    In keeping with the quest for truth and concern with detail that prevails in
    this list, I feel I must correct you. Many places in the higher country of
    southern Australia and in Tasmania have experienced white Christmases from
    time to time. For example, on Christmas morning in 1968 in Canberra I awoke
    to a blanket of white.
    
    Today, as I pack the ice and champagne in the esky in preparation for a
    visit to nearby Canberra and family, the temperature is 32C, with a
    brilliant blue sky.
    
    I have taken the liberty of redrafting your salutation to reflect these
    contrasts:
    
    Merry Chrismas to all list members.....from the land down under, a land of
    surprises and contrasts.

    PS By the way, did you ever find a place to resilver your sextant mirrors?
