A restaurant gift card is a great idea. But restaurants make it so hard. I want to know what I'm giving. I want ordering to be easy, flexible and transparent, with the option of ordering online or in person. I want to know exactly what the card or certificate looks like to the recipieents whether I give it to them in person or have it mailed to them. And I want to know the rules of engagement. So, take a minute to look at your restaurant's gift-card program. Think about if from your customers' point of view, and consider adding in a FAQ page like Ruth's Chris has. They even thought to consider that customers might want to know the answer this question: Q: What should I be looking for in the mail?

My household recently received two mailers attacking Del. Jon Cardin from a group that calls itself "Marylanders for Integrity in Government PAC" and credited "Anne Adoryan, Treasurer. " The return address was a post office box in Hampden. When I checked the Maryland State Board of Elections' on-line database, there was no listing for this organization. When I Googled Anne Adoryan's name, I found that she was a law student who only recently moved here from Ohio. After Delegate Cardin's campaign sued the rump organization for failing to disclose its donors, a report was posted on the state election board's website showing that "Marylanders for Integrity in Government" received one $50,000 contribution from a union in Washington, D.C. and another $50,000 contribution from a union in New York City.

Few things in life are so consistently able to rouse hope in me as the arrival of the mailman at my door.It doesn't matter that the reality never lives up to the expectation; that more bills arrive in the mail than checks, more bedding catalogs than love letters, more solicitations than felicitations.The plain truth is: Regardless of how bad my mail may be today, I will wake tomorrow with hope perched like a feather in my soul. Mail-wise, that is.Yes, I admit it: I am a mail chauvinist. And I am not alone.

The computer industry has a knack for creating big solutions to big problems. But what about the little problems, like printing addresses on envelopes?It seems that most offices I visit, no matter how computerized, have at least one typewriter around for typing on envelopes. Traditional PC printers and software make the job too cumbersome, but there are some solutions.Most laser printers, for example, have a tray where you can feed in envelopes and other odd-sized documents. However, your word processing program may not have any idea where to put the information.

Happy New Year! Is your inbox any cleaner yet? Theoretically, it should be. The federal Can-Spam Act officially took effect when the clock ticked off the last second of 2003, which means those creeps who have been sending us pitches for mail-order Viagra, body-part enhancers, diet supplements, cut-rate mortgages, intimate photos of bored Russian housewives and, of course, anti-spam programs, are supposed to clean up their act. What are the odds that...

Q: Enclosed is a photograph of an antique bed that I inherited. Originally a rope bed, it's been modernized to hold a modern spring and mattress. I would appreciate any information you can provide.A: This is a spool-turned bed, the precursor to the "Jenny Lind" bed. The turnings resemble a series of spools -- therefore, the name. Spool furniture usually was made of maple, birch or other native hardwoods.A filled ticking mattress rested on ropes that were laced around pegs on the head and foot rails and both side rails, creating a webbing.

Q : I have two framed pictures of a little girl with a bow and arrow. She is awake in one picture and sleeping in the other. Each measures 13 by 19 inches, and each is signed "M. B. Parkinson." What can you tell me about my pictures?A: These photos are known as "Cupid Awake" and "Cupid Asleep." Over 50 million prints of the original photos were produced in the early 1900s by the Ohio Art Co. M. B. Parkinson was the original photographer and Josephine Anderson was the model. Photos signed by Parkinson are more valuable than the prints.

If I could say a few words to the many charities that are always writing me and requesting a donation and enclosing a small "gift" of return address labels as a token of their appreciation, I'd begin by saying, with all due respect: Will you stop with the return address labels?! Please. I'm begging you. In fact, I'll make you a deal. I'll send you money if you promise not to send me any more return address labels. Look, if you want to send a small "gift," send me a coupon for a 7-Eleven coffee or a sleeve of golf balls.

James A. Buck gladly accepted the package at his Parkville office from the deliveryman wearing a UPS uniform. But minutes later, police swooped in to arrest Buck, 54, and seized the parcel, which had contained three pounds of marijuana he sent to himself from California, according to court records. Buck pleaded guilty to a possession charge, though he said in a recent interview that the drugs were for medicinal use. Buck's case and search warrants unsealed last week offer a glimpse into a long-standing — and growing — smuggling practice: mailing drugs from California to Maryland.
