Hi Guys and Girls,
It is just after Mid night in Sydney so let me be the first in wishing you all a Happy New Year. The fire works on Sydney Harbour were a work of art, we were so close that we were hit by the debris from the fire works, talk about the most beautiful harbour in the world (Yes I am biased), anyway to all your families may this year bring all your dreams to life.

Happy 1999,

G'day Leon,
Well we usually sit in our yards around a BBQ drink too much beer, most of us have already broken our New Years resolutions. It really is a day we spend with our good friends (Jim wish you were here) and family, and look to the future with great hope.

I got an idea, actually A Concept.
Let's make the Millennium Bug work for us. I'm reminded of the satirical 1964 song titled "Barry's Boys" (back when Barry Goldwater was still Barry Goldwater.)
"Let's go back to the days, when men were men...
"and start the First World War all over again..."

On that occasion, you'll find Boom et moi in our BrisFit low over the Bray-Corbie Road, with the Portales Gonsleenger flying topcover in his Camel. Oh happy day!
You will not rise to the occasion: You will default to your level of training.
