Living in the shadow of the Naval Academy chapel, Ellis Richman and his wife, Dr. Ingrid Kohlstadt, are exactly where they want to be - nestled in the heart of historic Annapolis. Theirs is no ordinary house among a bevy of notable properties. Woven into the rich tapestry of Colonial architecture that marks Maryland's capital city landscape are the grande dames of Queen Anne-style homes erected in the Victorian era. The couple owns one of a twin pair of homes built in the early 1890s by lumber and hardware merchant Joseph S.M. Basil.

On a Saturday morning in December, well before the sun was up, 3-year-old Bobby Mercado was up and ready to go. His destination: the North Pole. First came the long drive to Washington Dulles International Airport, a ride which, despite light traffic, seemed to take forever. As Bobby and his parents, Jean and Robert Mercado, approached the airport, a series of three large flashing signs directed them - as well as other children who were arriving - to special parking for the North Pole flight.

Janice O'Donnell watched the number on her screen climb and climb and climb. And when she couldn't watch any more, there were text messages from friends asking if she was watching. By the end of the day, close to $50,000 had poured in through the Chive Charities campaign set up to benefit her 2-year-old-daughter, Addyson, who was born with spina bifida. "I basically spent the entire day crying," O'Donnell said. She had expected maybe a couple thousand dollars, at the most.

I was not prepared for the sheer candlepower of Harbor East when I went in search of some early Christmas spirit this week. Moving along Albemarle Street, where the holiday lights burned hot and bright, I made some mental comparisons with the old Howard Street and its department stores. Hands down, Harbor East outperformed the staid department stores. The place had a nighttime energy - and the circle at President Street reminded me of a kind of Times Square bustle. The traffic was maddening but there was no getting away from the reality that this part of downtown Baltimore is an authentic December destination.

On the surface, Matt Hauser was an Army fan, wearing a black-and-camouflage jersey and rooting for the home team at the annual Army-Navy flag football matchup at Fort Meade. But like many Marylanders, he has deep respect for Navy, too. Lifting his Army jersey, he revealed a blue Navy jersey underneath. Even in flag football, Army-Navy is "a nice rivalry," said Hauser, a Severn insurance agent who helped organize a tailgate party for Thursday's game. But there's more to it, he said.
