Every offseason this happens. Sometimes it happens three, four, five times in the winter. A reporter attaches the Orioles to a star free agent's name. And then those of us who cover the team locally will get inundated with questions about whether the Orioles will land that player. Right now, it is Texas outfielder Josh Hamilton. After Fox Sports wrote Wednesday that the Orioles plan to pursue Hamilton, MLB Network did several minutes on whether Hamilton would be a fit in Baltimore.

One of my challenges as a new bride in 1957 was learning how to cook fresh vegetables. Some recipes said to cover with cold water and some mentioned hot water. My mother told me that vegetables grown underground (now called root vegetables) get covered with cold water and vegetables that are grown above the ground get started in hot water. According to Harold McGee, dean of American food-scientists, your mother was absolutely correct. McGee, author of On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen (Scribner, 2004, $40)

I gather that there is some brouhaha today about a fast-food chain that serves mediocre fried chicken. (The One True Fried Chicken was made in an iron skillet by my mother and grandmother, and anything else is a pale and shoddy imitation.) Really, if you are going to eat fast food, Cincinnati chili is a far more satisfactory dish. Unfortunately, Skyline has no outlets in Baltimore, but I have a recipe for one variant of Cincinnati chili from the late Bob Johnson, my first news editor at The Cincinnati Enquirer , and I am willing to impart the secret to you. But first, a caution.

MARCH 12 WAS the kind of day you can get on the bay from late winter, nearly until summer -- pleasant and deadly.With air temperatures pushing the high 50s and no wind, Charles Lee Cecil may have felt he could easily swim to the nearby Choptank shore from his disabled boat that afternoon.But water temperatures were another story entirely, say Maryland Natural Resources Police, who found the Easton-area man's shoeless, shirtless corpse a few days later.The temperature of the Choptank was still less than 50, below which water is defined as "very cold," says the University of Manitoba's Gordon Giesbrecht, an expert on how cold affects human physiology.

As summer wanes and fall is still a promise, we make our annual exploratory trip to check on what we like to think of as our secret blackberry patch. (Actually it's not that secret, since we have permission from the landowner to pick.) We inspect every outcropping of canes, pinching the knobby fruit and nibbling an occasional berry to gauge ripeness. Lucky for blackberry lovers, this succulent and prolific fruit can be found throughout North America. Blackberries aren't ready for picking until late summer or autumn, depending to a great degree on region.

Shawn Kimbro will speak to the Coastal Conservation Association Maryland's newly revived Annapolis chapter Tuesday at the Boatyard Bar & Grill. He'll be discussing cold-water jigging as well as Careful Catch Maryland, a program started collectively by the CCA and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation on the best way to release fish after catching them. Kimbro will also talk about his self-published book, "Chesapeake Light Tackle – an introduction to light tackle fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. " The Baltimore Sun spoke to Kimbro last week about light-tackle fishing, the Careful Catch Maryland program and his book.

With flu season and the MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) staph infection upon us, we are urged to wash our hands frequently, usually "with warm, soapy water." My memories of Bacteriology 101 aren't clear, but I can't recall that warm water kills anything. Soapsuds, on the other hand, do carry nasty things away. Is there any science behind the "warm water" suggestion? You are absolutely right that warm water is no more effective than cold for removing germs. Soap and water don't kill germs, but only wash them off the surface of the skin.

NEW YORK -- Like airplanes backed up on a runway, dozens of pending multibillion-dollar corporate buyout deals involving such familiar names as Hilton Hotels and Clear Channel Communications are waiting to take off. But if Wall Street's instincts are correct, the global credit crunch might ground some of them. Plunging stock prices of companies that already have agreed to be bought at higher values suggest that investors believe some deals could be shaky. There's more at stake than big year-end bonuses on Wall Street.

SOLOMONS -- A sudden burst of wind overturned several sailboats yesterday afternoon in the harbor of Solomons in Calvert County, plunging students from a local sailing school into frigid waters. It proved a good lesson in the vagaries of weather - and one that left no one injured. Close to a dozen of the young boaters - all wearing wet suits and life jackets - found themselves dumped into the still-frigid water off the Solomons harbor, but quickly were rescued after the vessels capsized about 4:30 p.m. Weather across the region had changed abruptly as a cold front swept through - as evident from the winds at Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport increasing from 5 mph at BWI around 2 p.m. to gusts as strong as 28 mph later in the afternoon.

COLD-WEATHER BOATINGLast fall, one person among a group of sea duck hunters drowned after the anchor line fouled and the boat they were aboard in Eastern Bay capsized. This week, a kayaker who set out from Annapolis for St. Michaels in high winds last weekend was presumed to have drowned after his empty boat was found with his life jacket still aboard.Each year such cold-weather boating accidents kill more than 200 persons, according to statistics supplied by the Boat Owners Association of the United States.

You have to start somewhere. For BWI-Marshall Airport's efforts to expand international service, somewhere is Kangerlussaq, Greenland, home of musk oxen and the "all-ice" Hotel Igloo Village. "We are pleased that Air Greenland has chosen BWI as the airport of choice to inaugurate this service," airport boss Timothy L. Campbell said last week at a news conference, adding that "our efficient facilities and customs arrival process will be a huge asset to the Greenland passengers." Such as they are. Air Greenland's Boeing 757 will leave Baltimore once or twice weekly, but only from late May to late September.
