Buddies Obama and Trudeau were spotted yesterday at the Big Rig Brewery in Ottawa, exchanging memories and thoughts over a beer and some bites. Obama has this thing that he brings a smile to your face — even from a Twitter photo from a place and time far away.

In case you are wondering what First Lady Michelle has been up to, she was busy spreading cheer and accepting the Joan Ganz Cooney Award at the Sesame Workshop’s 50th Anniversary Benefit Gala in New York City. And looking super smart and super sassy!

There’s something unexplainable that happens on @SesameStreet, some unique alchemy of aspiration and goodness that just can’t be replicated. That’s why I couldn’t be more honored to celebrate 50 years of Sesame Street tonight.
