...Crown green bowls.



For those of you who don't know your sixteenth century history then shame on you.
For those of you who do, then you are geeky , just like me.


10 other great moments in history.

1) AD 1066, after a bit of rough & tumble, the English invite the French to stay for a bit.
2) AD 1492 Christopher Columbus gets a bit lost & has to stop off at McDonnalds to ask directions.
3) AD 1776 July 4, England celebrates it's 'independence day' as it gives away a troublesome little colony.
4) AD 1896 Alexanda Graham Bell gets very bored of not having full internet access, so decideds to get the ball rolling.
5) AD 1908, Henry Ford comes up with a great idea to get rid of all that black paint in his garden shed.
6) AD 1912 April 15, HMS Titanic. The last bridge command was Captain Smiths' communication to the Galley "No I said make the ships supper, NOT SCUPPER !"
7) AD 1940 Dunkirk France. The English decide to go home and have a little think about what to do next.
8) AD 1963 November 22, JFK comes up with a wizzer of a publicity stunt that goes a bit awry.
9) AD 1969 April, Buzz, Neil & the boys walk on the film set to fake the first moon landings.

No, I hate to correct you BUT Elvis lives here and is the umpire I see every Saturday morning with a gut the size of a woman with twins. When he calls an out, he says "Thank you, thank you very much."
