" In the meantime she is busy doing all kinds of "girly things" such as playing with dolls and dressing up and getting new clothes. Jenyiah enjoys styling hair and is quite adept at making long braids. Other favorite pastimes include playing educational computer games, having stories read to her, and riding her bicycle and scooter.

The tour starts at 12:30 p.m. every weekday, led by enthusiastic volunteers in love with the grand old building. It is inspiring to hear the history, to discover the hidden delights in a structure so superficially familiar yet, really, so unknown. It is also terribly frustrating. The closing years of City Hall's first century are leaving the massive building desperately in need of care. With foundation walls 25 feet thick, it is far too sturdy to fall down or apart. But like an aging, forgotten princess clinging to a ratty coat, its dingy exterior sags pathetically.

STANTON, Del. - How races are run often is more determinant in results than what horses are running in those races. How horses undergo subtle changes over time also matters every bit as much as the history of those horses. When 2014 began, the idea of Belle Gallantey beating Princess of Sylmar in any race, much less Saturday's Grade I $750,000 Delaware Handicap would have been laughable. In 2013, Belle Gallantey was 1-for-14 and was claimed for $35,000 from her final race of the year.

Epic and intimate, historical and contemporary, moving and thought-provoking, the impressive "The Princess of Montpensier" has something for all and sundry but especially for those who like to believe that films can be as boldly intelligent as they are entertaining. As directed and co-written by the veteran French filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier with an expert cast of familiar and unfamiliar faces, "Princess" is a costume production rich in all manner of classic dramatic elements. Say hello to selfish schemes, bitter rivalries and the complexities of power and dynastic relationships at a time when France was divided by a bloody religious war between Catholics and Protestant Huguenots.

One of the most catastrophically mis-marketed films of the year, A Little Princess deserved a better fate and a bigger audience. A visually stunning adaptation of the Frances Hodgson Burnett classic about a fanciful young girl left in a strict, stuffy boarding school when her father goes off to war, the movie is an ode to the power of storytelling. (Burnett's book, published in 1888, was titled Sara Crewe.) With production design by longtime Tim Burton collaborator Bo Welch (the Indian prince fantasies are a picture-book marvel sprung to life)

AS CHARMING farm boy Westley in "The Princess Bride," actor Cary Elwes set the chivalry bar high for men looking to court women after 1987, when the film was released. After all, he did scale the Cliffs of Insanity, battle Rodents of Unusual Size (R.O.U.S.) and develop an immunity to iocane powder, all to save his beloved Buttercup. But in a recent interview with the Daily News , Elwes said that there's a lesson about life and love that anyone can take from the film, and it's about recognizing when you're a part of something special.

The Philadelphia Flower Show opened to the public Saturday, and while it wasn't exactly Disney World at the Convention Center, it was darned close in some corners. The 2015 theme - "Celebrate the Movies," with an emphasis on Disney - appears to be speaking to families in a way that past shows have not. Many more children were in evidence throughout the day, especially little girls with endless love for princesses. "This is really cool," said Kate Abbey, 11, of East Lyme, Conn., who was scheduled to compete in a gymnastics meet elsewhere in the Convention Center on Sunday but came to Philadelphia a day early, with her mother, Karen, to take in the Flower Show.

'TIS THE NEW era of the emancipated fairy-tale princess. The immensely popular "Frozen" has the queenly heroine Elsa going it alone, and her princess sister Anna wisely freezing out a bad suitor (before finally finding Mr. Right). And a fresh stage revamp of "Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella" - on Broadway and opening here in a new touring version tomorrow - features a rags-to-riches heroine with lotsa backbone and ambition, as well as magic at her disposal. "She's not the typical doormat Cinderella, just suffering abuse from her wicked stepmother and stepsisters" said Douglas Carter Beane, the Reading-born script writer.

Give Princess and Charles a big kiss for us. " Princess, 8, whose coat is tortoiseshell, was in her cage "making muffins," as cat people like to say. Front paws padded up and down, as if kneading dough, a sign of calm. Princess is aptly named, for she was about to receive a rarest jewel: a lifesaving kidney transplant.
