a window display, which is after all only asort of living picture, and must needs follow the generalprinciples of artistic habit. Too little care is given, as a rule, to this necessity otmaking everything fit and harmonize. Druggists havebeen known to use totally dissimilar material in theirdisplays. They would base it on Frogs, perhaps, butwould drag in miniature human figures, or brownies, crsome other incongruous material that would have beenmuch better omitted. Our idea is to use Frogs and onlyFrogs. The Frogs we use are so constructed that theycan be adjusted in all the positions of a human figure.If you want human figures, humanize the Frogs by put-ting them in whatever position you wish. The effectwill be infinitely more amusing, and the material iseasier to get and easier to use. The writer ran across a window display upon one oc-casion that looked for all the world like a kaleidoscopewhen viewed from across the street.

Things to do in Washington DC, with little money?

Question by catpeople_2000: Things to do in Washington DC, with little money?
I will be staying for a week for a 2 day-course, I know it´s a great city and has a lot of museums, but I dont want to be bored with so much history. Please tell me what can I do in Washington DC -besides museums and historical monuments-, I have a whole week. I am not a party person.

Best answer:

Answer by DC Bob
Eat your way around the world. Washington is a true melting pot with residents from around the world, which is reflected on the menus at area restaurants. Forget the chain restaurants you probably have at home. Instead, make like Columbus and discover the city’s global palette. Local favorites include Mexican tapas at Oyamel, Indian at Rasika, Ethiopian at Etete, Italian at Dino and Belgian at Brasserie Beck.

Pack your running shoes or bicycle. With over 200 miles of trails in Washington, jogging and biking are popular activities. Runners interested in taking in the monuments and looping around the Mall should aim for an early morning jog, as the area gets crowded later in the day. Or head to Rock Creek Park, an 1,800-acre maze of beautiful, well-marked trails, stretching 11 miles from the Lincoln Memorial to beyond the Maryland border. A paved path runs from the Kennedy Center through the park. You can also pick up trails near Dupont Circle and the National Zoo.

Go celebrity spotting. L.A. and New York have movie stars and models. In D.C. the power players are the politicos. Keep your eyes peeled and you might spot a few Washington celebrities. Classic power spots include The Palm and Off the Record, the bar in The Hay-Adams Hotel. For a power breakfast, visit Bistro Bis on the Hill or the Four Seasons in Georgetown. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi regularly frequents The Source. Senator Harry Reid is a regular at Westend Bistro by Eric Ripert. And former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was partial to Bombay Club, near the White House.

Tune into the music scene. Jazz legend Duke Ellington was born and raised in Washington and a thriving musical tradition continues with plenty of hot spots to hear live music, particularly along the U Street corridor where Ellington used to play. Bohemian Caverns hosted everyone from Coltrane to Calloway and the subterranean supper club still features jazz bands. Down the street is The Black Cat, whose founders include Foo Fighter Dave Grohl. Modest Mouse, the White Stripes and Jeff Buckley are just a few of the names who have performed at this hipster club. Across town, in Georgetown there’s Blues Alley, the country’s oldest continuing supper club. Check out the schedule in advance as big name acts sell out quickly.

Put your wallet away. Many of D.C.’s sights are free – the Smithsonian museums, the Washington National Cathedral, National Geographic Society, Library of Congress and so many more. But those aren’t the only freebies to be found. Every day, the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage hosts a free performance at 6 p.m. The United States Navy Band performs free concerts throughout the area (check navyband.navy.mil/sched.shtml for the schedule). Tryst Coffeehouse in the lively Adams Morgan neighborhood hosts free jazz nights Monday through Wednesday nights (and free Wi-Fi during the week). Put your bargain hunter hat on and you’ll find there are plenty of free ways to explore the capital.

This is my help from Washington, D.C. United States of America.
Please pick a “Best Answer”, even if it is not mine.
That way we can tell if we really do help people.

Global Traveler Raises Money to Fight Cancer

Yardley, PA (PRWEB) June 07, 2013

Global Travelers annual online charity travel auction raised an impressive $ 95,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. For the third consecutive year, the auction directly benefitted The Leukemia & Lymphoma Societys Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter; 100 percent of the proceeds go toward the fight to end blood cancers.

Among the hotel stays, flights and travel products up for bids, the most hotly bid items included two around-the-world business-class tickets on oneworld, which raised more than $ 10,000 for charity, and 1 million Priority Club Rewards Points, at nearly $ 10,000. Other popular items were round-trip business-class tickets on Brussels Airlines, South African Airways, Etihad Airways, Asiana Airlines and Swiss International Air Lines; and hotels stays at The Address Downtown Dubai, The Peninsula Beverly Hills, The Rittenhouse Hotel and many more.

We are honored and humbled to have raised almost $ 100,000 for LLS, said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. As a member of the Board of Trustees, this cause is near and dear to my heart, and I send my sincere thanks to everyone who bid this year.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (lls.org) is dedicated to finding a cure for blood and lymph cancers. LLS awarded more than $ 750 million in research funding for all blood cancers.

Question by henxinggan: What can you do at the Illinois State Fair that costs little to no money?
I’m looking to try and take the kids this year, depending on how much we might be able to do there. We have free hotels in the area. Is there a place to park that’s cheap/free? What activities could we do?

With more than 100 Carnival Midway and Adventure Village rides at the Illinois State Fair, including the popular Mega Drop, which sends riders on a 130-foot plunge straight to the ground, and Turbo Force, which features two cars of passengers that flip upside down and spin around as the ride completes a full revolution children of all ages will have the time of their lives.

When the sheriff catches gold fever he institutes a new town tax, so the miners and the “Gold Digger” are forced to stake their claim and win the High Diving Jamboree. What follows is a hilarious story complemented by 3 meter and springboard diving, comedy, clown diving and a finale high dive from over 70 feet in the air.
