Blue Eyes, the Rat Pack-style supper club in Sewell, Washington Township, has updated its lunch menu and added a patio bar. Executive chef Ian Palagye, who was trained at the Culinary Institute of America and noted Philadelphia and South Jersey restaurants, felt the four-year-old steak house needed a bit more variety. About three weeks ago, he added coconut shrimp with pork-fried rice; pan-seared veal diablo; fiesta salad with a made-to-order shell and Cajun dressing, and shrimp salad in a grilled pita.

Seven-year-old Tom has blue eyes, strawberry blond hair and a toy guitar. It seems as much a part of him as his freckles. And he plays it and happily sings along whenever the musical mood hits him. His interests include swimming in a pool, riding a bike in the driveway, drawing, coloring and playing board games. He also enjoys climbing on the monkey bars, sledding, singing in the church choir, helping make snowmen, building with Legos, and planting daffodils and corn. Tom receives therapy to help him deal with feelings of loss and the effects of abuse and neglect, and to prepare him for adoption.

They'll listen. And at last, another local radio station is listening. Later this month, Sid Mark's "Sundays with Sinatra" and "Fridays with Frank" programs will be returning to the Philadelphia airwaves, via WPHT (1210 AM). They were dropped Nov. 6 when WWDB-FM changed formats, leaving listeners bereft. Urging that some other station pick up the popular programs, we invited readers to write, saying "I'll listen. " This is a partial list of responses (hundreds are still pouring in)

From the living rooms of South Philadelphia to the sidewalks outside a Los Angeles hospital suite, the prayers of long-smitten bobby-soxers are with Ol' Blue Eyes today. Francis Albert Sinatra is gravely ill, according to some reports from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. At least one report said that he was being treated for heart failure and pneumonia and that his hospital room resembled an intensive-care unit. While his family remained silent about the saloon singer's condition, thousands of fans around the world prayed for his recovery.

Ah, but you suspected it was more than a mere pinched nerve, didn't you? Frank Sinatra's daughter Nancy has confirmed that the 80-year-old singer has indeed been fighting pneumonia in Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but adds that her dad is now feeling better. Nancy made her comments to Daily Variety after visiting her father at the hospital late Monday. When Sinatra was admitted to Cedars-Sinai on Friday, both his flack and the hospital's denied he was suffering from anything but the pinched nerve - and they offered no explanation when his stay was extended beyond the weekend.

Mikey Pies was thinking of Frank yesterday, singing "The Lady is a Tramp" as he flung the dough for a large pepperoni pizza high into the air at Marra's Restaurant. The self-proclaimed best pie-man in South Philly dedicated his latest creation to Ol' Blue Eyes. Former chorus girl Diane was thinking of Frank, too, as she nursed a vodka at Kathleen's Cafe and remembered her conversations in Atlantic City with the skinny crooner who sang as smooth as the Johnny Walker Black he liked to drink all those years ago. And Millie Amicone had Frank very much on the brain as she and her family ate a birthday cake she bought for the singer, a tradition she started when Sinatra celebrated his 25th birthday 55 years ago. In South Philly yesterday, Frank Sinatra's 80th birthday qualified as a local holiday as Italian Americans honored a working-class paisano who saw what he wanted in life and grabbed it. "It's pretty much the conversation down here," said Vince Litrenta, manager of Marra's and Mikey Pies' boss.

A crime is committed by a gang that apparently believes in ethnic diversity. Police issue descriptions of the suspects: a white, a black, and a Hispanic. A what? In most cases, a victim who gets a halfway decent look at the assailant can tell whether he (or she) was white or black. But what does a Hispanic look like? There is no universal Hispanic "look. " This is something not well understood in this country, where both Hispanics and non-Hispanics make easy assumptions about the way Hispanics are supposed to appear.

Question: What causes the iris of the eye to change color? For most of my life, my iris color in each eye was dark brown. When I was in my 50s, the color began to lighten. I'm now 62, and the iris color is hazel, a mix of brown and green. Also, my father's eyes slowly changed from hazel to pale blue by the time he was in his 70s. Answer: The color of our eyes is based on the number and color of pigment granules (melanin) in our iris. These granules range in color from nearly colorless to dark brown.

Romance, comedy, drama, action - Michael Ealy has played it all during his eclectic career in film ( Barbershop , Underworld: Awakening , Think Like a Man ) and on TV ( Sleeper Cell , The Good Wife , Common Law ). But he never thought his greatest acting challenge would be as a robot. Then again, Dorian, his character on Fox's buzzed-about new series Almost Human , has some unusual dimensions for an automaton. Almost Human is a futuristic (2047, to be exact)

Beirut-born Michael Penniman - Mika to you - might not seem the dream of teen lasses and sorority girls. He's high-pitched, slight-of-build, and makes exuberant music that's an au courant, hit-making encapsulation of all things Glam Rock and fussily British (Sparks, Elton). Yet, there he was - all snug-fitting tux and tight curls - thrilling an all-ages crowd of gals and the boys who love them during a sold-out show at Union Transfer Monday in what was billed as an "intimate evening with . . . " What that meant was that his usually crowded stage and busy arrangements were stripped down to just Mika trilling theatrically and hammering piano, with instrumentalist/vocalists along for the bumpy ride.

Billy's hand in hers. It's what Jill Jones remembers best about her big brother, a half-century after they went to play outside their Vineland home - and he disappeared. On that chilly morning of Dec. 17, 1962, William Ebenezer Jones wore a blue-gray snowsuit, a matching hat, and tan high-tops with yellow laces. He had blue eyes, big ears, and a vaccination scar shaped like a giraffe on his upper left arm. He loved dogs and was three months away from his fourth birthday. When Billy didn't return to the house at 302 Taylor Ave. that he shared with his parents and two younger siblings, hundreds of police, firefighters, National Guard troops, and volunteers searched for days on foot, by boat and by air. The missing boy became a national news story and stunned the city in Cumberland County.

Sixty-seven years did not blot out the searing memories of the Battle of Okinawa for World War II infantryman Montraville "Monte" Lybrand. He held his hand to his quivering chin, bowed his head, and whispered, "You always remember the ones that didn't make it. " With blue eyes welling up, he waited for composure. "I was with them for such a short period of time," he finally managed to say. "We were buddies. " Over the decades, Lybrand, of Drexel Hill, rarely spoke of his experience in one of the war's bloodiest episodes, dispensing his fighting past only in "little bits and pieces," said his oldest daughter, Kathleen Murtaugh.

The television show Game of Thrones has nothing on William Shakespeare's own game of thrones, King John . As if there weren't excitement enough in watching Europe's monarchs and royal mothers jockey for power while the Vatican pulls their strings, the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival ups the ante with a production based on the play's "original practice. " This means the company went about the show the way it's presumed its original performers would have. PSF handed its performers a script crisply edited by Patrick Mulcahy and Erin Hurley, gave them four days of rehearsal, told them to find their own costumes, figure out the lighting, make do with whatever set happened to be available (its craggy cliffs belong to The Tempest )

THIS COLUMN was originally intended to be a mild defense of the dad who stuck his baby boy in a washing machine in Camden, but then I found out he wasn't the kid's dad and I kept picturing my daughter stuck in a spin cycle, soapy tears stinging her pretty blue eyes. It sort of evolved into something more complicated after that. I do "dumb" things with my boys all the time — 100 feet in the air on a zip line in Mexico, where safety was lost in translation, or in my basement where we hunt crickets with the Red Ryder BB gun (yes, with goggles)

It's only Kyleigh Cheyenne Stich's first Christmas, but whatever gifts the years to come place under her tree, it's unlikely any will come close to 2011. Eleven-month-old Kyleigh, of Levittown, got the best present a little girl could hope for: Her dad. Staff Sgt. Jeffrey Stich Jr. was one of 15 National Guard airmen flown home Tuesday in time for the holidays. Members of the 108th Security Forces Squadron stationed in Iraq since July, the airmen were reunited with their families at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in two separate arrivals.
