Q: Our sun porch has really tall windows, almost floor-to-ceiling. We love the light during the day, but it's like living in a fishbowl at night. I don't know how to cover the windows to have it sunny by day and private at night. Can you help?
A: Any number of different window treatments would give you the dual control you're looking for on your sun porch. Your choice really depends on your decorating style.
If, for example, you're into the country look, cafe curtains could be the perfect answer. Cafes are short enough to protect your privacy, but it still leaves the top of the windows open to the sun and light.

Don't call it a minivan just because it has sliding side doors. The Mazda5 is a "multi-activity vehicle" well suited for those active families who resist the "M" word, Mazda says. And while some refer to this model as a "mini" minivan, it is actually longer than the first Dodge Caravan that launched the segment.The compact size of the six-passenger Mazda5 makes it ideal in the busy, young family's rush-about day. And while smaller than a "full size" minivan, there is complete flip-and-fold creativity to the storage space, simple step-in to all rows and a comfortable footprint for parking lots and the garage.

Last week, the price of crude oil jumped to $113 a barrel, and suspiciously soon afterward, the national average for regular unleaded gasoline leaped over the $4 a gallon mark. Lost production in Libya was blamed for the gas price hike, yet even at $4 per gallon, it's really a bargain. Before you start sending me hate e-mail, let me explain. Even at $4, we are not paying the real cost of gasoline. Our federal government subsidizes the oil industry with numerous tax breaks, price protections, and research and development funding that totals billions of dollars every year. These subsidies help keep domestic oil companies competitive with international producers, and keep gas relatively cheap at the pump.

Filmmaker Takashi Miike has, well, blood in his blood. The prolific provocateur has crossed boundaries and cinematic borders with his eye-popping gore fests. 1999's "Audition" still holds as one of the scariest, most stomach-churning horror flicks the world over. American fright disciples fall all over themselves for a chance to pay homage to his brutal art.

A good mac and cheese recipe is always a crowd pleaser, and Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar has a rich version with a hint of chipotle pepper.
Christopher Gardner and Matt Renstrom, chef partners of the steakhouses downtown and in La Jolla, Calif., offered to share their recipe for this classic comfort food with us.

It has been over two years since the shockingly bad fighter, "Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe," was released, and the MK games before that weren't much better. That's why the idea of a series reboot is welcome in this case. Since Midway is no longer the publisher, the developers have decided to go all the way in creating the new "Mortal Kombat."

Q: There is an alcove in the second parlor of our old Victorian house. It's too shallow for a sitting area. I don't know what to do with it, except maybe put in some plant stands and plants -- there is also a window.
A: Not a bad thought, but it just might be that you are squandering a chance to have that alcove give you a really dramatic return on the space investment.
Behold the glorious pictured hideaway that's been conjured from an arched alcove in a rambling country farmhouse. And all it took was a comfortable daybed and a double helping of imagination. Featured in designer Chippy Irvine's book "Shades of Country" (the Taunton Press), this alcove was evidently meant as a study nook -- the arch is flanked with bookcases and more are featured inside the alcove.

The British are coming. The British are coming ... and wearing hats, of course! The royals across the pond have always had a penchant for donning dramatic headwear, and with the upcoming wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, hats are once again making a fashion statement here and abroad. But most of us probably won't be topping our spring outfits off with a daring hat like the ones London milliner Philip Treacy has designed for the likes of Lady Gaga and the royal wedding party. Instead, we may choose one of the big brim straw hats to wear to a festive occasion right here at home. Kentucky Derby party anyone? And we all know about the trick of plopping on a baseball cap for a bad hair day!

A couple of weeks ago, I toured the 1-year-old Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center in National City, Calif., where local elementary school children get the opportunity to do hands-on science and nutrition classes, gardening and cooking.
While I was there, chef Sara Polczynski, formerly pastry chef for the Cohn Restaurant Group and currently with the San Diego Community College Continuing Education Program, was cooking up an aromatic batch of minestrone soup for a lucky group of sixth-graders.

Many of these items are yard-sale fodder, or can be found parked by the curb with a "free" sign attached. If you can't find what you need through curb-shopping, or the classifieds in this paper, try websites like Craigslist and Freecycle.

While attending the Hackettstown Rotary Club meeting, DoctorsExpress’ Joe Castelano and I listened to the speaker, Lucy Hurley, Community Relations Director of Home Instead Senior Care. She described the levels of care that Home Instead Senior Care provided and referred to the book Stages of Senior Care by Paul and Lori Hogan. It was so intriguing that I had to read the book. It deals with the problems that families face with care of their older loved ones. In detail, it gave a good understanding of the situation facing the ‘children’ of the aging parents, infirmity, financial, ambulatory and familiar surroundings. The book suggests many ways to approach the dilemma that they face.
