Abbey Burger Bistro figured 300 pounds of kangaroo would be enough to last a month. But customers ordered their way through that supply in just about two weeks. Abbey 's general manager Jon Taylor general manager told me that kangaroo, currently the "meat of the month" on the restaurant's "build a burger" menu, has a sweet taste that his customers are enjoying. It's a lean meat, too. Kangaroo will advance to the regular menu, Taylor, says if he can be sure of a regular supply.

It's national hamburger month. Just trust me. I guess I better have a hamburger every day and blog about it. Ya with me? Let's get started. Have a look at this photo gallery from a few months back. Not all of them are hamburgers. Some of them are other kinds of burgers, made out of things like turkey, kangaroo and even vegetables. But a few of them are legitimately hamburgers.

SAN FRANCISCO - Not long ago, Marion Jones was a darling of the American sports scene, a powerful sprinter with explosive strides, a blur going down the track. Now she cuts a starkly different figure, a woman standing her ground against speculation about steroids and questions from anti-doping authorities. With the clock ticking down to the Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, and her ex-husband talking to investigators, Jones faces the specter of charges that could ban her from the games.

Kathy and Keith Simpson and their two children have traveled to places such as Australia, Canada, New Orleans, Detroit and Disney World (six times). They got there by jumping. The Simpson children, Scott and Amy, joined Kangaroo Kids, a precision jump-rope team in Howard County, at a young age. They quickly found success that has led them and their parents to competitions out of state. Scott is now a ninth-grader at Hammond High who plays in the school band, is on the JV soccer team and still finds time for jump-rope practices.

It could well have been Howard County's Kangaroo Kids auditioning for television's "America's Got Talent" several weeks ago instead of a rival team from the Midwest. The Colorado-based precision rope jumpers waited 10 hours to perform on the popular summer program, but errors soon set off the dreaded triple buzzers from the judges. In less than a minute, they found themselves trooping back off the stage beneath three illuminated red X's, said local coach James McCleary. He commiserated with the other team's bad fortune as if his own team had been axed.

Eduardo Cini uses his creative skills daily in his job as a professional hair stylist. Off the job, the 47-year-old native of Malta employs that innate sense of design and color in his Baltimore County home. In August 2003 Cini purchased a two-story townhouse at The Beeches, a Towson community of cedar-sided homes complete with neighborhood pool and tennis courts. The setting is almost completely surrounded by woods, and deer roam an area architecturally designed for privacy. No house faces another, either in the front or back.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA / / I went to the Sydney Fish Market to see what strange creatures I had been eating: barramundi and Balmain bugs. I found them amid an astonishing variety of seafood at one of the world's largest fish markets. Mounded on ice were more than two-dozen types of whole fish, steaks and fillets. There was smoked eel, sea urchin roe and several varieties of oysters, already shucked and displayed on the half-shell. There were tubs of calamari rings and squid tubes. And a lovely rose-colored octopus, its arms twisted to show off rows of perfect tentacles next to a sign that proclaimed "Sashimi quality."

At Oakland Mills High School on the eve of the first, a musical called Seussical was played and rehearsed. And the audience, familiar with the Seussical plot - they all liked the musical, yes, they liked it a lot. The childhood rebel's favorite Cat in the Hat acts as the emcee through a flashy, energetic production of extraordinary "thinks." Familiar Seuss characters return to wreak havoc in lands like the Jungle of Nool and the planet of Who. Before long, the imaginative elephant, Horton, hears a Who and becomes friends with the Who Mayor's son, JoJo, who often gets into trouble for his extravagant daydreams.
