WHAT DOES it take to be married in Pennsylvania? The law clearly states you have to be a straight couple. But you can't be cousins. You have to be 18. But you can be as young as 17 if you have the consent of at least one parent or guardian. You can even be as young as 16 if you have the approval of a parent or guardian and the okay from a judge of the Orphan's Court. There's a three-day waiting period. Pennsylvania doesn't recognize "civil unions" or same-sex "life partnerships.

WANT TO GET to know Center City Philadelphia better? Then take at comprehensive walking tour, leisurely, through the many narrow and quaint streets as I did recently. A good walking tour takes you off the beaten path. One can tour these tucked-away and traffic-free streets at an unhurried pace. It has been said time after time that Philadelphia is indeed a walker-friendly city. I began my tour at 10th and Market after arriving in the city at the Market East station. Then walk south on 10th to Locust, turn left on Locust, heading east, and there you will find all these picturesque streets, like Hutchinson, Addison, Quince, etc. It is indeed a different world altogether.

Ramon Martinez didn't like having to watch his team play ball while he rehabbed from a shoulder injury. But he's back with the Los Angeles Dodgers at the right time. Martinez won his first official start in more than two months and the visiting Dodgers, roughing up Jason Schmidt for eight runs in 4 1/3 innings, beat Pittsburgh, 8-2, yesterday in the first game of a doubleheader. "For two months, I had to sit around and do nothing except exercises," said Martinez (7-3), who had a slight tear in his right rotator cuff.

Which John Kerry will stand and deliver tonight? Will it be the guy whose convoluted, comma-riddled lectures nearly killed his chances last year? Or will it be the 2004 Kerry, who punched up his message and touched people's hearts? I expect Kerry to give the speech of his life unless he speaks in the formal, Kennedyesque style that he echoed as a young man. All those ask-nots and undying dreams sound out of sync in an age of instant messaging and anytime terrorism. Indeed, this candidate's oratory can be more complicated than JFK's.

Kid Creole and the Coconuts fancy themselves the musical equivalent of some vibrant tropical salad, a burstingly juicy array of mango crescents, pineapple spears and kiwi halos. But at the 14-piece troupe's free Saturday night luau down Penn's Landing way, they came off as significantly less delectable. Kind of like Del Monte Fruit Cocktail. Just as the canned variety is a sweet but generic uniformity, Kid Creole's perfunctory mix of reggae, Caribbean, salsa, New Orleans and R&B music lacked real richness.

Penn State offensive tackle Matt McCartin no longer feels bitter toward the Southern Methodist football program he used to play for, only sadness for what might have been. The 6-5, 274-pound fifth-year senior was there in February 1987 when the NCAA gave the Mustangs the first "death penalty" for paying players while the Southwest Conference school was already on probation. He still remembers the whispers, the accusations, investigation and, finally, the punishment after reports surfaced that the school paid several players through a slush fund.

Some say Ronald Reagan's Iran-Contra woes are a direct result of his management style. They may not know how right they are. During his March 4 "get thee behind me" talk, he made an astonishing statement - one which has drawn remarkably little comment. The statement clearly sums up Reagan's management style: My heart and my best intentions still tell me that is true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not. With these words, Reagan has announced he is what management style experts call a "feeler.

Sharon and Armen DiFilippo's spacious stone Colonial features a center hall and an elegant staircase. On the wall of the second-floor landing are large framed photos of the three DiFilippo children in First Holy Communion finery - the girls in white dresses and veils, the boy in a white suit. Memories of yesterday installed in the house the family live in today. They took up residence here in 2008, a few years after the photos were taken, when Sharon and Armen and the children moved from Collegeville to Ashbourne Estates in Schwenksville.

Leon Bridges, the 26-year-old rhythm-and-blues singer with the 50-year-old soul, will bring his high-waisted vintage slacks and his playful-to-prayerful love songs to the July 4th Wawa Welcome America! party on the Ben Franklin Parkway. Bridges, who channels Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" and Sam Cooke's "You Send Me" every time he sings his neo-soul serenades, is a young master of old-school vulnerability. "The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl," he laments on "Coming Home," the title song on his breakout 2015 debut album, which skyrocketed him from obscurity to omnipresence on the concert circuit.

Long eyelashes turn ordinary eyes magical. The trendlet That's why Russian-volume-style lash extensions - applying two to seven slivers of fiber-size hairs on a single natural eyelash to create depth and volume - will keep our eyes beautifully aflutter this spring. Where do they come from? The eyelash's glam history started in 1916, when Hollywood film director D.W. Griffith ordered a wig-maker to fashion some falsies for actress Seena Owen. The two were filming Intolerance , with Owen playing a Babylonian, and Griffith thought adding a strip of human-hair lashes would add to the character's authenticity.

MODENA, Italy - As we ascended the winding stairs into the garret of Acetaia Giuseppe Giusti, a familiar musky grape aroma wafted over us, one that had we had previously associated with ancient wine cellars carved out of chalky loam. However, it was not wine we were going to taste, but another product of grapes, authentic Balsamico di Modena, the globally renowned vinegar that, in some cases, is so precious it is served via eyedropper. Modena is a city of contrasts. Two prominent buildings pierce the azure Italian sky; the 12th-century white-marble-clad cathedral and the racy, yellow curved roof of the Enzo Ferrari museum.

On the left side of the room, Doug Pederson touted an "open dialogue" with Howie Roseman, who was the focal point of conflict for Kelly, and said he would like for his players to see him "like a son going to your dad.

If The Mysterious Affair at Styles sounds like a long-winded title, well, it's a long play with a convoluted plot. With mixed success, the Hedgerow Theatre's world premiere of Jared Reed's adaptation of this, Agatha Christie's first novel, tries to enliven the plot while keeping every clue and wrinkle. Styles is a manor in Essex, where, in 1916, the widowed Emily Inglethorp (Stacy Skinner) resides with her new, decades-younger husband, Alfred (Mark Swift). Emily's two step-sons, John (Ned Pryce)

Never a polite purveyor of antique music, Dutch keyboardist/conductor Ton Koopman immediately let Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 off its leash in his Philadelphia Orchestra debut Thursday. It was a performance with more prominent timpani than I've previously encountered, and it set the tone for a concert that could be recklessly exuberant, and even blithely imprecise. Koopman and his Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra have long been an antidote to more severe Dutch early-music specialists who stripped away the accumulated traditions of the more recent past but put too little personality in its place.
