Develop a habitat in your backyard

If you were a small animal, say a squirrel, or perhaps a frog, or a bird and you lived in the growing suburbs of Virginia, you might have one observation to make.  Namely, that the number of places where you can rest, get something to eat, build a nest, undisturbed are getting fewer and fewer.  Whether it’s finding a bit of

If McDonnell resigns, will Bolling run?

Many, and this has been brewing for several months now, have been urging Bolling to mount a write-in campaign

The first popularly elected governor of Virginia was voted into office in 1851 and since then no Governor has ever resigned from office.

The unsinkable Mr. Kennedy!

Just after college I had a job at a Northern Virginia credit union and as a part of my job I picked up the loan applications that had come by teletype from our overseas offices. The man who watched all of the teletype machines and coordinated the various transactions was in his mid-to late 60s. This was a post retirement job, and his name was John McGuire. In the course of getting to know him I learned that just like my father he had been in the Navy, and just like my Dad he had served in the Pacific. He had been a PT-Boat sailor. His service
