As you all know we live here in Perth Western Australia, moved from the UK five years ago now.

Today we spent the day over on Rottnest Island a small island just off the WA coast, directly opposite where we live as good as.

The boat cast off from Hillary's harbor at 7am this morning and to my amazement we had four Villa shirt clad fans on board, all nothing to do with each other but all sharing the colours and the fan zone.

I approached all of them throughout the day and made my self clear to them as a fellow Villa fan, and everyone of them said more or less the same thing, we are going down this season. I said come on give it a go let's see what the new guy who ever it is can get out of this mix at the Villa.

Two of them have no time for Lerner and one hates Richards with a passion, said he is a moaning ungrateful sod lol.

Small world indeed, we all shook hands and went on our ways, one was  wearing the old Mita copiers  top...die hard or tight either way a true Villan. :villasign 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've known quite a few people emigrate to Oz in recent years, probably as likely to bump into a Brummie out there as you are in Aston.

Good question. Not sure there's anything overly exciting I really want to do that I haven't done already, apart from marry you at the Addies and live happily ever after under the Holte, obviously...

We have seen many Americanism's enter our culture in recent years ( its fair enough we gave them theirs:biggrin: ) in the name of rampant commercialism and while I am not particularly bothered by trick or treat and black Friday can our weathermen please stop the latest, i.e. naming the bloody weather every time it gets a bit windy. In the last couple of weeks we have managed to survive Barney and Clodagh and this weekend every body will completely ignore Desmond, though no doubt some local BBC reporter will do a bit on local news in the coming days about a tree coming down in some village nobody has ever heard of and an exclusive interview with 86 year old Ethel whose hat was blown off..........its hardly Katrina is it ? for good sake's stop it you fools.

I need to correct you me old Mucka:biggrin: I didn't mention Halloween, just the American custom we have adopted over the past decade or two of trick or treat. Halloween itself has a long and varied history within Christianity and like many Christian festivals can probably be traced back to Pagan times.

Now its possible that trick or treat or some form of it dates from way back as I suspect its not a coincidence that in England when I was a kid just a few days later we celebrated November 5th by asking for a Penny for the Guy which was a celebration of the burning of Guy Fawkes and all the Protestant/Catholic rivalry that went with it, though as a child in 70s England we had no idea of the religious implications.
