     226 years ago, the first European settlers in Australia, led by Captain Arthur Phillip, landed in present-day Sydney.

    Thanks to both of you! Actually, I'm 1-1-88. My "~SP~ is..." comment was a moment of uncertainty...depends on what the defination of is,is...or was, then. I've settled on being... settled. And Andy, my picture was taken at my BD party, 1-1-09, when I thought like a 15 year old. The question, however, remains. Who (in all truth) cares? LOL
