On another thread we were talking about how winter may be harsh this year, and we might have a few days when we're all snowbound. Here's my suggestion for getting through days like that:

Grab your digital camera today (or this week) and go for a walk. It's gorgeous outside, so now's the time to take photos of your neighborhood. Or a park you like. Or buildings you think are well designed. Or the crazy traffic. Or kayaking on the Potomac. Or whatever you think tells a story about life in NOVA.

Then you can sort through the photos when we're all snowbound. We'll all be on city-data, with nothing to talk about but the snow. Talk about the perfect time for posting a few photo tours.

These photo tours are great PR for NOVA.
Maybe the county government leaders will write some nice fat checks for all of you. Don't hold your breath, though.

LOL, hey if I get a check maybe I can buy a new pair of pants for the kid down the street so his butt doesn't hang out!

OK I know I said take photos of "whatever you think tells a story about life in NOVA" but let's not have any photo tours of middle school boys with their butts hanging out of their pants! Some of us eat lunch while we read city-data... .
