  • The ABC's Of CleaningExclusive

    Summer isn't a distant memory yet, but it is time to consider how busy you're going to be with a new schedule while still juggling your everyday schedule. Whew! I am already exhausted just thinking about it! So, you may already have a cleaning company. This is not just a luxury for homeowners anymore; it is an absolute necessity, and it ranks right up there with having an electric bill. I want to share with you some timesaving tips for your "in-between” visits. These guidelines have helped my family and have created a nice flow of consistency and expectations.
    We de-clutter daily. It is so easy to let school papers and bills pile up. What do I keep and what do I toss?...

  • After winning the region in 2015 and falling in last year's region final to Leonardtown, the Severna Park baseball team is once again back in the state tournament.

  • Term Versus Permanent Insurance: Which Is Right for You?

    What’s your most valuable asset? While you are still working, this asset may actually be your future income, so you need to protect it. And you can do so by maintaining adequate life insurance, which can help provide your family with the financial resources necessary to meet critical expenses — such as mortgage payments, college tuition and so on — should you pass away prematurely. But what type of insurance should you purchase? There’s no one “right” answer for everyone, but by knowing some of the basics of different polices and how they relate to your specific needs, you can make an informed decision.
    As its name suggests, term insurance is designed to...

  • Hit A Home Run This Summer At Maryland’s Craft Breweries

    As summertime approaches, I can’t think of two things that go better together on a sweltering day than baseball and cold beer.
    And Maryland is home to the best of both – the Orioles are one of the top teams in the American League and craft brewers from the mountains of Western Maryland to the Ocean City boardwalk are producing award-winning beer.
    In that spirit, I recently joined the Brewers Association of Maryland and the Maryland Office of Tourism at Peabody Heights Brewery in Baltimore to announce the launch of the Baseball & Brew Scorecard. This fun game encourages Marylanders and out-of-state visitors to hit the road this summer and fill out their scorecards by...

  • Are You And Your Pet Ready For The Unexpected?

    It is a well-known fact that pets keep humans healthier.

But what if your pet became seriously ill or had a life-threatening injury? Would you be able to take care of your pet like they take care of you when you are ill?
    Advanced medical care and improved technology are available for pets, allowing your veterinarian to provide better treatment; however, that can,...
