A Penny for the Guy

Please to remember
The Fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Guy! Guy! Guy!
Stick him up on high;
Hang him on a lamp post
And leave him there to die.

Ladies and gentlemen you'll never grow fat,
If you don't put a penny in the old Guy's hat.

Yes, it's Guy Fawkes Day. Neither a Catholic nor a California tradition. But if you're interested in a little more information about the only man to enter parliament without making any false campaign promises, you might try here.

We'll be foregoing the bonfire here tonight. Southern California is a tad bonfired out this November. The smell of smoke isn't going cheer anyone up in this area.
