Madeline Johnson from Kelso, Wash., was looking for a recipe for making apricot-pineapple jam. She said she used to make it years ago, but she has been unable to locate the recipe. She said she is in her mid-80s but still likes to can and freeze. Her husband of 65 years likes to help. Amy Sadera of Parkville sent in a recipe for the jam that comes from the makers of Sure-Jell fruit pectin. It is a straightforward recipe that anyone who has some experience with canning should have no trouble with.

MOSCOW -- Summer in Moscow: the season to crowd into flower-filled parks and public squares to soak up every minute of cherished daylight, under the gaze of statues of Russian poets and generals. The season to reveal the pale skin of arms, legs and - when men unbutton their shirts - bellies long hidden under winter clothes. Also, the season to take ice-cold showers. Not, mind you, by choice. Moscow is about two-thirds of the way through its hot water shut-off, an annual annoyance that leaves millions of Russians without the modern convenience of a hot shower for weeks at a time.

MOSCOW - In the imagination, he works in a steam-filled room of hissing pipes, a giant wrench in his hand, and he spends his days in fiendish enjoyment, turning off monster-size valves, depriving Muscovites of hot water for weeks at a time. In reality, Mikhail Lapir works in an enormous but quiet office in the center of the city, a telephone in hand, and he spends his days in quiet regret, depriving Muscovites of hot water for weeks at a time. "Of course, it would be much better if we could work faster," Lapir says, "but you cannot always live with a rainbow overhead."

The Mount Royal Tavern closed temporarily Thursday night after it failed an inspection by the Baltimore City Health Department.  The failed inspection was a result of a lack of hot water running in the bathrooms and a fruit fly infestation, according to Brian Schleter, spokesman for the health department. Schleter confirmed the bar's owner addressed both of the issues Friday morning, which included installing a new hot water tank. He says the inspection came after the department received a complaint.

This weekend's expected 70-degree temperature is terrific news for those who love to rake leaves in the great outdoors and for those who hate to heat our vast indoors. As regular readers of this space know, every year I try to put off turning on the furnace in my Baltimore rowhome until Thanksgiving. It is a way to save money on heating bills, and over the years it has become, depending on which family member you ask, either a sign of character or proof of mental illness. This fall it has been so warm that I am considering delaying the fire-up date even longer.

Tiger Woods is on the course today at Augusta National, where he will be shooting for his first major title in nearly three years. You might have heard by now that he got into some hot water away from the course during that span. Apparently, Tiger likes the ladies. Since a slew of extramarital affairs came to light after he crashed his SUV into a tree in November 2009, Woods has been trying to clean up his image and his golf game (my colleague Kevin Van Valkenburg wrote an excellent piece about the Tiger Woods saga yesterday)

Health officials continue to investigate how contaminated hot water sickened nearly two dozen people at the Johns Hopkins at Keswick complex Monday, but the case is similar to previous ones involving faulty water-heating systems that let chemicals mix into drinking water. Twenty-three people at the Hopkins facility - home to about 600 health system and university administrative workers - fell ill with headaches, breathing difficulty and dizziness. The investigation confirmed that chemicals known as nitrates and nitrites in the water supply were responsible for the illnesses, but officials still are exploring their origin.

The housewives are still in the Bahamas. Karent, Joanna, Lisa and Lea sit around the breakfast table in their pajamas, pretending they just woke up, but wearing full faces of makeup.

The reviews are lukewarm at best for "What to Expect When You're Expecting," a movie loosely based on the hot-selling book series by Heidi Murkoff. Charming moms-to-be, including Anna Kendrick and Cameron Diaz, deal with the emotional and physical challenges of pregnancy, while their significant others, including Chris Rock, act boorish. Here are excerpts from reviews: -- Los Angeles Times: As Murkoff knew and mined so well, there is a lot of nature-made comedy to be found in the discomforts of distended bodies, raging hormones and altered relationships.

We had a vegetarian for dinner. Not as the main course, but as guest. He was amiable. And flexible. Not that he tolerated meat, or seafood or fish. Or even carrot puree bolstered with broth that remembered meat or seafood or fish. But he was willing to endure egg and cheese. And happy to bring his own. Tofurkey. Hardly necessary, I said. Or advisable, I thought. But he insisted. He's crazy about tofurkey. Which, apparently, is turkey. Made from tofu. I've got nothing against tofu.

Maryland's consumer protection division has filed complaints against two health clubs and their owners for not registering with the state. The state requires health clubs to be registered and bonded, which protects consumers from losing fees paid in advance if the club goes belly up. The state's targets: Body Talk, a Laurel club owned by Arnell Tunstall-Richardson; and Kassama's Okinawan Karate Studio in Baltimore owned by Ontagu-Ibrahima Kassama....

In starless, predawn darkness, I was driving on the Beltway last January, and I was stinking. I'd woken to find my Dickeyville home had no hot water - and no option but to take my friend Carolyn to her appointment, as I'd promised, without showering. For Carolyn and me, hassles like broken water heaters are reminders that she and I are widows. With one hand, we dial the repairmen and write the checks, and with the other grope for an absent hand. Two years earlier, Carolyn - tall, blond and almost catatonic with grief for her beloved Johnny - had sat beside me in our bereavement group.
