    Smile November 15, 2007 Steve Irwin Day!

    Today, November 15, 2007 is considered Steve Irwin day in Australia and everyone is asked to where Khaki, wherever you are to pay tribute to him. Go here if and have a look...

    Steve Irwin

    Larger than life

    CRIKEY! It is a word made famous by one man, the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. A man who lived in his khakis and spent most of his time darting the bite of a venomous snake, wrestling a nine foot croc or anything else that was, well, simply out of the ordinary. He had an infectious personality that was saturated with enthusiasm and a love for life and wildlife alike.

    Little would he know it, but his “out there” persona and “can do” attitude would have him stirring a crowd whereever he went. His wild antics started from a young age, and having parents that cared for wildlife, it’s no wonder Steve’s drive for life was fuelled from wildlife.

    As the host of the Crocodile Hunter, Steve wowed audiences by the millions. He crouched in scorching heat and sloshed in thick mud for one purpose: because he was committed to the survival of all wildlife and their environment. A cut cheek, grazed knee or sliced hand would not slow him down or prevent him from saving as many animals as possible. Especially the crocs, because as Steve said: “Crocs rule!”
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of

    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in

    sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly

    used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!

    Here is my best Steve Irwin impression, pretending this little gopher snake is dangerous.
