The Orioles sent a powerful message - literally and figuratively - to the Yankeesin their thrilling 10-6 win at Camden Yardslast night. Mixed in with the usual smells of sweat, sunflower seeds and bubble-gum in the Orioles' dugout was the overpowering scent of testosterone. A six-home-run barrage - the most homers by the O's in a game in over five years  - left Yankees pitchers muttering to themselves. And three blasts in the eighth inning by Adam Jones, sizzling Mark Reynolds and Chris Davis - the last on a swing  so relaxed I thought he was falling asleep - sent the sellout crowd into a delirious celebration.

Watching squirrels gather nuts and seeds for the winter can give a person ideas. Most people love the crunch and taste of these foods, but may shy away from them because they're high in fat. That's a mistake. There are good kinds of fat (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) and bad kinds of fat (saturated). Nuts and seeds are practically dripping with the good kinds of fat that can actually lower the risk of coronary heart disease. Most nuts and seeds are also high in antioxidants, like vitamin E, that can reduce the risk of certain cancers.

Rain over the past two weeks seems to have washed away a potential problem with the trout population in the Lower Savage River, Robert Bachman said Thursday.The drought in Garrett County had created problems with the water levels in the Savage River Reservoir and, you may recall, some fishermen in Western Maryland had worried that reduced flows in the lower river would endanger its trout.Bachman said that water levels in the reservoir are still lower than normal, but that water lost to controversial white-water trials in the river had been replaced by the rains.

First, the rookie sportswriter found his seat - No. 118 in the press box. Second, the rookie found the clubhouse, where he'd need to go after the game. Third, he found where they scroll out the free hot dogs. Now the rookie in the necktie - chomping on his nails like they were sunflower seeds - needed a great game to complete his first Opening Day. Oh, to be 24 and parked behind home plate and watching Oriole Jerry Hairston double in the bottom of the 11th inning with the score 1-1. To be Greg Caldwell of Dundalk, free-lancing for the East County Times weekly newspaper, armed with his Baseball Scorebook from WalMart and a Tuesday deadline.

As I headed out to market a couple of weeks ago, birdseed was on my list, and as I walked out the door the serious man on television was saying, "To attract the widest variety of birds, use sunflower seed."So I bought a few pounds of sunflower seeds from the bulk bin and filled the bird feeder. I then sat back and watched what turned out to be a wonderful squirrel circus.I thought perhaps I had misunderstood the man on TV until I received a mailing from the Friends of Quiet Waters Park promoting the group's birdseed sale.

If your bird feeder has been vacant this past month or so, don't worry -- new tenants are on the way.During this time of year migratory birds are winging south, and many will choose Carroll for their winter homes.Juncos have already appeared at home feeders, as well as migratory blue jays from up north. They will soon be followed by chickadees, titmice, finches and other winter species. In January or February, lucky observers may find colorful evening grosbeaks adding excitement to their winter feeder.

The late summer sun parches, its heat bringing to fruition the seeds for the next generation. Plants spend September gathering the last nutrients from the sun and soil while hardening their seed shells to protect against the winter's frost. The sunflower is the most beautiful testimonial to this life cycle. Head bowing in reverence to its namesake, it is a gorgeous flower surrounding a seed-filled center.Sunflower seeds are an important foodstuff for all the population of the plains, from the tiniest game birds to prairie dogs, deer, moose and antelope.

I ALWAYS feel better about Baltimore when a new John Waters movie comes out. It's reassuring, in a screwy way. It's the same feeling I have whenever I visit my eccentric Aunt Diddy: I hate the awful dish she loves to make for us -- roasted gristly short ribs rolled in sunflower seeds -- but I am always appalled and happy when she serves it. The latest Waters film might be rated NC-17 -- meaning no one younger than 17 will be allowed into a theater to...

Some mornings, it wouldn't be worth getting out of bed if I couldn't watch the birds at my backyard feeders while sipping the first cup of coffee of the day. The news in the paper may depress, the weather on the radio may disappoint, the well-coifed chatterboxes on TV may disgust, but the birds never do. They sing and flutter. Get along and squabble. Big ones feed their youngsters. Sometimes the boys feed the girls. And every so often a big fuzzy squirrel makes like Rocket J. Squirrel and flings himself from my roof onto a feeder to steal some sunflower seeds.

Some people may think that American menus have gotten altogether too detailed. The diner often knows by the dessert course which farm grew the soup's vegetables and whether the beef was corn- or grain-fed. But if you really want to get into the nitty-gritty, take a close peek at the plate and try to spot the seeds.They're popping up everywhere, and on some pretty elegant tables. Pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds, once mainly the staple of vegetarians, have gone upscale. Notice the black sesame seeds on the bread sticks served with tuna tartare; the pumpkin seed-dusted scallops; and the white sesame seeds in the guinea hen pot au feu."
