      Cool Where will you be living when you are 80?

      I have been chatting to a couple of friends recently and they all plan on going back to the UK when they retire, I really cannot understand why. A lot of them say they are going back for security, family and old friends etc.
      For me I am happy where I am this is my home.

      I would love to say that I will be in Australia when I am 80. Unfortunately I have a sinking feeling that I am doomed to remain in the stinking cesspit...errr I mean the United (?) Kingdom.

      Oh Tony, one day hopefully, you will be here. How about a retirement visa? Or even a business visa, mind you they cost a fortune.

      Nah Tim, I have quite a few freinds who live in Melton Nr ChCh and Nelson and both say that it doesn't get as cold as the UK in their opinion.
      I thought you owned a deep fat fryer there in Perth ? :-)
