        You’re welcome, this is a fun project! By the way, I spent a year living in QLD – and loved it there! (I miss it terribly at times as well.)

        Yes it is a fun project! and I’m so glad that other people are enjoying it as well. I’m glad you loved it here in QLD! Tonight is State of Origin, if you were here for a year I’m sure you probably heard all the hype! QLD vs NSW in rugby league, QLD has won 7 consecutive series. Go Queenslander!

        I definitely remember State of Origin! Though I don’t really understand rugby, I couldn’t help but get caught up in all the excitement. I lived in Townsville, and I remember The Cowboys as well.

        Wow it is a small world. Got to love the Cowboys! They are 12th on the ladder. I will be sure to keep you posted on who wins the State of Origin tonight Alex!
