Mutter Museum may leave you shocked and horrified or amazed and fascinated. Either way, its collections of bones, bodies, body parts, plus tumors and other terrors, are unforgettable. The nation's finest and oldest medical museum - celebrating its 150th anniversary this month - bills itself as "disturbingly informative," and that is absolutely true. Specimens lining its wood-and-glass display cases reveal the effects of epidemics and diseases on the body, as well as an amazing array of human curiosities and anomalies.

The last pope to take the name Benedict, before the one who made history this month announcing plans to retire, assumed his duties a few weeks after the outbreak of World War I. As Christmas 1914 approached, Benedict XV, who described the war as “the suicide of Europe,” pleaded for a Christmas truce. The military leaders refused, but somehow, at several points along the trenches, a surreal cease-fire broke out anyway. That short, peaceful spell inspired the 2005 film “Joyeux Noel,” which focused on the experiences of some Scottish, French and German troops on a battlefield in Belgium.

Quarterback Dennis Dixon , who spent this past season on the Ravens' practice squad, has signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, the team and his agent announced this afternoon. The much-anticipated move reunites Dixon with Eagles coach Chip Kelly , who Dixon played under at the University of Oregon. Dixon, 28, will join a quarterback competition that also includes Michael Vick and  Nick Foles . Vick agreed to a restructured three-year deal with the Eagles earlier this week, but he he has not been guaranteed the starting job. The Ravens initially tried out Dixon last spring, but opted to sign Curtis Painter over both Dixon and Kyle Boller . However, Painter was released in the Ravens' final roster cutdown before the start of the season, and the Ravens ultimately signed Dixon to their practice squad.

Ugly holiday sweaters are bad enough. But ugly holiday sweater cookies ? Isn't that taking things a bit too far? Apparently not for Bel Air High and MICA alums Brennen and Zoe Lukas, whose perhaps-too-colorful Christmas confections were spotlighted on NBC's "Today" show this morning. During a segment on gifts under $30, "style expert" Lilliana Vazquez gave the cookies a quick shout-out. "How cute are these cookies?" Vazquez gushed, noting they were available in both Christmas and Hanukkah themes.
