From the early morning hours on 25 April, 1915 on the craggy shores of the Gallipoli Peninula, to the today, on the border of East and West Timor, the spirit of ANZAC exists, now only to be unleashed again, this time in Afghanistan. Australia will be there. Advance Australia and God Bless America!

Friends in need, are friends indeed. Thank you. I saw a travelogue on the local Public Broadcasting System KCET(?) about Australia, and it is a very beautiful country. They traveled the lenght and width Australia via ancient railroads.. These older towns reminds me a lot of the Calif. during the gold rush days.

Just received the following message from some mates!
New Zealand's armed forces are ready New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark announced this morning from the Beehive (NZ Parliment Building) that New Zealand stands shoulder to shoulder with the USA and has pledged that NZ's full military resources will be made available to support the US in its battle against international terrorism. Here's some of the resources they have to offer....

It seems like as long as I can remember if we were into something that England, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand were always there in some way. Thanks. We all trace our roots to the same place, colonies. I suppose that makes us cousins anyway. Glad for the help.
