Editor's note: A young boy discovers the beauty and excitement of fireflies but realizes he can't keep them in captivity.On a summer evening I looked up from dinner, through the open window to the backyard.It was growing dark. My treehouse was a black shape in the tree and I wouldn't go up there now.But something flickered there, a moment -- I looked, and it was gone. It flickered again, over near the fence. Fireflies! "Don't let your dinner get cold," said Momma.I forked the meat and corn and potatoes into my mouth.

Q: I would appreciate information on the porcelain covered jar in this photo. It has been in my family for many years and is in perfect condition. On the bottom, it is marked "OHME -- Silesia -- Old Ivory."A: Your jar was made by the Hermann Ohme Porcelain Manufactory in Niedersalzbrunn, Silesia, Germany, now Walbrzych, Poland. The mark you described was used circa 1930. "Old Ivory" is the name of the pattern. Your covered jar would probably be worth about $125 to $135.Q: I have a stoneware crock, 11 inches high and decorated with a paddle-tail bird and flowers in blue.

On the "Confessions" section of scarymommy.com , Jill Smokler lets other moms share their most intimate thoughts and concerns anonymously. The results can be comforting ("I do that, too!") but also disturbing ("So, wait, you think your ex-boyfriend is actually the father of your baby but you're kind of fine with it because your husband is cheating on you with your sister?") We asked Smokler, "Do you ever read a confessional and think, 'OK, you are absolutely nuts?'" "Oh, yeah," she said.

In last week's Recipe Finder, 1 cup of sugar was omitted from the ingredients list for the million dollar pie. However, instructions for making the pie specifically called for 1/2 -cup sugar to be added to egg yolks and the remaining 1/2 -cup sugar added to the egg whites, which may have been sufficient instructions for those interested in making the pie.Chef Gilles Syglowski laughs when he describes testing this recipe. "I was more interested in the results of the cake than the size of the jar it was baked in. Consequently I put it in a regular jar, and the neck was too small to get the cake out," he explains sheepishly.

Moonshine is as American as a tax revolt and almost as old as the hills. Technically, moonshine is homemade whiskey distilled without a permit -- untaxed and unregulated by the government and therefore illegal. It's most often associated with young corn whiskey, a spirit so raw it hits the stomach like a bolt of lightning. I was intrigued to discover recently that for those who like novelty or perhaps even like the taste of the stuff, it's possible to purchase a jar of young corn whiskey legally.

SLOT MACHINES are evil. Casinos are worse. And bringing them to Maryland will strike at the very fiber of the state.That was the message delivered by Bishop George Paul Mocko, leader of the regional synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, at an anti-casino pep rally staged last week by Gov. Parris N. Glendening.Oh, the bishop added, there was one other problem: Slot machines in Delaware have already cut into the church's profits from its own gambling nights there.The bishop's remarks were a frank reminder that, whatever comes out of the current debate over casinos and slot machines in Annapolis, Maryland is already awash in gambling.

Item: Ortega Salsa Prima What you get: 16-ounce jar Cost: About $3.25 Preparation time: Open jar and serve Review: Ortega's newest salsas are a little too heavy on tomato puree to be truly considered freshly made. On the plus side, the salsas brim with chunks of tomato, peppers and other vegetables. The Mexican Style was a mild and flavorful blend of tomato, corn, black beans, peppers and onion - a sort of Mexican corn salad you could almost enjoy straight from the jar. Unfortunately, the 3 Bell Pepper version - offered at medium heat only - was strangely flat.

Let's table, for the moment, our chat about how much, if anything, should be tipped to the folks who rustle up your morning coffee. But even customers who customarily would toss in their change, or a whole dollar bill, in the tip jar when they've paid with cash often leave el-zippo when paying with plastic. It's DipJar to the rescue, as reported on by Bon Appetit . "It's as simple as a cash tip jar but with the technology to accept and pass along tips left with credit and debit cards," according to the DipJar website.

I usually read Dan Rodricks ' commentaries to get his left of center take on local and national issues because he supports his points. However, in his latest piece about Mitt Romney he demonstrates the same class warfare that the current administration uses to castigate those who have followed the rules, taken risks and profited from their investments ("A man out of tune with the times," Jan. 22). Mr. Rodricks shows he has drunk the Democratic Kool-Aid by implying that Mr. Romney is part of a movement by the rich to regain the presidency.

Something about Jarred Jones ' official visit to Loyola this week felt very familiar to the John Carroll forward. Jones, a 6-foot-6, 185-pound senior, had made unofficial trips to the school before, but it wasn't necessarily the surroundings that triggered memories. It was his potential teammates.    “I knew most of the players on the team and already had a connection with them,” Jones said Wednesday. “It's more like a family.” Playing for a Baltimore Catholic League contender in John Carroll and an AAU power in Nike Baltimore Elite, Jones frequently played against or with some of the state's top high school players.

The print on the cocktail napkins at Fells Point's newest hot spot, Bond Street Social, says it all: "Socialize". The bar and restaurant, a warm, earthy, industrial lounge, is dedicated to this simple concept. "It's all about sharing", said General Manager Shane Gerken. "We're committed to that theme: from the aesthetics and design to our menus. " While the food, described as "high-end comfort" is based around the trendy small plates concept, Bond Street's social drinks, with their 80-ounce infusion jars, brings a unique new idea to the table.

Kensington. -- I have a bizarre project which, in the tradition of science, needs repeating. It has to do with conjuring a life form from its dark, airless, subterranean home. Junior and senior high school students take note, if you dread next spring's inevitable science fair: It's an easy project.Back in the mid 1950s, when I was about 13 years old and graduating from firebug preadolescence to building actual combustion engines, I also began wondering about atmospheric carbon dioxide: Would the eventual use of all the coal and oil in the word completely pollute the earth's atmosphere?

Making kernels jump If your popcorn doesn't pop, it may be too dry, says the Popcorn Board, a product marketing group. Try filling a 1-quart jar three-quarters full with unpopped kernels and adding a tablespoon of water. Cover with an airtight lid, shake the kernels until they absorb the water and store the jar in a cool place for two or three days. Then try popping the corn. Students' weighty issue Many students heading to college this fall will encounter a 10- to 15-pound weight gain that often comes from eating cafeteria food and dormitory snacks.

Better watch what you say if you're planning a night of boozy revelry at the venerable Mount Royal Tavern , which recently installed a "Cuss Bucket" for those getting a little too loud and creative with their profanity. "It's a bar, and I don't mind a 'hell' or a 'damn' — they're allowed to use them — but when people start yelling the other profanities, that's it," said Ron Carback, who has owned the bar in the 1200 block of W. Mount Royal Ave. with his partner, Chris Kozak, since 1985.

Tom Zbikowski didn't record the expected knockout, but the Ravens safety showed something he had already proved on the football field — his toughness. Zbikowski delivered several brutal punches and absorbed some as well, standing his ground for a unanimous win over a bloodied-face Caleb "True Grit" Grummet at a sold-out Boardwalk Hall Saturday night. In a bout billed as "MMA vs. NFL," the man known as "Tommy Z" in boxing improved to 3-0 in his professional career after all three judges scored in his favor (39-36, 39-36 and 38-37)
