Dear Polly: Can poultry dishes be left to marinate at room temperature for an hour or two? - Ann Dear Ann: No meat should be left at room temperature, even when soaking in an acidic marinade (which can slow some, but not necessarily all, bacterial development). It's just not safe. Many bacteria develop and grow at room temperature, including salmonella, which can be present in poultry. Some old recipes and foreign recipes specify marinating at room temperature because the marinade penetrates the food faster than when refrigerated, but I don't think it's worth the risk.

Dear Polly: A friend of mine has been the recipient of several quarts of steel-cut oats. Please tell us how to use them. - Mrs. L.M.S. Dear Mrs. L.M.S.: Steel-cut oats are sometimes known as Irish oatmeal or Scotch oats. The oat groats (grains) are cut into three or four pieces instead of being rolled flat as are our rolled oats. Steel-cut oats can be prepared as oatmeal just like rolled oats, although they do take longer to cook. Simmer the oats in water for about 20 minutes, or until the oatmeal is the consistency you prefer.

At the state's suggestion, Melissa Cahill monitored the odor in her Harry Street neighborhood for more than three months. The odor, which she likened to a newly opened shower curtain, wouldn't go away. Monday, the Conshohocken resident got a phone call from an official at the Department of Environmental Resources that made her feel that "finally, a little person made a difference. " She said that John Krueger of DER's air quality staff told her that the agency had traced the odors to Vy-Cal Plastics Corp.

Question: I have an antique claw-foot tub with the original faucet fixtures. Years ago, stores used to sell the shower hookup kit for old claw-foot tubs. I had the kit installed. I have the showerhead and the circular ring (around the tub for the shower curtain) that it is attached to. I am missing the parts that connect the showerhead to the faucet. It was probably a hose with some type of hardware at the ends that attached to the showerhead and faucet. I am selling the house so I do not want to replace the old faucets on the tub or spend a lot of money for this.

Who pays nearly $100 for a gallon of white paint? Of all the things that recently indicted State Sen. Vincent Fumo's Citizens' Alliance for Better Neighborhoods allegedly purchased with public and donated funds, it's the paint that has people shaking their heads. Sure, Philadelphians can probably understand the Citizens' Alliance's alleged purchases of tiki torches and turkey-fryer accessories. That's regular-guy stuff. But paint imported from Holland by a fellow known for standing up for the little man?

"Growing Pains - Parents Get Them Too!," the third annual Free Parents Workshop Day coordinated by the Chester County Intermediate Unit dealt with summer activities along with 15 other topics geared to adults who want to get involved in their children's learning.

Great-looking rooms are not necessarily the ones with the most elegant or fashionable furniture. Rather, they could just be the canvas for an imaginative mind. Design cosmetics, deftly applied, can be as dramatic as a room re-do. The best part is, they don't have to cost a bundle. To get your creative juices flowing, here are five ideas to help spruce up almost any room in the house. THE BEDROOMS You don't need an elegant four-poster bed to make a bedroom special.

Apparently, if you believe Peter Kushkowski of Portland, Conn., I goofed pinpointing the source of rusting of a heating register next to a reader's toilet. "From my experience, the obvious cause is not condensation as you suggested, but her husband," said Kushkowski, identifying poor aim as the cause. "Advising him to sit down as his wife does will go a long way to eliminating the reoccurrence of rust - it worked at our house," he said. Of the six e-mails suggesting this as a reason, Kushkowski was the only male sender.

Beth Terry has been making homemade mustard. Not because it tastes better - although maybe it does. She didn't want to buy it anymore because she could find her favorite kind only in plastic jars. For nearly two years, she has been trying to rid her life of plastic. OK, not the computer monitor and the telephone, although she's trying to be a more conscious consumer in those areas as well. But certainly disposable plastic. She switched from liquid soap - another plastic container!

Keep them in two bins near his dressing quarters. Every so often, remove a Phillies contract from Bin No. 1 and some large bills from Bin No. 2. Then, pull aside first baseman Rico Brogna, make him Hancock the pact, stuff the bills (Monopoly version acceptable) in his pocket and announce to the gathered media, "We have signed Rico Brogna to yet another contract. " Wink, wink. Eight days ago in St. Louis, the Phillies extended Brogna's pact through the 2000 season.

GERALD VEASLEY, 9 and 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Zanzibar Blue, Broad and Walnut streets. Cover: $15. Info: 215-732-4500. Gerald Veasley has always been more of a collaborative player than an outright "look how fast I can move my fingers" bassist. Don't misunderstand. Veasley, 44, is an outstanding bassist who can easily unleash a torrent of runs and slaps and chords from his six-string bass. But for the native Philadelphian, soloing isn't where he gets the biggest thrill.

Among the topics unlikely to cross your mind this holiday weekend are the floor you walk on, the window you open, the bottle you uncap, the credit card you pull out, the shower curtain you still haven't cleaned, and the siding you paid someone too much to install. They are just things, and we usually don't think about them or concern ourselves with their origins. Well, everything begins somewhere. And all of these things began with the genius of one man. So today, if only just for a moment, when you crinkle a piece of food wrap or kick the tires, pause to consider the life of an inventor named Waldo Semon, who died Wednesday at age 100. And consider what he did. Waldo Lonsbury Semon invented vinyl.

Mike Brown left Lycoming College in Williamsport and set about his noble mission: to teach high school students about American history and government. But noble wasn't paying the bills. When Brown realized that people would pay money to drink his beer, wrestle bears he hired, and take flying leaps into a Velcro-covered wall he had erected, he found the solution to his money problems - and a pay raise that most social studies teachers only dream about. Brown, 35, and partners Bill Daley, 49; Mike Gallen, 30, and Ralph Lamarra, 29, are the owners of what soon will be Plymouth Township's newest nightclub, Brownie's Pub. It is scheduled to open in time for St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
