To watch the England cricket team tamely surrender The Ashes. Still four weeks of sun, beer and hopefully some Aussie Rock 'n' Roll is not to be sniffed at! New Year in Sydney then two nights in LA on the way home. How great is it that you leave Sydney on a Tuesday afternoon, fly for 10-11 hours then arrive in LA early on Tuesday morning?

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year To All.

Pom (or Pommy) is what the Aussies (Australians) call us English people . . . it is the sort of irreverent term you would expect from a nation grown out of criminals in a penal colony

If a batter ( ?) is hit by the pitcher (?) with the ball, does he charge the mound (?) and all hell breaks loose ?

If a batsman is hit by the bowler with the ball, he most certainly does not charge the bowling crease, he merely wags his finger saying "tut tut, that's not cricket old chap"

Heh heh . . . I'm only joking with my old mate Garry . . . I love Oz . . . Sydney is one of my favourite cities in the world.

With regards to the rest of the series . . . I think it will be 5-0 . . . we have of a great side but a couple who just seem to go missing when it's time to knuckle down
