Re: How many languages do you know?

Beyond that its a few common words and phrases of random languages that I'd bet most people know anyway. I wish our schools here would have done ...

Re: Do you like cold winters or hot summers?

I have always preferred cold climates. I can't put my finger on why, but I just do. Some people say they love the cold, others hate the cold. But I have never met anyone who says they love the heat, it's such a strange thing to say. So I would guess most people prefer cold winters to hot summers an...

Re: If you could visit any country tomorrow, what country would it be?

Everyone has one country they would visit tomorrow if given the chance. I'd love to hear where everyone would go if given a free RT tomorrow. Definitely Canada. I’ve got this thing about Canada lately. I can’t say exactly why that specific country, but maybe it’s the Australian heat and all the res...

Thankfully the Pialligo fire has currently been downgraded to Advice level. It started in or near the Redwood Grove Forest, which is heritage protected - as to why it is sitting so close to critical infrastructure IMHO. The fire is burning away from the airport as is the smoke. The airport has not b...
