Anyone older than 18 might want to sit down for this. Remember avocado green and harvest gold, the colors that permeated the '60s and early '70s? They're back! If you're old enough to vote, you're old enough to remember how, like some primordial ooze, they took over living-room carpets, sofas and armchairs, kitchen counters, major appliances, toasters, blenders, telephones and all manner of housewares ad nauseam. These days, hardly anyone will admit to having liked this putrid palette, but back then, it looked appropriately earthy.

Cholesterol-free and sodium-free, avocados are a natural for a healthy lifestyle. They're nutrient-dense in dietary fiber, potassium, and Vitamins C, E, B6, and folate. And they're so versatile you can add them to just about anything, from salads to salsa. According to a recent government report, Dietary Guidelines 2000, avocados contribute to a healthy diet because, like olives, they are high in monounsaturated fat, the type shown to help lower blood cholesterol. The report, developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services, was designed to help Americans select eating patterns that meet nutritional requirements, promote health, and reduce chronic-disease risks.

Call it ecologically correct. Call it environmentally sensitive. But, whatever you do, don't call it avocado. Red might be the emotionally hot hue on the color wheel, but green is the shade that's heating up interior design this season. "There are so many greens," said Barbara Winfield, author of The Complete Book of Home Details. "I'm even seeing avocado green nowadays, though it's not being called that and, in truth, is not the exact color we remember from the '70s. " Until recently, Winfield explained, green had a somewhat negative association.

"Fruit sushi. You mean rice with fruit?" she asked. "I mean rice, fruit and seafood," I replied. In their bid to be different, sushi chefs will put out such experiments. At Misso in Center City, Alex Long tucks kiwi in with asparagus, avocado and yellowtail in his Area 51 roll. Margaret Kuo's angel roll includes julienned green apple with white seaweed. At Wild Ginger, the pan-Asian BYOB in Justa Farm Shopping Center in Huntingdon Valley, the color angel roll is a riot of salty and sweet flavors as banana and eel meld in soybean paper, topped with caviar.

I SAW AN ad the other day pushing bacon as an ideal Valentine's Day gift, and I had to laugh. It's like saying, "Here, sweetheart, I want you to die sooner!" OK, I know this holiday is not about eating "right. " It's about something bigger, and that something is love. Love and chocolate. Dark chocolate is the treat that loves you back. Healthwise, you can have your chocolate cake and eat it, too, especially if you mix it with - don't laugh - fruits and veggies. It's not a new idea.

Philadelphia and San Diego may have some things in common - they're both large cities, with even larger cities about 100 miles to their north - but this year they won't share the Mummers. Seems that after the Southern Californians' initial love-fest with the Mummers in the early 1980s, the cultural clash proved too much to overcome. "The interest just wasn't there anymore," said Joe Crescenzo, a Philadelphia expatriate who helped organize the first San Diego Mummers Parade in 1982.

Maybe this year's load of Paleo-titled cookbooks is too close to my desk, but when I saw this recipe in The New Cast-Iron Cookbook , I thought it could be served without its accompanying pasta, making it almost paleo, save for the butter.
