When her 86-year-old mom died in September, Ronna Fillhart said goodbye knowing she'd been the best possible daughter - even if her mother never seemed to appreciate it.

Suffering from alcohol-induced dementia and depression, her mother moved into a skilled-nursing facility for her final 15 months of life. Unfortunately, she'd forgotten it was her ... [full story]

Now that the spy business, which took a big hit at the end of the Cold War, is fashionable again, thanks to the televised testimony of the blond femme fatale, Valerie Plame Wilson, I have a confession to make. I was in the spy game, myself, for a couple of years in Europe. I got my snooping training at the now-defunct Fort Holabird in Baltimore in 1958. But nobody seemed too much care about my ...

There's a possibility that Good Friday should actually be Good Thursday - or maybe even Good Wednesday. And there's a probability that Easter Sunday should be considered Easter Saturday Evening.   LAST SUPPER - Theologians continue to debate what really transpired during the Holy Week.

THE CHEF Jim Botsacos watched his grandmother make veal with peppers through new eyes - those of a student at the famous Johnson and Wales cooking school in Providence, R.I. When she threw the chopped peppers, onions and chunks of veal into the electric skillet, he gently chided her: "Grandma, you're supposed to caramelize the veal, take it out and then saute the vegetables, not dump it all in at one time." "This is the ... [full story]

Non-Christian religions' reverence and appreciation of Jesus usually stops at the threshold of the empty tomb or takes an alternate route. Yet the Resurrection, which will be celebrated by most Christians on Sunday, April 8, is still a topic that is addressed by most religions.   RELIGION AND THE RESURRECTION - How do faiths besides Christianity view Jesus' rising from the dead? CNS Illustration by Michael Anthony Noel. Islam says it didn't happen. Hinduism, the Baha'i Faith ... [full story]

SAN FRANCISCO - There were lavender honey truffles and cloudlike marshmallows with names like Caramel Swirl and Kona Coffee Crunch.

For three days recently, San Francisco's enormous Moscone Convention Center was turned into a food-lover's paradise as the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade ... [full story]

VIMMERBY, Sweden - Anyone with the name Pippi Longstocking has to be an interesting character.

Q: We are concerned about our dog. We heard that the boarding kennel where our dog frequently stays had an outbreak of parvovirus about three weeks ago. Although our dog has been vaccinated for all of the common canine diseases as recommended by our veterinarian, we are still worried about this possible exposure.

The approach of another Good Friday provides Christian educators, ministers and parents another tough task: how to talk to young children about the crucifixion of Jesus. But, some teachers and psychologists said, the solution is only two days after the problem. When you talk about the crucifixion, don't forget the resurrection. During Holy Week, Christians in the West will commemorate such events as the Last Supper, the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus. It's explaining ... [full story]

Now that we are living so much longer, it seemed only a matter of time before one group of Americans, who had not taken much advantage of Medicare over the years, would sign up. Mobsters never used to live long enough to be eligible for Medicare on their 65th birthdays. They were rubbed out long before that. The cases of the late Tommy Eboli and Crazy Joey Gallo are illustrative. Tommy, who took over the ... [full story]
