Sorry Jerricho old boy. Just come in from beside the pool, a very pleasant 38C today.

(No, not at home at the moment! :ok: )

Let's face it. In a few years time when the oil's run out everywhere else and the Gulf stream stops flowing...

They'll still have oil in Canada;
they'll still have forests which they can chop down;
and they'll still have bears;

...but they'll still have to import beaver from eastern Europe... :E

Time to emigrate to warm climates, love the cold crisp blue skies get in the Alps or Rockies, hate the British winter with a vendgance. The fall colours are making up for it at the moment and so pretty at work across the airstrip especially in the early morning mist.

Old Man Winter may have arrived in your part of the world, but here in BrisVegas, Hot Lady Summer has arrived early... it's going to be 35C today.

There's sure to be lots of bikini clad babes at the beach, bodies glistening with a hint of sweat.

At least you can look forward to catching some sun in January.

Brizvegas hasnt got a bloody beach.

True. Unless you count the "beach" at Southbank Parklands.

Wasn't inferring Brisbane had a decent beaches. Naturally, everyone heads to the Goldie or the Sunshine coast, luckily not far away at all. I'm sure most Brisbane people think of the Gold Coast as an honorary part of Brisbane during summer. Or we head to the backyard pools...


7th Oct 2005, 08:16
well..... darwhine hasn't got beach you can swim at either, unless you want to end up on the front page of the NT news :(
Katherine.... 39 degrees... Blue sky..tinged with smoke
What more could a man want?? (or a women). Maybe somewhere slightly cooler and with better beer perhaps...but hey??

7th Oct 2005, 10:22
Got my winter sorted. Out of the UK on December 30th and back on April 2nd. Mainly Oz in between. Oh I do like this retirement...

Thank you for sharing your nice cool northern air. Walked out on the patio this AM at 0400 CDT with a cup of coffee. What a delight the temp down to 70F, northern breezes 20-25mph.

Life don't get better than this!!!

Oh GG, has you been drinking them bloody alco-pop things again. Christ, I'd rather drive to Bribie Island.

Tin once owned a house at Bongaree.

7th Oct 2005, 21:09
RT once inhabited a house in Watson's Bay, (we called it Caligula's Boot) across the street from the manager for OZ PAN AM. It was a while ago and winter could be tricky...but the beach was great.

Sorry for the delay in posting the link. One has been familiarising oneself with vast quantities of alcohol, and suffering as a result.
