LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

L ike Venice, Amsterdam is a great place to get lost. Just pick a direction and you'll find something worth seeing. You might wind up in an unchanged 17th-century back alley, where the smell of a tea and spice shop might entice you. Or you might emerge in an unknown square where a cheese market will have hundreds of specimens.

To enjoy an art form that is all but dead, here are 25 reasons to get out there and drink away one full day, each designed to cut down at the knees that pesky Puritan guilt and stave away the condescending voices that surround.

Many of us are unaware of how easy it is to cook grains and how versatile and tasty they really can be, so here's a little introduction to get you started.

Plus, bike racing, sports and home schooling, online gaming, and more.
