It would feel a bit strange to make a big, loud announcement about the new Charles E. Miller Branch Library & Historical Center, which opened in Ellicott City (about 5 minutes away from The Wayside Inn) on December 17th, 2011, so we’re making this quiet, unassuming post to share some…

Hate Those Holiday Shopping Lines?
