It's day 843 of Covid-19 restrictions, and with each day my house seems to be getting smaller. Okay, it's really *only* been 3 weeks since the stay-at-home order was issued in Maryland, but it feels like day 843. Although I get out each day, walk or run, or hike whilst maintaining the proper dist...
A virtual shout-out to Race Pace Bicycles..  the Mini (a.k.a. my youngest daughter) adores her vintage-looking cruiser bike, and enjoys riding laps with her big sister while mom loops the parking lot. The other day though, cruising was cut short. The back wheel was acting all funky, clearly it ne...
I am incredibly grateful that Maryland State Parks and county trails remain open for walkers, hikers, runners. We are frequent visitors, there are only so many loops in a parking lot one can run! Patapsco Valley (for example) is a nice change of scenery... I much prefer hitting a trail over concr...

And if you know me and the German language, then you know that we have the best words! Long, long before Pandemic Pounds or Covid-15 became a thing, we already had a wor...
Allow me to shout it from my virtual rooftop: I am still here for you! For the time being it is no longer business as usual in Silver Spring, MD and beyond, but we are still in business. Our world has been turned upside down, but we adapt, we adjust, and we play the cards we were dealt.  Resident...
I've spent the last 2 weeks acclimating to our new normal, at home and at the office. My kids are on a Corona-schedule, and have adjusted beautifully. They miss school, the interaction with their peeps and peers, but staying connected via various electronic devices and sticking to a schedule is h...
The February 2020 housing stats for Maryland are in, and are looking really strong! There is no denying, we were (and still are at this point) in a seller's market. When the inventory levels (that is the months of active supply) drop well below 3, we consider it to be a market that clearly favors...
