I'm trying to understand when suntan lotion got weird. I remember the days when baby oil and vinegar counted as suntan lotion. Yes, you read that correctly. The Flying Scottolines used to go to the Jersey Shore for two weeks every summer, and Mother Mary would mix baby oil and red wine vinegar in a bottle before we left for a day at the beach. I have no idea where she got the recipe. Maybe the Mayo Clinic. Or the Mayonnaise Clinic. Anyway, we would slather on baby oil and vinegar, dressing ourselves like a salad.

Many food-allergic kids are bullied, teased - by adults, too Research shows that many kids with food allergies report being bullied or teased about the condition. About 8 percent of U.S. children are allergic to at least one food, and many of them have multiple food allergies, studies show. The foods most likely to cause reactions in children include peanuts, tree nuts (such as cashews and walnuts), milk, shellfish, and eggs. A 2010 survey of more than 350 parents of food-allergic kids found that 35 percent of children 5 and older were bullied, teased, or harassed because of the allergy, and 86 percent of those reported it happening more than once.

Last winter, I made a vow to keep my feet perfect. The goal was to slide into summer with toes painted in the season's hot pinks and coral shades and show off smooth ankles. So I made a personal promise to get winter pedicures every three weeks - sometimes every two. At first I treated just my feet, but then my hands started to feel left out. They work hard, too, typing day in and day out. And maybe, just maybe, if I kept the polish on my nails, they'd eventually grow out even.

I LOVE Marion Jones. Always did and always will. But it seems her charismatic, crooked little smile wasn't the only thing that was crooked. But why did this champion admit to being a "chumpion" now? I mean, she's not competing anymore. What did they threaten her with to make an already broke, withering, once-wonder-woman come clean now? (Or is it come clear?) Len Barry, Philadelphia

If you want cosmetics that remove cellulite, reduce wrinkles, combat acne, moisturize skin, improve skin elasticity, prevent oxidant damage, and so much more, just kelp yourself. Sorry. Puns are hard to resist when talking about the growing wave of "marine" cosmetics - products containing extracts of seaweed, sea mud, and other things you'd probably consider icky at the shore. "Nature's beauty seacret!" puns an advertisement for SeaAllure, a new anti-wrinkle face patch made by Bio Med Sciences of Allentown.

The trip to Disney World with her husband, Kevin, four children and nanny was "a total blast" for Karen Stillwell of Gilbert, Ariz. The trip home was anything but. "We're going to need another vacation," Kevin Stillwell said. The Stillwells were victims of the air travel upheaval that affected scores of passengers yesterday inside Philadelphia International Airport. There, travelers were forced to chuck lip gloss and suntan lotion into garbage bags already bulging with toiletries.

Ash - flaky skin that looks like chipped, white paint spread on elbows and knees and smattered in the creases of fingers and toes. These areas have a tendency to be dry on everyone, especially during the cold winter months. But on black people, ash is a bigger aesthetic nuisance. Unchecked, it elicits taunts from school-aged children - "Why you look like you been kickin' flour?" - and admonishment from mothers everywhere. "Girl, get in this house right now and put some lotion on those ashy legs of yours.

You're headed to the beach and want some sensible, yet slightly elegant, food with minimal fuss. Take life easy. Concentrate on no-cook or cook-ahead dishes to serve chilled or at room temperature. Think cheese, fruits, cured meats. Pasta salad. Cold chicken or turkey, poached salmon or lobster - all are tempting options. Your menu depends, of course, on whether you're day-tripping with a long drive ahead or just toting a blanket and basket of food a half-block from your Shore cottage.
