    Remember, remember the 5th of November

    "Remember, remember the fifth of November.
    Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.
    I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason
    Should ever be forgot."

    For those of you wondering what this rhyme has to do with anything...well, it cause I'm a history buff, an Anglophile and today's the 5th of November. :) The Rhyme basically a warning aganist treason (and not to forget its consequences.)

    For more information on Guy Fawkes Night, the Gunpowder Plot, or even the nursery rhyme itself here are a few links:
