Scotland v Japan: 42 - 17

Congratulation to the Scotland Rugby Team who beat Japan at Murrayfield Edinburgh!!!

Scotland get their autumn tests off to a winning start against Japan yesterday .The first half was a bit frustrated start for the team but

in the second term they started to play good rugby and had a well deserved winning at the end.

They will play against South Africa next week and wish all the best to the team and see You All again at Murrayfield next week!

"I think the people who think it's going to be easy have obviously not watched the Japanese games from the summer." - he said to the BBC.

On a miserable day like this I love to be inside in a warm room and watch a lovely movie in the evening. As a woman I am a fan of romantic films but surprisingly always loved the James Bond spy films. My favourite actor as James Bond is Roger Moore. What a handsome man he was!!! Did you know you could spend an evening in his company? Just visit The Edinburgh Festival Theatre on the 11th of November and have a fantastic experience in your life... Tickets are still available!!!! (£25.00)


The legendary film star chats with biographer Gareth Owen about his astonishing life and career. Featuring inside stories and exclusive anecdotes from an extraordinary career that has included the iconic TV series and the James Bond films.

There will also be a unique opportunity to put your questions to the Hollywood legend at the end of the show."

5th of November: Bonfire Night - Guy Fawke's Night

This unique British festival also called Guy Fawkes Day (Night). Originally it comes from the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 when a man called Guy Fawkes and a group of plotters tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament of London with barrel of gunpowder in the basement. They wanted to kill King James I because they felt the king was treating the Roman Catholics unfairly.

Guy Fawkes' jow was to keep watch the barrels of gunpowder and to light the fuse. On the morning of 5th of November the soldiers discovered and arrested him. He was executed shortly after his arrest.

In celebration of his survival, King James ordered that the people of England should have a great bonfire on the night on 5th November.

If you are in Edinburgh don’t miss the opportunity to join the crowds to celebrate this special day.
