Australia Day 'gratitude'

Good things:
the land
the people
the opportunities
the joy at simple pleasures eg.
floating thong 'record' at Cottesloe beach

Always liked the 'Third' verse...

Beneath our radiant southern Cross,
We'll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To advance Australia fair.

This original version was composed by Peter Dodds McCormick

Enjoy the fireworks in Perth y'all :D
