It's over now but the day was beautiful where I live Smile.

Lots of celebrations all over the place and excellent tennis and cricket to watch if you're so inclined.

I always enjoy attending or watching the citizenship ceremonies which always occur on this day. They remind me how lucky we are to live here.

I was once a 10 pom... Fond memories of fairy meadow, Wollongong.
Still have lots of family in Oz and always think of them on Australia day Smile

The rain stopped long enough yesterday for us to do some cleaning up outside and get ready for the rain/storms/floods that we're expecting over the next few days - you know it's flood season in Queensland when you see people at the supermarket stocking up on bottled water and toilet paper Very Happy

Hi Wes,
Given the annual rainfall can I suggest that you buy one of these and stabilise it on a block to live in, then when the floods arrive you can use it to cruise about helpin others.


Alternatively you could come back to a dry state like SA...If you had this last year you could almost have cruised here.

I do pray nothing gets as bad as last year though and you are all spared the worst

I missed the ten pound pom scheme paying full tote odds for my air fare. Indeed although then married to an aussie I also had to qualify as a required profession. 28 years ago this year.

"Trainee medium" was a required profession?

Is that another way of saying you were in a daze?
