glenwood: How To Keep Track Of Your Dog On The Golf Course - 11/11/11 06:13 PM
I take my ShiPoo for walks along the Glenwood golf course at night.  I let him run loose because there is never anyone else around.  Sometimes it is hard to locate him.  Now I just bring flash with me and when I can't locate him I use the flash and there he is.  Flashlights work also but arent' as neat.

glenwood: Vultures and Dogs in Glenwood - 04/26/11 09:11 PM
I was out for my bike ride this morning in Glenwood and ran across this strange sight.  Standing on a corner I looked one way down the street and saw the vultures and the other was the man walking his dog.  Such a strange world we live in.  Didn't get close enough to see what the vultures were eating.

glenwood: It Is Snowing in Virginia Beach - 04/04/10 02:40 PM
I went out this morning to enjoy the fresh air in Virginia Beach and it was snowing at about 60 degrees.  You see the Bradford Pear trees are in full bloom and they are very pretty unless your car is under them.  It was snowing little Bradford Pear petals everywhere down our street in Glenwood.

glenwood: Milestones - 03/08/10 08:32 PM
What milestones are in your life?  I recently went over 200,000 points on Active Rain.  I will be 55 in a few short days.  I just bought a new DROID and it is great.  I lived in the same house in Virginia Beach in Glenwood for over 10 years.  My car just went over 70,000 miles.  But the biggest milestone is 36 YEARS of marriage.  WOW can you believe it?  I certainly can't.  Well on my way to the next 36.

glenwood: Tax Rate Increase For Virginia Beach A Possibility - 02/25/10 09:12 AM
Will the tax rate increase for homeowners in Virginia Beach?  Home values in Virginia Beach and in my area of Glenwood have continued downward for the second year in a row.  The assessments on homes will fall by an average of 5.75%.  What a striking difference from 2006 - 2008 when assessments rose by over 20% each year in Virginia Beach.  If you want to see the entire report go to PilotOnline.com  While homeowners may think they will see their taxes go down, Mayor Will Sessoms thinks there should be a revenue nuetral budget.  Sounds like a plan to me.  What … (0 comments)

glenwood: How Do You List A House The Wrong Way? - 02/02/10 08:35 AM
Here are few ways to list your house the wrong way and keep it on the real estate market for a while in Glenwood. 
List it High Because I Know Someone Will Offer LessList the house on the high side because you know every buyer is looking for a bargain.  When a home seller interviews a Realtor® it's easy for them to get caught up in the excitement of choosing a sales price. If they can get more money for the home, it means more financial opportunities for the homeowner. Maybe it means they can afford to buy a larger, more expensive … (1 comments)

glenwood: Animals and Snow in Virginia Beach - 01/30/10 08:02 AM
Here are some pictures of the animals running around in Glenwood, my area of Virginia Beach.  This was first thing this morning around 7 am.  I saw a rabbit but he was too fast for me.  We have about 5 inches where I am and expecting more.
The man walking this guy said it was the dogs first snow.

I think the birds are thinking about how to get into the warm house.

You can't see them but the lake is filled with seagulls.

Here is a closeup of the seagulls.

Do you know where yard sales are in the Glenwood section of Virginia Beach?   I know where most of them are because I go to www.YardSaleTreasureMap.com .  The site takes information from Craigs list and posts them.  You enter a starting address, how many miles you want to drive, the day of the week and click search.  You are awarded with a Google (of course) map with each yard sale as well as driving directions.  If you click on the red balloon it gives you the time, address and any specifics about what is being sold.

glenwood: Blackbird Pie - 01/11/10 08:07 PM
This is what I woke up to the other morning in my backyard in Glenwood on the golf course.  I didn't know what they were doing until I zoomed in.  There were hunting nuts.  The black birds can't open them with their beaks so they get on a limb and crack it between their beaks.

glenwood: Why I Like A Small Sensor Camera Part VI - 12/14/09 07:23 PM
I was out walking again by my favorite canal in Glenwood when I took this picture of some birds in a tree.  Just a few steps later I took this picture of a dew drop on a limb.  All without changing a lens or a setting.  As I was looking at the dew drop at home for this post I said to myself that there is something inside and there was.  I put the picture in Adobe Photo Shop Elements and blew it up and turned it over.  Inside the dew drop was the sign to my neighborhood, Glenwood.  I wondered where … (7 comments)

glenwood: Orange You Glad You Stopped By Glenwood in Virginia Beach - 12/04/09 04:37 PM
I was out walking in Glenwood with my camera the other day and saw this orange tree.  Didn't know you could grow them here.  I go by this tree everyday and never noticed it until then.  It must have had oranges on it for a while and in past years.  How funny that you can miss something like that.

glenwood: Reflections in Glenwood - 11/29/09 11:11 AM
Reflections in Glenwood.  Sometimes I wonder what is real and what is just a reflection of what I think is real.  Does it matter if it is real or just a reflection if the beauty is the same?  The first picture is a reflection of the early morning sun in Virginia Beach.  The reflection was from a pool of water on the parking lot of a defunct drug store.  The second picture of couse is the pool of water.

glenwood: Handheld Panarama For Glenwood - 11/28/09 05:03 PM
I took this handheld panarama near Glenwood while I was walking on Thanksgiving mornint.  This is in reality a field soon to be filled with condos and business's in Virginia Beach.  If you look at the corner of Independence and Princess Anne towards the Home Depot you will recognize it.  It looks so serene from here.  The reason I put it here was to show you that a handheld panarama is possible.   I did the actual work in a software called ARC.  What I had to do in photoshop was fill in the bottom left part of the picture.  It was mostly … (1 comments)

glenwood: Not Much Damage In Glenwood After Nor"easter - 11/15/09 11:02 AM
Not much damage in the Glenwood area of Virginia Beach after the Nor'easter.  There were some fences down, Independence Blvd had a high water area but nothing like happened in the last tropical storm we had.  Most of the damage was due to the 75 mph wind that blew for a while.  Luckily we don't live in one of the areas affected by the tides.
