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 :)
