My blog covers whatever is on my mind. It travels the spectrum from Real Estate in Northern Virginia, local events, market reports, neighborhood data, business profiles and personal stories, and once in a while just some random craziness. I hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to drop a note.

I'm sure Gail's blog will be reposted over and over, but it's well worth a read from everyone.  The power of the pen is greater than many imagine.  Good for you, Gail!  Please drop by, Gail's blog and give her a little encouragement.  She'll really appreciate it.

I learned a great lesson as a rock and roll teenager that I put into practice in the past 24 hours, and it worked just as well as it did when I was 16.  When I was 16, I played guitar in a rock band, and it was a blast.  I was your typical long-haired hippie-looking musician, and I loved to play ...

What does crow actually taste like?  Hmmm, I don't know, maybe chicken.  I know, I'll ask the two arrogant agents who blew my buyers off on their recent purchase offers.  If there is one thing I've learned in life, it's that it never pays to be arrogant and condescending . I've had two back to ba...
OK, ladies, you probably know this, but there are certain things men were not designed to do.  Decades ago, I would have included vacuuming in this category, but with the advent of adjustable vacuum cleaners with more power and different height levels, it has become more like off-roading now and ...
When I first started blogging on Active Rain I was truly a blogging novice.  I had no idea what I was doing, and I'm sure it showed.  Fortunately for me, the AR family is extremely generous and helpful.  Before long, I was receiving personal emails from members encouraging me to do certain things...
