Easter Sunday isn't just a serious holy day for Christians, but it's the day, second only to Halloween, that children can look forward to a huge sugar high! There is a "drug" store here in DC that is famous for a huge selection of seasonal candy, including Easter Candy.  It's called Rodman's, an...

It used to be forsythia and redbuds.  When they popped out, we knew it was really spring.  But they have been a little late for the past couple of years.  Now it seems that the flowering crabapple trees are beating all of the other flowering fruit trees as the early bloomers. I passed this one on...

There is virtually no one here in Washington, DC who hasn't been looking forward to today - the first day of spring.  So this morning, when Willie the Labradoodle went out back for his morning fun romp, did we find little crocus bulbs spring up?  Um, no!   It reminded me of being in the old famil...

There is trouble brewing between neighbors in DC's Atlas District, a recently funky neighborhood near Capitol Hill.  And one particular dispute is leaving many of the long-time residents scratching their heads.

This might be the last of the snow photos coming from Washington's big chill of 2015 - at least I hope so! The snow has turned into rain, and our day of sunshine was just a tease.  Still, there is hope - this morning I saw my first robin of the year, and with some luck it could be the first sign...

When I drive to my office at Evers and Company, the route takes me through a national park, and last week, the drive was spectacular.  On the day after our last snow (and I do hope it's the last of the season), the sky was a bright blue and the sun was illuminating the ice that was clinging to t...

Long ago, people across the country have figured out that many people in Washington, DC don't think like the rest of the country.  That's simply an assumption I will make. To those same people, I remind them that the people who live here, the true Washingtonian, is a different person than the 435...

In about 30 short hours, Washington, DC's new marijuana law goes into effect.  And the United States Congress is totally pissed about it. A while back, the citizens of our nation's capitol voted by a huge majority to legalize recreational marijuana in the District.  Now, there is a mechanism that...
