the accumulation of material that washes up onto the beach of John Parry's shore

A sack of objet trouvé. Ultimately they will be put into drawers and labeled, but until then, until classification and what could be called a collection, they will be arranged by date.

Beer o Clock

(A Babylonian tablet inscribed with the directions for brewing beer (c. 3100BC). It is part of a series of tablets that account for an order of 134,813 liters of barley to be delivered to the brewery at the temple of Inanna in Uruk over the course of 37 months!)
Is it Beer O'Clock?

Our Survey says... info from a Survey by Brewers SABMiller compiled the Time for a Beer report.

"Beer O'clock at 6.14pm demonstrates how the idea of swift pint at early doors is a distant memory."

More than 7500 drinkers were studied. The Dutch start drinking latest at 7.19pm, while Germans are last to leave the bar.
