Sour cherries & bee stings: 5 fab blogs

By Washington Post editors
Washington Post editors

Good afternoon.

We begin today's post with a haiku from Post Local Facebook fan Hayden Hurst . Hurst submitted this piece for our Summer Haiku contest. (Details on Post Local's Facebook fan page. Contest ends Friday.)

Boiling heat outside
It's bad, but at least it's not
Snowmageddon again.

Thanks Hayden!

Now for today's fab five blogs.

I am a sucker for anything that involves sour cherries. Not Derby Pie comes to my rescue with a recipe for a sour cherry almond torte. Now, who'd like to bake one and drop it by my office?

Prince of Petworth has the scoop on bike clinics at local farmer’s markets. Just think how “green” you’ll be if you ride your bike to buy locally grown produce.

How to avoid summer bites and stings, what to do if you do get bit or stung, and when to know if it’s time to go to the hospital if you get one if above mentioned happens. All courtesy of Lifehacker.

Culture Mob has a list of outdoor movie nights around the D.C. region. Record high temperatures? A severe thunderstorm watch? Maybe file this one away for when it gets a bit cooler.

O Say Can You See? the blog of the National Museum of American History offers some smart advice on how to send a good, “bad” comment. (Yes indeed, there is such a thing.)

Happy Belated Birthday. Dining in D.C. is three! Congrats and many happy blogging returns.

Thanks for reading. Just a quick note: Fab five blogs usually published in the afternoon on Lori's AM BUZZ will be on temporary hiatus (I'll be away for a bit), but we'll resume posting after the July 4th holiday.
