My prosperous friend Megabuk sat in the restaurant booth grinning. Not only grinning, but while reading his newspaper and sipping morning coffee, he broke into a loud laugh.When I expressed surprise at Megabuk's jovial mood, he put aside the paper and said: "Why shouldn't I be happy? The waitress is bringing us a hearty breakfast, I'm in excellent health, my business is in good shape, and it's a fine morning."But didn't you hear President Clinton's speech? You earn well over $200,000 a year, so you are going to be clobbered.

California Chrome has a bit of Hollywood in him. Just a few steps into his first afternoon at Pimlico Race Course on Monday, the Kentucky Derby champion stopped and posed regally before a pack of photographers click, click, clicking. The handsome chestnut seemed to relish his turn as the Brad Pitt of Preakness week. “I think he loves it,” said assistant trainer Alan Sherman. “He'll sit out there and pose all day. He loves the cameras and the attention.” California Chrome is certainly used to the glare after winning the Kentucky Derby as a heavy favorite and horse of the people.

What's the correct way to rehydrate sun-dried tomatoes? Previously, I just soaked them in water and used them in my recipe, but they tasted bitter -- not at all like the sweet, juicy, plump tomatoes I've tasted in restaurant dishes. Thanks for your help. Unless you buy your sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, they will need to be rehydrated with liquid. A rule of thumb is to cover sun-dried tomatoes with warm water and soak for two hours at room temperature. You can get a feel for how long they should soak by feeling how flexible they are -- the stiffer they are, the longer they should soak.

While is it not our custom to oppose business investment in Baltimore, particularly the prized kind that creates jobs without requiring public subsidies, it would be difficult not to sympathize with the residents of Federal Hill and the problems they've encountered with the high volume of drunks in the vicinity of Cross Street Market. The proposal to create a 300-seat beer garden on that same block has pushed opponents to the breaking point. Enforcing drinking laws is one thing, but surely even the most pro-business advocate must admit there can be a critical mass of bar patrons beyond which Federal Hill and its environs can't function.

A waterspout zipped across Baltimore harbor Monday afternoon, tossing pieces of a warehouse roof into the air, and at least one other tornado was reported in the area as storms brought heavy downpours and flooding. In Fells Point, cars sat in standing water and sandbags were placed at doors to prevent water from entering businesses. In the Inner Harbor, 1.74 inches of rain had fallen by 5 p.m. - all but a half-inch of it in the span of an hour before 4 p.m. Steve Fogleman, a Glen Burnie attorney and chairman of the Baltimore liquor board, was driving north on Interstate 95 just south of the Fort McHenry tunnel a little before 4 p.m. when he noticed a rotating cloud and something whipping through the air near Silo Point.

Wearing a black fedora and a dark checkered blazer and with his daughter at his side, Ray Lewis attended the premiere screening of the DVD that chronicles the Ravens' Super Bowl winning season last night at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric. His first offseason appearance in Baltimore as a retired player, Lewis admitted that it felt a little weird to not be preparing for another year of football. “Honestly, there's no pressure because every year is always a new year, every offseason is always a new offseason.

He clutched the Lombardi Trophy again about 10 hours after he held it for the first time. He had watched his quarterback Joe Flacco receive a new car as the Super Bowl XLVII Most Valuable Player and he had done one more interview as a newly minted world champion. But before Ravens coach John Harbaugh left New Orleans on Monday afternoon, he stopped in front of a group of reporters, grabbed his arm and then aggressively pulled at his cheeks. "Is this real?" Harbaugh asked.

When Manny Machado was announced to the sellout crowd Sunday night before the first home playoff game at Camden Yards in 15 years, the Orioles' rookie third baseman jogged to the first base foul line. And then he subtly tipped his cap to the Yankees, just a quick acknowledgement to the other team. If you blinked, you missed it. “Yeah, I went out there and waved over there to [Joe] Girardi and Derek [Jeter] and their teammates just out of respect,” Machado said. “They are also in the playoffs, and I just wanted to tip them off. We're in the postseason and you've got to tip your hat over there.” No big deal.

Lately, my idea of a good time has been to sit in the back yard and watch my new sprinkler oscillate. I enjoy watering the yard. It makes me feel like a farmer, a fireman, and a savior of the plant world. It is a job with immediate rewards. You turn on the water and the situation improves. Sagging plants perk up, birds sing, and the temperature drops.The irony is that while the theory of watering is simple -- giving plants moisture -- the delivery methods can be quite complicated. I bought my new sprinkler after comparing and contrasting the features of several different types of fan oscillating sprinklers.

Sitting in the visitors' dugout, Davey Johnson looked out over the park that used to be home, took a deep breath and grinned. It had been 15 years, but Johnson was finally managing again in Camden Yards. "Feels good to be back," said Johnson, now the manager of the Washington Nationals, before Friday night's series opener against the Orioles. "Little different view from this angle," he added. Different view, same landmarks. There, in the dugout across the field, that's where Johnson watched his final game wearing an Orioles cap. Over the right field wall, that's where Tony Fernandez launched his series-clinching home run in the top of the 11th inning, breaking a scoreless tie for the Cleveland Indians in Game 6 of the 1997 American League Championship Series.
