Remember, remember! The fifth of November, The Gunpowder treason and plot…

For those in the UK, enjoy the fireworks safely. Check there's no wildlife sheltering in the bonfire before you light it.

The rest of us will have no such fun (the best I'll manage is the regular loud fireworks set off by the local school ... at 6 in the morning!)

First time I ever went to England we landed on the afternoon of bonfire night. It was also (they said) the worst rain storm to hit the UK in decades. We saw one lonely oil drum bonfire sputtering on a rooftop across from our hotel.

On this date in 1928, John Barrymore married Dolores Costello.

This union would result in two children (Dolores Ethel Mae Barrymore and John Drew Barrymore). On his fourth marriage, John Drew Barrymore would father Drew Barrymore.

I cooked a haggis supper last night after our prayer meeting. OK, so it was haggis from cans (because I didn't fancy the logistical difficulties of bringing a proper haggis half way around the world). Tatties were simple. Neeps a bit more challenging, I resorted to a mix of carrot and diakon - which worked quite well.

Yesterday I missed putting World AIDS Day on here - after 30+ years the fight goes on and the search for a cure continues. Like many gay men I have lost a number of friends to the disease - but remember that worldwide it is primarily a disease that affects women and that, as in most things, the poor are the most vulnerable - but is a disease that can strike anyone.

Today is Disability Day so let us please be aware of how the world around us disables so many people and how something as sample as a single step can disable others - not so far from here and very close to where we used to live they built a beautiful new mosque with a fabulous ramp up from street level to improve access - except at the bottom of the ramp was a step! Thus wheelchair users were unable to worship there.

Today is also Roof over your Head Day just to help us realise that there are a lot of people in this world who don't have this luxury - and mainly we just take it for granted - I know I do.

No surprise. It's basically a tropical ferret on steroids, and ferrets are best known for getting their teeth into anything and not letting go.

So Hanukkah started at sundown yesterday, and we still have a few days to celebrate the Festival of Lights.

December 7, 1787: My home state of Delaware became the first state to ratify the United States Constitution. Hence, Delaware is billed as "The First State."

Of course, December 7 is also National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day to remember the 1941 surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.

The age is going up: I will be 62 in February but I won't qualify for my Pass until 2019. Things may be different in Canada.

Anyway, congratulations - is he having a special Recital to celebrate?

Now that I think about it, I don't even know if it applies here or not. There are one or two places (restaurants, cinemas etc.) that offer "senior discounts", and he's been offered them for years, as his hair's somewhat white ... [Big Grin]

I understand from friends in the Irish Republic that you not only get a bus-pass, but free train travel when you're an OAP (not sure whether the cut-off is 60 or 65). We used to know a couple in Cork who would use it to go up on the train to Dublin to baby-sit their grandchildren.

BT - no recital (he just did an ordinary one yesterday). We are, however, doing some restaurant research in the evening. [Smile]

Whereas those of us who don't live in the capital don't. If you are 60 this month you won't get your bus pass until your 66th birthday - maybe. Latest word from DWP requesting my projected pension details is that I should receive my pension at age 66 with the caveat that the information "is correct at the time of writing" - make of that what you will.

Perhaps it is different in Canada's newest province, but in Ontario, I got mine at 65. I get a lot of senior discounts - one today without even asking. [Eek!]

My bus pass is not free, not at all. But $42.50 a month beats $125 a month all hollow.

My brother Dave (deuce2) died seven years ago today. It doesn't seem that long, and the ache in my heart is just as big as it was that day. I wouldn't want him back, sick as he was with pancreatic cancer, but I miss him. [Tear]

Even more so than I was before

Hugs Pete. I was thinking of him yesterday and wondering how long ago it happened. There is always a hole. Raw grief may ease, but the hole remains.

Today is International Migrants Day and this year it seems most appropriate as there are so many migrants in the world - both migrants by force and migrants by choice - I'm one of the latter and am a descendant of Huguenots who were the former.

I give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.

Not much of the migrant about me but Mrs S and Youngest Son were born in Malta, her mother has Breton forebears and her Irish father has some Norwegian. Me? British and a bit of French, way back.
