Thanksgiving is in one week and already it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
That's especially true in Bethlehem, the Christmas City.
And it's no more so than at ArtsQuest's SteelStacks on the city's southside.
During the past two decades, Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem has delighted almost one million guests from near and far with its mix of gift ideas, old-world charm and holiday cheer.
Q. I have high blood pressure and I'm trying to cut down on the sodium in my diet. Should I switch from regular table salt to sea salt?
Sea salt is made from evaporating sea water. Table salt comes from underground mines.
Sea salt sounds healthier doesn't it? It evokes images of crashing surf, tanned bodies, and marlin jumping out of the water.
Sea salt and table salt contain the same amount of sodium chloride. Switching won't help you with your high blood pressure. But you're on the right track.

Cleaning up tools and equipment is an important practice related to the garden that should not be ignored in the fall.
Proper cleanup of tools now will leave them in top shape and ready to use when spring comes.
Store tools in a dry place indoors, never outdoors where they will rust over the winter. Keep tools clean and dry. Never put tools away wet. If washing off soil from a tool, dry it when done.
Wheelbarrows, spreaders and garden carts should be cleaned with a hose. Sprayers should be washed with laundry detergent and water.
