Australians are stuck in the mould of the team from Their a weird mob, although I thought the sequel where they take a ute around Australia was better.

No matter how far you go past the black stump - Aussies are about the same, although you can tell a newbie in Tennant Creek, by how he/she opens his/her beer and if he/her has to be sober to take an engine out of a truck.

Catherine, before your time there was Ed Kiser, he and I had a great time discussing all the nuances of water supply system, moon angles, Beckfoot layout, and the Swallow. I miss his wit, unlike Malcolm Fraser it is not a blank book. Good Aussie joke.

There were a lot of negative comments about plumbing, but Ed and I had fun.
