Eleanor La Battaglia Russell, who for nearly 70 years watched the world change from her real estate office at 15th and Tasker streets in South Philadelphia, died Saturday. She was 91 and lived in the University City section of West Philadelphia. She was of the old school, and proud of it. Even at age 87, when she retired as office manager, Russell still did most of her figuring with a pencil and paper, said her nephew, Robert Bocchino. In the age of the electronic calculator, she would rarely even use the office's ancient adding machine, he said.

AT 7:05 P.M., I arrive at Sarah Grey's house for "Friday Night Meatballs. " Considering that I'm sort of crashing this dinner party at her Fishtown home, I'm self-conscious about being the first guest in the door. The feeling worsens when I realize I've stupidly forgotten to bring something to contribute to the night's meal. I offer my hostess neither wine, dessert nor humble daisies for the table. I feel my smile freeze on my face. I am mortified. But the ever-chipper Grey, 35, is too chilled-out to notice (or at least to comment on)

When they showed up at the happy hour, they weren't wearing their office clothes, but sweats and tights. Nor were they drinking lagers and downing wings. Instead, they were contorting themselves, becoming at turns a Downward Facing Dog or a Half Lord of the Fishes. The 90 or so had gathered at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday at a nondescript office complex in King of Prussia for a "Yoga Happy Hour," a twist, bend, and stretch on a long-standing American tradition. The summertime yoga class and networking social draws scores of frazzled office workers, who change from business casual to sweat-friendly and stretch for 45 minutes on an office building patio in Upper Merion Township.

THROUGH SUNSHINE, rain, cold, blizzard - whatever the weather might throw at him - Jerry Nolan walked five blocks to church every day to attend Mass. "We had to dig him out of a snow drift once," said his niece Carolyn McDonald. Jerry was a man secure not only in his faith, but in his footwork. He was a marathon runner into his 70s, and ran shorter races until he was almost 80, stopped only when he was hit by a car and broke a leg. But whether he was running or not, Jerry was a presence at nearly every race of any consequence in the Philadelphia-South Jersey area as a volunteer, helping out wherever he could, and as the unofficial photographer with his handy Instamatic.
