Winter is what is happening down there.

Do you know what there is between Tasmania and the Antarctic? Roy Orbison, that's what.

They are really nice people, though, despite the two heads.

Best of luck.

- are they known as Tasmaniacs? If Hobart on a Saturday night is anything to go by, they should be. It's like redneck youngsters use the city centre as a racetrack, USA 1950's style!

Hrothgar, why do I not get the Orbison reference?

cheers, Terry

Ok Ok I know it's Cold and I know it's winter, but there must be some Taswegians out there doing music. Martin are you there?

I think Martin Pearson went to Melbourne ...

But Mike Manhire and Mick Flannagan are still down there ...

Ted, why not contact Beth at "Celtic Southern Cross" on their website (where they sell instruments and tutors and CDs etc) - I'm sure they could help ...

Hrothgar, this could be a bit embarrassing, but, not only do I have distant EnZed rellies, I also have quite close Taswegian rellies ... (still, we Sandgropers always were a little different - that's why we've tried to secede from the rest of Oz 3 times in the country's short white history!!!)

Cheers! R-J

G'day Ted & Rich Joy,

Beth is probably the handiest (certainly the easiest) contact for this ... Mike,Mick & Beth are all up in the north ... but Beth should know what's going on for the whole isle. (Actually, if you were crossing the Bass Strait by the Spirit of Tasmania ferry, you might bump into Mick stewarding on the boat ... but I presume that you are flying ... ?)

I had some good sessions down the Huon Valley (below Hobart) in ebruary ... maybe that's where the indigent folkies head , for the cheaper living (a bit like the Blue Mts, vis a vis Sydney).

Regards,

Bob Bolton

BTW: Terry K - They are Taswegians if they were born there ... they are only Tasmaniacs if, like me in the '60s, they went of their own free will!

Tasmania?........... In JULY!!!!!!!

What the name of the blue blind blistering blazes is anybody in their right mind doing, going to TASMANIA in WINTER?

FROM CAIRNS???????

Listen Ted, sit down fer a coupla minutes and cool yer fevered brow.... Then go see your GP, or better yet, your shrink. It might not be too late. Medication's a wonderful thing these days. But if you must travel south, fer gawd's sake, geroff the plane at Brissie and spend a couple of weeks in a climate that won't be too..... well, not to put too fine a point on it... British. We've got music round here, and it'll be warmer than having yer socks freeze to yer feet.

Repent this mad scheme before it is too late!

OxMacca.

I have been hopelessly indoctrinated by Monty Python. Whenever I get a chance to get away from the tropical paradise that is Cairns, into my bewilderd brain swirls the imperitave command "NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT" (my last break (10 years ago I went to England and Canada for XMAS. I expect Tas to be quite mild) BTW why does anyone live in Bris - It's neither chalk nor cheese.Even if the music may be great ;-)> Come on up and see us sometime.

Well, I dunno mate. I reckon yer've been out in the sun a bit too long. Stone me, no wonder yer want to go to Tassie.... the heat must've addled yer grey matter if yer went ter Canadia, where all them bleedin' Canadians come from, and Pomland an' all... fer Chrissie, fer cryin' out loud... No wonder yer carn't bleedin' well spell.

An' as fer why anyone would want ter live here in Brissie, the capital of Godzone, the jewel of the south-east, the centre of the known universe an' the very essence of all that is free an' decent, and demo-bleedin'-cratic, well mate...... All I can say is yer've never lived till yer've had a few days in the sun-kissed paradise we've got down here. Geez, cobber, ye'd have ter be flat out like a lizard drinkin' ter find a better spot fer a holiday, or ter live. Chalk or cheese, eh? Well, lemme tell yer we've got the best bleedin' cheese this side o the Black Stump down here, and as fer chalk, well, our bleedin' chalk the best in the bleedin' world, innit.

Do you think the tourist bureau of investigation will be satisfied with that, Ted? Have a nice time in Tassie.... I won't tell my better half, she'd have me on a plane there like a shot. Brrrrrrrrrrrr.....

Tassie - a top spot anytime of the year.
Great beer and the world's best cider and vegetables that still taste like vegetables. And wonderful oily baked mutton birds and honey to kill for and curried sea scallops that you'd sell the wife for and - and - and don't go there if you are watching your waistline.

G'day John Gray,

Ah ... you've just explained what I couldn't explain earlier this morning. I was looking over my medical record with my GP and she noted that my blood sugar levels, declining nicely since I was diagnosed with mild Type 2 diabetes early last year - and buckled down to dietary and exercise improvements, were back up over 8.0 when last tested ... March 2002.

Now, I had spent the previous month roaming around Tasmania, visiting in-laws and enjoying the local provender ... Oh well, back to The GI Book (Diabetes Australia's bible) and the 6 km walk home every night. (And plan next year's holidays for somewhere less tasty!)

Regards,

Bob Bolton

G'day George Seto,

Indeed, that question came up in the (c. 1966) discussion from which I got the other terms. The young lady, who had come out with her family at age 14 said: What about us English that did not come out willingly?" and I replied: "Convicts!"

OK, I've checked with my Tazzy relative, whose best advice is to go to a tourist site and ask them. Great help, thanks a lot, I thought!

See pejomo's site at Molonator Guitars, and drop him an e-mail Molonator web Site
I'm sure he'll give you all the info about Tazzy.
I'll be in Cairns myself, in about 4weeks, getting away from the UK winter for a short time.
I've been told the barrier reef is worth a visit ?
