Everyone has spiders Tony! The wildlife (including the spiders) and scenery is something we cherish here. Beautiful one day - and the next. Many people who visit, don't want to leave. That Martin Clunes series was from 2016 and was great to watch. Hope to see you here in the west some day!

Our lovely Kylie! I reckon she's spent a lot of cash to maintain that look. She's a very down to earth woman and has a heart of gold and is loved by most of us down here. She has a work ethic second to none and is proud to be an Aussie.

Is there a particular reason why you say that Taboo?

No there isn't Isac. I'm not a fan of her songs either and have no particular reason for it other than she doesn't appeal to me. Just like
women with tattoos turn me off so does Kylie. I know it sounds crazy but maybe she reminds me of my ex wife :grin:.
Great add though!

Cheers Taboo. I was just interested. I'm the same for some pretty high profile artists as well. Because I'm a muso (60's) some artists and songs - if you can call them songs - to me are rubbish, but we all have our own tastes I guess. I won't list them because some may cop a bit of a flack. I'm with you on the tatts thing, I really don't get it. Yeah it's a great ad.

I wouldn't say I care for her music at all just think she's a good looking lady, especially for her age :grin:

PS
I'm in total agreement re. tattoos and while we're on the subject ... puffed up lips as well :oops: YUKK

PPS
When you say everyone has spiders Isac YES but not like yours in Aus, think I would be using a few extension tubes and more if I did any Macro shots on the vast majority of them ... OMG :exit:

1. I think her best asset is her work ethic and she's just a lovely caring person. I'm not a fan of her music either.
2. 100% agree. Imagine having a pash and it springs a leak - now that would be a big YUKK!
3. Last death in Oz from a redback bite was in 1956. We have it under control with antivenin. Funnelwebs only hang out over east (Sydney mainly) so here in the West is OK.

Great and attractive advertisement video... I've seen a few for Australia. Just ain't for my time of life I guess, it'd take me too long to adjust... though there's a lot I do like about the Aussie way of looking at life and working.

Cheers Trevor. It's easy to get used to, we have air conditioning now and there are a lot of backyard pools. We do love our lifestyle here and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else on the planet - especially now with this pandemic about. I hope you stay safe and all get through it OK.

Oh I never had any doubt about Australia being up-to-date and having amenities like air conditioning! Come on, Australia also has a space agency cooperating with NASA in a partnership for Moon-to-Mars exploring plans, and you're already going into the Artemis lunar program (I worked in the Space business hence my interest). I'm also sure that I'd get a property there with more area than I have here for the same money and I ain't got a loan for it so that'd work okay too, plus there's more public open space, less crowding. Just that I'm done with all the travelling now after my career and I have a *really* complex set-up for my workshop / home lab / etc. here that'd take me years just to re-build! If it were 20 years ago right now, I'd be trying to find a way to emigrate - if you'd have me (I do have good engineering qualifications of course!).

Of course we'd have you mate and all your family and friends. Plenty of room here. We built our home in 2004 for AU$181k and it's now worth $650k (£380k). It's a 4 bed/2 bath, double brick with clay tile roof (238 sqr/metres - 2850 sqr/ft) with all the mod-cons, corner block with dual access, underground power and services, salt pool etc. It really was a dream to be able to afford a new home back then. There are cheaper homes from $450k upwards. We are 15km from the city centre so everything is close by. This is our home HERE. Isn't it great that with modern tech we can chat all round the world.

Being Canadian, I see that wall for the entrance and I think "That is perfect to hide behind for snowball fights" :)

I've heard people talk about snow but never seen or experienced it. We used to have hose fights when we were kids. I'm used to the warmer climate so I don't think I'd love it that much. It's great that we are all different.

G'day all

Reading the above chatter, I also extend a serious invitation to you all to consider a "Tour Downunder" ..... but please do not follow my UK cousin of 25yrs ago where he flew into Sydney, flew to 2 or 3 other large cities, then after 1-week here flew home again - telling his mates that he had seen Oztralia

One month to 6 months is needed - hire a quality campervan sort of chariot and make something of your time here

As I am 'in the tourism lifestyle' via motorhome travelling for 3/4 of most years, feel free to chat off-line with me (or Isac or Taboo) about suggestions and places and costs
