This morning, the buyer for my client's house did a walk through before settlement.   I had told the seller three weeks ago that he should start moving the furniture out of the house because we had removed all the contingencies and the  house was going to close.  I knew that the seller had been t...
I confess that my idea of New Year's Eve is a good dinner and tucked up in bed by 10 - After all, I have to be ready to eat black eyed peas on New Year's Day with my family!

Some of them are still inhabited even now - and offer a beautiful sense of what it was like to live in a home that George Washington might have visited! But Washington is a vibrant, living city with a great ni...
Every year we have a turkey and a Smithfield ham at our house for Christmas - this is an absolute not to be varied Christmas tradition.  My uncle probably twenty five years ago commented that he was glad I had a Smithfield ham - according to his father (my grandfather) - it just isn't Christmas w...
