I saw on a news sound-bite that John Kerry says this is the time for you Americans to hold President Bush accountable.(if the bite wasn't taken out of context)
No no no no NO!
This is the time for Bush and Kerry to stand side by side on the same podium and say to Bin Laden "Screw you and the donkey you rode in on."
Apparently the day is supposed to be the one half way between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice. Groundhog Day is the other one, and falls half way between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox.
That makes April 30 Hallowe'en here, August 1 is Groundog's Day, November 1 is May Day (that would be November Day), and Feb 2 Lammas whatever that is.
Well, we don't have Groundhogs in Australia, but we do have a burrowing animal: the wombat. That makes August 1 Wombat's Day.
From now on I will be celebrating Wombat's Day.
