    Default Oz

    It's nice to read something nice about yourself -

    Australia No 1 for prosperity | The Australian

    And even nicer to share it with your friends.

    Sure, sweet Captain.

    But not only are we a Continent but we claim half of another Continent.

    Do you think we are greedy?

    One of the things that struck me when I moved to Canberra was the number of redheads. I am sure we have more than our fair share.

    And just south of Canberra are vast winter snowfields.

    And the air in Canberra is always crisp.

    And no flies at all.

    And just a short drive to the surf.

    And a shorter drive to the mountains.

    We have four Universities, and the National University is one of the top Universities in the world. And of course we have an Art School and a Music School.

    And Canberra is the only successfully designed and planned Capital City in the world. And Canberra is beautiful, convenient and safe.

    This is the lucky City in the lucky country.

    Although a higher incidence of redheads might just trump that.

    Yes, it is odd.

    And although I am a platinum blonde myself, I have come to appreciate redheads.

    Why redheads are concentrated here, I don't know. I mean we don't have a sieve for redheads. So I expect it is genetic.

    I like redheads though. Redheads seem to complement platinum blondes.

    But of course blondes have more fun.

    I just got back from having a cigarette on the back porch. Late afternoon, ~36 degrees C, with about 40 dragonflies flying around within a 5m radius of me. I guess it's not all bad.
