Very unlike the ANZAC, for example-- which was shown as one of the challanges in the Olympic Marathon race.

?????!!!!????

My initial reaction was exactly the same CapK, but on reading your post, I was shamed by the realisation that our helen's recall of Sydney georgraphy was so much better than mine own. I seem to recall a dedication of an ANZAC bridge in Sydney a little while back, and suspect that is what helen was referring to.

Memories of WWII (The Late, Great Misunderstanding):

The troops from Australia and New Zealand were commonly known as ANJACs ..Does it stand for Australian and New Zealand Army Corp ... or what? The AC bit mystifies me.
wow

Oh yes-- i didn't watch all of the olympics-- but i felt for the mathoners as they ran up the up ramp approach to the the ANZAC bridge--No shade, far into the race, and a big hill to run up! The commentator explaned the meaning of ANZAC-- it was the first time i heard the word--

and my post was a bit hasty-- as the head honco (title is Regional Adminstrator- top post in the office-- one of top 10 in country for this organization!) called me to office for personal tutorial on some software--

Now, you know, Helen dear, that when you throw a comment like that into this here forum you have to expect a little woo-wooing and definitely a lot of nudge-nudge wink-winking

Sparteye stoops (and stoops low) to pick up the gauntlet thrown down by BelM:

"...for personal tutorial on some software--"

I'll bet that by the time you were done "tutoring" him, it was hardware! No more floppies for that administrator!

Sure does - you've just earned yourself an ANZAC biscuit for that one.
