Default Merry Christmas From Oz!!

Well its 8am and 34deg C already here . . .looks like a few beers for lunch a swim in the pool then knock over the rest of those beers while sorting some prawns (Shrimps for most of you!!) and snags out on the BBQ.

Have a great day, and all the best for the coming new year!!

It's 10.22 PM here in the UK and I am ready for bed.
And a Merry Christmas and a Safe New Year to you Russ.

Merry Christmas to all from a sunny (but cold) Tokyo!

I miss knocking off a good kilo of prawns on Christmas day...have found a source for sparkling shiraz in Tokyo though, so it's not all bad!

Merry Xmas all. It is about 90F and 80 per cent humidity here at 11.30am.
But I will be in the air-con at work from lunchtime onwards.

I got a new Harley for Christmas - but it is only about 12 inches long, with a lampshade on top and realistic exhuast note when you switch the light on. My first piece of official Harley Davidson merchandise.

Enjoy your snow and cold for Christmas all you nortenos! (Christmas actually makes way more sense there. Santa Claus getting around in a red snow suit and boots in 100-degree weather just is not the same.)

Russ, have a couple of them XXXXs by the pool for me mate.

75 degrees during the day, but chilly overnight here in L.A. we get to ride year round, but it's hard to dress warm enough for the the cool nights and cool enough for the midday sun. I know, here in LA we cry about any weather other than perfect! that's why we pay the high cost of living, and deal with the crazy government for the opportunity to complain about minute changes in weather!!

Merry X-mas, and everyone have a bitchin new years!

It's about 8:15 here in Southeast Oklahoma, 20 degrees F. With 2-3 inches of snow outside. Two days ago it reached 70 degrees. Santa brought me some bike parts for Christmas!! Whoo Hoo! Now to tear her back down and fix that oil pump. Merry Christmas to all, and best wishes for the New Year.

South west fla here. 80f day, bone chilling 72f at night. gonna put some more lumber on the fire.

but really i have 2 fire places. It does get cold down here whenn you are used to 100/100. 30f difference is meaningful.

And i came from NH. On record for the lowest recorded temp on the planet. My college friends howl at me.
