SALISBURY — The 178th anniversary of the royal wedding between Queen Victoria and her German-born first cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, in 1840 was on Saturday, Feb 10.

To study or not to study: That is the question at Noble Horizons

SALISBURY — Those in the know were ducking out of the Salisbury summer heat on a weekly basis, and taking a quick trip to snow-covered Denmark — more specifically, to the royal palace in the frozen port city of Helsingør, where something is certainly rotten. 
There are, however, no frequent flier miles or nose plugs needed.

Cover a bed of hot coals and chunks of limestone, first with corn husks, then with seaweed. Then add lobsters in wooden crates, corn and potatoes in burlap sacks and clams in mesh bags. Cover the entire thing with heavy tarps. Drink beer (or other beverage) and wait.
