(One was the son of an immigrant, the other became an immigrant himself.) That was over a century ago, but they still do a mean infant samba (you have to click on the picture to see it):


And so to the main event. It's not Lewes, but given their burning crosses, etc., that's no bad thing:


May we all escape being hanged, drawn and quartered for another year, is my heartfelt blessing.
