    A couple of years ago some Aussie friends decided they were going to celebrate Australia day properly in England - with a barbie on the beach.

    Leaving aside the fact that it's freezing cold, the main problem is that barbecue charcoal is a somewhat seasonal product and not many places carry much stock in January.
    Instead they got smokeless coal (well it's black and it burns = same thing) - it wasn't a great sucess!

    I'm practically unknown in my own neighborhood even though I'm quite big down under. Happy Australia day.

    You mean like J-Lo is big down under? Actually, I guess her bigness is mostly "out-back" so Happy Australia Day to J-Lo, too.

    Everyone I've spoken to there had a lovely day of various swims.

    We've had a northern hemsiphere barbie too. Luckily not too cold outside, and luckily no smokeless coal:eek: Smokeless but not tasteless!

    For those who may not know (including me up until a few minutes ago), Australia was used as a penal colony by Britian early in OZ's history.

    Apparently it is a light-hearted joke between them now. Happy Australia Day!

    Ah. That explains it. The only vacation that I've ever had my hotel room broken into was in Australia. I woke up at 3am to discover that someone was on my third floor balcony trying to get the door open. I was about to call the cops when I saw the inside blinds open. I yelled at him to get out of my room and heard "No worries, mate!". That phrase holds a special meaning for me now. :tongue:
