Come on Stu,
                              Some of us are descended from the soldiers who accompanied the convicts.
They were no better than the convicts, though. Probably much worse!
Anyway, from whom did we get our love of the amber? It certainly wasn't from the Aborigindiginees! I must admit, though, they were fast learners.
I spent Australia Day in Sydney wandering around the Motorfest.
Too many cars and not enough bikes but were all well worth seeing. Also far too many people.
And we had to drink our beer from plastic tumblers! Unaustralian!

I think it's funny how that convict thing keeps on popping up,

Yeah, Cus.
                       I reckon those Pommys are dirty because their ancestors didn't get caught!

I prefer to think of Ozzies and New Zealanders standing shoulder to shoulder with us at places like Gallipoli and Tobruk. Between us we lost 31,430 brave men in the former, and repelled the might of Rommel's Africa Corps in the latter......... Brave men, one and all.
My only two problems with you is. 1/. What the bloody hell were New Zealanders thinking when they became the first country to give women the vote?......... 2/.Ozzies, stop pretending Canberra is your capital. Ask 99% of the rest of the world and they will tell you it's Sydney. It wasn't a very good joke in the first place and it didn't improve with age!

Metalflake, I think your more than halfway to being an Aussie anyway: you are often online at my midday lunchbreak, which must be middle of night in UK!

Musky, love your stats ,as a financial adviser I'd say you are on the button , (particularly the AIG info I was a manager for them for my sins ) infact should you wish i could appoint you as our rep in your wonderful country ,partime of course, so as not to interfere with the biking however that would entail you coming to the uk for a 2 week training course part of which would be to drink your entire 22 gallons yearly amount of alcohol ,! (each week ) We'd be forced to help as well, hic !! Or do we go down the postal route ,just how much beer can you get into an A4 envelope?? and you'd have to dry out the paperwork, ,best wishes BobH

 Thanks for the job offer Bob. Will have to get into shape as my weekly average is 3 gallon of beer and a pint of muscat, but I would be lucky to walk 5 miles, thats why I have motorcycles. Will have to make it around IOM time, one of the pubs on the course as a venue.
 I believe what we do here is a form of recycling.
