well I went off early...I get excited about JJJ Hottest 100 and as it turns out, so does my daughter in law , so she and the big fella came for a visit. They usually play all the songs on Australia Day, but not this year. We did in fact have a barbie and a swim and watched "Ned Kelly" with Heath and last. Poor little sunshine, you never stood a chance.
Yesterday I watched two good movies "adaption"***** and "frida"***half...multicultural day, both very good
I don't really like the choice of day to celebrate our nationhood. It commemorates January 26 1788, when Captain Phillip arrived with the First Fleet of British soldiers and convicts. It would be good to find a day that includes the aboriginal people. It would be hard to choose the perfect day that suits everyone though.
I wish I had gone to my local council celebration. The guest of honour was a man I admire greatly. He started the Seabird Rescue organistion in this area and it is now growing into a nationwide thing. If I lived closer to the coast I would certainly become one of his volunteers.
Thanks for your well wishes
I love the wide brown land, with the delicate little green bit round the edge
diverse, generous, tough and beautiful
we are so lucky to be here

Happy Australia Day eh

In honour of your fine day I grilled shrimp for dinner, drank some beer (sorry, I was out of Fosters), listened to INXS and Midnight Oil. My kids watched their Wiggles DVD over and over again. Time now to watch a movie...mmm something with Russell Crowe.

I thought this thread was about curling...

disregarding disappointment, I'll wish you and yours a happy one.
