Tips for passing down family photos in the digital age (ARA) - For many years, photography meant developing a roll of film at the local store, sliding your glossy prints into a photo album and then placing them on your bookshelf. Digital photography changed all that, and now your photos live on computers, hard drives, CDs, USB drives and even your phone. But just because photos rarely go into leather-bound albums doesn’t mean that they’re any less precious. The evolution of photography has changed the ways in which we use photos - and it makes sense to think differently about how to preserve and pass on your treasured memories. Consider these tips for preserving photos in the digital age and beyond. • Select. Digital photography lets you take almost countless photos far more than you could capture with a roll of film. But this volume of pictures can often overwhelm the family photo curator who needs to sort, evaluate and store hundreds or even thousands of images after a single vacation or special event. To avoid image overload, whenever you add new photos to your collection, edit out as many

as you can. You’ll end up with the best photos of the bunch and won’t have to wade through an endless array of shots just to reach your favorites. • Share. As much as taking photos is about capturing memories for yourself, it’s also a great way to share experiences with friends and family. And for sharing, digital photography and social media is a match made in heaven - instead of sending off prints with holiday cards, you can quickly upload them to the Web. If you want to share a single snapshot at a moment’s notice, you can post directly to Twitter or even use photo-centric social media apps. For larger groups of photos, from your latest vacation or baby’s first year, add albums to Facebook or other photo hosting and sharing sites - just be sure to provide captions so everyone knows what they’re looking at. • Preserve. SanDisk issued results from an online survey conducted on its behalf by Harris Interactive from July 28-August 1, 2011 among 2,294 U.S. adults aged 18 and older which found that 79 percent of U.S. adults with digital photos plan on passing them down to future generations. But holding onto digital photos for long periods of time can prove nerve wracking if you are unsure whether the storage technology will preserve your photos far into the future. CDs can scratch and external hard drives contain moving parts. To meet this need, SanDisk developed a photo album for the digital age called the SanDisk Memory Vault, a new device that can preserve digital photos in their original quality for up to 100 years. About the size of a pack of cards, the Memory Vault plugs into a computer’s USB port, letting you drag and drop your favorite

Chesapeake Inspired Gifts Make Your Season Bright Part of an ongoing series by interior designer and Kent Island native, Jess Cromwell of Island Furniture Studio The Holiday crunch is on and we’re all short on time but that’s no reason to fall into the “gift card” trap. Show your loved ones and clients they are as special as you are by selecting a gift that reflects your Chesapeake style. Making a donation to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in your gift recipient’s name is a wonderful way to honor the receiver and make a difference locally. It’s easy to do and feels good too. Plus, the size is always right. If you have time and just a little bit of creativity, hand-made gifts can be incredibly rewarding. Abandoned oyster shells turned into handmade wreaths and centerpieces or added to a pre-made arrangement lend a unique and local flavor to seasonal decorations. Try making your own “Chesapeake

Bay Seasonings Kit” or “Steaming Kit” for crab lovers; numerous recipe suggestions are available online. Vintage or used bushel baskets can be adorned with rope, ribbons or paint and used for decorative signs or catch-all baskets at the front door. Check local fruit stands and packing houses for inexpensive cast-offs or shop online. At Island Furniture Studio and many other local retailers, you can find coastal inspired gifts that are beautiful and practical too. Popular items feature our beloved blue crab which can be found in many different styles on serving dishes, cutlery, wine stoppers and all species of table ware. Gifts that are inspired by our Chesapeake Bay lifestyle, both past and present, include rustic ship’s lanterns, glass floats, sea oars, wall art and hand-painted signs. If money truly is no object, a fully restored Skipjack would please the most ardent Chesapeake Bay enthusiast. Happy Holidays!

DID YOU KNOW?! HOLIDAY LORE, TRADITIONS, AND TRIVIA: • Does your dog like his biscuits? According to old wives’ tales, at midnight on every Christmas Eve animals are given the power of speech for a brief period. (Better be nice to Fido that day.) • Where did the “X” in Xmas come from? Contrary to what many people think, the “X” is not a way to get away from associating “Christ” with Christmas. Its origin is religious in nature. The Greek word that gives us the English word “Christ” started with the letter “chi” or “X”. The early Christians who spoke Greek used the word to signify “Christ’s Mass.” However, as centuries passed, fewer and fewer people understood ancient Greek and thought the “X” was pagan-like, and even showed disrespect. • When are the 12 days of Christmas? The Christmas season begins at sundown on December 24 and lasts until sundown on January 5. The true 12 days of Christmas. (Tell that to the retail stores!)

Have yourself a heartburn-free holiday (ARA) - For frequent heartburn sufferers, the abundance of rich food and drink at the myriad holiday gatherings between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve can be trouble. Even those who suffer occasional heartburn can find their mild indigestion flares up more during the holidays. Contrary to its name, heartburn, which affects 60 million Americans at least once a month, has nothing to do with the heart. It’s a digestive problem that is also called reflux esophagitis or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Gastroesophageal reflux occurs when contents in the stomach flow back into the esophagus. This happens when the valve between the stomach and the esophagus does not close properly. Heartburn is most often described as a

burning sensation behind the breast bone that moves up toward the neck or throat. This occurs when stomach acid irritates the normal lining of the esophagus. People may also experience acid regurgitation with heartburn, which is the sensation of stomach fluid coming up through the chest into the mouth. Less common symptoms that may also be associated with gastroesophageal reflux include unexplained chest pain, wheezing, sore throat and cough, among others. According to some physicians, planning ahead and knowing which over-the-counter (OTC) treatments may help are essential to keep your gatherings merry and bright. “I always recommend heartburn sufferers be prepared and bring along a few over-the-counter treatments, like antacids or H2 blockers, when they are heading out for a holiday party,” says Dr. Tom Rupp, a Michigan-licensed gastroenterologist. “With regard to specific medications or brands, I would actually recommend patients just go with a store-brand treatment. Store-brand OTCs have the same efficacy as national brands and are approved by the FDA, but cost much less.”

Keep them guessing this holiday season! Refresh your skin this holiday season with one of our many non-invasive skin and laser cosmetic services. Your friends and family won’t know exactly what has changed—just that you look younger than ever. And we won’t tell! Gift certificates available!

Allegan, Mich.-based Perrigo is a pharmaceutical company that manufactures and distributes most of the over-the-counter medications found under store-brand labels at leading retailers, grocers, club stores and pharmacies. According to Perrigo, these products are the primary treatments available over-the-counter for heartburn relief: * Antacids. Antacids come as liquids and tablets like calcium carbonate (name brands: Rolaids and Tums) * H2 blockers. Indicated for occasional heartburn, these medications are most effective when taken an hour before eating. Examples include famotidine and ranitidine (name brands: Pepcid and Zantac). * Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). PPIs are in-

dicated for people who have heartburn at least twice a week. Omeprazole (name brand: Prilosec OTC) won’t relieve heartburn right away and may take up to four days for full effect - so they’re not helpful for immediate, temporary relief after you’ve already overindulged. “For most people holiday heartburn is nothing to worry about. However, if you’re having ongoing symptoms, you need to see a doctor. The worst thing you could do is ignore chronic symptoms, hoping they’ll resolve in the New Year on their own,” Rupp says. You can find more information about the symptoms and treatments for holiday heartburn at the National Institute of Health, or the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.

A New Review for an Old Product

on the iPod’s features and presence. Those products would be the iTouch which added wi-fi, and then the iPhone which added cellular phone capability and ultimately the iPad. Somewhere in between those product generations Steve Jobs introduced an inexpensive gadget that tied everything together and help launch a new service. I am referring to a little gadget that is called Apple TV. It’s been available for a few years. I understood what it did, but never actually had that “hands on” experience. Prompted by a customer, I went over the bridge to the big box store and purchased an Apple TV. The product’s name might be a little misleading. While it connects to your TV, it really isn’t a TV but a wireless traffic cop. It’s not much larger than a cell phone, has no display, and cost $89. OK Larry, so its called Apple TV, but its not a TV, what does it do? OK, let me set this up a little bit. Most of us have at least one computer and if you have or had an iPod, you probably store your music in iTunes on the computer. In my case, I have two laptops, one iPhone, an audio system and a flat panel TV. The laptops are Windows based, not Apple. So, who could possibly make a product that integrated those incompatible stand alone systems, and what might it cost? Answer; Apple and the product cost $89.

different photos, videos and music or do you have to constantly sync each unit when you take another photo or purchase a new song? Great question! Remember in the first paragraph when I mentioned that Steve Jobs introduced an inexpensive gadget that tied everything together and help launch a new service. Well that is where the relatively new service called “iCloud” comes in. Most of us have several devices with photos, music and movies stored. iCloud can not only back up our digital entertainment, but it will manage up to 5 devices so that every computer has the same information stored. Is that yet another service that we have to subscribe to? The first 5 GBs are free. After that there is an annual fee, but it is very reasonable. If you were to lose your iPhone or laptop computer, it would be well worth the fee to have your digital entertainment backed up remotely. Apple TV is not a new product, but it is really amazing, simple and inexpensive. It doesn’t care if you use Apple or Windows computers. The Wi-Fi ability allows your iPhone to be the remote control for your system. And the iCloud service is the next step in the grand Apple (Jobs) vision.

I am really amazed at how Apple Computer turned itself around with the invention of the iPod. I really thought the company was headed for a financial free-fall. Not only was the iPod the slickest music player on the market, but subsequent products built

Come on Larry, there isn’t anything that can integrate all of those units, Think again, the Apple TV device not only can, it was simple to set up. So, what exactly does the device do? Lets say I want to play music from my iPhone on my surround sound audio system. I could connect a cable to the iPhone and plug it into the receiver. Or, I could connect the Apple TV device to the receiver and stream music from my iPhone wirelessly to the receiver via the Apple TV device. Basically I can walk around the house and play music wirelessly to my audio system from my handheld iPhone. Pretty cool huh? OK, not bad, but how about photos or videos? Wouldn’t it be nice to wirelessly stream photos taken on your iPhone to your widescreen TV. The answer; YES! Apple TV does that also. In fact you can play music while watching a slideshow of the photos on your iPhone. There is even software built-in with background graphics that make the experience really look professional. Let’s take this a step further, can I watch a movie that I downloaded from iTunes to my Windows computer? Once again, YES! Yeah but dude, that sounds complicated! All I can say is that it was very easy to set up and use. We’re talking “plug and play” not “plug and pray”! And being able to walk around without wires is a beautiful thing. But having several computers and a handheld iPhone creates another dilemma. Does each device have

Maryland our Maryland

Caroline County

Caroline County was formed in 1774 with Lady Caroline Eden (daughter of the fifth Lord Baltimore) giving her name to the county, but she and her family returned to England in 1776. Lady Caroline never returned. Caroline County is situated two hours from Philadelphia and two hours from Washington, DC. The county is located on the Chesapeake Peninsula between the Choptank River and the Mason-Dixon Line. Caroline is proud to inform folks that their county is one that is perfectly poised to take one “...all the way back to the 1700’s, retrace Underground Railroad pathways, and revisit captivating stories of the Civil War.” Many of the interesting sites in beautiful, bucolic (I always wanted to use that word) Caroline County are such a fit with their environment and way of life, it’s difficult to imagine which came first! Caroline has 80 miles of water trails. There is a heritage farm experience at the Shore Good Farm where visitors can touch, taste, and feel the history of the Eastern Shore. Tuckahoe State Park has a 60-acre lake plus camping cabins and campsites. The Underground Railway Byway highlights the stories of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass’s early lives. The Adkins Arboretum offers a 400-acre garden and preserve with pathways through native woodlands, meadows, streams and wetlands. Caroline County describes itself as: ... “ where you will find Harmony and Friendship just around American Corner”--how true. If you stroll outside, near the small town of Ridgely, on a summer, windless day, and remain very quiet, you just might hear the sound of a “heavenly” flutter overhead and spot a colorful hang glider effortlessly flying above that may have just taken off from the Highland Aerospace flying field! The pilot may possibly be on his/her way to Ocean City or beyond. Ridgely is the only place in Maryland where one is able to take tan-

dem hang glider flying lessons. The Caroline countryside is dotted with romantic, unique small towns. Denton is the quintessential town for antique hunters. Federalsburg is blessed with all the necessities for shipbuilding and milling. Goldsboro has a rich history of early commercial businesses so important in the colonial times due in part to its rich natural resources, and the town remains a small, charming village. Greensboro still carries its 19th century flavor which is really appreciated by its residents and its visitors. Henderson is a community that developed around a stagecoach stop and a post office in the 1800’s. Hillsboro began as a tobacco-trading center and was the setting for several important events in the life of famous Frederick Douglass. Hillsboro still celebrates old-fashion parades, community picnics, and firemen’s parades. Marydel gets its name from its Maryland and Delaware roots. If you like history, you can view a crown stone of the Mason-Dixon Line here. Preston is the perfect representation of small-town USA! Preston served as a focal point for the Underground Railroad during the 1840’s-50’s. The Lindchester Mill is a must-see in order to get the full flavor of the area’s diverse heritage. Ridgely ushered in the railroad for the county which became invaluable for moving the abundant harvests of luscious fruits, vegetables, grains, etc. as well as travel, of course. Lastly, is Templeville which was once known as a safe haven for Underground Railroad escapees due to many free black householders and sympathetic Irish immigrants that lived there. Many thanks go to the Caroline Office of Tourism for their sharing so much information for this article. For more information, contact the Caroline Office of Tourism, 10219 River Landing Rd., Denton, MD 21629, or, or e-mail: I’ll look forward to your joining me on our next trip through beautiful Maryland our Maryland. • 410-304-2024
