MY COUNTRY
I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of drought and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

Dorothea Mackellar

Happy Australia Day …. especially for those people who used to work at Kimberley-Clark paper mill in Millicent.

I love my country …. not too sure about the inhabitants who are too cheap to buy locally made tissues.

Happy Australia Day … to all of those who will be paying an extra tax to fix up flood damage because there is no spare money stashed away for a rainy day, and we have to have a shiny new National Broadband Network which will be obsolete before it is finished if it isn’t already and  get the budget back into surplus on time!

I love my country … not too sure about the inhabitants who vote for our leaders.
