Aussie Pride

I am so proud to be an Aussie right now. With the disaster in Victoria, a country in recession manges to find personal donation of $77 million dollars. The Aussie Battler never does it alone.

And that Koala? Jeez, we've all seen the video, but it still moves me to tears. And I don't even like koalas.




In other news - not much. Check back in a few days.

LOL, I am not alone in saying I do not like Koalas either then? They are usually so viscious! Of course, if an animal is thirsty..well, I bet it'd do backflips for a drink of H2O. Poor bugger!

Good work Aussies! It is amazing how so many people can come together during a tragedy. Makes me feel better about people.

That fucking spam dude is making the rounds of everyone in my blogroll!

Delete, delete and delete!

SORRY!

I can't watch any more news about the fire. It's so upsetting. I just want the healing to begin now.

I always find that koala goes better with a light onion and beatroot jus washed down with a mellow shiraz.

OMG stephen...
When I saw the first photo of that koala drinking water I thought it was photoshopped. Amazing, but not so surprising when you realise the poor thing must have been in shock.

I tried to give a koala a drink of water once. He spit it out and cursed me because it wasn't beer. Damn ungrateful animals!

Hey, I gave to the Melbourne fund and I'm 9000 miles away. That's gotta count for something.
