There are times we may think this a lousy country with a lousy government until we travel to other countries.and then we realise what a wonderful country it is with a great system of government.There is nowhere one earth white like it.

Thanks Cal... Why does Care2 support allow you to post a post I have already posted?

Did the dingo really eat the baby? We still don't know.

What did you sign Aaron?

Thanks Cal noted. Loved it I agree Australians are a breed of their own and we love. When and and others have traveled for a while and fly home, our first response is to want to get down and kiss the ground because we are home.

Best beer in Australia is Red Back, and a prawn is not a shrimp (take a look at the underside of the tail specifically the second plate. On a shrimp the second plate overlaps both the first and third plates, but on a prawn the second plate will only overlap the third plate.) So it seems sometimes Australians get it wrong.

I absolutely love Australia and would love to go there or even better live there one day!
