A few years back, when my grandmother died, we had to clean out her house. She wasn’t much of a pack rat, so it was surprising to discover an old box of prescriptions dating back to the 1960′s. Perhaps she had some crafty pharmaceutical plans for her stash of old medicine? Doesn’t exactly fit her profile. I’m guessing she just didn’t know what to do with them. After all, you can’t (or shouldn’t) flush them down the toilet. And putting them in the trash (I’m told) is a no no.
Fast forward to 2012, and I’m guilty of the same. I still have old bottles of this and that sitting unused and forlorn in my over crowded linen closet. But I’ve got good news, folks. Salvation is right around the corner.

2011 Wrap up
On Wednesday of this week I had an opportunity to share some local real estate statistics on the new Washington Post’s “Where We Live“ blog. While it didn’t exactly launch into a vibrant on-line discussion (come on… it’s statistics), it was fun having it out there.
The table below breaks down real estate activity for 2008-2011 in the Bethesda/Chevy Chase/DC markets. Read below the graph for detailed analysis on what it all means…
I’ve been selling real estate for 12+ years. I’m always getting asked how the market is doing. The simple answer is that it’s a whole lot better than the rest of the country. But those in the market always want more detail, and that’s complicated. It’s easier to talk about real estate when there is a distinct swing in the market. I’ve been tracking real estate trends in Bethesda/Chevy Chase/Northwest DC for many years (specifically zip codes 20814, 20815, 20816, 20817, 20015 and 20016) and in 2011 we’ve got a hodge-podge of plusses and minuses, ending the year on a bit of a dull plateau. Still, given the turmoil in other parts of the US, this is a fine predicament.

WTOP just reported that there’s a new (pesky) crop of speed cameras in DC. Having paid for a camera or two myself, I thought I’d share the information. Knowing of their location has certainly lightened my lead foot. It’s good to slow down and sniff the flowers, eh?
Add to list: 4700 block of MacArthur heading towards Canal Road and right alongside Reservoir…..25 mph.
Also add the corner of Fessenden and Nebraska Ave …. there is a camera …. not for speeding but you get a $150 fine if you don’t stop at the “limit” line (line before the crosswalk line).
Safe driving, folks!

A couple of times a year, whenever I visit my doctor at Foxhall Square, I stop off at Shemali’s. Shemali’s specializes in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean foods, and it’s just a fabulous place for all sorts of delicacies. My husband, who is a bit of a babaganoush snob, swears that theirs is the best in town. I love their hummus, tabbouleh, falafel and spinach pies. Their pita bread is always fresh and soft… not like the Read the rest of this entry »
