Wednesday June 1st- I took the day off!After the 31 day challenge of May marathon I am sure there were a lot of people who did not post for the day.I was busy elsewhere!Yesterday my little baby graduated from Pre-K. Doesn't time fly!We had a WONDERFUL ceremony at M.D.O.W Pre-K program in Oella to end the year. It was complete with a procession to the stage with all the children sporting mortarboards that had been hand made. All the children sang us some of the songs they had learned in music class this year with Miss Kathleen and also performed the ENTIRE alphabet in sign language.  They all received a diploma of completion and walked across the stage to accept it. With a class of 14 boys and 4 girls it was an interesting year. They were all so well behaved today. Miss Sheila in the Oce...

On Saturday I read a local online article about many of the area boy scouts, cub scouts, brownies and girl scouts troops participating in the 28th Anniversary "We Remember" Memorial Flag Ceremony at the Baltimore National Cemetery on Frederick Road.In honor of Memorial Day, this annual event gathers approximately 1,500 young volunteers on the Friday evening before the weekend begins. They respectfully place an American Flag on every one of the 45,000+ grave sites in the 72-acre cemetery. The Baltimore National Cemetery was formally dedicated 70 years ago on Memorial Day, Monday May 30th 1941As an area resident I was aware of a cemetery, a few years ago I sold a home directly across the road, but I never had a reason to visit and appreciate the enormity of the grounds. After reading this...

Catonsville, deemed "Music City" in 2002, has a lot to offer with great schools, location, amenities, restaurants, parks and community spirit, but one of the joys of the summer months for local residents is the musical concerts performed at the Lurman Woodland Theatre. Located on Bloomsbury Avenue beside the Catonsville High School, it is tucked away behind a band of thick oak trees. It is an outside amphitheater with a long history in the community. There are no seats, but there is plenty of grass and pleasant shade to enjoy a very wide range of local music all summer long ; Big band, Jazz, Bluegrass, cover bands etc. All of the performances are free, but donations are very much appreciated. Bring a chair or a blanket and a picnic and enjoy the evening. There is even a place for childr...

Christ Lutheran Nursery School-Pre-schools in Catonsville, MD I am a working mom.  When Sydney was born, I was working as a mortgage loan processor at my sister's company. I was blessed to be able to bring my daughter to work with me since she was only 8 weeks old.  When Sydney started to crawl, I began working with my brother, eventually becoming a loan officer. As a mother of "advanced maternal age", it was very important to me to spend as much time with my daughter as I could.  I loved my job, I was good at it. I had a great support at home and at the office that allowed me to do both.  Sydney had not been away from me her whole life, unless she was with family.  Sending my daughter to pre-school was a huge decision for my husband and I.  Sydney and I spent lots of time reading, play...

Catonsville residents, myself included, are delighted that the CATONSVILLE SUNDAY FARMERS MARKET is about to begin again for the season. Sunday May 15th marks the opening day. The "Original" Catonsville Farmers Market is on Wednesdays at the Bloomsbury Community Center, but a morning during the middle of the week is less convenient for me. A Sunday morning stroll that ends at the Sunday Market is a perfect weekend activity.  Located at 730 Frederick Road, the parking lot behind Friendly's Restaurant, the activities begin at 10am till 1:30pm. Rain or shine (looks like tomorrow may not be a perfect sunny day) Fresh locally grown produce, meat, eggs and baked goods are even more tempting when being serenaded by local musicians. Current Vendors  Andy's Produce Bakers Park Baltimore Waffle ...

Catonsville Restaurants-Chef Paolino, A Family Favorite Our kitchen is in the midst of construction so we decided to head out for dinner, but where to go?  The Catonsville Chamber of Commerce has done a fabulous job of bringing a wide variety of new restaurant options to Catonsville.  There are also many wonderful restaurants that have been around for as long as I can remember (and beyond!) We decided to head to a local Catonsville Favorite, Chef Paolino, just off Frederick Road.  Our family has  been a fan of Chef Paolino since they opened at 726 Frederick Road, (it's actually just off Ingleside Avenue).  The restaurant offers a wide variety of Pizza and other Authentic Italian Fare. We all love the pizza. The thin crust and generous portion, with just the right amount of cheese and sa...

Promenade or Prome-not? There is a lot of local controversy in Catonsville, a south west suburb of Baltimore County about potential development of a huge multi use complex known as The Catonsville Promenade. Currently the 200 acre property that fronts up to the Baltimore ring road I-695 is known as Spring Grove Hospital Center. Although I am told there are still residents on the campus, a majority of the classic buildings are empty and appear abandoned. For the 8 years I have lived in Catonsville the ONLY activity I have been aware of is when a patient has escaped and there is a recorded phone message to make me aware. I recently took a morning stroll to take some pictures. There was not a soul in sight.Here are some of the buildings. "Spring Grove Hospital Center in Catonsville"Create ...
