Hello there In 2008, Wednesdays were CJ's favorite day of the week. He was a medical case manager at Mazzoni Center, a health center for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people - the same place Alison did mental-health assessments for those beginning hormone treatment. Usually, CJ and Alison worked in separate buildings. On Wednesdays, they shared an office. CJ would tell Alison he needed to talk about a client, even when he had the needed info. "It was a convenient way to follow her around, like a little puppy," he admits.

EACH SPRING, Louise Clemente grabs a pail of white paint and gets to work, touching up all that time and the salty Sea Isle City air has stripped away from a beloved gazebo in her back yard by the bay. Her brush traces over the intricate gingerbread, around the glass panels she painstakingly etched with images of Sea Isle's past, and over the many names along the ceiling, the people who supported her effort to build a monument to all the memories,...

AQUEBOGUE, N.Y. - It started with an ad on Craigslist: Free holiday on an organic farm on Long Island, work for your keep, and enjoy wineries and great beaches nearby. The farm would even supply transportation from New York City and bicycles to get around once you arrive. All a friend and I had to do was take the subway to a farmer's market in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, and a van would pick us up. The entire experience wouldn't cost a penny. I suspected it was all too good to be true.

It was springtime in Camden yesterday, in an Alice-in-Wonderland sort of way. Azaleas and rhododendrons had sprouted on Riverside Drive, where four girls were planting ivy on a large dog and where a stack of musical notes sat by a half-bridge to nowhere. Outside the greenhouses at the Camden Children's Garden, a truck already contained a brightly colored gazebo and the other half of the bridge. Tomorrow it will head for the Pennsylvania Convention Center, where the Philadelphia Flower Show opens next weekend.

Everything today in residential construction revolves around lifestyle. And that has redefined a lot of jobs in the building industry. "Architects have the opportunity to do more than just the housing stock . . . within communities, because what people are coming for has more to do with lifestyle that's offered than with what kind of houses there are there," said Donald F. Evans of the Evans Group Inc. in Orlando, Fla. "Sometimes," he...

Convenience and quality of maintenance get high points from residents of Echelon Glen Apartments in Voorhees. In addition, the 30-plus-year-old complex offers a variety of unit styles, and an abundance of recreational amenities. "It's convenient to everything," said Sheryll Hill, 53, an office manager for Cooper Health System, who moved to the complex with her grown daughter about a year ago. "It's not far from my job, [and it's] close to the market, the mall, and to transportation.

On a chilly Wednesday morning three weeks ago, two Lancaster County men started knocking apart a $4,000 chunk of Jenkintown's beloved town-square gazebo and carting it away. They were there to settle a debt. "It had a slate roof, and we couldn't take it all down. That's what we wanted to do," said Chet Beiler, whose Amish Country Gazebos built the new borough centerpiece last summer. The builder, acknowledging that he held the lumber hostage "in a safe place," restored the one-of-a-kind $29,000 gazebo to its former elegance last weekend - barely in time to calm outraged borough leaders, who were urging the Montgomery County prosecutor to file criminal charges, and a detective threatening the park's general contractor with jail.
