Dealing with the weather........

Thought my international readers might like to hear something that was NOT on the iPod our Prime Minister gave to the US President.... an iPod which was supposed to have on it a representative collection of Australian music.  There has been much amusement and not a little confusion over the selection of the tracks - why was one thing there and another not?  Why was a Crowded House track included when they come from NZ?  Why were all the tracks politically correct?

You can't please everyone all the time.

The link here is to a song re-worked since our monumental weather events across Australia this summer.  It can be downloaded from the ABC Shop online and donations made to the Premier's Flood Appeal for Queensland, despite the fact that many more parts of the country were effected.  At least its a start, and to be fair to Macca, the weather events just keep on coming............  Now Macca is certainly not everyone's taste, but he makes me smile (and grit my teeth, and yell at the radio, and laugh out loud, generally every show).  Tune in on Sunday morning (Australian time) from 5.30 til 10 am every week.  His program is called Australia All Over.

  1. We're needing gum boots around here, too. Floods, earthquakes, tsunamis--Nature is really ramping things up. Do you think we'll ever take the hint?


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I'd like to read your thoughts.....
