The Realtor in me wondered how these folks are paying for it. Most people don't … [Read more...]

Strawberry Fields Don’t Last Forever

Who's your farmer

In elementary school our kids all took field trips to Great Country Farms (GCF) in Bluemont. They were able to live the life of a farm hand for a day and it gave them an appreciation for the amount of work it takes to run a farm. Maddie fell in the pond during hers and came home with a t-shirt, pretty nifty on her part even if she did smell … [Read more...]

Who’s on Your Team?

2014 Cowboys draftees

Last week the NFL had it's draft and my Cowboys picked an offensive lineman for the 3rd time in the last 4 years. Johnny Manziel was still on the board and as much as I like Romo, it would have been alright by me if they had taken him. Even stranger was the trade with the Redskins to take another defensive end named Demarcus. What was Snyder … [Read more...]
