    Well I grew up in England

    and came here when I was aged 27. I will always consider myself English even though I am an Australian Citizen. I have always got on well with the Australians as I have never been one to compare England to Australia. English people who keep on about how great England is...

    Road Rage

    There is a road between my home and the clinic, where I work. It is a long, straight and has only a single lane each way. It's a fast road, with no traffic lights and has a 90 km speed limit. As you can imagine, one slow car ruins the show for everyone behind and on this day...

    Yesterday I read about the woman Sydney forgot.

    ..Natalie Wood, who lay dead in her home for 8 years, not missed by a soul. The account of her very lonely, austere life had me in tears and hit home a little, I guess. Every life is of value. You can read the article here http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/natalie-wood-the-woman...

    Purple Liza The Funnel Web Spider And Sparkle

    We have a huge but harmless spider in Australia called a Huntsman. One summer when my daughter was a toddler, a large Huntsman took up residence in the cornice in our living room. We named her, "Sparkle."  She coexisted with us happily in the house until one day she was gone...

    Best Aussie Pick Up Line Ever:

    An Aussie walks into a pub and takes a seat next to a very attractive woman.. He gives her a quick glance then casually looks at his watch for a moment. The woman notices this and asks, 'Is your date running late?' 'No', he replies,'I just got this state-of the-art watch...

    Death Sentence for the Bali Nine Ring Leaders.

    I have NO problem with their fate at all. 1) It is now all over the media and I am sure among many in the community that the 2 ring leaders many would discuss the pro-con of such punishment. Indeed, many would talk about the merit of death sentence itself. 2) Allow me to...

    I miss Australia very very much.

    I lived there for almost 11 years. It was the happiest time in my life, besides certain aspects of my childhood. I miss the people and nature. I miss the smell. It breaks my heart to watch a docu or anything about Australia. I will forever be grateful for all the happy memories...

    I often get asked if I'm Aboriginal,

    usually by complete strangers. When I tell them I'm not they look at me in disbelief and dispute my ethnicity. I have had arguments and racial slurs yelled at me. I don't feel the need anymore to prove myself as I once did. What for? I don't care anymore. I do love living in...

    In verse two he sings about 'Mulling Up' which is Australian slang for chopping up a bud of marijuana with usually scissors in a small ball before smoking it either with a b0ng, a pipe or rolling it in to a joint. In verse three he says actually about having a b0ng. This song is...
