If you're looking for something different to do on Valentine's Day, check out a Baltimore Chamber Orchestra concert devoted to one of the most famous composers you may never have heard of -- Ignace Joseph Pleyel. He barely registers on the public consciousness today, but this contemporary of Haydn's and Beethoven's enjoyed heady celebrity status, thanks to his tuneful, graceful compositions and some major business ventures. The music publishing house he founded in Paris in 1795 was a leader in its field for four decades.

He's out there. A lumbering, bewhiskered marine mammal, inexplicably blundering around the Chesapeake Bay. And as bay temperatures drop and the wily manatee eludes his rescuers' nets, the tension mounts. Can this manatee be saved?The question is gripping plenty of Marylanders. But even before the endangered sea cow wandered into Queenstown Creek this week, Maryland was catching manatee fever.Once little known outside Florida, manatees are suddenly hot everywhere. Their popularity has been on the rise ever since pop singer Jimmy Buffett began crusading for the manatee's survival a decade ago.Now animal lovers across the country are snapping up manatee T-shirts, stuffed animals and coffee cups.

Normally I am not a liar. I'm the person who fills out the customs declaration for two postcards and a duty-free candy bar. Security guards know my life story, and cops know if they pull me over I'll confess that, yes, I was speeding. Then I met a guy online -- a great guy. And for a long time, neither of us could bring ourselves to tell the truth about it. Now, during this week of hearts and flowers, it's time to come out of the closet. I was a 24-year-old writer living in Spokane, Wash.

Orioles fans often hear about the Oriole Way, "Orioles Magic" and the three World Series titles during the team's glory years in the '60s, '70s and '80s. Even 20-somethings who missed the last title, in 1983, have playoff appearances in 1996 and 1997 and the historic career of Cal Ripken Jr. to hold onto. But for many, being an Orioles fan has been nothing but disappointment, a streak of 14 straight losing seasons and teams that have started out hot, with plenty of players showing lots of promise, only to find new ways to crush our spirits.

NEW YORK - Some people in the real estate business never know, when they get up in the morning, whether the uncontrollable urge to buy an apartment will strike during the course of the workday. "Sometimes when I walk into a place for business, the hair on the back of my neck stands up," said Diane M. Ramirez, the president of Halstead Property. "I can see the finished product, the pearl, and I feel the creative juice of knowing what it could be if I just got my hands on it." Dolly Lenz, a broker who is executive vice president and managing director of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, often has the same reaction to properties she is scouting.

What makes a classic kid's picture book?Nobody is quite sure. There is no question, however, that when a picture book reaches the summit of popularity, it can become immortal.There are a lot of books -- and a lot of kids involved. And a lot of money. And magic.Most authorities on children and learning and many literary professionals seem to agree on some of the qualities that make up the magic. The classics have to do with basic life truths -- bridges to the grown-up world over such terrifying terrain as death, defiance, loneliness and identity.

When they became foster parents two years ago, Bill and Nancy Fuller of Dundalk quickly learned not to expect too many similarities among the orphans they took in. Yes, they all had problems. It's just that they all had different problems. Sandy, their current charge, cried easily at first. Sammy had strange eating habits. K. D. would wake them at 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. every night, attuned to some former family's clock. Mild-mannered Rudy endured much teasing until he snapped one day. Madison was pretty much perfect, so considerate that he remembered to send a Christmas card after he found a permanent home.

In my dreams, I am lying on a warm, white crescent of beach in the shade of towering palms as frothy surf crashes before me and the love of my life leans over with a soft kiss, an icy glass of champagne and sweet words of affection."
