Cold weather is rough on the adult body. It's hard to relax when you're chilled to the bone and your sinuses are cemented. So take a cue from the ancient Greeks. Go on - get steamed. Thousands of years ago, Romans and Turks understood the restorative powers of moist heat. They relaxed and unwound in communal steam baths. The 21st-century take on Turkish baths is a private enclosure in the master bath with seating for one or two. It's the latest example of a traditionally communal activity being retooled for at-home convenience.

If an English country squire or a wealthy industrialist of the Gilded Age were to have an in-town home, 106 E. Chase St. would fit the bill to a tee. Built in the 1880s, the detached, three-story Romanesque-style home fits well among the other elegant residences in Mount Vernon. "This house is one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable," said listing agent Julie Canard of Long & Foster Real Estate. "There is no way you could duplicate this, for millions of dollars. " The home's original owner, George Jenkins, was enamored of the skill and craftsmanship of builders who emigrated from Europe.

Emily and Brendan Sullivan have finally personalized their home. And they didn't do it with monogrammed towels. Instead, they have made much larger alterations, knocking down walls, terracing their back yard and putting in a 7,000-gallon pond. Three years ago, when she was 33 and pregnant with her second child, the Sullivans decided to move from their townhouse in Timonium. They searched for a larger place, but just couldn't find one that felt right - until they walked into a $412,000 home in Jacksonville and looked up at three stories of white, Chippendale-style latticework framing the staircase.

Step on. Look at the number. Step off. If only using a scale could be so simple. But as anyone trying to lose -- or even maintain -- weight knows, the relationship with the bathroom scale is tenuous at best. We're best friends when it seems to overlook that extra piece of fruitcake from the night before, but woe to the scale that ignores our rigorous workouts and saintlike holiday party willpower. Out with the garbage it goes. With New Year's resolutions newly made, it's time to make peace with the scale.

Let me get this straight: There were Ravens players complaining about the offseason working conditions at The Castle? And moaning about being kept too long on the field and in the meeting rooms? And practicing too hard? And this is why the team was reprimanded by the NFL for offseason training violations? You gotta be kidding me. Let's go over a typical OTA (organized team activity), like the one being held this week, and see what horrible torture the Ravens endure on a daily basis.

I SAT ON MY EXERCISE mat, puddled in my own sweat and humiliation. I had survived another Total Fitness with Tina, but my ego had not. It was as sore as any muscle. "There has got to be another way," I muttered, as I looked around the exercise room at my classmates, all of whom, I surmised, were former ballerinas, half my age and training for triathlons. I have been part of every fitness craze, from racquetball to yoga, but my longevity is just the reason that I may be ready for the latest exercise phase -- Curves for Women.

When did the holidays become an exercise in anxiety, tension mounting with each fa, la and la? Shopping stress. Baking stress. Light-stringing stress. Relatives. And that "Are you ready for Christmas?" thing. Hardly helping. But the year is winding down - shouldn't we take a cue? To that end, it seemed a good, scented rubdown couldn't hurt. I took on the not particularly arduous task of searching area spas for a moment or two of Zen, to see if a massage, scrub or perhaps a paraffin pedicure could straighten the star atop the tree and help the Hanukkah oil burn an extra night.

We pick up right where we left off: at the dinner table, post-F-bomb. And it is tense, y'all. Brandi and Kim leave the table, and Lisa stays behind, defending Brandi as the other Housewives gasp at her lack of couth. Blah. When she and Kyle get back to the table, Brandi apologizes for swearing, but refuses to say she's sorry for telling Adrienne to shut up. Then she drops the news about her book deal, which pisses off Taylor, as predicted.   When Taylor released her tell-all, a short six months after her husband died, Brandi was the first one to criticize her. Now, Brandi's writing a book about her divorce, and Taylor calls bull.

I have wanted a steam room in my house for a long time. Are there certain things you must do to ensure a home steam room will work well? Can you tell me exactly how to build a steam room so that I don't have any water or water-vapor issues? Will I need a special steam-room door, or will an ordinary shower door suffice? Your questions sure brought back a flood of memories from my childhood. When I was a kid, my friends and I would go swimming and play basketball at a traditional indoor health facility called the Friars Club.
