You must be talking about the other me, John. As I recall, he reared his ugly head a few times at the 75th!! Image

I sure hope my numbers come up today on that lotto drawing. Cash out on 106M would be, what, about 40+ mill after taxes. Then I could visit and show you guys how to party! (DOH!) Of course that would be after the buying spree.

No taxes on lottery winnings here, John. You win $160 million, you get the full bucket! Image

Not that we get them that high here, though...... population of 20 million limits it a bit.

Tell you what! If I win even a small part of a Superdraw I'll shout you and your lady a trip to Oz. Rollers at the airport, vintage Bollinger all round and rose water in your bath..... nothing but the best!! Image

'What's a bath?' I hear you ask?

I'd love you to show us how to party..... I reckon we've worked that one out!!! Image

"No taxes on lottery winnings here"

We have a VERY greedy government over here. Image

Ain't that the truth, Jeff! I've been doing the taxes and even my children (still students) get raped.

Aitch - sounds like a deal. Now to win! :D I've got the numbers from today's draw, now to get home and check. Wouldn't that be a grand Valentine's present!! ;)

I know the feeling, John. I'm in a syndicate at work and over ten years I've put in over $2500 and won back about $1000. Image

Time sure does fly by.

One year ago today Lisa and I landed in Melbourne.

While there, we met a bunch of strangers who took us into their homes and treated us like they know us their whole lives.

Not many days pass that we don’t think about our time with you all.

Cheers to my Aussie friends.
