Can I freeze a blueberry pie? And, if so, should it be frozen before or after baking? Yes, you can freeze blueberry pies. And although you can freeze them after they have been baked, it's better to freeze them before they have been cooked. The problem with freezing after baking is that the dough becomes tougher and loses its flakiness. If you do freeze a baked pie, wrap it tightly and place the entire wrapped pie in a sealable plastic bag. Before sealing, try to remove all the air. When ready to use, thaw the pie for about three hours, then place it in a 450-degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes to crisp it back up. If you're storing an unbaked pie, do not cut vent holes in the upper crust before freezing.

"Never anything like this, ever."One person who visited the dying man said: "It's a real shame. I went to the hospital and saw him, but he was unconscious. He didn't even know I was in the room. It wasn't a pretty sight, man. It was sad . . . I think it's terrible that this happened.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Georgia fired the first shot with its Heisman Trophy candidate, and Ohio State answered with a salvo from its scholar/greyhound. Not quite an even exchange, but close enough to keep the scoreboard level.Georgia fired with its quarterback and his strong arm, and Ohio State had no answer. It took most of four quarters at the Florida Citrus Bowl to accomplish it, but eventually the Bulldogs squeezed the life out of the guys from the Big Ten, scoring with 4:32 left for a 21-14 victory.

There is a product that can be found in many Anne Arundel County liquor stores that I believe is dangerous and a threat to anyone who mistakes it for a wine cooler.This product is a fortified wine, which has a labeled alcohol content of 20 percent by volume (40 proof). Wine coolers have an alcohol content that ranges from 4 percent to 7 percent. Regular table wines average about 12 percent alcohol.Fortified wine, or "Cisco," comes in five flavors: red, peach, orange, berry and gold. It is bottled in two sizes: 375 and 750 milliliters.

Several door locks at my home don't work properly. When I try to extend the deadbolt lock, it will not turn all of the way. Several other regular door locks and deadbolts in my home are hard to turn. All of them used to work perfectly years ago. Are they just worn out and I need new locks, or is it some other issue? Your deadbolt dilemma is fairly common. There are many reasons why door locks begin to stick and become problematic. Some can be traced to poor workmanship when they were installed, and Mother Nature can place a hex on these pieces of hardware if she gets cranky.

Recently serial killers have been put on the faces of a line of trading cards.
