Re: Aussie stuff
Have been off for a while with a few family dramas I will not bore

What Leda says is true! I am from NSW by birth but married a
Victorian and had to move "south of the border". I keep telling Rob
(husband) that our son is a half breed!
I actually said to him that when Dylan was due I wanted to drive to
Albury (on NSW-Vic border) so Dylan was born in NSW. I think for
awhile he believed me!

times, especially when you consider the physical size of the island,
we could after all be sunk in some of the lakes in the US. An Island
mentality, oh yes quite certainly, but it goes beyond that London in
particular can be very blinkered when looking at the rest of the
country. (Sorry Makr, I know how you feel about the city, I feel the
same about New York) but that might just be the way all Nations
Capital Cities are.
