Congratulations to the Baltimore Ravens on their Super Bowl win! Does anyone have their voice back yet? Now back to our regularly scheduled lives … Countless times I have driven by Stevenson Village, tucked in the crossroads of Stevenson, Old Valley, and Hillside Roads.and never really paid attention to the businesses. The Beall family owned the center eons ago, and the shops were once tenant homes. In the 1940s, there was an auto dealership on the property and in the 1970s, Stevenson Village evolved with 30,000 square feet of space to lease.

WASHINGTON -- In this year of higher taxes and national parsimony, there are some items Congress wants to buy for itself that have been deemed too vital to give up.There's the renovation of the House of Representatives Beauty Parlor, for one, which would cost $375,000.There's the pilot program for video-conferencing, for another -- a $130,000 project that could turn into another advantage of incumbency. Some day it may allow lawmakers to appear on video screens in their home districts when they're too busy to go home, as they are now, two weeks before Election Day.There's also, to name a few more:* $2 million to renovate the kitchen and members' dining area of the House restaurant in the Capitol.

Beauty Shop wastes an awful lot of talent, both by settling for the ordinary when it should be striving for something more, and by failing to resolve an apparent disconnect between those making the movie and those acting in it. Queen Latifah, reprising the role she originated in last year's Barbershop 2: Back In Business, is Gina, a hairstylist recently relocated from Chicago (where, presumably, Ice Cube and his Barbershop franchise are still holding forth)...

Connie and Nancy and I have been best friends since the seventh grade, and when the three of us get together, it is middle school all over again. Card games and board games are part of our mix, and I am happy to report that while I am no better at these games than I was nearly 50 years ago, I am much more mature about losing. I think the wine helps. I have to say, nothing prepared me for life better than Park and Shop, a board game of competitive errand-running. Not even The Game of Life, with its kids and college funds and insurance policies, got me in shape for adulthood any better than Park and Shop.

Last year, even as she grew weaker from an illness she'd had for many months, the Rev. Josephine Pinkard of Severna Park kept telling her daughter, Avanette, of a dream she couldn't get out of her head. "I see the roof [of your business] opening up, and God showering the place with blessings," she told Avanette, who owns Essential Essence, a Laurel day spa and beauty salon. "I see it growing by leaps and bounds." At the time, the imagery seemed absurd. The Pinkards had started the business in 1997, offering their Severna Park home as collateral for a loan.

While beauty-shop camaraderie will appeal more to women than men in the audience of Prince George's Little Theatre's production of Steel Magnolias, the strong friendships and barbed wit that allow us to cope with hardship should have near-universal appeal. Robert Harling's comic play was first produced off-Broadway in 1987 with an all-female cast and ran for 1,126 performances. In 1989 Steel Magnolias became a movie starring Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts in a role that garnered her her first Oscar nomination.

It's Saturday morning in any neighborhood hair salon. Dryers are whirring, curling irons steaming. Amid the machinery, women are gathered - talking, laughing, gossiping, and at times maybe even crying. There are rollers and bobby pins, yes, but more importantly, there's intimacy here. And comfort. The neighborhood beauty shop is a place where stories are told - which is what makes it a perfect setting for a movie. Over the years, many filmmakers have picked up on this notion and set their movies in or around the goings-on in beauty salons.
