Singer-songwriter Betty Ladas made the move from Nashville to Greenbelt just a year ago, and seems to be settling in just fine.   Now she can see plenty of her grandchildren, and perform at the New Deal on the third Thursday of the month.  Nice life!  I heard her perform at a recent Open Mic hosted […]

The Tiny House Documentary

Researching smaller homes recently put tiny houses on my radar, so when I noticed the documentary “Tiny” at DC’s Environmental Film Festival I made a point to see it. The film follows Christopher Smith and his girlfriend and fellow filmmaker Merete Mueller, as they built a 124-square foot home in the countryside outside Denver.  Because […]
