Happy Australia Day!

Australian markets are closed because Australia Day was this weekend (if the January 26th holiday occurs on the weekend, everyone gets the following Monday off).

A few points ...

Australia was only settled because of the loss of colonies in North America.

  • It's the day that Governor Bligh (of "Mutiny on the Bounty" fame) was arrested by British officers in what became known as the "Rum Rebellion."
  • Today, it's a day of festivals, fireworks and boat races.
Happy Australia day! Kiss a sheila for me, mate!
