Do You Know How Much You Love Cheese?

We all love cheese, right?  I haven't met many who don't enjoy a melt in your mouth parm or a creamy mouthful of brie with a warm and crusty baguette.  This is for all of you.

Potsherds (broken pieces of pottery) found in archaeological digs in Northern Europe have revealed evidence of cheese making in that part of the world as early as 6000BC.  As a naturally preserved source of protein and fat, various cheeses have nourished much of Europe, the Middle East, and other parts of the world for many thousands of years.  This is something that cannot be ignored when questioning whether or not cheese is "good for you" or if it fits into your dietary regimine.  Keep an open mind.

Red and Blue Line Metro Stations Closing This Weekend

(WUSA) -- Two sections of two separate Metro lines will close this weekend, affecting thousands of commuters on the Red and Blue lines.

The biggest issue will be on the Red Line. There will be no service between the Rockville and Bethesda stations. That will close the Twinbrook, White Flint, Grosvenor-Strathmore, and Medical Center stations. The closure begins at 10:00pm Friday (August 5) and will last through Sunday night. Regular service should be restored for the Monday morning commute (August 8).

Metro will operate free shuttle buses between all of the affected stations. There will also be an express shuttle bus operating between the Rockville and Bethesda. Riders should add about 45 minutes to get through the closure. Red line service will operate normally between Bethesda, downtown Washington, and Glenmont.
