April 12, 2017

Bed Bath and Beyond coupons, bought Ellen DeGeneres sheets on sale. Hadn't washed my old sheets in quite some time, new sheets feel good.

Old Speckled Hen was not named after a chicken but a paint splattered MG car.

From their web site:

"In 1979 the MG Car Company celebrated the 50th Anniversary of its move from Edmund Road, Cowley, Oxford to Abingdon. They asked Morland & Co. to brew a special commemorative beer for the occasion, for which they would suggest the name. The name chosen was ‘Old Speckled Hen’, which took its name not from a bird, but a car: a paint-spattered MG Featherlight Saloon. Back in the day, this was the MG factory run-around, fondly referred to as the “Owld Speckl’d Un” due to its mottled appearance after several years parked under the paint shop."
