Anne Arundel County police say they've arrested a Naval Academy midshipman after he allegedly threatened a taxi driver with a butter knife. Police say a cab driver told them he drove two men from a bar in Annapolis to a home on Bay Head Road on the Broadneck Peninsula early Sunday morning. One of the men went into the home to get money for the fare, but returned without enough money, according to police. The two then ran into the house, and one of the men returned with a knife and ran toward the cab driver, who was in the driveway.

He was granted probation before judgment.

When I was a kid, I would get very bad nosebleeds. If nothing else worked, my mother would get out her keys and drop them down the back of my neck. I wish I knew why it worked so well. We have heard from many people who have had success stopping nosebleeds with keys or a cold butter knife against the back of the neck. We don't know why this trick works, but one reader offered the following from his experience as a medic doing water rescue: "The keys work because of the mammalian dive reflex.

Sectioning a grapefruit can be a humbling task, reminding you of your shortcomings. Who needs that? But if you slog through it, as I did recently, there are rewards. "Sectioning," removing the skin, pith and membranes, is a procedure that sounds like it should be performed by a surgeon with a scalpel, not a guy with a chef's knife standing over a cutting board. But there I was one recent afternoon with the knife, the grapefruit and the cutting board. I was also encircled by bottles of raspberry vinegar, champagne vinegar, a jar of raspberry preserves, some torn lettuce leaves and a stack of julienne zucchini.

Selling a home can be incredibly stressful, which is why many of us can appreciate aggressive real estate agents who work hard to make a sale. That said, there is a major difference between assertive and unethical. Anita Grey wasn't quite sure what to do upon discovering that a potential buyer's real estate agent had used a butter knife to pry open a storm door to show her Odenton home while the 53-year-old retired office worker was out visiting friends. "No one had called to set up an appointment," Grey said.

The hottest table in Baltimore isn't in Baltimore. It's Volt in Frederick. Credit the recent spike in interest to owner/chef Bryan Voltaggio's success on Bravo's "Top Chef" reality show. Suddenly, it's impossible to get a reservation on a weekend unless you call weeks in advance. Suddenly, everyone is telling me Volt was where he or she went for an anniversary or special birthday. Voltaggio was turning out noteworthy New American cuisine in his late-19th century brick mansion before all the TV hoopla started, but he hadn't become as well-known in Baltimore as he was in Washington.

I turned 50 this weekend. And I find myself both more contented and filled with great expectations than any other time in my life. Old enough to have learned a few important lessons -- some simple and hard, others obvious but elusive - I am still young enough to benefit from them. Long ago, I gave up booze and its sibling shenanigans, but still break out the cast iron skillet around 10 p.m. - lifting it the extent of my exercise - to fry up hard salami and cheese like they used to do at DiNitti's back when Little Italy was Little Italy.

You know how sometimes you'll be in a restaurant and the waiter brings your food and you take a bite, only it's so god-awful that you spit the food into your hand and fling it angrily at the ceiling and then stand up, backhand all the silverware and glasses off your table and scream: "You miserable worm, you expect me to eat this?!"You haven't done that? Well, I have. Suddenly, the whole place is quiet and everyone is staring at you with a combination of shock and fear and . . . I don't know, something else, too.Awe, maybe.
