Found a new blog: Strange Maps. Very interesting survey of how maps are used and reshaped to tell a story or make a point. Have a look: Strange Maps.
- WelcomeWelcome to my blog, a few thoughts about people, places, events, and ideas that interest me. You'll find everything from racing (ALMS, not NASCAR) to typography, photography to Old English (like "Beowulf", not Chaucer). Post a comment if you find something interesting. Thanks for visiting!

A drink made of molasses and water, and sometimes a little vinegar and ginger; also, rum and water sweetened with molasses, formerly a common beverage among American sailors; hence, in sailors' use, any strong drink, sweetened and flavored.
Example usage: Water, thickened with oatmeal, or made spicy with vinegar and ginger, 'switchel,' as it is called, served to quench the thirst.
