This fall, 11-year-old Shayna Slatkin will start middle school. Before her first class, she and her mother will cover all the usual bases: shopping for new notebooks, pencils and erasers - and visiting a spa for a new look. Shayna, who lives in Baltimore, is a client at Salon & Spa Kids, a Pikesville hair salon and day spa that caters to the youthful set. With bright colors and scaled-down furniture, the salon provides a welcoming environment for preschool to high school-age kids, who can relax with a DVD as they get a haircut or lounge in a butterfly pedicure chair during spa treatments.

The Dowager Countess' quips may be priceless, but living at "Downton Abbey" has a high price tag.  Money-saving website (oh, the irony) NetVoucherCodes.co.uk  has calculated that a year of living at the estate would cost $8,365,292. That's a lot of silver polish for Mr. Carson. The website breaks down a "budget. " Maintenance is about $2.9 million, oil costs almost $1 million. Even a yearly surprise of logs (must keep those fireplaces going) would run you almost $46,000.  See the graphic breakdown below.  Season 4 of "Downton Abbey" is airing now in the U.K. It premieres across the pond (aka: here)

Once upon a time, mob dons and sissies were believed to be the only male candidates for cuticle snipping, nail shaping and buff jobs.Now, all kinds of guys fret anxiously about matters of critical global importance such as: "Do my nails look okay?"Not to mention the terror and shame of unbecoming toenails.Yet, despite great grooming strides by the ragged-hooved sex, men have yet to achieve salon chair parity.Todd Murray felt about as welcome as a female reporter in a locker room when he redeemed his gift certificate for a pedicure this year.

Brian Lewis leaned back on a leather reclining chair while his daughter Kayla took a seat behind him. She put a glob of cleansing cream in the palm of her hand and began massaging it onto her father's face. When she got to his beard, she hesitated. "Can I rub the cream into this stuff?" the 15-year-old said. Her father chuckled and assured Kayla that she could. Lewis was one of about 18 parents and grandparents who attended the ninth annual "Day of Pampering" offered by students enrolled in the licensed cosmetology class at Harford Technical High School in Bel Air. Although he was a willing participant, Lewis was not aware of the day's events until he was driving his daughter to school from their Bel Air home.

It's spring. The lilacs are blooming and perfuming the air. The birds are singing. Here in Rodgers Forge, we hear them intermittently - whenever there's a pause in the roar of lawn mowers, weed whackers and grass blowers. What a friend of mine calls "lawn assault weapons." Indeed, when my neighbors fire them up, don goggles, and fill the air for hours with their deafening din and noxious fumes, I begin to think of grass as a greater threat to our collective happiness and security than terrorism.

First there were roller skates, then skateboards and inline skates. Last year, it was the scooter. And now, there are Heelys: your mother's newest nightmare. Essentially heavy-duty sneakers with a wheel right in the heel, Heelys (which have great potential to be banned by schools) do double duty as both shoes and skates -- meaning you can get a good running start before you let the wheels fly. Sprint, rest back on your heels, lift your toes and voila -- you're "heeling," which roughly translates to "zipping along at break-neck speeds."

The senators' fervent televised pleas regarding President Clinton's case slipped into the hallway.
