This year, 18 of us will get together for Thanksgiving. We all have food assignments. Mine has always been the turkey, the stuffing and the gravy. And since Thanksgiving is filled with tradition, we have always, always eaten a Butterball turkey. Not only do we slice up the big bird on Thursday, but the leftovers come out of the refrigerator on Friday and we have Thanksgiving dinner for lunch. So basically, I'm cooking turkey for 36. A few years ago, I ran all over North County looking for a large turkey.

Recently, I learned the U.S. is sending our tuna, salmon and chicken to China to be packaged. The article I read also noted that China has the filthiest facilities ever, and I have been eating wild-caught salmon fillets for years thinking I was doing such healthy eating. I just took the package from the freezer and yep, it was a product of China. This is the last packaged fish I will buy from Aldi. Monday, I went in Giant to get a few things for my sister. She's 98 and very selective about her purchases.

The employees were able to free themselves and call 911. The robber escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. - Nicole Fuller

Have you turned an old appliance over to Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.? You're in good company, if so. BGE said this week that customers have recycled 30,000 appliances through its Smart Energy Savers Program, which offers $50 "rewards" for giving up an old (but still working) refrigerator or freezer plus $25 more for recycling a room air conditioning unit at the same time. The effort is part of a statewide push to encourage energy efficiency. New appliances use less energy -- a lot less, in some cases -- than models built years ago, making them cheaper to operate.

Boston.--At some point all parents, except those with too much confidence and too little imagination, have lain awake at night thinking about how we would do it -- child-raising -- differently if we had a second chance. We would be braver or more cautious, more permissive or more authoritarian, more understanding or more judgmental.One of the givens of life, however, is that children are unique, or as Mr. Rogers would put it, special. We know that we can't raise a son or daughter one way, then start all over again with the same exact genetic material.

Hey lady, want a cow? Sure, who wouldn't want a cow, or a pig for that matter, but, gee, it's not like I have a meat freezer. The idea of one's own personal livestock, grown by a responsible farmer, is appealing. But there are typically two deal-killers -- the expense and the required freezer space, even a side of beef, half the cow, yields somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 pounds. Meat clubs, or meat shares, are a way of letting consumers cut their commitment to a whole-animal purchase.

Kenny Files said he "knew I had something" when he felt more than a little tug on his fishing line April 14 in the flood-swollen Potomac River near Williamsport in Washington County. Files, who was 12 at the time and has been fishing since "I was 3 or 4" pulled in a 31.75-pound muskie after casting a large white plastic grub lure. It turned out to be the state record. Files' father, Ken, said he was a bit surprised at his son's big haul. He had been fishing the same waters across from their home Falling Waters, W.Va., and had not caught anything bigger than a 9 1/2- pound largemouth bass at their regular fishing spot.

When Colleen Ballantine, Cheryl Sanders and Bradley Kennedy size up meat for their freezers, they're thinking three things: free-range, low-fat, clean of antibiotics. The three women are deer hunters, and their market of choice is the woods of Maryland. With consumer demand rapidly growing for animals raised humanely and meat free of things not found in nature, supermarkets are stocking bison and pasture-raised beef at premium prices. But hunters -- especially women -- say white-tailed deer are nearby and plentiful, healthful and economical.

Cash for Appliances just got cooler. Starting Friday, Marylanders can apply for $500 rebates on new central air conditioners under the popular federal program backed by stimulus dollars. State officials announced Monday that they plan to extend rebates to purchases of energy-efficient models in four new categories. State residents replacing old appliances also will be able to apply for $500 rebates on air-source heat pumps, $100 for freezers and $25 for room air conditioners. Only purchases of Energy Star-rated models made after Friday will be eligible, according to the Maryland Energy Administration, which runs the state's program.

A Maryland woman described by prosecutors as a torturer and maimer of her adopted girls was convicted Monday of killing two of them and stuffing their bodies into a freezer, and inflicting more than 80 injuries on the third. "What she did was absolutely horrendous," said Laurence Foley, foreman of the jury that deliberated for about 90 minutes inside a Montgomery County courthouse. "There was an overwhelming amount of evidence." The case stunned the region and cast a spotlight on the District of Columbia's child welfare agency, which had allowed Renee Bowman, 44, to adopt the three girls.
