The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament all up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England's overthrow.
But, by God's providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
A stick and a stake
For King James's sake!1mon

jeffreylauck123 years ago today, on October 1, 1890, Yosemite National Park was established. It offers beautiful vistas and adventures, earning the title of my favorite non-historical National Park and the designation of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. Unfortunately, anyone who would want to celebrate this historic day by visiting the park would not be able to, as Yosemite National Park announced it's closure due to the government shutdown. Too bad, so sad.2mon
