    I have got friends/relatives in both and have never been to either, so if I won the Lotto be both I guess!

    When I was living in the UK I went to Florida a few times in the 90s on holiday and also again to play in the Paintball World Cup, so I have great memories of the place and would love to take my kids there to Disney when they're older.
    I've always thought of it as a great place to live but I wouldn't want to live there.

    I live in Australia now and love it, such a great place to live.

    I've been to the USA 3 times & enjoyed myself but I'm not sure I want to live there, I've not been to Australia yet but it sounds interesting enough to be worth a visit.

    I'd love to know if Skippy is still alive lol

    He would say to the kid "Click click click click"

    The kid would say "What Skippy? There's a kid down the well?"

    Translation of Skippy's language?

    "Oi give me some leaves I'm hungry" lol

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    As a kid I used to fantasize about both Skippy, and Flipper, which was set in Florida. I've been to San Francisco, lived in Seattle and Alaska, but I'd like to see New York City most I guess because of the history.

    Sonny Hammond (IIRC) his name, played the kid

    When Sonny moved onto other things, Skippy & Joey were shelved, until only recently to see the light of day
