Kenna wasn't the only one baffled by the commercial failure of his debut, 2003's New Sacred Cow. The category-defying singer-songwriter released one of the most critically lauded pop albums of that year. Several reviews proclaimed his music - a kinetic synth-based fusion of hip-hop-friendly beats awash with nervy punk-rock textures and grand melodies recalling U2 - the future of pop. But apparently music buyers didn't get the hype. The CD only sold about 50,000 copies, and Columbia Records, Kenna's label, soon dropped him. Drained and frustrated, the alt-rock-pop artist, who was born in Ethiopia and raised in Virginia, took time off. He felt the need for spiritual rejuvenation and, to clear his head, Kenna attempted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in early 2004.

You don't quite know what to make of Kenna. He's new on the scene -- a black man born in Ethiopia and raised in Virginia whose music is hard to peg. New wave sensibilities liven the mix; there's a smidgen of hip-hop energy, a drop of techno. And pop melodies abound on his debut, New Sacred Cow. He's not fond of photographs. Inside the CD booklet, there's a tack-sized shot of the guy covering his face. But you will miss it if you're just flipping through. He doesn't even appear in the video for "Hell Bent," the CD's first single.

For a little over a century, starting with the end of the Revolutionary War, Maryland craftsmen were producing some of the finest home furnishings anywhere. Inlaid bellflower furniture, painted furniture, repousse silver, case clocks and other goods made in Baltimore, Annapolis, Frederick and elsewhere during this period are still admired for their design, quality and craftsmanship. Today, furniture from all over the world is easy and often inexpensive to come by, but there remains a demand for quality furnishings made by hand.

Kathy Angel has a hard time controlling her sweet tooth, particularly at the office. There's the morale club's monthly cake celebration. The doughnut holes. The candy dishes. "I can sort of plan for it because I know it's coming," said Angel, 42, of Farmington, Mich., who will try to curb her intake as another cake day approaches at work. Angel represents 74 percent of workers who told researchers that cake, cookies and candy are served sometimes - if not always - to celebrate special occasions at the office.
