Happy what day?
Happy Australia Day I guess.
What will you be getting up to?
Me? I will treat it like any normal day because:
1. I am not Australian, just living here
2. I don't agree that it should be celebrated. But that's my opinion.
I will get up, work on the "Project" a bit and go for a swim in the pool for a half hour.
Happy what day?

Pool party and barbeque for me
Dean what was wrong with the little one?
So that is national holiday in Australia?
A few things happen:
1. People get the day off work and watch Cricket or Tennis on TV.
2. Barbecues take place and people spend the day around the pool.
3. Internationals receive Australian Citizenship
But the real purpose of Australia Day, which defines the reason why I feel it should not be celebrated is this:
It marks the date that Captain Cook and his fleet of British Soldiers touched down in Australian land and fought and killed many Aboriginal people in order to take their land and place it under British Rule, which it still stands.
The Aboriginals call it Mourning Day because of the many thousands of their people who fought and died during that war with Britain in order to try and save their country.
After Britain gained control of Australia, the British started to move in. They took Aboriginal children and turned them into slaves to serve the white man (The British). This is known as "The Stolen Generation".
So, to me, as an Irish Man who's country faced similar situations with The British, I feel such a day should not be celebrated.
Just my 2c.
I hear you Aussies are getting a heat wave right now
What is the avg temp at night time?
That's insane. Can't wait till it gets warm here. Not HOT just warm. I don't want anymore cold.

Here in Bendigo for the next 3 days it will be averaging 42+ and 26+ at night.
Think I'll stick to Darwin I haven't known it to get past 36 here.
