Remember remember the fifth of November, gunpowder treason and plot. Geez, you'd think we were under attack! The buildup to Bonfire Night has been going on for at least two weeks but tonight the noise from backyard fireworks has been continuous since dusk. Kind of neat when they go off behind the tree in front of our window, it looks like it's on fire. Someone's making a mint out of this. We went to see the fireworks display at Alexander Palace which was excellent. Rivaled some of the shows at the now-defunct "Festival of Fire" in Toronto. Ally-pally is on top of a hill with a great view of London so we could see dozens of smaller explosions all over the city. I wonder if we'll get any sleep tonight?
