* Dress very warmly. This seems obvious but it will feel much colder on a windy hilltop than it does in the city or suburbs.* Visit the farm in daylight if possible. It's much easier to judge trees in the daytime than it is to rely on the light from a few scattered bulbs.* Call the farm before heading out. Most provide saws to cut the trees and rope or twine to tie it down, but some don't.* When cutting the tree, cut as close to the ground as possible, leaving a good length of trunk at the base of the tree so it will fit in the tree stand.

Two Maryland football players -  junior wide receiver Levern Jacobs and senior inside linebacker Alex Twine -  were charged Thursday with second-degree assault, according to Maryland court records. Twine was arrested and is scheduled to appear in Prince George's County District Court in Hyattsville on Oct. 3. Jacobs was issued a summons. The charges stem from a July 19 incident. Jacobs is Maryland's No. 3 wide receiver and had 47 catches for 640 yards and three touchdowns last season.

TO ME, NOTHING says Christmas like a 5-foot-tall chunk of green polyvinyl chloride decorated with taillight-red lights, a $1.98 garland from Rite Aid, and a couple of spray-cans of fake snow, the vague smell of heat-resistant thermoplastics wafting throughout the house.But my wife is one of these people who insists on having a real Christmas tree, whatever that means."What's more real than a cellulose acetate base and polycarbonate hooks for the branches?" I tell her.But she doesn't want to hear about it. You can talk to her 'til you're blue in the face, but she's firmly in the pocket of the anti-artificial tree lobby.

Maryland has lost another linebacker for Saturday's game at Wake Forest. Alex Twine suffered a labrum injury in last week's 27-26 victory over Virginia and is listed as "out" for Saturday. Also out for Maryland is freshman wide receiver DeAndre Lane (concussion). Offensive linemen Nick Klemm, safety Jeremiah Johnson, fullback Tyler Cierski, receiver Tyrek Cheeseboro and linebacker Matt Robinson - who had all been out previously - remain sidelined. Twine, a junior, is among three Maryland linebackers who won't play due Saturday to injury.

Havre de Grace. -- This cool gray May has set back spring work on a lot of Maryland farms, including ours, but in return it's also provided an unexpected bonus -- some spare time.While waiting for the weather to clear I was able to spend a day with a group of fifth-graders on an outdoor-education field trip to a well-run nature center. The various sessions were predictably enjoyable and instructive, but one was especially memorable, as it provided a striking new perspective on the meaning of time.

TRUE STORY: A city principal used to display an industrial-size spool of twine on the front counter of the school office. Throughout the day, little boys emulating hip-hop video stars would slouch past her door, wearing droopy pants that revealed the advertising logos on the waistbands of their undershorts. She noted how the fashion hobbled them, as they could not trust their slight frames to keep the pants in place. "I'm gonna string you up," the administrator would growl, steering each baggy boy to a corner for a lecture on propriety.

Kitchen tip When you buy a bunch of fresh, sturdy herbs like rosemary, thyme, oregano or sage and need only a bit, here's how to save the rest: Wrap kitchen twine around the stems, creating a loop. Hang the bunch, upside down, in a cool, dry place. Most herbs will take from four to 10 days to dry. Once they're crisp, pick leaves from stems and place in a tightly sealed jar. Label and date. Store in a cool, dark place; dried herbs will keep for about six months. marthastewart.com Know a helpful shortcut in the kitchen?

May is here and the birds are chirping and flitting about. Why not give your feathered friends a new home? This whimsical birdhouse is easy to make using a milk carton and items collected from around your house and yard.Here's how:Wash and dry an empty half-gallon paper milk carton. An adult may cut out a circle about 1 1/2 inch in diameter on one of the side panels of the carton, 3 inches above the base of the carton. For a perch for the birds, poke a small hole below the large hole and partially insert a 5-inch long, 3/16-inch dowel in the small hole.

On the day after Thanksgiv-ing we purchased a living blue spruce in a 25-gallon container for our Christmas tree. We have it outside, but would like to bring it in as soon as possible. How long will it tolerate being inside, before we plant it outside? Most trees will tolerate being inside for one to two weeks, but it is best to keep the indoor period as short as possible. This reduces the shock trees go through when they are moved from a cold environment, to a warm one, and back to a cold one. When there is a great difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the shock will likely be greater, and trees should be brought in for shorter periods of time.

It was birthday time for Bayley, a 1-year-old Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, but the birds, dogs and cats were getting all the presents Saturday at the National Aquarium. Bayley has come a long way from the helpless calf with a large head and tiny body born at the Baltimore aquarium last year. Now she's a growing and inquisitive dolphin that has joined the aquarium's popular show ahead of some of her older peers, learning new tricks and trying her best to duplicate her mother's jumps. That's in part because animal care staff keep her busy with what they call enrichment activities, organized play designed to encourage natural behaviors and stimulate development, said Sue Hunter, director of animal programs.

At Quince Orchard in Montgomery County, Alex Twine played on teams that rarely lost. At Maryland, the junior linebacker has played on teams that have won just six of 24 games. The chip on the shoulders of players such as Twine is growing. “It's a chip that won't go away until we get the respect we deserve,” Twine said during Monday's Media Day in College Park. “We just feel that we're a lot better than people are making us out to be.” While Terps football coach Randy Edsall talked Monday about his team being good enough to win the Atlantic Coast Conference's Atlantic Division and the ACC championship game in order to play in a Bowl Championship Series game, most websites and publications have the Terps picked between fourth and sixth in the seven-team division, though they have been picked to finish as high as third behind Clemson and Florida State.

It turns out that redshirt sophomore quarterback Danny O'Brien was not the only Maryland player injured in Saturday's 45-21 loss to Notre Dame at FedEx Field. O'Brien's broken bone in his nonthrowing arm will sideline him the rest of the season, but an unspecified injury to linebacker Alex Twine will keep the promising freshman out of Saturday's game at Wake Forest. Twine was the ACC's Freshman of the Week after making 12 tackles against the Fighting Irish. Maryland coach Randy Edsall said during his teleconference Thursday that the Terps will travel to Winston-Salem, N.C. with only 60 players, including walk-ons.

Alvin Cash, 60, who had a hit in 1963 with the dance tune "It's Twine Time," died in his sleep Nov. 21 at his Chicago home. The cause of death was not determined. A native of St. Louis, he started his career as a tap dancer and performed with his brother in a group, the Step Brothers. He started singing later, hitting the Chicago scene with his group, Alvin Cash and the Registers. "It's Twine Time" earned them appearances on Dick Clark's and Ed Sullivan's shows. Follow-up dance tunes included "The Funky Washing Machine," "The Ali Shuffle" and "The Philly Freeze."

I never knew they made trousers out of it. And since when are they called trousers? I own pants. Maybe one pair that could be called slacks. But trousers?I was shopping for my first serious clothes for the workplace. As a summer intern in an office setting, I needed to upgrade my wardrobe past the flannel phase.
