The 19th-century stone mansion for sale on Elkton's Main Street offers an impressive list of features: numerous bedrooms and baths, as well as six fireplaces. But there's much more: a fully appointed wedding chapel filled with decades of memories — and even some reservations for next Valentine's Day. Owners Frank and Barbara Smith hope a buyer will retain the chapel, the last remnant of the bustling marriage business that once defined this town on Maryland's northern border. But they also realize that the site, across the street from the Cecil County courthouse, would be a prime location for lawyers' offices.

Ray Cooney's fast-paced British farce Run for Your Wife first appeared in 1982 on London's West End, where it ran for nine years. Today, 2nd Star Productions demonstrates why this show has been so successful. Cooney's improbable plot focuses on a London cabdriver with a double life. John Smith spends his days with one wife in one apartment and his nights with a second wife in another. His precarious balance falls apart when he ends up in the emergency room. In a confused state, he gives both his addresses to hospital attendants.

April is a great time in the herb garden, says Barbara Smith.To the casual observer there might not appear to be much to look at. But Smith and her husband, Tom, anticipate the appearance of each plant, eager to see which ones survived the winter and which ones didn't.The new growth emerging from the brown earth emphasizes an infinite spectrum of the color green. And, "It's the one time of year when the herb beds look neat and well-behaved," she says.Most perennial herbs are by nature spreading, lanky and invasive -- sending shoots into surrounding ground each year.
