To eat the crab mustard, or not to eat the crab mustard, that was the question.Recently I struggled with this uncertainty. I pondered which parts of the crab I wanted to eat, and which parts I didn't.I didn't think about it too long. A half-dozen soft crabs, soon to be known as supper, were sitting on the kitchen counter. It was my job to clean them, to prepare them for cooking by snipping off unwanted parts.I removed the underside of the crab called its apron. I opened it up and removed the gills or "devil's fingers."

The early candidate for rap album of the year begins with a mother warning her son to stop following in the footsteps of his incarcerated father. The colorfully delivered advice was given to Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, the 24-year-old rapper better known as YG who performs Wednesday at Baltimore Soundstage. Although YG did not adhere to the counsel (he spent six months in jail for residential burglary before he signed to Def Jam in 2009), the Compton, Calif., MC proved he was on his own path with the release of “My Krazy Life,” an acclaimed first album that debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in March.

Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has put the kibosh on the condiments. Receiver Chad Ochocinco tweeted this week that he was going to send mustard to the Pittsburgh Steelers before their game Sunday at Heinz Field, a way of whipping up interest in the AFC North showdown. On Wednesday, the receiver backed down. No mustard will be headed up the Ohio River. "Unfortunately, I wasn't able to send anything this week, thanks to Marvin Lewis," Ochocinco said.

Q. I was interested in your column about the person who used yellow mustard for indigestion. I want to provide some positive feedback: I tried the mustard remedy for indigestion over the past couple of days and am amazed and delighted that it works. A. We thank the reader who suggested a teaspoon of yellow mustard for heartburn. Apparently the yellow coloring, turmeric, has long been used for digestive disorders. You are not the only one who remarked on this home remedy: "I was fascinated to read that someone else takes yellow mustard for heartburn.

We tried a treatment from your column for nighttime leg cramps. My husband used to get them frequently and would have to walk them off while in pain. He read that taking mustard would alleviate them, so he tried it. Now when he gets leg cramps at night, he takes his mustard and they go away quickly. He keeps a few individual packets of mustard in the bedroom. He thought it was just an "old wives' tale," but now he's a believer. We are delighted to learn that yellow mustard has helped relieve your husband's leg cramps.

Such simple stuff as sewage sludge and hot water may solve what has for years been an intractable billion-dollar problem for the Army: Congress' order to destroy tons of obsolete chemical weapons stored at eight military installations, including Harford County's Aberdeen Proving Ground.Scientists at APG recently announced success in neutralizing sample quantities of toxic mustard agent (better known, erroneously, as mustard gas) by cooking it with near-boiling water and then letting bacteria from sewage sludge consume the residue, rendering the solution harmless.

Aberdeen Proving Ground, tester of tanks and guns, has always been known as a place that produced a lot of noise, but it's nothing compared to the output at another federal property some 60 miles to the south: The U.S. Congress.Some members of Maryland's congressional delegation have been tripping over themselves in a rush to prove to people on the upper Eastern Shore and Harford County that they care about the danger posed by the pending incineration of mustard gas stored at the Harford-based proving ground.

I foolishly picked up a plastic honey bear that was in a pot of boiling water, and the honey squirted out all over the palm of my hand. Immediately, I ran it under cold water, and then I ran to get your book because I knew there was something I could put on burns that was natural: mustard. I had mustard in the fridge, and I poured it all over the palm of my hand. It still burned like the devil, but I left it on while I read more. I put more mustard on, wrapped gauze bandage around it and left it on for a while until the pain subsided.

Whether you want to hear a good cover band in the crowded downstairs bar or chill in the comfortable upstairs lounge, the Waterfront Hotel has long been a place to have a night on the town. The food was better than average, but nothing to write home about. In February, new management — and a new executive chef — revamped the Waterfront's menu, along with the interior of the downstairs bar. So far, the move is paying off: The food borders on phenomenal, and the bare-bones look fits the space.

Question: Last year a wild flower appeared in my yard with little white flowers and was about 2 feet tall. Well, this year it’s coming up all over the place! What is it and do I need to be worried? Answer: Yes, stop this plant right now. Garlic mustard is invasive and takes over our parks and woods. A biennial, during its first year it grows under the radar, producing only a small cluster of scalloped leaves. The second year it shoots up multiple flower stalks 1-2 feet tall.

When you eat steamed crabs are you a dipper, a swiper or a sauce-maker? A dipper removes the crab meat from the shell then drops it in a bowl of liquid, usually apple-cider vinegar or melted butter. A swiper rubs the crab meat quickly over the bits of seasoning clinging to the shell. A sauce-maker combines ingredients, usually mustard, mayonnaise and ketchup, then drags the crab meat through this creation. There is also another option: None of the above. That is, just eating the crab meat as soon as it pops out of the shell.

Some time ago, I heard an unusual home remedy on your radio show: using Elmer's glue to prevent blistering on a burned hand. I burned myself last night and initially iced my hand. Since I've never had much luck with icing burns, I decided to try the glue method, which consists of spreading glue over the burned area and letting it harden. I repeated this covering a couple of times to form something like a second skin over the burn. Eight hours later, as I write, the skin is a little tender, but there are no blisters.

A low-level leak of mustard agent has been detected in the same storage building at Aberdeen Proving Ground that reported similar discharges in June, the Army said yesterday. The Army, which operates the Harford County proving ground, said an alarm sounded at 12:45 p.m. indicating a low-level presence of mustard agent vapor inside the sealed storage structure that houses steel containers of the deadly chemical. No vapor was detected outside the building and at no time was there any danger to facility workers, the community or the environment, the Army said in a prepared statement.

TO GET READY for the Fourth of July weekend, I whipped up a couple batches of homemade ice cream. One used vanilla beans and another used mustard. That's right mustard, Dijon, the pale yellow stuff that the French love. I like it too, but was uncertain about the notion of making ice cream with it. Now that I have done it, I am no longer uncertain. Mustard goes on my hot dog, not in my dessert. Whoops, my bad. Mustard ice cream is not dessert, it is a savory sauce, something you should serve in the middle of a bowl of cold vegetable soup, gazpacho for example.

I covered the story when Ben Roethlisberger was injured in a motorcycle crash. His football career and perhaps his long-term health seemed in serious jeopardy. And so, outside Mercy Hospital, on a street overlooking the Monongahela, a small gathering did what comes naturally to Steelers fans. They tailgated, cooking hot dogs on a grill. A few fans calmly held vigil into the night. I remember looking at the lighter fluid and the bottle of French's mustard and thinking this was the most surreal thing I'd ever experienced.
