I’ll trade you this bear skin rug for…Martha’s Vineyard

My lunch must be accompanied by a Big Cran Nantucket Nectar. Today’s bottle cap factoid: 

In 1692, Nantucket was purchased for 30 English pounds and two beaver hats.

Funny, because you can’t buy anything on the island now for under 30 pounds and you sure as hell wouldn’t walk around that tony community in a beaver hat. Makes you yearn for the days when you could slap down a 20 dollar bill and a pelt and own an island.
