FG Celebrating Australia Day

Hi Everyone, It's Australia Day.  I spent the morning at the Official
Ceremony.  There was a Naturalisation Ceremony, Awards for various
Australians of the Year, music, sausage sizzle, cake cutting, and lots of
other activities.  It's supposed to reach 42 C (107 F), so we're celebrating
inside! Oh, just a bit of trivia.  The Coat of Arms has a kangaroo and and
emu because neither animal can go backwards.  They must go forward.  Also,
Australia is the only country that eats its National animals.  BOL! Cheers,
Flat George
