Don't wait!  It's Day 8!

The answer to yesterday's quote is Frontier Mall.  Jake wants pictures of Flynn and Jasper shopping with Paul Smile

Virtual Tour by Ranger: Warwick Castle!
https://www.warwick-castle.com/

One of the largest and best preserved castles in England, Warwick was also one of the most vital seats of power in the Wars of the Roses, and was home to kings and queens, including King Richard the third who spent some of his childhood there with Anne Neville, daughter of the house, who would grow up to be his Queen. His mother, Cecily Neville, was also a daughter of the house and a remarkable woman in her own right. Her bloodline still runs strong in the British Royal Family.

Take a full guided tour of the castle here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9pcG3y-NwQ which includes watching some jousting in the castle yard, or explore for yourself! https://www.warwick-castle.com/explore/explore-the-warwick-castle-map.aspx  Visit the birds of prey and the castle dungeon if you’re brave enough,  and don’t forget to try out the maze!


If you have the time you can stay at Warwick castle overnight in one of their ornate tents, their lodges, or one of their four poster bed apartments in the castle itself: https://www.warwick-castle.com/explore/explore-the-warwick-castle-map.aspx


A medieval banquet is the obvious meal to finish off your visit: you can have a knights lunch, dinner in the great hall or try the full tournament banquet experience! https://www.warwick-castle.com/cms-assets/documents/255145-52967.wcastle.eventsa5xmas2017brochure.pdf

Today's Trivia:

Question 2. According to Wade the family would have to do without which crop in 1949? Why?

Wade, in The Mary Ellen Carter Prologue:

"..we’re going to have to skip the carrots next year you know?”
“He’s buried David under the veg patch.”

Who sang this song - Paul to Dale in SBR

Dale emerged from the bathroom, naked, dripping, and Luath heard him crack and laugh as he hugged Paul, largely to stifle him.
 
“Ok, I’ll talk, I’ll do anything, just please stop singing.”
 
Paul laughed and hugged him back. On the stairs, there was a quiet clatter and Luath glanced round. Gerry was stooping to pick up a dropped cup and tea was splashed on the stairs carpet.

Warwick Castle - wonderful place. 
We decorated our Christmas tree today. We have a habit of buying a Christmas decoration whenever we have the opportunity to visit somewhere new or interesting. We hung our Warwick Castle bauble on the tree this morning.

Good find, Judy.  I looked in SBE and The Citadel but never thought to check MEC.
