You might not even want to try to calculate how many sandwiches you'll make over the course of your child's time in school (hmm, five days a week for at least nine months per year over 12 years not including preschool - that's more than 2,000 sandwiches!), but even more startling is all the waste that can go along with them. Reusable sandwich and snack bags can greatly cut down on that waste, and they add some spunk to lunches, too. Take, for example, snackTAXI bags. They're made from cotton and nylon and are phthalate- and BPA-free.

Think of The Dog Wash as a laundromat, but for dogs instead of clothes. Customers bring in something that's dirty and pay to use the equipment on site to do the cleaning. But they do the work themselves. At first blush, a self-service dog wash might seem an unlikely business. Why would somebody pay to clean their own dog, when they can do it in their bathtub or sink for free? Owner Susan Young agreed that "some people were a little skeptical" when she opened her shop in Ellicott City.

The other day, I decided to take in a movie. First I shampooed, conditioned, amplified, hydrated and styled my hair, using the complete line of Matrix hair care products. Then I hopped in my new Toyota Matrix and headed to the theater to see the latest Matrix movie. I got home just in time to turn on the set and catch the new TV series, Threat Matrix. OK, I'm lying. I don't use Matrix hair-care products or drive a Matrix. I have not seen the movie, The Matrix, nor either of its sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.

A dispute over international food hygiene rules could result in the loss of $150 million in chicken exports a year for U.S. poultry companies, industry officials said yesterday. At issue are European Union rules that forbid the use of chlorinated water to kill germs during the poultry-cleaning process - a practice employed by companies in the United States. Those rules have shut U.S. chicken and turkey products out of the European Union market for four years, resulting in the loss of about $50 million in annual sales, according to William Roenigk, senior vice president of the National Chicken Council, a trade association based in Washington, Now, the imminent entries into the EU of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovenia threaten U.S. sales to those nations because they would have to abide by the same European Union import standards.

Capers are tiny, unopened buds of a flowering bush that grows in Mediterranean regions. They give a piquant little bite to sauces or salads and are often used as garnish for fish or meat. To release their flavor in sauces, coarsely chop capers before using. Bottled capers packed in vinegar will keep for months in the refrigerator. Drain off the liquid before using. If you prefer a less salty taste, rinse and drain capers before using. Salt-packed capers stored in glass or ceramic containers will keep for several months at room temperature.
