Well, the quinoa salad was a hit at the garden party. I think. At least the bowl ended up empty, which is great because my refrigerator is stuffed with greens and with leftovers. One thing I realized today: I can keep up with making a dish every day (maybe) but usually there are also leftovers, too. My husband was heading out the door to work out today and mentioned that he might "grab something for lunch" and I told him that really, that might not be okay today -- or for the rest of the summer.

Vultures have moved into a very tall tree above our house and car. To say there are "bird droppings" is an understatement. Not to mention our house looks cursed. What can we do? Many bird dispersal methods won't work because the vultures are perched so high. The keys are timing, persistence and diversity. Notice what time they congregate and be ready to preemptively target them at those times, every day, until they leave. Subject them to loud noises such as an air horn or distress calls.

THERE'S A garden party going on in town, and wallflowers are getting the attention. That's because the "wallflowers" are flowery paintings and photographs by two east Columbia artists, Robynn Searight and Jerry Weinstein. The exhibit, called "Garden Party," is at Artists' Gallery in the American City Building through Aug. 31. It is the first collaborative display between Searight, a watercolorist, and Weinstein, a photographer. "We really complement each other," said Searight, an avid gardener who lives in Kings Contrivance.

b intern Becky Quinn chimes in about what tickled her funny bone this week.  Hint, it was not the Dundler Mifflin billboard. "Community" : Troy and Abed's housewarming party turned into a weird parallel universe with dice rolling, lost body parts and death?! Yes, in the end, Jeff loses an arm, Troy loses his larynx (but is equipped with a delightfully high-pitched stoma) and PIERCE IS DEAD. Abed comes equipped with goatees so that the study group can fully commit to evil.

The F/A-18 Hornets were the life of the garden party - in fact, one party after another enlivened an entire waterfront block. In the plush Ferry Farms neighborhood, just across the Severn River from the Naval Academy, hundreds of spectators were invited to watch the annual performance of the Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy's precision flying team. The aerial performance is a Commissioning Week ritual, followed by the flyover today at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium as a supersonic sendoff to the 980 graduating midshipmen.

There were lawyers, judges and representatives from a number of family advocacy groups, but this wasn't your garden variety legal proceeding. No, this get-together was your garden party variety -- as in the annual Spring Lawn Party and Silent Auction for Alternative Directions, Inc. A casual, inviting atmosphere permeated the gardens surrounding the Towson home of Mary Joel Davis, Alternative Directions' executive director. Some of the 220 guests brought their home-cooked specialties, such as crab dip and sweet potato pie, creating an almost-endless buffet and giving the event a real family feel.

COLLEGE PARK - The post-game celebration consisted of a few fist pumps and handshakes, and several satisfactory smiles, all as a muted chant of "Final Four" was barely audible at Comcast Center. It was the type of reaction you might expect from a Maryland team that did not want to be in this situation two weeks ago, but now is just happy to be winning basketball games again. Thanks to a tough defensive effort in the second half and the persistence of junior forward Nik Caner-Medley, the Terrapins put away Texas Christian, 85-73, yesterday afternoon before 10,608, advancing to Madison Square Garden and the semifinals of the National Invitation Tournament for the first time since 1972.

Planning a garden is like planning a good dinner party: Balanced diversity of both participants and menu enhances the experience for everyone involved. It also means that, instead of resting entirely on one frazzled host or overworked gardener, success is the result of collaboration. "The organisms in a garden form a community of interconnectedpopulations whose whole is far greater - and far more interesting - than the sum of its parts," note Steven B. Carroll and Steven D. Salt in Ecology for Gardeners (Timber Press, 2004, $29.95)
