A cow dumped $1,000 into Elaine Wisner's wallet yesterday.The winner in the game of barnyard bingo had purchased several tickets in the second annual Lineboro Fire Department fund-raiser. She kept her fingers crossed and hoped "Jessie," an pound Holstein, would answer nature's call in one of her 3-foot squares.Unlike the other hundred spectators, Ms. Wisner didn't stoop to raucous cajoling, cattle calling, cheering and mooing. She waited patiently on the sidelines."This is udderly ridiculous," said Jim Buckley, announcer.

What we know of what Mother Nature provides in the spring has come to us over years of watching for the emergence of spring flowers, the scampering of the squirrels, and the change in the songs of the birds. We like the idea of knowing when each sprout breaks through the cold earth of winter every green stick and flowering twig. Just getting whiff of the fresh perfume of the daffodils puts life into an otherwise dreary day! The love of flowers is universal. We saw Russian children in Moscow carrying handfuls of tulips in the month of May. In the South Seas, girls wear flowers in their hair and ropes of orchids around their necks.

Some Eastern Shore waterfowlers have the best of both worlds as they toe a fuzzy tightrope between the legal and illegal. But now they're headed for a showdown in a tradition as old as the banishment of live decoys in 1935.Those who stock farms with pen-reared mallards, then shoot wild waterfowl nearby are caught in the middle of a fresh legal look at that practice prompted by a U.S. Court of Appeals decision that appears to have cast aside the old interpretation that if they can fly, they're OK.Also caught in the middle of a battle that promises to be as controversial if not more so than baiting was in the '50s and '60s is Mary Andrea Ward, the new U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service chief resident agent for Maryland and Delaware.

I watched a large portion of yesterdays special Senate hearings into Goldman Sachs role in the recent financial collapse. I came away with the feeling that the country might be better served if it was run by the Goldman folks rather than by the buffons running the hearing. It was apparent from the start that the committee members were practically drooling to get into the faces of the Goldman reps. It was also apparent that,other than Sen. Colburn, they knew practically nothing about how a firm like Goldman Sachs operates.

Barnyard stars a bunch of farm animals that look like those cheap plastic toys you can buy for a buck at any neighborhood convenience store, trinkets that will at least keep the kids amused for a few minutes. How appropriate, for that's about the best that can be said about this movie. It includes a few moments that might make the kids chuckle, but, for the most part, it's uninspired, not much to look at and laugh-free - as though the creators dreamed up the film's tagline, "The original party animals," and figured that was enough.

1999 Domaine les Grands Bois Cotes du Rhone ($10). This earthy, richly fruity, full-bodied red wine with deep blackberry flavor offers lush texture and an abundance of rustic charm. There's a touch of a barnyard aroma similar to that found in many a red Burgundy - something that is more pleasant to the nose than it looks in print. This charming, robust wine is well suited for winter drinking with hearty stews and roasts. This excellent value is well worth buying by the case - not for long cellaring but for use over the next year as a house red.

George Orwell(1903-1950)Born Eric Arthur Blair, Orwell was an English novelist, best known for "Animal Farm" and "1984.""Animal Farm," set on a barnyard with animals as the characters, is Orwell's expression of anti-Sovietism. "1984" is Orwell's interpretation of the future. He saw it as having an omnipresent demagogue known as "Big Brother."Orwell also wrote "Down and Out in Paris and London," after having lived among the lower classes in Europe. Orwell later wrote on his dread for communism in "Homage to Catalonia."

75 Years Ago* For the first time, so far as the records show, a prisoner has been sentenced by a U.S. court to be confined in the Carroll County Jail. Benjamin F. Poole, a farmer and businessman of this county, was indicted in the District Court of the United States at Baltimore on account of the operation of a still for the manufacture of whiskey on one of his farms, near Granite. He was sentenced to pay a fine of $100 and to be confined in the county jail for 90 days. -- Union Bridge Pilot, July 2, 1920.

At the sound of the bell they were off. Five squealing pigs racing around an oval track, kicking up their hooves in the Dash for Mash."I understand the loser is going to be invited to my house for dinner tonight," the announcer joked as the pigs scrambled by toward a bucket of slop.Just hours after the Harford County Farm Fair opened its gates yesterday, the first of wave of visitors was trampling the grass on the Equestrian Center grounds. Fair officials said they expected record crowds.

THE STAR of the show is late, but no one in the audience complains. Instead, anticipation and awe draw them closer to her straw-covered staging area, while her handlers consult in hushed voices. At the sidelines, dads lift toddlers onto their shoulders. Come on out, honey, someone in the crowd whispers. It's gonna be OK. In the age of reality TV and perpetual Internet sideshows, who'd have thought a humble barnyard birth would attract a following? Yet these are the best seats in the house at the Maryland State Fair: bleacher benches flecked with dried mud in a corner of the Cow Palace, where nature directs a timeless script.

When we think of Wisconsin, we think of it as the Nation's Heartland -- a placid place where you can park your car anywhere and leave it unlocked, with the key in the ignition, knowing that no matter how long you're gone, when you return, your car will be covered with cheese. But, more important, your car will still be there, because Wisconsin is a decent, honest place, populated by decent, honest, chunky people. Or so I always thought. But then I received, from several alert readers, a shocking article from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, written by Marilynn Marchione.

C.J.'s Beef Barn and Pub takes you back to the farm. With overalls on the wall and upside-down milk buckets as chandeliers, the farm decor complements the menu, which features barbecued beef and pork, as well as pit beef. "We used to be in a barn," said Cecil Jones, the owner. "When we shifted over to the strip center eight years ago, we decided to keep that theme." Jones is proud of the restaurant that he opened -- almost by accident -- 20 years ago. "We've been around a long time and have built up a good, solid business," he said.

WHAT DO the four H's stand for?" I asked a young boy grooming his heifer for presentation at the Maryland State Fair. He finished the long sweep of a brush before he replied with a grin: "Head, Heart, Hands, Health."

Baxter Black. The name sounds as if it belongs to a lasso-swinging cowboy, the type of guy who drives a muddy pick-up and gnaws beef jerky for breakfast. OK, so that last part is wrong -- on the morning we chatted, Black had just finished his usual repast of chocolate chip cookies and See's candies -- but the rest fits. Maybe you've heard of Black. When he's not roping steers back home in Arizona, he writes a little poetry, and does a regular gig on National Public Radio news programs like "All Things Considered" and "Morning Edition," where he treats listeners to his wacky verse and straight-on sensibilities.

Melissa, a Holstein from the Doll farm in Glenville, Pa., did her part to earn Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department a lot of money during its eighth annual barnyard bingo Saturday.The cow took two hours and 30 minutes to mark the winning square. During that time, the Fire Department sold out of pit beef and pit ham, said Fire Department historian Jim Buckley.Figures were unavailable on what the fire company netted from the fund-raiser, but proceeds from bingo ticket sales will go to its building fund, Buckley said.
