Gíday, itís me popping to say hello for this week. Itís the 4th of July and anyone on the planet knows that itís American Independence Day. Itís a national holiday in the US, so I hope this newsletter finds you enjoying a bbq or perhaps a family gathering. Good weather is on the menu for today, Iím sure.
Here in Australia weíre pretty much in the middle of winter and some of our southerly states have been coping it a beauty, with fierce wind storms, and heavy rains. I live in Brisbane, and itís been pretty cold here too, although weíve been enjoying beautiful sunny days Ė just the nights get pretty cold.
Last Sunday I posted an article about a wonderful motor drive visitors can take in Victoria. Itís called the Great Ocean Road and it hugs the southern coastline of Victoria for most of its 243 kms. Hereís the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art171149.asp Iíve travelled this road many times and never fail to see something new each time.
