You know you love singing in the shower. But why stop when the water does?

Kohler’s new Moxie shower head has an integrated Bluetooth speaker that syncs with a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or MP3 player to stream your favorite tunes. The speaker is removable, so you can move it around the house or recharge the battery.

The shower head is available with a spray of either one or two grams per minute, in either a white or polished chrome finish.

It has a suggested retail price of $199 and is available from home centers and other retailers that sell Kohler products. You can find a store near you at www.us.kohler.com.

Book sets romantic

table for two

Most of us pull out the stops only when we’re entertaining a crowd. Moll Anderson thinks that same kind of attention should be lavished on that one special person.

She’s encouraging readers to do just that with her new book, “Seductive Tables for Two: Tablescapes, Picnics, & Recipes That Inspire Romance.”

Anderson, an interior designer and familiar TV presence, makes a case for using a table for two to set the table for romance. She shares her vision for 16 intimate encounters, from a sunrise breakfast to a nightcap in front of the fire.

She includes decorative details, recipes and helpful information such as ideas for themes and guidance on choosing colors.

“Seductive Tables for Two” is published by Moll Anderson Productions and sells for $19.95 in softcover.

On Thanksgiving, dinner rolls with buttered tops were put into a myrtlewood bowl that I love. Since the bowl isn’t lacquered, I now have butter remnants all over the bowl. I tried using cornstarch to absorb the residue, but no luck. Any hope for my much-loved bowl?

Sandy Bolton of Myrtlewood Factory Showroom in North Bend, Ore., said the usual care of myrtlewood involves rubbing it with oil, so re-oiling your bowl might even out the spots. She recommended washing the bowl first with mild soap and water, and then rubbing it with a bit of mineral oil.

If that doesn’t work, she recommended lightly sanding the bowl with fine-grit sandpaper and then re-oiling it.
