A set contains four 2-cup containers with multi-colored lids and 2 ice packs, and costs $9-$10 at Target and by mail ( or 800-421-1223). Frozen finesse Jeni's sweet corn with blackberry ice cream is as odd sounding as it is fabulous, and just one of the flavors in Ohio pastry chef Jeni Britton's arsenal of ice creams and ...

Native plants draw interest from gardeners

Bicycle 101: I'm seeing more and more people riding bikes now that the weather is getting cooler, but "ouch," they are killing their knees and thighs. Sitting on your seat, you should barely be able to touch the ground with your tiptoes. When you are riding, your seat should be high enough to allow you to peddle without strain on your knees and thighs. When your foot is on the down peddle, your leg should be almost fully extended. Some of the riders I am seeing are almost hitting their chins with their knees because their seats are too ...

FCC plan hasty, costly

This has been a difficult year for all of us, as we have watched the stock markets sputter, housing values plummet, and banks crash. Too many Americans are struggling to make their mortgage payment, and wonder how they will ever be able to afford to retire.
