This is the 100th entry into this blog, oh how time flys. I am writing this in early evening and I can hear fireworks going off all over.
Ok I know in the US fireworks day is on 4th July but here in England, 5th of November is what we call Bonfire Night, Guy Fawkes Night or Fireworks Night. The saying I remember being taught as a child was "Remember Remember the 5th of November Gun Powder, treason and plot."
The reason for anyone who does not know is because on 5th November way back in 1605 a bunch of Roman Catholic conspirators paid Guy Fawkes to blow up the Houses of Parliament. The method to be used was Barrel's of Gun Powder which Guy Fawkes was to ignite. Unfortunately for Guy Fawkes he was caught the whole plot was uncovered and the Houses of Parliament were not blown up. That's over 400 years ago and still today we have Terrorists trying to blow things up, crazy world eh?
