    Did it occur to you that Cooma may have been deliberately spelt incorrectly? :-)

    It's the off topic thread. No harm and it's been a bit of interesting reading.

    Speaking of place names, @Sfcootz you really need to visit Doo Town. Far more entertaining than Upper Penguin. Or Packenham Upper.

    Yep. Used to live down the road and still have mates there. Gunnerdoo and Doonuffin.

    Upper Penguin sorta kinda does exist, ie there’s a place above Penguin. It’s an old Tassie joke, I’d rather be Upper Cooee than Upper Penguin.

    In defence of Cooma, it has 4 distinct seasons, is handy to the beach and mountains, and Fyshwick for all your shopping needs. Then there is an almost unlimited amount of adv riding from the edge of town. there are worse places. I live nearby in the bush just out of Numeralla, its even better.

    On the 'a' thing, my daughters are Martina and Anita and my nieces are Belinda, Samantha and Jessica. Just happened that way.
