My 26-year-old daughter has been on Effexor for more than a year for anxiety. Recently, she forgot a dose, and the next day she experienced what she described as an electrical sensation from her feet to her head. She described it as a "zing." The sensation went away when she took the required dose that evening. She is on the lowest dose of Effexor and would like to stop taking it before getting pregnant. Should she be concerned about stopping this medication? The electrical "zing" she experienced is sometimes mentioned when people describe what happens when they stop taking this or similar drugs.

I've found a singular pleasure in this 2006 baseball season. It's happened every five or six days since mid-May and though I rarely get to see it live, I feel a happy glow every time I realize it's come back around. "It" is the burgeoning career of Minnesota Twins rookie Francisco Liriano. The 22-year-old left-hander ranked among my most enthusiastic fantasy touts before this season. I said he could be bought on the cheap as a middle reliever but might turn into one of the American League's 10 best starters by season's end. As it turns out, he's perhaps the best now and we've only just passed the All-Star break.

On the same day she would have graduated from high school, apprentice sensation Rosie Napravnik rode two winners yesterday at Pimlico Race Course. "I didn't even realize they were graduating tonight," said Napravnik, who will take her GED test this summer. "I have learned so much this year." After attending her first two years of high school in New Jersey, Napravnik spent the summer of 2004 with her sister Jazz, an assistant trainer for Pimlico-based conditioner Holly Robinson. Immediately after her junior year at Hereford High, Napravnik began riding professionally and this year has won 71 races for $1.3 million.

It wouldn't be the holidays without cookies. Tollhouse, oatmeal, sugar cookies, spritzes, date bars and gingersnaps bring families together to create sweet and lasting memories. We asked readers for their favorite holiday cookie recipes, and more than 100 bakers responded. Some recipes they sent us had been handed down for generations, sometimes acquiring interesting names, such as Iowa School Girl Cookies, Aunt Fran's Graham Cracker Treats and Hedgehog Cookies. Others were fairly new, having been clipped from magazines or created by the readers, and included such modern ingredients as instant espresso coffee and crystallized ginger.

When Harry Dingle moved his printing business from Catonsville to Laurel a few years ago, the incentive wasn't more space or lower overhead. He just wanted to be closer to the Gardens Ice House in Laurel so he could go skating on lunch hour. Dingle, 60, doesn't dawdle on the rink. He's a devotee of speed skating, the sport in which men and women with windmilling arms power their way over glistening ice in an exaggerated half-crouch, like turbocharged versions of Groucho loping across the set of an old Marx Brothers movie.

Houston -- As they danced on the field and White Sox were piled one on top of another, as though this bowl of a baseball stadium were actually a giant laundry basket, there was one man at the heart of it all. When they surprised the baseball world back in the spring and wowed us all here in the fall, one man stood alone in the middle. And whenever the cameras rolled and the mics were hot, it was always the same man we saw at the center. The most valuable member of this team doesn't swing a bat, he doesn't throw a pitch and he doesn't turn double plays.

Marseille, France-- --Sunsets occur deliciously late at the Provencal seaside. A few weeks ago, after I had relaxed all day by the pool at Sofitel Palm Beach, a swank hotel with an excellent restaurant facing the Mediterranean Sea, the sky was still light when I finally sat down to dinner at 10 p.m. Hardly glancing at the menu, I ordered bouillabaisse, a dish indigenous to this brawny, briny city that combines seafood with onions, fennel, tomatoes, white...

WHENEVER people ask me why I don't have my own ESPN show like every other sportswriter, I tell them, first of all, that ESPN hasn't called. Then I tell them the real reason: I've spent the past five years on the baseball diamond. Instead of using my free time to work on my media exposure, I've used it to work on getting a team of Towson travel baseball players to throw strikes, hit the cutoff man and walk away rather than argue when an umpire blows a call. The time obligation was enough to discourage me from thinking about doing anything else outside of work.

You should see this," he says. "I'm looking out over the Aegean Sea. It's awesome." That's John Taylor, bassist for Duran Duran. He's calling from his hotel suite in Greece, where the band is scheduled to perform later that night. The other members -- lead singer Simon LeBon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, guitarist Andy Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor (none of the Taylors are related, by the way) -- are unavailable. The view from his window must be captivating. "Marvelous," he whispers. In the past nine months or so, Taylor and his band mates have had little time to sit still.
