I ♥ apples, but it's pretty difficult to find a drink that incorporates the fruit well. (In other words, doesn't make it taste like a disgusting Jolly Rancher-infused swill of sugar.) So it's a bit of a surprise that I've managed to find one now, in the dead of winter, and at Riptide by the Bay in Fells Point, of all places. Actually, the laid-back bar, known more for crab deals in the summer, has a pretty nice cocktail program going on. And its Hot Spiked Homemade Apple Cider ranks high on the list.

Soup's On opened back in February above a natural foods store in Mount Vernon, a few blocks from the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. This is a hidden space that you meet up a short flight of stairs from a single door at street level. Over the decades, a bunch of cafes and carry-outs have tried to make a go of it up there. The most notable success was Soo's Kimchee House. A few of the other attempts seemed doomed from the start.

The Hampden Village Merchants Association made an expensive promotional float for the Mayor's Christmas Parade on Dec. 8, but when a snow storm canceled the parade, the float became moot and merchants were left out in the cold. On Friday, still bound and determined to get bang for their buck, association members staged a one-float parade up and down West 36th Street (The Avenue), Hampden's man commercial corridor. Two bicyclists, including newly named Merchant of the Year Will Bauer, aka Lou Catelli, pedaled laboriously to get the attached float rolling.

* Item: Prego 2 1/2 -Pound Family Entrees* What you get: 5 servings* Cost: About $6* Preparation time: 31 minutes in microwave, 80 to 85 minutes in conventional oven* Review: These family-size entrees are a lifesaver. If you're too tired to cook or don't have time to prepare something from scratch, you can put these on the table without worrying that you're giving appetites short shrift. We tried the Fettuccine Florentine With Chicken. The spinach and mushrooms were fresh, the chicken was tender and the whole dish tasted homemade.

Credit the thick crust (a tad sweet), the ample size and the hearty filling.

Other flavors include spinach, broccoli Cheddar, and an Italian blend made with zucchini and tomatoes.

City police and federal agents were questioning a retired Bethlehem Steel Corp. machinist after raiding his Highlandtown rowhouse yesterday afternoon and seizing more than 100 firearms -- many of them homemade -- along with tools, thousands of rounds of ammunition and several boxes of black powder, authorities said. A city dump truck and a police pickup truck were used to carry away the property, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman. The man, in his early 60s, had been the subject of an investigation by the Police Department's intelligence unit after information was received that he had been making weapons in the basement of the home in the 500 block of S. East Ave., Moses said.

As antique cars rolled along Rogers Avenue in the 14th annual Mount Washington Spirit of Independence Day parade, one stuck out more than any other. It looked like a fancy soap box derby car, and its owner, Dan Meisner said it was "manufactured right here in Mount Washington. " The car, with Meisner's 3-year-old daughter, Ethna, riding in the passenger seat, was a homemade Lotus 7. The real thing sells for around $50,000, Meisner said, but he bought blueprints for a 1959 Lotus 7 for about $2,000 in 2001 and spent several years building it with a body made of aluminum and a frame made of steel tubing.

Several years ago, I discovered a huge hole within a specimen tree where a large limb joined the trunk. Since the hole was facing upward, too, it was constantly collecting rainwater that was rotting the tree. However, I plugged the hole and was able to save the limb and the tree with a homemade patch that's still in good shape. Here's how: I began rescuing our tree by scraping out as much of the rotten wood as was possible. Then with a paint brush, I disinfected the hole by saturating it with lime sulfur, a powerful, plant fungicide that should only be applied to green growth when woody plants are dormant.

Teens learn on YouTube to make the "bombs" with a few cheap, household items, then travel in groups late at night — eager to hear the boom, laugh with friends and gauge whatever damage they've wrought. According to Lt. Carlton Saunders of Howard County's office of the fire marshal, teenagers consider it a prank when they experiment with "bottle bombs," which have been found over the years in counties all across the Baltimore region. The explosions are rarely associated with damage greater than a busted mailbox, and are even more rarely associated with injuries, Saunders said.

Who knew that Goose Feathers could slide like silk going down the throat? Or that Cow's Feet really hit the sweet spot on the tastebuds? Apparently David and Kelly Keyes of Keyes Creamery at Mt. Felix Farm found these secret ingredients and ice cream lovers in Harford County can be glad they did. Ice cream never tasted so fresh as it does scooped into a bowl or in one of their famous ice cream pies. That's because the frozen treat is made from milk harvested only during the grazing season, which makes all the difference in taste, whether it's black raspberry or cappuccino crunch.
