A little more than 20 years ago, Bridget Morris was set to embark on a career as an interior designer. But during a semester in Italy, papermaking and book restoration stole her away. She dropped out of Philadelphia University and returned to Cortona, Italy, for two years to study the craft. When she came back to Philadelphia, Morris worked from 1991 to 1996 at William H. Allen, Bookseller, on Walnut Street, toiling beneath a multicolored crystal chandelier on rare volumes in Greek and Latin.

THE MIAMI HEAT'S LeBron James got into the Halloween spirit by wearing a custom-made mouthguard sporting fangs while playing against the Magic on Friday night. Of course, there's now talk of the NBA handing out a ridiculous fine for such non-sanctioned behavior. That doesn't sit well with us or Bobbie Quinn, whose Philadelphia-based company, Sport Guard Inc., manufactured the custom mouthguard. "I'm a little distressed," Quinn said yesterday. "If [the mouthpiece] is not approved because it's flashy, well . . . I understand that.

Most businesspeople have to pay to get their advertising message out. Bernie Moeller has people clamoring to buy his ads from him. He's the proprietor and artist of Bernie's Tattooing, at the dead end of West Avenue in Bristol Township, and frankly he has never had much of a budget for advertising in 14 years in the business. "I just give out a few T-shirts and word-of-mouth. That's it," Bernie says. There's no way Bernie could avoid generating a lot of word-of-mouth, as a matter of fact, because he is a striking sight.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities. Anyone who comes across Harrison Township is quickly aware that it is more widely known as Mullica Hill. What about South Harrison Township? The less widely known Gloucester County community remains rural, with new construction on large lots, horse farms, roadside produce stands, and the Wagonhouse Winery - the only place allowed to sell alcohol in a historically "dry" town. By comparison, Harrison Township is "a metropolis," says Patricia Settar, an agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Fox & Roach Realtors in Mullica Hill, just a five-minute drive away.

Standing in her small kitchen, Kelly Adomsky closed her eyes and imagined emptying the dishwasher. She envisioned where her two boys would play as she cooked dinner. She thought about where she would entertain. To prepare for the renovation of her growing family's home, Adomsky, a stay-at-home mother and former advertising professional, thought about every detail. The 1,700-square-foot, three-bedroom ranch in Doylestown Township, which her husband, Jonathan, had bought before they were married, had issues.

ISSUE | KAPAROT Jewish tradition misrepresented While I am reluctant to be seen as supporting a custom that is in fact dismissed in the Code of Jewish Law ( Orach Chaim 605:1 ), as one that should not be practiced, I cannot overlook the vicious headline and misleading content of this letter ("A barbaric means of atonement," Monday). The custom, observed by some, of slaughtering a chicken and donating it to a poor family before the Day of Atonement is not a requirement of Jewish law. When observed, Jewish law requires that the chicken be treated humanely, as in the case of all animals slaughtered for kosher food.

The Civic Center management, in its infinite wisdom, has directed the custom-car, van and motorcycle show (as it was known) to eliminate motorcycles from the show. When this piece of information reached me I was immediately disappointed. My disappointment quickly changed to curiosity, so I called World of Wheels, which coordinates the show, and asked why. The answer was, "The Civic Center management does not want bikers at the show. " I do not like to be labeled a biker and discriminated against by some middle-management bureaucrat who does not know the difference between a custom-motorcycle hobbyist and a "biker.

C AROLYN BRANDHORST, 49, of Old City, recently relocated her family business, the Papery, from 3rd and Arch streets to Locust near 12th, after a decade. The new space, next to the restaurant Vedge, has enabled Brandhorst to reinvent the store as a custom-design studio for wedding and party invitations, in addition to the more-familiar retail aspects of stationery and gifts. Q: You moved the business to the trendy area now called Midtown Village. Why? A: Our business model changed and we became a custom-invitation studio, and the old store wasn't designed to keep up with the work.
