Wow we are having a real blast of a late Summer. So far we have had the warmest nights ever for March, and our 3rd highest daytime temperatures ever for March. The daytime temperatures have been in the mid 30's with next Monday and Tuesday's forecast for 38C. The overnight temperatures are in the mid 20's. Tomorrow and Friday are going to be humid (we are supposed to get some rain), but I'm not holding my breath.
Tonight we all waited with bated breath while the government unveiled a new "brand" for our state. The government apparently wanted something that would be easily recognisable like the Maple Leaf is for Canada, and the Silver Fern for New Zealand.
This is what they came up with.......
Oh dear, how is this going to sell our state? Most people overseas wouldn't even know what a map of Australia looks like, let alone where South Australia is. And they left Tasmania off the map. To me it looks like an advertisement for a building company or a home loan agency. $1.4 million they paid some guy to design this.
They said that the crowds gathered in Elder Park for the unveiling. Hmmmm, so half a dozen people is a crowd?
Does this make a bold statement of our place in Australia and our place in the rest of the world? I think not! Oh well, it will just give more fodder to our interstate counterparts to poke more fun at us South Aussies.
