Fellow Blogger and US expat Robert Tumminello cheered me up when he wrote: “Red Sox fans everywhere, take heart.” I did stay up and watched game 6 of the World Series on channel five at 2:30 am and I was thinking if Florida can do it, the Red Sox could do it next season. Improve the bullpen and we can win it!

Over the past weekend we had some friends from Ireland visit. Saturday we went to Nottingham Castle for the Robin Hood Pageant. It was pretty good, with jousting knights and Robin Hood fighting the Sheriff of Nottingham for hand Maid Marian. There were some people who reenacted what it was like to live in the medieval times. King Richard was holding court in his tent and you could strike your own coin with all the different craft people. Also we had a few pints at the “Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem” pub. It was pretty interesting place that was built in 1189 and part of it is a cave.

Sunday we went back up to Sherwood Forest to see the Major Tree and there was a gentleman who showed you how to use an English long bow. I tried it and after a few shots I was hitting the center of the target, but I know it is a bit harder than the movies make it look.
