100% rain today and 100% chance of rain tomorrow. El Nino visits again.
Really glad I was able to sit in on a lecture by Ian Simmonds held yesterday in Houston at the Museum of Fine Arts • Bayou Bend Kilroy Center on his recent research on cut glass made in New York in the mid-nineteenth century. Fascinating.

Hello there, obviously this is a heartbreaker but have you ever seen another double colored mineral water? (Congress & Empire Spring Co Saratoga NY) The top is the standard teal green and the rest is a weird orange amber. Certainly a glasshouse screw up but I’m just curious if there are more of these out there. – Corey Hohnerlein
