    Garbage/trash services you'd recommend?

    Another vote for Evergreen. For an extra $5 per month they come up my steep 200-foot driveway to retrieve the can, dump it, then bring it back up to the house. Totally worth it.

    Shoulder lane?? We are talking about the right turn lane of Rt 235 which has signs posted stating: "Right lane must turn right at signal", not right lane must turn right immediately upon entering right lane.

    Except the intersections on 235 of Millstone Landing Rd., Rue Purchase Rd. and Expedition Dr. all have islands that channel you onto the right turn lane of 235, thus requiring you to use the right turn lane as an acceleration lane to merge into traffic.

    This also happens on roads without designated turn lanes. The signs read: "Right lane must turn right at signal", which is what I said.

    Opinion wanted: driving.

    The legal requirement of the right turn lanes on 235 between the base and Rt. 4 is that you make a right turn before crossing the next intersection. I agree that people that jump in that lane early and stay in it all the way to Rt 4 are in the wrong, and that it is poorly enforced. And any...

    Opinion wanted: driving.

    There is no shoulder on 235 at Town Creek Drive. It is a travel lane designated for right turn before the next intersection, and as such can be used to merge with traffic on 235 when possible. The previous intersections on 235 of Millstone Landing Rd., Rue Purchase Rd. and Expedition Dr. all...

    House Air Duct cleaning

    Most of the time that is true, but I've seen some pretty bad ones when I worked for a duct cleaning company 25 years ago. Mostly those were fairly old houses. Once a layer of crud forms the build-up accelerates due to the increased friction. Low volume blower motors and inadequate filters also...

    House Air Duct cleaning I've had them clean my 35-ft. dryer vent, and they did a great job. Not sure what your reason is, but some access holes will be needed to properly clean the trunk lines. Beware of any companies that states...

    Vehicle Window Tinting?

    Another vote for Platinum Sounds in Prince Frederick. They have done 3 of my vehicles, soon to be 4. Price is based on the number of windows you want tinted, and the quality level of the film you choose to have them apply.

    Roid Rage In The Grocery Checkout

    If he had room to throw his stuff down, and shove your items down the belt, there must have been a lot of open space on the belt. Was there that much room in between your items, or was it one of those belts that the cashier has to press a button to advance? Lots of empty space on the belt can...

    Prince Frederick, Armory Road Project Plans

    The Dunkirk Walmart should have been named Smallmart™ The Prince Frederick Walmart isn't much easier to navigate though. They cram pallets of extra merchandise everywhere, as well as stand-alone displays along the entire perimeter aisle-way.

    Prince Frederick, Armory Road Project Plans

    Whenever there is talk of new commercial development in Calvert, there are always concerns about increased traffic. A lot of that traffic is people who travel outside the country to either work or shop, or both. Having more businesses locally could actually alleviate some traffic at Calvert's...

    Calvert High Graduation

    I can remember seeing signs/banners on the Green Landing Rd bridge as far back as the early/mid 80's, and that was when Calvert's & Northern's graduations were held at the Cap Center. Not nearly as many, and definitely not as elaborate as they are now though.

    How early is too early to mow your lawn?

    Maryland noise regulations are based upon the type of property, and the time of day. For residential properties, 65dB is maximum during the daytime, and 55dB at night. Sound levels are to be measured on the receiving property, not the source. Daytime is considering 7:00AM-10:00PM...

    Curbside Trash Collection Services

    I have used Evergreen for almost 2 years now, and overall I'm satisfied with the service. Previously I took my trash to a drop-off center in the back of my truck. I have a very long, very steep driveway, so I am not interested in curbside pickup. I went with Evergreen because they offer...
