For a better grasp on the impact of Rev Sharpton, < a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/smofbabe/14067.html?nc=2&style=mine">go here</a>.

Cheers for all that -- very enlightening. I can see I'll have to qualify my Al Sharpton remark in a minute. Do I like him? I don't know the guy. Do I respect his opinions -- yeah, I think I do.

Meanwhile, I'm having second thoughts about Adelaide. You're entirely to blame for this: 15C and sitting around a stove? Maybe Sydney would be the better choice, all things considered...;-)

15C and sitting around a stove?

A wood-fired combustion heater. Remarkably good at heating even very large rooms. And we only fire it up when it's 10C or below in the evenings.

Adelaide's at its best in spring and autumn, unless you like hot weather (I do). Much of Sydney is very, very beautiful -- the Harbour's magnificent and there are many suburban beaches -- but it's expensive to live in any of the pretty bits. I love visiting Sydney but we viewed it at one of the less desirable cities to move to when I was job-hunting last year.

Personally, I don't mind hot weather provided it's a dry heat. I've never had any problem being out and about grocery shopping in the south of Egypt while the temperatures soared to 54C in the shade. I do have a problem with hot and humid, though -- so Cairns is definitely out.

Sydney I like because of all the amenities -- but it's also quite close to my relatives who live in the Blue Mountains, and I'm not sure I want them anywhere near my holiday retreat...which means Adelaide's still holds the trump card!

In which case I can also recommend Perth, which is another very liveable city. Melbourne also has much to recommend it, but not the weather.
