Getting back to Mrs Beeton – with a recipe for jugged hare

Please, think of the kittens! What part of that is not evil? The Harmless Villain , those suffering from massive Villain Decay , those who want to be evil , but can’t just get that pesky “no moral compass” part down , and sometimes heroes disguised as villains —God bless ’em—their idea of evil is harmless behavior like cheating at Solitaire, jaywalking, chewing gum in Singapore, pulling the “do not remove” tag off of your mattress , hiding your toothpaste, drinking the milk directly from the carton, and gasp! So, here’s to those villains who should consider a new career—specifically the moments when they really show how wanting for evil they are. If a henchman is the one who can’t maintain a minimum level on villainy, they’re a Minion with an F in Evil. If the latter comes up in his list of offenses, it’s Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking. Contrast A Lighter Shade of Grey. For when this is treated in-universe as a terrible thing, see Felony Misdemeanor.

The earliest closure types for bottles were crude and variably effective.

The following concise view of early closures is quoted from Dr. Julian Toulouse’s book “Fruit Jars” a: There have been many kinds of closures for bottles, ever since glass and pottery have been used for container materials.

The development of the process was likely initiated as glass blowers experimented with molds as a way of producing special surface effects on their vessels.

The mold would impart these designs to the body of the vessel.

Typically the process was completed by removing the parison from the mold and blowing and spinning it in an off-hand fashion until the desired shape and size were achieved. The second step in the transition to molding involved the use of what are known as dip molds.
