It's the day of Lady Sybil's funeral (which we don't actually get to see) and Lord Grantham is, understandably, in a foul mood. So he takes it out. On basically the whole house. Yes, he's greiving. But he's also acting like a stubborn mule. Let's countdown his fights:  1. The baby's name An inconsolable Branson ("My wife is dead. I'm past help, but thank you," he tells Matthew) announces that he plans to name the baby Sybil. "I want to remember her mother whenever I look at her.

ADVERTORIAL CONTENT In the past few years, real estate has increasingly become an investment option that's difficult to ignore. With moderated pricing and historic financing conditions, the costs associated with acquiring investment properties are within reach of more consumers today than at any point in recent history. At the same time, rental rates are increasing and vacancy rates are dropping, sparked by the additional demand that comes with declines in homeownership. More renters in the market make the potential return on investment properties even more enticing.

The five-story Park Plaza building in Mount Vernon is bustling again, less than two years after a five-alarm fire destroyed the historic structure's interior and displaced tenants — including Donna's, a popular cafe and coffee shop that will not be returning to the building. "We were really clear from minutes after the fire happened that we wanted to be back in this space," said Roger Schulman, president and CEO of the Fund for Educational Excellence, a nonprofit organization that has been in the building for more than a decade.

Bob Sleeper is a man who cannot be fenced in. While many of his friends are city dwellers, he craves the great outdoors. For this reason, he and his wife, Marian, left a large home in suburban Marriottsville in favor of an old — and much smaller — farmhouse in Westminster. Sleeper's first love has always been the land — 5 acres in this instance, with a two-story, 2,700-square-foot bank barn on a knoll. "We downsized the house but upsized the property," said Sleeper, a 60-year-old employee of Constellation Energy.
