It's Friday, Jan. 18, National Gourmet Coffee Day. Happy birthday to author A.A. Milne (1882-1956), whose 'Winnie the Pooh' books were inspired by his son's stuffed animals. Today in 1803, President Jefferson pressed Congress for money to fund Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery. The expedition eventually cost about $2,500 (the biggest expense was for gifts to native tribes along the route). That comes to less than $100,000 in today's dollars. Expect rain, lots of it, a southeast wind and a high in the upper 40s. Here are a few things to do after you've had a couple cups of coffee today:




• Hear Clackamas Community College President Tim Cook give his State of the College speech, 8 a.m., Harmony Community Campus, Harmony West community room, 7738 S.E. Harmony Road, Milwaukie. www.clackamas.edu

• Hit the brakes to see the first Children's Dream Racer given to a West Coast hospital, 10 to 11 a.m., Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, 2801 N. Gantenbein Ave. www.lhs.org

• Talk about taxes at the City Club of Portland with former legislators Vicki Berger and Dave Hunt, 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., The Sentinel Hotel, 614 S.W. 11th Ave. www.pdxcityclub.org/calendar/?eid=10810

• See the opening of a new exhibit by the Living School of Art, 5 to 6:30 p.m., Portland Children's Museum, 4015 S.W. Canyon Road. www.portlandcm.org
