Writer's Block: Local Favorite

What's your favorite thing to show out-of-town guests when they come to visit?


I'm in Maryland, a pretty state. It's nickname is America in Miniature because we have mountains and lakes to the west and beaches to the east.

In Baltimore, I would recommend the National Aquarium, a better then average aquarium.

I would take them to London on the train. Nothing happens in my town!

Ah...but London trains are so neat! They run frequently and go everywhere. In the states, most people drive instead of taking trains. Our country is a big sprawling land. So trains run the most in the northeast.

PS I love my icon...

Yes I have, but for a short time in LA.

Funny, Maryland is not a good place to live if you have allergies. It's a Piedmont(foothill to mountains) but parts of it are on swampland (like Virginia, another unfriendly allergy state) Western Maryland is better, because it's part of the Appalachian mountains. It's summers are hot, humid and stormy and mild winters (usually) California, despite the quakes and fires has the ideal weather. Very few places in the world have that same perfect weather. South Australia does. They also have the fires you do. I think there a parts of South Africa with that same temperate climate, so rare elsewhere. So if I had to live anywhere it would be California. The state is overcrowded (the weather is one reason) and almost bankrupt. But it still is a wonderful place to live.

Oh, come on, Rachel...

The aquarium is really nice but there is so much to that area for people to see. The whole waterfront is pretty nice in my mind. What about the old WW II submarine (if it's still there).

There is actually a very thought provoking holocaust work in not to far from the waterfront as well. It's the side of a train boxcar that you can stand behind and look through the slats at the barren pavement with shrubs around. It was moving.

Oh... and don't forget the dozens of eateries that have crabcakes. (*yum) Not all places have them as good and the Maryland area. We mostly have clam strips and lobster rolls up in Mass.

I'm sorry I haven't had much time to post these last few months. How have things been going down your way. Does it feel like April weather there too?

Here's to sunshine and warmth.

LOL...Sean. Now I didn't know you had been to Baltimore! That m,eans you've been everywhere.

Awk..I really am not wild over the city, but you make it seem have way decent

As for the crabcakes. They're already right, I guess. Keeping Koshar I wouldn't be eating them.

It's typical Baltimore (heck Marland) weather. Hot, humid, hot, humid, hot, humid. And sometimes it storms!

Nope, not plains. No bad lands. Unless you count the commute between Baltimore and Washington. Second only to LA in traffic jams.

No, I haven't. I was never even aware to the site. Thank you so much! Very pretty! This is from 2008 (it looks like) I'll go through the rest of the site.

Thanks you!

Re: icon
Wow...what a surprise! Very cute. You didn't have to do that, but it was very nice of you! I love it. You should offer this and the others on your site. I just credited you, not your site yet.

Maryland sounds lovely.

I figured I'd better introduce myself instead of just rambling at you from out of the blue. I know you guys sometimes attract weirdoes. Well, I am one, but I am of the better sort! :) BK wanted me to tell you that she and SJ both give me a five star rating and highly recommend me, ha! She also said, "USE A NICE ICON!" It was too late, however, as I had already used one of HER icons. :)

I will use a nice one this time :P One SJ made for me.

LOL..I recognized your icon from SJ. It's a nice icon. She and Judy (BK) are great friends.
