Hi Gert

Now I am wondering if the current Russian fad of depicting a Z everywhere is in fact 1/2 of the swastika emblem? Two Z's overlapping gives a swastika. The other theories are 1. the...

To emka: No crocs or jellyfish.

Hi Malgo

Too far south for Crocodiles and Box Jellyfish (Maryborough north), and many Qld Beaches are netted and patrolled, unlike NSW. But after the recent floods there are a lot of bacteria in...

Saddam

Hej Gert

Thanks for posting. Considering Saddam wasn't executed until December 2006, long after the war had finished, I was mistaken that he was summarily executed. So yes, he had a trial,...

Hi Malgo

I'd look at Mongolia. Like Italy and Greece, it is a country most people would like to go back to a 2nd or 3rd time. Turtle Rock, Lake Hovsgol and the South Gobi Desert are fascinating...

To ifege: Bin Chickens

Hi Ian

We have Ibis Hotels in Brisbane too. Yes, we also call these birds 'bin chickens'. For a while people were rather unkindly calling Gladys the 'bin chicken'. I prefer Very.jiggly.one!

To PaulVDV: Earthquake

Hi Paul
