Come Monday it will be the last day of H-season

Monday, November 30, 2015, is the last day of official hurricane season. Hurray!

While this Jimmy Buffett video isn't about hurricanes, it's the first time I've seen it and I wanted to share.  I wonder when it was made? In the seventies? Anyway, it has a nice introduction...


Come Monday - Jimmy Buffett

Tomorrow we do the happy dance!

Remember, Remember The 5th Of November

It's November 5th. I remember my mother reciting this when I was little...

    Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.
    Threescore barrels, laid below,
    To prove old England's overthrow.
    But, by God's providence, him they catch,
    With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
    A stick and a stake
    For King James's sake!
    If you won't give me one,
    I'll take two,
    The better for me,
    And the worse for you.
    A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
    A penn'orth of cheese to choke him,
    A pint of beer to wash it down,
    And a jolly good fire to burn him.
    Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
    Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
    Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

Here's a bit of history for you...

Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire Night and Fireworks Night, is an annual commemoration observed on November 5th primarily in Great Britain.

It celebrate the events of November 5, 1605 concerning the foiling of (Catholic) Guy Fawkes's attempt to blow up (Protestant controlled) England's House of Parliament. He was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. The bonfire is to burn the effiigy of Guy Fawkes but in some time periods it also included the Pope.
