For the rest of us whose only discomfort was excessive perspiration, the year started quietly as we tried to keep cool. And then came the news which, on the one hand, brought on some euphoria - but with a dose of diahhorea as well -- Julia's announcement of the Federal Election. The year's just got to get better!
See below what we've been up to here at Chedda to bring a smile to your face!
The good news is that the Federal Election is on!
The bad news is that it's months away!
See our take on Julia's announcement on our news and editorial page!
..and with Federal politics firing up again, Larry Pickering is firing up again too.
