News Shell 14
Once again, we gather around the News Shell for a look at what's going on in the world of merfolk and other aquatics.
Shine, the healthy living section of Yahoo, has a great article on Mermaid Linden Wolbert of California. Did you know that Mermaid Linden left her day job in 2005 to become a professional mermaid? She has never looked back! The article has a number of interesting tidbits.
As we talked about before, Mermaid Linden produces short videos for children to teach them about the ocean and sea life. Look for the Mermaid Minute videos on YouTube.
The current article also contains a link to a previous Shine article entitled, "The Mermaid Trend - Shine Tries It", which links back to this blog. You can swim in circles all day!
Underwater Egg Hunt
Friday's edition of the Dallas Morning News reported that the city of Allen, Texas would be holding an Under the Sea Easter Egg Hunt the following day. The hunt was held at the city's natatorium (swimming facility), and there were weighted eggs and floating eggs.
In my opinion, the best line of this article by Holly Warren Rusak was, "The hunt will occur in waves, with each group broken up by age".
In waves? But of course!
A coworker recently found a drawing of a mermaid that he did back in the 1986-7 time frame. Mermaids live a long time, and mermaid artwork lives even longer.
Do your random drawings end up being mermaids on a regular basis? Send me a copy!

Last year, James Cameron paid an historic solo visit to the Mariana Trench, the Earth's deepest point. A recent io9 article reports that Mr. Cameron has donated the Deepsea Challender, the submersible used in the undersea voyage, to science. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is the recipient of the donation.
Take a look at the complete article by Robert T. Gonzalez at io9.
Snow Mermaid Revisited
Last week's blog article, Spiritual Messengers, was quite popular. No doubt our Snow Mermaid, Marla, played a part in this popularity.
Mermaid Marla fans, here is another photo for you to enjoy as we start to see more and more signs of spring in the US.
Thank you, Marla, for braving the cold, and for sharing your photos with us!
Best wishes and starfishes,
