A Visit to the Spring Maryland Home and Garden Show

If you are shopping for that next home improvement project or are looking to spruce up your landscape then you should check out the Maryland Home and Garden Show. Held twice a year at the Timonium Fairgrounds, this show brings many local contractors and landscapers to one location.

At this year’s Spring show, we talked to a number of contractors and picked up many brochures. The upper garage at Bubba’s Garage may be getting a new floor covering and possibly a new concrete walkway. But, one of the craziest thoughts was putting in a Fitness Swim Spa made by Aquatica. Because we live on a mountain flat ground is hard to come by and it would take too much effort to locate one of these beasts. Still better than a pool I guess. Several spa vendors are available if you are looking for one.

The garden side of the Home and Garden Show was spectacular. The landscape artists did a fantastic job of creating a wonderland. My favorite aspect of the show were all the water features bubbling all around you.

The Maryland Home and Garden Show is a great way to spend a couple of hours even if you aren’t shopping for anything.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
