I'm interested in scads of topics, and it seems I'm always running into interesting tidbits. I'd like to share some with you. I promise they'll always have at least a fleeting relevance to the day at hand.

November 22: Cutty Sark Launched in Scotland, 1869
The Cutty Sark was one of the last of the China clippers. It was launched on this day in 1869.
The name Cutty Sark derives from a poem about a scantily clad woman.
