Old School Thursday: Enjoy Your Quiet July Edition

As fitting for the middle of July, today’s just not very busy. Which is nice, since that means you can give your full attention to celebrating National Corn Fritters Day.

In other news, today in 1827, Josiah Spode II, the inventor of Spode porcelain, died. His porcelain became the standard for English bone china – a standard that endured for long enough that I got a Spode cake plate as a wedding gift. It’s very pretty.

And that’s about it for “other news.” We haven’t had a day this quiet in weeks.
