This one is fun, and while it's a stretch, this title really does make a great point.  And yes, today's nail technology is just a miracle!   Is It Time To Trim Your Nails?   Stay with me, this is going to make sense.  I've been enjoying all the New Year's posts about plans and goals. They are ver...
Here it is!  ActiveRain's own Flooring Girl, Debbie Gardner, has given us her latest with her 2017 Hardwood Flooring Trend.  I've made a few calls to Debbie looking for solutions to my own flooring problems.  She totally knows what she is talking about.  Debbie is a floor master! Hardwood Floorin...
 These are some of the direct descendants of Claude Monet's famous water lilies.  This is a photo that I took on my last trip to France, when I visited  Giverny, a lovely town north of Paris.  And it is where he painted his famous water lilies that hang in the Musée de l'Orangerie. These were mes...
I do a lot of work with buyers, and so many of them arrive for our buyer interview, well, confused!If it's on the Internet, it ain't necessarily so!  And while inventory is tight around the region, wading through all the possibilities is daunting.  Oh, and don't forget that all of those lovely ph...

Almost every year during the time the cherry blossoms are in bloom, I wake up to go down to the tidal basin for the sunrise.  And I have my favorite camera with me. Tonight, I found this photo.  I hadn't noticed how the sunlight was reflected in the water.  So I pulled it out and started to play ...
Some of my favorite inspectors are feeling they are too old to climb up shaky ladders and crawl around slippery roofs.  I recently attended an inspection where DC area home inspector, Ken Cox, found an interesting solution. It's a long sort of metal pole that has a camera on the tip of it. He the...
Crestwood is a neighborhood that I love, although I must admit to being completely biased.  I've lived here for over three decades.  The neighborhood is surrounded on three sides by Rock Creek Park, so there is access to hiking trails (for you and your dog), the Carter Baron Tennis Stadium, the s...
Woodley Park is a Washington favorite.  It's got Metro, the National Zoo, lots of restaurants, Rock Creek Park and Klingle Valley, and some beautiful homes. Most of the homes are attached, and two or three stories high.  And most were built during the early part of the last century.  If you want ...
