For a vegetable that can look like such a brute, eggplant is surprisingly fragile. It bruises easily and those flaws quickly turn bad (cut open a dented eggplant and you'll see the flesh is brown and corky in the affected area). It also loses moisture quickly, leading to dry and pithy flesh. When choosing eggplant, pick ones that are heavy for their size. They'll be the freshest. Also feel the skin. If it is a round eggplant, it should be taut and almost bulging. In Asian markets, the long, thin eggplants often are slightly softer.

Last week's frigid temperatures combined with insufficient insulation on domestic and commercial sprinkler systems caused monumental headaches for property owners and firefighters who had to deal with hundreds of burst pipes, said Robert Thomas, deputy chief for the state fire marshal's office.Such problems were especially troublesome in Harford County, where frozen pipes burst in relatively new condominium projects, Mr. Thomas said Tuesday, the day before the mercury dipped to minus 4 and wind chill bottomed out at minus 30.The Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company handled 20 calls for burst sprinkler system pipes between Sunday and Wednesday, said James Lyons III, assistant chief.

The title of this episode best sums up the problem that each and every housewife has been struggling with for years: "Say what you mean, but don't say it mean. " The first major event in the episode is when Ramona and Luanne decide to meet up at the park for their "confrontation. " I guess this was the last resort since they have tried and failed at having a productive talk in a restaurant and a party setting. Anyway, their attempt to resolve their issues started out as well as it could … but it went downhill from there.

Tracy Marcotte scanned a hand-held metal detector across various spots on the base of the Washington Monument as if she were searching for gold. But it was iron she was after. Specifically, she was searching for iron cramps that hold together stones that make up the monument. Marcotte was part of a team from Pennsylvania-based CVM engineers at the monument Saturday assessing the historic structure in preparation for a restoration to begin next spring. The $3 million restoration is the first project in a plan by the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy to make improvements to Mount Vernon Square, which is made up of the monument and four public squares surrounding it. The conservancy was formed to raise money to improve and manage the site.

NEW YORK - Water-damaged ceilings. Exposed wiring. Chipped paint. Corroded woodwork. City Hall, one of New York's most ornate, beautiful and historic buildings, is clearly getting a little shabby around the edges. Two water stains and corroded woodwork directly over the entrances mar the 189-year-old building's beauty the moment a visitor walks inside. An old rug in the visitor's balcony above the City Council chamber, where everyone from tourists to schoolchildren watches government at work, is so badly ripped and buckled that an elderly woman tripped six months ago and broke her ankle, City Hall police acknowledged.

Most tenants do not realize they need renters insurance until it's too late.Some examples of cases when insurance would have come in handy:* The upstairs tenant caused a water overflow, which damaged furniture and clothing. While the negligent tenant may be sued, it's easier for an insurance company to handle the situation.* A rainstorm caused the county storm sewer system to back up, flooding basement apartments. Not only is there damage to the tenants' property, but they have to go to a motel while their apartment is repaired.

I have been reading with profound amazement, the opinions of the Republican voters in The Sun. For a group of humans that, as a party, nearly destroyed the United States to be upset with the current administration's handling of this crisis is remarkable. The Republicans under George W. Bush set fire to the barn and ran like arsonists. In came the new fire chief, Barack Obama, and he put out the fire. The barn had a lot of smoke and water damage, but it was fixable. So Chief Obama set out to rebuild.

A two-alarm fire destroyed two apartments and damaged three others in Columbia on Wednesday morning, displacing two adults and two children, according to the Howard County Department of Fire & Rescue Services. Firefighters responded to the 7600 block of Woodpark Drive about 10 a.m. after a maintenance worker discovered a fire in a second-floor apartment after responding to reports of water leaking into an apartment below, said Battalion Chief Eric Proctor, a department spokesman. Finding heavy smoke coming from the apartment, officials requested a second alarm and began battling the blaze, which had been controlled by an activated sprinkler system, Proctor said.

An order by a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge has cleared the way for a lender to foreclose on the Jefferson Building, where work on a planned Staybridge Suites Hotel stalled during the financial downturn. RL BB Financial LLC had been prevented from foreclosing on the former office building after the developer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in August 2010. An order Tuesday by Judge Nancy V. Alquist lifted a stay preventing a sale. The developer, 101 Charles Street LLC, completed about half the renovations, the order says.
