Sunday Thought
565 years ago to this day, Anne Boleyn, who was a regular visitor to her aunt and uncle's home at Erwarton Hall, was sent to the Tower of London, accused of adultery, incest, treason and witchcraft. The second wife of England's King Henry VIII was executed 17 days later but reputedly insisted her heart was buried in the Suffolk peninsula village of Erwarton.

Orwell Bridge:


Joke of the day:
After double doors had to be installed in the castle to allow for Henry VIII's massive frame, he was no longer the same man who enjoyed playing his horn or teaching his kids.
He was a two-door tooter Tudor too dour to tutor

Sunday reflection:
O most powerful and glorious Lord God, the Lord of hosts, that rulest and commandest all things: Thou sittest in the throne judging right, and therefore we make our address to thy Divine Majesty in this our necessity, that thou wouldest take the cause into thine own hand, and judge between us and our enemies. Stir up thy strength, O Lord, and come and help us; for thou givest not alway the battle to the strong, but canst save by many or by few. O let not our sins now cry against us for vengeance; but hear us thy poor servants begging mercy, and imploring thy help, and that thou wouldest be a defence unto us against the face of the enemy. Make it appear that thou art our Saviour and mighty Deliverer; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
