IT JUST WASN'T a good night to have the spotlight thrust upon them. Now that the Eagles' season is over, it would figure the 76ers could garner this city's sports attention now, right? After all, they had won four consecutive games going into last night, all on the road, the last coming against Western Conference powerhouse Portland. Only natural for the eyes to turn to the red, white and blue. OK, so that's overdoing it, but the recent winning streak did bring about some curious talk from the home fans, and what else are you going to do on a cold Monday night (except maybe watch that BCS title-game thing)

SOME EAGLES FANS egged the Washington Redskins team bus as it pulled into Lincoln Financial Field yesterday. It was, for the national media, a softball they predictably smacked out of the park. CBSSports.com gleefully reported the following: They don't just boo Santa Claus or flip off the opposing team, but Eagles fans reportedly have tried to physically harm the Redskins on Sunday. Or, at the very least, the Redskins bus. Not to be outdone, Yardbarker.com posted this little gem: The infamous Philly fan has struck again.

For developer Brad Haber, Neighborhoods of Cedar Creek in Egg Harbor City represents both a change from what he's used to and a chance to follow the advice that veteran builders gave him when he started 35 years ago. The change? Instead of being part of a big home-building company - he was, until 2007, a K. Hovnanian vice president for South Jersey - the Cherry Hill native is constructing pretty much on his own what will be 400 homes on 423 acres surrounding the three-year-old, 87-acre Cedar Creek High School complex.

The first time Andrew Botwin said "Daddy," his mother gulped. Was this the moment Shari Botwin had anguished about ever since deciding, at age 38, to have a baby on her own? Was this the time to begin explaining about "choice mommies" and "donor daddies"? But Andrew didn't seem worried, Botwin recalled. He wasn't asking a question. He was trying out the new word with a 2-year-old's exuberance, the same way he yelps "Dora!" while watching television or "broccoli!" when naming his favorite foods.

Kari Warberg Block calls it her day of reckoning - the day 10 years ago she realized she had saved nothing for retirement. "I started thinking about all the money that had run through my hands over the years, millions of dollars," said Block, owner of Earth-Kind, a manufacturer of rat and mice repellent. "I was sick to my stomach. " For many entrepreneurs, the golden years aren't looking so shiny. They have devoted so much time and money to their businesses that they have failed to plan for their retirement.

The yellow-spotted green turtle that sparked mayhem this week on a Jersey Shore route may have left its home in the woods because of recent heavy rains or because of a strong nesting instinct. Or it might have just had a hankering for something different to eat. Area wildlife officials, science professors, and researchers offered insight Friday into the secret lives of the turtles that usually inhabit burrows and ponds, but that sometimes cause three-car crashes. After the turtle wandered onto Route 30 in Atlantic County on Wednesday afternoon, a line of traffic on the busy four-lane highway swerved and then came to a crawl.

Bonjour, mes petits lecteurs! Let's make a pact up front: If I resist the urge to make a preening bon mot about Proust in this prologue, you have to promise not to gripe about how this recipe, without exception, requires the purchase of a special pan. (A mini-muffin tin might produce something, but they will not be madeleines.) Deal? Magnifique! With that out of the way, we can move on to just why delicate, fragrant, consummately charming madeleines should become part of your baking repertoire.

After falling behind by two goals early, the Egg Harbor Township boys' lacrosse team rallied to make school history. Sal Avellino tallied the game-winner with 44 seconds left to lift eighth-seeded Egg Harbor over No. 9 Howell, 6-5, in the first round of the South Jersey Group 4 playoffs Saturday.

In another Group 4 game, Tim Corn stopped 20 shots for Rancocas Valley, but the No. 11 Red Devils lost to sixth-seeded Monroe Township, 10-3.

A luxurious breakfast in bed is a long-standing Mother's Day tradition. It rates higher than an orchid corsage, or brunch in a crowded restaurant sipping a flat mimosa. We prefer home cooking, anyway. Over the years we've each made many breakfasts for our own mothers, and our lovely daughters have paid us back in kind - the beat goes on. As it always has, going back to ancient Egypt, when spring festivals honored the female deities and maternal goddesses, symbols of rebirth and motherhood.
