OK,
I'll be the first Aussie to say "THANK YOU".
All the others are probably getting over their drunken BBQ's and parties.
I spent the day in my shed working on my speedster project. Fitted up the firewall, hood former, radiator and hood. I cut the hole for the steering column and got the deck located squarely.
A good days work, me thinks.
Cheers,
Rob

More on Australia Day.
The 26th January marks the day that the "1st Fleet" of convicts arrived in Sydney Cove in 1788.
Each year there are more and more protests by a noisy minority. The problem is that these protests are getting more and more press and their case is getting stronger. Their case is that this day represents "White Invasion Day" and consequently they want it changed.
Yesterday there were flags burned, violent protest marches and general nastiness, all by a very noisy minority......but filling our TV screens in the evening.
The only other real date we could celebrate a national day would be the 1st January which is when all the states became Federated under the one constitution in 1901. But celebrating that on New Years day, would remove a holiday from the party scene.....NOT ON.
Cheers,
Rob

It was a typical Australia Day here in Perth. HOT, 42 Deg.

Cooking steak on our outside BBQ for the family was a challenge!

Rob, thanks for the short bit on Australian history, sounds strikingly familiar. Does sound like you enjoyed a very Happy Australia Day.

G'Day

G'Day David......Mate,
Perhaps you should spend a warm to hot Christmas down here, sitting on a beach (just a couple of miles from where I live,) sucking on a stubby or two. I'm escaping our winter to Glacier, Yellowstone and Dearborn/Detroit this July.
I hope you're well.
Cheers,
Rob
