    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Quite simply because many people don't know of its existence. Just because I wouldn't vote for independence doesn't mean I don't take an interest in loads of things pertaining to Scotland. I couldn't give a toss about Facebook. Had you heard of the McCrone report before today?

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Facebook? I've never looked at Facebook in my life. Oddly enough if I did have the chance I would not vote for Scottish Independence. I do know about the McCrone Report because my nephew born and raised in Thailand now living in New Zealand told me about it. You know ............ families do discuss all sorts of stuff and we both have a great interest in Scotland despite neither of us living there.

  5. I couldn't care less what the little lad does. The media are obsessed with the younger royals e.g. the Cambridges and Sussexes.
  6. Caroline Chisholm was born in Northampton in 1808. She arrived in Sydney in 1838 to find migrant women from Britain lying homeless and begging on the street. As others walked by she vowed to make a difference. Over the next 10 years the daughter of a wealthy English landowner became a thorn in the side of the establishment - writing letters, hounding bureaucrats and pestering the Governor to make conditions better for those arriving in the colony. She found lodgings and jobs for more than 10,000 women and girls. As a salute to her achievements her portrait was chosen for our original $5 note - the first woman other than the Queen to appear on Australian currency.

    My Experience Living in the NT

    Don't worry about it @PFC1975 Australia is a huge country with different climates, cultures etc. What suits some doesn't suit others. Some people dislike Sydney. I enjoyed living there. Seems a lot of people whinge endlessly about Perth. I really liked it and some people dislike Australia as a whole. With a bit of luck they manage to escape. Personally I like 4 distinct seasons hence we chose to retire to Tasmania. Now some people would whinge about Tasmania - because some people are just whingers but I love it here. It's not perfect by any means but where is?

    6 reasons that you came to live in Australia

    Life is what you make it @CazzDownUnder Some people will never settle here and wish they were back in their home country and others lead a very happy life in Australia. It's just another country and it's a long way from the UK but as Marisa stated above, you won't know until you give it a try. I've been happy here for nearly 38 years.

    Australia Prices cheaper now than in 1901

    We are a good bit older than you but I always asked myself 'do I want it or do I need it'. It was surprising how often the answer was 'I want it'. So I didn't get it. Some people however just can't do without what they want all the time then they wonder how they managed to get into debt. At least we didn't have any money worries and still managed to have a comfortable life.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Trump has postponed his visit to Denmark because the Danish Prime Minister refuses to discuss the sale of Greenland to the USA. A White House official confirmed that the entire trip to Denmark is being scrapped.

    Scratching your homesickness itch

    I'm the same. Go into the Reject Shop for an item and come out with at least 3 other things. Always useful things mind you.

    Project Man Cave

    I think that's Simmo's man cave at the far end of the picture. Looks very nice to me.
