    I love how all the world is supporting the bushfires, even the Queen is sending money from her private fund. I can imagine the people affected feel alot of support behind them.

    Wow. Just wow.

    On one hand, the Queenslanders probably need it too. On the other, that makes the gesture even more amazing. Good on them.

    Off to donate...

    Hey guys, glad to hear we've mostly all checked in and things are good.

    Lost a couple of old aquaintances and the family holiday spot in Marysville, which is very sad.

    That is awesome. I am American but I think it is great when the people get together and help one another and are not MADE to do it by government. They do it because they care. That is when it means the most. Kudos, Australia. As I tell tahiriveilax all the time, I want to move there so badly!!! My country is so messed up!!! God bless all you Aussies!!! You have it right!

    Lots of 'irons in the fire' as it were, probably a bad comparison, but all I could come up with. Things are afoot and plans are being made for more $$$ making ideas for those who need it most.

    To our Victorian brothers & sisters in the SW universe, I am proud to announce that we have raised a combined total today from our efforts at both sites -

    approx - $3800 to be deposited into the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal.

    Not very much in the grand scheme of things but we are happy to try to do our part.

    grand TOTAL of $3,840.85

    I am extremely proud of the people from SAFF/Rebel Legion & 501st TAG for their time & effort.

    Not a bad day's work there I reckon.

    Sure we'll adopt you!! It's an Aussie tradition to adopt people from other countries & claim them for ourselves.

    Wow! It's awesome that you guys could raise that much. =D=

    You know, if you're serious, I know an amateur director who needs a SFX guy for his SW fanfilm... :D (And I use amateur in the 'not his real job' sense, not the 'crappy' sense; the trailer they put together for the fanfilm looks amazing.)

    Wow, good for you.

    I was standing at my local Shopping Centre (which is up the road from me) and I could see fires coming from 20 minutes away, and they are getting quite close to where I am. I'm sure I'll be fine though.
