This is the start point for the annual “Boo-land Halloween Parade” which will have the kids heading over to Turkey Thicket park to end.

On Monday Meridian Pint (11th and Park Rd, NW) will have a craft & cider happy hour. Halloween arts & crafts will be provided alongside complimentary hot apple cider for the kids. This our third annual event and is sure to be a ton of fun again!”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday afternoon (22 Oct) on the 36 bus our driver announced that starting Monday (27 Oct) all buses would be delayed. He said there were several reasons- all buses could not go above 25 MPH, they could not start moving if anyone was still standing near the driver (like adding money to their Smartrip) and they would have to limit stops to pick up passengers if there were too many people standing. The driver mentioned something about a new contract trying to force the old employees out because they make too much. He also mentioned something about a new 3 strike policy that would automatically turn a violation into two day suspension. Have you heard anything about this? These don’t seem like the worst ideas considering the stories I’ve read on PoPville.”

Divorce in DC – can you recommend lawyers or other resources?:

“Hi all: Has anyone been through a divorce in DC or have a knowledge of the process? City websites have not been useful thus far. It would likely be a No Fault divorce, if I understand the terms correctly. We’ve been married ~2yrs, both live in DC, have no children or joint financial accounts. Only major joint expense is home we purchased in 2009.

As we’re on fairly good terms, I’d like to keep the process as fast and cheap as possible, hence considering mediation and/or No Fault, but I’ve also been advised to first consult w/an expert, and one that has my interests in mind to someone that has my interests in mind. (Plus, its just easier to talk w/a real person sometimes.) Also may want to hire someone to do the paperwork.

So: anyone done this before? Any recs on info resources, lawyers, etc? Tips, things to watch out for? Any help much appreciated. I feel overwhelmed.”
