Of late, my life has been marked by some unnecessary conversation, and I'm going to put a stop to it. Right away! Though I must concede that this temporal qualifier is probably unnecessary. This came to my attention last weekend, when my husband and I were out gardening, or, more accurately, preparing to garden. In our average-size yard, there is always at least a full weekend's worth of nasty spring cleanup to do before we even get to the really fun part of gardening, such as taking a break on the patio with a glass of iced tea. One of our son's friends had just been dropped off at our home.

Just like gas prices, the cost of eating out continues to creep up. But the $5 lunch is not yet a thing of the past. A wide range of restaurants, cafes and carryout spots still offer midday meals that won't empty your wallet. Here are five places where five bucks can still fill you up. Angelo's Carry Out 3600 Keswick Road; 410-235-2595 A massive 18-inch slice of cheese pizza and a can of soda only cost $4.39 at this Hampden eatery. The trick is figuring out the best way to eat it -- it's too big to pick up all at once.

You'd think Ed Norris would be sick of secret rendezvous by now. But when the mayor of Baltimore asked to meet him on the QT at a Hunt Valley hotel, he was game. No matter that officially, the city was snubbing Norris, with police leaders refusing to appear with the ex-con ex-commish at last week's TV "town hall" meeting on crime. Privately, Sheila Dixon wanted his two cents. So she approached him, spokesman Anthony McCarthy said, through "some of her police contacts who are still big supporters of Ed Norris" - not the usual channel for mayoral meeting planning.

Iced tea, an American invention more than 100 years old, is new again. Look around. Everyone is swilling the beverage. That broader market has led to a 12 percent increase in iced-tea sales at fast-food and casual-dining operations since 2001, comparable to increases in coffee sales, according to the NPD Group, a consumer research group based in Port Washington, N.Y. With that demand, iced tea - both brewed and instant - also is being transformed with...

NEAR EXIT 351, I-40, TEXAS-- --April 1985 - exactly 22 years ago - in a Sports Illustrated article, author George Plimpton introduced the world to a baseball prospect like none other, a pitcher named Sidd Finch whose eccentricities were as unbelievable as his fastball, clocked by New York Mets officials at 168 mph. One week after Plimpton exposed the Mets' top-secret prodigy, Finch disappeared. Or at least he seemed to. Perhaps he's who you really are. Do you have anything that would prove it?

Andy Williams was just plain wrong. For the party-panicky, the holidays are definitely not "the most wonderful time of the year." It may not be the going-out part that bothers the festivity-phobic. It's the terrifying idea that people might just stop by. And they're going to expect you to feed them. Sometimes your own family does it to you. "I had a lady call me to say that her husband was bringing home 10 people that night," said Heather Joye Bender of LifesCelebrations Inc. in Skokie, Ill. Bender has been a party planner for about six years.

Kaye Goble of Salisbury, N.C., was looking for a recipe for her son for Mango Iced Tea. She said he was served the tea when he stayed at a bed-and-breakfast in Savannah, Ga., and found it to be very refreshing and fruity without being overly sweet. Ellen Bourdeaux of Oxford, Miss., sent in a recipe for a version of Mango Iced Tea that comes courtesy of Bobby Flay and the Food Network. The recipe is easy to prepare and quite a nice twist on regular iced tea. I had no trouble finding the mango nectar in my local grocery store.

HOW DO YOU MAKE HOMEMADE ICED TEA? Most tea producers sell blends especially suited to serving cold. The designated iced-tea blends are more commonly found in Southern markets than in local ones, but you can make perfectly good iced tea from regular hot-tea blends. I did that with three mass-market teas: Lipton, Tetley Classic Blend and Bigelow English Teatime. But pouring hot tea over ice results in an unpalatably weak solution. To do it right, you have to cool your tea to room temperature.

WHEN YOUR DAY is devoted to drinking iced tea, sitting on a porch reading novels and thinking about what's for supper, you know you are on vacation. That is what I did recently. It was an immobile type of family vacation, one where the brood hunkers down and follows the daily regimen of eating, drinking, taking a dip (in the Atlantic) with pauses for reading and napping. There is also the mobile type of family vacation. In that one, the clan goes airborne, visits far-flung sights and generally gets its horizons broadened.

The Big Bad Wolf hooked me, I have to admit, with his description of the collard greens: large leaf greens, not chopped, cooked with fatback the way they should be. I love barbecue, but I don't love the nondescript sides that often come with it. At the Big Bad Wolf's House of Barbeque, just about everything is made fresh with big, bold flavors. And then the back story intrigued me. For the last eight years, Scott Smith (otherwise known as the Wolf) worked at fine dining restaurants, including Charleston, Le Petit Louis and Corks.
