I would like to thank the generous lady at the Laurel Regional Hospital. On Saturday, June 29, my daughter was in the hospital and desperately wanted to watch television. The cafeteria and gift shop were closed and I needed exact change ($8) to insert in the machine to get a card for TV in the room. I was at the front desk asking everyone if they had change. A visitor gave me $8 and I gave her a $20 bill. While I was inserting the money in the machine she slipped the $20 in my bag. She was too generous and I don't know how to thank her.

LAST Saturday night in Baltimore I slept with a couple I'd never met before. Well, it's a long story that came about because of the shortage of hotel rooms in the area.I had arrived in the city early in the evening to enjoy dinner with friends. Before we knew it time had flown. It was 3 a.m. -- too late for me to drive back to Rockville alone. So I began calling local hotels, searching for a room for the night.It quickly became clear to me that I would not find a room -- even the Hunt Valley Inn, 18 miles from downtown, didn't have a room.

Aside from the New York synagogues, the exhibit will include a Nadel painting of a former Baltimore synagogue, Shaarei Zion, at 3459 Park Heights Ave. ++ On Monday, the evening before the show opens, Nadel will give a slide show and talk, "Synagogues: More than Monuments of Culture?"

At more than 2,100 miles long, the Appalachian Trail is a dream crusher for many a hiker who has envisioned a walk from Georgia to Maine in one season. Unrelenting summer weather, elevation changes and rugged terrain combine to trash all but the strongest mentally and physically prepared hikers. Only 25 percent finish what they started. Even the 41-mile piece that cuts through Maryland — the second-shortest segment of all the states and fairly flat by AT standards — can feel overwhelming.
