DUBLIN, Ireland -- The affair had all the makings of a first-class scandal: In a quiet corner of rural Ireland, a 73-year-old Roman Catholic priest admitted to fathering a child last year with a local schoolteacher. Smelling a good story, television crews rolled into the village of Woodford, in County Galway, and tabloid newspapers gleefully denounced "Father Romeo."

You further endorse his good character by referring to him as a high-profile, outspoken conservative whom Democrats delight in criticizing.

They hang chandeliers, choose fabrics and roll out rugs. This year, that home -- site of the 23rd Decorator Show House -- is Woodford Farm, an 1880s structure on 140 acres off Old Frederick Road in western Howard County. Visitors can pick up design ideas and buy furnishings starting Saturday when the show house opens to the public.
