I awoke to the closing of the garage door. Since I am ALWAYS the first person awake in our family (at least during the week), this was a bad sign.  A quick glance at my alarm clock told me that it was 5:35 am.  Hmmm, why was my daughter leaving so early for school?

A couple of weeks ago, during the height of the buzz about Cash for Clunkers, I heard a radio broadcast  on WTOP (Washington, D.C.). In his broadcast, the announcer said that he had received many calls from people who were disparaging  the Cash For Clunkers program--calling it another 'Washington...
Once upon a time there was a lonely real estate agent. She worked from her home office. And as much as she enjoyed it, sometimes it was lonely. Every morning she checked her email, made her phone calls and reviewed her paperwork.  When clients wanted to see properties, she made appointments and s...
My husband and I went downtown (Washington D.C)  last night with some close friends to celebrate our anniversary and several birthdays that we had all celebrated between us.
