The produce stands hold great appeal this time of year. Also a great amount of peel and skin. Vegetable peelers typically don't cost much, but they can make a big difference in how hard you have to work to get to that fresh asparagus, juicy peach or crisp apple. Which peeler is best? That question was harder to answer than we thought. With so many on the market - stationary blades versus swiveling ones, serrated edges and straight, Y-shaped versus vertical designs - each of the nine we tested had its pluses and minuses, depending on what it was being used for. Two of our purchases were "julienne" peelers only, meant not for removing skin but for creating matchstick cuts of fruit and vegetables.

First off: Welcome to the club, Maureen Dowd . Now, let's get down to it. HBO's “Game of Thrones” is back (!) for what should be the best season yet. (If the writers stay true to the books, that is. So far, so good.) Season 4 opened with the episode “Two Swords," which made a lot of right moves. The episode invoked Westerosi history; introduced a badass new character, the Red Viper; checked in on all four of the major characters (Daenerys, Tyrion, Jon and Arya)

When Wesley Snipes declined the television reprise of the half-vampire superhero he played in three respectable B-movies, fan message boards predicted Blade: The Series would be the worst sci-fi show in action-adventure history. Which would, of course, be impossible, considering that history includes such cable and syndicated monsterpieces as Earth: Final Conflict, TekWar, Andromeda and Total Recall 2070. Lost in the uproar over the loss of Snipes was the good news: David S. Goyer, who wrote all three Blade theatricals, and directed the last one, signed on to shepherd the franchise's transition to Spike, where it will be the man-boy netlet's first scripted drama.

A woman was not injured after biting into a pastry containing a razor blade on Thursday, Howard County police said. The woman discovered the blade, which police identified as the size used in a shaver, in a Joey's brand crumb cake she purchased from a BP gas station in the 15000 block of Frederick Road in Lisbon. The blade appeared to be pushed through the plastic wrapping, which likely occurred in the store after the item was stocked, police said. Police said the remaining Joey crumb cakes were removed and returned to the manufacturer, and no other items appeared to have been tampered with.

ISLE OF WIGHT, Va. - Chris Ludwig is licking a plant. It is a pretty little plant, a slender blade of blue-eyed grass, which the state biologist just plucked from a sandy ridge above the Blackwater River. Though he loves plants of all kinds, his wet embrace is meant to determine if this specimen is rare in Virginia or just another piece of blue-eyed grass. "You want to see if the stalk is slightly glaucous," Ludwig says. He quickly catches himself, realizing that his scientific terminology has just sailed over the head of his layman guest.

The DeWALT Industrial Tool Co. of Hampstead, a subsidiary of Black & Decker Corp., is recalling about 25,000 framing saws because of a faulty cutting-blade guard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said this week.The problem is that the lower blade guard on the saw can fail to fully close during use, leaving the blade exposed and presenting a risk of serious cuts to the user, the commission said.DeWALT has said that it is aware of 15 incidents in which the guard failed to close, with eight reports of lacerations and three cases in which stitches were required, according to the Washington-based safety commission.

Aerospace firm Sigma Space Corp. has joined fellow Maryland companies Under Armour and Lockheed Martin in developing technology to help the U.S. Speedskating team at the Winter Olympics. Lanham-based Sigma Space said Friday its optical and mechanical engineers have been at work on a secret project since the fall to enhance skaters performance. Through its "Blade Runner" mission, the company aimed to build a tool that could polish skate blade sides, which never go through the sharpening common to blade bottoms.

I resent the necessity, the time spent, and the discomfort, and still every morning I take up a small blade and drag it across my face. Shaving is the most disagreeable daily chore. Don't bother to offer suggestions. I have tried electric razors and safety razors, pre-shave lotions and alcohol-laden aftershaves, improved blades with advanced features and primitive blades, shaving foam. shaving gel, shaving soap, hot towels, emollients. (No straight razors. My powers are somewhat under a cloud in the morning, and I'd just as soon not cut my throat.)

Former Ravens linebacker and outspoken same-sex marriage advocate Brendon Ayanbadejo is turning his attention from playing time to publishing. Weeks after being released by the Super Bowl champions, Ayanbadejo announced today that he will serve as the guest editor of a sports-themed issue of LGBT newspaper The Washington Blade. "I'm extremely honored to be able to work with the Blade," Ayanbadejo said at a press conference. "I think through sports is the easiest way to reach a lot of people in a demographic that typically wouldn't hear about equality and why it is so near and dear to us. " Since his playing days ended -- for now, at least -- Ayanbadejo has continued advocating for the LGBT community, has made several media appearances and took part in the NFL's inaugural sports journalism boot camp.

It wasn't the neon-green comb tucked in a loose-leaf notebook that caught the eye of a TSA screener at BWI Monday morning — it was what the comb concealed: a knife with a 4-inch blade. Pamela Whitfield, 31, of Hampton, Va., was charged with carrying an unauthorized weapon through airport security, a misdemeanor, after an X-ray machine operator noticed an "unusual image," said Kawika Riley, a Transportation Security Administration spokesman. The comb was lying along the binder's spine among some papers and a folder.

The equipment was piled high on the counter at the sporting goods store, but the bill that came with it — to Rich Berman's surprise — was even higher. He called his mother looking for some help. "Mom," Berman said, "you are not going to believe what your granddaughter wants to do now …" With a pair of skates, a stick, a helmet and pads for just about every part of the body — all used equipment, which came to $500 (father and grandmother split the tab)

My husband and I live in Columbia, and we traveled on a South American cruise for two weeks in December and fell in love with Ushuaia, Argentina. We felt the mystique of being at the "end of the world" and as far south as you can get before heading to Antarctica. Traveling the Beagle Channel to the Tierra del Fuego National Park provided us with the most amazing landscapes and took us past the "lighthouse at the end of the world." There are few places we have seen that are this beautiful and magical.

David S. Goyer grew up in an Ann Arbor, Mich., home where books were everywhere, and he was raised by his mother to believe that reading was "pure pleasure, not some chore or duty." So although other relatives may have expected Goyer to study law or medicine when he was accepted at the University of Michigan, his mother, whom he describes as a "frustrated artist," not only accepted but also encouraged her son to concentrate on writing. But did she ever imagine his talent would be put in the service of comic books?

For most guys, Thanksgiving is the day we have a tango with a turkey, an exercise known as carving the bird. Every year as the big meal approaches, I get the urge to buy an electric knife. This would be a purchase fueled by nostalgia, not culinary motives. Nowadays I cut with a sharp, thin-bladed carving knife, but part of me wants to attack the bird with a noisy, vibrating blade, the way my dad used to do it. I have vivid memories of my father, who died in 1998, quivering Hamilton Beach in hand, laying siege to the turkey with all the fervor, and much of the same technique, he used to trim a hedge.

What to get for the multisport outdoors person on your list who has one of everything? How about Wenger's Ranger 73 Swiss Army knife ($85; wengerna .com), a multiple-use tool that looks the part and plays it, too. The Model 73 has a tough, 4-inch locking blade, a tough pair of needle-nose pliers with wire cutter, two screwdrivers, a wire stripper, an awl, a cap opener and a corkscrew. (Nine other models have different blade and tool configurations, so check the inventory online.) The package is wrapped in a tough, black housing that protects the tools and is easy to grip.
