    Hey diuretic! You've been keeping this quiet!!

    What's up? You trying to keep those sheilas all to yourself!! What about us pommy batchelors then.

    That's it. My next leave is in Os. :D

    That's excellent news! Bit academic for me, I'm married. :eusa_angel:

    But as the article says, shortage of sheilas in the rural areas, probably because there's not much work for women there (no-one needs to be offended by that statement, it's about the nature of work in rural Australia not the ability of women to do the work - we have female shearers, back-breaking job it is too).

    Sydney and Melbourne would be where you should be looking Bootneck - lots of lassies there and good nightlife in both cities. Brisbane too I think, haven't been there for a while but I'm told it's kicking along nicely.

    Saw a story a year or two ago about a woman in Australia that put up a billboard in one of the cities looking for a mate. )

    That can be a very misleading statistic because women live longer on average than men do.

    A more informing statistic would be comparing the number of woem 18 - 50 to the number of men of the same age.

    I'm guessing that at those ages, the imbalance in genders isn't all that significant.
