BREAK OUT the shamrocks. This is the day for the 46th annual St. Patrick's bazaar at St. Jane Frances de Chantal Roman Catholic Church in Riviera Beach. The school hall on St. Jane Drive will be transformed into the Emerald Isle from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Those who have attended the bazaar faithfully throughout the years will notice a few new additions. But loads of fun remains the goal for lucky lads and lasses as long as the green cash holds out.During the day, the bazaar will appeal to the wee folk in your crew with games of skill and chance, a duck pond, and grab bags filled with goodies.

YOU'D HAVE TO BE unconscious, or maybe just a husband, not to have noticed that Valentine's Day is coming up. Everywhere you look there are red hearts, Cupid cutouts and advertisements hawking specials for this romantic holiday. But I know that, as usual, my dear hubby will be in total shock when the big day arrives. He will make a mad dash for the nearest greeting card rack or flower mart and grab just about anything. One year, I received a "Happy Valentine's Day, Mother" card from him.I have come to accept that my husband just doesn't do holidays.

Halloween just doesn't seem like Halloween used to.There was a time when you could get by with carved pumpkins, a brightly lighted porch, a few orange trash bags stuffed with leaves and a supply of candy to satisfy neighborhood beggars and those with a sweet tooth.Now it's evolved into a decorating nightmare: scream mats, vibrating ghosts, black lights, yards of polyester spider webs, eerie sound effects, cardboard coffins, inflatable skeletons and monsters. Only your pocketbook limits your decorating possibilities.

The long hours of juggling rehearsals and homework, repeating lines and reworking acts, soon will be just a pleasant memory for the cast and crew of the Chesapeake High School Theater Group.That's just what drama coach Vicky Weedon is banking on."Some of our youngsters are planning on a career in the theater, but for many this is their first exposure to the hard work involved in presenting a play," Weedon said."We picked a play that could involve not only students at the high school but also students from elementary and middle school to help get them involved early."

The adrenalin rush should get us through the week, just in time for Labor Day and another break in the schedule.
