Purging the drawers, cubbies, shelves, under-sink storage, and medicine chest in the bathroom is a dreadful job, one that must be done at regular intervals. That's every 17 years, in my opinion. I prefer to do it myself, rather than to let Doug try. He can't tell the difference between the leg-shavers that slice my shins to shreds and the ones that don't, which can lead to surprises in the shower that resemble the murder scene from "Psycho. " Our bathroom contains the usual complement of shampoos, conditioners, body wash, toothpaste, mouthwash, various unguents, salves and gels; and a collection of tweezers, cuticle scissors, hair dryers, toenail clippers, nose- and ear-hair trimmers, and make-up applicators — and that's just the stuff on the countertop.

With the street buckling in front of her, Evelyn Cannon called 911 as cars teetered and then began to sink, their wheels becoming less and less visible. But Cannon felt unable to convey the gravity of the situation, she said. About 45 seconds into the call, when the operator asked her if anything was damaged, Cannon became exasperated. "The street is damaged," she said into her phone, in one of nearly a dozen 911 recordings released Thursday by the Baltimore Fire Department.

I made a poundcake with blueberries in it. But the blueberries fell to the bottom. How do I get the blueberries to do what they are supposed to do? Tossing ingredients with flour is one way to keep them from sinking in batter, but that works best with dry things, such as dried fruit or nuts. For your blueberry poundcake, try frozen blueberries. Frozen berries are less likely to sink. Fold them into the batter very gently, or put the batter in the pan in layers, sprinkling in some blueberries before you add more batter.

Though the world's most famous shipwrecks happened at sea, boats are four times more likely to sink at the dock than when they are under way, according to BoatU.S., a marine insurance company. "You expect a boat [at a dock] to be able to float in almost any condition, but some of these smaller boats can't," said Chuck Fort, who wrote a study published this summer on why motorboats sink. Almost half of the boats that sank while tied to a dock went down after the cockpit filled with rain or snow, according to the study.

Q: We want to remodel a spare room adjacent to our bedroom so it can serve as a spacious bath and dressing area. Can you suggest something other than the usual double-sink vanity?A counter top that long strikes me as an invitation to clutter. We'd also appreciate advice on colors, materials and window treatments.A: Clutter won't be a problem on a long counter top if your remodeling plan makes provision for plenty of storage space. Difficult-to-store items such as hair spray, tall bottles and hair dryers can all be accommodated in a properly designed cabinet below a double-sink counter.

Though several ticking clocks continually mark the minutes and chime the hours at the Antique Clock and Watch Shop in Ellicott City, this crowded, parts-strewn shop seems like a place that time has forgotten. Owner Charles Sink has no computers in the space he shares with his English Lab, Princess. He doesn't have a cash register and accepts only cash for his work. But he offers customers old-fashioned attention to detail and a skill set that is as anachronistic as rotary telephones and rabbit ears on televisions - the ability to repair old-fashioned clocks and watches, the ones that rely on balance wheels and pendulums, not batteries.

Q: I'm trying to draw up a plan for my living room so that it can incorporate a wet bar with storage space. The problem is that an exposed bar would not look appropriate in this traditionally styled space. Can you suggest a solution?A: I see a number of alternatives, provided that plumbing can reach the area where you want to put the sink.I would start by looking for a decorative piece of furniture in which a sink could be fitted. Depending on the size, shape and layout of your living room, the best option might be either a tall piece such as an armoire, or a shorter cabinet or server.

For decades, counter tops in bathrooms were, at most, 30 inches in height, while kitchen counters were 6 inches taller. Does that make sense? Of course not, but those dimensions nevertheless remain the American standard.Slowly, finally, the situation is changing. Many newly built homes feature 36-inch counter-tops in master bedroom-bath combinations. Other traditional and equally illogical placements are beginning to be rethought as well.Jim Krengel, design director for Maytag's Kitchen Idea Center, offers some interesting tips for how to save time and improve efficiency in the kitchen.

SARASOTA, Fla. - When the Orioles signed right-handed relief pitcher Ryan Webb in December, executive vice president Dan Duquette quickly compared him to Jim Johnson, who had been traded earlier that month. And while the comparison wasn't necessarily fair since the departed Johnson had compiled back-to-back 50-save seasons before he was dealt to the Oakland Athletics, both possess heavy sinkers that can lead to early contact and quick outs, which can be valuable while pitching in critical late-inning situations in the American League East.

This letter is in response to the letter from Edward Davenport who wrote about how his personal knowledge regarding decreased productivity of workers in America proves that legalizing marijuana will cause the destruction of the United States ("Legalizing marijuana a foolish idea," Dec. 17). While I sympathize with his belief that he knows everything and that his point of view must be true otherwise why would he believe it, the fact is that in studies done by the Economic Policy Institute, American workers are more productive than ever before, so his anecdotal evidence is just flat out incorrect.

The Johns Hopkins football team snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. The No. 8 Blue Jays could not protect a one-point lead in the final minute of regulation on Saturday, as No. 14 Wesley marched 82 yards on five plays and in 31 seconds to score a touchdown and escape from Homewood Field in Baltimore with a 29-24 victory in a first-round game of the NCAA Division III tournament. Sophomore quarterback Joe Callahan connected with junior wide receiver Steve Koudossou on a 33-yard deep post with 12.8 seconds left in the fourth quarter to rally from a 24-23 deficit that left a partisan crowd of 1,460 stunned and sent the Wolverines (9-2)

COLLEGE PARK - Clearly, it was gut-check time for Maryland on Saturday. The Terps ' self-esteem had been badly bruised in last weekend's blowout loss at Florida State, and starting quarterback C.J. Brown had been ruled out against Virginia because of a concussion he suffered against the Seminoles. So there were only a couple of ways this thing could go. The Terps could shake off that 63-point flogging and regain their footing against a Cavaliers team that had lost three of its previous four games and had given up 48 points to Ball State.
