Raising money to adopt & rehabilitate a rescue pit!

This precious baby boy

(too sweet for this world)

needs a little extra attention. I would like to shape him into a model companion, to show all the humans how great Pit Bulls can be. If you would like to help out, I’ve got a GoFundMe account set up over here, OR you can buy an 8x10″ print of my Pints & Pits painting through my shop OR  just via private message here or at hannahkennedyart[at]gmail.Let’s get this boy out of the shelter ASAP.


Today I wanted to buy new shorts, but instead of going to the shop I went to the Danube, to see some planes at the Red Bull Air Race.

It was really hot there, so I went to the McDonald’s at Deák Ferenc tér to get a Pöttyös McFlurry (yummy)

After that I had this little tour, where I walked down Wesselényi utca to get to the Városliget, had a good beer at PeCsa, from there I went to the Papp László Aréna.

Round Turn Distilling Launches in Biddeford, Drip Bar Drops in Bridgton, More

Five sips of beverage buzz throughout Maine.

BIDDEFORD — Beer, pizza, now gin: the revitalized Pepperell Mill seems to have it all. Round Turn Distilling, run by Kennebunk native Darren Case and with design work by Might and Main, opened recently in the space directly adjacent to Banded Horn Brewing Company and across the hall from Portland Pie Company. Case buys in neutral grain spirits to redistill into Bimini Gin, which guests can sample neat or in two mixed drinks at the tasting room Fridays from 4 to 9 p.m. Status: Certified open. 32 Main Street, Building 13W, Suite 103, Biddeford, (207) 370-9446, website.

BIDDEFORD — Not far away, Tom Bull, former co-owner and head brewer of Portland's defunct all-lager producer Bull Jagger Brewing Company, is returning to the brewhouse. The Beer Babe has more on Bull and partner Mark Paulin’s Dirigo Brewing Company, which will “reside in the Riverdam Millyard.” The company hopes to release lagers (which are still a minority but increasingly common in craft beer) and ales by the end of 2015. Status: Give it time. Pearl Street, Biddeford, Facebook.

BRIDGTON — There’s a new coffee shop in town: drip bar is serving Tandem Coffee Roasters, according to an Instagram post from last week. The cafe opened July 4 and so far a single Facebook reviewer calls it a “terrific addition to Bridgton!” Status: Certified open. 260 Main Street, Bridgton, Facebook.

PORTLAND — Per Portland Food Map, Soakology opens the doors to its new space at 11 a.m. today. The new location, next to Golden Lotus, is much larger than the original at Monument Square; both the tea bar and spa have expanded. Status: Certified open. 511 Congress Street, Suite 105, Portland, (207) 879-7625, website.

PORTLAND/POWNALPortland Food Map also reports that Portersfield Cider, heirloom orchardist and author David Buchanan’s Pownal-based hard cider company announced last fall, began selling bottles at the Portland Farmers’ Market at Deering Oaks Park on Saturday. The two initial offerings are Original Dry and Aronia, a beautiful blend involving elderberries and aronia berries, also known as chokeberries. Status: Certified open. 255 Elmwood Road, Pownal, (207) 233-5534, Facebook.

The wild west of Commonwealth England

From the evidence of their quarter sessions records the inhabitants of West Sussex seem to have been remarkably staid during most of the 1650s.  Those in Somerset were the opposite.  No one was going to stop them wife-beating, buying gallons of beer at their revels, bull-baiting, sheep stealing or worrying or shooting at passing strangers.   Many of the complaints here seem to suggest anxieties about the presence in the area of royalist sympathisers or former royalist soldiers.  Exploits reported to quarter sessions include an incident of grave robbery for scientific purposes, what looks like a Catholic priest coursing the country with a trunk of sacramental equipment, and cases which are euphemistically reported in Harbin’s early 20th century calendar under the category of ‘incivility’, ‘audacious’ or ‘outrageous’ behaviour, which clearly merited further investigation into the specifics of the charges (and, as it turns out, to correct some of Harbin’s mistranscriptions).  What Harbin terms a ‘gross outrage’ committed on Mary Cooper of Oxley in August 1656, was to accept a contract for a year’s service with a Mrs Davis only to find herself immediately ‘married’ off to her husband’s friend:

… Daniell Davis told the said Bath that they had provided a wife for him meaning the said Examinate and perswaded her …  that shee should agree to be his wife, And told the said Charles that he should have her before he did Lett her goe or wished that the divell might take him … the said Daniell Davis his wife her said Dame came behind her and thrust her onto him beinge past 12 a Clocke at night soe then the said Charles and this Examinate went together where in the Church porch of Andrews within the said Liberty he had Carnall knowledge of her body … and that shee is now with Child …

The ‘audacious’ behaviour of John Harris of Huntspill included attempting the chastity of every married woman he met, including one who was, as he boasted, a ‘saint’:

and [if] James Parman would not believe it he would and presently did produce his Carnall Instrument on a table before him and many others …

Now that’s a term I’ve not come across before.  Much more just as promising yet to look at.
