Must be something to some of those gory legends, after all...!!
Why, there was one only last week who was officially reported as missing...had set off from some place up in New South Wales....

And then there are the tourists who go for a dip in croc-infested waters.

Re: The land of milk and honey - boomerangs and kangas!

I've got fond memories of you Aussie jokers. Back in 1961 I worked in Queensland for 3 months harvesting broom millet but before that someone told us that there was an outfit that bought kangaroo meat at 1/6d a pound. We just had to meet up with the refrigerated truck at a designated time. We had 3 kangas and waited and waited and waited in amongst some trees. After 3 days of 40C we left the whole stinking mess behind the trees and drove off!

Maybe they are big on Tyneside, not Dundee.
