And so I would, had it been interesting and/or important. Thankfully, it's not. =) (btw, which part of Aus are you in? I'm not aware of many Antipodeans in the D movement.)

Do you know the Rogans of Wollongong? Am good friends with one of them. :)

English (Yorkshire, actually). Moved here in 97. Considering going back, as my two sons have too much "oi" in their "oh".

I'm tired of seeing the English football team always blowing their chance of doing something special in the last few minutes of every international contest that they've been in (except for the '66 cup, of course -- and they almost blew that one). Paul

You're not wrong. It was excruciating watching the second half and extra time, as the Australians gradually clawed themselves back from behind. Thank goodness for the golden boot of Mr Wilkinson. The sad thing is that I've no doubt that the English sports "community" will now become as arrogant and overbearing as the Australian one is. There was a bit of TV coverage the other day with some English fan teasing the Australian staff at Sydney airport saying some like "see this, this is a rugby ball. Do you want us to show you how to use it?". Sigh. Doh!. The Australians have won the world cup twice. Success begets smugness, I suspect. :( Anyway, it's all irrelevant. Cycling rules!
