If you live in a place that will have a surplus of snow within the next few months—like I do—you just might want to try this old time method of cleaning area rugs. Apparently, it works for wool, cotton and polyester rugs. Note: You’ll want to use DRY snow for this procedure, not the soggy stuff. I’d never be brave enough to try this!
Ironic Sans: At 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue →
As George Bush prepares to move out of the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC, and Barack Obama prepares to move in, I thought I’d take a virtual trip around the country and see what’s going on at other locations with the same address. The following photos come via Google Street View: Chortle

ThinkGeek :: Botanicalls DIY Plant Twitter Kit →
Once the kit is assembled, connect it to the Internet through the built-in ethernet jack, jam the leads into the plant’s soil, and subscribe to the plant’s twitter feed.

Apparently the glue started to deteriorate – possibly from the heat of the...
