Alyson Nachman's boys couldn't wait for the man in the green and white grocery truck to pull up to their Owings Mills house - and neither could she. Among the first in the Baltimore area to order her groceries over the Internet from a company called Peapod by Giant, Nachman stood by as the driver brought red peppers, milk and other everyday supplies to her kitchen counter. Instead of tearing through the aisles of a local Giant, sons Jason, 4, and Alex, 2, quietly ogled the truck and the neat green totes full of groceries.

Ruth Nachman, who as owner of a Roland Park gift shop made sure her customers never gave the same Christmas present two years in a row, died Thursday of Alzheimer's disease at Arden Court in Pikesville. The former Village of Cross Keys resident was 82. For more than 40 years, she owned Gundy's, a gift shop whose shelves she stocked with wares she collected on her extensive buying trips. She once described her gifts' range as "from weddings through babies." Born Ruth Kleeman in Nuremburg, Germany, where she was educated, she fled Germany as Adolf Hitler began to persecute Jews.

TV talk-show legend Phil Donahue said he knows his ratings have to turn around soon if his comeback on MSNBC is going to last. "If we don't make noise in six months, it's going to be hard for me to tell my family that I was treated unfairly," Donahue said. Donahue's highly publicized 8 p.m. show is off to a sluggish start in its first six weeks, drawing about half the viewers watching CNN's new entry in the time period, Connie Chung Tonight. Last week, his show averaged 365,000 viewers to Chung's 686,000, according to Nielsen Media Research.
