The LoxMoney, Power & Respect (Bad Boy/Arista 73015)At first glance, the Lox would seem to be a classic case of "it's who you know that matters." After making cameos on both the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Life After Death" and Puff Daddy and the Family's "No Way Out" and touring with Puff Daddy, the trio was on its way to stardom even before its debut hit the streets.But even if the Lox owes its initial success to that association with Puffy and Biggie, the credit for "Money, Power & Respect" belongs with the group itself.

There are some items that even small families or couples might consider buying in bulk, provided they have some storage space. It always makes sense to buy the stuff that takes up a lot of real estate in the grocery cart: toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, napkins. If you are a young parent, add diapers and juice boxes to this list. If you are older, add oatmeal. It's the only thing you're allowed to eat in large quantities. Something that I don't recommend buying in bulk is Nova Scotia lox. I don't really know what possessed me to pick up the package at Costco.

What are the differences between smoked salmon, Nova Scotia salmon, lox and gravlax? All of these foods are examples of preserved, or cured, salmon. You could call salmon "the ham of the sea" because, as with the hind leg of the pig, this fatty, flavorful fish has been subject to all manner of preservation methods. Lox is simply salmon that has been soaked in brine. The result is, predictably, very salty. "Belly lox" refers to the trimmed midsection of the fish, the fattiest part. Lox, whose name derives from "laks," the word for salmon in German and Yiddish, is not for the faint of heart, though it stands up admirably to a bit of cream cheese.

If only there were gas pumps on Mars. That is the wishful thinking NASA is doing now as it contemplates sending humans to the Red Planet, as directed by President Bush. NASA is considering proposals submitted last month from a handful of companies for a spacecraft propulsion system that could refuel on Mars and other planets. Some of the companies that submitted bids include Alliant Techsystems Inc. and Northrop Grumman Corp., which both employ hundreds of people in Maryland.

On a hot, humid day, Caron Dale, lead singer of Lox & Vodka, danced in a circle to klezmer music with residents who came to the Columbia Town Center lakefront by the hundreds to celebrate diverse cultures. After the band finished its performance, she noted that "the people who were here were diehards ... exactly the audience we were looking for." She described klezmer as "upbeat" and "happy" dance music typically sung in Yiddish. It was the band's first appearance at the Columbia Association's annual International Day festival.

The first Bagel Bin & Deli opened more than 20 years ago in Columbia's Wilde Lake area. Today there are eight of the restaurants scattered around Howard, Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties. The Bagel Bins sell excellent bagels that are crusty and chewy - two fine attributes, in my opinion. You can get any number of sandwiches made with the bagels, or bread or croissants. The restaurants also offer a limited number of breakfast dishes, as well as the usual assortment of espresso and other coffee drinks.

Hanukkah traditionally means eight nights of candles, gift-giving and lots of my favorite comfort foods. It has always been my favorite Jewish holiday. Especially now, since I share the tradition of Hanukkah with my husband and our children.The most memorable parties were spent with my family at my grandmother's house. Of course, when I was a child, my eyes would light up at the sight of the gifts. I can still remember the piles and piles of freshly fried latkes, the giant bowls of applesauce and sour cream and lots of gold-wrapped chocolate coins, otherwise known as Hanukkah gelt.

With tourism way down in England because of foot-and-mouth disease, the 14 sea lions at West Midlands Safari Park in London haven't been called upon to perform many aquatic shows. Zookeeper Peter Montague reckoned the creatures were getting fat and lazy, so he set up an exercise regimen of sorts: He started coaching them to play soccer. "It's amazing to watch," he said. "Their ball control is second to none. Their favorite trick is to flip it up about eight feet in the air with their tails and then use their heads to nod it into the net. "When they score, they make an almighty grunt.

THE bagel, lox and cream cheese sandwich is part of the classic Sunday morning breakfast or brunch offered by Jewish delicatessens. They go together. You can't talk about one without the other.*The Bagel: These days there are dozens of different kinds of bagels -- cinnamon, salt, poppy seed -- even blueberry. Purists decry all but the plain. Most of the bagels you get in the delis are baked elsewhere and delivered fresh daily; only a few delis bake their own.*In The Beginning, there were the famous delis of Lombard Street (between Central Avenue and the Fallsway)
