Interesting story about our Ozzie colleagues and their lifestyle.

Featuring Wangaratta, a town often mentioned by our star Pandora

enjoy

Re: Wanga' in the BBC News

I always considered Wangaratta to be a 'jokey' sort of place - a bit like Edna Everage's Mooney Ponds or (for those that can remember) Bill Kerr's Wagga Wagga!

Re: Wanga' in the BBC News

When they reported Wangaratta to be a Victorian town it made sense why Mr Greenhill is so old...

Re: Wanga' in the BBC News

I did hear brief mention that some missing guy had been found on a road by the airport but, as I scarcely watch the news, was not aware of the story.

Thanks for putting it up, Derek!

Re: Wanga' in the BBC News

Thanks Andrew, it's good to have feedback like that. A lady in Western Australia (3,000km away) built the site for me for a reasonable fee considering the quality and what other website creators charge. Hopefully it will make me some money one day! I've almost finished another painting, should have it up by Wednesday.

Cheers,
