Happy Australia Day

I love a sunburnt country,

  A land of sweeping plains,

  Of ragged mountain ranges,

  Of drought and flooding rains,

  I love her far horizons

  I love her jewel sea,

  Her beauty and her terror -

  The wide brown land for me.

I am feeling very patriotic this year and I'm flying the flag proudly at our home.  A number of people have commented and it hasn't all been positive.  I figure if I flew the US flag on the 4th of July while we lived in the US, I can fly the Australian flag on Australia Day! 

Isn't home always the best country in the world.
