Ah Queensland, beautiful one day......

....perfect the next.

Today is just one of those days here in Brisbane. Gorgeous blue, cloudless sky, the air is still and we're expecting a top of 20C.

After all the 'weather' we've suffered in recent times, a stand out day like today shouldn't go by without being appreciated.

Mmmm it's just lovely!

Hope you're all having a lovely day as well!

Oh stormbird, I have a bad case of "missing Oz" and by reading the posts on Fodor's it normally helps me deal with it since it will probably be a couple more years before I can make it back downunder. Your message brings back lots of good memories of the blue skies of Australia so I hope you are having a GREAT day!!

Lovely day up here in FN Queensland too, stormbird, blue skies, heading towards max of 26C. Not bad for a winter's day.

Everyone in good mood about Maroons win at State of Origin on Wed night, I don't watch footie but even I've worked out that Darren Lockyer must be Queensland's hero of all time.

I hear you Pat - not a fan of footy at all but just the same it was great to hear we took out the Origin yet again.

And AlanJG agree it would be great to see the Reds win - fingers crossed!

I'm still trying to catch up on my sleep from Wednesday night - game didn't finish here until after midnight! Yay the Maroons, too.

I agree - great days in Queensland should be celebrated in view of what happened earlier this year. Today Wellington had clear blue skies, sunshine but it was a wintry sun, and probably around 13 degrees. So looking forward to the warmth of Darwin and the upper NT once next week is finished and school hols are here.

I shall not comment on the game tomorrow, discretion being the better part of valour and all that, but may the best red (and black) team win!!

Good luck dottyp. Don't forget to do your warmups. Would hate to hear you pulled a hammy during the game! I wont get to see it as I'll be out possum spotting.

.. and what spotting it was! Seven possum species.

Great game too by all accounts but highlights packages do not show a lot of the important parts to a game. The cameras also get in too close for someone who knows the game to appreciate everything which is influencing the play.

dattyp, all the best next year. You can be proud of your team, having played all their games away from home and still making the final.
