Three cheers for the new organic vegetable garden on the White House South Lawn. Maybe four! Now the question is, will that delicious Garden of Eatin' seed others just like it, in window boxes, backyards and community plots all across the country? Lettuce hope. There is nothing more satisfying than eating your own sweet, juicy tomato. It's a kind of miracle. Food you grow tastes better, costs less and has greater nutritional value , and ... [full story]

I'm currently working with an aggressive dog. His owner is a single woman who lives on a ranch. No children are at risk. The woman is responsible, stable and willing to work with the dog in a humane way for the best possible results and the best possible relationship. At the end of our time together, that's what she'll get. The following letter from a reader describes a situation I'm not willing to work with: ... [full story]

Two cheeses, actually: a soft brie and a Casu Marzu — also known as Sardinian maggot cheese for the larvae whose nonstop noshing brings this formaggio to an advanced state of fermentation.   A sausage patty tops the notorious Scottish dish haggis, served here with radishes and fried potatoes. Photo by Peggy Peattie.    Lye — yes, the caustic stuff used to make soap - is one of the ingredients necessary to prepare lutefisk. Photo by Eduardo Contreras.  Is ... [full story]

With the possible exception of Pinocchio, Charlie McCarthy was and remains the most famous wooden character in pop culture history. The elegantly attired, top-hatted and tuxedoed, wisecracking ventriloquist's dummy manipulated by Edgar Bergen had a unique career spanning 56 years, moving from vaudeville to radio — where he was one of the biggest stars of all time — to movies to television to night clubs. Interested in magic as a child, Bergen purchased a book ... [full story]

The economic downturn has affected the average retirement age. Workers over the age of 60 are choosing to stay in the workplace longer in order to retire with some money in the bank. Sixty percent of workers over the age of 60 say, according to a CareerBuilder.com survey that questioned 8,000 employees, retirement isn't in the immediate future. These workers intend to remain in the office due to the impact of the recession on their ... [full story]

A four-door Jeep Wrangler is one of those ideas that sounds bad on paper and looks ungainly in photography. The concept should have had about as much chance of flying as a bumblebee — but it took off.   The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, available with a three-piece hardtop, adds 20.6 inches to the standard Wrangler's 95.4-inch wheelbase, length that went to back-seat space and more cargo room.  The bee and the four-door Wrangler defy logic. And the ... [full story]

Q: I have an unusual workplace question because it combines volunteer jobs with paid jobs. I am on a volunteer board of directors for a condominium association's large complex. We have a paid management company and a full-time onsite manager, who is paid by the management company but takes instructions from our board. Some of the board members are more approachable than others. I am one of the approachable ones. Because of that, people stop ... [full story]

Tip of the Week: Never train on a full stomach, or an empty one. This may sound like a paradox, but really it's just about making sure you do a minimal amount of planning your meals with respect to your workouts. Obviously, you don't want to train shortly after eating. This leads to both ineffective digestion and ineffective workout, as your blood is partially shunted from its role in aiding digestion to assisting taxed muscle ... [full story]

Q: I have enclosed a photo of an old phonograph that my mother gave me several years ago. This is a view of the cabinet's exterior with the lid open. I'm glad my mother rescued the phonograph from a woman who was going to throw it away.   A "Diamond Disc" phonograph, made from around 1912 to 1927, would probably be worth $200 to $500.  The wood is oak and in perfect condition. The original red felt ... [full story]

Just about everything that happens to our boomer president, Barack Obama — even the revelation that his hair is starting to turn gray — makes the news. Of course, friends, the graying of America is not exactly news to us septuagenarians. Many of us men have almost snow-white hair, while our spouses often come and go to the hairdresser so that they can pretend to be blondes, brunettes and redheads. Even a gentlewoman from the ...
