For a girl who can't make decisions easily, picking a location for your wedding is extremely hard -- especially when you and your fiancé are transplants. I am from Massachusetts, as are most of my family members and friends. Andrew says he's "from the USA" because it is easier than explaining he grew up in Connecticut, California and Texas and has always summered on Cape Cod. Most of his family lives in the northeast. We have college friends along the entire east coast. There is no central location for everyone.

Deflating experience. Sidney Ponson was nowhere to be seen in Aruba on Friday night, though it's important to point out that I'm referring to the popular nightspot on Fort Lauderdale beach and not the Caribbean island that brought you Sir Sidney and fellow former Orioles Eugene Kingsale, Calvin Maduro and Radhames Dykhoff. It's a fun place. If you're waiting for a table, they give you a balloon on a string with a number written on it so they can find you in the crowd, which I thought was kind of cool until someone in our party suggested that the restaurant could save a balloon by writing the number on my giant head.

ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Orioles pitcher Sidney Ponson apologized for his behavior yesterday and asked for forgiveness from the judge he allegedly struck during a Christmas Day beach fight that led to his 11-day detainment, which ended Tuesday. Ponson spoke at a news conference at the Queen Beatrix International Airport shortly before boarding a plane for Florida, where he plans to remain until reporting to the Orioles' spring training camp next month. He read a statement in Papiamento, a local language of Aruba, and took no questions.

While Bonaire is everybody's beloved baby, and Curacao is its budding offspring, Aruba for years was the estranged stepchild in the ABC islands of the Netherlands Antilles.It's not that Aruba is particularly homely. Goodness knows, all three islands are flat, dry and cactus-ridden, in contrast to the lush mountains and tropical rain forests of the French West Indies, their northeastern neighbors. It's just that with all the hype spread over the years for tourists to "sojourn in Bonaire and Curacao," nobody paid much attention to the neglected cherub.

ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Chu Halabi wheeled his SUV into a parking space near his chiropractor's office one morning last week. "Got to get my back whacked before I leave town," the Orioles' longtime Aruban scout said. He was headed for Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where he would stay with Orioles pitcher Sidney Ponson, whom Halabi signed years ago and still counsels. His job was to attach himself to Ponson, who was recently detained for 11 days in Aruba after a beach fight. Parenting Ponson meant Halabi also would be catching Ponson during some of the pitcher's workouts before spring training.

A judge in Aruba on Monday ordered a Gaithersburg man held for 16 more days as investigators continued to probe how and why his traveling companion disappeared two weeks ago. Gary V. Giordano, 50, appeared before an examining magistrate for a little over two hours. The proceeding was closed to the press, as is typical at this stage in Aruban investigations. But Aruban Solicitor General Taco Stein said that prosecutors argued to the judge that Gardner appeared to be the victim of foul play and Giordano was involved.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - With a cup of coffee in his hand and the usual mischievous grin on his face, Orioles pitcher Sidney Ponson was back in his element. He returned to camp yesterday knowing that the worst was behind him, that he wouldn't serve any more jail time related to his Christmas Day arrest in Aruba. He could begin concentrating on baseball again, just as he has tried to do since the start of spring training. A judge postponed the assault case on Thursday, giving Ponson until May to reach an out-of-court settlement.
