National Arboretum: Aug 2, 2008

Posted by scottstead on Aug 24, 2008 in Vlog

When I get an itching for the outdoors, fortunately we’ve got the National Arboretum in our backyard here in D.C. Just off of Route 50 in North East Washington, the Arboretum is a great way to get away from the concrete jungle and get back in sync with nature for a bit. This trip yielded the usual stop at the koi pond, a jaunt through the Bonsai and Penjing Museum, a stop at the old Capitol columns, and a good look at the Youth Garden (complete with an interview with Anne Nourse one of the wonderful volunteers at the National Arboretum). Thank you Anne for your time!

Screen On The Green 2008

Posted by scottstead on Jul 14, 2008 in Life, Movies, Vlog

Thousands, yes thousands, converge on the national mall every year for one of my favorite events – HBO Presents: Screen On The Green. KFC, wine, fresh baked muffins, Triscuits and freshly baked bread are all on the menu. Puppies, children, families, staffers, college students, the old and the young have all dug out their blankets and picnic baskets, lawn chairs and bug spray to participate. Great films and the great outdoors, you truly can't beat it.
