Presidential food facts: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani
Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Is it my imagination or are people in an extra good mood today? Guess that's what a 70+ degree day will do for an area starved for sunshine and warm weather. Add the fact that it's a three day weekend -- what's not to love?

Just in time for Presidents Day weekend, Food & Think presents presidential food facts. Can you name the first (almost) vegan ex-president?

Interested in being part of the National Marathon, but not necessarily in running the 26-mile course? Then consider volunteering. The Hill is Home has details on how.

The Great Backyard Bird Count takes place this month and you can help. The Natural Capital offers some information on how you can take part. Feb. 18-21, simply glance out your door and see who's perched in your back yard. Then, enter your information at the GBBC Web site. Also, here are some pictures of some of the suspects you might spot.

An excellent "outreach" suggestion from Susie's Budget and Policy Corner for when you're hosting or promoting an event.

Love this little cartoon about how D.C. area residents know that spring is on the way. Thanks to All Life is Local.

That's it for now. Have a great weekend. And I'll be back on Tuesday with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere.
