Steven B has come up with a nice pic of the Lincoln Sitting Room from around 2006. Hurray!
I’ve started a special thread over at White House Fanatics on Facebook regarding movies and the president. If you live in near NYC, DC, or LA, please take a look.
Board with the olive drab of the original, I’ve spent another 12 minutes updating the look of the blog. Let me know if you think it’s too much.
An anonymous tip pointed me in the direction of Duron paint as the source of the White House’s “whisper white” exterior paint. This enabled me to dig up a couple of old articles and prompted me to change the answer to the question asked some time ago about it.
Today is Super Bowl Sunday. With football gradually taking over from baseball as the national past time, how long will it be before the president of the United States starts flipping the Super Bowl coin rather than (or in addition to) throwing out the first baseball of the season?
Ford was a big football fan. Did he ever preside over the first football game of the season?
I ran across a curiosity a couple of weeks ago and haven’t satisfied it yet. Today, I googled it again and came upon a blog post that actually phrases it in reference to presidents. I know that in “the old days” many people slept sitting up because they thought it was healthier, and it was so common that beds were built quite short. But when did it start and when did it end?
Specifically, which presidents would have slept sitting up and which would have slept flat?
Freshened the look of the site for 2008 with a different color scheme and border. You may need to refresh some pages to see the changes.
