It is not so much of a hardship when the 3 inches of snow that closes the schools in the Central Maryland area, is the perfect wet snow for making a three tiered snowman! There is still room for improvement in the style though.

On the list to Santa this year (Father Christmas in our house) was a snow shovel. Nothing beats getting to "play" with a Christmas gift during yet another morning school delay in Baltimore County.         If you or someone you know is thinking of Buying or Selling property in Howard County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Harford County, Anne Arundel County, Carroll County, Montgomery County or Prince Georges County. - or if you would like more information please give Ellie McIntire a call at 443-418-7668 or e-mail Ellie@LNF.com   Ellie McIntire The McIntire Team 9171 Baltimore National Pike Ellicott City.

(psst - I've hijacked Tim's blog today.  Shhh ... don't tell him - let's just see if he notices) -Shari, Tim's Assistant :)   When Customer Service is Better than Expected.  Back in December my husband and I visited Grilled Cheese & Co. in Catonsville.  A relatively new restaurant, it has become one of our lunchtime favorites and we try to get there as often as we can.  My personal favorite is the Fresca, but my husband loves the Crabby Melt. On this most recent visit, we had a bit of confusion with our order.  Not quite satisfied with our waitress' answer, my husband asked if the Owner had a minute to speak with us.  Matt, one of the Owners stopped by our table, and quickly and congenially resolved our issue.  He offered several times to get us a little something extra to make up for t...

If you are looking for a FABULOUS place to eat, you have got to stop in to Duesenberg's in Catonsville, MD.  Just off Frederick Road on Mellor Avenue, parking is available at the meters or a short walk away in a lot.   There is often a wait as it's not a big place, but trust me, it will be well worth it!  It's billed as an American Cafe and Grill, but this ain't your ordinary cafe!  The food is as creative as it is delicious!  The portions are plentiful and the pricing is fair. Every server is friendly, professional and efficient.   It is obvious they love where they work!. Many of the customers are regulars, chatting with the servers and each other. They are open for breakfast and lunch 6 AM-3 PM.  If you get there early you can sample their amazingly light, and heavily powdered sugare...

 If you are a Baltimore County resident and in particular Catonsville and Arbutus, every year you are treated to a special visit from Santa Claus just before Christmas. The Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department Annual Santa Detail is a highlight of the season. (Especially when you have a 4 year old little boy!) All of the neighborhoods in the Catonsville and Arbutus area are mapped out and meticulously visited on that specific day. For a total of 11 days the volunteers escort Santa on a BIG RED FIRE TRUCK. FRIDAY  DECEMBER 10th - THURSDAY DECEMBER 23rd From 5:45pm - 8:30pm THEY DO NOT COME QUIETLY. Over the years it seems to have gotten bigger and bigger. The procession behind Santa's engine includes paramedics and other fire trucks. The sirens are blaring and the lights are a blaze. They c...

You've Heard It Through the Grapevine.....Maryland Real Estate is Selling.  So you've heard the real estate market here in Maryland might be getting better for Sellers.  Maybe a friend told you their home sold much more quickly than they expected, or you saw your neighbor's For Sale sign go up and down in record time.  Well, I can tell you from what I'm seeing here in the Greater Baltimore area, you've heard correctly.  Sellers that are educated about the competition in their area, and that are realistic with their expectations, are seeing their homes sell.  Often quickly, and sometimes with multiple offers. You've been thinking about moving, but you're not sure if you can afford it, and you're not sure where to start.  Do you talk to a Realtor first?  Or do you talk to a Lender first? ...

Saturday November 27th at 6:30 the festivities will begin in the heart of the business district on Frederick Road outside of the fire station.  There is live seasonal music from local groups, complimentary toasty warm beverages and of course the very loud arrival of Santa on the fire truck. (The third Santa sighting of the season)  Here is his arrival from last year.     The 2010 Christmas tree is ready for the ceremony. As you can see it is not the most giant of trees, but it serves the area well and all of the decorations are hand made by local children. If the weather is good then anticipa...

  Yesterday I posted a picture in the "Wordless Wednesday" Group just titled"Catonsville" The intent was not to be cryptic. It was one of a few taken last week during an OPEN HOUSE we attended at St Marks School in Catonsville My little angel is now in Pre-K and it's time to decide where he will be starting Kindergarten next Fall. St Marks Catholic School is an excellent school in the heart of Catonsville founded in 1889 under the School Sisters of Notre Dame. They have served generations of families in the Catonsville area and is very close to home. The Open House tour was very informative and our 7th grade  guides diligently showed us all of the areas of the school. They were very enthusiastic about the quality of the education that they were receiving. We viewed the computer lab, the...

There is no Mistake that it is Fall in Maryland. Catonsville is an area rich in old leafy trees. The beauty of the changing landscape is breathtaking. A change that is followed by the falling of the leaves and the carpet that they create on the ground. There is nothing more enjoyable than "Shushing" in the piles that the wind creates. This was our late afternoon walk enjoying the delicious warm weather we have had this week. This was in common areas in Catonsville so no raked leaves were disturbed.       If you or someone you know is thinking of Buying or Selling property in Howard County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Harford County, Anne Arundel County, Carroll County, Montgomery County or Prince Georges County. - or if you would like more information please give Ellie McIntire a ...

Featured Listing Friday - Featured Community:  Catonsville, MD - Hillcrest Elementary School Attendance Area.  As I have noted before, if you are searching for a home in Maryland by school, it's not always an easy task.  Not all agents list the schools in the MLS, so if you limit your search by school, you may be missing a number of potential homes.  Also, not all agents list neighborhoods in the MLS, so you can't limit using that parameter either. The best way, in Maryland, to search for a home in a particular school's attendance area is to first search by zip code, and then use the school district's tool to check if a home is in the attendance boundary for that school.  In some instances, particularly for middle and high schools, you may have to search by more than one zip code.  If t...
