These days, anyone from your toddler to your grandma might be seen sporting a baseball cap, but there was a time when the only people who wore baseball caps were professional players. They've been around for a long time, and you might consider a collection of the various types of vintage examples to add to your contemporary ones. To start at the beginning, baseball was not invented out of whole cloth by Abner Doubleday, as ... [full story]

Q: I was in my yard picking raspberries and I noticed a small gray bird following me making a soft mewing sound, similar to a kitten. It didn't attack and it didn't appear to be afraid of me. Was it complaining that I was taking its food? I have never seen birds eating raspberries and the plants have been there for years. I don't remember a time when some were missing as though animals had ... [full story]

If you walk on the beach, there's probably a jar full of shells somewhere in your house. If you've camped in the Sierra Nevada, maybe there are framed pressed wildflowers hung in the hallway. Or perhaps there's a needlepoint pillow of a hummingbird on your couch, a reminder of favorite garden visitors. When folks who love the outdoors come inside, it seems natural to have a bit of nature at hand. This season, it is ... [full story]

This summer, as they have since time immemorial (or so it seems), children will trudge through the sand clutching their pails and shovels (or, if you come from some parts of the country, buckets and spades), eager to make mud pies, build castles and dig tunnels to China. There's an eternal, universally irresistible appeal of the feel of grains of sand and its ability to challenge the imagination. Generations of children have been engaged for ... [full story]

Q: Until we had our first baby two years ago, I never knew how hazardous a home could be. Everything I read is full of warnings, such as how the crib railings have to be spaced just so. Even stuffed toys carry "do not" labels. Now we're redecorating our living/dining room, and my playgroup friends tell me to watch out for the cords on the shades and blinds because they can strangle a child. Maybe ... [full story]

Q: I have enclosed a photo of a pair of American Indian gauntlets that were passed down to me. They were authenticated by a curator of the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum in Cody, Wyo. The curator told me the gauntlets were made in the 1880s in the Great Lakes region and are in good condition. The embroidered design is made of extremely small stitches on fine leather rather than beadwork. Can you give me an ... [full story]

Q: I planted a Japanese maple this year. I noticed that some of the tips of the leaves are brown, but the tree looks healthy. Do I have some kind of insect problem? One of the branches broke off.
