Well, it's November 3rd down here in Oz. That means tomorrow is Tuesday, Nov 4th.
There are several very important things happening that day. The most important is that it's wifey-poo's birthday. It's also the day before Guy Fawkes night so you better get your bonfires ready.
Aaaaannnnnndddd there's a big horsey race over in Melbourne. It's pronounced Melbin, BTW. Us South Aussies don't get the day off for their horse race, but we do get Adelaide Cup Day off. Obviously, the Victorians and New South Welshmen take the day off for The Melbourne Cup.
There are, however, many pubs, clubs, hotels, casinos, and of course the local race tracks around Adelaide that have Melbourne Cup parties. In fact, here's an add for one of them (I kid you not!):
And what magazine is this from? It's from the Marion City Limits Spring 08 issue. Distributed free to all households in the city of Marion (part of the Adelaide Metropolitan area).
Morphettville race track has been running this type of ad for as long as I've been down here for all the major races. Guess what? NO ONE COMPLAINS! Possibly cus there aren't a bunch of stuck up prudes down in Oz? Either that or we're all just a bunch of perverts. You decide.
(drum roll please)
Please welcome this Circus' newest attraction:

The Amazing Acrobatic Rainbow Brothers!
Let's give 'em a big and folks! Especially since they don't have any...
I almost forgot... there's some kinda election going on in some country waaaaay up north. EVERYONE VOTE!!! Let's make ole SP realize that you better be careful of who you step on as you climb the ladder, cus you'll be meeting them on your way back down!
Wouldn't it be great if someone hands her a bag of skittles and asks her to "Taste the rainbow?" Nah, she wouldn't get it.
I almost forgot to let y'all know about the weather here today. 79 in the shade, 119 in the sun, and 78 water temp in the pool. Yes, that is in Fartenheight for those of you who are mathematically disinclined.
