Banish junk mail: Posts from blog world

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Not the nicest of days, but just remember: We need the rain. It's been an “abnormallly dry” year, so every raindrop counts. There's plenty in the D.C. area blogosphere to distract you from the gray. Ever wonder what our Founding Fathers might have thought about Facebook? Then check out The Foggy Dew's post. Hungry? The Bitten Word has a tasty recipe for sweet and spicy fried peach pies. Mmmm. And under useful, LifeHacker has some recommendations for getting rid of junk mail.

A trip back in history. The Foggy Dew shares some “historical” Facebook updates.

From Life Hacker – the best sites and phone numbers for banishing junk mail from your mailbox.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of “It’s Academic,” the long-running television quiz show in which teams of high school students compete against each other, Giant is sponsoring a reusable bag design contest open to high school students around the D.C. area. In addition to having their artwork featured on tote bags, Congress Heights on the Rise reports the winning students will receive scholarship money.

Have old cellphones or spent printer cartridges lying around? With one stop, you can do two good deeds. Rockville Central reports that you can help Twinbrook Elementary raise money by participating in their E-recycle fundraiser.

How about some sweet and spicy fried peach pies to take the gloom away? The Bitten Word is happy to tell you how to make them. (Or you can just look at the pictures and drool.)

O Say Can You See?, the blog of the National Museum of American History, is looking for feedback. Take a few minutes to fill out their survey and you could win a copy of "The Star Spangled Banner: The Making of an American Icon."
