Everybody loves a parade - or so the saying goes - and that was no more apparent than at Thursday's Old Home Week Parade in Greencastle. The only traffic that moved in downtown Greencastle on Thursday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. was the home-spun parade that entertained onlookers. Sierra Wagaman, 17, of Marion, Pa., was one of thousands who watched the 95-unit parade snake its way through town. “It gets better every Old Home Week,” she said. For the soon-to-be Greencastle-Antrim High School senior, it was hard to divert her eyes from the parade route to ask her questions.

So Saturday morning, regardless of what the calendar said, Miller arrived at the Washington County Rural Heritage Museum with her two sons to see how many plastic eggs they could find for their baskets. "They're at those ages -- 8 and 9 -- when they're very competitive," the Hagerstown woman said.

Jelly beans have progressed beyond their Easter-basket status, or is that regressed? They now come in several flavors, including vomit, earwax and booger. There are even Sport Beans - a bit of sports drink meets jelly bean - recently crafted by the Jelly Belly Co., the same company President Ronald Reagan helped popularize during his jelly-bean-loving presidency. But unlike the fruit-flavored beans Reagan loved so much, the sports-formulated jelly beans are infused with electrolytes and other supplements that are intended to provide athletes with the nutrients they need while they perform, according to the Sports Beans Web site at www.sportbeans.

2 large Idaho baking potatoes 1 tablespoon butter (see cook's note) 2 (32-ounce) bags of confectioners' sugar (might want third bag on hand in case potatoes have a more moist consistency) 1 (28-ounce) jar of smooth peanut butter (might want more, depending on how thick you want to spread the peanut butter) Cook's note: Margarine is not recommended because its consistency isn't as thick as butter. Peel the potatoes. Cut the potatoes in uniform, ice cube-sized chunks.
