I created the Hunt Country Lifestyle video series to allow a glimpse into a lifestyle many residents of Loudoun County rarely see.
huntcountrylife.com Within minutes after Loudoun County families received the automated robocall this past Thursday morning due to the Coronavirus pandemic, massive lines begin to form at every major grocery and retail store in the area. With a blink of an eye, our Loudoun County small businesses owners saw a drastic d...
If you cant find a local store to purchase rubbing alcohol, sanitizer or Lysol household cleaner products... why not make your own? With concerns of the flu and coronavirus all across the country... It didn't take me long to think of what my Grandmother did to keep her house clean before these products hit the market years ago.
My Hubbie is from Jamaica and they use RUM FOR EVERYTHING.... household medicine, cleaning and recreation! For my friends who consume alcoholic beverages often, maybe there is another alcohol with a higher alcohol content to use during this sanitizer shortage... but for right now... I am using Rum. The recommended alcohol level for homemade remedies suggest above 60%... this brand of Rum offers 63%.
First of all, I purchased a large "car wash" style spray bottle for my household cleaning solution. The next thing I did was purchases multiple travel size pouches to store small "on the go" solution. I provided what I am doing instead of chasing products all of Loudoun County.
HAND SANITIZER SOLUTION: I used a 16 oz. mason jar for this solution. Directions: Fill half the mason jar with Aloe Vera, two table spoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice (to help mask the alcohol rum odor), and filled the remaining half of the mason jar with Wray & Newphew LTD. Jamaican Rum. After adding the solution... I used a spoon to mix and pour the solution in the on the go pouches. I will use this mixture while I travel around and when soap and water is not available.
HOUSEHOLD CLEANER SOLUTION: I added a full bottle of Rum in the "car wash" spray bottle with two fresh squeezed lemons. I plan to use this solution with paper towels to clean my home as usual in the place of Lysol wipes and spray.
NOTE: I created my own sterile wipes by tearing paper towels and spraying them with the household solution and stored them in a separate mason jar with a lid in my pantry.

Hunt Country Stable Tour at Chestnut Run Farm
[05/24/19] Peter Leonard-Morgan you won 4 tickets to The 60th Anniversary of The Hunt Country Stable Tour from Hunt Country Life!
Do you plan on attending The Hunt Country Stable Tour this weekend and still do not have tickets? You're in luck! On Friday at 5:00 p.m., Hunt Country Life will be giving away 4 FREE TICKETS "ON FACEBOOK" to four individuals who answer the following question.
"What do you enjoy the most about living in Hunt Country?"
Allow me to introduce you to country living at its finest! When the current owners purchased Stonyhurst, the house was considerably run down. Commissioning the Washington D.C. firm of Donald Lococo Architects, they lovingly and carefully returned it to its original splendor while at the same time modernizing the underlying infrastructure. In the process, the renovation garnered two awards from the American Institute of Architecture. Meanwhile, Rosemary R. Howe Interiors, also of Washington D.C., was brought in to faithfully redesign the inside in such a way as to retain the character of this lovely old house while infusing it with twenty first century accoutrements. What we see today is a delightful American Colonial Revival Country Farmhouse, in pristine condition, centered on a large parcel of rolling land within a much sought after part of Virginia, yet within easy reach of the nation~s capital. It is ideally suited for both equestrian pursuits and outdoors activities, as a principal residence or weekend escape. Middleburg is the fox hunting capital of America. Visit NicoletteBoxe.com for details. 22941 FOXCROFT RD MIDDLEBURG, VA 20117 $4,425,000 3 BEDS 3 BATHS
Get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the grandeur of some of the finest equestrian facilities known to the world this Memorial Day Weekend! BUY TICKETS ONLINE AND SAVE!
On this spiritual day of Easter weekend, I would like to direct your attention to a unique fundraiser which will provide financial support for Trinity Episcopal Church and the community in Upperville, Virginia. On Memorial Day weekend in Loudoun County, most families finalize plans to share their favorite entrees by hosting meticulously well planned Memorial Day parties with family and close friends or jump-start Summer vacation plans to visit a nearby destination. I would like to share how I plan to spend a day with my family this upcoming Memorial Day weekend visiting the farms on The Hunt Country Stable Tour. The Hunt Country Stable Tour, formerly known as “The Hunt Country Farm-Estate Tour ”, was established by George and Kitty Slater (their daughter Anne can be seen in the video), members of Trinity Episcopal Church in Upperville including Mr. Paul Mellon and his wife Rachel “Bunny” Mellon. The Hunt Country Stable Tour is now celebrating its 60th Year Anniversary featuring the farms within Loudoun County with the sole purpose of raising funds for Trinity Episcopal Church, the Upperville community and to extend support to outreach programs, natural disasters nationally and abroad.
If you have not finalized your Memorial Day Weekend plans to date, I highly recommend visiting The Hunt Country Stable Tour. Just in case you are eager to see more about this historic event, please take a moment to watch as I visit with Mr. Gray and Anne Coyner (Trinity Episcopal), Mary Ann Ghadban (Owner of Chestnut Run Farm Eventing), and Kat Gemmer (Hunt Country Stable Tour Chair), all while giving a “sneak peak" of Mary Ann's Chestnut Run Farm.
If you visited a farm during The Hunt Country Stable Tour over the recent years, please provide a comment for the Hunt Country Life audience to share your memories. I look forward to seeing you on Memorial Day Weekend to hear in person what you think about the 60th year celebration next month!
Special thanks to: Trinity Episcopal Church, Mr. & Mrs. Arthur "Gray" Coyner, Mrs. Mary Ann Ghadban-Owner of Chestnut Run Farm, Mrs. Kat Gemmer- Chair (The Hunt Country Stable Tour), Hunt Country Sotheby's International Realty for supporting me and The Hunt Country Stable Tour and last but not least Alimond Photography for creating a compelling video to share this historic event.
So much is going on behind the scenes at Hunt Country Life! Thanks to your positive feedback and subscribers, I've decided to create a new website and blog to share unique stories and events in Hunt Country. Stay tuned!
