    aaah the celebration of the arrival of ships, British flag etc, and no doubt now a great excuse for a day off and a few tinnies, barbie etc !
  • David de Groot said:
    No actually the celebration of our Federation as a Nation rather than just a British colony. :-P

    Lol, well yes, but prince whats his name- William has been doing his bit to charm you all ! I for one wish that we had not been such a seafaring nation, that invaded huge parts of the world. Because of that- English is spoken all over the place, and we end up with too many immigrants. I have foreign friends, definitely not racist, but our country is too small, we also end up with a load of spongers on our benefit system. We also end up with a lot who work and contribute. Anyway, I just wish we hadnt been so keen on ruling the world !
    We are a mongrel race ( certainly the English bit ) and we've been invaded ourselves a few times too, but of course I mean Romans, Vikings etc

    Happy Australia Day to you too!

    Oh true, but then having English spoken all over the place isn't a bad thing, it's darned close to a universal language now.
    As for hangers-on, you get those in any developed country.

    Sure was!
    Ah, I didn't get up early, slept in til around 8:30 actually. We toodled down to Samford village to the Museum and had a poke around, shot this koala and a few cars, got icecreams and then went home for lamb ribs. 'twas 34 in the village and that was warm enough for me - 39 would have been definite "stay in the car" weather.
