Boudicea

Good morning from Healthygal (formerly Healthygirl)!

Are there any Jeopardy watchers here?  Jeopardy is an iconic American Quiz show...

Last night one of the questions was about a British queen who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire in about AD 60.

I immediately yelled out Boudicea!

My fellow, who is a history buff just looked at me as if to say HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT?

I was proud to answer that I'd learned about Boudicea on Cpnhelp!  I've learned lots of helpful information on Cpnhelp.

Thanks to everyone who contibutes!

That woman from Colchester was quite a person!

Hey ...

As any fun-lovin Cockney will tell you, Essex girls can be a handful at the best of times. When she wasn't dancing around a PVC handbag in white stilettos, she was busy leading  Iceni warriors and sacking Londinium.

Boadicea is a very knowledgeable CAPer too. These days, I think that her chariot can be found parked closer to Coventry than to Colchester. I wouldn't mess with her nonetheless.

Oh, I love this! Thank you for making me smile.

I was living in Colchester when I first became ill, so I thought Boadicea might make the perfect role model for my own personal uprising against those bacteria!

The Iceni chieftainess got a kind of grim revengeful pleasure in forcing the Roman centurions in Colchester barracks to dance round the said handbags.
