EVERY YEAR promptly on the dot of the summer solstice, we bookish folk put down Balzac, Hawthorne, Ivan Turgenev and Virginia Woolf and pick up our summer reading, and this year my summer reading has left me tickled pink.Yes, obviously I've read and been bewitched by "Tickled Pink," Maggie Maxwell's ingenious self-help book on how to cultivate gloriously glowing summer skin color now that we all know sunburn is even grimmer news than sidestream smoke. Maxwell's "299 ways to tickle like a pro" include a few that may make you blush if you're not a regular TV fiend or moviegoer, but as the book roguishly notes, "Nobody ever got skin cancer from a blush."

Could the prolonged crisis over North Korea's nuclear policy be the catalyst to eventual reunification of the peninsula? This enticing prospect, once as seemingly remote as the fall of the Berlin Wall, arises from South Korea's offer to build two light-water reactors for its neighbor to the north as its part of the U.S. effort to choke off North Korea's atomic bomb-making potential.The agreement, announced over the past weekend, held out the promise that North Korea might seal the nuclear reprocessing facility now the focus of U.S. concern in return for outside help in securing a transitional fuel supply and the construction of more modern, less dangerous nuclear power plants.

As I was puttering around the kitchen one morning last week, putting breakfast dishes in the dishwasher and wiping up crumbs up from the table, I noticed a fluttering of dark wings.I raised my head and looked at our patio through the floor-to-ceiling windows we installed when we remodeled our house last year. The window framed a large flock of birds as they darted into the branches of the large red maple, which adds a magnificent swath of color to our backyard in the fall but looks barren and forlorn in winter.

As in many places where the water meets the land, life around Annapolis can be a pretty pricey affair. A political hub, a maritime magnet, an academic center for the nation's military and a tourist playground for much of the year, Annapolis draws the well-heeled and the disposable income that comes with them as flames draw moths.

NEW YORK -- Aiming to "wow" millions of computer users, Microsoft Corp. launched its Vista operating system for consumers yesterday with a series of flashy Manhattan events and midnight sales at stores around the world. Two months after arriving for business customers, the first major Windows upgrade in more than five years promises consumers a slicker 3-D look, improved security and search tools, and a host of multimedia and entertainment features. While promoted by Microsoft executives as an enormous step forward, many reviewers have been more reserved, calling Vista better than the current XP system and full of subtle improvements, but not a revolutionary advance.

Tom Peters has asked several colleagues to guest-author his column while he is traveling abroad. This is the third of five guest columns. Mr. Peters will return later this month.Your daughters are at risk. Your sons are, too, though in different ways. But until the American Association of University Women published its report ("How Schools Shortchange Girls") and the Ms. Foundation urged everyone to "take them to work," girls got precious little attention.Consider this: 40 percent of teen-age girls will get pregnant at least once before the age of 20. The school dropout rate for teen-age girls in urban centers is often as high as 60 percent.
