'To suffer love. " This unusual line appears three times in quick order toward the end of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing . Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre's fresh, exuberant production illuminates the Bard's theme with a fullness and flourish. Much of Much Ado centers on the unwilling affection building between Beatrice (Eleni Delopoulos) and Benedick (Chance Dean), a proud maid and professed bachelor trading jaded barbs about how they will never marry, especially not each other.

People buy flowers for their sweethearts all year round, but Valentine's Day is the day to go public with love. A simple bunch of daisies will not do. No, for maximum points, a long white box must arrive, a box that can contain only one thing: a dozen roses. Yesterday, Charles F. Kremp 3d Florists of Willow Grove was busy delivering these fragile symbols of love.

Hello there On Memorial Day weekend 2011, Rachel and her lifelong friend Sarah had a hotel room in Stone Harbor and evening plans in Avalon. Elsewhere at the Shore, Glenn was at his West Chester University buddy Bill's Sea Isle City beach house when another college pal, Paul, suggested they go out in his neck of the barrier islands. That's how a guy from Broomall and a girl from Cheltenham ended up at the same bar: the Princeton. Rachel and Sarah recognized Paul, whom they had met a few summers before.

THEIR LOVE story began nearly 40 years ago when Leslie Manas walked into Sassafras Cafe in Old City and "Jean and I met in a mirror's reflection and we've been partners ever since," she said. Jean is Jean Huffenus, a French designer/metalsmith on Jewelers Row whose creations range from tender "Mother and Child: Arms of Love" necklaces to erotica. "Jean's back was to me," Manas said. "He was facing this wall of mirrors. He saw me pass by behind him. He said to his crazy French friend Jean-Claude, 'Oh, I must know her.' " Manas laughed and said, "So I guess you could say our partnership started in bed. " One fruit of that partnership is this weekend's Craft Phila Liberty Bell Fair, an outdoor show of made-in-the-USA handcrafts, art and fashion on 6th to 7th streets between Chestnut and Market.

ANY GIVEN Sunday, open the blue door to the storefront Church of the Living God at 2nd Street near Somerset in West Kensington, and you won't be able to sit still. The band, including a 10-year-old boy strumming a guitar and a 14-year-old girl on the drums, could pass for a professional rock/soul group. Even the oldest member, 100-year-old Anna Lee Green, stands, claps, dances and sings in this self-proclaimed "Happiest Church In The City of Philadelphia. " Happy it is. The church exudes joy even when parishioners cool themselves with fans that depict an ad for a funeral home in the Powelton neighborhood.

Hello there Meghan was at an off-campus party in another Widener University student's basement. So was a guy she'd gone out with a few times, but was just not interested in. Mr. Not Right was in pursuit, and Meghan wasn't up for setting him straight. "I was trying to get away from him, and so I went up to the first guy I saw and said, 'Can you just please talk to me right now?' " "All right," Carmen said, figuring it was always good to meet someone new, and that he might as well see what was up with this woman.

IN THE CITY'S poorest neighborhood, registered voters can tell you the cost of a gallon of milk, down to the penny. They can tell you the exact profit margin gained from hawking bottled water, bought by the case, for $1 apiece on the street. They can tell you precisely what they paid in property taxes last year. Or readily name the worst drug corners within their 19133 ZIP code. But asked which mayoral candidate they prefer, most draw a blank, either unsure who's running or what, if any, difference their vote would make in a pocket of North Philly long in the strangle-grip of poverty.
