I have never met a combination salt shaker and pepper grinder that I liked.By itself, a salt shaker is a practical kitchen helper. The same can be said for a pepper mill. But when the two get together, it's like Abbott joining up with Costello, Beavis with Butt-head. The result is trouble.The pepper mill stops grinding and when, in anger, you turn the device over to examine the bottom of the grinder, the salt pours out the top. It is one of life's minor, but persistent, frustrations. You would think that a society that has come up with the microwave oven, the frost-free refrigerator and the cupcake with the creamy surprise inside could come up with a dependable combination salt shaker and pepper mill.

Regi's is a place I like to recommend when someone ask me for an all-purpose, no-frills restaurants, especially when there is the challenge of accommodating difficult friends or relatives — "He only eats meat and potatoes, and she gets nervous within a yard of a salt shaker. " Constructed out of two adjoining Federal Hill townhouses, Regi's opened in 1978 as part of the original Federal Hill dining boom, and it's managed to outlast not only all of that original class — well-remembered places like Sisson's and Bandaloops — but many of the succeeding restaurants, too. Regi's was on my list of Baltimore's 50 Best Restaurants.

As usual on trade day at the U.S. Powerboat Show in Annapolis last week, the bulk of the crowd sauntered along the floating docks toward the stars of the show, the megabuck motor yachts, trawlers and express cruisers.But tucked away in land exhibits toward the west end of the show were a pair of fishing boats excellently suited to two of the rising passions among Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic coast fishermen -- rockfish on the fly and yellowfin tuna at the offshore canyons.Action-Craft, which has been building flats boats in Cape Coral, Fla., since 1980, was a newcomer to the Annapolis show this year, having hooked up with Fred Quimby's Marine Service in Easton a few months ago.The Salt Shaker 300, built by Salt Shaker Custom Yachts in Punta Gorda, Fla., appears to offer a fast, easy ride to the canyons at a resonable price for a custom offshore boat.

MEDIA, Pa. -- If there was one thing the Depression taught Emily May Edwards, it was how to save.The Media resident was 31 when the stock market crashed. She had been saving for 60 years when she died in December. Not money -- the Depression had shown her how unreliable that could be -- but things, reassuring by their very presence and quantity.Take a moment and try to imagine 60 years' worth of things. The broken toaster, the wobbly chair, the too-small clothes, the worn shoes, the scratchy records, the odd salt shaker -- all the things you've tossed over the years.
