Okay. We all know that all things underwater hold some kind of strange fascination. So, we make the trek to the best place within driving distance to see the underwater, the Baltimore Aquarium. You can find out more about the Baltimore Aquarium at

Australian Freshwater Crocodile. As with all crocks, the depth and temperature of the nests where eggs are laid determines the gender of the babies.

Giant Amazon River Turtle. In the wild, they eat only during the rainy season when the Amazon River floods. Weird.

Parrotfish. Parrotfishes graze on coral, and have the ability to change genders.

A really cool fish that looks like a rock. Sorry, I don't remember it's name. If you do, let me know!

Coral reefs. The second picture (sorry about the quality) shows some great marine worms.

Another great place to see fish:

The New Regime

If we don't have some nice muscles in 4-6 weeks, one of the following has occurred:

-They lied in the infomercial.

-We were so exhausted after the fifty hours it took to assemble this complicated thing (which came in six seperate boxes, by the way) that we slept for 4-6 weeks.*

-This has turned into a clothing rack.

* I helped by sitting on the bed and staying out of the way. I find that is the most effective way for me to provide assistance whenever anything requiring assembly, tools, or comes with an instruction book is concerned. But watching is exhausting in itself.

Book Report: Marley & Me by John Grogan

This book is a must read for everyone who owns a dog. Actually, for anyone who owns a pet, has ever owned a pet, or knows someone who owns a pet. Grogan tells his life story through the true antics of his dog, "life and love with the world's worst dog".
Yes, this book explains a lot. It makes you love the world's worst dog, and you never question why Grogan loves this dog. And I love Grogan's ability to make you laugh and cry on the same page.
I started reading this book thinking, no way he could own the world's worst dog, because we do!!
We have the dog who ate a hole in the drywall in the bathroom. She has single-handedly destroyed more comforters than I can remember. She ate her muzzle. She barks and growls and scares the bejeezes out of people. She eats the living room rugs, gets into the trash and acts like she's starving to death whenever company comes. She has peed on the floor, on my pillow and on my foot.
But she's still my baby.

Janka, who is now not the world's worst dog.

And the Nats actually won! But is was against the O's, after all.

The Official Paperwork

Ahh, papers, papers. And now I suppose it's official...
After one and a half hours at the Social Security Office.
After one hour at the Department of Motor Vehicles.
After thirty minutes at the bank.
And after endless phone calls, faxes and mailings.

We now have the same last name.

El Squid Roe (best drinks)
Margaritavilla (best eats)

The LinLos Wedding

That's right, we did it.

The deed has been done.

We've been hitched.

For better or for worse.

After six years of dating, five and a half years of living in sin, two dogs, three frogs, two lizards and an entire family tree of fish.

Welcome to the creation of the LinLos, The Work In Progress.
