I have a weed in my backyard in Virginia Beach that comes back every year,  I keep it because it feeds the birds berries in the fall and winter.  My yard always has birds in it.  This year something is feeding on it at night.  I never see them during the day.  I suspect is the catapillars that fe...

I have been taking buyers out for years and having men wanting a "Man Cave".  You know the big hulking room you can put a home theatre in or fix the car or play pool.  Now I was reading in our local paper about a lady in Virginia Beach making a "Girl Cave". A "Girl Cave" could be something simple...

This is a repost of a post in another blog that I found.  I am sure it will work in other places than Virginia Beach. You've got a new iPhone 4, but you're a bit blue because apparently you've been holding phones wrong your whole life. No need to buy an expensive case to fix your phone-holding ha...

Took a day off from selling real estate in Virginia Beach and went a little west for adventure in Busch Gardens.  After a few rides we ventured off the beaten path and found some things you couldn't ride.  Pet maybe but not ride.
