My mother once told me that water is what you bathe in, wine is what you drink and beer tastes like garbage. I never thought to ask her how she came to that conclusion about beer. When she died -- at 87, after following that formula faithfully -- she took her opinions to the grave. I inherited my mother's distaste for beer. Nonetheless, when my 24-year-old son proposed a beer trip to Belgium, I instantly agreed. Jonathan is good fun, his French is better than mine and he likes driving in foreign countries, which gave me the chance to absorb the architecture while he watched the road.

When I'm making roast chicken, I like to keep everything else very simple. I'll typically roast green beans or asparagus, but this time I decided to go with brussels sprouts. I know not everyone is a fan, but I guess I'm the odd one out. I really like them, and was reminded that I do not eat enough of them, so into the basket they went. Roasted Brussels Sprouts 1 lb brussels sprouts 1/2 tsp pepper 1 tsp salt Balsamic vinegar Heat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse brussels sprouts.

France and Ireland, and with them the rest of the European Economic Community, must bear responsibility for the ominous breakdown in world trade negotiations. Barring a revival of bargaining in good faith, a postwar system that fostered global economic growth through multilateral liberal trading rules might well be replaced. And with what? With bilateral deals, regional blocs and the kind of trade wars that spawn recessions, political instability and even armed hostilities.Considering the high stakes, some of the governments involvemust have been relieved that world attention was deflected by events elsewhere, especially in the Persian Gulf.

An hour before my scheduled return flight from Brussels, Belgium, I still didn't have my ticket in hand. I waited near the United Airlines counter for the courier representative to bring my ticket. He arrived just in time for me to be hustled through security and check-in and with only minutes to rush through the long airport terminal to the departure gate.My round-trip ticket from New York to Brussels cost me $100, and a few anxious minutes of waiting. I was an air courier, like thousands of other travelers each year.

BRUSSELS - On the way back from Kabul, I passed through Pakistan, the Persian Gulf, London and Belgium, where I had a variety of talks with Arab and Muslim journalists and business people and Muslim community leaders in Europe. All of them were educated, intelligent and thoughtful - and virtually none of them believed that Osama bin Laden was guilty. Let's see, there was the serious Arab journalist in Bahrain who said that Arabs could never have pulled off something as complex as Sept.

The addition of sugar and chicken stock give the dish a somewhat sweet yet rich and balanced flavor and the toasted pecans on top finish the dish perfectly.

"Baltimore." "Where do you go to school?" "Brussels." "I've never heard of Brussels, Md." "No. Brussels, Belgium." The coach pauses.

BRUSSELS -- To the uninitiated, the existential crisis splitting Belgium down the middle these days might seem like a (very) civilized war as told by Dr. Seuss, with the French-speaking Walloons on one side and the Dutch-speaking Flemings on the other. To continue the literary analogy, consider the library at Belgium's Leuven University. Make that two libraries. German armies had burned down Leuven's library in the two world wars, and it was rebuilt after each. But then in 1970, the last time the Flemings and the Walloons got seriously restive, the million-volume collection was carved into two: Odd-numbered books remained on the original campus in the Dutch-speaking part of the country, while even-numbered books went to a new Francophone school built in a field 17 miles to the south.

Pork roast is one of my fall favorites. The only problem? A pork roast takes time, which relegates it to weekend cooking. The next-best option for a weeknight meal is the smaller, lean pork tenderloin. It still offers the great flavor of pork, but takes only a fraction of the time to cook. I like to sear it quickly in a heavy skillet, then turn down the heat to finish the cooking. Brussels sprouts, another fine fall choice, make a good match to the pork and can be finished in the same skillet.

What do you recommend people put on their luggage tags? I put only a phone number because I had heard that thieves will know your home is vacant if you put your address on tags. You are wise not to put too much personal information on luggage ID tags, says Anne McAlpin, author of Pack It Up, a book-DVD set that offers advice about packing smart. "Only put contact information that will be helpful to your airline" if your bags are lost, McAlpin says. "Writing down your home number if you're not there to answer the phone doesn't do any good."
