Episode 5
Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetery

I had the oppurtunity to attend the laying of the wreath at Arlington National Cemetery this year. It's really awesome to see all of the color guards and the Marine band in one place. Arlington Cemetery is always an impressive place and it takes on a special significance on the day that we honor our military veterans

Episode 4 The Bowie Baysox

I was excited about the beginning of baseball season this spring. I went to the MLB Washington Nationals home opener but was really disappointed. The tickets were too expensive, the stadium was run down and the lines were way too long. Thankfully I found out that the DC Metro area has a bunch of great Minor League teams and recently got the chance to enjoy baseball the way it was meant to be.

Episode 3 Washington Monument Take 2

I returned ,early this time, to the Washington Monument and was able to get a "golden ticket" (it was actually more gray colored). I went up inside and was able to film some of the city from up high.

Episode 2 The Washington Monument

Welcome back! Washington is a city of great beauty and architecture. I hope to be able to show you some of these great buildings and I thought I would start with one of the most well known.

Episode 1 The Intro

Welcome to the very first installment of "Hit The Bricks", my video blog or vlog. Vlogging has grown like wild fire over the last few years as editing software has become incredibly "dummy-proof". I never would have thought that I could put togethor a "show" like this, but thanks to some great help from web sites like Freevlog and the inspiration of others like
Roxanne Darling, Josh Leo and Steve Garfield, this was much easier than expected (and a lot of fun!) So be sure to check back for more fun installments of "Hit The Bricks".
