Australia Day

Today is a special day for me. The day we remember nothing else but this Great Country Australia, who we are and how lucky we are to live here. Today we remember that we really are different, no not our economy, not our housing, not our resources - Us. You and Me. We are Australian. We are red dust plains and summer rains. We're true blue and fair dinkum.

We are different from anyone else in the world. As I sit here listening to John Williamson's "And the Band Playing Waltzing Matilda" I feel a little dose of Green and Gold Malaria coming on. You see the Australian people have a spirit that can't be found anywhere else in the world.

So today, forget about our economy, our over priced houses, our vacant shop fronts and remember Australian. You and me. It's not the land but the people. Get outside and cook a barbie, knock down a tilly, dance with a shelia, waltz a matilda. Love, laugh and hava go ya mug.
