Thanks to the generosity of a friend and colleague, my son Nick and I recently came into a rather nice train set. I hesitate to refer to the railroad paraphernalia as toys, though that's exactly what it is for Nick and I, because model railroading is a serious, substantial and year round hobby for a lot of people.

ATLANTA -- Monaco's Prince Albert, the only athlete on the 101-member International Olympic Committee, called yesterday for a lifetime ban for athletes who test positive for banned substances.The prince, a bobsledder who competed in the 1988, 1992 and 1994 Winter Games and who is vice chairman of the IOC's athletes commission, also admonished the IOC over its efforts at doping control, saying, "We don't need so many parties; we should have more drug tests."His remarks came on the same day that FINA, swimming's world governing body, announced the two-year suspensions of five more swimmers who tested positive for dehydrotestosterone, a performance-enhancing steroid, at the Asian Games this past October in Hiroshima, Japan.

WE ARE not amused," said Queen Victoria. She only said it to send Prince Albert right up the wall. "You know I can't stand it when you lay that royal we on me," said Prince Albert."It is not our fault, dear Albert, that we are a royal we whilst you, being a mere prince consort, are but an I," observed Queen Victoria.Poor vexed Albert knew what un-amused her. It was baseball. Prince Albert's passion for baseball was a royal scandal. It had shocked drawing rooms from Belgravia to Cowes, where the regatta was held, as Queen Victoria had to remind Prince Albert every time she said, "You and we must rise and go to Cowes now."

Princess Caroline danced in public for the first time in 22 months (yes, someone really keeps a record of these things) at last week's star-studded Red Cross Ball in Monaco. Caroline, 35, had been shunning jet-set galas since her husband, Stefano Casiraghi, was killed in a powerboat accident in October 1990.While Caroline was spotted dancing only with her brother, Prince Albert, she was seen talking to two men who surely have done a two-step in their day -- Gregory Peck and Frank Sinatra, the latter, of course, gracing the fund-raiser with a rendition of "My Way."
