Australian Story

Australian History


Yesterday marked 56 years since we made the switch from needing two shillings to make a florin and twenty shillings to make a pound and needing to pay a three pence (pronounced threepence) and a two pence (tuppence) halfpenny, with dollars and cents.

How much easier it is to have to pay $6.55 than 6pound, 5s 5d.

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
