Trafalgar 200

Today, Eammon and his office mates are celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Trafalgar Day with a Limey (OK... it's lemon) cake that I made, to look like a British White Ensign. So no calling in with complaints of Scurvy.

Trafalgar Day is the celebration of the victory won by Admiral Horatio Nelson's British fleet, over the combined French and Spanish fleet, at the Battle of Trafalgar on October 21, 1805.

Kikalee & Julie, I added all those links especially for you, because I know you love them and can't stop yourselves from clicking on each and every one!

  2. Too cool! So is this like some real English holiday? If it is, I wonder how the French feel about it? LOL!
