Hello there In July 2000, Patti took a marketing job at Burns Engineering Inc. in Philadelphia. Just a few yards and a drafting table away were the cubicles inhabited by the aeronautical electrical engineers, including one she found especially intriguing: Jeff May. In a predominantly male office, the women stuck together. It wasn't long before Patti confided her crush to the others, and they began plotting happy hours on days when Jeff had no late meetings. "There was a sting operation," said Patti.

DEAR ABBY: My fiancé and I plan to be married in the coming year. It will be the second marriage for both of us. My intended has an "adult" son I'll call "Jeff," who graduated from college last year and makes good money. His father has helped him out by paying his tuition, car loan, rent, a generous allowance and various other loans that have never been repaid. Jeff comes up short almost every month because he blows his money on vacations, clothing, electronic gadgets, etc., so he needs $500 to $1,000 to "get on his feet.

JENNIFER SALVAGE'S wedding dress has racked up quite a few frequent-flier miles. Jennifer and her husband, Jeff, pack the dress - a white-stretched-lace-over-jersey number - on their treks across the globe. When the mood strikes, Jennifer goes into bride mode and puts on her wedding getup so Jeff can photograph her. Jeff has photographed Jennifer in her wedding dress in places ranging from New Zealand to China to Las Vegas and back again. The Medford, N.J., couple compiled these testaments of love - to travel and each other - in a book called One Dress, One Woman, One World . The Salvages, who have been married for three years, lust to wander.

When I lined up to run the Haddon Heights Firecracker 5K on Friday, I was in a costume of sorts: blue tank, blue shorts, and calf-high socks emblazoned with the Captain America symbol. It is not the best running outfit - the socks are cotton, which can lead to blisters, sweat-soaked socks, or both. The point was to dress in a patriotic theme, not break my personal record. It's the closest I've ever come to running a race in a costume. It was an attempt dwarfed by Jeff and Karen George LeClair of Princeton, who have won the Oddyssey Half Marathon costume competition four years in a row, in a June race in Philadelphia that's only five years old. "I wish we had known about the first year because we feel like we could have won it five years in a row," Jeff said.

A rusty horseshoe is nailed over the door. Inside, an ax leans against the wall. A wide-brimmed hat hangs on a wall peg. A cast iron tea kettle sits on the wood-burning stove. Outside their log cabin, Jeff and Joyce Thomas relax admidst the corn stalks and wild cherry, mimosa and black walnut trees. An old Volkeswagen with West Virginia tags sits rusting in the weeds. The sight stops passers-by dead in their tracks. They do a double-take. Wipe their eyes. Take another look.

Jeff and Kris Morrison have a contemporary center-hall Colonial in the West Chester area. Or so it appears at the first, enter-the-living-room glance. But stand still for a minute, and the neutral tones and overstuffed sofas recede into the background. In their places pop out a family heirloom and a talented offspring's creation. In a corner is Jeff's grandfather's green wooden trunk, the kind with the metal latches and the individual sections in the top compartment. In each section is an original paper picture of a 19th-century woman.

WHEN JARRETT McClenton was around 7 or 8 years old he was no stranger to great running-back play. Long before he shared Daily News Player of the Year last season, McClenton, now a senior at Archbishop Wood, watched his older brother, Jeff, play football at Conwell-Egan. Jeff was a speedy wideout and safety in his own right, but Steve Slaton was the burner in the backfield. "He could always make the big run because he had breakaway speed," said Jarrett, who is 5-8 and weighs 165 pounds, "but he was also very physical when he ran the ball.

The Sum of Us deals with the relationship between a father and his homosexual son, but don't sigh and assume that it is yet another work about a son's frustrating search for parental acceptance and a father's learning to come to terms with his child's sexuality. Far from it. In Australian David Stevens' play, which opens the Walnut Street Theatre's studio theater series, the father is so accepting and supportive of his son's sexual preference that he's a major nuisance to the younger man, becoming the oddly refracted image of a meddling mother determined to see her daughter happily married.

Jeff the Brotherhood The hairy Nashville dudes in Jeff the Brotherhood are indeed brothers, but neither of them is named Jeff. They're Jake and Jamin Orrall, and together the sons of songwriter-producer Robert Ellis Orrall (who's worked with Taylor Swift and Lindsay Lohan) make up a two-man band of impressive dexterity. The proof of the Orrall brothers' aplomb is We Are the Champions, their second album on their own Infinity Cat label, which is a diverse platter packed with surprisingly, tightly constructed punk-pop and garage-rock.

The violence in The Killer, a Hong Kong gangster melodrama of astounding energy and style, is so over-the-top that the carnage - and there's enough of it for a half-dozen Steven Seagal pictures - quickly becomes unreal. With guns blazing, glass breaking and blood gushing, John Woo's tale - about a troubled assassin, the cabaret singer he accidentally blinds, and a zealous cop hot on the couple's trail - is an unabashed ballet of combustion and murder. It's Sam Peckinpah on speed - a furious, frenzied action pic with enough rounds of bullets to keep the NRA stocked well into the next century.
