What do you do with all of those leftover eggs? Cobb salad? Deviled eggs? Too obvious. Here are four ways to cook with hard-boiled eggs that you might not have thought of. -- Egg salad with capers and celery: Chop the eggs, add sliced celery, a little minced red onion and drained capers and bind everything with mayonnaise. Garnish with celery leaves. -- Sauce gribiche: Don't try to say it; just make it. Combine minced shallots, capers and cornichons. Make a vinaigrette with olive oil and a bit of Dijon mustard and add that.

PORTSMOUTH, Va. - The ship's engineer was seasick and spitting up his medication. A deckhand had been tossed past the mainmast, breaking three ribs. The captain had been slammed against a cabin table, wrenching his back. He could barely walk. Capt. Robin Walbridge, sailing the tall ship Bounty from Connecticut to Florida, was trying to outflank Hurricane Sandy, which was roaring toward New York. But instead of slipping around the storm, the ship had crossed directly into Sandy's path.

PORTSMOUTH, Va.--The captain of the doomed replica sailing ship HMS Bounty twice rebuffed his chief mate's desperate pleas to abandon ship as the vessel rolled and pitched in Hurricane Sandy's fierce winds and 25-foot seas, the mate testified Tuesday. When Capt. Robin Walbridge finally gave the order to abandon ship, the Bounty rolled over and tossed the crew into the Atlantic Ocean 90 miles off Cape Hatteras during the storm. Walbridge disappeared and is presumed dead. One crew member drowned in the Oct. 29 sinking of the three-masted ship, which was built for the 1962 movie "Mutiny on the Bounty.

A new indoor market in downtown Victoria, Canada , will open in the spring, making Vancouver Island's abundant produce available year-round.

Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, is at the southern tip of Vancouver Island. It's about 60 miles from Vancouver and about a three-hour (or less) ferry ride from Seattle. The new market will be in what was once the Hudson's Bay department store.

- One night as my sister and I walked across the rugged yet strangely delicate terrain of a place called Farm 215, the path to our cottage lighted only by the stars and a flashlight, the wine-wobbly beam suddenly illuminated several sets of legs. A moment of what the ...? And then we realized that we were standing in the middle of a small herd of horses, including two mares and their foals, that roam the South African eco-retreat outside Gansbaai. It was a perfect mother-child moment and a symbol of new beginnings in this Southern Hemisphere spring.

Some ideas that seem so simple unleash waves of creativity that expand in exquisitely complex ways. One such musical brainstorm is to offer a new body of work as notated sheet music, as Los Angeles songwriter Beck Hansen has done. His new work, "Song Reader," consists of 20 new pieces that the artist hasn't recorded. Rather, he teamed with the book publisher McSweeney's to unveil the songs in notated form. It is designed as a folio, and the hope is that the individually illustrated songbooks included within will inspire other musicians to interpret the written music and then share it. It was, describes writer Jody Rosen in the liner notes, "an experiment in ventriloquism": Provide the melodic and lyrical dialogue, but leave the aesthetic voice to strangers, who would head to parlors both real and virtual to perform the results.

When he was commissioner of the NFL, Paul Tagliabue was often regarded as the smartest person in the room. Tuesday, he reminded us why. In ruling on the New Orleans Saints' pay-to-injure bounty case, Tagliabue somehow found a middle ground that made the suspended players look like the winners, while protecting the league against any potential damages. Tagliabue, appointed to hear the latest appeals of the four suspended players, affirmed the "factual findings" of Commissioner Roger Goodell but vacated any penalties to the players.

Former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue on Tuesday overturned the case against the New Orleans Saints players involved in the bountygate scandal, vacating all discipline against them. Tagliabue, appointed to hear the latest round of player appeals, said that even though he affirms the factual findings of Commissioner Roger Goodell, and that those findings could justify fines, “this entire case has been contaminated by the coaches and others in the Saints' organization.” “Unlike Saints' broad organizational misconduct, player appeals involve sharply focused issues of alleged individual player misconduct in several different aspects,” Tagliabue said in a written statement.
