My mother, my daugther and I went to a nice pub and watched it there and had a nice meal. (it was made even better because somebody thought my daughter was my sister
). It is fun we make silly bets and lots of women were wearing silly (but fun) hats. Great
photos from the Melbourne Cup
Just why is the hat thing associated with the races, surely this is not just an Antipodean (kiwi and aussie) thing?
Of course tomorrow is Guy Fawkes so tomorrow, if you don't know what that is....
Robert Catesby was the lead figure in thinking up the actual plot, Fawkes was put in charge of executing the plan for his
explosives experience. The plot was foiled shortly before its intended completion, as Fawkes was captured while guarding the gunpowder. Suspicion was aroused by his wearing of a coat, boots and spurs, as if he intended to leave very quickly.
I like the professional fireworks displays better so I will take K and her friends to one and we will have a picnic. It will probably be held on the weekend though. Every year some dickheads get careless and people get injured and burn down homes etc. Heres hoping that doesn't happen this year.
So America is voting. The race issue in the elections is rather big, I was wondering, if Obama was white and McCain was black - who would you vote for?
