As there seems to be more comunique between Australia and the US via this forum than through diplomatic channels I thought it was the done thing to wish all our US cousins including Rob Heyen "Happy Australia Day" a day when we celebrate a convict pinching a sheep to eat while trespassing before committing suicide. We love our land Henry Ford was born here emigrated to the states for the greater good, our through street in Allora is Ford Street named after Henry's Irish forebears. We are pleased to be of assistance anytime you need us,luv your all.

January the 26th., is the equivalent to U.S.A.'s 4th of July, except on that date in 1788 men from Britain set foot on this continent to establish the first white settlement here. Over the years there has been constant interaction between America and Australia. Aspiring gold miners travelled in both directions seeking their fortunes. Many Americans have brought their expertise to Oz (Harold Clapp, Cobb of Cobb and Co to name just two) and many Australians have taken their skills to share with Americans. There are many Fords (people) and Fords (cars) here too, to say nothing of the fact that every river and stream had a Ford before bridges were built.
