Think of it as your basic love story. Vampire meets girl. Vampire likes girl. Vampire sinks fangs into girl's neck.OK, OK, so maybe it's not exactly like "Romeo and Juliet." It is, however, a lot like "Dark Shadows," the revamped cult favorite that has brought the 175-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins back from the dead.But the show, which airs at 9 p.m. Fridays on WMAR-TV, is only the latest example of growing interest in the living dead, which some say exploded with the success of Anne Rice's vampire novels.

Los Angeles --"Dark Shadows" is being called all kinds of things.Its creator, Dan Curtis, calls it a "fantasy." Its star, Ben Cross, calls it a "vampire tale." Still others have tagged it a horror story or a campy sendup of the popular original, which ran on ABC as an afternoon serial from 1966 to '71.Part of the trouble with "Dark Shadows" is that it contains elements of each of those formulas -- to the point of confusing some viewers. One minute, you're shown a corpse with a bloody, mangled neck.

One of the group's goals was to start a Habitat for Humanity housing program in the poor, predominantly black community.Three years later, the Sandtown Habitat for Humanity has rebuilt four vacant houses with volunteer labor and privately donated funding and materials, and then sold them at cost to local families. The monthly mortgage payment for each house is about $200.

The pancakes being poured, flipped and served at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Sykesville yesterday were cookbook-perfect - tender, dinner plate-sized circles of golden-brown batter doused in rivers of melted butter and syrup. "Just wonderful," pronounced Stephen P. Bourexis, a town attorney who stopped in for a plate of blueberry pancakes and sausage before a morning court date in Westminster. For 35 of the past 40 years that the church has held its Shrove Tuesday pancake lunch and supper, Esther Mercer has presided over the preparation of an estimated 35,000 plain and blueberry pancakes at the annual event.
