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...

I've attended twice, once on opening night and this past weekend.   Here is an excerpt of the review By Amanda Gunther/TheatreBloom"Directed by Jimi Kinstle with Musical Direction by Mari Hill, with live on-stage orchestrations by Erica Rome and Stephen Deininger, this one-of-a-kind cobbled-together musical of love, loss, and expectations vs reality, is a classic, of sorts, and well-performed upon the Vagabond Players' stage.""Serving as hidden characters, though in plain view on the stage are the live musicians— Erica Rome as the pianist and Stephen Deininger as the harpist...Rome and Deininger provide the lively, serene, and haunting music that accompanies the songs during this performance and the way the...

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...

Buying Your First Home in BaltimoreI have a conversation with my son's girlfriend the other evening.  They have been talking about moving in together.  She currently pays about $1600 per month in rent.  Both have good credit but they are cash poor and live paycheck to paycheck.  I have been talking to my son about buying a home rather than paying rent.  She expressed concern about where they would come up with their down payment.  First off you don't need to have 20% of the purchase price as a down payment.We currently live in Catonsville right on the border of Baltimore County and Baltimore City.  If they were to look at homes 2 blocks down the street from us they would be in Baltimore City.I recently wrote an offer on a really nice townhome priced at $178,500.  The down payment on tha...
