Apparently on this day in 1569 Britain got it's first state lottery! I rarely do the lottery, being a pigeon and all, but you can get tickets from most places these days, but in 1569 you had to go to St Pauls Cathedral to make your purchase...how strange..
I wonder what the prize was...20 groats, or goats,? who knows...does anyone know?
Must fly (!) I like to meet Eric on Nelson's hat for a beak wag before bedtime.
