One of the trickier quandaries posed by second marriages is relating with each other's grown children and grandchildren. In the first flush of the feelings aroused by falling in love, it's easy to think that everything will go smoothly. After all, we love each other so shouldn't our children and siblings love our new partner, too? It doesn't always work out that way, as Jake and Betsy discovered not long after their marriage 10 years ... [full story]

As much a part of Americana as apple pie and Amish quilts, the once-humble pair of Levi Strauss jeans isn't so humble anymore. In fact, the oldest pair known to still exists - made in the 1880s, the decade after they were invented - sold on eBay a few years ago for the staggering record price of $46,532, finding their way back into the archives of the company that manufactured them. In 2005, a 155-year-old ... [full story]

In the spring, a young man's fancy may well turn to thoughts of love, but for lovers of flowers it's more likely to turn to thoughts of colorful blooms of every description. Whether it's perfectly formed Dutch tulips or the exotic-looking flowers that pop out of desert cactus, the world becomes a garden when the chill of winter blows over and balmy replaces nippy.

On July 3, 1876, a St. Louis-based gang of counterfeiters planned to steal Abraham Lincoln's body and hold it for $200,000 ransom and the release of one of their partners, who was in prison for engraving counterfeit plates. That scheme was never carried out, thanks to a prostitute who tipped off authorities after one of the ringleaders paid her a visit and began bragging about it. Another botched attempt was made a few months later. ... [full story]

The client wore a $95 navy Burberry shirt tucked into jeans held up by a grosgrain ribbon belt, and blue socks with black penny loafers. He was freshly shaven, and his short, brown hair was shiny and stiff from the gel that held it in place. In five days, he was going to prison. He offered the men across the table a cup of coffee. Then he carried his oversized wallet to Starbucks and returned ... [full story]

THE CHEF Charlie Trotter is one of America's greatest chefs and his Chicago restaurants are celebrated around the world. But in the last few years, Trotter has become ensnarled in one of the great fine-food controversies of our time - to foie gras or not to foie gras. In 2002, after visiting a foie gras farm, Trotter was so enraged by inhumane treatment of the geese that he took goose liver (foie gras) off the ... [full story]

Back in the sleepy 1980s, I had trouble staying awake at afternoon newsroom meetings. In fact, I nodded off within minutes after our brilliant young editor sat down with his list of story ideas for the week. They were starting to call me Mr. Sandman. Those were the days when any two-fisted reporter downed a drink or three at lunch while dissecting a huge steak. I figured I was dozing off because I drank too ... [full story]

Q: As two widows in our 70s, we have decided to take an adventure trip. We want to go on an African escorted safari. Neither of us has ever been on a trip like this.
