I know we are a long way from the rest of the world, but some people really don't know much about Australia!

I would say that Australia's status as a country is far better informed here than as a continent.  :)  --- tk

You are better informed than the college professor in the news story, tk!

As an aside, we have been watching the Peong Chang Winter Olympics. What an amazing opening ceremony! I can't get my head around all those drones making the image of the skier in the sky. Marvellous. Don't think I could handle the minus 20-something degrees though!

And I didn't know that Australia has many winter sports players.  None from your area, Darryl, I suppose.  --- tk

Ha Ha, no chance of any snow up this way.
I have seen snow though, down around Canberra and the snowfields of perisher and Thredbo. We all very proud of Matt Graham winning silver in the Moguls. We are not known for our prowess in snow sports.
