Even with all the warning, I just can't see to get up to speed with the holidays. Way back around Halloween when the first hints of Christmas decorations were sprouting like too-early crocuses poking through a February snow, I looked around and figured there was plenty of time. My kids still had uneaten candy from trick or treating. Thanksgiving, which I swear someone moved so it fell the week after Halloween this year, was fast upon me and there was a lot of cooking and cleaning to do.

Cindy McGrew of Herminie, Pa., wrote asking for help in finding a "German recipe for plum strudel. I've looked in all the books I can find and haven't seen anything that even looks similar.

Ullman of Baltimore responded with a recipe that tester Laura Reiley chose. It came from McCall's magazine, August 1975. "Instead of the dough I used crescent-roll dough, making it flaky," Ullman said.

With the 100-degree temperatures in June, it’s hard to remember the snows of recent winters. Stumps of our ‘foster’ hollies, ready to be removed when new trees are planted, remind me every time I drag the hose up our driveway.   Across the street at the Roland Park Woman’s Club, snow-damaged arborvitaes also had to come down this year. That exposed an old chain-link fence, one of many that sprang up in the neighborhood during the 1960’s. When I mentioned the newly exposed eyesore to Karen Offutt, who chairs the club’s grounds committee, she immediately took action.

There is the stunning arena, the Comcast Center, where kids — young men — get to play in a pro setting.

LOUISVILLE, Ky.— Although it came as no real surprise when word leaked out Friday morning that Uncle Mo, the juvenile champion, would be scratched from the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby, it was yet another reminder of just how fragile thoroughbred horses truly are. Rumors had been swirling around the track all week that trainer Todd Pletcher would never send him to the gate. Uncle Mo was undefeated as a 2-year-old, but a third place finish three weeks ago at the Wood Memorial sparked concerns that something wasn't right.

Walter Fullwood strode up to the window of the Snowball Stand in Woodstock on a recent, steamy afternoon and handed over a bag of four "empties" before placing his carryout order. One of the stand's original customers, he has made weekly summer pilgrimages from his Ellicott City home of 42 years to the nearby rural spot since it opened in 1975. He has also made a habit of returning the cardboard containers as a courtesy. Fullwood requested four of the 101 varieties of the tasty treat Tuesday, including chocolate with a center of marshmallow for his wife, Marilyn, and plain vanilla for Winston, their 2-year-old Australian shepherd.
