Today in History: First Dishwasher marketed in 1889

129 years ago today, the first dishwashing machine was marketed in Chicago, Illinois. Josephine Cochrane patented her invention in 1886. A wealthy socialite, Cochrane designed the dishwasher because she was tired of her best china being chipped by the hired help. Cochrane’s dishwasher company eventually became KitchenAid. Cochrane died in 1913 at the age of 74.

Today is National Pencil Day

Today is #NationalPencilDay

Most pencils made in the United States are painted yellow. This tradition supposedly began in 1890 when the L & C Hardtmuth Company of Austria-Hungary introduced their Koh-I-Noor brand, named after the famous diamond. This pencil was intended to be the world’s best and most expensive pencil. Other companies then began to copy the yellow color so that their pencils would be associated with the high-quality bran (www.nationaldaycalendar.com).

Today is National #Absinthe Day. 

Today is National #Absinthe Day. 

Absinthe is a very strong green aniseed-flavored liqueur (actually spirit, as it is unsweetened), originally made with the shrub wormwood. French doctor, Pierre Ordinaire, has been credited with the creation of absinthe in the early 19th century. He prescribed it to his patients as a cure for many illnesses. Absinthe became popular among artists and writers as it was rumored to have hallucinogenic effects. Its reputation took severe a downhill turn at the end of the 19th century when the green liquid was blamed for causing madness. In 1905, a French worker is said to have murdered his wife and children after having spent the day drinking absinthe. The drink was soon banned in France, much of Europe and the United States. In 2007, a less potent version of the original absinthe was legalized in the U.S.
