Cruise bookings have rebounded since Sept. 11. The reason, according to industry executives, is widespread discounting, calculated by the cruise lines to spur passengers back on board in the wake of the sharp and sudden downturn. When fares for some seven-day sailings dropped to $399, it was as if the Great Cruise Motivator kicked in. "People overcame their fears," Carnival president Bob Dickin-son told colleagues at Seatrade, the annual state-of-the-industry conference held in March.

Radhika Sule, who sells freshly prepared Indian food under the Rustic Gourmet banner at area farmers' markets, confirms that she'll be moving into the Soup's On space on the Avenue in Hampden. The opening date is planned for Aug. 15. Sule says that the storefront cafe will operate under a new name -- The Verandah . I told Sule that "veranda" -- from the Urdu or Hindi, acrcording to Merriam-Webster -- was one of the prettiest words in the English language. She said that's why she chose it.

As reported July 5, 1907, in The Sun: Governor Warfield spent the Fourth at his country home, Oakdale, Howard county. He had with him all of his family except his second daughter, who is at school in Paris. Oakdale is a beautiful place, and the Governor enjoyed his day greatly. In the morning he took a ride over his estate and after dinner spent the afternoon on his veranda. He will come to Baltimore today. [ Paul McCardell, Sun library researcher.]

WHEN WE ADDED a deck on our little house, upon which to enjoy our pre-dinner martinis, my wife insisted we call the new addition a veranda, on grounds that one may guzzle beer on a deck, but one sips martinis on a veranda. In any case the new veranda is a joy until late summer or early fall. Then come the yellow jackets, nature's prime party poopers, threatening us like the Tontons Macoutes until we yield the territory and flee for cover.Resentful at having been driven indoors, we, in desperation, buzzed over to our local farm and garden store and bought a yellow jacket trap.

The most impressive thing you can say about "China Moon" is that it cares enough to steal from the very best.The movie, with minor adjustments, is a virtual tracing of Lawrence Kasdan's dazzlingly provocative and amusing "Body Heat" of 12 years ago, Kasdan's first movie and still the best thing he's ever done."

In last Sunday's Travel section, the phone number of Van Scoy's Restaurant in Cape May, N.J., was incorrect. The correct phone number is (609) 898-9898. Also, Van Scoy's does not charge a corking or setup fee for wine bottles.The Sun regrets the errors.There's a mid-Atlantic resort that's as American as apple pie and as sophisticated as New York. And it's got a beach that's as broad as its hospitality is gracious. It is Cape May, N.J., and if you haven't been there yet, you ought to go. This is a beach town that's truly different from the rest.

On my first cruise, I was thrilled to have an outside cabin with a small porthole that provided a patch of natural light and a glimpse of cobalt sea. On my last cruise, I griped because my private veranda was not large enough to accommodate all four chaises I insisted the steward set out so my husband and I could lounge al fresco with two new friends we had met on board. What a difference five years makes. Once a rare amenity of only the ritziest ships' most expensive cabins, private balconies have become commonplace on every cruise line's newest offspring.

Twenty years ago, Kevin Kelly ended his paid tour of Houmas House by tossing a quarter into a wishing well fashioned from a huge, sugar-cane syrup kettle. "I wished that one day I'd own a plantation," Kelly recalled. Wishes do come true. Kelly, a 48-year-old bachelor from New Orleans, has done well in shipping and real estate. Last May, he returned to Houmas House and bought the 21-room Greek Revival mansion in Darrow, La. Another of the grand old houses of the Deep South was saved.

"This is a custom-built home [where] the grandeur is in the detail - the trim work, the arched entries, wainscoting, dentil molding, two staircases and two wood-burning fireplaces.
