Greetings Froggy, and welcome.

There's coffee in the pot, cake in the fridge, and cheap Peruvian whisky on the top shelf behind the large pile of old Byte magazines.

FrogQueen? Would you happen to be a Quebecer, by chance? Or do you have some fun backstory to tell about it? Otherwise, I'll have to challenge you to a rabbit fight! [crazy]

(We Quebecers like to turn insults sent our ways into a source of pride - that's how we chose our national day!)

Oh, and you're not the only one who leave the coffee pot untouched - I prefer my caffeine in a nice cup of green tea. Oh, and dark chocolate. (70% Cacao is great, 85% is better, 99% is bitter! [Big Grin] )

Welcome!

No, I'm not. My father's parents were French. Our last name is VERY French and my Grandfather went by and Father goes by the name Frenchy. So when my dad joined the Army, people started teasing him about being a Frog and gave him frog stuff constantly. I grew up LOVING frogs, and when my son was born, my father called him the Frog Prince therefore making me the FrogQueen!!! (I tried to make that short!)

I did almost marry a man from Quebec...does that count for anything?? LOL

Hmmm, reading that, it makes you almost as good as a Quebecer. Welcome again, cousin! [Wink] (Does you family still speak French?)

Hey, you're the one who lives in the other Melbourne!

Here in the real Melbourne, it's cold and wintery, (3.4C/38F at 7:30 am) but sadly not rainy (we're in our 12th year of drought).

I've been to your Melbourne, it seemed a nice enough town, but it was raining when I was there, so I just passed through and went to the space centre. (Have I mentioned I'm a geek?)

You can have some of my rain. My yard is completely flooded and it's supposed to pour down tomorrow and Saturday. [ohwell]

Thanks, I'll take as much as you can spare, just package it up neatly, I'll PM you the mailing address.

I can spare an unlimited amount and I have plenty of time to mail packages. I have to stay home tomorrow because the road to my 4-year-old's day care is flooded so they won't be open.

Send those packages to...

Melbourne Water
PO Box 4342
Melbourne VIC 3001
Australia

Note: aussie post won't deliver packages over 20kg, so 5 gallon containers should do nicely.
It's a shame you can't email water, maybe when we get Web 3.0 running we can set up a streaming link...
