Slavery, the Foursquare Church and the democracy of Nepal

As we continue our week of highlighting social reforms...
(see the earlier posts if you have not already)

On this day in 1652,  Rhode Island makes slavery illegal.


On this day in 1926, Aimee Semple McPherson, founder of the Foursquare church disappears while visiting a Venice, California beach.


On this day in 2006, Nepal, formerly a Hindu monarchy was changed almost overnight into democracy.  The post Loktantra Andolan government's May 18th Act made sweeping changes - curtailing the power of the King and making Nepal a secular country.


The Historical Inebriant:  The October Revolution

  • 1 part Vodka
  • 1 part Crème de cacao (white)

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker two-thirds full of ice cubes. Shake well. Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass.

Well, that concludes a week of social/political reforms, hope you enjoyed something a little different.

Have a great and safe weekend!
