Recently, I planned and held a small cocktail party in record time for friends from Washington, D.C. I made spring the theme of the party and used some of my new computer skills to create colorful invitations printed in bright shades of green, pink and orange. Next, I worked on the menu. Champagne, the lone beverage I chose to serve, proved to be a smart choice because I didn't have go to the trouble or expense of stocking a full bar. For finger food, I offered skewered scallops on a bed of watercress with a sweet and sour sauce.

Maryland consumers tightened their purse strings and sat out the surprising new-car buying frenzy that swept much of the nation in October, according to figures released yesterday by the state Motor Vehicle Administration.The 1.2 percent decline in new-vehicle sales in the state during October contrasted sharply with the 10 percent boost in car and light truck deliveries nationally."Dealers that I've have talked to said that October was a pretty good month," said Robert C. Russel, president of R&H Motor Cars Ltd. in Owings Mills and chairman of the Maryland New Car and Truck Dealers Association, a trade group representing 320 new-car dealers in the state.

IT TAKES CHUTZPAH to accept an early-retirement buy-out from a $68,400-a-year Baltimore City job and then take a similar high-paying position in another municipal department. Retiring recreation superintendent Bob Wade, the former Dunbar High and University of Maryland basketball coach, almost succeeded in that double-dipping scam. Who can blame a guy for trying?Even more infuriating than Mr. Wade's audacity are the roles his boss, parks and recreation director Marlyn Perritt, and his would-be boss, school superintendent Walter G. Amprey, played in this scheme.

WASHINGTON - New budget projections from congressional analysts and the White House show that the Bush administration is almost certain to violate its promise not to dip into the Social Security surplus to pay the government's bills, prominent economists said yesterday. A White House report last week made clear that only an assortment of accounting changes - described by Democrats as politically motivated gimmicks - would prevent the use of Social Security to make ends meet in the budget during the rest of President Bush's four-year term.

CHICAGO -- There is a tendency among ballplayers, Orioles catcher Gregg Zaun said, to believe that the use of chewing tobacco and dip won't ever hurt them.Even after Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Brett Butler was found to have cancer of the tonsils Tuesday, Zaun said, "Everybody thinks, 'that'll never happen to me.' I'll be the first to admit that."Zaun, however, is worried. "Scared," he said.He's trying to break a habit that started 10 years ago, something he compares to a drug addiction -- except that he can satisfy his craving by driving down to the local gas station.

Martha & Mary's stands along Reisterstown's bustling Main Street, a corridor packed with small shops offering everything from antiques to ski equipment. The strip bristles with signs. It's impossible to read them all while driving the posted speed. But this restaurant's name stands out in blue and white on a sign large enough to be seen for at least a couple of blocks. On days when weather permits outdoor dining, wrought-iron tables and chairs are topped with very visible canopy-class umbrellas.

MUCH has been written of late in this paper about eating crabs. Depending on what you believe, there are fewer of Maryland's famous crustaceans on tables this summer because a) they've been over-harvested, b) watermen aren't being allowed to make a living or c) both of the above. Whatever the truth may be, Bill Green is smart. Since he opened the Stoney Creek Inn six months ago, he's pinned his hopes on crabs south of here. Way south, as in Louisiana. "I get 90 percent of our crabs from there for consistency, and because Maryland's industry is unstable," he said.
