Fireworks night last night

Went to a local one in our City. Was real good actually.

Pic of the bonfire:



Couldn't get a good pic of the fireworks, but here's a nice video:

Open in quicktime

The bonfire was HUGE and the fireworks were pretty impressive

Remember remember the fifth of November,

Gunpowder Treason and Plot,

I see no reason why gunpowder treason

should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, 'twas his intent

to blow up the King and the Parliament.

Three score barrels of powder below,

Poor old England to overthrow:

By God's providence he was catch'd

With a dark lantern and burning match.

Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.

Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

Hip hip hoorah!

A penny loaf to feed the Pope.

A farthing o' cheese to choke him.

A pint of beer to rinse it down.

A of sticks to burn him.

Burn him in a tub of tar.

Burn him like a blazing star.

Burn his body from his head.

Then we'll say ol' Pope is dead.

Hip hip hoorah!

Hip hip hoorah!

Any1 live near a council estate? I do, they are supposed to be poor etc. but what annoys me is the fact they have 5 days around the 5th where basically every house spends like £2000 in fireworks and they start as soon as it beginning to go dark and end at like 10pm. The fact that the cat went missing annoys me and that it just doesn't stop for agggges and aggggges...I'm sat here with a headache now! It takes a lot to do that (i'm a hardcore music fan) and I think they just chose the loudest possible. Rant over

My neighbours round here can't put on a decent show. They just send 1 firework off every 10 minutes, which makes the dog bark for ages each time!
