Q: I've been given a collection of old plates by my aunt, who told me in no uncertain terms that they are "works of art and must be displayed prominently." They are beautiful, but I don't know where to put them. Our dining room is small and already full of things I love looking at. Are plates appropriate in a living room?
A: Well, yes ... a thing of beauty can be a joy wherever. Don't fall victim to thinking in cliches, such as:

recently opened in Paramus on Eisenhower Drive (off of Century Road). I was fortunate to have a day off during the week so I called this place to find out if they had any open play time. Lucky for me they had open play time that day from 4-5:30. So I took the kids. We got there about ten to four and they made us wait in the lobby area. They made everyone wait and then at 4 they had all the kids sit in front of this TV screen for an instructional safety video.

When it comes to wearing plus-size clothes, it's all about attitude, says Babe Hope, author of a new guidebook: "Pretty Plus: How to Look Sexy, Sensational and Successful No Matter What You Weigh" (New Horizon Press, $14.95). Since Hope has struggled with weight issues all her life, she has decided to transform her "pity party" into a "pretty party" by writing a book that gives new fashion skills to plus-size women.

As the last snow melts, and first tender shoots work their way up through the dark soil, we humans cannot help but see our handiwork everywhere we look: litter!
Spring showers wash it into our lawns, collect it in the gutters by the roads and consolidate it on storm drains. With no leaves as camouflage, we see the plastic bags caught on bare branches. Beer bottles, tin cans and Styrofoam cups nestle like Easter eggs under shrubs and bushes. Litter is a manmade blight on the American landscape.

Emma Span isn’t your typical baseball fan. A self-proclaimed geeky Yale grad in her late twenties, she might look more at home at a bookstore than a sports bar. But looks can be deceiving. She’s passionate about baseball, watches as much as she can (even once giving blood for free tickets to a Met game, even though she’s a die-hard Yankee fan) and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the sport that would make even Wikipedia blush. And speaking of blushing, she’s also seen Pedro Martinez naked—and not many fans can say that.

Sarah Palin's Novel Life
When Sarah Palin was a little girl, her family crossed the border from Alaska into Canada for the quality health care they couldn't get back home.
This was in the 1960s, when her parents boarded a train from rural, small-town Skagway, Alaska, and headed for capable doctors in Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon.

"Maybe it will take a woman to clean up the House," Nancy Pelosi boasted before the 2006 midterm elections. Looks like those XX chromosomes didn't give her much advantage over the old cleaning crew. The swamp she was supposed to drain is overflowing. And fewer than four years after a sordid sexual predation scandal involving a creepy congressman rocked the Republican Party, a sordid sexual predation scandal involving a creepy congressman is now rocking the Democratic Party.
