Lisa Gonzalez ducked under a tent used to catch bugs in a Glendale backyard and reached her arm into a small bottle at the tip of the trap. She pulled out what looked like a clump of dirt. As the insect expert began to unravel the bundle, dozens of bug carcasses spewed into her hand as she picked through a crumpled-up spider web. Spiders often set up camp in the 30 bug-catching tents the Natural History Museum has erected throughout Los Angeles, Glendale and Burbank for a three-year project studying insects in the urban environment.

"Curious George," the long-awaited film version of Hans A. and Margaret Rey's near-perfect books, is totally charming and refreshingly different from most animated movie offerings. There is no smart-alecky best friend, no jokes about flatulence, no double-entendres for the adults, no frenetic, bulgy-eyed action. But sadly, this is precisely why the film has a limited audience. Parents and their pre-kindergarten-aged children will adore it for reasons mentioned below. Teenagers might like it for the Jack Johnson music.

It's hard to take a place seriously that bills itself as “the hoppiest place on Earth.” But when it comes to keeping my preteen daughters happy, entertained and out of prison, I'll take anything seriously. I am all about high culture and stuff like that. So a few weeks ago, I decided to introduce them and a couple of their friends to some of the more highfalutin' sites near us. But since we're on the restricted list at most of the traditional museums - who knew the caveman diorama at the Natural History Museum wasn't scratch-and-sniff?
