The state Board of Morticians wants to add a set of guidelines to its regulations in an attempt to stop people from using a private beach on the Chesapeake Bay to dispose of the ashes of loved ones.The board began contemplating guidelines on how to properly dispose of cremated remains last fall, after residents of a cozy Pasadena community as picturesque as its name -- Venice on the Bay -- began complaining about visitors scattering ashes from their beach.The board's guidelines remind people that even though the state does not require that cremated remains be placed in a cemetery, "this does not mean that cremated remains can be freely scattered or otherwise disposed of upon public domain, or upon the private property of another person."

A four-bedroom, four-bathroom Craftsman-style beach retreat on the Severn River sold in April for $2.2 million. It was the second-priciest deal in the Baltimore region that month, one of 23 homes that sold for $1 million or more. The Murray Home Team of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage handled the sale. Agent Mike Murray said almost every room in the house, on Winchester Beach Drive in Annapolis, has panoramic views of the Severn River. “The views are second to none,” said Murray, who leads the team with his wife, Melissa.

For almost half a century, Beverly-Triton Beach, a pristine white sand beach south of Annapolis, was the most popular private resort on the Chesapeake Bay, bustling with cabanas and sunbathers, big bands and clutches of jingling slot machines.But for 30 years now, the last half of them as a county park, it has been nearly deserted.That a stunning 340-acre stretch of undeveloped bay front in a county with thousands of sand-starved residents has remained virtually unused for so long is a testimony to the power of exclusion.

From his blue clapboard and brick home overlooking Herring Bay in the southern Anne Arundel County community of Rose Haven, Mark Curl has views of some of Maryland's iconic sites: the Bloody Point Lighthouse and the Bay Bridge. But a small patch of land much closer to his home — a private beach that is part of the popular Herrington Harbour Marina South, surrounded by 1,000 banana palm trees in the summer — has gotten most of his attention lately. Curl, who has lived at his home for about 30 years, says a beach-replenishment project this spring resulted in the deposit of large amounts of fine silt in Herring Bay, making for a muck-filled mess in the shared waterway.

On the wave-tossed banks of the Eastern Shore, treasure washes onto the sand every day —ordinary glass thrown into the water decades ago, where it was broken and beaten by the sea for years, emerging finally as rare and beautiful "sea glass. " Some call sea glass "Tears of the Mermaids," and once you see its luminous glow against the sand, you understand why. My interest began last October, when my sister and niece proposed a sea-glass hunt at Tolchester Beach near Chestertown on the Eastern Shore.

Stacy Keibler plans to take a special supplement after she gives birth next month -- a pill made from her placenta. The Rosedale native and host of "Supermarket Superstar" is among a growing number of women who are returning to the ancient practice of consuming the placenta , the organ which nourishes the fetus during pregnancy. Most other mammals eat the placenta immediately after birth, as do many women in some Asian and African cultures.  Some believe that consuming the placenta can ward off postpartum depression, boost energy and speed healing, although few studies have been conducted.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, is sometimes upstaged by its neighbor, the uber glitzy Dubai, but that may be coming to an end as concerns about Dubai's debts grow. Abu Dhabi is expected to provide fiscal stability in the region, perhaps garnering more attention from tourists who prefer not worrying about the economic situation. And it can't hurt that Frommer's has named the city a top destination for 2010. Here are five things to do: Get lost in a mosque Visit Sheikh Zayed Mosque, one of the largest mosques in the world.
