No one can deny he is a champ on the field

Weather or not...Coldest christmas day on record

Residents in two bushfire-affected states awoke to a white Christmas, while Queenslanders sweltered in hot and humid conditions.

Storms caused havoc in suburban Melbourne, while residents in a NSW town were celebrating record drought-breaking rain.

Snow fell in Victoria and Tasmania,' which are still battling fires that have blackened thousands of hectares this month, and in alpine areas of NSW.

Meanwhile, Queenslanders in many regions sweltered through high temperatures and humid conditions.'at 3pm Monday it was 4 degrees celcius here at mt Dandenong vic'

Brisbane recorded a muggy 32 degrees, with temperatures in far north Queensland reaching as high as 37 in areas like Weipa on the Cape York Peninsula and Normanton on the Gulf of Carpentaria.

One Christmas Wreath

with frangapani trim

Wreath Making

Now, where can I glue this cat on this wreath!

Merry Christmas to everyone!

I wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to my friends, but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So I met with my attorney yesterday, and on his advice I wish to say the following:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the summer solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2007, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great (not to imply that Australia is necessarily greater than any other country) and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no
promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for
her/himself or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is
revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

Disclaimer: No trees were harmed in the sending of this message; however, a significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

Have a very Merry Christmas And a Joyous New Year.

HMAS 'Kanimbla' returns home in shadow of Black Hawk tragedy

photo John Sheil

Australian troops have returned home after a 45-day deployment on board HMAS Kanimbla.

The 800 soldiers were on stand-by in waters off Fiji during political unrest in the country.

The deployment was marred by the Black Hawk tragedy late last month that killed Townsville pilot Captain Mark Bingley and SAS Trooper Joshua Porter.

Major General Ash Power says those who witnessed the tragedy continued to work professionally.

"They just got on with the job," he said.

"They were quickly into the water to rescue those involved in the accident. They immediately embarked on to the search for the missing soldier.

"They also remained focus on the job at hand, the mission was to be there postured to go in to Fiji if required and they remained focused on the mission so I couldn't be prouder of them."

It's expensive to be a woman

LASHING OUT: At $150 a set they are the smallest - 8mm long - and most expensive fashion look to take-over Adelaide. Each lash costs $3. Read story now

Flying Kangaroo as roadkill, *sobs

IF the Americans gain a stake in Qantas, the flying kangaroo's unique character is likely to become road kill.

Not because of financing plans which will see planes mortgaged, or because of expectations of further cost-cutting or restructuring.

An American stake in Qantas will stuff the Aussie icon because the in-flight experience in the nation that invented the aeroplane is about 20 years behind what we're used to. And they simply don't understand what Australian travellers expect.

Qantas's international economy, much as we love to grumble about it, is almost at business-class level in terms of US carriers, whose contribution to the modern in-flight experience has basically been to bolt wings and a tail on to a Greyhound bus (with a couple of extra toilets down the back).

In-flight entertainment is either very ordinary or works on a pay-per-view basis; the meals are spartan (if they exist); and in-flight service is basic at best. And don't try to order a Bundy and Coke.

Technically, while Qantas might still be majority Australian-owned even if a consortium headed by Macquarie Bank and US private equity group Texas Pacific succeeded in taking control, it would be a takeover that really would take the "Q" out of Qantas.

Texas Pacific, the aviation brains behind the buyout group, might know all about American travellers -- but we Aussies are a very different breed.
