We would see the Australian lifestyle in photos sent by her. Never imagined I would come to live here one day, 20 years after my mom died. I love it here!!"
Email from Julie I:
"Just a thank you for the concise explanation between Aussie meat pies and American pot pies! I've read every explanation everywhere of each of them separately but you were the first to clearly lay out the DIFFS for my yank eyes! Thanks! "

"Love your site. I was stationed in Alice Springs for 3 years with the US Air Force and miss it. I've been back in the states for 15 years and still get 'home sick for the Alice'."

A really short email from Dominique T in France:
It's not a question. It's simply to say thank you for the beautiful site you give us. Thanks dear Aussies."
And just one more: "G'day, Sue here. I'm often on your website and enjoy very much my stay here and the improvements you make from time to time :-) As am Aussie and living in Adelaide. I would wish your survey would asked also 'are you living here' as I don't like to be seen as visitor :( Keep up your good work and all the best ... and when I can spare some cent of my pension I'll send you a small amount :-) Cheers mates."
And a Few Words From Me
What can I say. Your emails and even paper greeting cards you send always lift my spirits. This website has been a labour of love for my husband Max and I for 15 years. Much of what you see here was inspired by the questions you send me. Australia is a wonderful country and Max and I are proud to share with you what we learn through our research. I do hope you enjoy our website.
