Maryland Housing Statistics, June, 2020 This report was provided by Ann Marie Clements. Maryland’s housing market in June rebounded significantly from the drop in sales seen in April and May. June witnessed 8,259 total units sold. While this represents a drop of -6.8 percent from June 2019, it marks a 36.4 percent increase from the total units sold in May. Inventory, however, remains a challenge.“While inventory continues to tighten, June’s housing statistics demonstrate that the housing market is truly contributing to this economy,” said Maryland REALTORS® President John A. Harrison. “From May to June, average sales prices rose from $365,945 to 377,395. Median sales prices rose as well from $320,000 in May to $330,000 in June.”According to Harrison, available inventory remains the bigg...

We had never hiked Black Crater on McKenzie Summit until this month and it turned out to be a wonderful experience.  Despite the burned area at the beginning of the hike, the result of the 2017 24,000 acre Millie Fire, the 7 miles up and back was easy enough, although steep in sections, and signs of new life in the burned forest was interesting to see.  However, the reason people hike Black Crater is for the views at the top. On our day, July 13, 2020, eight Cascade Mountains were visible. We had to get through about 1/2 mile of snow to reach the top, but once the trail opened up, the stunning vistas of Broken Top, the Three Sisters, Mt. Washington, 3 Fingered Jack, Jefferson and Mt. Hood were all there and we enjoyed seeing them from this wonderful vantage point. Trail books note the h...

When we committed to living a healthy lifestyle, it became quite clear to me that dancing needed to be a part of that commitment.  Luckily, here in the Sarasota and neighboring communities like Lakewood Ranch, there are plenty of oppotunities to learn all the greatest dance moves!I know we have hundreds of outdoor activities and gorgeous beaches and lots of water activities, but there is something about moving in sync to the rythmn of the music and becoming one with the dance and each other, that is so satisfying and so much fun!We love living at Esplanade Golf & Country Club in Lakewood Ranch, Florida.  We've worked hard to earn this time now for all the fitness activities we enjoy and the gorgeous home we live in that is in an incredible community.  And, we've earned the right to enjo...

Folks moving to Arizona from other parts of the country often ask, "What is the difference between Tucson and Phoenix"? Now that's a pretty broad question, and one that could be addressed with PAGES of info, but I'll see what I can summarize in a few hundred words, in my own humble opinion.1. Please know I'm biased. I live in Tucson. I love Tucson. I do not intend to LEAVE Tucson voluntarily. :)To me, Tucson is a great big sprawling town. A city where so many of us are from somewhere else. A place where you can hear "howdy ma'am" and see a cowboy hat in the most expensive amenities in the area. It has a laid-back flavor.Phoenix is a CITY. I.E. The fifth largest in the United States! According to https://worldpopulationreview.com/ metropolitan Phoenix consists of 517.7 square miles hous...

I'm a bit slow in getting this post up but there was no way I was going to let this achievement go by without the proper accolades to Timmothy Timm. Timmothy is an amazing young man who despite being autistic archived a 4.0 grade average, has written and illustrated two books (currently in circulation), and is an excellent musician.Making me even prouder is that Timmothy is very respectful, extremely helpful, and is even becoming involved in the leadership activities of our faith.Congratulations once again to Timmothy for graduating at the top of his class of 500 and for his acceptance into Minot State University Arts Program this coming Fall.

  Yesterday was a GREAT day! I got up very early and walked around the neighborhood Square before hours of business operation. Not expecting anything to open, I eventually saw the light go on at the Coffee Shop. It read OPEN! My mind said no, don't go. My feet walked to my car. My hands went inside my purse and took out a Credit Card. Once Again, my mind said No. But my body turned and I went to the Coffee Shop. The sign said, come in to order. Oh, the smell of coffee was delicious. For the first time since March, I got my coffee and sat down on a bench near the Gazebo with my keys, diary, and credit card in hand to write in my diary. It was a nice morning. Later that day, I realized, I didn't have my Credit Card! Oh no! I thought to myself, my Credit Card is Missing. Several hours had ...

The last two days, our Carpinteria beach has been filled with kids of all ages learning lifeguard skills. Every day this week, they will learn different aspects of water safety. It has been a joy watching them learn. They are divided in age groups.  They all wear the red shorts/swimsuits which identify them.  There is a teacher for each group.  Pictured above is the kayak lesson.  The red kayaks are the teachers.   We loved watching the proud moms taking photos, and the smiles on the children's faces...and before you ask proper precautions were observed..
