    THE NOTION OF FINDING SOMETHING, an item that's on the small side, at an abode that's famously out-sized may at first give a person pause. But here's the breathe-a-sigh headline from the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose: Kids'll be searching for the colorful orbs in the landmark's Victorian Garden, which is, yes, outside of all of those twisty hallways and staircases to nowhere.
