Here's a sampling of fun facts, tidbits and some suggestions for serving winter squash (generalizations of recipes I have at home or have made up)

Protected from elements, visitors to The Mall in Columbia can enjoy a winter wonderland - without the cold. The mall's Santastic display uses MagicSnow, a nontoxic water-based product that looks like the real thing. It floats from the chimneys of the buildings in the mall display, is blasted at children dropping letters into Santa's mailbox and evaporates when it hits the ground. Adam Williams, a former electrician, came up with the idea of the fake flakes for a magic show.

As I was chopping away at the muck on the sidewalk the other morning, it became clear to me why composers don't write songs about slush. It is miserable, annoying stuff. Slush is a byproduct of snowfall, as are ice, frozen gutters, dead car batteries and repetitious images of TV reporters shivering in the elements. Enough already! I confess that I once held the poetic view of snowfall. I gushed about how it brightened the dreary winter landscape, freshened the air, brought out our inner child.

Baltimore's vintage Inner Harbor Carousel could be replaced by a pirate-themed theater, a miniature golf course, a traveling Ripley's Believe or Not exhibit or a Ferris wheel. It also might give way to a new carousel, with figures shaped like anything from orioles and ravens to exotic fish from the National Aquarium. Those were a few of the ideas presented Tuesday to city officials attempting to decide whether to replace the 1906 Herschell-Spillman hand-carved carousel that has been a fixture on the Inner Harbor shoreline since 1981 but has seen falling ridership.

The staff members at the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington agree that it is their favorite moment: A holiday visitor is gazing at the miniature U.S. Capitol or at the miniature Jefferson Memorial in the conservatory's courtyard, or at any one of the fanciful structures that line the tracks in the nearby holiday train garden. "And suddenly they realize they are looking at an acorn or a corn husk and the look on their faces is amazing," said Laura Anthony, coordinator of the garden's visitors center.
