Hey Light..I was just about to start a thread about Australia day...along with the really hard australia day quiz...

Well, our biking gang is doing a camping/mtn biking weekend. Ian & some folks are already down in Dwellingup probably drinking a smidgen ;)...(i couldn''t get today off) and planning some evening rides..

It's gonna a be HOT HOT HOT this weekend...40c forecasted for tomorrow, 39c saturday..I can see us sitting by a (possible) waterfall (there might not be any water at the moment..) during the day & biking later in the day.

Sad to say we're unable to roast marshmallows or anything dealing with campfires-that'll have to wait until our fall camp n ride..

Enjoy your day.

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY GIRLS

I'm a teller of stories, I'm a singer of songs;
I am Albert Namatjira, and I paint the ghostly gums.
I'm Clancy on his horse, I'm Ned Kelly on the run;
I'm the one who waltzed Matilda, I am Australian.

I'm the hot wind from the desert, I'm the black soil of the plains;
I'm the mountains and the valleys, I'm the drought and flooding rains.
I am the rock, I am the sky, the rivers when they run;
The spirit of this great land, I am Australian.

We are one, but we are many;
And from all the lands on earth we come.
We'll share a dream, and sing with one voice,
"I am, you are, we are Australian."

(SEEKERS)

Thanks, TH! I feel ever so much more learned now for that link. History - the good and the bad - I love it. I even know who the Seekers are and can sing along (that's the bad, getting old).

What a great Idea Thistle!!!

I've been on my 35km ride up Mt Cootha this morning... now I'm waiting for BF to come home from Mt Nebo and Mt Glorious. Got home and had a Vegimite sandwhich

Then maybe some lamingtons while listening to TRIPLE J'S HOTTEST 100... But first I'm going back to bed... Sure I saw the sun rise did a great challenging ride... But I'm exhaused...

Ah yes a long weekend - not sure what we'll be up to for the rest of the day but it was certainly buzzing on our local bike/walk/run track earlier this morning - there are obviously lots of people making the most of the day off to get out in the fresh(ish Sydney) air. Have a good weekend.
