He created night for going prawning,sleeping and BBQ's and God saw that it was good.
On theSecond Day, God created water - for surfing, swimming and BBQ's on the beach and God saw that it was good.
On the Third Day God created the Earth to bring forth plants - to provide malt and yeast for beer and wood for BBQs, and God saw that it was good.
On the Fourth Day God created animals
and crustaceans for chops, sausages, steak and prawns for BBQ's, and God saw that it was good.
On the Fifth day God created a Bloke - to go to the footy, enjoy the beach, drink the beer and eat the meat and prawns at BBQ's, and God saw that it was good.
On the Sixth Day God saw that the Bloke was lonely and needed someone to go to the footy, surf, drink beer, eat and stand around the barbie with. So God created Mates, and God saw that they were good Blokes,and God saw that it was good.
On the Seventh Day God looked around at the twinkling barbie fires, heard the hiss of opening beer cans and the raucous laughter of all the Blokes. He smelled the aroma of grilled chops and sizzling prawns and God Saw that it was good ... ...
Well .. Almost good.
He saw that the Blokes were too tired to clean up and needed a rest.
So God created Sheilas - to clean the house, to bear children, to wash, To cook and to clean the Barbie, and then God saw that it was not just good.
It was better than that, it was Bloody Awesome!
IT WAS AUSTRALIA !!!!!

Pretty scarey if you ask me. It is lucky there are some people who get their adrenaline rush through stopping the fires rather than simply starting them.

Someone went to a lot of trouble to put this video together.
It is well worth the time for a couple minutes of enjoyment. It takes a few seconds or so to load but very entertaining. Turn up volume, sit back and enjoy a review of 50 years of history in less than 3 minutes!
Thanks to Billy Joel and someone from the University of Chicago with too much time on Google!
Just paste the link below into the address line. When the song starts it helps to click on Lyrics in the lower right. Use the full screen option on the upper left if the images are too big or too small.

Busy day. Finished all of my ATCs - labels and all!!! This set is called "FABulous 2008" and is a selection from the various sets that I made.

I think I will try out stitch one, Herringbone, on one of the ATCs which I am making for the Cheer Me Up swap .... two challenges with only one product.... way to go!
The size and theme are personal choices and the quilt will simply need to follow Rosemary's guidelines / rules for the month.
Each month Rosemary will post the next round requirement and everyone has a month to add that to their quilt. A blog has been started so that people can keep track of what others are doing and also talk if they get stuck or need ideas. Should be fun.
I think I had better slow down on the number of things I am signing up for!

Ok January is here and the challenge begins ".............. who do you look up to and admire? Why? What is it you admire about them? ............. Take the idea, develop it into a resolved design ........... apply it to fiber."
OR option 2- colour scheme as below
Or ...... work with both.
Full details of the challenge can be found by checking out http:/sharonb.wordpress.com/ or clicking on the TIFC link on the side.
Hmmm ..... interesting. Who do I look up to?
Do I want someone famous who has set out to save the world or do I want someone who has challenged themselves and even if they haven't met the challenge fully they have developed from it. Second option is more of the kind I'm interested in.
So now I look to people I know.... looks like there will be little opportunity for name dropping here :-(
What kind of challenge? Will think about this further but I think it needs to be such that others can benefit from the challenge rather than just an "I won" situation.
H - Colour, Games, Pointy things
S - Fruit, Itchy, Gold
I - Yellow, Australian, In the air
Z - no set categories
N - Orange, South American, good for you but disliked
U - Street, Cartoon, Expensive
E - White, Plant, Terrifying
V - Car, Office, Kitchen
Y - Green, School, animal
