Australian Gnome Convention

Status: Gnome News
image On January 26th, the second Australian Gnome Convention will be held in Glenbrook Park. Gnomes and their carers are invited. The gnomes can socialize in the Gnome Dome, while the humans converse elsewhere. Why Australia? The site explains: "Whilst not native to Australia, Gnomes are reportedly migrating from Europe and Britain to make a new start in 'new lands' where the impact of pollution is less." So if you've lost a gnome recently, maybe it's headed for Australia.

Also, for those who don't know, 26th Jan is Australia Day and is a public holiday Down Under. Sounds to me like the Gnome Convention is a great excuse for a party!

We are very good at finding excuses for a party. In fact, that sounds like a reason to celebrate.

This story came out the same day as a story that a group of countries led by the U.S. are going to have an "anti-Kyoto" convention in Australia. The participants are some of the world's biggest polluters, like China, the U.S., and Russia. Apparently they're going to develop plans to cure global warming by burning more coal, or something like that.
So-- is that why the gnomes are in town?

Nah. My Legion of the Damned is just coming back after their overseas deployment.

That and there was a rumor going around of a free BBQ and VB.
