This is the last week for regular season for Herndon High School Boys Varsity Soccer, (of Herndon, Virginia) and they kept their 1st place position in the Concorde District. They finished the season with a 5-0 District Record and an 11-0 overall record. Last night, I had a chance to attend the Herndon High vs. Langley High game. Both teams were first place in their districts and have been battling it out all year to be seen as the 'best in the State.'  The game finished tied 2 all.  It was very exciting, with nearly as many people in attendance as is usually seen at a Herndon High Friday night football game. Next week, Herndon moves on to District Tournament Play. The scheudle hasn't yet been posted, but there are games scheduled to be played on 5/16, 5/18 and 5/20. If you can get out t...

 Feeling housebound? Want to see a bunch of rambunctious baby pigs close to home?   Take your kids on a quick nature interlude that does not take advanced logistical planning. Hop in the car and buzz on over to Kidwell Farm at Frying Pan Park in Herndon VA.                 Not only are there baby pigs, but lots of other storybook type animals who are extremely good at making all the appropriate farm animal sounds that you have been attempting to immitate while reading to your children. Come on over and let them hear what a real pig sounds like.                     This a Fairfax County Park Farm that actually plants crops and raises animals for you to see.  The live turkey that is presented to the president of the United States on Thanksgiving retires safely here.                      ...

I love to support my local small business people and so I wanted to tell you about Herndon Reston Transmission. Located at 595 Grove Street in Herndon, VA 20170, just across from the Herndon Post Office, is a wonderful family-owned place to take your vehicle. My brother recommended that I go there when I was looking for some help with an unusual problem with my car. They were so helpful, took the time to talk with me, and fixed me right up! I am the one in our family that does most of the car maintenance,  and it is has not always been easy to find shops that treat me with the respect I deserve as the one who 'understands cars' (they often think my husband should talk to them and occasionally, and reluctantly, I will have him call just to get things done). This shop was completely diffe...
