  • 1757 – birth of William Blake, English poet and painter. William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English painter, poet and printmaker. Largely unrecognized during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. His prophetic poetry has been said to form "what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language." His visual artistry led one contemporary art critic to proclaim him "far and away the greatest artist Britain has ever produced." Although Blake was considered mad by contemporaries for his idiosyncratic views, he is held in high regard by later critics for his expressiveness and creativity, and for the philosophical and mystical undercurrents within his work. His paintings and poetry have been characterized as part of the Romantic movement and "Pre-Romantic," for its large appearance in the 18th century. Reverent of the Bible but hostile to the Church of England (indeed, to all forms of organized religion), Blake was influenced by the ideals and ambitions of the French and American Revolutions.
  • “The cottage food act was amended last September to allow specific foods to be prepared and sold from unlicensed residential kitchens,” said Dr. Connie Sheppard, AgriLife Extension agent for family and consumer sciences, Bexar County. “Food can be sold from the home, a farmers market, a farm stand or at a fair, festival or event sponsored by a municipality, county or non-profit organization.” Sheppard said the revised law requires that all cottage-business foods have labels with the name and address of the operation, the product, possible allergens and a statement that the food was not prepared in a kitchen inspected by the Texas Department of State Health Services or a local health department.
