Election Results

Smiling this morning.  Congrats President Obama.  The best man won.  I had to go to bed last night before the end.  It was pretty nail-biting for a while and I (quite happily) have lost a bet with my middle son.  I was pretty sure Romney was going to win and my son was sure Obama would win.  I will happily fork over my $20 this morning to him. 

I am proud that - although I cannot vote as I am not a citizen - my three children all went out to vote.  This was both my middle son's (21) and youngest daughter's (18) first election they could vote in and they were excited to do so.  The queues were not that bad here.

Election Day

Yikes.  Will be glad when this is all over.  The radio has been crazy with commercials for everything possible, telephone keeps ringing with political surveys and such, and the mailbox has been covered with stickers from all sides.  We have, thankfully, been kept from people knocking on door as they all seem to be able to read - and pay attentiont to - the No Soliciting sign we have outside.

Guy Fawkes Day

Remember, remember the Fifth of November, The Gunpowder Treason and Plot, I know of no reason Why Gunpowder Treason Should ever be forgot. Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent To blow up King and Parliament. Three-score barrels of powder below To prove old England's overthrow; By God's providence he was catch'd With a dark lantern and burning match. Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring. Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

They had an interesting guy on Radio Suffolk - Mark Murphy show (still available to listen) - a relative of one of the plotters Robert Catesby on the show. 

On a side note - it's also my wedding anniversary today.  Picked a date I couldn't forget.  Hubby and I have been married 24 years :)
