Writer Henry James is often quoted as saying the two most beautiful words in the English language are "summer afternoon." Few would disagree. The words unravel visceral recollections of corn on the cob roasting over hot coals or a yellowing meadow on the horizon, haze rising with a din released by thousands of grasshoppers. And if such pleasant memories can be compacted into the shortness of an afternoon, a summer getaway lasting a day, a week or all summer long is better yet. For many, escaping to a second home for weekends or extended retreats is ideal: a beach cottage, mountain cabin, or rural farmette where "real life" concerns turn to just living, to making simple memories we call on again and again.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday praised Joe Flacco's decision-making, especially his ability to deliver the ball quickly when under pressure on third down, as one of the things that contributed to one of the quarterback's better games in recent memory. Flacco threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns with a quarterback rating of 137.4 in the Ravens' 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, with a good chunk of that production coming on third down. “He made plays, and especially third down-and-long plays when he had pressure coming at him,” Harbaugh said.

Kelly Johnson has worn an Orioles uniform for just two weeks, but he already owns his own little part of Oriole Magic. Derek Jeter, who was Johnson's teammate for most of this season with the New York Yankees, was the main attraction this weekend in his final regular-season visit to Camden Yards. As has been the case in Jeter's other final stops this season, the Orioles pretty much rolled out the orange carpet for him, giving him a U.S. Navy captain's hat, a bushel of steamed crabs, an oversized crab mallet, a custom-made cake and a $10,000 donation in his name to the Miracle League of Manasota (Fla.)

Ben Jonson's 1609 farce, The Silent Woman, was among the playwright's greatest hits. Both John Dryden and Samuel Taylor Coleridge used the word "perfect" to describe this satire of Jacobean society. But American audiences are largely unfamiliar with the work, which is receiving its first-known professional American production at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre, where it is currently in previews. Under Michael Kahn's direction, Ted van Griethuysen stars as Morose, an aging, noise-phobic bachelor who marries Epicoene (Ricki Robichaux)

PONTIAC, Mich. -- Let it be noted that Erik Kramer had help on the day he pitched his perfect game. His protection was seamless. The Dallas Cowboys, determined not to let Barry Sanders beat them with his feet, left Kramer's receivers so open that, as Kramer said, "they didn't really cover anyone." Certainly a new way to play defense.Still, Kramer was perfect. You think that's a joke. You didn't see the first half of yesterday's NFC playoff at the Silverdome. Kramer, who starts for the Detroit Lions -- in case you didn't know -- attempted 22 passes.

Ashley Gray struck out 10 of the 15 batters she faced while throwing her first perfect game in the Institute of Notre Dame's five-inning 20-0 victory over Notre Dame Prep yesterday. Gray has started every game this season for the Indians (11-4) and averages 9.1 strikeouts with a 0.22 ERA. "She's been pretty dominant the whole year[and] in the A Conference of the IAAM. If you don't have a dominant pitcher ... you're basically cooked," said IND coach Greg Ehrman. Gray also went 4-for-5 (double, four RBIs)

A full sister to Perfect Moon, the stakes-winning 2-year-old based in California, attracted what was easily the top bid in Fasig-Tipton's two-day Midlantic December Mixed sale of thoroughbreds that concluded yesterday at the Timonium fairgrounds.

CHICAGO - The first half of the Orioles' six-game, weeklong trip to Chicago was a success in more ways than one. They beat up on the floundering Chicago White Sox, sweeping the three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field. Fate shined down on the Orioles, but that seems to happen when you're playing as well as this team's playing. On Tuesday, while the Chicago Cubs waited through a four-hour rain delay at Wrigley Field, not a drop fell on the city's South Side, even though the ballparks are less than 10 miles apart.

The headline on the news release out of Maryland's Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation yesterday sounded pretty great: "Private Sector Gains 18,700 Jobs Over-the-Year. " Read the body of the release, though, and you'll discover the actual news was not so great. In July, it says, Maryland actually lost 9,000 jobs, one of the worst performances in the nation and a distinct outlier in a month when 36 states and Washington, D.C., gained jobs. Not that the agency was dwelling on that.

If Republican Larry Hogan wants to be Maryland's next governor, he needs to drive home his message of cutting taxes and creating jobs. And he needs to appear pleasant. For his part, Democrat Anthony G. Brown needs to avoid unforced errors that could squander his advantages. And he can't underestimate his opponent. This is among the advice offered by political pundits and campaign veterans, many of whom expect a lively race for governor when the campaign for the Nov. 4 election moves into higher gear in the coming weeks.

On Monday night, WWE Raw ended with a perfect mix of nostalgia and build for the SummerSlam pay-per-view as the company celebrated Hulk Hogan's birthday. After advertising Hogan's birthday all night, complete with messages from the likes of Larry King and "Weird" Al Yankovic, they finally had a party for him in the final segment of the night. It started with "Mean" Gene Okerlund and Jimmy Hart out in the ring to introduce Hogan. Hogan came out, shilled the WWE Network for a bit, and then thanked the fans.

Yesterday (the weekend) in one sentence: The quarterfinal round was, sadly, as predictable as the last 16, but there's a chance teams might play more openly in this round. What's on tap: Brazil vs. Germany, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: These two world superpowers are quite familiar with each other, with Brazil winning the last three competitive matches, including the 2002 final in South Korea and Japan. More was on the line in that match, but this one might feel bigger in front of the home crowd for Brazil.

The back-and-forth between the campaigns of Republican Larry Hogan and Democrat Anthony Brown on Wednesday provided a good preview, just hours after the polls closed in the primary, of what the race for governor is going to be like. Mr. Hogan released a quickly produced, web-only ad attacking Mr. Brown as incompetent and blaming him for the tax hikes and rise in unemployment that occurred during his eight years as lieutenant governor. And the Democrats and Mr. Brown's campaign quickly responded by trying to make the conversation about something else.

He also scored a perfect 800 on the verbal portion of the test. Rare? It's like gold dust. Noah could hardly believe what he saw when he tore open the envelope at his mailbox.He looked again and again and then ran and tripped his way to his house to share the good news. The junior, who took the test May 4, is characteristically modest about his accomplishments, chalking up the perfect 1600 to "a bit of luck."

When Steven and Mary Lynn Lakin purchased their two-story Colonial-style home in Gambrills 12 years ago, they didn't see it as a longtime residence. "I thought we were one house away from 'the one,' but as it turns out, we've lived here longer than we ever thought we would," said Steven Lakin, president of a construction trade association. Plans change all the time, and the Lakins are proof of that. "And so, we decided many years ago to make this house the home we always wanted - [and]

Here's a restaurant with some sharp ideas about how a French bistro should behave when it's in 21st-century Hampden - be just French enough, without being too French. Le Garage opened last month in the site where The Dogwood restaurant had its valiant run. The space, which sits below street level, has never been considered an asset, but what the operators of Le Garage have done is rather cunning. Instead of fighting their location, they've exploited the space to create an environment that feels secluded and cool, like a place for folks in the know.
