I live in Victoria but that does not mean I am a Victorian.
I worry about those followers of the state religion (Victorian Rules Football) which was started as something for cricketers to do in winter, who follow the team Essendon but call it Esserdon. Possibly people who live in that suburb do so as well but I do not know any of them.

Most of the radio and television commentators I have heard call Bathurst, "Bath-ist."
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Oh the lack of education in southern states!

I think Terry should hive this off on another thread if he has the time.

I think you are right Terry, probably no need to keep this waffle in the archives or have Hayseed working creating a new thread.
