    Brisbane Heat

    Hi all I read a comment the other day about the heat in Brisbane which alarmed me and I would like to get some perspective on it from other people who live there ... the comment was that I'd be relieved to be indoors as it is so hot outdoors; the trouble is that we are moving to Brisbane for a more outdoor lifestyle and I don't want to go from being stuck indoors because of the cold, to being stuck indoors because of the heat ... so here are my questions: Roughly for how much of the year does the Brisbane heat/humidity make you want to stay indoors for the air con? and for how much of the day? Also there were comments about the rain that got me as well: I know it has rained more than usual this last couple of years but how much does that affect your outdoors lifestyle? I.e. is it short sharp bursts of rain followed by sunshine or is it constant rain which forces you indoors for days on end? Thanks in advance ...

    Is anyone into Geocaching

    For any that don't know what Geocaching is it is a free high-tech world wide treasure hunt (although you can restrict it to the area you live in if you want to) where you log on to the Geocaching site to get clues and then use your GPS to find caches hidden by other players. It's a fun outdoors thing to do especially if you like treasure hunts. You can look for other people's caches or set up your own for others to find. I only started recently and have been stunned by how many people (including kids) are doing it. There are special ones for kids where they can get little toys out of the cache provided they pop a replacement back into it for the next person to find. Is anyone else doing it?
  3. BRITAIN may not boast the best weather but that doesn't stop us indulging in alfresco love-making, an exclusive Sun sex survey reveals. Just over half of the 2,124 people questioned said they'd romped in the great outdoors. The survey reveals that raunchy Brits are also a fan of sex toys — with 43 per cent admitting to using them — while 40 per cent owned up to getting jiggy in a public place. A third of those quizzed said they had watched porn with their lover, while 18 per cent of ladies and nine per cent of blokes confessed to dressing up in a fantasy costume to please their partner. But while we might be having adventurous sex, we're not having it very often. When asked how many times they would get busy in the bedroom each month, nearly one third claimed NOT AT ALL. 48% of men had never looked at porn online. 8% admitted looking regularly. The rest of the survey can be found here http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/3817615/Its-great-outdoors.html
  4. This is a really basic (dumb) question ....... we are thinking of moving our two kids (aged 7 & 4) to either Melbourne or Sydney. We currently live in Belfast, however my wife has good job opportunities in Oz. I have been researching life in Melbourne and Sydney and the postings are really useful from other users (big thanks). Although it rains 110% of the time in Ireland - it has occured to me that if my kids run between the raindrops in reality they spend alot of time outdoors here. Is this achievable for example in a Melbourne suburb? The Primary Schools sensibly have 'Sun policies' etc - do kids get to do much outdoors at school? I am assuming the summer months are restrictive, but otherwise is this achieveable? (I am trying to see beyond relocation companies spin on sunny weather) Any help appreciated! :cool:
