           An American  decided to write a book about famous churches
around the world, so he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando,
thinking he would start by working his way across the USA from south to

On his first day, he was inside a church taking photos when he noticed a
golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read "$10,000 a call".

The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by, what the
telephone was used for.

The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000
you could talk to God.

The American thanked the priest and went along his way.

Well, the next stop was Atlanta.

There at a very large cathedral he saw the same golden telephone with the
same sign under it.

He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and he
asked a nearby nun what its purpose was.

She told him it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could
talk to God.

"Okay, thank you" said the American.

He then travelled to Indianapolis, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston, New

In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same $10,000 per
call sign under it.

The American, upon leaving Vermont, decided to travel to Australia to see if
Australians had the same golden telephone.

But this time the sign under it read "40 cents a call".

The American was surprised, so he asked a priest about the sign.

"Father, I've travelled all over America and I've seen the same golden
telephone in many churches, but in the US the price was $10,000 a call".

The priest smiled and answered, "You're in Australia now, son. It's a local

So there you are, confirmation. This is God's country. We should remember

We had a great Australia Day.

mick left us a post about it in the coffee house.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
