Daily Holidays - January 11

Milk Day It is generally thought that Milk Day was created to celebrate the first time milk was delivered in glass bottles. Prior to this, conditions for milk delivery were fairly unsanitary but the new bottles enabled safe and clean storage. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/milk-day/

Learn Your Name in Morse Code Day Morse Code was one of the most important innovations of communications the world has seen, serving as the foundation of one of the first high-speed communications networks in the world. Used for everything from semaphore communication, to flashing with lights, to drawing it out as a sort of code, and most importantly, the use of telegraphs to help transmit information across vast distances in the days before the telephone, itís hard to understate the importance of Morse Code. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/learn-your-name-in-morse-code-day/

1. I miss the old insulated milk box by the door...

... I consume over a quart of the stuff a day, it's a drag having to run out for milk every few days. But in today's cultural environment, such a box would likely be looted within ten minutes of the milkman coming.
