Those lovely British people love Australia, despite the Aussies desire to become Crickets all time losers. It could be the time again to import a few foreign players by giving a few well paid ball belters a temporary or Keppler Wessells type citizenship. Retraining depleted and worn mouth wallers such as Andrew M could solve the wicket keeping crises ( providing he could be fitted with a pair of mouth gloves.
However, the British people still love this sun burnt country and like myself have voted it the best place on Earth to live or just visit.
Australia finished on top place ahead of Spain and Italy and America was the poor loser.
Tourism from the U/K was worth $2 Billion a year.
Again However, I have a sneaky feeling most of the money coming in is from Brit pensions being paid to expat Brits living here. At least 30% of my retirement income is sourced from Great Britain.
Most Australians cannot recognise every day vegetables. It could be a nutritionists nightmare. Most adults have know idea what a turnip is let alone a Swede which was recently spelt Sweed at a Cole's Supermarket, Most get in a pickle over naming of vegetables. Quite often at a checkout we are asked by the Check out person "what is or are they'' when bought loose. Prepacks save their brain power.
Most have never heard of an oriental radish (I have had partial success growing them in my garden)
Oriental radishes taste is similar to a turnip, that grow to a length of approx 40 cm and 40 mm circumference. when asked "what are they" by the mature lady at the checkout; I replied " Oriental radishes" she then says's "Big aren't they". I reply " They sure are; I wish I could get mine to grow as big as them. What followed shall not be mentioned here, but it was downright embarrassing.
Have a rewarding week... back soon ... Vest
