Crabbing Season in Southern Maryland! The Chesapeake Bay is one of the only estuaries in North America. It is is also the sanctuary for the Maryland Blue Crab. For Maryland and Virginia the harvest of this little crustacean is a huge part of our economy. (racking in over 100 million dollars in 1993) Since then harvest has dropped due to regulations, so that this tasty little creature can still survive and reproduce. So, be safe and stick to the regulations, you can have yourself a nice meal! Crab Pots: The laid back approach and not quite as fun, but it can get the job done. Just stick some chicken necks in the trap and come back the next day to see if you've caught yourself some "Jimmies". Speaking of chicken... "Chicken Necking" as our family likes to call it. Is our preferred method ...

Ready To Spring Forward?  Southern Maryland get ready! This Sunday (March 14th) is 2010 Daylight Saving Time. (DST) You're technically supposed to change your clock at 2:00 am standard time.  If you plan on making church on time, make sure to set you clock an hour ahead before your hit the sack, or you're going to be late. We gain an extra hour of lightin the evening ladies and gentlemen! Get ready to fire up those grills! The theory behind the clock change is to save energy, however it hasn't really been proven to work. Benjamin Franklin is actually the guy who came up with it! But the practice wasn't instituted in the United States until WWI. Places like Hawaii, Arizona, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Indiana, PuertoRico don't even recognize DST. Europe has been taking advantage of t...

Drum Point Community! Lusby Md 20657 I have lived in the Community of Drum Point for 17 years and it is one of my favorite places in Southern Maryland. It is located in Calvert County and is a small community, originally created   Drum Point Property Owners Association  Drum Point Community, Lusby Md 20657 is located in Southern  Maryland making up 622 lots. Prior to World War 11, Drum Point was a very rural community where residents made their living off of the land and water. An economic boom hit and the joys of leisure time and water recreation became more popular drawing in more visitors. As times changed and Southern Maryland grew, so did the Drum Point community, becoming a destination and week-end resort. Drum Point as well as other communities in Southern Maryland expanded way b...

 " Some scientists might say the definition of animal vs. human intelligence is merely a matter of degree"- MSNBC 1) Humans are highly intelligent creatures. We have the capacity to learn, assess the future, love, grieve, memorize. We have culture, history and innovation. We use tools and the art of deception. However, we're not the big man on top, by a long run. These critters around here are smarter than you think. 2) Chimps, In the Animal Kingdom, chimps are widely considered to be our long lost ancestors. In fact, humans and Chimpanzees share a whopping 98% the same genotype. Chimps use tools and have the ability to communicate. (even learn sign language and have full on conversations with humans) They have culture as well. Each group or tribe has distinctive rituals and customs. Fi...

Having Just opened our new studio, SKD Studios, we are amazed at the amount of people that are ready to remodel the master bath.  The master bath is becoming a room that homeowners are viewing as their own private retreat.  Many manufactures are aware and have come up with some amazing products to suit the growing demands of homeowners.  Kohler has some really fun new vanity pieces that are both stylish and contemporary.  These pieces come with the sink as well as the vanity for a sleek look.        there are so many options to choose from now, that the average homeowner may become overwhelmed quickly.  At SKD Studios we understand that consumers want style and function but they also want pieces that are affordable.  Some things to think about when remodeling the master bath are where t...

Stress is a physical response by an outside stimulus. This response consists of an abrupt change in a person's physical, emotional, or mental well being.  Way back when, we were hunting and gathering in caves, stress was our "Fight or Flight" response. When you get those goosebumps. (Which is actually when we used to tuft out fur, much like out cat does when it's afraid) You heart starts racing, your blood starts pumping...you are experiencing stress. The difference is, today, we're not being chased down by a Saber Tooth Tiger. Our economy is a bit trying and we are all working harder than ever. Our daily routines continue: We may have to pick the kids up from school, meet a client for a walk through by 5, make dinner, then go back to to office to sign a contract with the 5th offer for ...

I am on the Calvert County Tourism commission and we had our monthly meeting yesterday. One of the speakers was Tim Hepler from the Chesapeake Hills Golf Course. Calvert County purchased the golf course in November 2008 and they have really done some work! Their first focus was the greens. They are steadily making progress on them. They have renovated the patio and plan to add a tent for golf functions. Inside they are painting and doing some cosmetic work to make the clubhouse more appealing. They plan on remodeling the banquet room so it can be used for golf course events and outings. It will be great to have a nice golf course in Lusby!
