Life is good. Or is it? We work hard, we play hard, and we have more stuff. But we're stressed out, swimming in debt and spending more time working than with family and friends. And, we know we're doing it. According to a survey released by the Center for a New American Dream in Takoma Park, most Americans think that society's priorities are too focused on work and money, and not enough on family and community. That knowledge, though, isn't enough to squelch our often-frantic lifestyles.

IRVINE, Calif. - If this year's Phillips 66 National Championships hold any enduring place in Michael Phelps ' mind, he might remember them as a needed, albeit painful, slug of reality. Until the past week, Phelps had treated his four-month comeback as something of a lark, working out when he wished and recapturing his past brilliance in fleeting bursts. He'd said he was happy simply getting back in the pool. But in truth, Phelps' love of swimming and his fierce need for victory always have been inextricably linked.

A line of folks stood sipping lattes outside a Fells Point coffee shop yesterday afternoon. They would have sat, but -- alas -- by city decree, the Daily Grind has no right to outdoor chairs. This is news to the hundreds of customers who have taken their coffee along with a waterfront view for years at the Thames Street coffeehouse's outdoor tables. The Daily Grind found out this month that although it had permits for outdoor seating, the city issued them in error. So when neighbors complained this month about noise, the city said the tables and chairs had to go. Daily Grind owner David Key taped signs in his shop's front window apologizing for the vanished seats and urging upset customers to come inside and sign a petition.

I know and like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the man who has accomplished so much while leading a blue leaning, labor dominated northeastern state. And so it was with much angst that I watched the media circus (dressed up as a press conference) in the immediate aftermath of "Bridgegate" - the revenge play wherein two senior Christie staffers ordered lane closures on the congested George Washington Bridge - allegedly to punish the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., who failed to support the governor's re-election campaign.

Mixing work with pleasure: It's not just for workaholics anymore. Take Michael Reardon. He looks like your average vacationer, strolling with his wife, Paula, and son, Dutch, down the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware. But wait. What's that black thing stuck to the waist of Michael's Bermuda shorts? It looks as if it could go off at any second. "My wife used to get upset, but I think she understands now," explains Reardon, a purchasing manager with a Philadelphia chemical company.

An Owings Mills coffee company is suing the Howard County Library and the county government for picking the Daily Grind to manage its two library cafes, alleging that the Grind falsified information in its bid proposal and library officials didn't properly check into the business. Straight From Seattle Espresso Inc., which operates 10 sites in Washington and Baltimore, wants the library system to start the bidding over again. "You have to play by the rules, and you have to disclose all that's asked for," said Matthew McCauley, who owns the company with his wife, Ashley.

Another Irish pub/restaurant has come to Baltimore. Tir Na Nog Irish Bar & Grill opened its doors in Harborplace last weekend in the space that used to be the upstairs of Planet Hollywood. General Manager Liam Kelly says the name -- pronounced just as it looks -- means "land of eternal youth." He says it is the third Tir Na Nog. The first is across the street from Madison Square Garden in New York City, and the second is near City Hall in Philadelphia. Liam himself comes from the land of the green, and so does everything inside the restaurant, except the TVs and outside furniture.

There are a million parking-ticket stories in this city and this is another one, because parking here has always been the emotional equivalent of death by paper-cuts. The visitors' bureau people are always shouting: "Come to our great city! Stay at our hotels! Eat in our restaurants! Enjoy our nightlife!" Sure. Just don't try to find a parking space. And even if you do find a parking space, get ready for something strange to happen. Look, I parked at a meter years ago and when I returned two hours later, a man was kissing the meter next to mine.

CALL IT A NO-HURRIES WEEKEND. THE object is to take a getaway but to go slowly, engaging in a meditation of movement and enjoying the journey as much as the destination. That is the answer to those who wonder why anyone would take a six-hour train-and-bus ride from Washington to Virginia Beach when Southwest Airlines offers one-hour, nonstop service from BWI Marshall Airport. A curse upon those who insist that the trip begins when the traveling ends. Getaways are supposed to divert the daily grind -- when we navigate the city's congestion-clogged roads en route to work, zoom to the pharmacy and bank before they close, dash to church or our child's soccer practice or to the mall, with hopes of finding a good parking space.

Whether you go to get juiced before a bar tour or just camp out for conversation, coffeehouses are ideal down-tempo destinations for a TV-less evening. (Laptops are OK, though.) A few cafes around town are open late enough to serve as post-dinner hangouts. All four of these have wireless Internet access. Though its kitchen closes at 10:30 p.m., One World Cafe (100 W. University Parkway, 410-235-5777) serves coffee, tea and other drinks 8 a.m.-2 a.m. Mondays-Saturdays. It's open Sundays, too, just not as late: 8 a.m.-5 p.m. The walls are deep yellow, and the crowd -- a lot of Johns Hopkins University students and staff -- is friendly.

Michael Mir left for Florida so quietly last summer that few knew he had sold his Persian restaurant, the Orchard Market and Cafe (8815 Orchard Tree Lane, Towson, 410-339-7700). The transition was seamless, in part because the new owners are no strangers to the place.Jason Bulkeley was the former manager, his wife, Sharareh, also worked there, his mother-in-law, Nahid Vaezpour, was and still is the chef and his brother-in-law Majid Kamoei is sous chef.The menu remains much the same, with the most popular dishes being an eggplant and artichoke heart appetizer, duck with pomegranate and walnut sauce, almond-crusted salmon with yogurt cilantro sauce and dried-plum braised lamb with grilled vegetables and butternut squash.

NOW THAT Deion Sanders has signed a one-year contract, it's time for the tricky part. The Ravens' coaching staff and front office has to find a way to slowly mesh Sanders' fluff-and-puff, strut-your-stuff personality into a blue-collar locker room. The players have been publicly saying the right things since the story broke nearly two weeks ago, but privately some are questioning if the Ravens are about to become the Washington Redskins by bringing in a high-priced free agent, and possibly bailing on a philosophy that relies on teamwork and chemistry.
