I spent a month in Australia, partially as a business trip for my employer, but mostly as a vacation to one of the most stunning places on the planet. The scenery, the wildlife, and the culture of the land “down under” are all very unique. Here’s a short video synopsis of my trip (set to a wonderful tune I heard on the radio down there by The Avalanches), and of course pictures are available in my album.
There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.
