Circle of Useful Knowledge

My wife came into an odd book by this title, self-published in 1888 and filled with weird recipes for cocktails mixed in 10-gallon quantities, household hints, rules of thumb, home remedies, etc. It uses units of measure and ingredients that are obscure or obsolete today, has some laughably bad medicine, and is a view into a different world in general. I'm blogging a couple of entries from it every day.

Anglofilmia

After realizing I retain historical dates, facts and context a lot more easily if it's presented to me visually, I compiled a list of films related to British history (covering pre-history to The Future) and sorted them chronologically. Now, we're working our way through the list, and blogging about it.
