Australiana contest.


Keep a weather eye on that statcounter!!!! might I suggest that you try for some bonus points in case I can't pick a winner

Contest… Contest…Contest

There are prizes to be won… so join in the fun.

OK let the games begin.

Question #1 (for overseas residents) What would I mean if I said;

“It’s a bit soldiers this morning”

Bonus points; Where and what is Humpty Doo ? which famous TV personality has an association with Humpty Doo ? and what is that association ?


Question #2 (for Australian residents) Name the towns generally regarded as Australia’s… Hottest, Coldest, Wettest.

Bonus points; What, according to Jerome Lawrence, is a “neurotic”, a “psychotic” and a “psychiatrist”


Don’t forget there is also a prize for the *100,000th visitor to holtieshouse.

This will happen very soon now so keep a lookout at the statcounter on the sidebar.

*(or the nearest to 100,000 should no one claim to be the 100,000th)

Hi Peter...I haven't a clue about the hottest, wettest, coldest, etc. Guess I'll have to Wiki for the answers.

Actually it'll be quite interesting to see...

Hey Peter... I'm NOT overseas... you are! But anyway... I'll just guess that it means you are cold and have chills? ~ But my chances are better of being the 100,000th visitor than having the right answer? ~ jb///

Peter, I'd love to participate, but that would require research and I'm not up to it now, seeing as how I've contracted a virus.

Christina said...

"a bit soldiers" means it's cold, right? don't know about humpty doo.

Walker said...

I have no idea but Humpty doo I would guess going for a walk as to who said it, I don't know.
Steve Irwin.
We say "humping it" when we go for a long walk.

Ok I got to guess on the first one.
Soldiers get up early in the morning like before dawn so I will say " This is my weenie and this is my gun.
First thing in the morning either one will make you run".

Gramma Ann said...

No idea what any of it means. Will look forward to hearing the answers.

Merle said...

Hi Peter ~~ I agree with Ann above - looking forward to the answers. Thanks for your attempt to help me with the photo, will try again, but don't see how it would work. They are downloaded to Dashboard and I can do that, no worries, but if I go then to Edit Posts, I get a warning "Stay on this page or else.
See How I go nest time. Love, Merle.

Soldiers means it's cold!

Humpty Doo is a rural area near Darwin.
And I hope the famous personality, is the Boxing Croc! *LOL*

Walker said...

Woooo Hoooo I hit 100,000.
I hope that doesn't get added on towards me age

karisma said...

Haha! I dunno! I'll have a guess,

Hottest - Darwin
Wettest - Melbourne
Coldest - Canberra

As they are all cities not towns Im also guessing I am wrong!

Bonus question: A Mother!

karisma said...

Someone must have one the 100,000 visitor, as I came in at 100, 012.

Christina said...

Darn, I just missed it! I was #100,014.

Jamie Dawn said...

Others got here before me, but I think soldiers means that it is chilly or nippy or nipply.
Humpty Doo is a small town between Darwin and Kakadu where a postwar agriculture experiment failed miserably. It's home of The Boxing Croc.

I know I didn't win any prizes, but I hope to see your beautiful country with my own eyes some day.
