    Welcome to AAC. You will find people are not thrilled with .doc , as they are a good vector for viruses. I have opened the file, it is OK.

    What part of OZ is the blue mountains, if I may ask?

    You are from aussie, so you must be right...

    ... but I always thought that the correct spelling was g'day

    ... I think I need to find a life :) ... and maybe emigrate to Australia

    I would say welcome to the forum, but I feel myself to be a newcomer too.

    EDIT: Hey, what the heck... Welcome to the forum :)

    I lived on the Blue Mountains many years ago. They are part of the Great Dividing Range to the west of Sydney NSW. Very scenic & great for "bush walking".

    Why Blue? If one observes the ranges from a distance they are a characteristic blue hue / haze in appearance.
    My understanding is that this is due to scattering of light by the volatile organic oils given off by the Eucalyptus trees which are endemic.

    And yes I thought it was usually rendered as "G'day". Most people from other places have difficulty in understanding our weird accent so it probably doesn't matter much how it's rendered.
