rosemary hills: A Place to Learn History, Ride a Trolley—and See Santa! - 11/19/11 06:20 AM
Just outside of Chevy Chase is the National Capital Trolley Museum where history and fun meet for a very good time. A visit here takes you back to a time when the building, maintenance and operation of street cars were the focus of most of the nation’s workforce.
 
The Museum’s website states that they exist “to collect and preserve artifacts of electrical street railways and to interpret their impact upon the development of communities in the Washington DC region.“ A stroll through this wonderful museum offers lots of interesting information.

rosemary hills: Bethesda Students Put Kindness into Action - 11/12/11 11:29 AM
The kids at Bethesda's Carderock Springs Elementary School are learning more than just academics. They’ve discovered how great it is to help others.
 
It started at the beginning of October with a book called “The Lemonade Ripple: An Adventure in Philanthropy” by Paul Reichert, the father of a Carderock student. The story tells of a young girl who opens a lemonade stand to help get a new wheelchair for her friend, which creates a “lemonade ripple” that draws the whole community to help.
 
What the book did in Bethesda was to inspire students from kindergarten to the fifth grade … (0 comments)

rosemary hills: A Small Bethesda Business with a Big Impact - 11/05/11 03:55 PM
Anyone who lives here knows there’s always great stuff happening in Bethesda. Add to that list Savenia Labs, a small start-up company making a big environmental impact.
 
The company was started by John Jabara, a Bethesda resident, to provide consumers with the energy cost of operating various household appliances. A few years ago John was in the market for a coffeemaker and wanted to know not only how much energy it used, but also the long-term cost to both himself and the environment of using the different units on the market. Because this information wasn’t readily available, he started a … (2 comments)

rosemary hills: Historic and Haunted Fun in Maryland - 10/22/11 09:23 AM
Attention residents of Bethesda and the general DC, Maryland and Virginia areas: If you’re in the vicinity of Clarksburg over Halloween weekend, you may run into some very “spirited” characters. 
A book store called Novel Places—which just happens to be the site of the old Clarksburg Trading Post and the Wilson General Store of the 1950s and 60s—may be visited by the Maryland Goatman and the Snallygaster beast. These two haven’t been seen in this area since the early 20th century, but Halloween is their time for fun and an old building the perfect place to play.

Over the last ten years, Silver Spring has come into its own as a hub of music and culture in the DC Metro area, earning a designation as an official arts and entertainment district.

Bethesda and the surrounding neighborhoods have so much to offer, and now we can add a commitment to clean energy by area businesses.

The main focus of discussion was clean renewable energy, and there were some outstanding things to share.

People in the DC Metro area know the importance and value of energy conservation. Recently, seven families in Silver Spring got together to save energy—and saved themselves some money in the process.
 
It started with one local couple attending a Takoma Park meeting about energy conservation, which got them really motivated to weatherize their home. They thought it was such an important idea that they checked a neighborhood listserv and contacted their Fairview Court neighbors, inviting them to a meeting at their home to hear more.  Also attending the meeting was WeatherizeDC, a local nonprofit that helps people with home … (0 comments)

rosemary hills: ♫ The Farmers in DC, The Farmers in DC… - 08/18/11 03:33 PM
Most people associate the DC area with the White House, monuments, and thriving modern cities like Bethesda and Chevy Chase. Yet there is another personality to this area—a rural persona with farmers and landowners that is flourishing in its own right.
 
For those that want to try their hand at farming, the Montgomery Countryside Alliance now has a web site to match aspiring farmers with those who have an excess of land they want to rent, sell, or offer for use so they don’t have to mow or otherwise care for it. 
 
The site is called Land Link … (0 comments)

If you like a pretty yard, hate mowing, and live in Chevy Chase, there's a solution for both you and the environment. According to Gazette.net, the city will be the first in the area to participate in RainScapes, a pilot program to help reduce storm runoff into local streams and Chesapeake Bay by replacing grass with gardens.
The Montgomery County program is offering homeowners and businesses a rebate for getting their landscapes to absorb more water. The program is currently focusing on the county's oldest neighborhoods which don't have modern stormwater drainage systems. As one of the oldest suburbs in … (0 comments)

rosemary hills: Report Gifts of Real Estate or Face the IRS - 06/02/11 04:13 PM
If you live in Silver Spring, Rosemary Hills, DC Metro or Virginia and you've recently gifted a relative with real estate, the IRS may have its eyes on you. The Wall Street Journal reports that the government agency is fighting to use land-transfer records to discover un-reported gifts of real estate between family members.
Recent legislation has raised to $5 million the limit on how much a person can gift in a lifetime without paying a gift tax. However, a gift to one person of more than $13,000 is supposed to be reported to the IRS so that appropriate transfer taxes … (2 comments)

rosemary hills: Silver Spring Students Dig Into Learning - 05/27/11 03:31 PM
Students in Silver Spring are learning how to dish some dirt--literally.  St. Francis International School has a working garden that's tended by the students, and it's helping to teach them many different lessons according to an article on the Gazette web site.
The planting of seeds and tending to the growing flowers and vegetables are what get students interested.  From there, teachers tie in lessons such as why early civilizations sprang up near waterways. In deciding what to grow and sell to raise funds for a class trip, the eighth grade is learning math and economics. And of course there will … (0 comments)

rosemary hills: Be a Stand-Out Buyer in the DC Home Market - 05/26/11 02:41 PM
In today's housing market, the buyer has generally held all the cards. But that's beginning to change according to a recent Washington Times article which says that Bethesda, Chevy Chase and other areas are starting to see some real buyer competition. This includes even the "slow movers" such as foreclosures and short sales.
Rather than increased demand, lower inventory is creating this situation, and it's happening across a very broad range of home prices, not just the lower-priced homes. If only one or two homes are listed in a popular neighborhood, you'll likely see lots of competing offers. As I stated … (0 comments)

Silver Spring has joined Bethesda as a location that offers pay-by-cell parking.  Wheaton and Montgomery Hills will be added by this summer.
What is pay-by-cell parking?  It's the ability to use your cell phone to add time to a parking meter that is pay-by-cell ready, which is currently about 4,500 meters in Silver Spring according to the Gazette web site.
Besides the advantage of not having to carry around change for the meter, there are other bonuses. One is that you'll get a text message when your meter is about to expire so you can add time via your cell phone … (5 comments)
