Martin O'Malley's forecast of hard times for Maryland if sequestration comes to pass: Perhaps the governor should have been working harder all along to improve the industrial diversity in the state instead of working so hard to bring more and more government to Maryland.

For 17 generations, members of Catherine Webb's family have worked or lived on Springfield Farm in northern Baltimore County, where chickens and turkeys roam the hilly ground and, three days a week, Webb sells eggs and chicken meat from a farmhouse garage-turned-store. In Webb's view, such direct-to-consumer sales will sustain the farm's operation for future generations, which include her two daughters and her sister's children. But neighbors have fought a 2006 proposal by her parents to build a farmer's roadside stand inside a three-level barn.

Which came first? The bird or the egg? The answer is both. The clever combination inspires these bird seed eggs from Gardener's Supply. Hang them in your favorite tree and watch the birds flock to them this winter.

Ellen Carpenter delayed marriage until she found Mr. Right, but by that time she was 38 years old, making it much more difficult to have children. After getting pregnant with the help of hormone injections, the Frederick County resident lost the baby — a girl with severe body malformations — in the first trimester. She explored other options and chose to use frozen eggs from a donor. Today, Carpenter is the mother of a rambunctious 18-month-old named Zachary. A growing number of women are turning to frozen eggs to solve their fertility problems as the controversial procedure that long raised safety concerns slowly gains acceptance.

John L. Walz, a former typesetter who later ran a Carroll County farm that produced eggs, died of cancer Sunday at his son's Mount Airy home. He was 82. John Louis Walz was born and raised in Baltimore and was a 1948 graduate of City College.

Why does such nonsense as the mayor of Boston wanting to ban Chick-fil-A get such publicity ("Banned in Boston? If mayor had his way," July 27)? It's utter nonsense! One idiot trying to ruin a business. I do not understand how one person can cause such turmoil, but little did he know he has helped Chick-fil-A in a huge way! I usually never want to thank an idiot, but thanks, Mayor Thomas Menino. I have a feeling that more people than ever before will dine there. Senora McGuire, Dundalk
