A priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.
He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?"
"Just water," says the priest. The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?"

First English female doctor's license.In 1865, Elizabeth Anderson (née Garrett, 9 Jun 1836 - 17 Dec 1917) became the first female licensed physician in Britain. The daughter of a Whitechapel paenbroker, she had studied medicine privately after being refused admission to medical schools. On 28 Sep 1865, she was examined orally in medicine, midwifery and medical pathology, and was one of three out of the seven candidates to receive a Final Certificate, entitling her to practice as a qualified physician and surgeon. A year after being licensed, she became a general medical attendant to St. Mary's Dispensary, London, later known as New Hospital, where she instituted medical courses for women. New Hospital was renamed in her honour (1918) as the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital.
