What's your sign of love?

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, and thoughts are turning to love and other matters of the heart. Wondering if you'll ever find true love? Looking for Mr. or Ms. Right? Why not look to the stars for guidance? The Maryland Chapter of the National Council for Geocosmic Research Astrology Group -- just call it the NCGR -- will try to answer your burning questions by consulting with cosmic forces. Local astrologers Gilbert Navarro, Margie Herskovitz and Mindy Krupp will also give a lecture on "Love in the Nineties."

Admission for a 'Song'

If you've been thinking about checking out the "Songs of My People" exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art, next Sunday would be a good time to do it. In celebration of Black History Month, the BMA will give free admission to the show to Baltimore City residents (with proof of residency). "Songs of My People" features works by 53 photojournalists taken during the summer of 1990 to document the daily life of African-Americans. In addition to the exhibit, the BMA has scheduled a number of free family activities during the day, including storytelling by Jamal Koram; jazz by the Melissa Walker Group, and dancing, chanting and drumming by Shikisha, a trio of South African woman.

* Black History Month Family Day, the Baltimore Museum of Art, Feb. 20, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. No admission for Baltimore City residents; regular admission $5.50, for students and seniors $3.50, ages 7-18, $1.50, children 6 and under free. Tickets for Shikisha must be reserved by calling (410) 235-0100. For other information, call (410) 396-7100.

Presidential vino

In honor of George Washington's birthday (now shifted to that pseudo-holiday called Presidents Day), Liganore Winecellars in Mount Airy is holding "George's Extravagant Weekend" -- a three-day wine festival featuring spirits that George Washington and other wealthy colonists enjoyed. Indeed, the winery folks say they used Martha Washington's own recipe to make their version of Hydromel, a honey wine that's made with a touch of ginger. Liganore claims to be the only winery in the country that produces Hydromel. Visitors to the winery can also sample several fruit wines and tour Liganore's cellars -- weather permitting -- to learn more about the winemaking process.


"George's Extravagant Weekend," Linganore Winecellars, 13601 Glissans Mill Road, Mount Airy, Feb. 19, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Feb. 20, noon to 6 p.m., and Feb. 21, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission and parking are free. Call (410) 795-6432.
