When it comes to St. Patrick's Day, we know that Chicago and New York are big names. But who would have dreamed that Savannah, Ga., hit No. 3 in Orbitz's picks for the top 10 St. Patrick's Day destinations? And with good reason. Savannah starts its celebrations in earnest in mid-February with an Irish festival, a Celtic cross ceremony on March 1 and many lesser parades and events leading up to its big St. Patrick's Day Parade, said to be the second-largest in the U.S. This year, hotels are booked, and the city of 125,000 is expecting 1 million spectators to line its historic streets.

I'm sure glad I don't live in the grown up world, thought Savannah, as she trudged to the bus stop. It was only Tuesday but it felt like Monday all over again. Savannah had already dropped her books all over the place, and when she went to dive for them couldn't get up. That's how slippery her winter parka was. Before that, she had missed breakfast. And before that, she found her homework eaten by the family's dog Nani. Of course, Nani was just being a big puppy. But how had she reached Savannah's home work?

The first Girl Scout camping trip in 1913 was a far cry from this weekend's 13,000-girl Diamond Jubilee Roundup, according to Mildred Guckenheimer Kerr, 94, of Savannah, Ga., one of the "guide-mistresses" (leaders) who accompanied the Scouts on a two-week excursion to Ossabaugh Island, off the Georgia coast. "It was the biggest mess, when you think of it," Kerr recollects in her soft Savannah drawl.

Paula Deen may be bringing more of her butter-drenched recipes to supermarkets and retailers such as Target, Wal-Mart and Kroger with the creation of her new Paula Deen Foods company.

ABC's new nighttime soap "Mistresses," which premieres Monday, is pretty much what we've come to expect from any Americanized version of a British television show that isn't "The Office": lame. The BBC version, which debuted here in 2009, was the fairly ridiculous tale of a quartet of female besties, each involved in some manner of semi-illicit romantic intrigue or other - a U.K. and middle-aged "Sex and the City," elevated by a willingness to conjure mood and the inevitable Very Fine British Acting.

NAIROBI, Kenya - Along Nairobi's dusty Ngong Road, so many start-up incubators and IT labs have popped up that the busy neighborhood has been nicknamed "Silicon Savannah. " Techies, geeks and innovators race one another to come up with the next big thing. They rush from meeting to meeting, work late, skip weekends. Every other day there's a pitch night for tech start-ups, a creative Web workshop, or a meeting of mobile app developers. The result is a surge in innovative Kenyan apps, most designed to work with the not-so-smart phones most Kenyans can afford.

Whether you bet on Florida State or Savannah State on Saturday, you couldn't lose. At least not at Las Vegas sportsbooks that go by the usual rules. The rout-in-waiting that had Savannah State visiting Florida State drew plenty of attention in Las Vegas this week after oddsmakers made the sixth-ranked Seminoles a record 70.5-point favorite. Well, Florida State seemed well on its way to beating that spread, but nobody ended up winning … or losing. Harsh weather forced the game to be stopped early in the third period - short off the 55-minute mark that most Las Vegas books, by rules, consider a complete game.

Inside this fat book, a thin book is struggling to get out. It never does, but from time to time, we glimpse an elegant ankle, a sinewy wrist and the flash of eyes alive with wit and compassion. Pat Conroy has an irreplaceable sense of a South Carolina tidewater town. He knows its eccentricities, its individualism, and the way tartness cuts the appealing flamboyance of its language. In such a gifted context, he places a story of pain and violence among family members and generations.

After the coffee. Before seeing how Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management' performed. The Skinny: Saw "The Amazing Spider-Man" Thursday night (no I wasn't at the premiere), and while I enjoyed it, I wish Emma Stone hadn't gone blond for the part. She looked too much like Lindsay Lohan and the two already share husky voices. Very distracting. Friday's headlines include the weekend box-office preview, a look at Savannah Guthrie, who will succeed Ann Curry on "Today" and reviews of "Ted" and "Magic Mike.
