This Is Why Australia Is The Lucky Country

As I have sat glued to the TV watching the devastating Queensland floods one thing kept playing in my head, “we sure are a lucky country”. OK, people may have lost their lives, houses and livelihood but the mateship displayed during these  people’s hour of need is nothing short of remarkable. Randoms, rescue workers, politicians and police all working in unison with just one goal in mind, save lives. No anger, just resilience and a decent dose of humor. Bravo Aussies, bravo.  I had to smile when one drenched woman said it wasn’t the rapidly rising water that scared her,  but when she opened the door and was confronted with friggin snakes! I hope people from overseas who want to live here take note of this. This is the very reason why we are proud of our culture and way of life and it should be protected, not dismantled. This is Australia at it’s very best, the lucky country.

Psst As I am a proud supporter of the RSPCA I urge people to donate whatever they can to the  Queensland Flood Appeal.

  4. I have been watching it on TV. I am so glad we don’t live there now as our old suburb near Ipswich is underwater. We have friends up there & as far as we know the ones we have contacted are all ok. My heart goes out to all those poor people.

    Tame Impala, why wasn’t I told?

    I have a friend packing in Brisbane as it’s almost upon her and her new $40.000.00 VW Golf. EEEEK!! She was only here last week , why didn’t she stay longer?? She drove from Brisbane to Melbourne and back to give the car a LONG run. With our weather we just don’t know any more.

  6. Some amazing video of a guy who pulled his truck out of a space right as his neighbors car was engulfed. Hope things dry out soon.
