The Best Australian Movie - EVER!

To all who reads this, do yourselves a favour when this beautiful movie comes to your part of the world: see it!  What movie am I talking about?  The amazing Red Dog.  This story is based on a real dog who lived, and roamed through the Pilbara region (outback, north-western Australia) in the 1970's.  This wonderful film isn't your usual ''Lassie saves the world" type of dog story, it's much more than that.  As a character from the movie says, "It's not what Red Dog does, it's who he is."  You will laugh, cry, and thoroughly love this movie to bits!  I can't recommend this film enough, and I can't wait to go see it again. :)

Halloween's just around the corner, so I'll be back in a couple of days with some goodies for All Hallow's Eve. :)  Speaking of holidays, I couldn't believe it today when I went grocery shopping....the Christmas stuff is all out!  Last year it appeared early in November, this year, yes folks - forget about Christmas in July (or even where it's supposed to be, December!) it's now Christmas in October!

Congratulations to Geelong, AFL Premiers for 2011!!

Not usually a big footy fan, but like most (ahem) NON-Collingwood supporters, I was absolutely delighted to see Geelong (the Cats)  knock over those black and white Magpie  feathers at the MCG last Saturday!






I thought this fan (below) looked amazing....he was at the game and boy, what a get-up! lol.  Oh, and do you think he's a happy boy?!!



Now, one REALLY big controversy was Meatloaf's pre-match entertainment gig before 100,000 people.  I saw it on the TV and have one word for it: sad.  The man is well past his use-by date and sounded absolutely woeful.  That's a shame, because those great big songs of his, like Bat out of Hell et. al, (almost a rock opera in themselves) deserve much better treatment.   I'm still trying to decide which was more offensive: the assault on my ears by his caterwauling or the site of his big yellow blob of chewing gum clearly showing!  Yuck...  Anyway, you can read more about this here:  (and you should see the comments link too....it's entertaining to say the least!  If you're feeling a bit down and can do with a laugh, this will give it to you guaranteed! :)
