That's a great experience, Wolfman. Unmaterialistic, and very spiritual. You're definitely someone who believes in living for a living!

Oh Wolfie---that WAS the scenery. There's just no mountains. And admit it, you'd never seen anything like it, had you?

Scary, spirited outback moments are the stuff of dinner party conversations here in Oz. My own personal favourite true story took place in a small town (hot and dusty, actually very hot and very dusty). Exhausted by the day's driving in the heat we crawled into the pub, ordered a beer and sat, politely, next to a typical outback character. We must have pleased him because he gave us a greeting and a huge grin, revealing a mouth full of teeth, everyone of which was made from a glittering opal. We must have looked quite impressed as he then removed them from his jaws so that we could admire them more closely!!

We did,smiling, as I am sure you would have too!!

OK -a bit of Science-UMMM- opals are the only organic gem- jewel- whatever (I think)? I know they contain water- at least I think they do.

re dogma.. dict def---"body of doctrines formally and authoratively stated by a church,"

thus you may be dogmatic but you can only quote dogma agreed to by other people, who are in authority and are the rule makers.

Thank you Ellis. So the rules say I can spout all the dogmatic tripe I like, and so long as I don't make an institution of it, it's not dogma! grin

Ellis. I actually took a trip to Broken Hill and hitch-hiked back to Bathust just so I could experience that open space. we had a gig in Bathurst two weekends in a row. To cut the story short suffice to say I made the gig just in time to hear the rest of the band finish the last set.

Fair enough, Ellis, you got me this time. I've seen some pretty peculiar things in my life, but I've NOT seen a bloke with Opals for teeth!!
