Just because a football game has a beginning, a middle and an end, one should not assume that the same finite limitations apply to the tortured process of trying to bring a National Football League franchise to Baltimore. The drama goes on and on and on before an audience both frustrated and hopelessly ensnared.The day after the NFL chose Jacksonville as its next venue, the wait was on for dissatisfied team owners elsewhere to make overtures to move to Baltimore, where a lucrative franchise package dangled enticingly.

I am standing at the front door, locked out of my own house. If this were a movie, it'd be raining. Thankfully, this isn't so it isn't. But the reality is embarrassing enough without any Hollywood embellishments. You see, we have this digital lock. To open it, you input a numeric code. We bought it months ago and I've been using it without incident. But now, standing out here in the dark, I am, suddenly and for no apparent reason, stuck. After a moment, with more hope than confidence, I punch in some numbers.

When you see those bright lights, hear the loud screams coming from rides and savor that unmistakable aroma of cotton candy, french fries and hot dogs, you know it must be carnival season in Anne Arundel County.Many volunteer fire companies -- Odenton, Riviera Beach and Woodland Beach, for example -- already have had carnivals, while Deale and Earleigh Heights hold theirs this month. And an 88-year-old institution -- the Big Glen Burnie Carnival -- returns at the end of the month.The Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Department carnival opens today and runs through Saturday.

Having visited the farmers market recently for the first time, I was thrilled to see the featured article, "Too many fruits and vegetables?" in the July 25 issue. I had been discouraged to find just a few vendors, situated in a sweltering parking lot, the nearby trees still too small to cast any useful shade, and there were few customers. This was a totally different experience from country farmers markets I've visited where people come from miles around and are guaranteed to learn something from the vendors.

What does a European home cricket, lightly fried in sunflower oil, taste like? Justin Maffett didn't want to find out yesterday at Baltimore's Carrie Murray Nature Center in Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park. "It would taste like spinach," said the 7-year-old from Baltimore, who instead opted for a clump of pink cotton candy. The fried crickets were about the only thing Justin wasn't curious about at the center's second Bugfest. Like most of the children who attended the free event, he is fascinated by animals, insects in particular.

They wore balloon hats, moon-bounced, slurped on snowballs, ate piles of cotton candy, watched ducks and stared at 10,000 pinwheels glittering atop Federal Hill. About 1,000 people attended the Family Fun Fair yesterday, a free event designed to support families and give them activity ideas as the long, hot, school-less, potentially challenging days of summer descend. The day was organized by the Family Tree, a nonprofit dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect by offering classes and other assistance to parents and kids.

Call it better drinking through chemistry. Last Saturday night at Ixia, molecular mixologist Tom Cusack chilled mojitos and beer with liquid nitrogen. Fog streamed down glasses and bottles onto the bar, and patrons slurped shots without glasses. Baltimore isn't known for setting nightlife trends. But with Cusack behind the bar, that might change. The 23-year-old Cusack (not related to the actors, by the way) works in neurobiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital during the day and tends bar at Ixia Friday and Saturday nights.

You can tell it's Easter in Brooklyn Park when a Rodney Dangerfield impersonator is on stage telling bad jokes about his doctor and Krazy Glue. Or when grown men dressed as Batman, Superman and Spider-Man are on a balcony dancing to rap music and Jimmy Buffett tunes. Hundreds of people turned out yesterday for the annual Easter celebration at the Club 4100 restaurant in Brooklyn Park, just as they have for the last 42 years. Most years, Baltimore Colts legend Johnny Unitas shows up and throws a few footballs, but he didn't make it this year because he was out of town, organizers say. But this Easter party is not about Johnny or Rodney, loyalists say, though the two have become fixtures over the years.

They enter with equal parts dread and loathing, clutching envelopes and folders, random bills and bits of proof. This is Who I Am. This is Where I Live. If ever there were an exercise in patience, then surely this it where it unfolds, in a drab building known as the Motor Vehicle Administration, where time stretches like a wad of cotton candy - minutes into an hour, one hour into two, or three or more ...

He sang the national anthem for a roaring crowd of about 40,000, shook the hand of Maryland's ice princess and cheered the Orioles on to a game-winning home run. An 8-year-old could not ask for a better night or for a better introduction to major league baseball. Christopher A. Nusbaum, who has been blind since birth, long ago mastered "The Star-Spangled Banner" - he has been singing it in public for at least three years, he said. But singing for the Orioles at a game where Kimmie Meissner threw out the first pitch and the home team won created a winning combination.

State Sen. Michael J. Wagner got his just desserts yesterday at the hands of a gleeful 8-year-old with a pie in his hand and payback on his mind.The Ferndale senator had made the ultimate mistake. The second-grade class at Overlook Elementary had spent months planning and planting a "forest" behind the Linthicum school.The culmination of their work -- part of a social studies lesson on the importance of community involvement -- was to be a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony with Mr. Wagner as the guest of honor.

We went to the ballpark yesterday looking for Anna Benson, because, well, is there any other reason to go to the ballpark this year? Benson, of course, is the wife of new Orioles pitcher Kris Benson, and she's possibly a bigger star than her husband. She was recently on the cover of FHM magazine (wearing an Orioles cap and not much else), and she hopes to star in a reality TV show called Anna on Top. Her arrival in Baltimore promised to give the Orioles just the jolt they needed. But last week, as spring training was wrapping up and the team was heading north, Anna filed for divorce.
