Last night, I got together with a group of people who were various combinations of friends, clients and neighbors - basically members of the East Coast liberal elite, to watch the election returns.  And while we all appreciated how completely unpredictable the outcome would be, we didn't think we...
I call all dogs other than Willie the Labradoodle "Fang".  Now, I love dogs, but when I'm showing property, I am also careful when I'm around dogs I don't know when I am showing houses.  And there are two different ways a dog can present a challenge: When it's your dog:  any agent showing your ho...
This presidential campaign cycle is supposed to be historic.  And it's not that, for the first time, a major party has a woman nominee.  It's that this has been the crankiest campaign ever!But it looks like something good is going to come out of it.Judging from the early election numbers, my gues...
Fat Pete's is a barbecue place in DC's Cleveland Park, and since the last time we had an ActiveRain meetup, they have changed their recipes.  Lots of Tums!I was joined by three cool guys.  Alan Gross arrived first and we had some chili as a little appetizer.  Not wanting to appear to be a wimp, I...

The temperatures are not yet "crisp", at least not this afternoon.  But the leaves are beginning to make it look a lot like fall around here.  I took this one this afternoon in Rock Creek Park.  We still have mostly green, but gradually we're seeing the reds and yellow leaves for contrast.
Today, I carpooled with Alan Gross to the Baltimore meetup at Bare Bones.  And after a lovely lunch, Alan and I took a detour through historic Ellicott City on the way home. Neither of us had seen it since the terrible flood that swept down the main street a few months ago. And it was amazing to ...
I vote.  I don't think I've ever missed voting in a Presidential election.  And during the last few cycles, I voted early.Not only does voting early make sure that I got my vote in, but it has allowed me to do volunteer work on the real election day.  One year, I drove up to a cute town in Pennsy...
