AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Now that is very interesting,.....a 100 year calendar! Given so many people are bent our of shape that the world is suppose to end in 2012,..... no one can predict the future! Great choice.
