Adrian Hellyer is a Portsmouth UK antiques dealer specializing in tea-related items, but he also publishes a brilliant monthly e-newsletter called The Tea Clipper.
The Tea Clipper is full of tea-related facts, information, history and places of interest worth visiting (mostly in the UK, but occasionally abroad as well) in relation to tea and tea drinking. It is free, sent by email, and "for interest only" - i.e., you won't find any forced selling or pushy sales dialogue there.
Every issue contains photographs and text about his visit to a stately home or museum or other place of interest which visit usually ends by his having tea there or nearby. I love this newsletter and think he's done a fine job with it.

Saturday October 4 is the last day that some of you (Alaska, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Washington) can register to vote in the November Presidential election. Other states' deadlines follow close behind. If you want to know when the deadline is in YOUR state, check out the Rock the Vote website.
Voting is a privilege - please take it seriously.
