    PSA: Be careful when driving...

    It's that time of year again, when turtles are crossing the road! So keep an eye out, especially in more rural areas. If you see something in the road, slow down. If it's a turtle, pull over (if it's safe to do so), and help it across the road, in the direction it's already going. Helpful video. :)

    How to get trash dumped on roadside picked up? (Charles county)

    As I was driving to work, I noticed a pile of 10-15 tires dumped on the side of the road. Besides finding a friend with a truck, how can I go about getting these picked up? I did a google search, and looked around the Charles county website, but couldn't find anything. Thanks!

    Informal poll - interest in martial arts?

    Garbage/trash services you'd recommend?

    Follow up... After contacting 5-6 companies, went with the only one to get back to me: TNT. They missed the first pickup, but when I contacted them, they picked up the next day. Cost was $90/quarter. We'll see how things progress.

    Garbage/trash services you'd recommend?

    I'm in the process of closing on a house (in Charles county), and need to start trash pickup service. Does anyone have any recommendations? This can be for or against. Thanks!!

    Local Business What happened to the asian food store in Calloway?

    Does anyone know what happened to the asian food store in Calloway? In the same general area as Gridiron Grill. Did they move, or shut down for good?

    Crime rate in Mechanicsville

    I mentioned to a co-worker that I am considering buying a house in Mechanicsville. He says, "Oh, you have to be careful of the crime there." I find this odd, since a lot of the area is fairly rural. So I ask him what kinds of crime. And he says, "People just coming around, taking stuff."...

    Informal poll - interest in martial arts?

    QUICK UPDATE: Our dojo is currently on hiatus, since the space has been rented out. We're searching for a new location, and might have something soon that would allow for expanded class times.

    Informal poll - interest in martial arts?

    I've heard this before, and I don't understand it. Some people want to practice a martial art, but they want it for free. Renting the space (among several other things) costs money. Am I being naive?

    Informal poll - interest in martial arts?

    For my aikido program, the minimum age is approximately 15 years old (depends on the person). For this future business model? It would depend on the style/system being taught.

    Informal poll - interest in martial arts?

    That's the idea I'm contemplating. Having a "Martial Arts Center" that teaches multiple styles, all under one roof. If your friends are interest in aikido, and practicing with us, please have them contact me. PM me for info. Thanks!!
