MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Heat know what's coming from the Boston Celtics. "Their all," Dwyane Wade said. That's what usually happens when one team is fighting to save its season - and in this case, the Big Four era in Boston might be at stake as well. The NBA Eastern Conference finals shift to Boston tonight for Game 3, with the Heat holding a 2-0 lead after staving off perhaps the Celtics' best shot to win a classic.

It certainly seems like there is a day for everything. In case you wondered, today is National Cotton Candy Day, Tuesday is National Pastry Day, and Dec. 21, is National Flashlight Day. One day you may have missed this past Friday was World Soil Day, a day to highlight the importance of soils in our lives. While that may seem a bit weird, the purpose is to call attention to the vital role soils play in our lives since we tend to either take soil for granted or simply not consider soil at all.

Pretend you are a Pied-billed Grebe with a gourmet meal of Leopard Frog. Your buddies are sitting by watching with envy as you claim your prize and start to swallow a very rare meal in winter with mostly frozen water in the Bottoms. There is one small problem-- it is a BIG frog. I watched the Grebe make multiple attempts to swallow the frog which was too large for his throat. He was acrobatic and agile in using gravity and every possible angle to ingest the frog-- all to no avail. When he got the frog exactly over his head ...
Hostesses often worry about what to feed guests with special dietary needs at holiday time. This is especially true for a guest with a strong allergy against wheat, for example, or someone with insulin-dependent diabetes. Providing several simple whole food choices and staying away from so many highly processed foods is the best plan I can offer.
From the phone calls that I have received over the last year, I have found that volunteer trees can be a nuisance around homes, yards and fields.
