In The Land Of Floats And Beads, You'd Better Bring Deviled Eggs

Eggs and milk might make for a breakfast you'd expect to find on your table each Monday. But with Fat Tuesday fast arriving, Poppy Tooker gives this standard fare some twists fit for Mardi Gras.

Last year, a Palestinian man fishing off the coast of the Gaza Strip discovered what is thought to be a 2,500-year-old bronze statue of the Greek god Apollo. The rare statue vanished from public view almost immediately after being pulled from the sea. The Hamas government in Gaza says it now has control of the statue.
