Thanks to everyone who called and e-mailed in their comments and ideas about reusable shopping bags. It's encouraging to hear about more and more people toting cloth bags on their shopping trips. A few readers led me to organic cotton net produce bags (pictured) from www.reusablebags.com ($3.95 each; volume discounts). The bags are a bit heavier than plastic bags available in produce sections, so you might want to empty the produce onto the belt before weighing. Or try the lightweight...

The stronger-than-expected performance, however, still sent shares in one of Britain's biggest regional pubs/brewing groups up nearly 10 per cent. Greene King, with more than 320 pubs north of the Border through its ownership of Belhaven, said the Scottish subsidiary's managed estate had driven up...

Add poor summer weather, credit crunch belt-tightening and job insecurity to the flat market...

"Spices distort wine flavors, turning white wines hot and red wines bitter," writes Garrett Oliver in his book "The Brewmaster's Table." But beer works hand in glove with those cuisines. "Curry's main ingredients -- garlic, chilies, lemon grass, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon,...

  • A spider.
