Heading to a crab house for a feast is fun, but nothing beats an afternoon of crabs in the backyard. Here are some tips for planning a feast of your own: Dress the part: Crab feasts are a dirty business; expect to get messy. Jen Harris, an upstate New York native who moved to Baltimore in 2010, learned this the hard way at her first crab feast. "Do not wear a dry clean-only blouse with white jeans," she warns. "Wear clothing you don't care about. " Set the table: Long, outdoor tables are ideal for crab feasting, but any table covered in newspaper or brown paper will do. Set mallets, knives and rolls of paper towels within easy grabbing distance of pickers (experienced pickers will appreciate bowls of water for hand-rinsing, too)

Bottom of the Bay, the venerable (since 1972) crab joint-cum-seafood restaurant on Route 1 in Laurel, is not easy to describe. It's a one-story, two-room structure that defines what Maine lobster purveyors up "nawth" call "eating in the ruff. " That is, shoes and shirts are required (we think), but that's about it. Boasting about 60 seats, according to manager John Knapp, the main dining room and the bar are roughly equal in size. If you're seeking intimacy, forget it. Individual tables are set up on two sides, against the walls.

Newspaper. A roll of paper towels. Wooden mallets and plastic pitchers for cold drinks. The elements of a traditional Maryland crab feast could not be simpler to gather. Or more uninspired. Crab feasts are family affairs in Maryland. The adults linger at the table, talking and picking, while the kids play in the yard. Dusk arrives and empty crab shells and corn husks are rolled up in the soiled newspaper and dropped neatly in the garbage. "You are meant to get your hands dirty," said Andrew Zill, design director for Feats Inc., an event-planning company in Baltimore.

MADISON, Wis. - I do my part for the planet. I recycle, and I've been known to bring a canvas bag to the grocery store. Yet I'm starting to find all these messages on greening hard to take. The advice is often impractical. For instance, I should walk, bike or take the bus to work. Sounds great in a perfect world, but my job requires trips to a city 70 miles away, a compromise for my two-career family. I'd drive a hybrid car, but they're still a bit pricey for the likes of young professionals such as me. I'd ride light rail, if they'd build it, and if cities offered reliable public transportation, I'd be there.

What, besides the food, comprises a good "restaurant experience?" Service and decor are important, of course, but very near the top of my list is the state of the restaurant's bathroom. First there are sins of omission - management's failure to keep the bathroom clean. But what drive me crazy are sins of commission - the bad decisions that restaurants make that ensure an aggravating restroom experience. One problem is not stocking enough toilet paper. If a restaurant hasn't invested in a toilet-paper delivery system that includes reserve rolls, and it has not charged its staff with constantly monitoring the supply, then it owes it to the customers to simply store extra rolls in the bathroom itself.

Mention coupons to a regular grocery shopper and you're likely to get intense reaction. Some love coupons and will boast about the hundreds of dollars they save with them. Others sneer, saying their time is too valuable to be wasted on the meager savings. The key is to use coupons wisely and disregard the ones that aren't worth the effort. In round numbers, an American family of four annually spends $4,800 on grocery-store food, $800 on housekeeping supplies, $400 on personal-care products and $130 on nonprescription drugs, according to government figures on consumer expenditures.

NEW ORLEANS - When their homes began to sink in Katrina's floodwaters, elders in the quarter here known as Uptown gathered their neighbors to seek refuge at the Samuel J. Green Charter School, the local toughs included. But when the thugs started vandalizing the place - wielding guns and breaking into vending machines - Vance Anthion put them out, literally tossing them into the fetid waters. Anthion stayed awake at night after that, protecting the inhabitants of the school from looters or worse.
