Re: How can I find a free form to transfer real estate ownership within the family in DC? #dcrealestate

I’d like to suggest as a general matter that when you are undertaking a transaction involving an asset worth several hundreds of thousands of dollars, very possibly over a million, it is worth spending a tiny, tiny fraction of that amount on a lawyer or other relevant professional to make sure it’s done right.

Re: Can very old rolls of film still be developed?

I have some very old rolls of film – literally decades – and am wondering if there is any possibility of them being still developable (the pictures have already been taken). They have been kept refrigerated for virtually the entire time, if that makes a difference. Are there any photography experts out there who can advise on whether this is hopeless or not? If not hopeless, any advice on who to go to?

Hi Don,
 
I am not an expert, but I developed a roll of film that was sitting in an old camera for years and the pictures came out fine. Why don't you try one roll and see what happens? It was great seeing the pictures of an old trip when I got the photos back.
 
Good luck,

Is there some drop off site in Ward 3 that will be active Sat Feb 5?

----------
Editor's note: DC DPW's Benning Road Transfer Station is open on the first Saturday of each month for drop-off of Household Hazardous Waste -- but if anyone knows of an e-Waste event in Ward 3 this weekend, please post it to the Cleveland Park Listserv. Meanwhile, here's the information from the DPW website about the Saturday drop-off:

We collect household hazardous waste and unwanted electronic equipment every Saturday between 7 am to 2 pm, except holidays at the Benning Road Transfer Station, 3200 Benning Road, NE.  We also accept personal documents to be shredded on the first Saturday of each month.  No documents will be accepted for shredding except on the first Saturday of the month because DPW cannot secure these documents until the shredding contractor is in place.  An additional Household Hazardous Waste/E-Cycling drop-off occurs the Thursday preceding the first Saturday of the month (except holidays), between 10 am and 2 pm.

Re: ISO advice for on-street electric vehicle charging

Josh Foster
 

Agreed, Jim, there's no guarantee of a public parking spot in DC near one's house. I was speculating whether one needs a permit even to charge a car on the street? Also, if one can find a spot within 2 car lengths of ones charger/house, then one can plug in the cable, so that might cover 3-4 spots within reach. If no spot is available, one can wait until one frees up, or find a public charging station or filling station with chargers to top off or allow one short distance travel. Going to be a transition period for this technology where solutions are piecemeal.

The issue is believing you will have a spot when any legally registered vehicle can occupy the spot. In DC wanting to charge your personal vehicle does not qualify to hold that spot.

The maximum length of charging cable is 25 feet from the charger box. If your house is close to the street you can put the box on your house and pull the cable out to the street. If your car would be more than 25 feet from the house then you will want to install a charging box and pedestal on your property (dig up yard and put in an underground wire) and then unreel the cable to your car.


Re: ISO advice for on-street electric vehicle charging

There is a house on the 3500 block of Ordway (don’t know who lives there) where there is a set up like that —a cord goes from the house across the sidewalk to the car, with a rubber cover to keep pedestrians from tripping.

One small hack is getting a wood cover like at a construction site used to cover wires or hoses, to cover the wire where it crosses the sidewalk so people wont trip over it, and to prevent damage to the cable; obviously something that can be easily picked up and moved when your car isn't plugged in.

Judith,
 
I would recommend reaching out to a title company. I work with KVS Title a lot and they are consummate professionals. The attorneys there should be able to help you.

Hi,
All the “free” forms for real estate transfer in DC seem to require joining a service. Maybe I am just missing it. We simply want to transfer the title to our home between two family members. Who can point me to a form? And who can point me to how to record the deed, while I’m at it?
Thank you in advance

Re: ISO advice for on-street electric vehicle charging

Josh Foster
 

Hi Sonya,
 
I am a former DC/CP resident, now living in MD, and we are seeking to to do the same thing. I ran across an organization that can offer some guidance.
https://bit.ly/3GrYEGm (EVConnect.com)
 
There are three levels of chargers - 1,2,3 (1 plugs into standard outlet and will take 8 hours to charge a standard car); 2 needs a special charger box, and takes 1-2 hrs; and 3, I don't think is for residential deployment, a fast charger in 10-20 minutes. Of course, they get progressively more expensive.
 
The maximum length of charging cable is 25 feet from the charger box. If your house is close to the street you can put the box on your house and pull the cable out to the street. If your car would be more than 25 feet from the house then you will want to install a charging box and pedestal on your property (dig up yard and put in an underground wire) and then unreel the cable to your car.
 
One small hack is getting a wood cover like at a construction site used to cover wires or hoses, to cover the wire where it crosses the sidewalk so people wont trip over it, and to prevent damage to the cable; obviously something that can be easily picked up and moved when your car isn't plugged in.
 
In terms of permitting from DCRA, I know that installing a charging box and pedestal will need a permit, even if on your property, and probably a waiver from any historic preservations boards if you're in one? Not sure if permit is needed to charge a car on the street in and of itself, like a parking permit?
 
Also, I would wait until you know what EV car you're going to get before you select the charger box and  pedestal as at this point, as some automakers may have recommended systems. The charger socket that fits into the car is generally standard across cars so that's a uniform choice.
 
Note also that you  probably will want to get a charger box that locks, or go with a company through which you can lock out your charger using an App, otherwise people can pull up and poach power from your system.  Hard to believe they haven't worked out this problem, but apparently they are still working on the security of the charger systems.
 
If you install a level 2 or above (maybe also level 1 too), you will need 2 slots from your fuse box for the charger, so make sure you have extra slots. We are spending $2500 to get a bigger fuse box installed with the extra slots for EV charger, before we even start buying the charger system.
 
Good luck!

FS: 2 tix to Wash Ballet's Swan Lake, 8pm Sat 2/12

Jennie Bradley
 

My sister is looking to sell her two tickets to see Swan Lake at the Kennedy Center, in the wake of her husband's Guard unit being sent to Germany as part of the Ukraine-related troop deployment. The unexpected cancellation of their Valentine's date night can be your gain, if you're interested in tickets to see this lovely show! You also get get a parking pass as part of the lot. Total cost for the two tickets + parking $200 OBO. (Her total cost, excluding service charge, was $200 and they would like to recoup all or most of that.) 

Please contact me if interested and many thanks.

One week only! Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America

Sarah Pokempner
 

 

Opening on Friday, receiving four stars from the Washington Post and a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is "Who We Are:  A Chronicle of Racism in America"(PG-13). Former ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jeffery Robinson had one of the best educations in America. He went to Marquette University and Harvard Law School and has been a trial lawyer for over 40 years. In 2011, Robinson began raising his 13-year-old nephew and, as a Black man raising a Black son, struggled with what to tell his son about racism in America. When he started looking at our nation's history, Robinson was shocked by what he had not known. For the past 10 years, in community centers, concert halls, houses of worship, and conference rooms across America, Robinson has been sharing what he learned. In this film, Robinson faces his largest audience, asking all of us to examine who we are, where we come from, and who we want to be.

“'Who We Are' is ultimately more hopeful than reading about it may sound...(it) is both broad-ranging and deep, covering a history that is political, legal, cultural, economic, psychological, emotional, moral and, in the end, also profoundly personal." -Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post 

Continuing, earning a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and four stars from the Washington Post, is "Drive My Car"(NR). "'Drive My Car" isn’t just about listening, but healing, and the transformative, terrifying, awesome power of art." -Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

"West Side Story"(PG-13), earns four stars from the Washington Post and a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  It also continues. "'West Side Story' is an urgent, utterly beautiful revival."  - Ann Hornaday

Coming February 11:  "Death on the Nile" and "The Worst Person in the World"
