Australians are so obsessed with being Australian! My consolations to you, however it should be of some comfort that there are worse things in the world than being Australian [img]tongue.gif[/img]
Do you see me going on about my home country as much as Australians do about theirs? No. There, now no one can say a damn thing about this post

The standard of the brave;
With all her faults we love her still,
"Brittannia rules the wave!"


Brittannia then shall surely know,
Beyond wide ocean's roll,
Her sons in fair Australia's land
Still keep a British soul.

Aaahhhhh! Bless!

It was very low key here in the city, I was sitting out my balcony looking out at the Harbour and other than a ferry race in the morning that was pretty much it! No tall ships, and the number of private craft was less than I've ever seen it. I'd say the bushfires and the heat put a downer on things - who wants to celebrate when others are battling to save their homes?

Hope you enjoyed your damper though .

Well the public holiday made it much easier to watch the Superbowl this year - no having to take the morning off work .
