   When me and my good friend took his German bulldog (I think that is the dog breed)for dog grooming at the PETCO Store in 4500 Mitchellville Rd. Bowie MD 20716. 301-352-7286 Monday-Saturday 9am-9pm; Sunday 10am-6pm, . Here he is in this Youtube Video. How come it hasn't gone Viral yet? LOL! I found out about the Howl-O-Ween at PETCO Stores. Who said Halloween is just for kids? Dogs can get in on the act too. Stop by your local neighborhood PETCO Store Trick or Treat Bar to pick up a spooky treat for your dog.                                                  You can also tell them about your best pets Halloween costume at www.petco.com/contest to win prizes! Scare up some fun at their in store Pet Costume Contest. Ask an associate for details. Have a great weekend everyone.

How big kids can celebrate Halloween without leaving Bowie.   Witness the chaos of a research project gone horribly wrong this weekend, as you explore the extremely haunted house at Bowie Baysox Stadium on Route 301.  Gates and the box office will open at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Lines will form on the concourse level for tours running from sundown until 11 p.m.  It's all indoors on the upper deck level of the stadium, so no need to worry about rain, but dress for cooler temperatures. Tulip Gulch Productions has teamed with the Bowie Baysox to create the most intense haunted house you've ever seen, "The Patuxent Research Lab," featuring gobs of special effects, props, and live actors.  It promises to be VERY scary!  (Lots of screaming coming from in there.)

The long awaited Wegmans is now open in the Woodmore shopping center in Bowie, MD. I hate to admit that I have never been to a Wegmans.  However, I am excited as all the other local residents to check out what the store has to offer. Wegmans features regular grocery store items, club store prices for bulk items, seasoned meats ready to cook as well as ready made meals for nights you don't want to cook. The new Wegmans is located just off Exit 17 of I-95 in Prince George's County, MD   See you there!

Tomorrow morning at 7am Wegman's will open their first store in Prince George's County at the new Woodmore Town Center right of 202. The Wegman's store will be the anchor of this newest development that also host Costco, Best Buy (which is already open) and JC Penny coming Feb. 2011. Wegman's is comparable to Whole Foods. It is known as a high end grocery that offers a sushi bar, many delicious prepared or cooked to order meals, & sometimes movie theathers on the second level and much more. There are only 7 in the metro according to the Washington Post. Hope to see you there.

Maryland: Governor's Race: Ehrlich Pledges to Cut Education We all know the Republican talking points: cut taxes; reduce spending; fiscal responsibility; and so on. On the surface these sound good, but how one goes about the details of implementing these higher level goals is what is more important. The State of Maryland is known for having one of the best public education systems, and by many independent reports the number one system, in the country. It is no accident that it has achieved that position.  It took hard work implementing the proper systems and it required proper funding to make it happen. One of the key reasons that businesses choose to move to Maryland is the education of its citizens. It would be a crucial mistake to let this strength slide backwards. However, Robert Eh...

The Neo-traditional floor plan provides a great alternative to either a large single family home or a traditional townhome. Neo-traditional homes usually offer a smaller lot-size and a rear entry garage.  These homes are perfect for people that want the size and floor plans of single family homes but who want to minimize their exterior maintenance responsibilities. Neo-traditional homes are also called Village homes or Carriage Homes. These homes have begun to catch on in Prince George's County as they offer the luxury features and space that today's buyers want but at a more affordable price. Two communities offering this Neo-traditional single family are:   Balk Hill Village in Bowie    Balk Hill Village is located close to 495, Largo Town Center, Fed-Ex Field.  It's convenient locati...

Freebie of the Day-Screenr.com. www.Screenr.com is a free tool that I stumbled across on the Internet while I was watching a webinar by those two dudes-Josh Schoenly & Ryan Hartman webinar on how to get leads with Craiglist. Anyway I am going to be concise and to the point. www.screenr.com is a web-based recorder that you can record on your PC or MAC. You don't have to download anything which is great. It gives us real estate agents more space on our computer to use for other things if you know what I mean. Anyway check out how this PG County MD Real Estate Agent used it in this one minute video on the $7500 home buyer grants for home buyers who are looking to buy PG County MD Homes for sale.

This morning I was watching the Today Show and they were discussing the death of the McMansion.  According to their resident real estate expert buyers no longer wanted larger homes.  She even indicated that there was a trend towards a tiny home (approximately 70 square feet). These segments often get on my nerves because they make sweeping generalizations about the market as though they are truths everywhere.  Here in Maryland, I work with many first time buyers interested in buying homes under $150,000 and I have yet to find someone who would even consider a 70 square feet home. In my opionion, buyers are mostly buying smaller homes because that's what they can afford.  When I go out with buyers I often hear them complaining about the size of the bedrooms and wishing they were bigger. ...

   THE REAL ESTATE FARMER-I've done real estate before I became a Real Estate Agent. Yesterday I wrote a blog called   THE REAL ESTATE FARMER-Where did the name come from?. I won't talk about it,I'll let you read it yourself. But while writing the blog,I realized something. In a way I have done real estate before I became a Real Estate Agent. While working on my father's farm,me along with a couple of my cousins would go to the lake and go fetch water. The water would be used to mix the dirt that will make the bricks to built the small houses. The houses would be where we would stay to either first eat breakfast before we began working on the farm,lunch/break(Some of my brothers and family members slept on the farm once)and to stay in case in started raining. I guess my old man said why...

East Moon Asian Bistro in Bowie is a wonderful restaurant that features an asian fusion menu.  Whether you like traditional Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, or Japanese food there is something on the menu for you.  The menu features entrees representing the different Asian styles of cooking as well as fresh sushi.  The Vietnamese Egg Rolls are my personal favorite appetizer. The prices as East Moon Asian Bistro are not as inexpensive as your neighborhood carry-out but well worth the difference.   Located off Rt 450 in Bowie, East Moon Asian Bistro is convenient to any Bowie community but is especially accessible to Fairwood & Woodmore North.   If you are in the mood for excellent Asian food and are in the Bowie area, drop in and give East Moon Asian Bistro a try.  You will not be disappointed...

If you are like me you have things that you are no longer using that someone else could benefit from.  Usually, I pile them up in the garage until a charity calls and then I happily leave them outside my home for pick-up.  I've had several things for months now and no one has called (of course, i'm too lazy to take them myself).   Today I stumbled on a service called Good Donor which allows you to schedule a pick-up online at your convenience.  You can either schedule a pick-up by date or by charity.   I have scheudled a pick-up through Good Donor for tomorrow to get all the stuff and the items will benefit the Lupus Foundation.   If you have those unused items sitting around scheudle a pick-up with Good Donor today!
