Ever since shipments of blue and white Chinese porcelain started to land in the West in the 17th century, it has been collected, displayed and sold for princely prices.Contrary to popular myth, it was never used as mere ship ballast. True, it was heavy and did help balance ships when it was stowed in the holds for the long voyage back to England and eventually the American Colonies. Records do show that British and American merchants advised the Chinese to make their porcelain a little heavier to withstand the rigors of the China Seas, but it was never cheap.

Blue and white were the dominant colors at Jim Parker's funeral yesterday. He lay in a blue casket, which stood in a sea of blue and white floral arrangements, one a Baltimore Colts horseshoe and another bearing his jersey number, 77. Blue and white were the colors of the old Baltimore Colts. Hundreds of people turned out at New Antioch Baptist Church in Randallstown to pay respects to Parker, a National Football League Hall of Famer who died Monday after suffering from congestive heart failure and kidney disease.

Dark orange koi swam in a black pond as visitors crossed a narrow footbridge. Waterfront gardens sloped down to a backdrop of sailboats catching a breeze on Spa Creek. Several hundred visitors endured the hot, sticky weather Sunday to walk through 14 private gardens in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Annapolis.

This week --The neighbor boy forgot to cut the grass.The lawn remembered that it was a fieldAnd rioted in flowers -- an uprising.Dandelions, shocking yellow, exploded into seedWhite six-pointed stars burst on slender stalksHarebells hung out, blue and white, tossed upOvernight from clumps of mock crabgrassAnd purple violets gathered under dogwoods --All reaching toward the democratic sunCelebrating blessed reprieveFrom the inexorable (almost) mower.And I'm relieved, I guess, to be alive myself,A continent and then some from LA --From California where the people livewith earthquake and mere human scaleBrutality can go unnoticed, almost.

It was simultaneously endearing and appalling, this idea of requiring a potential mate to pass a test of football trivia as a condition of matrimony. The concept forms a climactic scene in the movie Diner, when a character solemnly submits his fiancee to a rigorous exam on Baltimore Colts history. The bit delightfully conveyed the struggle between maturity and immaturity that is the crux of the film. It is one of the most memorable scenes in the movie, which was released 20 years ago and made pop culture heroes out of a clique of Forest Park High School grads upon whom the film was loosely based.

All this reminiscing about the Baltimore Colts started when a collection of business folks and political figures finally decided to tear down Memorial Stadium. I kept thinking back to my days as a Colts ballboy and training camp assistant. Then I decided to make a farewell visit to the long-vacant stadium. On a brisk morning in late January, I spent half an hour in the building that once felt to me like a shrine. I walked alone through the old Colts locker room and slowly made my way through the dark, narrow tunnel leading out to what used to be the field.
