Wow...  Good thing it wasn't an American Flag (Note the Capital Letters - A Sign Of Respect).  They're not even allowed to touch the ground, from what I hear.  Wonder how off topic we can go with this???

Actually, I was over in Kadina the other week and nearly bought myself a glittery 'cabaret' style hat in Aussie flag colours from their two dollar-style shop...  What a shame I didn't. 

What's that you say - 'Where's Kadina?'

How un-australian is that?

Crikey! The beaches are packed. They're still giving out ozy flags, they must be desperate or something...
Rscole --> Still got it, I'll take it to the next cricket game I go to Tongue out

There are 'free' events going on all around the place, and nice weather. Sitting at 29 right now!

Well, hope you're not sunburnt.  And, FYI, it is now officially the Day After Australia Day.

Oh my aching compatriots' heads....
