Amazing support for us agents ultimately means we can create a great experience for our clients: better communication with our buyers, stunning marketing campaigns for our sellers’ properties, reliable transaction management. We’re looking forward to serving you!

It might not seem like real estate and wine making have much in common, but in my small little world, they do! Donna Evers not only owns and operates Evers & Company Real Estate, but she also is a successful Virginia wine maker. As owner of Twin Oaks Tavern Winery in Bluemont, VA, Donna has been making wines since 2002.
Just this week I talked my 15-year-old son into accompanying me to help bottle the wine. To sum it up, Donna hired a bottling truck (for lack of a better word). Within the truck, bottles are funneled along a conveyer belt, washed, dried, filled, corked, capped and labeled. Then, a la Lucy style (imagine Lucille Ball working at the chocolate factory) the bottles get quickly placed into cases, sealed up, and carried into the old stone farm house for storage. T’is a beautiful thing!
Here are a few photos of our day at the Winery. My job was to load the bottles onto the truck and get them ready for placement on the conveyer belt. Malcolm got to carry the bottles from the driveway to the truck (the much harder job). And we both got a chance to load the bottles from the conveyer belt into cases.
If you’re looking for a fun day trip, I highly recommend a trip to Twin Oaks Tavern. Their tasting room is open most days from 12-6 (open Thursday – Monday), and there’s live music on the weekends. It’s an easy 1-hour drive from Bethesda, and even closer if you’re traveling from DC. Enjoy!
Hope you are fine today? Thanks for your mail and your willingness to assist me in this transaction. I assure you that all will be well at the end of the day and this transaction will benefit us immensely. All I need from you is your willingness and disposition to follow my instructions and directives while I guide you.You must also understand that this project will require a little of your time and commitment for it to be actualized.
Why i said this is because during the course of the transaction it may be required of you to travel to Malaysia which are the likely point where this transfer can be effected. So in essence it may require your physical presence. This will be the best way to realise this project faster and smoothly. The maximum you will be expected to stay in this trip is 2 working days and everything will be concluded and the money wired into your account. So before I proceed with the details of the procedure,I will like you to give me an answer to this very basic issue I raised. Can you be able to travel for this project to this destination I told you about?Reply urgently so that I can give you further details on how we will proceed.
I look forward to working with you on this project.
Packing my bags.
I have a friend who lives in the apartments across from BCC High School. The last time I was there I was blown away by the view of the school- especially as the sun was setting. Last night I remembered to bring my camera along. I think the resulting photo is rather spectacular! You can see the Mormon Temple in the distance.
When I was a kid “The Beverly Hillbillies” was a really big deal. It was on the air for seven years and led the ratings for two of them. By the time I got around to seeing it, it was on the afternoon rotation (hardly prime time). It was a pretty goofy show, with plenty of canned laughter.
One of the characters, Elly May Clampett, the curvaceous daughter of Jed Clampett, was as famous for her pitching arm as she was for her love of water. She was a big fan of the swimming hole, the ce-ment pond, and the rather dishy pool in the back of their grand Beverly Hills mansion. Let’s just say that she was a water enthusiast.
And so, without further ado, here’s your link to swimming holes across the United States. It’s a great site full of interesting information about, well, swimming holes, hot springs and spots close to major highways (for a road trip dip!). Natural lakes or quarries are to be found all around the US. I’ve been to Beaver Dam near Baltimore. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen people on a spinning log (they weren’t too good, either). It had a great rope swing that scared the hell out of me when my own kids were on it. I’ve heard that it has closed down, or severely curtailed it’s offerings. Let’s hope the same can’t be said of your local spot.
Summer is upon us. Make Elly May proud and take a dip!
