Posted:A good friend of mine just got back from Oz, and she told how great it. It is not just her, everyone who comes back from there wants to go back.

I myself will be popping over there meself in about 6 months, can't wait. If it is half what what they say it is, I will start setting up moving there in about 4 years. England is good but it is lacking something.

What do you lot think? Has any of you been to oz or even better moved out there to live?

Posted:Unfortunately they will be shutting down the brewery in the next two years, and they are going through redundancies now. Most of the people in the call centre have been here forever though, and just want to take the money and go.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:Yessssss what to say about Flynt...

I think she's one of the nice things about Australia. ` but i hear she has a MASSIVE ego...

i also hear she's incredibly dense about associating ppls jobs with their alcaholism... i hear she makes great pancakes and has weird taste in men, and doesnt like brushing her hair, and thinks blue caracoa is from the devil....

Posted:I heard (most) of the piece triplej did yesterday on the brewery closing; is such a shame.

You're right about the food too. Now I'm thirsty & ravenous!

Flynt, I believe blue curacao is from one of the devils henchmen, the devil himself is responsible for black sambucca.........
