Looks like a great learning center.

Mine is still in its box since the day it arrived--if anyone ever succeeds in classifying procrastination as a 'disability', I would surely meet all the criteria.

By the way "bros" is not in the American vernacular, and a Google didn't turn up a likely definition in the context that I presume you used it. So I take it that it's a contraction of some sort, but for what?

I meant it in the brother sense, not the UNIX sense.

Thank you; I conclude from your comment that in Australia there is some "unifying"/solidarity/commonwealth "feeling"/sentiment among its inhabitants that you feel exists.

I wouldn't say that about the USA in a million years. But I would admit that a large land mass, and hundreds of millions of residents with a constant flow of immigrants has a good deal to do with that (and these comments are just for starters).

Despite the fact my grandfather died there and my daughter has visited recently, I have no personal experience of Australia but the producers of the videos are Australians and are being buddies by making their expertise available to all free. Leigh on here is an Australian and seems to have the persona of helping family and neighbours out. He'll elucidate no doubt.

It ain't bros. It's BRUZ.. Of course that depends up from which state you originate, Then, it could be CUZ.

No, I have yet to watch the video. Too much else to do than watching gammon vids on a Cuz selling pies to da Bruz.

We would say bros here though - and younger Americans seem to use the term.
