    Paid Parking Slowly Killing Reston Town Center?

    Paid Parking Under Consideration for Reston, Tysons by Catherine Douglas Moran, RestonNow The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is gearing up to study parking management options, which could add paid parking in Reston and Tysons. FCDOT hopes to hire a professional parking consultant to explore parking management, which FCDOT says would fulfill the vision of the Comprehensive Plan for each area. It would also reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions from drivers circling blocks to find free street parking and create a new revenue stream, FCDOT argues.

    Christmas Events around Washington, DC

    Very cool Christmas/Holiday train exhibit (great for kids and adults) at the US Botanical Gardens. There are concerts on select Tuesdays and Thursdays and admission is free. The place is warm, protected from the elements and there are plant-based US landmarks recreated sprinkled throughout the center hall. Lines can be long to get in, but if you have not done this it is really cool. The National Christmas tree and events around the US State and Territory trees are also pretty neat to do if you have not.

  7. Why we can’t agree on gun control by Jen Zamzoe The problem isn’t a lack of information. It’s how we are predisposed to interpret it.
  8. There are laws in place, I would not call them strict nor are they tight. Violence stats are out there and sobering to say the least. We are a Country where guns are part of our lives (even if you do not own one or more) - and not for absolute need (I am sure people will disagree). The daily and weekly headlines noting violence are not helping strengthen laws, perhaps just the opposite...are we becoming immune to them?

  12. If you want to let your Representatives know you are pissed, concerned or whatever, here are links (email addresses, phone #'s etc) and stats for you and our surrounding areas: Virginia Maryland District of Columbia The stats are sobering - for anyone outside the area, you can easily look up your state and district here. I am not saying they listen, but you have to let them know.

    Servers Who Won't Write Down Orders

    So I digress (sort of) - I have always been impressed with server(s) who can remember an order without writing it down. I even order in reverse order i.e. dessert, entree, salad, appetizer to mix them up and see if they can do it (for fun). Those who do, and it has been often, rarely fail. Upon occasion we have had a server come back and ask for a clarification, but overall, experience has been pretty good. We go to this restaurant several times/year (were there 2 weeks ago), and there is a server there who has never written down our order. It is quite impressive and our kids love it. If dining in a nicer restaurant, I always think it a little tacky when a server pulls out a pad of paper and writes down an order, but again, I am always impressed by someone taking their job seriously. I could not be a server and wait on people - just could not do it, not in my wheelhouse; have the utmost respect.

    Lobster Rolls

    Ford's Fish Shack has a decent roll as does Jackson's. I was really hesitant to try one at Jacksons, but it was pleasantly good.
