Hahaha, now now guys, take it easy! :D

Seriously though, I checked out the flights to LAX & it's a $1600AUD ticket & 18hrs each way! :o Do you think I could claim it as a tax deduction seeing as I have a restaurant & I sell smoked foods, research trip maybe? :kewl:

I'm sure it is a research and development trip. As long as you can remember what you did there.

I totally believe you RC, but just like people go to the Eiffel Tower if they visit Paris, if I'm in Texas I may as well go there for my kind of sight seeing, lol. :kewl:

Perhaps we can put together a good old fashioned American petition, surely that would work! :-)
