Sister Celine Arnold, a Carmelite nun for 76 years and prioress -- the mother superior -- at her order's monastery on Dulaney Valley Road in Towson during an era of reforms in the Roman Catholic Church resulting from the Vatican II council, died of respiratory and heart failure there Thursday. She was 98. Born Helen Agnes Arnold in Taneytown, Sister Celine entered the cloistered community in Baltimore in 1926 after graduating from Trinity College in Washington with a chemistry degree. She took her final vows in 1931.

Once upon a time, a little boy named Pierre got a stuffed animal monkey. "Pierre named him Boo-Boo Monkey," writes his mother, Celine. "It is his best friend, he takes him everywhere, he wanted me to put some diapers on monkey (because according to Pierre Monkey is still a baby and needs diapers .... so cute) and some days I had to make some clothes too (LOL I can't believe I did it with paper towel), and of course Monkey would join us for dinner and always sleeps with Pierre. " Or at least Boo-Boo Monkey did sleep with 4-year-old Pierre until the stuffed animal went missing somewhere in Federal Hill.

We were sitting in the office, humming the love theme to "Titanic," wondering Will that brilliant diva Celine Dion ever get the exposure she deserves? when something happened that made us want to rise to our feet and beat our chest with one clenched fist, the way Celine does when she sings "My Heart Will Go On." That something, of course, was the arrival of "A Voice and a Dream: The Celine Dion Story" (Ballantine Books, $5.99).Yes, Celine fans, we know what you're thinking: Between listening to Celine's newly released French album and her soon-to-be-released Christmas album, watching her just-around-the-corner holiday special and following her world tour into the year 2000, however will we find the time to read 174 pages about "the world's hottest diva in a captivating story of a real-life Cinderella"?

A slow flirtation with a steady burn": that's what movie-maker Richard Linklater was after when he planned Before Sunset as an 80-minute amble through Paris with an American and a Frenchwoman. The man is a novelist named Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and the woman is Celine (Julie Delpy), who inspired his new book with a life-altering one-night stand nine years before in Vienna (as chronicled in Linklater's 1995 film, Before Sunrise). They were supposed to meet in Vienna again, six months after their first tryst.

It probably helps to be drunk. But that's the point. An awful lot of people want to get wasted and ride around with Tim McGraw or Celine Dion, according to a recent survey asking Americans to pick a fantasy designated driver. McGraw and Dion led their respective gender categories, with 33 percent of 1,167 over-21 respondents choosing the black-hatted country star and 27 percent selecting leather-lunged cash cow Dion. What if she sings in the car? Maybe a cab isn't such a bad option. McGraw surely got a boost from his role as a designated driver in a Super Bowl beer ad last January.

Big-budget sequels are usually the bread and butter of the summer movie season (see: Shrek 2 and Spider-Man 2). So it's surprising that one of the most anticipated follow-ups of the season made less than $2 million in its first incarnation. Richard Linklater's 1995 romance Before Sunrise, beloved by cinephiles and critics but not a box-office smash, relates the chance encounter of two strangers, Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Deply), who share an amazing night in Vienna. The film's second installment, Before Sunset (opening tomorrow in Baltimore)

Four years ago, a few brief paragraphs in an article opened our family's eyes to the world and our hearts to a special friend from France.Her name is Celine Coulon. In 1989, she came to Mount Airy from a suburb of Paris as a member of a student-exchange summer program. We responded to the newspaper's plea for host families and were matched with Celine. She stayed in our home for four weeks that summer and charmed all of us with her wit, wisdom and wide-eyed wonder at all things American.Celine's visit was a two-way educational experience that did not end that summer.

"A Life Less Ordinary" is two-thirds fun, one-third mess, and certainly no better than ordinary.An admittedly calculated attempt to tap into the mother lode that is the American box office, "A Life Less Ordinary" fails because director Danny Boyle, producer Andrew Macdonald and writer John Hodge didn't have enough faith in their chosen genre -- screwball comedy -- to stick with it. Instead, they've tried grafting onto it some of the cutting-edge sensibility of their two earlier films, "Shallow Grave" and "Trainspotting."

Thanks to the MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, Nick Lachey has become a guy you want to like. His role as the harried, good-natured husband of Jessica Simpson practically earns him sainthood status, not just because of his patience but also because he transmits a persona that is hard-working and genuine. His solo debut, the irksomely titled SoulO, is much like the man on TV: uncomplicated but likable -- characteristics, unfortunately, that don't play as well on disc as they do on TV. SoulO lacks the kind of fire that makes you crave the sound of it again and again.

LAS VEGAS - On Jan. 1, 2000, the story goes, Celine Dion, exhausted from touring and wanting to be a stay-at-home wife and mother, came to Las Vegas with her manager-husband and 250 of their family and friends. The couple renewed their wedding vows. They also saw O, the Cirque du Soleil spectacular on water at the Bellagio, and so moved and flabbergasted was Dion that she came to an inevitable conclusion: She wanted one for herself. She's getting one. In A New Day, which is what her new Vegas extravaganza is called, Dion, strapped to a harness, soars 50 feet in the air, to the top of the gargantuan proscenium, as she belts out the love ballad "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."

Music may be an art first and foremost, but there's also a lot of craft involved. Particularly on the performance end, where taste and timing are worthless without the ability to implement them. After all, there are few things as frustrating for music lovers as hearing a weak voice struggle to carry a strong melody.But when dealing with virtuosos, the situation reverses. If a singer has been blessed with a voice that can do almost anything, ability matters less than taste and timing. Because there's nothing more embarrassing than hearing a great voice squandered on a mediocre melody.

Celine Dion speaks of her epiphany. Not the recent birth of her first child or the career rocket of the Titanic soundtrack in 1999. The epiphany arrived two years ago as she sat in a Las Vegas casino. "It changed my life and my entire way of thinking about performances on stage." And, it turns out, the moment may also reshape the life of the evolving entertainment scene in the high-rolling desert city. Dion, who stepped away from the public concert stage on New Year's Eve 1999 to begin the role of new mother, has agreed to an unprecedented pact that will see her perform five nights a week for 40 weeks a year over three years at Caesar's Palace.
