Haystacks and soap box derby's - maybe under another name?
the potatoes arent mashed, theyre shredded
and a soap box derby is a race down a hill in a little motorless car
the haystack can either be a chocolate treat or an actual stack of hay

Well we have haystacks that are actual stacks of hay but they now make them in big round rolls rather than squares.
Never heard of the chocolate ones, but that sounds good (lets face it anything chocolate sounds good).

I'm not sure what they call "soap box derby's" here but the cars are called Billy carts and are made of pieces of junk that kids find.

Crack a tinnie - open a can of beer (thought it was appropriate for the Octagon bar).

A Bounty Bar is very sweet coconut stuff covered in a thick layer of chocolate.

IGA sounds like a golf tournament? (International Golf Association) So no, not really into golf. I mean I like to play occasionally but wouldn't really bother going to watch.

a bounty bar is like a mounds bar. a haystack is different

we flip lids, like on a bottle of beer
and IGA is actually a grocery store, lol nothing to do with golf

our golf is played on links

"Links" is very British. We play on courses.

No, don't think we have any IGA here, well not in Perth. There isn't enough people (only about 2.2 million people live in the whole State, with about 1.7ish in Perth).

We have "Coles" and "Action" supermarkets.

Around here if you can get through the shops without meeting three people that you know, you are doing really well.

A chevron sounds like a car!

I know everybody in our safeway market

a chevron is a gas station
and we dont have self serve either!

It use to be that on Sunday's petrol stations were open on a roster system (ie one per area). So if you ran out, you could be really stuck.

Apart from Christmas and in Perth and Fremantle, most shops are not open at all on Sunday's. Though it used to be that most shut at 12pm on a Saturday as well...

Oh and get this, we are one of the few States that doesn't go onto daylight saving, which means that at the moment (summer) there are five different time zones in Australia. This means that my working day starts at 6am (as on the other side of the island it is 9am) and goes through to 5pm (when people finish up work here).

I'm not complaining though, I do have a lot of advantages (live 5mins from the beach and 2 minutes from the river, the weather is mostly great, the life style is relaxed etc, etc). You should come visit one day

hey your place sounds great! I live really close to the beach too actually
we have really weird work times around here. in the summer there are a lot of people in the town because its a tourist attraction. when they come all the shops are open till late!
we have like 5 gas(petrol) stations in our little town that is basically five miles long and runs along the beach.
its a little beach town with lots of surfers and old people!

We get a lot of people in town when the US Navy calls in for some R&R... (about once every three months)

Your place sounds like a good spot to get away from it all.
