Hi Sarah,
 
I took my cat to Muddy Branch in Gaithersburg. Had good experiences with them. It takes me 30 minutes driving when there is no traffic. They squeeze me in when I need them to and the vet called specialists to get other opinions on my cat. They went above and beyond.
 
Good luck,
 
Helen


Do You Get the Economist? Apparently I Can't

Nancy Bekavac
 

Dear Fellow USPS Customers,
 
Beginning about six months ago, my copy of The Economist stopped coming on Saturday, or Monday, and sometimes slipped to Tuesday or Wednesday. Then, it just stopped coming AT ALL to my large building on Devonshire Place. I have contacted The Economist. They gave me several issues of credit, checked the address and assured me it would be coming.
 
Are you surprised IT IS NOT COMING AT ALL. I have spoken with the building attendants who sort the mail. They have not seen it for several weeks. I note some other subscription holders have gotten theirs. I am green with envy. No, digital is not enough.
 
Ideas? Suggestions? Targeted complaints?
 
I have asked, respectfully, if The Economist would like to take over USPS, but so far, no response.
 
Do I sound exhausted and upset? I know the fact that I get SOME mail and SOME publications some of the time makes me what amounts to a favored customer. in the Friendship Heights Post Office delivery area. But I want more. I want regular, dependable, timely delivery of a publication I already overpay for.
 
Yours in exasperation,
 
Nancy

Re: ISO covid vaccine booster - easy experience at Ward 3 COVID Center

wgorlick
 

Thank you Louise for highlighting the Ward 3 Covid Center at Friendship Heights. I went there in the late afternoon on Saturday (it was open until 8pm on Saturday), and the Ward 3 Covid Center was just as you describe. There were about 4 nurses there waiting to give vaccines to the public, and just one or two other patients besides me. 

My only quibble is that it seemed a bit silly that upon entering the Ward 3 Covid Center, they had each patient fill out a long form by hand, and then, once that was completed, the patient would hand the paper copy to the clerks who then basically had to ask each person about spelling and things like that on the handwritten form the patient had just filled out, with the clerk then laboriously entering that same information on their laptops. While I have no specific knowledge, my hunch is that it is likely costing DC taxpayers a few thousand dollars each day to run this Covid center with so many trained medical personnel and additional clerks on duty (and there is one such Covid center in each Ward), so it might be more efficient to just have each patient fill out the information on an iPad or laptop. But this is just a minor quibble, and the whole process took less than 10 minutes. It was a far better experience than going to, say, a CVS where I have not had good luck and it has been the case that at a CVS there is often just one overworked nurse who is behind schedule and where my experience has been that the patients typically wait long after their appointed time to actually see the CVS medical specialist.

The speed, uncrowded nature, and friendly atmosphere of the Ward 3 Covid Center will make this my preferred option for any further booster shots that may be needed if it remains open for such a purpose.  Thank you again for highlighting this useful service in Ward 3.

Still Life with Robin: Our Oscar-Worthy Town - The Sequel

Cleveland Park Editor
 

by Peggy Robin

Last week's "Still Life with Robin" column listed more than a dozen movies set in DC -- many of them multiple-Oscar winners or at least multiple nominees --followed by another half-dozen that were snubbed at the Oscars but still managed to show off our highly cinematic city.

In that column I admitted it was an incomplete list -- and I wasn't wrong! Quite a few of you wrote in to tell me about this or that good one that should have been included.

So here's my make-up column with some of the very best movies set in DC that either were or shoulda been contenders.  This time around, I haven't looked up all the stats on which ones snagged a stauette -- or even a nomination -- or were shamefully overlooked -- just noted a few of the more prominent winners. If you want the full picture, there's always IMDB.

And now.....(deep announcer voice): Presenting TWELVE Award-Worthy Movies Set in or Near DC (this time in alphabetical order):

Absolute Power (1997). Clint Eastwood stars in this thriller of murder and political intrigue. A sexually rapacious and easily manipulated President is caught up in a conspiracy to cover up a murder. Some critics dismissed it at the time as unbelievable that such a figure of such evil, combined with such stupidity, could ever be elected to to the highest office.

 

Air Force One (1997). Harrison Ford is a macho man/war hero former pilot and now President. A quarter of a century ago, this was boffo stuff at the box office, mainly because Ford was so plausible as man-of-action President and decorated flier. Meanwhile, back In Real Life, actor Harrison Ford has had no less than six reported incidents due to pilot error, including two crashes.

 

Arlington Road ((1999). OK, Arlington Road's in Bethesda, not in DC -- but it still counts! The main character is a college professor who starts to suspect that his friendly new neighbors just might be terrorists. Question: Even in 1999, was the salary of a single-parent professor enough to afford a detached house in Bethesda?

 

Born Yesterday (1950). If you have time to see just one of these movies, make it this one. Bubbly and sparkling, but with some sharp political ribs showing through, Born Yesterday is a comedy about a would-be power couple, a corrupt scrap-metal dealer/tycoon and his naive but not-so-dumb blonde mistress, played by Billie Holliday in a Best Actress-winning performance, who move to Washington with the aim of becoming members of the power elite. When the tycoon hires a journalist to try to teach his rough-edged mistress the manners and airs of Washington high society, he is shocked to discover that she has learned far more than how to talk "couth": she's learned far too much about his corrupt business dealings -- and has learned she has the power to do something about it, too.

 

Enemy of the State (1998). Will Smith (does that name ring a bell?) plays a young Washington lawyer who gets entangled  in a conspiracy to murder a congressperson and ends up on the run as the main suspect. Of course, the handsome and resourceful leading man is no patsy, and does whatever he needs to do to avoid capture and eventually clear his name. Smith won two awards (neither of them Oscars) for the role: Favorite Actor in an Action/Adventure Film from Blockbuster Entertainment, and Outstanding Lead Actor in the NAACP's Images Awards for 1999.  

 

In the Line of Fire (1993). Clint Eastwood plays a secret service agent on the JFK detail on that fatal day in Dallas - and he's been wracked with guilt ever since -- and has to track down a new threat to the president's life. Eastwood sticks to his usual gruff, wooden, man-of-few-words persona; the real scene-stealer here is John Malkovich, madly chewing the scenery as the insidious assassin who taunts and torments the secret service agent about his past failure to save the president's life. 

 

Jackie (2016). Spend a bit under two hours with a depressed and sometimes suicidal (but always beautiful) Jackie Kennedy, as embodied by Natalie Portman, as she reminisces about her husband's murder, her stillbirths and miscarriages, and other times gone by. Does this sound like a good way to pass an evening? Well, that may be why I passed on it -- but it did win Best Costume Design at the BAFTAs (British equivalent of the Oscars). 


Die Hard 2 (1990). If you loved the original "Die Hard," (1988), you might enjoy this DC-adjacent sequel, set mainly at Dulles Airport (Northern VA), which has its hero, John McLain, single-handedly battling some bad guys who have taken over air traffic control and are keeping dozens of planes in the air. The gaping plot holes are not the only trouble with DH2 - it's also got a bunch of small but annoying production errors - most notably when McLain rushes to a pay phone (for those of you in Gen Z, it looks like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payphone) that is emblazoned with the logo "Pacific Bell," a phone company you would not have found, back in those days, anyplace east of the Pacific time zone. 

 

Slam (1998) is a movie set in real locations around DC, from the poorest projects (fictionalized with the nickname "Dodge City") to the real DC jail and courthouse, and on to one of the ritziest parts of town - our own Cleveland Park. A poor boy but talented rapper is caught up in a cycle of drug violence but wants to break free. The film won a number of prestigious awards for independent filmmaking.

 

St. Elmo’s Fire (1985). The "brat pack" actors play recent Georgetown grads now making their way in the working world of Washington, DC. There's a lot about jobs, apartments, hookups, commitment and marriage -- all bound up in the usual '80s angst. Plus a lot of drinking at their favorite hangout, St. Elmo's bar -- and an awful lot of talk. If you like most of John Hughes's body of work (The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, et. al.) you'll probably like this one -- though it was not directed by Hughes but by Joel Schumacher.

 

Strangers on a Train (1951). Hitchcock's clever crime game makes DC mansions and streets seem gloomy and sinister -- still, not quite as menacing as the atmosphere at the small town amusement park where much of the non-DC part of the action takes place. While the movie is a dark and cynical take on life in and out of the nation's capital, the original novel by Patricia Highsmith is even darker and more sinister yet

 

Thank You for Smoking (2005). Can you make a funny movie about a morally bankrupt but sometimes charming lobbyist for Big Tobacco? Author (and former Cleveland Park resident) Christopher Buckley managed to pull it off in the book,, but whether the movie succeeded.....you be the judge.

Palette Dome Cuisine April 6, 2022
Chef's Choice Wednesday Meals Weekly Update

April. Hope you survived April Fools’ Day, and now enjoying Cherry Blossoms Festival, some time at the fully open farmer's market, a hike in nature, backyard and pot planting or just some backyard sunbathing. The balance between sun, shade, warmth and cold is one that we much appreciate here in Palette Dome Cuisine, as it also marks a time of abundance in the markets, full of local fresh produce and herbs.

For us, this weekend is all about the garden - planting and seeding those early crops, filling the pots with blooming and fragrant annuals, and getting close to nature once again.

Enjoy the abundance of activities around DC this weekend, but do not forget your meal prep for the week. We will be there to help you with those several extra items you really do not want to spend the time on - let us do it for you!

Our menu for the week is full spring, and we hope you like the new "players". Our biggest spring marker is asparagus, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do, as it is all over our menu! From our vegan pasta primavera, to the blackened salmon that gets asparagus for a side, to the salmon asparagus quiche, all the way to a creamy yet dairy free asparagus soup. Did we say we like asparagus yet?

Wednesday Meals order cut-off time for meals is Tuesday 7PM.

We are a small batch production company, and we run out of items. Please remember to order as early as you can: our popular items are usually out of stock by Monday afternoon. Try to place your order prior for full product availability.

  • Soups. Spring classics are available: A vegetarian classic French leek potato soup, a springy celery root soup, and a vegan roasted asparagus soup.

  • Fish: Salmon. Blackened Salmon is here in its spring version with roasted sweet potato and seared asparagus.

  • Poultry: Chicken Shawarma is here, and served with hummus, tahini, a salad and some roasted vegetable. This is a classic Mediterranean dish for the spice lovers.
  • Beef: a classic spaghetti Bolognese is always a favorite, especially when enriched with root vegetable and served with GF pasta. For spring we threw some peas into the mix!
  •  A fresh salad is an add-on you can always include with your meal. For a nominal up-charge you get a healthy appetizer or a crunchy side that makes any meal wholesome. Try our kale salad for added power greens with every meal.

Re: I need an emergency consultation on planting azaleas in front of my house.

Dan,
 
My view is that in nature plant rarely grow in rows. Staggered is more natural. 
 
Happy planting!

We bought eight azalea bushes at Johnson's today to plant in front of my house, where we had some overgrown junipers removed in the fall.
But the two decisionmakers in the house have divergent views about how to plant them: All in a row? Or staggered, in two rows.
The two empty spaces are each about 6' deep and 7-8' wide. The azaleas are supposed to be three feet apart.
There are complications, in that there are two very pretty hinoki cypress bushes on either side of the walk that would probably need to be removed if we planted them all in a row (which would, however, let us reclaim that space for the lawn.(
Are there any amateur or expert landscapers out there who could help us decide in the next day or two?

2000 Toyota Camry for sale - $1,000

wgorlick
 

I was planning to donate my 2000 Toyota Camry 4 door, 4-cylinder car with 126,500 miles to charity, but with the car shortage, we thought we would first offer it to someone in the community who might have an interest in purchasing it. The car runs perfectly and is accident-free. The only reason I am selling the car is that I inherited a car from a family member.  

The only issue that I believe a new owner would need to resolve immediately are the front door handles, as the driver side door handle is broken from the inside, and the passenger side door handle is broken from the outside. I have seen door handle replacement parts sold on Amazon for just a little over $10 -- so if you are handy, this isn't a big problem, and there are Youtube videos on how to fix this problem. Other than that, there are some issues that I don't think need immediate attention. This includes the fact that there is likely a small oil leak (I add one quart of oil every six months or so, the aircon works well but only when the fan is set at maximum (on the highway, the aircon works perfectly well even if the fan is at a low setting), the rear bumper has some cosmetic damage and there are some scrapes and small dents as would be expected of a car that age. A small amount of water gets into the trunk in a heavy rain storm through the rear taillights and they should probably be sealed.

Other than those issues, I can't really think of anything that is wrong with the car, but you would be welcome to come and check it out. The car last passed inspection in May 2021, and that inspection sticker is good until May 2023 (please check with DMV to confirm, but my understanding is that the transfer of title to someone else in the District does not void the existing inspection sticker). Consumer Reports consistently rates the Toyota Camrys from this period as having excellent reliability, and that is certainly our experience. We have only replaced tires, brake pads, and the exhaust system over the past 20 years, nothing else.

The price is $1,000 sold as is, I don't like to bargain over these things so I will just take the charitable tax deduction if I can't sell it.  I would prefer that whoever might purchase the car take it to their mechanic first for a thorough inspection.
