Rufus2 is an Australian gent who often posts a thread with the title 'Good evening...'. I think his last one was called 'Good evening Fryday'. He keeps us up to date on Covid and the weather in Melbourne. There are other Ozzy Grans too.

Of course you are welcome. It would help if when you tell us are having a Christmas barbie in the glorious midsummer sunshine with all of your neighbours in attendance that you mention your location or you may be deluged by complainers telling you you are breaking β€œthe rules”.

Definitely, welcome!
