      This time of the year is a mixed blessing for those of us down-
      under. It means a relief from the blistering temperatures of summer
      (40 degC +) and a slide into the bliss of autumn until it is jumper
      time for winter. At least of those of us in Brisbane which is
      located in the subtropics. So we too celebrate this time :-)
