Planet Cake offers these incredible courses that teach you how to make a madhatter, Planet Cake style, who make the most awesome ones on earth. Hopefully, if all goes well, I am taking the trip there in June to attend! Once in a lifetime opportunity! icon_smile.gif

Hell yeah! Just a good ol' Aussie BBQ, drinks with mates, sweltering in the heat listening to Triple J Hottest 100 and finishing it all off with a swim! I find myself getting more patriotic the older I get!

So how do Aussie's celebrate Australia Day?

I assume you don't all drink fosters and barbecue?

Most of us have a BBQ with friends. My Mum went to the supermarket at 7:00 last night and there wasn't a breadroll in sight!

Not many Aussies drink Fosters. The two most popular beers are XXXX and VB but I don't like beer. Give me Champers, Wine or a Cruiser! I have a lot of friends who love Bundy Rum too.

Also, a huge number of people find their way either to the beach or a park .... preferably the beach!

Or if you have a pool, you're in and out of that all day! If you don't, there are a LOT of people who blow up a kiddie pool and have some drinks in there!!!

If you want to see some live photos of Aussie parties today, go to
http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hottest100/09/default.htm . Every year Triple J pust on the hottest 100 which are the hottest 100 songs as voted by listeners. Triple J is a bit offbeat and probably appeals mostly to 20 - 35 year olds

Ridiculous temperatures here today. We took the baby out the back and hosed her! Her first taste of patriotism.

I'm not a beer drinker, either. I loves me some wine, though! Y'all are producing some excellent vino that we are fortunate to be getting here in the States.

Bit late i know - but sat at a very suitable table at a very suitable restuarant along the Swan River in Perth and watched the Sky Show - whilst sipping something very suitable - icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Have been *caking* for 10 days non stop - so i deserved to sit, sip and see the skyshow. icon_wink.gif
