Happy Australia Day!

Australia_day_25jan2006b Just another public holiday? Nah – it’s Australia Day – time to have a barbie, join a thong throwing competition (the type you wear on your feet – of course!), bet on a cockroach race, or head for the Harbour if you’re in Sydney! (Oh – there is also the Commonwealth Games baton running around Sydney today…)

And it’s probably appropriate at this point to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and that Australia Day celebrates the British invasion (and take over) of this country…
