Most people lump "Next Stop Wonderland" together with romantic destiny comedies like "Sleepless in Seattle" and "Sliding Doors," but it also shares important characteristics with another hit comedy. With its portrait of an eminently eligible young woman walking through a minefield of dreadful suitors, "Next Stop Wonderland" is also part of the emerging Single Woman Follies genre that includes "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" and the more popular "There's Something About Mary. " The latter stars Cameron Diaz as a bubbly blonde physician pursued by a series of pathetic and devious men, whom she fends off with the same chirpy enthusiasm.

Imagine a household of eight youngsters under the age of 18, six of whom play soccer, and you have a picture of the Handforth family in West Bradford. "Soccer balls, cleats, shin guards everywhere," recalled Winnie Handforth, the mother of all these soccer siblings. "We even live in a wooded area, and there are soccer balls everywhere. You walk in our woods, you're stepping over soccer balls. " Over the last several years, the chaos has thinned out for the Handforths, as four of the children have graduated from Bishop Shanahan and gone to college, and the two youngest aren't entirely engrossed in the sport.

Upper Providence Police Chief Edmund Fenyus, a 26-year-veteran who first walked into the bedroom of the condominium on Meadow View Lane in Montclare, Montgomery County, speaks of the case in a voice that is uncharacteristically quiet.

Erin (Hope Davis) and Andre (Jose Zuniga) meet in a hospital - she's a nurse, he's getting a shot - and discover a shared passion for bossa nova. He's a charming Brazilian, she's a pretty Bostonian recently dumped by her flaky activist boyfriend. So Andre tells Erin how his country's music can be sad and happy at the same time, how that is its special beauty. And that's what's special, too, about Next Stop Wonderland: this low-key tale of a woman searching for love - or for the strength to live contentedly without love - is sad and happy in equal doses.

Little Erin Jacobs wears a plastic shield over her abdomen, takes three organ-transplant anti-rejection drugs, and constantly gets checkups. Despite these and other precautions, the kidney that Erin - who lost both of her own - received from her father could fail at any time. Nevertheless, said Rick Jacobs of Jeffersonville, Montgomery County, Erin is doing well. "She's alive, and that's all we care about. " Six years old now, Erin was 3 when she nearly died from a case of E. coli contracted after a pre-Halloween 2000 trip to the Merrymead Farm petting zoo. Jacobs, 39, and his wife, Trish, 36, never will forget Erin crying out: "Mommy, my tummy hurts.

Timing is not everything, but it matters. Perfectly good relationships fizzle when her biological clock is out of sync with his career. And just as often, an unlikely match will jell when the stars are aligned. For Erin Gallagher and Robert Melissen, the time was right. "I didn't want to date anymore," said Rob, 28. And he hadn't - for nearly two years. Erin, 26, said her big brothers were always critical of the guys she brought home. "I was fed up with dating," she said.

With each album since 1999's Monday Morning Cold , Erin McKeown has crafted folk music with a twist. Her genre-jumping sounds increasingly have been enriched by country swing, Dixieland, conjunto, and bossa nova arrangements. And on 2013's Manifestra , her smartly lyrical songs had new, stronger political content. McKeown's is an elegant yet aggressive conversational voice, with a passion and poise that truly stood out during her packed-tight night at the Tin Angel on Friday.

That summer day in 2010, Erin wore scrubs, a surgical hat, and a mask. All he could see were her eyes. Still, a small part of Raymond's brain thought, "Who is that ?"

In theory, U.S. equities offer more return than U.S. government bonds. But, wow, does it feel scary investing in the stock market these days. The companies making up the Standard & Poor's 500 index are throwing off an earnings yield that is quite high relative to the return on bonds; by this measure, stocks are inexpensive compared with fixed income. Professional investors sometimes compare these two ratios — the earnings yield of the stock market and the yield on the 10-year Treasury bond — to determine which is undervalued or overvalued.

Think college tuition is going to continue to go up? One way to capitalize on the trend is by investing in municipal bonds linked to universities. That's a way to profit from the cost of a pricey higher education. Investors worldwide are searching for income ideas and are returning to municipal bonds after the 2008 credit crisis and a default headline scare in 2011. But according to recent research by Moody's credit-rating agency, muni bonds defaulted at a significantly lower rate than corporate bonds — even through both crisis periods.

The risks of owning natural-gas stocks in your portfolio flared with the recent news that Chesapeake Energy's chairman had taken out more than $1 billion in undisclosed loans using company wells as his collateral. Natural gas has proved a frustrating conundrum for investors. For years, the prices of natural gas and crude oil traded together — both up and down. But that tandem relationship broke down in late 2008. Oil prices skyrocketed to more than $100 a barrel, but natural gas plummeted roughly 45 percent just this year, to $2 per MBtu (1,000 Btus)

We all dream about it - but what if it actually happened? What if, like those winners of the $656 million Mega Millions lottery, we actually had to wonder now what to do with the money? What financial planners and people of means advise is that lottery tickets are just that - a lucky win. But there are real issues associated with planning for a sudden windfall. The Mega Millions winners will now be targets of both legitimate and illegitimate financial advisers, says securities attorney Andrew Stoltmann, who has represented lottery winners who have been defrauded out of the entire amount.
