bonfire night

Sounds like Beirut outside, with fireworks from Glasgow High School behind us, and Jordanhill School along the road.  School firework celebrations, delayed from Guy Fawkes night yesterday.

Never quite understood why we celebrate a failed terrorist attack on the Houses of parliament by sending colourful little bombs into the air and burning effigies.  maybe its just me, but i dont get it
