Oh, that's great Exodus, if you can include Tassie and Canberra (only 2 hours south of Sydney) in your tour too.

Am I dead? Am I alive? I'm both!

CRIPES Justin...you're right[:0].....I think it's safe to say that Richard knows what I meant...but I'm so naive I didn't realise what I said.(hee hee)

Dear Drug Squad....I meant Geological Rocks not the naughty stuff.

Thanks

Neil

Neil i wasnt thinking of any deals, lol, i cant even afford to buy cd's to play on my stereo lol!... when it comes to rocks and stuff i love telling people about them, especially kids. Am going to be a teacher by the way!

I have plenty of fossils and some nice volcanic bits and pieces. If your son likes those kinds of things i'll see if i can sort him out a few cool things!

I recommend a cafe, restaurent rich area called Crows Nest. It is near the CBD in the north shore and is near the TV stations. I have no idea where the actors go.
