YESTERDAY'S welcoming ceremony for Aer Lingus at Baltimore-Washington International Airport comes six weeks too soon: Its thrice-weekly flights to Shannon and Dublin don't begin until early September. But premature popping of the champagne corks is understandable, given the importance of these new flights to BWI.

But when the door opened, it wasn't a celebrity hoping to get out of his overdue fines, but a gaggle of 3- and 4-year-old kids headed for story time. Yvette Hurt, owner of Pooh's Corner Daycare in Randallstown, said her husband, Earl, owns a limo company, so a couple of years ago, he started occasionally picking the kids up from school or taking them on field trips.
