Major Dad

My father is the greatest supporter I’ve ever had. I have been blessed with his unconditional love, and would like to take a second to acknowledge him.
Major Dad, I love you thank you for everything!


American Public Works Assn. Award applauds exception management, operation and maintenance
Norfolk, VA – The American Public Works Association has named Harvey Howard, Norfolk waste management superintendent, its 2014 Professional Manager of the Year – Solid Waste Award winner. The award recognizes exceptional management, operation and maintenance of public sector solid waste operations.
“Harvey Howard is an exceptional leader and manager, who has done a wonderful job making waste collection in the City of Norfolk safe, efficient and responsive for our residents,” said John Keifer, Director of Public Works.
Harvey Howard joined the City of Norfolk as Superintendent of Waste Management in September 2011. Harvey oversees a $20 million budget and is responsible for the operations and coordination of the City’s refuse, yard waste, recycling and bulk waste. Harvey regularly meets with residents, civic organizations, policy makers and regional organizations.
Harvey has more than 20 years of experience in the waste management field. Prior to joining the City of Norfolk, Harvey served as the Solid Waste-Fleet Maintenance Services Superintendent for Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
The American Public Works Association has more than 28,000 members worldwide. Harvey will receive the APWA’s Professional Manager of the Year – Solid Waste Award at the 2014 International Public Works Congress and Exposition in Toronto, Ontario later this year.

I came thirsty, and left Hungry for more

Me: OOH What is that cool place?

Sister: Oh! Mom says we don’t go there, because its too young and cool.

Me: Can we go back to the place where the tattooed people where hanging out the Window?


One of the many reasons to Visit Norfolk isn’t only because my parents live there, but because it is a very cool town.


Found an awesome new bar, The Field Guide


Then found out it was a restaurant too.


The Field Guide is located on Granby Street in Downtown Norfolk.


The service is Killer; the people are good looking, and the bathrooms are clean.
