Grant, thanks for the quiz on Robert Ingersoll. My mother’s maiden name is Ingerson. Many generations back, her branch of the family changed their name to distance themselves from Robert Ingersoll. What’s that they say? That there are really only 7 degrees of separation. Small world!

Welcome to PeopleQuiz Benedicte, that's quite a one day score you ran up.

I'm so sorry guys, the service was Saturday and I meant to post that Friday, because t the end of the week was so hectic it got away from me.

I apologize profusely. I spent some time with his family after the service at a very next cue luncheon. He left 4 beautiful kids, and I think there's still some coping going on, but they are doing as well as can be expected. send me anything you'd like to convey via private messages and I will get it to them. I plan to do a planting at their house in honor of Bill when the weather warms.

Dave, any word on when Bill's service will be? Obviously we can't be there, but we can send good thoughts and prayers to you and his family at that time.

Also, has anyone tried a biography quiz lately? I was checking on them and they don't seem to come up, so I think I need to fix that, but I wondered if anyone had tried them recently.

In other news, the RapidFire Trivia had not been working but I checked and realized I had fixed it last year so thats a nice game to enjoy - playing for points one question at a time in your favorite category.
 
dave 2019-01-03 14:56:06
Grant, done, and I had thought of that yesteday so thanks for reminding me.

Dave, is it possible as a tribute to Bill to have his personal quiz as the featured quiz?
 
dave 2019-01-02 13:44:05
That’s a good idea. Bill has the stash of merchandise but I think I had a t-shirt. I’ll have to find it.
 
lmcubs 2019-01-02 01:45:55
Good idea, Deb! I will dig mine out and wear it to the gym in the morning!
 
grant228 2019-01-01 22:41:43
Deb, I still have mine and will wear it today in honor of our friend. The weather down here is more conducive to T shirts!
 
phonerec 2019-01-01 19:33:44
I slept in one of my Peoplequiz T shirts (yes, I still have them, and wear them) even though it was something like 23 degrees here last night. The memories of great times kept me warm.

Thank You all for your kind wishes. Bill did indeed love his family very much. With any luck the site will continue in tribute to him and perhaps someday I can shake loose some time to work on it further, do a mobile site/app, etc.

Here's a pic of Bill and I in the PeopleQuiz lab working on the site 11 years ago.

My heart hurts for you, Dana, and the kids. And the entire Peoplequiz family. We may not come here as often as we use to, but you are all in my thoughts and prayers. He's missed already.
 
lmcubs 2019-01-01 00:05:06
I am so sorry to read this! I had been following Bill on Facebook as he talked about his failing health. So very unfair! But, his posts were such a testament to his love of family and his faith. My deepest sympathies to you, his family, and all his friends.
 
grant228 2018-12-31 22:13:31
Dave, I am shocked. Over the ten years I've known you and Bill he impressed me with his passion, dedication and good humor. Please pass on my condolences to his family. I hope this wonderful site is one of his legacies that will endure. A very sad day.
 
dave 2018-12-31 22:06:30
Grant, perhaps someday!!

I need to take a moment Grant, to inform you and other regular PeopleQuiz players of the passing of my friend, and the site's co-founder with me, Bill Brauer. Bill had had a lung ailment for some time and contracted pneumonia over the holiday, and the illness was too much for him. I'll miss him chiming in here, and wish his family comfort. I expect to see them soon. I apologize for being the bearer of this news but felt I needed to let folks know here.
 
grant228 2018-12-23 22:53:30
Dave, I met four friendly Texan young men when I went zip-lining at Queenstown. They were not typical of the Texan stereotype. If they can make the trip, so could you!
 
dave 2018-12-21 13:21:28
I apologize for being so absent everyone. Work has been busy.
Grant, Beautiful. I'd love to go to New Zealand. Hope you enjoyed.
 
grant228 2018-12-09 19:55:28
Hello, Bill. I'm hoping hockey is not the violent five minute compilation I saw because the attrition rate would be so high there would be no players left skating. Back home in Oz after two marvellous weeks in NZ. A more picturesque place I haven't been to. Stunning views everywhere accompanied by very friendly people.
 
bill 2018-12-08 16:06:49
Stats show fighting in hockey is way down - good thing. I love the game for it's speed and finesse, not fighting. Hope everyone is well. Grant, looks lovely where you are!

Dave, it's a fascinating comment on society that we are willing to accept or overlook such violence but become enraged with a few ill-chosen words from politicians or broadcasters. Enough of that. I am currently enjoying my second week on the south island of New Zealand and am entranced by the majesty of the place. The physical beauty is stunning. At the moment I'm in Lake Tekapo gazing across its azure surface framed in the distance by snow capped mountains.
 
dave 2018-11-26 14:23:24
I should have credited denverpost.com on that pic
 
dave 2018-11-26 14:21:43
Yes, hockey is one sport where almost outright violence seems to be encouraged. I once almost got into a fight with my cousin because he felt the fighting was an acceptable, respected, and even desired part of the game. Of course he was a hockey player. As much as I wanted to disagree he probably wasnn;t all that wrong in regards to where the attitude about the role of fighting in the sport amongst those involved. The caption to the attached image was "should fighting be allowed in Hockey"
 
 
grant228 2018-11-19 20:45:13
Dave, I've seen some pretty ferocious hits via the rugby codes we have out here but nothing like those dished out in that hockey footage. It wasn't one or two either. Graphic mayhem on ice if done anywhere else would see the offenders jailed! Are such incidents part of the game or do the officials take action?
 
dave 2018-11-19 16:33:21
Grant, I don't know if I'm that much of a hockey fan, but I would suspect they definitely do. It's a pretty big deal. There was a documentary about a US pro (American) football player who had a lot of concussions in the 80's and now he has ALS and there is alot of theory that the concussions played a role. Also in the Michigan football game on Saturday a player was taken out on a stretcher with what may have been a severe concussion. I don't know why Hockey would be any different. It's very physical.
 
grant228 2018-11-17 09:53:18
Dave, I know you're a hockey fan so thought you might be able to help. I have just watched a compilation of incredible hockey collisions and wonder if the players have to worry about long term brain damage as footballers do?
 
dave 2018-11-05 13:02:33
Bill, Hope the health is better now and we'll see you back more. Dave
 
grant228 2018-10-27 02:21:06
Hi, Bill! Welcome back! I hope the health issues have abated. Looking forward to seeing more of your contributions.
 
bill 2018-10-26 17:11:40
Hi Gang - hope everyone is well! Sorry I haven't chimed in here in a while. Lots of health issues lately but holding my own.
