This is a story about a guy, his dog, his friends, and his 200-person Christmas Eve buffets, but mostly it's about the 18th-century Eastern Shore house he bought after crawling through a window to get the door open for his real estate agent.When he got to the door, the guy, Joseph Paul Davis, a Washington interior designer, discovered there was no knob on the inside, so he went back to the window and stuck his head out. "This is the house," Davis told the agent. "Write up the contract."Thirteen days later he owned it.That was eight years ago, and for most of that time, the house has been a work in progress.

Paul Davis came to Michigan State three years ago with the type of in-state hype you'd expect from a player who had won Mr. Basketball during his last season in high school and was considered one of the top college prospects in the country. It didn't take long for the 6-foot-11 center to find a place in the program's lore. At the end of a solid freshman year in which he averaged just under eight points and five rebounds a game, Davis scored 13 points and made a couple of big shots in the final minute to catapult Michigan State past Maryland, the defending national champion, in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.

Thomas Atkinson Davis, who had worked at restaurants in Baltimore County, has been presumed drowned at Duncan Lake in British Columbia, Canada. The Cockeysville resident was 21. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police ended a search-and-rescue operation in a rugged wilderness area near Howser Ridge on Saturday. Mr. Davis was last seen July 15 as he took a morning swim. Glacier-fed Duncan Lake is located outside the city of Kaslo. Mr. Davis had been camping with a group in a remote area. Officials speculate he succumbed to hypothermia because the water temperature is warm along the shore but drops to dangerous levels at the middle of the lake.

When nothing makes sense, when the world is upside down, when the foundation of our beliefs has crumbled -- in other words, when Jacksonville is chosen over Baltimore -- we need something to hold onto.But what, you may ask, could that something be?One word . . . plastics. Sorry, wrong word. This NFL thing has shaken me up so much that I think I'm in "The Graduate." (Hey, is that Katherine Ross over there?)No, the one word is . . . ratings.Make of this what you will -- and who knows what the NFL's great minds make of such information -- but a check of ratings for the past two Sundays shows that Baltimore is continuing to watch the Redskins despite their poor season.
