Lions Gate Virtual Views, November 7, 2022

 

Welcome to Lions Gate Virtual Views. We are glad that you can escape with us on these weekly virtual journeys!

 

Please email Melanie with any feedback or suggestions for future program content. Enjoy!

Before we get into today’s theme, let’s get the morning started with this great 30-minute walking workout.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now let’s introduce today’s theme with this song.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday, November 5 was Guy Fawkes Day. If you are English you probably know all about this, but if you aren’t, here’s a brief video that will give you a good synopsis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that you learned a little, let’s see how you do on this Guy Fawkes multiple-choice trivia quiz. Good luck.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you head for lunch, I sometimes like to add a recipe that you might like to try and that fits with our theme for the day. In this case, I found this great video on a 1915 Yorkshire parkin, a gingerbread-like treat that is traditionally eaten on Guy Fawkes Day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s get some virtual time outside. Here is a good video of Guy Fawkes History Walking Tour. While some of the information may duplicate the information in a previous video, it may be fun for you to stand up, visualize yourself in York, England and walk along with this tour as if you were there in person.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you know, I love music – this is from Guy Fawkes, The Musical. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy this three-hour movie called Gunpowder - Treason and Plot, which is the Guy Fawkes story.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you had a great day. Remember to celebrate our veterans on November 11. We have much to thank them for in keeping our country free.

 

Please send us your feedback. It will help us build a better program for YOU.

Stay safe and I hope you check back in next week - Monday, Nov. 7
