I lived in Clifton for years before moving to Warrenton and enjoyed lunch regularly at Thursday's.  To my delight they opened in Gainesville.  If you haven't tried them yet ... I highly recommend them.  I didn't realize until last week that they also have Karaoke on Wednesday from 7:30 p.m. - 11:30 p.m. and Friday nights from 8:30 p.m. - 12:30 p.m.  I'm looking forward to checking out the local talent.

From my standpoint, this is  the most beautiful time of year and I encourage you to get the family together and enjoy either a day of  apple pickin', one of the areas harvest celebrations, corn maze or pumpkin patch scouring when you venture into Virginia's countryside. One of my favorites is the Graves Mountain Apple Festival in Syria .  This coming weekend is the final weekend.  It opens at 10:30a.m. and closes at 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.  Click on the following photo for a complete list of area events.

And, yes there is an end in sight.  Have you noticed that all the businesses on the  south bound lane of 29 in Gainesville have been closed and boarded up and wondered what's happening.  In August, VOT began moving utilties on Route 55 (John Marshall Highway) as part of the $198 million I-66/Rt. 29/Linton Hall Road improvement.  Actual road construction won't  begin until 2011 with scheduled completion in 2014.  The two year utility relocation and building demolition phase precedes the four-year construction project scheduled to begin in spring 2011 that will:  elevate Linton Hall Road over Route 29 elevate Route 29 over the railroad tracks construct bridges over Galleher Road and the railroad tracks at Route 29 add a lane on Route 29 from I-66 to Virginia Oaks Drive, and build new ramp...

  In 1998 the Prince William County Board of Supervisors set aside approximately 80,000 acres to be known as the Rural Crescent.  The Prince William Conservation Alliance Map highlights the covered area in black.  Generally, it is the lands south of the Route 234 corridor and west of Route 15.  Some properties - Dominion Valley, South Market and Bristoe Village were excluded. Several properties in the designated area were already developed prior to the decision to limit residential development to one home per ten acres.  Also, there is land that appears to be included in the restriction, but it had already been approved for higher density development = it could be built on with higher density than one home per ten acres. There is no firm data as to how much of the land restricted to on...

Today was a first.  I was having lunch at Pei Wei...the Asian Diner by P.F. Chang's.  Our own Gainesville, VA locaiton opened up about a month or so ago.   The service was great.  The restaurant was clean with plenty of seating.  A little noisy for a business meeting though.  Most of our business chat happened in the parking lot after our meal. I ordered the Sweet and Sour Shrimp platter.  There were more shrimp than this when it was brought to the table, but I was more hungry than I was motivated to take a picture. The shrimp were great.  The sauce was just about perfect.  And I really liked the fact that I got a lot of pineapple, green pepper and onion.     My friend ordered a vegetarian Spicy Thai Noodle Bowl with Tofu.  Of course, we shared.  While I am not a big fan of tofu, I did...

This is something that got my blood pumping today.  My Mom called and sounded panicked.  She said Route 66 had collapsed on Route 29 (a major intersection in Gainesville, VA).    She couldn't find any news about it on the local television stations. I jumped in the car, camera in hand, to see what had happened.  Nothing quite as dramatic as a collapse of a running freeway, onto a major highway.  This is an insection that is frequently closed due to construction.  What happened was a construction girder collapsed onto Route 29, from a non-open section of Route 66.  Still the photo is rather sacry looking. No one was injured in the collapse of this steel bean.  No property either.  Route 29 will be closed in both directions, on either side of this overpass.  Expect delays and detours if th...

I LOVE LIVING NEAR WHERE I WORK.  Your commute to work definitely has an impact on where you decide to live.  I was born in Washington, DC, and have lived in Northern Virginina, all of my life.  Over the years traffic has become unmanageable.  For 7 years I lived in Centreville, VA and commuted into Washington, DC.  That was a 3 hour round trip commute.  That was about my limit for commuting time. My husband loved the new construction, and the golf course communities in Haymarket, Virginia.  The homes are lovely but the road construction on 66 made commuting a nightmare.  Working in Washington, DC, was out of the question for me.  I have spoken with a number of people who handle the sometimes 4 hour round trip commute.  About a year ago I decided to set up my law practice in Gainesville...

Hummingbirds, that is....  Last year I attached a hummingbird feeder to my kitchen window, really not expecting much from it, but the birds came in droves, it was fascinating to sit a the window and watch these beautiful birds close up.... the birds suddenly disappear.....so we removed the feeder for the winter... At the beginning of the spring/summer this year, I noticed them hanging around our back window..I put the feeder back out, and yup, they returned, again in droves every day all day long it was a busy time at the watering hole...I have been noticing lately that more of them are feeding, more often...I did a little research and discovered that every year these little fellow relocate (migrate)  to South America......and they eat a lot to store up the energy to do it....I bought t...
