Thanksgiving News N' Notes

Sorry for the lack of posts lately - it's been a busy couple weeks.

- Somehow I manage to miss the Silver Spring Thanksgiving Parade every year, and this year was no exception. Here's some photos of the event I found on Flickr. (Photo on right courtesty of WashingtonGardener.)

- Is Silver Spring a "creative outpost"?

- Someone's selling a pair of 1962 & 1963 Blair yearbooks (featuring Goldie Hawn) on eBay. If the bid price seems low, check out the obscene shipping costs.

UPDATE: DAMN! The winning bid for the yearbook was $123.50 (plus the $25.86 shipping!) Someone must be a big Private Benjamin fan.

- Some Silver Spring restaurants were recently featured on the WETA program "Neighborhood Eats!" Mayorga, Mrs. K's Toll House and the Tastee Diner were all visited by the program. It's only on once more, so set your TiVos to record:

Sunday, November 26 2:05AM

- South Silver Spring to become "more walkable".

Have a great Thanksgiving!

The SS parade is re-run tomorrow (Thanksgiving) on NewsChannel 8. Not the same as live - but fun to see esp. for those who were in it and didn't get to see it all.

That WETA Guide special was terrific - wish it was longer and hope there are more.

Sorry to hijack your comments, but what on earth happened this morning about 12:22 AM near Four Corners? Big boom that shook my house, like a massive thunderbolt a little ways away---ten minutes later, a ton of sirens. I live in Woodmoor, northwest side near Colesville.

I'm not a skittish type, but seriously, I jumped out of my chair (the dogs stirred downstairs too) and then I checked to see if a storm was coming in. WTOP has nothing. Never wished I had a police scanner before...

A car exploded at the corner of Dennis Ave & Procter St. I live on Procter St, literally a block from the explosion. If you heard it over at Woodmoor, you can imagine what it sounded like from just a block away. My house shook, and almost our whole neighborhood spilled out onto the street to see what the sound was.

Everyone (including me) in my neighborhood called 911. The car was completely engulfed in flames. It was like something out of a movie.

The firefighters put the fire out, but apparently no one in my neighborhood knows what happened at this point.
