montgomery county maryland: Spending Some Green, Making Some Green, and Keeping Mother Earth Green . . . - 04/21/09 05:09 PM
Seems I have been green longer than I care to admit.  Ever since I was a kid, like 40, there I said it, years ago.  My mom is from Germany and they have always recycled and reused as part of their culture for years before we showed up. 
We never wasted anything, brown grocery bags, they were our trash bag, when they changed to the plastic kind, ditto. If we ever got food in those plastic containers, we reused them to save leftovers.  We always found at least a second use for everything.  Thanks Mom, who knew you were so cool??
We had … (17 comments)

montgomery county maryland: Social Networking and The Montgomery County Women's Council of REALTORS(R) - 04/16/09 04:11 PM
I was asked by the Montgomery County Maryland Women's Council of REALTORS® to give a presentation about what I have learned about social networking in the last couple of years.  I was honored to be asked and so I went last Wednesday to see the members of WCR
I put my presentation together, keeping it simple for myself and for the members to not be overwhelmed by the massive amount of information that goes along with social networking.   I thought Blogs, Social Networks and Micro-blogging would be the a good place to start. I am  far from being and über geek or … (14 comments)

montgomery county maryland: Our Prices In The DC Suburbs of Maryland Are Back To "NORMAL!!" - 02/27/09 09:39 AM

Do you think we will ever learn?  I don't.  You know, when something is going gang busters, you throw money at it and you make money that blows your mind and makes you laugh all at the same time?
I say STOP all the doom and gloom on television.  They have no clue what they are talking about.  Yes, are the banks screwed up, sorry but most of that is their own fault.  Well, this post is not about that and I am not going there right now.  We are at a normal price range for the most part in … (6 comments)

montgomery county maryland: Instant Emergency Information In Gaithersburg - 11/08/08 03:08 PM
These days we all want instant everything.  From our Internet connections, to our cell phones connecting right away and answers to our questions should have been five minutes ago.  We are in tune and on the move. 
But what about an emergency?  Bad weather?  Storms coming, you know we have had a few tornadoes in this area in the last few years.  They are so rare, but if one was coming wouldn't you want to know?  How about a tree down blocking a road after a storm.  What about a water main break that stops traffic.  These are inconveniences, but wouldn't you … (11 comments)

montgomery county maryland: Add Washington DC to your "Bucket List" - 03/30/08 07:44 AM
 
If you have never spent time in Our Nation's Capital as a tourist, you need to add it to your bucket list.  I live in the DC suburbs of Montgomery County Maryland and I admit that I do not visit the City nearly enough.
Yesterday, Saturday, was the start of the Cherry Blossom Festival.  It one of the most beautiful sites you can see.  It started when the Japanese gave the United States the gift of the Cherry Blossoms and they were planted around the Tidal Basin.  Several years later the Parks service has planted many more and several different species. If you didn't make … (19 comments)

montgomery county maryland: @#$%& I did it again! - 02/07/08 09:56 AM
Okay, you would think after two times I would get it through my thick head, but no.  A little background.  Here in Montgomery County Maryland we are some sort of a test site for these speed cameras?  I would think our county is quite happy with their investment.  In about 6 months time they have generated around $2,000,000.00, yes million, in revenue for our county. I think I have personally been one of the major contributers to their test!!  A study seems to show that they do increase fender benders because everyone is so freaked out to not get a ticket they … (21 comments)
