Hi Woody.... smile.gif

Its cold here in England as well, -4 last night and could be down to -6 tonight...
all white over with frost this morning.... ohmy.gif
No wind for us though....that always makes it feel much colder. The days are bright and sunny which makes a change from the British cold and damp.

Have a good time in Australia I do envy you the sunshine.....

Margaret..... cool.gif

It was in the 50s here in Tampa this week. Yuck! So glad we don't have snow.... There was a fierce wind and rainstorm the other night but the big tornado touched down about 120 miles northeast of here.

Woody, have fun in Australia. I love the koalas and fairy penguins, even the echidnas are kinda cute!

Hi Woody,

I am catching up with all the news as it is a long time since I have been on S.P. site.

Wow! you and Troy are off to Oz, you lucky guys, escaping the cold weather, you don't fancy taking me with you in a LARGE package do you?....... laugh.gif

I have a friend who is chief librarian in Sydney Uni, she went over from England many moons ago and she loves the place, and wants me to go over and visit..............I will one day.


Have a super time, as I am sure you will, make a diary and post in on Solid perfume when you come back so we can all have a good read, take lots of photo's.

Love to you both,
Elly.x

Very best travel wishes to you Woody and Troy. smile.gif

We have several friends who have been "down under"several times. They had a very good time, trip and came back to the States with all kinds of good memories. I'm sure you both will as well.

Take care and let us know how it all went. One friend told me concerning the plane ride... a person just sleeps, eats, see the in flight movie and eat some more and you are there! laugh.gif

laugh.gif Wheeee!!! Here they come!!

The shrimp IS on the barbie and there is also a vegemite sandwich awaiting them!

The weather is HOT, HOT, HOT so I hope they've brought some sunblock to SLIP, SLOP and SLAP !!

Flies have been good this year - they have kept away . . . . well I haven't seen many in Sydney anyway. Still, a good fly swat comes in handy.

So, looking forward to seeing the American tourists soon!

Adios and have a good flight over! cool.gif

Hi Margaret, it's a kind of Lobster - sometimes referred to as a Bay Lobster. Mostly found in Australia.

This will be on the test at the end of the semester .... laugh.gif
