Happy Birthday Australia

Today is my country's birthday and the birthday of the love of my life, Tim is 57 today. The country is 230 years old, well it is a lot older then that but you know what I mean.

I don't think I had ever heard of Australia day until a couple years ago when we went to a basketball game and they were celebrating it at the game because of Matthew Dellavedova being on the team. Sadly, he has moved on to another team now. I'm just not that great at history to know any of it, otherwise.
