I case you didn't know

Today is? not just Halloween, something we hardly knew about when I was a child,
today is a day off for Germans in this and other Protestant areas (not the Roman Catholic areas obviously) whatever day of the week the 31st of October is on, as it´s `Reformation day´

So if kids come to the door tonight I will challenge them, "If you can tell me what today is you get a treat, if not a history lesson"


Reformation day honours Martin Luther's bold action on October 31st, 1517. ... In some parts of Europe, Reformation Day is a civil holiday celebrated on October 31st, a day to commemorate the vast social and political change that resulted from Luther's actions.

I was very struck in Germany how many regions/towns identified as Catholic or Protestant, very often proclaiming it with statues.

So it’s not only us then.


The people who passed off a pair of gloves as *two* items of PPE may not be entirely honest.

Certainly not, didn't they have a full 30 year war that included many massacres and attrocities on both sides with whole towns being slaughtered? I

Martin Luther’s history about breaking away from the church is very interesting, my grandson just completed a history project about him and his life.

Too depressing for me Jan and watching films on the computer is just not the same. Thanks anyway.

A strange remark to make Raymond, why is that depressing, it´s history and he changed the world of religion whether you believe in it or not. it´s through him the whole world can read the New Testament.

I have just watched the film again.

I get exasperated watching any religion with spooky music. Plus the credits took far too long and I was bored before they finished.

Just managed to get Channel5 catch-up so my wife could watch Henry V111 episode 3 which we missed. First time faffing about with VPN and relinquishing my PC. Don't think we will be doing this very often.

Sometimes Raymond you talk a load of old ****.
The story was already being told from the very beginning, sound off and read the sub titles, do I have to tell you everything. If you don´t want to know about Martin Luther just don´t watch and don´t say anything.
