Can you believe it? Just when we need it most, there may be a shortage of Velveeta. The marigold-colored cheese product that melts so smoothly may be missing from your grocer's shelves - it doesn't require refrigeration - just as the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl loom. Football fans are facing a dip crisis. An enterprising reporter for Advertising Age magazine discovered the possibility of a Velveeta shortage when customers noticed there wasn't any to be had in a couple of East Coast grocery stores.

The other night the kids and I made fudge with Velveeta in it.Why? Well, it was a dull Monday night. Mom was away, so it was an all-guy meal. But the main reason was the challenge. It had not been done before. At least not in our house.How was the Velveeta fudge? In a word, bouncy. In two words, not bad. In three words, not terrific either.When I announced that Velveeta fudge was on the evening menu, the kids reacted with skepticism. Like most people who attempt to feed children, I was accustomed to having my cooking questioned.

Dianne Bernsten from Baltimore was looking for a recipe for making pub cheese similar to one she remembers from the Hilltop Inn and Lounge in Bowie many years ago. She said she has tried several store-bought versions over the years and has not liked any. The Web is full of pub cheese recipes, the majority of which start with processed cheese like Velveeta as a base, but a recipe for a homemade Irish cheddar and ale pub spread that I came...

There's probably little Britney Spears can do to reverse the damage done to her image. The glorious, teasingly sexy bubble in which she floated a decade ago has long since burst. Her madhouse life, as covered by the ravenous pop press, has all but obliterated Spears' relevance as a recording star. Last year was especially rough for the former teen-pop phenom. Not long after her fumbling lip-sync performance of "Gimme More" on the MTV Video Music Awards, she was institutionalized and lost custody of her baby boys.

Only in Baltimore could a guy try to sell a woman a potted plant she already owns. That's just a hunch. I suppose it could happen in other cities -- Cleveland comes to mind, for some reason -- but I have this feeling that what happened in Fells Point the other day was, shall we say, unique. After all, Fells Point is where police once arrested a man with 21 stolen pigeons in his pants, and where else on earth has such a thing ever happened? So, call me crazy, but I'm sure it will be the next century before a guy shows up at lunch with a stolen palm.

Coming to the new Playwrights Theatre of Baltimore in May: the world premiere of "All Dressed Up And Nowhere To Go," a comedy by Catherine Filloux. Here's a synopsis: "Filloux's play, transpiring over the course of a snowbound night at a Buffalo, N.Y., motel, examines a chance encounter between the world of cross-dressing and the world of the Amish." I know it sounds predictable -- yet another play about the age-old struggle for identity and acceptance -- but I'll take a chance with a ticket to this one.To know the unknownSharp-eyed readers Mary Pat Massarelli and Marcia Simonetta spotted an interesting classified in The Sun last Friday: "ANYONE knowing the whereabouts of Bryson White whose last known address is unknown, please contact.

Nell Evans of Aberdeen was looking for the recipe for the onion soup served at Outback Steakhouse. He said the last time he ate there he was told the restaurant was not going to have the soup anymore. He was hoping someone would have the recipe so that he could make it for himself at home. Susan Fees of Port Carbon, Pa., sent in a recipe for Outback Steakhouse walkabout soup that she thinks may be the one Evans is looking for. She said it comes from a book she has that features popular copycat recipes from many chain restaurants.
