LOVETTSVILLE VIRGINIA NOV. 26, 2011 - You have to catch it at almost the right second!!  As soon as the sun gets over the horizon, the color will be gone and it will be just another beautiful clear Virginia fall morning. YES!  I happened to glance out my back window this a.m. and saw the morning sky ablaze with the morning sunrise.  It was 6:50 a.m.  My house faces north so the morning sunrise is almost directly south.  Just look! Official sunrise, when the sun is visible, is a bit later.  However, the actual sunrise doesn't have the spectacular color of the "pre-sunrise" view.  Courtesy, Lenn Harley, Broker, Homefinders.com, 800-711-7988.

11-11-11 Day in Loudoun County:  The Town of Lovettsville will hold its 5th annual Veteran's Day ceremony at 11:00 am Friday, November 11, 2011, to honor all of those who have served in the armed forces.   This year is particularly special, however, as the Town will dedicate the new Lovettsville Veterans Memorial in the town square.  The Town plans to pave the Memorial with custom engraved pavers which can be purchased by the public.  Each paver, including engraving and installation, costs $250.  This is a wonderful opportunity to honor your veterans in your home town and home county. Check the Lovesttsville Town website for the engraver order form. While observing the more important aspect of November 11 this year, why not pause to recognize the rare calendar event that will happen at ...

Festivities continue Sunday with a pancake breakfast and a community church service, then music in the tent in the afternoon. Oktoberfest wraps up Monday with a scramble golf tournament. The festival is FREE to the public and FREE parking is provided. Food, Beer and Crafts are available for purchase.

THE FIRST SIGN OF FALL IN LOVETTSVILLE VIRGINIA.  SEPTEMBER 18, 2011. Just across the road from my home in Northwestern Loudoun County, the first sign of color I've noticed. The view from my front stoop shows an area with lots of green but gradually changing to some orange. LOVETTSVILLE doesn't generally have very severe winters.  We've been in a cold phase for about 4 years now (with about 3 more to go).   The high temperature averages about 43 degrees during the day and about 20 at night.  Not bad. Enjoy the photos and if you're looking for a wonderful place to buy a home a live, Lovettsville is a very friendly town.  LOOK WHAT COMING! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WHEN EXPERIENCE COUNTS, home buyers will enjoy our many years of serving home buyers...

I must give credit here to my sister, Joan.  She took this with her IPhone camera and I messed with it a bit in I-Photo. This one illustrates something:  You can never ever tell what will happen with land that is adjacent to any house you buy.  A few months ago, this was a vacant field with tall grass out in Loudoun County.  Then the owners decided to lease it as pasture land, and these beautiful creatures showed up.  I'm told they are show cattle.  The last time I showed up with my own camera, they were way on the other side of the land and I didn't get to see them at all. And, as always, good fences make good neighbors!

On  Saturday and Sunday afternoons, many people who live in and near Washington, DC head for Virginia wine country to check out what some of our local growers are producing.  Today, we headed out to Sunset Hills Vinyard near Lovetsville, Virginia. This fellow greeted us at the door with a great big smile.  I felt that was a good sign. We sampled some wonderful wines - many that had won prizes at state wide and national competitions.  The today's tasting included three white wines, three reds and a dessert wind.  I think my favorite was a 2009 Merlot - something that I will admit even though Merlot may be considered to be somewhat unchic by many of my wine snob briends.  But a highlight was a tour of the cellar with Diane Canney, who with her husband, Mike, have transformed a banrupt far...

WHITE TAIL DEER IN LOVETTSVILLE VIRGINIA - FROM MY OFFICE WINDOW I've known for some time that about a small herd of White Tail Deer live in the wooded area across the raod from my home.  Now that the leaves are down, I see them moving around quite often during the day.  Also, since it's Deer hunting season, the Deer move around quite a bit more. White Tail Deer are overpopulated in Loudoun County with about 5.8 Deer per acre.  The Deer population throughout the commonwealth is only 2.4 Deer per acre.  THAT'S LIFE IN THE COUNTRY FOLKS.   Courtesy, Lenn Harley, Broker, Homefinders.com, 800-711-7988.   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A MESSAGE FOR HOME BUYERS IN LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA  HOMEFINDERS VIDEO  For a tour of homes in your location of choice in Loudou...

I took this photo last weekend in Lovettsville, Virginia.  It was from the deck of a house I sold a few months ago, and it was nothing like what I see from the decks of homes that I sell in DC.  And you know?  I could live here! If you are planning a move to the Washington, DC area, I can help!  Call, email or text me at: housepat@mac.com 202 549-5167 Licensed in DC, MD & VA

VDOT, Virginia Department of Transportation Comes Through Again.  Potholes Gone. When you live on an unpaved rural road, road maintenance is important.  I love living in the country and I am fine with the gravel road ways.  However, from time to time, the potholes are a challenge at best.  I drive a 4Runner and can navigate these barriers fine, but many in my area drive more sporty vehicles and really must crawl these potholes, or take the long way out where the road is usually not any better.  THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION does a good job of maintaining the road in front of my home.   How do they know when a road is in need of maintenance?? WE HAVE A SPECIAL TELEPHONE NUMBER to call to request road maintenance, 800-FOR-ROAD.  How easy can it get and the call is handled by A...
