There's a certain delight in discovering a new treat, maybe a cookie the taste buds haven't before enjoyed. In their pursuit of such new discoveries, Mary Kalin and Cookie McDowell have shared more than just cookie recipes. They and several friends have shared tales of their families and have created new memories to recount during their annual cookie exchange. "It's really about getting together with friends," said McDowell, 57, who lives north of Hagerstown. Kalin, McDowell and six friends, along with spouses, recently celebrated their 20th cookie exchange with a progressive dinner, one in which different portions of the meal were served at three homes.

Charles Darwin is forever linked to evolution, thanks to his groundbreaking book "The Origin of Species. " Now, his wife is making a contribution to evolution of another kind. Dusha Bateson and Weslie Janeway recently edited and revived "Mrs. Charles Darwin's Recipe Book" (Glitterati Inc., $35), providing a look inside a Victorian household as well as a study in how cooking has evolved since the 19th century. Emma Wedgwood Darwin was born in 1808 and lived 14 years past her husband, dying in 1896.

It's hard to say which was more comfortable, the bust-flattening bra of the 1920s or the waist-pinching corset of the 19th century. Mash the breasts down to the chest, or prop them up and smash them together to form a ubiquitous mono-bust? Just be glad we live in the 21st century, where the credo is "lift and separate," and that the steel frame of a corset isn't doing the lifting and the too-tight fabric of a bust-flattener isn't doing the shaping. Today, Valentine's Day, gift-wrapped boxes of lingerie abound.

To the editor: As Mr. Buhrer stated in his letter of Dec. 4, the "thorough lack of understanding of how science works" is sad indeed. Science is the study of observable phenomena that are repeatable and subject to hypothesis, testing and independent verification. Anything outside this process of observation and repeatability cannot be investigated scientifically. And this is exactly the problem with Darwinian evolution. To be fair, we must first define some things.
