Peter Marino, a born maverick, is obsessed with bronzes. Certain kinds of bronzes. "I don't collect wimpy ones," says the New York architect and designer. "I don't have people looking gaga at each other or anything sort of sweet or saccharine. I like best my Samson crushing the Philistine with the jawbone. This is quite powerful stuff. At the same time, I find it incredibly beautiful. " Such dynamic and sensuous scenes abound in the new exhibition "Beauty and Power: Renaissance and Baroque Bronzes From the Peter Marino Collection.

Somm alert! This may just get me to watch tonight's episode of ABC's “ The Taste ,” the new cooking competition show starring Anthony Bourdain , Nigella Lawson and San Diego's hyperactive restaurateur Brian Malarkey .

You can't get credentials much better than that. After four years of high-profile sommelier work, Mack left all that in 2007 to found his own wine company called Mouton Noir (Black Sheep)

Question: I have a relative who 70 years ago was sent to the Leavenworth, Kan., penitentiary for counterfeiting. However, a prison official told me they have nothing in their records about him.

When the governor of Washington, running for reelection in the raucous and rowdy "Black Sheep," remarks gleefully of her opponent's younger brother that he's "Roger Clinton, Billy Carter and the entire Reagan family rolled into one," she's right on the mark. The campaign, a close race, is entering its final days when the governor's opponent, clean-cut, affable Al Donnelly (Tim Matheson), returns to his hometown.

When I asked Rick Boufford about his extraordinary wine list, he opened up like a sunflower in July. Boufford is the proprietor of Tustin's Black Sheep Bistro, a sweet little storefront restaurant that is just full of surprises. Wine is his passion, and it shows--the restaurant is a paradise for wine lovers. If Boufford has a great wine to match every dish he serves, it's because he has been collecting wines for 18 years, about half his life.

For as long as she can remember, Cheryl has been the black sheep of her family. "Why can't you be like your sister?" her mother would ask. Her brother, "who was the only boy, seemed to be admired for no other reason," she says. That left her, the middle child, odd one out. Cheryl's own contrariness didn't help matters much either. From the time she was a toddler, she seemed intent on breaking every family rule she encountered.

Bill Nighy's journey to mid-'60s England began in, of all places, mid-'60s England. As a teen, he left home for Paris to write, came back unwritten, then became an actor, later to play a key (imaginary) figure in the very music that transformed him as a youth. But let's start with Bill the Mod. "Mods loved black American music: Stax, Atlantic and Tamla Motown," says the actor in a quiet, cultured voice at a table at L'Ermitage. "You had a half-inch all-over haircut. You wore Ravel loafers and trousers of the cigarette type but slightly too short, and I regret to say this, and I'm embarrassed and ashamed, but with . . . colored socks."

The demons that pursue Danny Djurkovic come in a constant and numbing barrage. Each day, he watches the stream of news reports: Serbs raping Muslim women. Serbs herding skeletal prisoners into concentration camps. Serbs maiming innocent victims in a random artillery attack. "I am going through hell," said the 63-year-old Studio City man who survived one war in the Balkans and now finds himself entwined in another frighteningly similar conflict.
