King Henry’s Kitchen…a Restaurant on the Island….He is also the King who beheaded 2 of his 6 wives! Read here… about King HenryHe was King Henry VIII…a vicious king I would say! He was the founder of the Church of England……and he wrote “Green Sleeves”!

In primary schools the children learn this rhyme to remember what happened to his wives…”Divorced, beheaded, died
Divorced, beheaded, survived”. In that order, is what happened…!

Thief picks wrong house to burgle
Friday, September 7, 2007

Of all the houses in all of Britain, he had to break into this one.
A bungling burglar was locked up on Thursday after breaking into a flat while its police officer owner was at home. Jason Marshall forced the front door and began sneaking around when Sgt Abdul Haque came downstairs.
In a flash of inspiration, Marshall explained he had come to clean the windows but was told: ‘Not here you’re not. You’re nicked.’ Sgt Haque grabbed him and called for back-up. A search revealed he was carrying 9g of heroin.
The 31-year-old later admitted one count of burglary, possession of a class A drug and asked for 14 other burglary offences to be taken into consideration.
He had recently stolen more than £5,500 worth of property, a court heard. Marshall received a three-year sentence at Portsmouth Crown Court

I sat in front of the TV, soaking up every bit of news coming in, while sobbing! She was a lovely person.
