Note that Australian conventions for mobile phone
emergency numbers, and the number of blasts that
signify "help!" are different than American:

I liked the tin can whistle.

Education is the best provision for old age.

I have no interest in or affiliation to any of the products or services I may mention. Should I ever, I will clearly state so.
