Posts to ponder: D.C.'s blogosphere

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Today's is an eclectic collection. We've got posts to make you ponder, posts to help you exercise your brain (something you can do while sitting on the couch) and posts to get you outdoors.

One of our area bloggers has declared it trivia Tuesday so we'll go with that. Here's something for all you English majors (and trivia buffs) out there. Sean's Ramblings asks if given the title and year of the Pulitzer Prize win, you can name the author of 10 books that won the honor.
No prize (expect bragging rights) and no cheating!

The peaches and strawberries are slowly disappearing from the produce section, but no worries. It’s apple season. Metrocurean’s guest blogger offers this roundup of pick-your-own-apple spots in the D.C. region. Did someone say pie?

Caffeine addict alert! Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day. In honor of the day, DC Gastronome offers a few coffee facts. For example, do you know where coffee was first discovered? Ethiopia. How many coffee beans does it take to make a cup of espresso? You'll have to click through and find out.

Over on Greater Greater Washington, David Alpert tackles questions about broken Metrobus fare boxes and electronic display signs at Metro stations.

Want to sample some food truck cuisine but don’t necessarily have the time to chase down your favorite truck? Here’s your chance to catch about 20 of the top food trucks all in one spot. Lunching in the DMV tells us the 2010 Curbside Cook-Off is scheduled for Oct. 7 and 8 in the parking lot of the old Washington Convention Center.

That's it for now. Thanks much for reading and thank you to all the folks that sent in suggestions for new blogs to read. Keep them coming.
