This is a sort of thing that charms visitors to Australia no end.

I can't fail to be impressed by this. Even if it would be naff and out of the ordinary in London.

I quite like it when I see displays of 'practicality' ...

It was true.

I suspect it was a bikini bottom - but the whole thing looked like she'd got out of bed and driven up to the hardware store door.

We live in a little village and people do these things.

She was out and in, in 45 seconds. I don't think she would have done it from the Coles carpark.

kevin got into trouble with TheONE last week for wearing daisy dukelike shorts ... With a T shirt... Funny how aussie blokes appreciate that kind of look unless its THeir "good little aussie bint" thats sporting it...

Made me laugh, what does he think attracted him to her in the first place? Her stunning wit (she's a natural blonde) or her 5ft 7" legs up to her arm pits, size 6, natural blonde toned bod she wears???? With a DD cup thrown in

DUH!

It's getting to the stage where it is hardly worth taking them down.

On boxing day they will start wheeling out the easter eggs. I am sure it was no different when we were kids, we just didn't notice.

Anyone noticed that Mars Bars are shrinking and you don't get many chips for 10p anymore?

On the upside there seem to be fewer priests buggering young boys.

It's progress, overall.
