2010 Souvenir White House Easter Eggs Now Available

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Just received an email announcing the availability of the 2010 souvenir White House Easter Eggs. The eggs are the same ones used at the White House Easter Egg Roll. So whether or not you can make it to Washington for the Egg Roll you can order your own set of souvenir eggs.

The Easter Egg Roll on the White House South Lawn is one of the most eagerly anticipated spring events in our nation’s capital. Celebrate the tradition with your very own White House Easter Egg. This souvenir egg, made from FSC-certified, U.S. hardwood, comes in four unique colors and includes the stamped signatures of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

You can order the eggs at easter.nationalparks.org or by calling 888-849-7438.

BTW – the picture above is of my 2009 souvenir White House Easter Eggs. I have some White House Easter Eggs going back to the Clinton administration.

Dr. Seuss’ Birthday

Yes its true, yes its true or
so that it seems,
That today’s a big day,
the kind even in dreams,

For all little girls and all little boys
Will wake up bright and early to read with much joy!
And they’ll read. And they’ll read. And when they’ll get to the parts
were their giggles begin and the laughter, it starts
And they’ll giggle and giggle with laughter for sure!
Oh, the noise! Oh, the noise! Oh, the noise! Noise! Noise! Noise!

(and we know that the Grinch would have hated the noise!)

So a big birthday thanks
for the magic and more
Thanks for that Cat in the Hat
and the rest of the score

We loved all your stories
we loved them galore
Let’s sing! And Let’s sing!
And then sing! Sing! Some more!

That’s about as good as it gets as my rhyming’s quite sad
but lets just give some thanks for the fun we’ve all had
Its a big celebration out here on the tubes
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to youse!

Celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday today by taking part in Read Across America Day (March 02, 2010) and encouraging the reading of books.
