On Gardening: The brassicas are taking center stage along with kale, mustard, and collards too

Beyond useless trinkets: 3-D printing extends to home decor

Like replicators on "Star Trek" - machines that materialize tomato soup and "Tea, Earl Gray, hot" for peckish starship crew members - 3-D printing has a distinctly sci-fi feel.

Ex-etiquette: A picture is worth a thousand words

Q: My ex-husband's new girlfriend has told our daughters that she is going to have a portrait taken of her with the girls as a Christmas present for their dad. They have only been seeing each other for three months! I felt myself fuming as my daughter announced that she was going shopping this week for matching outfits for the picture. I did not say anything to my daughter (who seemed rather excited) but I feel it's way too soon for things like this. We've co-parented well over the years. What's good ex-etiquette?
