From time to time, I am sent or find information on some item that relates to bottles on this site.  Often this information does not warrant a full published article, but the information is noteworthy on its own account and would normally manifest itself in some change that would generally go unnoticed; like a change of location or some attribute change.  These notes are my way of telling these small stories.
