, and layouts. But we don't have the luxury of talking about what's really important in our lives.

Beat the Birthday Bash Dash

It wouldn't be a birthday party without a few surprises. Like the piƱata that won't break (or that breaks on the first whack); the guests who don't show (or show with siblings in tow); toddlers who love Barney-- then shriek with terror when the $150-per-hour purple dinosaur waddles in the door.

Making Mnemories

As a kid, Bryan Burchers had a hard time remembering the definition of the word "aloof." His dad, Sam, asked him for a word that rhymed.

This silly image helped Bryan remember the word

More Than Just Playthings

Everyone wants a safe car. Finding one seems to get easier when you start playing in the $30,000-and-up price range. Latest evidence: All five 2000 model luxury sedans tested recently by the insurance industry performed well in offset crash tests. The BMW 328i handled the collision well enough to earn the "best pick" label from testers at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. (For details on the BMW, see our August issue.) The Volvo S80 and Cadillac Catera both won "good" ratings. Saab 9-5 and Audi A6 were rated acceptable.

On the rocks

Think of stone as one more way to achieve varied texture in your garden. Different kinds of stone, different looks and feels. Stone can be rough cut, smooth cut, or uncut-- chunky, blocky, rectangular, or irregular. And when you place rocks in your garden-- whether for walls, pavers, or just eye candy-- remember to leave a little room in between to tuck in tiny and not-so-tiny plants, preferably flowering ones.

Remarkable renovation

Hunting for antiques at an estate sale on Mercer Island, Washington, Peggy Watkins discovered that the item she wanted most wasn't something she could take home. It was the 1917-built cottage where the sale was being held. Twelve years later, when the house was put on the market, Peggy and her husband, Jim Fernandez, decided to buy it. They carefully planned a renovation that turned the one-bedroom cottage into a modern 2,700-square-foot home while maintaining the structure's cozy charm.
