Eat Drink and be Merry!

Good morning all

Happy Guy Fawkes Day to all you British people who know what I'm talking about - to the rest of the world today we celebrate when Guy Fawkes didn't blow up our houses of Parliament in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605! 
 Strange one I know but it gets better!! - We celebrate by making an effigy of this man (a bit like a scarecrow), burn him on a bonfire and set fireworks off just because we can
 - are we British a bit odd..... hmm sometimes I wonder.

Anyway after that short history lesson lets get on with today's challenge at
