Poe Toaster No More?

First and foremost - happy 201st birthday to the master: Edgar Allan Poe! I wish you the peace and prosperity, dear Poe, that eluded you in life. May you share your days in paradise with your darling Virginia and your loving 'Muddy' at your side.

But what's this? No Poe Toaster? Perhaps last year, on the 200th anniversary of his birth, the toaster saw fit to end this charming ritual. I dearly hope not, for Poe deserves this fitting memorial. In a year from now I suppose we shall see. In the meantime, raise a glass filled with cream and amber and sing a toast to Israfel!

Happy Birthday, Poe!
