HEARTS, FLOWERS and candy may be the familiar gifts of Valentine's Day, but not the only ones a group of area women had in mind this year. Love and caring was the message spoken with each bud vase of flowers arranged and delivered by members of Sheen's Colleens of St. Joseph's Catholic Community yesterday and Sunday to residents of area nursing homes and retirement communities. Some members of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus (Sheen's Colleens) spent most of Saturday gathering supplies, making bows and filling about 400 bud vases with flowers for residents of more than a half a dozen nursing home facilities in South Carroll.

She would finish six hours later when her husband left for work."This is a way to make a person psychotic," she thought.

Velveteen RabbitNo, it's not a toy shop, although there are a couple of antique dolls in the window. And it's not a children's bookstore. The Velveteen Rabbit is Baltimore's newest antique stop, and one of the few in the area that sells antiques and quality reproductions side by side.Owner Tina Protzman's slogan is "Beautiful Pieces at Beautiful Prices," so don't expect to find $4,000 vases here. She says, "If I wouldn't buy it at that price, I don't carry it."Her tastes are traditional; most of the furniture is mahogany or cherry.

There are people who toil in the clouds. Movie stars. Celebrities. And there are people who toil close to the earth. And they are no less miraculous than all the others.I went to Toby's Dinner Theater in Columbia the other day to watch a production of "The Velveteen Rabbit" that was being put on for a group of Howard County sixth graders. The show is part of the theater's youth series, which is in the midst of its second annual run.Exposing young people to the theater is a little like taking a Golden Retriever to a pond full of geese.

YOU COULD call Albert Belle the best right-handed hitter in baseball and not get an argument. You could call him studious, focused and on the fast track to the Hall of Fame, and still -- no argument.But if you were to call him a humanitarian, a lover of kids, and a man with a keen sense of right and wrong, you would likely be handed a one-way pass to St. Elizabeth's Hospital.Understanding Belle, the Orioles volatile new right-fielder and baseball's most productive offensive player during the 1990s, is one of the great mysteries of modern sports psychology.

Instead of asking how many times Jack went up the beanstalk, and what he brought down, teachers at Charles Carroll Elementary School might be more likely to ask a deeper question.For example, why did Jack make the climb more than once?The difference between the questions is that the first two have only one right answer, and all you have to do is reread the story to find it, said Robert Bruce, principal.But there is not just one answer to why Jack went up more than once. And to come up with a response, the child has to think for a while and find some passage to justify the conclusion, Mr. Bruce said.

Mark Sottnick has directed some of the biggest names in Hollywood: Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Cher, Sir John Gielgud, Jeremy Irons, Robin Williams, Glenn Close, Jodie Foster, Danny Glover, Kelly McGillis, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathleen Turner, Michael Caine.And he's seen a side of them that most film directors never see."It's very funny and it's been a privilege to watch them act," says Sottnick, who heads up Rabbit Ears Productions, a little, Connecticut-based company whose audio and video tapes feature the voices of said luminaries, re-enacting fairy tales and storybook classics.
