Christmas is nine days away, and if you're looking for presents, well, you still have time. When it comes to becoming educated on conservatism and Maryland, books are a very effective way to show somebody that you care enough about them and our state and country to arm them with the necessary knowledge and motivation to get involved in the community. So here are some books that I would recommend as great stocking stuffers:   The Conscience of a Conservative by Barry Goldwater : The gold standard of conservative philosophy and thought, Senator Goldwater's book stands up more than 50 years after it was published.

Last year, my son Isaac fixated on one of his stocking stuffers -- a head lamp. He would not take that thing off. He wore it to explore the (finished) basement, turned lights off in other rooms just so he could play in there in the dark and even had to be dissuaded from going to the bathroom by a single bulb. I thought it was a fluke, brought on by the coincidence of his dad having his own, Marine Corps-issued, head lamp at hand when we opened presents with him connected to us from Afghanistan via Skype.

You don't have to be as old as Christmas to remember a time when giving a video as a gift was truly extravagant. For the holiday gift-buying season of 1991, it's gotten to the point where they can be stocking stuffers.Just about any movie you can think of -- other than the latest releases -- is available for purchase on video for under $30; many can be had for less than $15. And, for those with deeper pockets, boxed sets bringing together popular movie series or stars are also on the market.

A long with trees and wreaths, stockings are among the most treasured symbols of the holiday season. In some families, Christmas stockings are heirlooms passed from generation to generation, with collections starting with a baby's first stocking. Four in five Americans polled by Sprint, the telephone company, say adults enjoy them, too. In fact, holiday stockings have evolved into vibrant decorative accents that can be color-keyed to furnishings. Stockings can be supersized to contain a treasure of stuffers or petite enough to serve as tree ornaments or hold flatware at the dinner table.

The clock was ticking yesterday morning for Linett Raymond, who needed one last Christmas gift for her father.At a drug store, the 22-year-old studied an aisle filled with playing cards, figurines, wrapping paper and extension cords before settling on scented candles (lemon, apple and lime)."This is last-minute, last-minute shopping," Raymond said over Christmas tunes drifting from ceiling speakers. "I probably won't even wrap it, just put a bow around it."Last-minute shopping took on a new meaning yesterday morning as Baltimore mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers flooded area convenience stores seeking stocking stuffers, toys, batteries and film.

December marks the peak of navel-orange season. The orange's connection to Christmas stretches back more than a century when times were hard and an orange in the bottom of a stocking was a welcome gift. Today, of course, oranges are readily available in grocery produce sections. According to Sunkist, the average American consumes 12 1/2 pounds of fresh oranges per year. Doing a dip: Hey, it's easy Although the Christmas dinner isn't yet on the table, it's not too soon to think about what you're going to serve for New Year's Eve. French's mustard has this easy appetizer idea: Defrost a 10-ounce package of frozen chopped spinach, squeeze it dry, and place it in a food processor or blender along with 1 cup of plain nonfat yogurt, 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese, 1/4 cup French's Napa Valley style Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil leaves, a chopped clove of garlic and 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper.

Tony Siragusa could be the Ravens' secret weapon ... with a muzzle. The irrepressible and nearly irreplaceable defensive tackle dominates the spotlight off the field and sacrifices any chance of it on the field. Statistics cannot prove his worth, and words cannot justly describe his character. Across the NFL, he's known more for his nickname, "Goose," than for his punishing labor as the run-stopping foundation of the league's premier defense. The reward so far has been countless knee operations during his 11-year career.

It used to be, you could take your grocery cart from the store all the way out to your car to deposit your bags in the trunk. It was understood that you wouldn't steal the cart. Now many stores are penning in the carts so you have to schlep those bags, sans cart, across the parking lot. They don't trust us.It's the same with newspaper vending machines: In the good old days you putyour quarters in, pulled open the door, and there was a crisp pile of newspapers. You took the one off the top - why would you want more than one?

In well-organized households, by this time of the season much of the holiday shopping has been completed. But if your household is anything like mine, there still are smaller presents to be bought as stocking stuffers for spouses or children.You know, things that perhaps aren't among the list of necessary items, but gadgets and thing-a-ma-bobs that might otherwise be passed over by the family fishermen, boaters or hunters.A lot of outdoor gear is hard to buy for someone else without knowing exact preferences for rods and reels, shotguns and rifles or electronic gear for boats.
