Hello there On New Year's Eve 2009, Nathan and his friend Andrea headed toward the Apple Store near Central Park to meet another friend and some of his friends, who were all going to a party on the Lower East Side. Milagros "was wearing a big, goofy hat and eating a hot dog from the hot dog cart," Nathan said. "Something about her caught my eye. " On the ride to the gathering, Milagros could see Nathan watching her in the subway window's reflection. They started talking at that party, and also checked out another one in the apartment next door.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) (*****) You might feel a little off tonight and decide to bypass a gathering. Do not worry, this feeling is not an omen of what is ahead. You wake up Saturday morning feeling great. The moon beams on you and you feel this sensual lunar energy. Whatever is in your heart to do, there is no time like the present. You carve the next few days to your liking. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) (****) You turn to automatic and become nearly impossible to stop. You are on a mission.

WELL, NO ONE CAN say Democratic Gov. Wolf isn't off to an enthusiastic start. His inauguration yesterday outside the Capitol was marked by calm weather, an eclectic mix of music and high-sounding rhetoric tempered with reality. There were a cappella songs from a Pittsburgh LGBT choir, a vigorous vocal of Pennsylvania's state song (who knew we had a song?) and a rousing rendition of the O'Jays' 1970s Philly-born hit "Love Train," performed by the Chester Children's Chorus.

LAST YEAR, two 70-something, lifelong baseball men needed a respite from the unforgiving Florida summer sun. Former Phillies manager Charlie Manuel and longtime Phillies minor league coach Mike Compton took in a Gulf Coast League game in Tampa. They watched. They waited. They sweated. "It was 12 o'clock, it was about 100 degrees and the humidity was 98 [percent], with no shade," Manuel said. "Compton and I are sitting over there and it seemed like the first five, six innings, it was never going to get over.

I don't want to ruin your undoubtedly excellent opinion of me, but there's something you should know. I watch The Bachelor . I confessed this to an author I know, and she said, "I get it, it's your guilty pleasure. " But she was wrong. I don't feel guilty about it, at all. In fact, I feel guilty if I miss it. I told another author that I watch The Bachelor , and she said, "I understand, you hate-watch it. " But she was wrong, too. I don't hate-watch anything.

Hello there The smoked salmon started it. A group of friends had dinner in Doylestown one spring evening in 1991. Somebody invited Lori, someone else invited Linda. Only the two of them wanted that particular appetizer, so they shared it, talking over the plate and enjoying their talk as much as the food. Lori had to leave after dinner - she had work early the next morning. Linda walked her to her car, and asked for her phone number. "We had so much in common," Linda said.

When Jerry Bennett Roberts visited her children in college, she flew a single-engine Cessna to get there. Son Stephen was in Kentucky; son Brian was in Virginia; daughter Gwen was at State College, Pa. It was easy, Gwen Staffiera said, for a woman who had taken part in four transcontinental races, flying solo for days in her single-engine Cessnas. On Wednesday, Jan. 7, Mrs. Roberts, 88, of Haddon Heights, who retired in the late 1970s as corporate secretary for her family's lumber firms in Barrington, died of bronchitis at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.

* GALAVANT. 8 and 8:30 p.m. Sunday, 6ABC. PASADENA, Calif. - TV producers are used to getting notes from networks and studios: suggestions, helpful or not, from the people who pay the bills. "Galavant" creator Dan Fogelman's lately been getting love notes. "They gave us a lot of leeway," said Fogelman, of ABC's approach to "Galavant," a musical-comedy filmed in Britain. It's probably coincidence that Fogelman, a Penn grad who earlier created ABC's aliens-in-New Jersey comedy "The Neighbors" and is a screenwriter ("The Guilt Trip," "Crazy, Stupid, Love")

Hello there Colleen logged on to Facebook one 2011 evening and found a friend request from someone she sort of knew during her days at George Washington High School in Northeast Philadelphia. She and Corey had never been friends, and hadn't even seen each other since graduation in 1992. "Hey! What's up?" she messaged him anyway. "How are you?" "I'm good," Corey replied. "I've got three kids, I own a company. I just got separated. " "I'm going through the same thing," Colleen said.
