The Revs. Tracy Bruce and Stephen Davenport travel to Haiti every January to visit the music school in Port-au-Prince, the church in St. Etienne and the other development projects they support in the poorest nation in the Americas. But with the school and the church now destroyed, and no word yet from many of the friends with whom the husband-and-wife Episcopal clergy members have worked over the decades, they expect this month's trip to be different. "There's nothing that's coming out of Haiti at all in terms of communication right now from anybody on the ground," Bruce, rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Glyndon, said Friday.

WASHINGTON -- Picture yourself in your most tiring work setting -- the end of a long day of entering data into a computer, listening to speeches, taking an important test, directing air traffic. You feel yourself losing concentration. What do you need? A break? A cup of coffee? A cold beer? Guess again.Peppermint. Or a fragrance called Muguet that smells like lily of the valley.Those were the findings in a study by two University of Cincinnati psychologists, William Dember and Joel Warm, released yesterday at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science here.

Q. I have been taking fish oil concentrate for heart health. After reading other readers' comments on fish oil restoring their hair to its original color, I checked mine in the bright sunlight. Lo and behold, a lot of my gray is gone. I have bleached my hair for years, but the new root growth, which was mostly gray, is now brown. A. We agree with you that these tales are amazing.

I HAVE DONE a number of dangerous things in my life. Surfed 15-foot waves on Oahu's North Shore. Rafted down raging rapids on Idaho's Salmon River. Chaperoned a seventh-grade mixer. But I have concluded that I put my life in greater jeopardy by driving to work every day.I have been nursing this subconscious fear of driving for the past couple of years, but I no longer can keep it in the deep recesses of my mind. After almost getting broadsided last week, the dread has become a preoccupation.

"Hello . . . Hello .. . you know," the caller says sheepishly, after identifying herself, "I know I'm returning someone's call, but I forget whose.""That's OK," the person on the other end replies. "I know I did call you, but I can't remember why."Scenes like this are becoming common as baby boomers slouch more forgetfully than regretfully -- toward 50.Yet another pair of eyeglasses goes astray. More and more "belated birthday" greetings get sent, more and more belatedly. Important pieces of paper -- some, in fact, lists of things not to forget -- sit gathering dust in special places that no one can remember.
