Columbia, Maryland is a great place to call home. Columbia, Maryland is a planned community in the heart of Howard County that consists of ten self contained villages. It is considered a suburb of Baltimore and somewhat close enough to Washington DC to call Columbia home and commute on a daily basis. Located close to Interstate 95 and serviced by The MARC train these Metro areas are easily accessed. Opened in 1967, Columbia was designed to not only eliminate the inconveniences of then-current subdivision design, but also eliminate racial, religious, and income segregation.  Columbia offers great schools, community activities, parks, rec centers and shopping. In the center of Columbia is the Columbia Mall and it does seem that all roads lead there.      2010    2009    % Change Total Sol...

A desperate need for a mid-Winter pedicure brought me into The Hair Connoisseur's Salon & Spa in Columbia, MD yesterday.  My experience with the nail technician (Yanique) was very relaxing and I plan to make a pedicure with her my regular treat to myself.  Before leaving, I made an appointment for next week to have my hair done. From the moment you enter the salon you are welcomed by the pleasant staff and inviting decor.  Salon owner and stylist, Tamara Taylor, greeted me (and every other person who entered) personally and thanked us for our patronage. Tamara is well known in the area for her precision hair cuts, customized color, and her impeccable attention to detail.  Tamara Taylor's work has been featured in Essence, Vibe Magazing, on Regis & Kelly, TV One, The Montel Williams Show...
