Dave, the boys went close but the All Blacks were always on top. I think it's Thanksgiving over there today. Have heard it's more important than Christmas in terms of families getting together. Heard a story on our radio yesterday that some restaurants in Oz are now doing Thanksgiving dinners, with turkey and all the trimmings!

Grant, Yes, I've been meaning to say sorry about the rugby match but there's no shame in making it to the championship and there's always next year.

Bill, the mental image one conjures is disturbing! I think it's time we moved on.
bill 2015-11-02 21:18:10
Maybe King Kong. Hilarious!
grant228 2015-11-02 13:54:20
Bill, I defy anyone to become the slightest bit aroused at those two stunners!

Grant: how dare you put X-rated material on the front page of PeopleQuiz!

Dave, the Wallabies predictably were beaten by the All Blacks but gave a great show in the second half when they came within four points of them. The All Blacks showed their class and power to run away 34-17. We'll meet them and the USA team in Japan in four years.
grant228 2015-10-28 05:32:36
Dave, it should be one mighty match - not for the faint-hearted. The Kiwis are a fearsome side but the Wallabies have found that element that's been missing for some time. Their coach has given them what we call "mongrel". The only drawback is the match will be on 2am Monday! The feeling between both sides would be similar to a US/Canada hockey match - no prisoners taken!

Thanks Grant,
and congrats to your rugby team on dominating a sport where the US has a long way to go to be competitive at the World Cup Level

grant228 2015-10-26 05:44:30
Bill, I saw on our news tonight the courageous rescue of those ISIS hostages by your brave soldiers and the unfortunate death of one of your men. Whenever people want to knock the US and what it does around the world, they should remember such actions and sacrifice. I'd much prefer a strong and vigilant U S than a similar China or Iran.
bill 2015-10-19 10:23:57
You are correct! If someone wants something bad enough, they will find it. My guess is that stronger drug laws will only increase the black market.
grant228 2015-10-15 02:28:39
Bill, I'm intrigued by today's feature quiz which highlights Reagan's war on drugs. My feelings on that are if people are that stupid they want to put noxious substances into their bodies, there's not much we can do about it. Your country's failed experiment with Prohibition showed people will always find ways to get what they think they need.
bill 2015-10-09 21:24:35
We're always glad to have them! Some of the people you come up with I've never even heard of! That's good, though, because people who do search for one of your "radar blips of history" will easily find your quiz via a web search!

As for me, I'm mired in writing football quizzes (tis the season) but they are popular. I'll soon move off this to writing more Personality Quizzes again.

Our start to fall is warm, dry and pleasant.
grant228 2015-10-06 05:19:04
Good evening, Bill. I've had time to apply a little more time to quizzes as schools are on their Spring fortnight break. The weather here is warming up considerably with us receiving the hottest start to Spring on record. Regarding my quiz writing choices, sometimes I think I've come to a dead-end with famous people but then keep coming across more! It's a "chore" I'm sure will occupy me for some time.
bill 2015-10-02 09:42:26
Hi Grant: Thanks for your recent quizzes. Some very interesting people, for sure. You're our best author - ever - and we thank you for it! Hope all is warm and pleasant on the SE coast of Australia! :-)
dave 2015-09-15 13:56:02
We will be working on a better front page link for it, but for those of you that enjoy PeopleQuiz regularly and would like to make a contribution to the site to help fund us, you can donate to the PeopleQuiz website here
bill 2015-09-15 11:43:05
Grant, I already added his mini bio and see that you've already wrote a quiz on him. Thanks very much!
grant228 2015-09-15 04:38:00
Dave, thanks for that. The female part of the pic is obviously the better half. I also have to PeopleQuiz a new Australian Prime Minister. We now have number 29 - our fifth PM in 5 years! No, we're not trying to outdo Japan or Italy with a revolving door of leaders.
dave 2015-09-14 11:54:11
Grant Great new profile pic.
grant228 2015-09-09 16:07:18
Bill, I think he was a bit over the top with the statement he was " a goner" but a big roo can do a bit of damage with its claws. Re the photo I thought it was time for a change. The photo was taken on our trip, this one in the lovely French town of Amboise.
bill 2015-09-08 18:56:27
That is wacky! Lucky for sure. I don't think we have any animals comparable to that here in the USA. Maybe bears, I guess. They really want to avoid humans, but when provoked...

Hey, I love your new profile picture!
grant228 2015-09-04 04:20:16
Bill, you may remember when I posted a photo of kangaroos on the golf course behind my house you asked about the 'roos willingness to attack people. If you cut and paste the link below you'll see what happened to a local man this week when he encountered an angry kanga.
bill 2015-09-01 09:52:40
I don't know what the answer is. I'm not a big "gun guy" and am in favor of less guns. How it happens, that is the question.
grant228 2015-08-30 04:37:56
Bill, had a memorable time but have been battling jetlag all week! Thanks for your reasoned response. I wonder if your founding fathers had the weaponry of today in mind when they framed your constitution e.g your comment about machine guns. I know if the number of Americans killed each year by guns weilded by their compatriots had been killed by terrorists then there would be outrage. The story from a few months ago of a child who killed his mother with her gun summed up the futility and stupidity of people carrying guns with them going about their daily routine. All I know is unless there is a change in your national thinking, the sad, mad, infuriating stories of loss will not cease. Yes, you might be right about the need for people to be more caring and less self-absorbed but life presents challenges that can enrage and if the wronged person has immediate access to a gun they can use it, as has been repeatedly played out throughout your country.
bill 2015-08-28 12:11:56
Hi Grant! Glad you had a great vacation!

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

That is part of our Constitution.

There is an ongoing banter that is keeping things the way they are as follows:

* The left (mostly Dems) - want more background checks and gun control
* The right (mostly Reps) - guns aren't the problem, you need to control all the nut jobs.

I most certainly think we could do more background checks. People have to wait for a driver's license, why not guns? And people don't need a machine gun if their intent is to simply shoot a deer in the woods. The phrase "right to bear arms" should not be distorted. If so, maybe I should go ahead and buy myself a tank and start blowing away buildings full of people? The intent of our founding fathers was to be able bear arms and to protect yourself not possess the ability to blow people away in one fell swoop. Everything we do should be based on that knowledge.

How do know who the nut jobs are versus the non nut jobs? Dunno?

Bill O on Fox brought up an interesting thought last night. That is that the lack of spirituality and the rise of the "life is all about me" mentality has made people only interested in themselves and don't care who they have to harm that may be in their way.

For those of us that are spiritual (including myself), God provides us with a path that we are to follow: "love others as thyself." Maybe more folks need to follow that scripture?

It is my firm belief that people need not be spiritual to adhere to these words. We are all here as brothers and sisters of the world. Let's put ourselves second and others first. Note the notion of a God is not in the context of what I just said.

I don't pretend to know all the answers but I do know that mean people suck.

Dear Bill and Dave. Your nation is a beacon of qualities and strengths all nations should strive to emulate. Sadly, the US also exemplifies the worst in human nature, as evidenced by that unspeakable shooting shown on TV today. What will it take for the average American to say "No more!"? No more children slain at their school desks, no more citizens enjoying a night at the cinema slaughtered in their seats, no more innocents blown away where ever they are because some nutter is able to access a gun and wreak his warped brand of vengeance on the world? In my country in 1996 we had a sad loner kill 35 people with automatic weapons but we took steps to try and ensure such a travesty would never recur. So far there has not been a repeat of this madness. Such political will seems sadly lacking in your land, so how many more innocents have to die before you all say enough is enough and you begin to wind back the availability of guns?
grant228 2015-08-24 05:08:20
Dave, arrived home today feeling very jet-lagged but knowing we've seen a good chunk of Europe. Even though we had a great time and saw lots of interesting stuff, the final words of the Wizard of Oz movie remain true -"There's no place like home"!
dave 2015-08-23 08:13:10
Grant, sounds like you had a really great vacation
grant228 2015-08-22 11:28:46
Hello, Dave and Bill. I'm sitting at Heathrow waiting for our 9:30pm flight back to Oz. The buildings are holiday accommodation for the Finns who made us very welcome. Stockholm was also similar as was Skagen which is on the northern most point of Denmark. I hope to return to Scandinavia. The photo below is me at The Abba Museum in Stockholm with a few friends.®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
