Don't the Aussies have enough problems with poisonous bugs, snakes, lizards, jellyfish, spiders, birds, flowers, frogs, flies, bees, Foster's Beer, toilet water circling the wrong way, and having to admit that Mel Gibson is a native son?

Shame, shame! :D


You forgot the platypus.

Don't forget "Prisoner Cell Block H" as well. The Aussies deserve everything they get, just for that alone. ;)

What about The Sullivans? And The Young Doctors? Sons and Daughters? :D ;) :D We loved those in our house. :oops: The chip pan caught fire whilst my Mum was engrossed in Sons and Daughters, nearly burnt the kitchen down! :o

I loved Sons & Daughters, The Sullivans and A COUNTRY PRACTICE.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
