On screen, Julie Bowen plays a perfectionist mom, a sane obsessive surrounded by slightly crazy compulsives: the father who married a hottie younger than her. The man-child of a husband she considers her fourth child. The pigeon- and hotel bedspread-fearing gay brother and, well, just about everyone else in her aptly named "Modern Family," last season's breakout TV comedy. In real life, Julie Bowen is another mom but in a decidedly saner family - only her 3-year-old seems out of a sitcom, referring to his twin baby brothers as John and Other John.

Distracted by the making of paragraphs and domestic duties, I overlooked that March 1 was the ninety-first birthday of Richard Wilbur, one of our most distinguished poets. I heard him read once when I was undergraduate, and a more urbane, witty, and polished master of verse you cannot find. His translations of Moliere are a pleasure both to read and to hear. And his version of Villon's Ou sont les neiges d'antan? is perfect in English in its concision and melancholy realism: "But where shall last year's snow be found?"

In "Starcarbon," as in her National Book Award-winning "Victory Over Japan and her "Net of Jewels," Ellen Gilchrist offers us the voice of the modern world. Her perspective and tone are comic, always ready to resume the minimalist view when her characters come close to ruining their own or others' lives."Starcarbon" continues the story of the Hand family. The characters are parodies of 1990s losers, consumed by immediate need but willing to struggle.There is Helen, the smothered mother who leaves her husband and five children, only to seek pregnancy and marriage with another man. Then there is Olivia, the long-lost, half-American-Indian daughter of Daniel, the family alcoholic.

Whether it was the first synthetic adhesive produced in 1869 or the "super glues" of today, glues or adhesives have one purpose: They bond two solid materials together. In the past 15 years, the term "super glue" has become a part of the American vernacular. But exotic new glues are hitting the market with highly visible brand names such as Gorilla Glue. There are so many new glues that sometimes it is hard to know what is out there, much less how to choose the right one. There are very few glues that work well on all types of materials.

In 18th-century Venice, the Italian landscape painter Giovanni Antonio Canale, known as Canaletto, did a brisk business selling fictitious architectural views to the wealthy English gentlemen visiting his country. Though Canaletto was perfectly capable of producing precise renderings of well-known landmarks, he also specialized in what were known as capricci -- wholly invented scenes of monumental gates, towers, castles, bridges and other impressive structures that existed only in the artist's fertile imagination.
