Q. All I ever hear about the sun is how dangerous it is. But, when I was a kid, my mother used to tell me to get out in the sun and play. Did my mother give me bad advice?

(I've devoted a lot of space to the dangers of sun exposure. I believe I owe the sun a couple of columns to make up for this. Here's the first one.)

Most public health messages have focused on the hazards of too much sun exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) rays, an invisible component of sunlight, can cause skin damage, cataracts, wrinkles, age spots and skin cancer.

LONDON (AP) – Prince William and Kate Middleton will marry April 29 in Westminster Abbey, the historic London church where Princess Diana's funeral was held.

Royal officials said Tuesday the couple chose the date because they wanted a spring wedding.

It's also the feast day of St. Catherine of Siena, whose name Middleton shares – though that is a coincidence.

The government said the day, a Friday, would be a public holiday.

Purchase an instant-read thermometer.

Start potatoes in cold water so they cook evenly.
