D.C.'s priciest house? 5 fun blog posts

Happy Tuesday!

Today we've got: posh houses and rich presidents. Did you know that starting tonight you'll be able to see four planets in the skies over D.C.? You do now. Read on for details.

Got a few million to spare? If so, you can buy what Georgetown Dish is billing as D.C.’s most expensive house (note: one of our eagle-eyed editors did find a house worth more, but it's not currently on the market.) If you don’t have $19.5 million available, you can at least see what the place looks like. Did we mention is has five bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a 12-car garage. Plenty of room for the in-laws!

The Wash Cycle takes on the question of whether cyclists should be licensed. And argues that “ … if safer streets are the goal, a more stringent driver's licensing process and higher license retention threshold would be a better way to achieve it.”

DC Like a Local poses this question: Just how many Smithsonian museums are there? Answer: a lot. Sure you might know about the biggies – Air and Space, American History -- but there are some fabulous smaller Smithsonians that are well worth a visit.

A fun post from the blog Budgets are Sexy on U.S. presidents and their net worth (HT: The Atlantic) Who knew George Washington was loaded?

The planets are aligning, reports The Natural Capital blog. For a brief time, you can see not one, not two, but four planets in the evening sky. Tonight through Friday, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Saturn will be lined up in the skies over D.C. Don’t have a telescope or binoculars? No worries: there’s also a special Astronomy Night on the Mall on Thursday.
