A great holiday filled with great food!
Did you know that in 1863 President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving Day a holiday? Did you also know that Lobster, seal and swans were on the Pilgrims’ menu for the original Thanksgiving feast? Before you eat your meal, take a little time to learn more about Thanksgiving.
And without drying it out!
Tips for a great turkey in half the time? No, it is not a joke! First buy a better bird, don’t forget to defrost the turkey and don’t carve the turkey right away.
Enjoy the Cold?
One of the best things about the winter is outdoor skating! There are some great places around D.C. like Washington Harbour Ice Rink, Sculpture Garden Rink and Canal Park Ice Rink. View the list for more information.
There are many adoptable Senior Dogs in our area
“Each year, 3.9 million dogs enter shelters and only 35 percent are adopted. The odds are even worse for senior dogs, who are seen as not as desirable as puppies and younger pups. November is dubbed Adopt a Senior Pet Month.”
