Everyone loves the smell of piping-hot pizza. But no one loves the smell of a burning pizza box. Turns out, this is a difficult scent to eradicate from the home, and I've tried — even frying tilapia for dinner one evening. But the scent of flaming cardboard somehow persists. Almost all of my friends use the oven, set very low, to keep their pizzas warm in the box while they wait for their guests to arrive, for the evening news to be over or for the salad to be made. No one I know has encountered a problem with this.

Calling the Ray Rice video that broke Monday on TMZ "one of the biggest stories" it has ever done in terms of traffic, a website executive said today there are more revelations to come. "The stuff that's out there has kind of opened the door to a whole bunch of other story points such as what's going on with the NFL," Evan Rosenblum, executive producer for TMZ and TMZ Sports, said in a telephone interview. "Did the NFL really not see the video? What kind of effort did they make to see the video?

Lately, it seems you don't have to be anywhere near a garden to stop and smell the roses. Smell is the latest way that businesses are attempting to woo customers, whether it be the scented candles at Hampden shop In Watermelon Sugar, the vanilla and cloves wafting through the air at Williams-Sonoma, or the pungent smell of colognes at trendy clothing chains. Technology to spread the scents have become more elaborate and includes a device that pumps fragrances through ventilation systems.

Something smells funny in Clarksville. A few residents have complained of a nauseating, pungent odor from the area of Maryland 108 and Sheppard Lane to Howard County's health department, said spokeswoman Lisa DeHernandez. She said the department's community hygiene program conducted a search of the area Wednesday and found the source to be coming from fertilizer on a large farm. They received the same calls last year, she said. They expect rain to reduce the stench. In the meantime, DeHernandez said, the farmer will be asked to wet the perimeter areas of the property to help reduce the odor but, because agricultural properties are mostly exempt from nuisance codes, there's no requirement or enforcement measures that the department can take.

A powerful stench was in the air Saturday at the Inner Harbor as 12-year-olds Alison Chase and Marissa Westerbeke hunched over the water's edge, studying tiny crabs floating to the surface. The girls were in town from Connecticut for a relaxing annual vacation with Alison's family, but the pervasive smell of dead fish and rotting plant matter — caused by a massive algae bloom — had them totally grossed out. "It's, like, sad and disgusting," said Marissa. "It's gross.

It happens every September. The weeks of summer vacation are fast becoming a blur and a memory.I'm crossing the Kent Narrows Bridge and take a deep breath. I smell the marshes between Grasonville and Stevensville. It's one of those heady Chesapeake fragrances that will never be bottled.The car moves toward Baltimore. All recollection of the Atlantic coast's clear skies and pounding surf evaporates.There's a damnable hot and hazy cloud inevitably hanging over Baltimore during the ninth month of the year.

A Boston-bound AirTran flight that left Baltimore-Washington International Airport yesterday morning turned around and landed without incident after passengers detected "a funny smell" in the cabin, an airline spokesman said. Maintenance workers later determined that a routine pre-flight check had caused oil to drip off an engine of the Boeing 717 and into the air-conditioning unit, said the spokesman, Tad Hutcheson. Flight 496 landed at BWI at 12:10 p.m., nearly an hour after takeoff.

CHILDHOOD ISN'T what it used to be. Looking at this world from my 4-year-old son's perspective made me realize that our times have become disturbingly artificial.When I was a child, it seems, the sounds and odors -- my most powerful memories -- were all different. Every time I smell the fragrance of lilacs, I am transported to the glorious white blossoms outside the bedroom window of my childhood.The house burned down long ago, but the aroma will be forever imprinted in the cluttered attic of my memory.

My 4-year-old Labrador retriever licks my pillow until it's soaked through. She doesn't do this to anything else in the house. Why might she be doing it and what can I do to discourage it? This could be due to your hair products. Many dogs like the taste of lotion we put on our skin and will lick the lotion off us or eat the bottle of lotion. It can be the same for our hair products. There are so many added scents and flavors to our hair products that they appeal to dogs. Dogs have a higher sense of smell than we do, but not more taste buds - if they like the smell of something, they will eat it. Because your dog is only going after the pillowcase you lay your head on, this is most likely the case.

Editor: I lift the lid off the writhing pot on my stove and inhale deeply. The aroma of Old Bay seasoning and the briny crab reaches my nose, a smell so familiar and so comforting. Their bright red bodies smeared wholly with that special seasoning wipes away the fact that a mere hour earlier the pots contents were in a cooler on the floor, scratching and pinching, and blue. Placing the lid carefully back down, I turn my attention to the sweet corn, its smell dispersing through the kitchen alarming those present it is ready to be eaten, the broth milky and corn silk floating along in a one note soup.

Having read your report, the story of the kidnapping and imprisonment of three women in Cleveland makes no sense whatever ("Women's 'nightmare is over,'" May 8). If true, something is drastically wrong with America. I am incredulous the women were held against their will for 10 years, incredulous that neighbors blame the police when the captives were right next door, incredulous one of the prisoners could have given birth and cared for a child for six years without anyone asking questions.

Just when we were getting our heads around the idea that many (if not most) of us will lose brain function as we age, there is news that another one of those physical gifts we take for granted is likely to leave us. Our sense of smell. It is a bit of a blow, if you will excuse the pun. And it joins a growing list: balance, flexibility, muscle mass, strength, vision, hearing and hair, to name just a handful of the things the young take for granted. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that our sense of smell degrades as we age, reducing both pleasure and safety.

Sure, her official position is hazy -- and she might not even be getting paid, but Carrie Mathison is back at the CIA. And so are bunch of video screens fixed on Nicholas Brody. The recursive storylines that defined Homeland's first season were back in a big way in Episode 4 of Season 2, as Carrie returns to work on a top-secret surveillance team monitoring Brody. As the show's perspective switches between the two characters, we again see Carrie's life being defined by the Brody she sees and hears on screen.

Out and About At this beautiful time of year you don't need any special reason to visit the historic district. On the weekends the historic sites - the Thomas Isaac Log Cabin, the Firehouse Museum, the Heritage Orientation Center and the Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park - are all open to visitors. Lots of shops have samples of their wares out on the sidewalk, and a few restaurants offer outdoor seating. Grab an ice cream cone and sit on a picnic bench next to the Tiber.

The Beaux Arts building is a knockout, with its orange brick, slate roof and copper turrets. You'd never guess from the looks of the place that it's a sewage pumping station. But the nose knows. Nobody made a stink about smells wafting from the Eastern Avenue pumping station back in 1912, when it started doing its thing on Baltimore's grimy waterfront. But these days, the station sits amid pricey "Harbor East" housing and tourist attractions. In fact, the pumping station is a tourist attraction - home to the Baltimore Public Works Museum.

It was Christmas in the New York subways last week, musicians heading off to play Christmas gigs, and in the Times Square station, a wild-haired old man out of a George Price cartoon pounded out "Winter Wonderland" on an electric organ, a rhythm attachment going whompeta-whompeta-whompeta, and two crazed, battery-powered Santas dancing the boogaloo nearby a young trumpeter giving "O Holy Night" a good working over. Then the doors closed and we racketed uptown as an old codger came into the subway car and launched into "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire" as he limped up the aisle, jingling his Styrofoam cup. I am pretty much hardened to Christmas music, except at the end of the Christmas Eve service when the lights dim and the glories stream from heaven afar and the heavenly hosts sing Alleluia and then, from long habit, tears well up in my eyes and I weep for the dead who enjoyed Christmas so much and for humanity in general, and then we go sashaying out into the cold, starry night and walk home.

Things I'll be watching for during Maryland's season-opening football game against William & Mary at Byrd Stadium on Sept. 1. *Stefon Diggs' debut. Will he follow the Torrey Smith model and make his mark initially more as a kick returner than a receiver? Remember that Smith caught only 24 passes in his first season but averaged 25.9 yards on kickoffs, where his talents were immediately evident. *The new FieldTurf. Does it have that new car smell? *The uniforms. Does Maryland come out right away with those funky “Maryland Pride” uniforms, or does it keep them in reserve?
