You never have been one for holding back, Grant! It's high time this royalty stuff gets debunked! Get a real job, mate! :-)

Bill, as a staunch republican I'm hoping the Scots stand tall and free and tell the Poms they no longer need them (I was tempted use stronger language but realised this is a family blog). It might show my timid countrymen who roll over like puppies to have their tummies tickled every time some "royal" deigns to visit, that their allegiance is tied to a shrinking concern. The French revolutionaries had the right idea when it came to royalty! I'm hoping Nessie's vote won't be necessary.
 
bill 2014-09-15 22:46:30
So Grant, I'd love to hear your thoughts about the upcoming Scottish seccesion vote. They say that Nessie will cast the deciding vote if it comes to a draw! Hilarious!
 
 
dave 2014-09-15 22:32:31
Wow!!!

Here's the proof of a summer's day in Alberta. The date on the pic is in day/month/year format.

Zen, in reference to the Miss America pageant, I was born drooling; that's my normal modus operandi. I shift into panting mode for the Miss America pageant...
 
grant228 2014-09-13 00:29:47
Bill, I have to agree with Dave. Oceania is the region. Oceanic is the adjective. Knowing where you live, I think you've got quite a drive to reach the ocean!
 
bill 2014-09-12 23:29:08
Grant, we don't have that kind of weather here yet! For the most part, it's still summer.

Dave, I think I'm going to jump in the Ocean after all this discussion!
 
dave 2014-09-12 20:24:49
Bill, the only continent is Australia. Oceania is the region. I'm positive the term your looking for for the geographic region is Oceania. Oceanic would be an adjective not a noun. I have no idea what Oceanian would be.
 
grant228 2014-09-12 15:59:48
Bill, I've heard oceanic but not oceanian. By the way, you and your fellow northerners must be a tough breed. My teacher currently on exchange in Alberta sent a photo on Wednesday showing her school blanketed by snow! I thought it was still summer over there?
 
bill 2014-09-12 12:07:42
Right, that's the name of the continent. However, I'm looking for the correct demonym. For example, I wrote, "North American Geography." North American refers to the residents of North America or belonging to North America.

So what is correct for Oceania? If not Oceanian, I guess it must be Oceanic. Grant?
 
dave 2014-09-12 10:54:23
In business in North America we use Oceania
 
bill 2014-09-12 09:16:10
What should it read, Grant? Oceanic?
 
grant228 2014-09-12 07:56:27
Gentlemen, have just checked the new geography categories and feel "Oceanian" needs correction.
 
dave 2014-09-10 21:58:28

bill 2014-09-10 19:29:27
So Grant, the name of the category should be "Oceanic Geography"?
 
grant228 2014-09-10 15:58:00
Too many visits to the refrigerator? I think the correct terminology is 'Oceania' or 'Oceanic'. Regarding the relative merits of both codes, the AFL people in retaliation call rugby league 'thugby league' or mobile wrestling.
 
dave 2014-09-10 11:27:23
Bill, I think it's Oceana

Thanks for the Clemson Quiz Orange
 
bill 2014-09-10 11:13:16
Hi Gang - we decided to break the Geography category into sub categories by continent. Hope you like the change.

Grant, is "Oceanian Geography" grammatically correct?
 
bill 2014-09-10 11:11:01
That's hilarious! Since when did a person's degree of toughness become judged on the degree to which he can get his head kicked in and still stand?! I hear Refrigerator Perry is now about 400 pounds and not in good shape!
 
grant228 2014-09-09 07:30:53
Bill, the AFL game is looked down on by the rugby league fraternity as not being tough enough. They feel there's too much kicking hence their nickname for it of "aerial ping pong". Regarding injuries, all contact sports out here are beginning to become concerned by the number of brain related problems in retired players. The fellow I remember from your game was the one nicknamed "the refrigerator".
 
bill 2014-09-08 10:14:19
Hi Grant - thanks very much for the quiz on the Sydney Swans! I don't know anything about the Australian Game, only that it is rough and they don't wear any where enough protective gear (at least compared to American football).

Are there a lot of injuries? Guess that's all relative, eh?

To answer your question about ages of players, the average age is about 20. "Dem rascals grows big down on a da farm here!"
 
grant228 2014-09-07 16:10:56
Dave, we hear of the popularity of college football over here. how old are the players because some of them look the size of your professional boys?
 
dave 2014-09-07 07:57:13
Grant, I like college football and also enjoy watching golf.
 
grant228 2014-09-05 16:52:38
Bill, i have an interest in the Sydney Swans but am more of a rugby league follower. If you think sport from down here may be of interest, I'll give it a go.
 
bill 2014-09-05 12:03:03
Grant, do you have a favorite AFL team? We could use a couple quizzes on the AFL. We have three right now as you can see in the sports category (under football).

I've been writing a lot of college and NFL (American football, of course) quizzes lately and they are fairly easy to write. I usually ask the same sorts of questions - what are the team colors?, what is their mascot?, who did they hire as their coach in 20XX?, etc...

If you have a favorite, please consider writing one or two. If it's "not your bag", we totally understand that too.
 
grant228 2014-09-04 03:44:15
No, Dave. The AFL gets the most number of viewers on TV and attenders at games. Soccer has its traditional supporters who are fervid in their belief that their game is superior but numbers don't bear that out. Knowing the plethora of top class sport you're exposed to, what is your favourite?
 
dave 2014-09-03 22:43:39
Interesting Grant. I was thinking which sport attracts the biggest audience at the highest level so it sounds like Ike it's futball (soccer)
 
grant228 2014-09-03 03:56:50
Dave, we have a population of 22 million that supports a variety of winter "football" codes. AFL (Australian Rules Football) has the greatest footprint. We also have rugby league, rugby union and to a lesser extent soccer - all calling themselves "football". I suppose if you're looking for a sport that is played throughout the nation it would have to be cricket. If you look at participation rates soccer would have to be the most popular.
 
dave 2014-09-02 05:55:38
Grant, what is the most popular sport in Australia?
