Bruce and Isobel Cleland have a small, black and white photograph of their third child that can still move them to tears. In it, Georgia, almost 3, is looking down, cuddling her baby blanket. She is nearly bald from the chemotherapy and radiation that ravaged her body but saved her life. "That's my favorite picture," Isobel says. Bruce Cleland keeps the 1986 photo with other keepsakes from that time. In some ways, it seems like another life -- before the Clelands moved to Baltimore, before they knew Georgia would go into remission and survive, before they could fathom any good arising from their family tragedy.

As a student at West Virginia University, Sheldon Hyman decided to test out the ski slopes for the first time in his life. It cost him only $2. With pocket change, Hyman rented all the equipment he needed - boots, skis and poles - from a van nearby the slope outside of Morgantown, W.Va. that offered skiers three or four trails to venture down. Nearly a half-century later, skiing isn't the same cheap hobby it used to be for Hyman, but he's just as passionate about it. Hyman, 70, annually travels to the West Coast to test the top slopes in the country alongside his friends in the Baltimore Ski Club.

CHICAGO -- On a recent afternoon, the Beverly Hills, Calif., paparazzi took to the skies. Held at bay from their target by a long, gated driveway, they had to resort to helicopter fly-overs to nail their shot. In this case, however, the elusive celebrity wasn't a person - it was a house. Not just any house, but rather the top dog of the realty moment.

Deirdre Hamilton is no fan of snow or cold. She doesn't like heights either. Yet every winter she vacations at a ski resort."My kids ski, and my husband skis," explains Hamilton, who lives in Northern California. "I gave it a try -- I even took lessons -- but I just don't like skiing. It's too cold."That's not to say Hamilton twiddles her thumbs in a crowded ski lodge getting bored and grumpy. She doesn't. She stays busy gambling near Lake Tahoe or getting a massage at Snowbird in Utah. "I want to have fun, too."
