Conservative Catonsville, a town long known for its Mayberry-like appearance, is getting a new-age face lift.Along Frederick Road, the town's main street, a decades-old pharmacy and a dusty hardware shop sit near a health food store and a building offering classes in massage, yoga and vegetarian cooking. A trendy bagel shop has opened, t'ai chi lessons are available, and ceramics classes attract both neighborhood folks and "Yuppie types."The changes have come over the past five years, as Catonsville has made room for comfort-oriented, holistic businesses alongside the more traditional merchants that have served area families for decades.

I live in Sweden and work from home, so I rarely come down with colds. However, the other day I got a whopper - a sore throat, a horrible runny nose and a really bad cough - so I decided to try Kan Jang. Kan Jang is a popular cold remedy here produced by the Swedish Herbal Institute. I started on Kan Jang a day ago and was surprised by the results. My runny nose is completely gone, and my cough has subsided drastically. The postnasal drip that has been driving me nuts for a couple of years is gone.

Gordon's Market in one of the state's most prosperous commercial districts -- just off Rockville Pike in Montgomery County -- and things are going great.

I have come across several recipes that call for quick-cooking barley but have been unable to find any in local stores. Any ideas where quick-cooking barley is sold or who the manufacturer is? Mother's sells a quick-cooking barley that tends to be found in health-food stores and in the health-food sections of supermarkets. You can order directly from Mother's at mothersnatural.com (call 630-595-8919). Frankly, I had never heard of quick-cooking barley, so this question gave me an opportunity to learn something.

Looking for puffed rice flavored with spinach and kale? Have a hankering for ginseng ginger ale or maple-rosemary marinade? Well, Baltimore, your wait is almost over. You'll be able to find those items and more at Trader Joe's, a quirky cross between a health-food store, supermarket and discount center, which opens Friday in Towson. This will be the fourth Maryland location for the company that started as a convenience store in California and has grown to 131 locations in 11 states by catering to consumers who relish the unusual but don't want to pay a lot for it. "We've had 15 calls a day from people wanting to know when we're opening," said Mark Grumbach, the store's manager, who is called "commander" in keeping with Trader Joe's nautical theme.

Annapolis' Web site, e-mail are down Don't feel bad if some Annapolis city official hasn't replied to your e-mailed message. The city's e-mail and Web site have been down since Friday, said Thomas W. Roskelly, a spokesman for the city. City workers could not receive or send e-mail to outside servers as of late yesterday afternoon. The city's Web page (www.ci.annapolis.md.us) can only be accessed using its alternate address (209.62.147.11). Roskelly said the problems stem from a recent change in Internet providers.

Q. I recently read your column about the young man whose feet were smelling up his sister's house. My son had the same problem, and the remedy I found worked great. I bought a chlorophyll drink at a health-food store. Within 24 hours he was scent-free. A.Thanks for the tip. Others have also reported benefits from chlorophyll. We don't know how it might work, but you don't need a double-blind, placebo-controlled study to tell you if someone's feet still stink. Another reader offered this: "The only solution we found for my husband's smelly feet was for him to have more than one pair of shoes.

Charles Mindell, a Baltimore pharmacist and owner of a pioneering health food store, died of kidney disease Friday at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. The Pikesville resident was 90. Born and raised in Baltimore, he graduated from Forest Park High School, where he was captain of the basketball team. Soon after graduating from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in 1937, Mr. Mindell opened his own store on East North Avenue. As a young pharmacist, he changed the spelling of his last name from Mindel to Mindell to distinguish himself from his cousin Charles Mindel, a prominent Baltimore attorney.

Q.We were glad to see your article about hot, spicy soup for headaches. My husband has been plagued with headaches from an early age. Using hot salsa with chips at the onset of a headache has definitely stopped two headaches! I am attempting to find capsaicin in another form. The health food store has cayenne pepper capsules that contain capsaicin. Do you think they would help? A.The people who have shared their experience with fast relief have used hot and spicy soups. Capsaicin gives hot peppers their kick, and we suspect this is responsible for the pain relief.
