Sugar MamasThere's a little takeout place not far from my house called Sugar Mamas.  Now with a name like that, you have to know there are sweets and butter involved and you wouldn't be wrong.  A few years ago I did a stint driving for Doordash and on weekends I often picked up from Sugar Mama's but I had never eaten there.  It looked really good and it smelled divine. So, this morning we ordered breakfast from there.  If you order on the Doordash app and it's your first time ordering from Sugar Mamas you can get 30% off if you pick it up.  We ordered on the app and my son, Liam, went to pick it up.We both ordered the Belgian Waffle Platter and for $13.75 it was more than I could eat. It came with 4 small waffles, sausage (or bacon), grits (or hashbrowns - I had cheese grits and Liam ha...

When Company Comes to VisitDo you have a favorite place you like to go to when friends come to visit?  I have a small Airbnb business and from time to time my guests become friends and sometimes even clients.  This week I have a guest from Canada that is starting a new job here.  Saturday we toured Baltimore looking for long-term temporary housing for him.  It came lunch time and we needed to eat, and we were on our way to Charles Village and Remington so one of my favorite places to go that screams Baltimore is The Paper Moon Diner located on 29th.  It's a very cool place with lots to look at, the service is usually really good and Saturday was no different and the food locally sourced and made from scratch is also always good.  I  have never been disappointed.  Where's your favorite l...

Mark and Endre are hosting this month's challenge and ask us to show our Stars and Stripes flying in honor of three patriotic holidays Memorial Day, Flag Day, and The Fourth of July. There are Flags Flags Everywhere... look around, and these photos were all taken on a wonderfully busy Friday. Living in Baltimore, I thought visiting Fort McHenry was my best bet for any flag photos needed. But thenI saw my first 'sort of' flag when I was in Canton for a closing. It was on the railing.   From the nearby Flag House, I took this one from my car.   While driving on I-83, I pulled over to grab this shot of Ole Glory flying above the Maryland Flag.  And on my way through the Mt. Washington neighborhood, I saw this one on a stone home.  I saw this one flying over The Admiral's Cup on Friday even...
