Karen Duffy -- Duff to the fans who adore her on MTV -- and Dwight Yoakum, of the country music Yoakums, are making country music together. She spent both the Christmas and New Year holidays with the sweet singer. You...

Sale Johnson knows that faint heart ne'er kissed the cook, so she showed up at Georgette Mosbacher's biker-chic birthday party at the Harley-Davidson Bar with her black bra on the outside of her leather jacket. That knocked them off their hogs. The party was given by Georgette's beloved sister, Lyn Paulsin, who, by way of an invitation, sent out T-shirts with all the particulars printed on the back. All Georgette's girlfriends wore them to the party the right way, print side back, except Nancy Holmes, who reversed the order and wore the printing in the front. Is she daring? Is she a hoot?

To wish Georgette well, Buffy Cafritz and Arianna Huffington of the Washington social swim trained and planed in for the party (Buffy doesn't fly) and Arianna was squeezed into the tightest black skirt you've ever seen. Catherine Crier of TV's "20/20," Hilary Geary and CeeCee Kieselstein Cord all wore their motorcycle jackets, and everywhere you looked you saw Liz Mezzacappa, Cornelia Bregman, Pat Patterson, Patty Raynes, Pauline Boardman, Gaetana Enders, Joy Henderiks, Libet Ross Kennan, Carolyne Roehm, Gayfryd Steinberg, Cecile Zilkha, Countess (Aline) Romanones and on and on into the afternoon. Georgette's signature red hair was done very much a la lady biker. She looked ever so vrrrooommmmyyy and ready to jump on the back of any motorcycle that ever moved. So? So your birthday comes but once a year.

Sir Robin Renwick, the British ambassador in Washington, will be the guest of honor at the New York reception on board Her Majesty's Yacht Britannia on Feb. 12. The party marks the launch of the American campaign to raise funds for the Museum of Scotland Project, a cultural development of immense significance for Scotland and for Scots around the world. Plus those who have an affection for Scotland, wherever you may be. The Earl of Perth, chairman of the patrons' council, and Robert H. Smith, chairman of the National Museums of Scotland are that proud of the plans for the new Museum and perfectly delighted that the Government of the United Kingdom has pledged to provide three-quarters of the cost. And you may lay to that.
