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.

In California, whole seasoned roasts are strung up on steel rods and then gradually lowered over hot red-oak coals. The roast is sliced and served with salsa and pinquito beans, which are said to be grown only in the Santa Maria Valley. Whether you grill or roast tri-tip, whole roasts, or steaks or chunks for kebabs, it's best done medium-rare. There's not a lot of fuss with tri-tip, either. Whole tri-tip roasts typically have a fat layer. Some will come well-trimmed. But don't remove all the fat because it protects the meat during grilling.

AT THE END of the third quarter Sunday, the second-most important number was this: Twenty-nine minutes. That is how long the Philadelphia Eagles' offense had control of the ball. Run the ball into the line. One yard. Two yards. Run the ball around the end. Four, 5, 6 yards. Throw it quick, throw it safe, keep hitting the defense of the Cleveland Browns in the ribs until the head became exposed. "It felt," tight end Zach Ertz said after the Eagles scored a unanimous decision over the Cleveland Browns, 29-10, at Lincoln Financial Field, "like we were on the field the entire game.

Jewelers are placing emeralds, rubies, and sapphires in bold settings. The trendlet In other words, they are fashioning our drop earrings, cuff bracelets, and statement necklaces in the style of the baroque period. That means mixing metals (think rose gold and sterling silver) and piling on the precious stones - a little sapphire here, a few pearls there - in a big, big way. Where did it come from? The baroque period spanned about 135 years, from 1590 to 1725. It was Europe's most opulent period, and artists, architects, and dressmakers were all about the extras - vivid paintings, ornate buildings, and flouncy fashions were considered a hallmark of the era. Baubles were equally ostentatious.

Mayor Kenney on Thursday condemned a photo of a Philadelphia police officer with an apparent Nazi-style tattoo on his arm, saying the tattoo was "incredibly offensive" and not the sort of message police should be giving the community. The Police Department also said its Internal Affairs unit would review the photo, which began circulating on social media Wednesday night. It showed a bike-patrol officer with a tattoo on his left forearm of an apparent spread-winged eagle resembling a symbol used by the Nazis, and above it the tattooed word Fatherland in Gothic letters.

Anything like that here? C.L.: Hi and welcome to Philly! I'm sorry to tell you, though, we are not a good hot dog town, as much as some places have tried. I love Tommy's in Westwood - and its chili burger was even mentioned in the chorus of a little song I did years ago in homage to my favorite burgers.

Cropped pants are making hard stops at the ankle. The trendlet Ankle-length pants - whether boyfriend jeans or cotton twill skinnies - are jazzing up the classic blouse, toning down the graphic T, and dressing up the backless yoga tank. Heels are optional. Where do they come from? In the 1930s, when pants became an acceptable part of women's wardrobes, hemlines had a habit of breaking at the top of the shoe in standard uniformity. Think Katharine Hepburn's pleated, mens-inspired trousers in 1940's The Philadelphia Story . By the time the 1950s rolled around, closer-fitting cropped trousers - essentially any pants with a shorter-than-standard hem - were a casual staple.

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.
