I like the american plates, more a picture background, which captures the beauty or unique feature of that state.
Yes and in this instance Queensland is a winner by a mile.

Sunshine State is probably not that bad a description?? Smart state only lasted 10 minutes.

If the comp is on again, I would wager they would go, 'World Class' or 'World Leader State', for all brisbaneites who survive the total traffic choas G20 will cause.

This thunder sure is frightening but at least its not hot any longer.
If it was going to get any hotter I would have sold my story to the daily mail.

Really summer and storms have not started yet, this is just a rumble on the storm scale and as for the heat, summer will arrive when eggs fry, candles melt, you arrive home and think the dog has pooped on the floor but realise its just your advent calender melted down the wall

I don't know but it's amusing, Aussies sure have weird ways of doing things, it's all new to me!

So we can expect a 'cor wot a scorcher' headline by RR in the next month or so then? Fairly pathetic storm down here and the BOM radar shows it as being quite close.

We're the same in a lot of ways though, Molly. Fr'instance, we all go to the loo the same way. The water in the bowl apparently swirls a different way when you flush in this hemisphere, though. I actually don't believe the last bit

Very true , you've no idea how disappointed I was though when the water went down the plug hole the right way...I flew all this way to see that! And to cuddle a drop bear! Damn you Aussies! Lol. X

I'll let you know how we survive. Currently living in an apartment on the river at Southbank. Think it will be easiest to take the bus to school rather than try to drive the 4km across the exclusion zone. Walking to city will be the go - off to Queensland Ballet's performance of Coppelia at the River Stage this weekend and I think we'll just walk the Good Will Bridge.

Beer and wine go down the same way. That's all that really matters.

Its a joke, honestly. I've had an eye appointment cancelled, made 8 months ago, because the clinic is on South Bank and they've decided its easier togive the staff a week off. We also had a trip to Albion dog track planned forworknext Thursday and have now been told the track is closing due to G20.

Well the kids have told me that school is not teaching any new work next week because they're not expecting anyone to turn up. Looks like a week for swimming and studying for exam block. Hope the noisy helicopters don't keep us awake all night though.
