With whiskey barrel chairs, rows of colored glass bottles and mismatched antique teacups reminiscent of a Mad Hatter tea party, Twisted Teahouse is not your traditional teahouse. The Savage Mill business is half tea boutique, half consignment shop and host to tea parties both on and off site.   Angela Vogel, a mother of two and home day care provider, opened Twisted Teahouse in December after years of collecting antique teacups and hosting English-style tea parties in her Severn home.

Collaboration is risky business and blending different art forms can be down right dangerous. The English Eurythmy Theatre, however, is a master of weaving various disciplines together. Its "Storm's Child" -- seen Sunday evening at Towson State University's Stephens Hall Theatre and co-sponsored by The Waldorf School of Baltimore -- was a vibrant and moving tapestry of movement, music and poetry and theatre.Eurythmy is a sister to dance -- a system of movement with origins in works by turn-of-the-century educator Rudolf Steiner.

You could make a plausible argument that '80s pop star Thomas Dolby has been blinded with science. Since he was a teen, Dolby, now 55, has looked for ways to blend technology with sound - whether that meant writing a quirky synthpop anthem that rose to No. 5 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in 1982 ("She Blinded Me With Science") or inventing a cousin of the polyphonic ringtone likely playing on your cellphone today. Next week, Dolby will be named the Johns Hopkins University's first Homewood Professor of the Arts - a position that will enable him to help create a new center that will serve as an incubator for technology in the arts.

Vanns Spices, a privately owned company based in Baltimore, has added 6,000 square feet to its warehouse space and hired five workers as part of an expansion plan made possible by improved tracking and planning, company president Mick Whitlock said. The company expects a 15 percent increase in profits over the next year. Founded in 1981 by an art teacher who had started mixing and selling spices, it at times struggled to meet demand for custom-blend spices sent to New York restaurants.

One of the great feats in American marketing was teaching wine consumers to recognize grape varieties and buy accordingly. It's a concept that until recently was largely foreign to Europeans, who tended to identify their wines by a region rather than a grape. But in the span of a few decades, the California wine industry has taught even casual wine drinkers the vocabulary of the vine -- chardonnay, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel and many others.Now, many California winemakers are trying to get us to unlearn that lesson.

* Item: Country Inn Specialties Cereal* What you get: About 10 half-cup servings* Cost: About $5* Preparation time: Pour and serve* Review: When we have overnight guests, I feel terrible if I'm not home in the morning to cook breakfast. But sometimes that's the way it works out. So I was intrigued by Post's new Country Inn Specialties cereal blends. The blends aren't cheap, but they are a far cry from cornflakes. We tried the Green Gables Inn mix, and I have to confess that it was so good I found myself eating it right out of the bag. The cereal, based on a recipe from the California inn, features dried apples and cranberries, raisins, granola and tiny palmier pastries (like little almond-flavored cookies)

Put to culinary use, the medleys are appetizing without being overpowering.

DOWNLOAD: Abdu Ali, "Push + Slay" Sitting outside a Mid-Town Belvedere coffee shop on a warm October afternoon, Abdu Ali Eaton was dressed a lot like his music sounds. He wore beat-to-hell pink-and-yellow Adidas high-tops, black sweatpants that scrunch at the bottom and a vintage Cosby sweater that peaked through a buttoned-up oversize camouflage jacket. It's a messy, couldn't-care-less-what-anyone-thinks collage that defies categorization, yet somehow works in the 23-year-old's hands.

Q: My daughter has been caught up in the latest rage for young working women: going to secondhand shops to buy clothes.

Can you give me any idea how these businesses are run?A: By shopping at a resale shop, your daughter may find good quality designer clothes at a fraction of their original cost in department stores or boutiques.

In his quest to convince Americans he was doing all he could to ease their pain at the gas pump, President Bush announced last week he would grant delays in the transition to safer fuel-cleaning additives. For Maryland, at least, he was too late. The changeover to ethanol from MTBE as an additive to make gasoline burn cleaner is essentially complete. Except for a straggler here or there, supplies should be available at Baltimore-area service stations that sell specially blended summertime fuel, according to F. Peter Horrigan, executive director of the Mid-Atlantic Petroleum Distributors Association.

There were giants in those days. And some of them were only five feet tall. With her wide serge sleeves rolled brazenly beyond her elbows and a shiny baton in each hand, she stood at the edge of the St. Bernardine's School stage in West Baltimore in the spring of 1950, and - indifferent to our rehearsal fatigue - narrowed her eyes under the starched white headband and challenged us for the umpteenth time: "Again!" Once more we twirled our batons in sync three times, then threw them in the air and … up, up … down, down … thump, thump, thump, thump.

We all have the nightmare of being late to class, forgetting to study for the exam or being late to a test. At three score and four, I have now lived that nightmare.  I did not awake in a sweat. I did not leap from bed, throw on clothes and run downstairs, only to realize I am no longer in school. I sat quietly at my computer and felt ashamed to take a test one month late. Yes, an entire month for a woman, who, all of her adult life, has been prone to false starts, jumping the gun and trying to be ahead of deadlines.
