The subject peaks at the beach when we're all lying around on the sand: The womenfolk discuss their thighs and thigh sizes.In some genetic twist of fate, the women on both sides of our family have always been "thick-thighed."So with the recent news that a rub-on cream will reduce thighs, we all went ballistic. What? A teaspoon a day keeps the fat away? Get real.I understand phone lines buzzed across the country, and at my spa the cream was the hottest topic, replacing the new fat-free chocolate brownies.

Micro-miniskirts dominated the spring shows in Europe and New York -- bringing up the problem of the right hosiery to wear with them. Heavy tights are fine for winter woolens but not for lightweight fabrics like chiffon and silk. So designers offered two choices: bare legs or thigh-high stockings.The thigh-highs turned up in shows by designers as varied as Gianni Versace, Byron Lars, Ralph Lauren and Nicole Miller in opaque, sheer, fishnet and lace versions.A particularly fetching style, which has a border of lace at the top, would be a sexy accessory for a velvet or satin minidress this winter.

New York -- Such cheek! American designers showing their spring collections in the Bryant Park tents here are cutting skirts short enough to expose the derriere.That's to make the point that long is old and retailers and consumers had better think about investing in new proportions.The look is saucy and models are putting more skip than slink into their walk to show their flip sides.Richard Tyler, who showed his first collection for the house of Anne Klein, cut skirts shorter than fingertip-length jackets -- more naughty schoolgirl than professional woman.

The Ravens' prospects of sweeping the Pittsburgh Steelers got a little brighter with the return of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to practice on Friday. The two-time Pro Bowl selection had sat out the past two days with what the team described as a thigh injury. Ngata, who has missed four starts in his six-year career, leads the team in recovered fumbles with three and has made 28 tackles and three sacks.

Contradicting an earlier post, the Ravens reported that defensive tackle Haloti Ngata did indeed participate in Thursday's practice. The four-time Pro Bowler, who has been bothered by an injured knee, was limited for the second straight day. Fullback Vonta Leach was the only player to sit out Thursday's session. The three-time Pro Bowl has been hampered by a sprained right ankle suffered in the first quarter of last Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Aside from Leach, the same players who participated on a limited basis Wednesday were limited again Thursday.

Coach John Harbaugh's decision to rest many of his starters before and during Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals might have been a heady move based on the participation numbers at Wednesday's practice. Every player was present and accounted for in practice. That includes the six starters who were deactivated prior to Sunday's contest. Inside linebacker Ray Lewis (torn right triceps), outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (torn right biceps) and wide receiver Anquan Boldin (bruised left shoulder)

Ravens coach John Harbaugh acknowledged that injured linebacker Jameel McClain's roster spot could eventually go to Ray Lewis , who could be activated this week from injured reserve with a designation to return. Lewis, who is trying to return from a torn right triceps, was working today, marking the third consecutive week that he's practicing. Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle) and tight end Ed Dickson (knee) were also both practicing on a limited basis. Ellerbe and Dickson have missed three straight games.   Wide receiver Torrey Smith (concussion)

Terrell Suggs said Wednesday that he would be a game-time decision for the Ravens for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. The outside linebacker took a step in the right direction Thursday, returning to the practice field just four days after he tore his right biceps. Early in practice, Suggs strutted onto the field with defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and defensive end Arthur Jones. He then pretended to hide from the media behind his big-bodied teammates. His quick return from a torn muscle, which he suffered in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, might have been more surprising had he not done it already this season.

Coach John Harbaugh began his news conference Monday by providing updates on the four players and a few more of their injured teammates. On starting right guard Marshal Yanda's bruised ribs and thighs, Harbaugh said, “We'll just have to see how he does on that. They're good bruises. We'll just see where that goes.” On starting cornerback Cary Williams and inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe - both of whom suffered concussions - Harbaugh said, “Both are looking pretty decent today.
