Secret longing for Soda Stream, Wagon Wheels, Radio Rentals? Even Egg Nog? Maybe not. But a time when things were, well, less fraught? Shops mostly closed by five pm. Bit more time to spend with family and friends. Perhaps get involved with your local Lions Club. Then Australia, Queensland certainly, is the place for you.

But hurry. Times are a changing. Utilities being sold off. Privatised. De-regulation gathering apace. Dairy industry couple of years ago. Growing "’ealth and safety" culture. Mobile dog grooming. Dubious hallmarks of a sophisticated society.
