    Congrats Torah.

    I'm sure they're celebrating in Cooma this arvo. I told a bloke at work who is from Cooma and his response was "she's not really a local, her parents only moved there 10 years ago" [​IMG]

    With a name like "Torah", you'd expect her to be Jewish. (Torah is the name of the first 5 books of the Jewish scriptures).

    But she's a member of one of those new religions that evolved out of Christianity, Pentecostal or Mormon or something like that.

    This article in the Cooma-Monaro Express explains how Torah got her name.

    God I hope Eddie has something more constructive to offer with Torah than he did with Dale. That interview was disgusting.

    Congratulations Torah! We knew you could do it! So good to have some strong Aussies out there!
