Missy and Rob Altenburg and their 9-year-old triplets laughed last Sunday when Monet, their 15-month-old bearded dragon, jumped up to snag an unsuspecting firefly. The family often took Monet outside in the afternoons for some fresh air and exercise in their Jarrettsville yard, and joked about glowing poop after his snack. Their amusement turned to sorrow the next day, however, when Monet began shaking and throwing up. A quick call to the vet produced horror: Monet's body was filled with toxins from the fireflies, and there was nothing anyone could do. At 3 p.m., he died.

For 34 years, Brass Balls Saloon has been a go-to location on Ocean City 's boardwalk, providing live entertainment daily and a whole lot of hilarious "balls"-related puns. To no one's surprise, and much to my 13-year-old's sense of humor's delight, the cocktail menu is no different. While widely known for introducing the Rum Runner to the Mid-Atlantic via Key West, Fla., alongside nearby Seacrets , Brass Balls Saloon's vast party cocktail menu doesn't disappoint with its summery blends.

Intriguing title aside, the mythical fire-breathers in "There Be Dragons" are strictly metaphorical. In both ambition and approach, "Dragons" echoes Roland Joffe's career-defining early work as he brings sweeping production values to overtly Christian subject matter, tracking the life of Opus Dei founder and modern-day Catholic saint Josemaria Escriva against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War. Overlong and unnecessarily burdened by...

The Firefly Music Festival is not for everyone, especially for those that find much of the following unappealing: Multiple days of camping, ironic tank-tops, drinking games, Grateful Dead tapestries, dust, drug dealers, bugs, hydration packs, portable toilets, 30-minute treks from camp to the festival grounds, high-waisted shorts, flying glow sticks and bad tanlines. For the rest of us - and there were approximately 80,000 music fans in attendance, according to Billboard - the four-day music festival that took place from Thursday to Sunday in Dover, Del., was an unofficial kickoff to summer celebration that was thrilling and - if we're being honest - draining.

Sea Dragons: Predators of the Prehistoric Oceans, by Richard Ellis. University Press of Kansas. 312 pages. $29.95. This is a wonderful, complicated grab bag of a book. Sea Dragons: Predators of the Prehistoric Oceans will appeal to paleontologists and to people who never saw a taxonomic puzzle they could resist. It may attract casual readers, who should feel free to dip in, as it were. Here and there, it also might entice the child or teen-ager who, by contemplating the book's murky wonders, may be drawn into the exhilarating exploration of the natural world.

Sean Scott wears many hats as the director and head coach of the Baltimore Dragon Boat Club. The 42-year-old construction superintendent witnessed a club of 12 recreational dragon boaters grow to over 70 members since 2008. The participants range from 11-year-olds to members older than 80, and the BDBC also includes a breast cancer survivor team and a corporate team-building program. Scott, who was born in Oregon and now lives in Woodberry, said that Baltimore drew him to dragon boats through the yearly Catholic Charities dragon boat festival.

If it's the Colonial Athletic Association women's lacrosse tournament, it must be a one-goal win for Towson. For the third straight time, the Tigers nipped an opponent by one goal in a CAA postseason game, edging Drexel for an 8-7 comeback victory Friday afternoon at the Tiger Soccer Complex. Last season, Towson beat Drexel, 12-11, in the semifinal and went on to slip past James Madison, 8-7, for the championship. This time, the top-seeded Tigers (9-8) scored twice in the final three minutes and their defense did the rest to ensure the chance to defend their title Sunday at 1 p.m. against Hofstra.

  “The revenge you want will be yours in time,” - Varys  All hail, Daenerys Targaryen: Queen of dragons, multilingualism and the double-cross. “Game of Thrones” is at its best when one of its major, fan-favorite characters (I call them the Big Four: Dany, Arya, Jon and Tyrion) has a big scene, and it doesn't get too much bigger than Sunday's move by Daenerys. The writers dedicated the last 10 or so minutes of the episode solely to Daenerys and it paid off with the show's most successful moment of television so far this season.

Recently on WWE.com, Paul Heyman listed 10 “Paul Heyman Guys.” It seems to be the cool thing these days, in this exclusive club of individuals that associate themselves with the man known as the "Creative Rabbi," the man widely regarded as one of the best talkers and thinkers in the history of professional wrestling, the patriarch of ECW, the man who ushered in a wave of change in the wrestling landscape in the 1990s. One name that wasn't included in that list, (let's call him Paul Heyman Guy No. 11)

Whatever goes up must come down — just not always in the condition one hoped. That's the lesson Paul Warren, the 16-year-old from Maryland whose science experiment was launched into space in May, learned Friday when the materials of his project — test tubes, packing liquids and roundworms by the thousand — returned after having spent nearly seven weeks aboard the International Space Station. The experiment, he learned, had never been activated. "I don't know if I've ever been this frustrated," he said shortly after opening the box he had been waiting for since it landed in Kazakhstan on Sunday.

Team Kaya's dragon boat sped quickly past others racing along the waters of Baltimore's harbor Saturday morning, leaving other teams to wonder if it had a secret weapon. "It's that girl in the front. Look how small she is," said one man, wondering out loud if smaller team members mean a lighter, faster boat. The 17 teams competing in Saturday's event hosted by The Baltimore Dragon Boat Club at Tide Point Marina had spent weeks training for the grueling races, in which they paddle at top speed for 500 meters - at least two minutes for most boats.
