To an extent, I agree with the stance of "if you don't want to hear the music, don't live next door to Merriweather. " The fact is, however, that we don't live next door to Merriweather and we still hear the music. We live in Owen Brown, and our house is about 1.5 miles from Merriweather as the crow (or bass percussion) flies. For the entire concert season, we are definitely hearing the Merriweather merriment. We don't hear the crowds or the people, and the lyrics are definitely not distinguishable; we hear the bass and some of the music.

The forecast was for northeasterly gales and more heavy snow.Street railway companies brought out for the first time that season their big snowplows, and The Sun reported that the snow on the trolley wires caused "vivid splutters of electricity as the cars passed under them."Postmaster Warfield at the Baltimore Post Office, commenting on the volume of seasonal mail, reported that "children nowadays are as trusting as in the years gone by, and are still firm believers in the ubiquitousness and obliging disposition of the genial old soul, Kriss Kringle."

Reading Time: Two Minutes.Let's hear it for Mike Devereaux. In this day and age of hangnails on the injured list, Devo takes it in the kisser and is back the next day.Same goes for Chris Hoiles, who got beaned in Texas and didn't malinger. What are these guys, old Orioles in the tradition of John McGraw and Wilbert Robinson?The incidents remind of Sal Bando, who took Sudden Sam McDowell's heater in the jaw one night in Cleveland. Appearing in Baltimore the next day with Oakland and with the stitches of the ball still etched in his face, he trooped out to third base as if nothing had happened.

Despite a day darkened by clouds and dampened by rain, thousands of people, many dressed in red, white and blue, thronged the Inner Harbor yesterday for the city's Fourth of July Sailabration, which brought tall-masted ships from across the globe to the Baltimore Harbor. In celebration of the 150th year of Baltimore's Constellation - the Navy's last all-sail warship and the last Civil War-era naval vessel still afloat - ships from Nova Scotia, Romania, Uruguay and other foreign countries docked in the Inner Harbor and opened their decks to visitors.

It must be spring in Baltimore; Fifi has taken to the streets. The 14-foot-tall pink poodle, made with acres of fluffy pink tulle and giant blue plastic eyes, trundled through the streets of Baltimore yesterday, making at least its fourth appearance in the annual American Visionary Art Museum's annual Kinetic Sculpture Race. But the diva dog was only one eye-catching element of the event, which entices participants to construct an artistic - and often outrageous - human-powered vehicle that can cover a 15-mile course over land and sea. Animals were a popular theme this year as Fifi was joined by a giant duck, a rat, a two-headed dragon, a part man/part cockroach (dubbed "La Kafkaracha")
