One of our co-workers posed the following question about spuds: Should I keep the skins on potatoes before I cook them? I've heard that the skin has a lot of nutritional value. [cont. from lifestyle ] If you want to eat potatoes with the skins intact, make sure to scrub them well, says Cindy Held of Hagerstown, a nutritionist licensed in Maryland and a registered dietitian. Mashed potatoes and potato salad can be made with unpeeled potatoes, though the texture may be more coarse, she says.

Esthetician Carol Blessing decided to name her skin care business “Green Bamboo” because bamboo is like a person’s skin: it’s prolific, it regenerates and it’s flexible, pliable and strong.  In addition, her sister Patricia suggested the name because bamboo grows in the back yard of Carol’s home.  Carol’s sister Barbara does the art work for Carol’s business. “Family is important to me,” Carol said.  “My brother helped move me from my previous location and he also built the top for my work table,” she said.

Chili connoisseur Dave DeWitt gives the following tips for using fresh chilies: n Remove the tough outer skin of certain large fresh chilies, including New Mexico green (Anaheim) and poblano chilies, by applying heat to the chili so that the skin blisters and pulls away from the pepper's meat. DeWitt recommends using a stove-top grill, but the broiler or stove burner also will work. After the chilies are well-blistered, place them in a large bowl and cover with a damp towel, or in a plastic bag, for at least half an hour.

The catalyst for change came during Christopher Drummond's modeling days. Makeup was making his skin look chalky and ashy and he was sick of it. So much so, created his own makeup line in order to spare women the same frustration. Drummond, a New York-based makeup artist and aesthetician, was at South Mountain Day Spa in Boonsboro earlier this month marketing his debut line of cosmetics, Christopher Drummond Beauty. He recently chatted with The Herald-Mail, offering tips for readers who want to look put together, but don't have a lot of time for lengthy primping.

katec@herald-mail.com It was a dark and stormy night. Really. But despite the downpour, lightning and thunder, 60 women ventured out in the rain to the Women's Club in Hagerstown last Tuesday evening for a gourmet cooking demonstration. Shellie Ralston presented an upbeat program on hors d'oeuvres. "How's everybody this evening?" she practically sang as she greeted her audience. She told them she planned to use a few basic ingredients to create a lot of different options.

For 15 years, Tori Anderson's lilting voice rang through the region, as Tori Anderson & The Possum Holler Band became a staple on the Quad-State bluegrass scene. Country music fans also know her as the cheerful and witty daytime personality on WAYZ radio in Greencastle, Pa. What her fans might not know is what a struggle it can be for her to so much as rise from bed and make the morning commute from her Hancock home to the station. It becomes a test of wills: Tori on one side, scleroderma on the other.

It was a Facebook post that made me wonder whether I had offensive feet. The status update came from Jill, a high school friend who had always set the standard for fashion. Though we grew up in a rural area, she seemed to have an innate urban sensibility. Those of us who cared about personal aesthetics followed her lead. So her early spring status update a couple years ago gave me pause. It said this: "REMINDER: If you're breaking out the open toes and flip-flops this weekend for the first time - P L E A S E remember your pedi first!

Brittani Eichelberger Hagerstown With her nut-brown skin and oil-black hair, Brittani Love Eichelberger looks nothing like the adoptive parents who saved her from the streets of Calcutta, India, as an infant. Her husband more readily passes for her mother's child than she does, and her 3-year-old son, Slate, once asked why her skin is different. But Eichelberger, 22, of Hagerstown, said she never realized others thought she was different until hijacked planes struck at the heart of the country's fiscal and military centers.

RG3 wishes he had been the first to put a Roman numeral on the back of his uniform. Not Robert Griffin III. The Washington Redskins' other RG3 - Rex Grossman III. “It would have been cool to put it on my jersey as a rookie,” Grossman said. “I never thought about it.” Of course, NFL rules didn't permit suffixes on jerseys when Grossman entered the league in 2003. And, as he points out, he didn't have anything close to the marketing cachet of Griffin, who is essentially the reason the rule was changed.

No one is surprised that Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder hates the New York Giants, or that Mike Shanahan hates the debilitating salary cap penalty imposed on his team by the NFL. And, by now, no one should be surprised that the Redskins are playoff contenders with Robert Griffin III, who not only has his first Monday night win but also managed to reference “Gumby” during the postgame news conference. There was all sorts of passion on display before, during and after the Redskins' 17-16 win over the Giants.

Captain Chaos fought to hold back the tears. Chris Cooley, the longest-tenured player on the Washington Redskins and easily the team's most colorful character, was saying goodbye. “I appreciate everything,” Cooley said with a sniffle, his voice starting to waver. “I'm sorry. I'm a baby. I appreciate everything you guys have done for me. I guess, finally, just to say thank you to our fans. It's been great. Thank you.” The Redskins released their two-time Pro Bowl tight end Tuesday, a few hours after creating some special teams chaos of their own by cutting kicker Graham Gano and replacing him with Billy Cundiff.

Taken 171 selections apart in the NFL draft, Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris are starting to look like a promising backfield combo for the Washington Redskins, one that might still be in place on opening day. Everyone expected Griffin to be there as the No. 2 overall pick. Morris? He was sixth-round selection who was a good bet for the practice squad at the start of preseason. Not anymore. Stash the running back from Florida Atlantic on the practice squad, and another team is sure to swoop and take him away.

Evan Royster is riding a two-game 100-yard streak. He put up 113 in the Washington Redskins' season finale a year ago. He ran for an impressive 132 the week before that.  Yet, there was a night a couple of weeks ago when he was very much a rookie. During the annual rookie show at training camp - when the new guys are required to do a song, dance, skit or some other sort of antics in front of the team - Royster had to stand up and perform. Why? Well, it seems he got skipped last year, when he really was a rookie.

Jarvis Jenkins was having an impressive summer in 2011. Then the second-round draft pick from Clemson tore his right ACL in Washington's third preseason game. His promising rookie season was over before it officially began. Nearly a year later, Jenkins is back on the field and eager for the Redskins' (No. 25 in the AP Pro32) preseason opener at Buffalo on Thursday.  The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Jenkins recovered from surgery in time to participate in all of Washington's spring workouts, but he won't be all the way back until he gets back in a game.

Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall had quite a season in 2010. He returned a fumble for a touchdown to beat Dallas in the opener, tied an NFL record with four interceptions at Chicago, and concluded the campaign by winning Most Valuable Player honors in the Pro Bowl. Not bad. Last season? Different story. His three interceptions were fewer than he had in the 2010 game vs. Chicago alone. He didn't reach the end zone at all. And Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant victimized Hall with deep grabs on third-and-long for the decisive plays that dealt the Redskins two late defeats.

Robert Griffin III remains unsigned as the Washington Redskins open the second day of their five-day rookie camp. The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Baylor was the second pick in this year's draft. The team's third-round selection, offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus, was also absent again Tuesday. The two aren't considered holdouts because training camp doesn't officially begin until July 26. Neither can be on the field this week with their fellow newcomers until they have signed their contracts.
