Tuscarora Football Has Something Special

Tuscarora Huskies State Championship Game

I'm a firm believer that youth sports are about a lot more than what happens on the field or the court. They are a great way to teach our kids lessons which can last their entire lives. Things like working hard, learning to lead, and being accountable for your actions. Sure there are other ways to get these concepts across to your children, … [Read more...]

I Know A Guy

2-guns-clip-01

I've probably said it here before but I am a huge movie buff. When we built our house the only thing I wanted was to make sure we had a home theater. Last week Heather and I watched Two Guns with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. It's about two undercover agents who are trying to bust a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions of dollars. … [Read more...]

Playing a Round at Creighton Farms Golf Club

Jack Nicklaus golf community in Loudoun

I've played a lot of high caliber golf courses, Congressional, Pinehurst, Treyburn (that's Michael Jordan's club in Durham, NC) just to name a few. It takes more than a gate and a high initiation fee to stand out. Along with perfect conditions the layout must be challenging, the setting spectacular, and the service impeccable. It was no … [Read more...]

On Your Mark, Get Set, Trot!

Cross Country

In the land of overachievers that is LoCo, there is no way fitness takes a backseat. No matter how hot or cold it gets we see runners, walkers, and cyclists on the streets. Even though we aren't a family of runners it's hard not to notice the number of Turkey Trots in our area. Around the holidays we all try to find a way to help those in need … [Read more...]

LoCoMusings Is World Wide

National Building Museum

When we first moved here almost 16 years ago we didn't know a soul. We stayed in a hotel for two months while we tried to get a feel for where we might want to live. That wasn't fun, although we can look back now at laugh at how bad it was. I'm sure we aren't the only people who have a story like this, and it's part of the reason Heather … [Read more...]

LoCo Market Update: Whatcha Waiting For?

Fence

Don't be distracted by the gnarly old tree, this is a picture of a fence. They are uncomfortable to sit on and people tend to be on one side or the other. It sure seems like this is where all the buyers are right now and it's kinda tough to understand. Let's take a look... Inventory isn't an issue. Earlier this year during the peak selling … [Read more...]

Halloween Spooktaculars Close to Home

Field of Screams

That picture is a few of the girls on the softball team I coach (including Natalie) as they were leaving the Field of Screams. After our tournament in Olney, MD we took a team field trip through the Paintball Apocalypse and the Trail of Terror and had a blast. It's not for the faint of heart, but all the girls who were brave enough to try made … [Read more...]

It’s Time For Pumpkin Chunkin’

Angry pumpkin chunkin'

Last year I took the girls up to Wayside Farm in Berryville to grab our pumpkins and wrote about all the fun we had. It's time to make another trip up there, the farm opens tomorrow. If you've got kids under 12 they'll definitely enjoy it. Cheers, Mike … [Read more...]
