Freddie, tried your advice but with no success. It must be a problem with the server on my side of the planet.
freddie 2019-03-22 08:45:39
Grant, there's a character set conflict for some reason. Try cutting and pasting. I'll try to fix it today.
grant228 2019-03-22 07:37:21
Dave, the link won't open on my server. Any advice?
dave 2019-03-21 02:02:25
Multiple parallel realities exist
dave 2019-03-06 19:28:44
Grant that's awesome. There's a lot more that could be done to allow more administrative freedom. Perhaps I'll have more time in the next few years
grant228 2019-03-06 05:07:39
Dave, thanks for the encouraging words. This new assignment has added a much-needed element of routine to this retiree's life! I'll let you know if there will be times when I am unable to complete this task.

I wanted to take a moment to encourage everyone on PeopleQuiz to please give us feedback about what you like but, more importantly what you don't like, what featurers you'd like to see, and any failures or bugs you notice. It's likely that 70 percent of what I'll hear about problems or what would be good to improve (I.e. make a better mobile version) is already known, and it's just a question of getting time to work on it. Getting your feedback helps prioritize tremendously though, and uncovers other things. Registered users can use the private messaging to send to me. Unregistered users can send email to innovativeamb and that is a gmail user, so And Grant, loving those picks for trivia and biography features, you're doing a tremendous job. If I see one that's not been updated for a while I might jump in and update one, but feel free to have free reign.

The way technology is advancing today you could probably fit quite a bit of info on the back of a postage stamp.
But it's true that I have been in this field for nearly 30 years now.
grant228 2019-03-01 03:19:09
Dave, I'll leave the technical side to you! My knowledge of that stuff would fit on the back of a postage stamp.
dave 2019-02-28 14:49:36
Grant, I'm hoping to be able to work on the site more than I have in the past, improving and adding features and perhaps a mobile browser version and/or a mobile app.
grant228 2019-02-27 10:25:18
Dave, always happy to help! I time them to ensure they appear about 1am your time. It has also helped my understanding of the full extent of your site.
dave 2019-02-27 03:02:46
Grant love the feature selections
dave 2019-02-21 23:05:05
maybe I will do one. I never followed him so I'm pretty neutral, but his district could have probably benifited from someone new at some point. But if you want to talk about career politicians having a hold, his wife has the seat now. Go figure
grant228 2019-02-21 18:45:06
Dave, his career encapsulates both sides of the argument. As he's your representative, I'll leave the quiz on him to you.
dave 2019-02-18 17:02:53
Oh and John Dingell was from Michigan. Having served so long he's probably a good candidate for a quiz.
dave 2019-02-18 16:59:53
Grant, I think that's true but I also have a couple thoughts about the other side of the coin: 1) First, we already have a system that supposedly allows citizens to decide - the vote. I'm not a big fan of over legislation and We'd be sort of saying "ok you get to decide with your vote, but not all the time". 2) There can be cases where we sort of dismiss experience and don't know what we'll be getting to replace it. It's true though that sometimes politicians in legislature get so entrenched it can be hard to get the votes to remove them, even when we likely need someone new. I do thinnk there should possibly be term limits but what should the length be?

All that said, here's a good example of what you're talking about I think:
grant228 2019-02-17 23:59:36
Dave, your nation has it right when it comes to limiting presidential terms. It should do with all elected reps as we should here. If those we've elected can't achieve something in two terms, they should get out of the way. This would also see the end of career politicians who care more about their skin than the country and people they claim they want to help. Keeping new blood and ideas would only benefit and ensure those with whom we entrust power have a grounded perspective, not one generated by living in a Washington or Canberra bubble.
dave 2019-02-16 13:23:45
Grant, I think one of the biggest problems in American politics today is the growing gap between left and right. It seems to me that society keeps trying to paint everything black and white (figuratively speaking) and the reality is much more grey
grant228 2019-02-15 21:24:55
Dave, I've just read the article you provided the link for and it paints the scene graphically and accurately. Like most countries we have our fair share of eccentric politicians who attract those similarly inclined. Like other countries we have more than our fair share of those who went into politics for noble reasons but then lost their way, concentrating more on re-election than the needs of those they're supposed to be helping. It wasn't always like this.
dave 2019-02-15 10:13:39
Hard to imagine anyone to the right of the tea party. But yes I'm sure they are not reflective of the character of most of the legislature of your great country.
grant228 2019-02-15 06:46:45
Dave, this lot are on the outer fringe of politics here. The two men involved are/were part of the One Nation party - a group to the right of people like your Tea Party. The party has a long history of splits, fights and disgruntlement!
dave 2019-02-14 17:35:53
Grant, Looks like some wild times in Politics down there in Oz eh?
dave 2019-02-10 14:17:22
Today’s is Bill’s birthday. Thinking of you old friend.
dave 2019-02-05 20:08:26
Grant, Very eloquent
grant228 2019-02-05 17:40:26
Dave, we have a famous poem called "My Country" by Dorothea Mackellar about the joys and challenges of living in our wide brown land. The image below is an updated version of what we now face.
dave 2019-02-05 13:55:19
No doubt about it Grant
grant228 2019-02-05 06:34:15
Dave, there are strange stirrings afoot with the world's climate. I hope we all survive!
dave 2019-02-04 12:59:35
Sounds hot there.
Believe it or not we are having very high temperatures here now for this time of year Grant. It's 43 degrees Fahrenheit here this morning, a very warm reading for first thing in the morning in February in Michigan.
grant228 2019-02-01 18:46:35
While you're freezing, it was announced yesterday that last month was the hottest and driest month (not just January) on record. Parts of Oz had had 120 F for over a week, millions of fish dying in our largest river system and bushfires raging in our coldest state of Tasmania. If that's not climate change, I don't know what is!
dave 2019-02-01 18:10:22
Grant, Yes thats not far from where I live. I have been there. There is a small river there. It's small enough that I have no doubt it could have easily frogen over.®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
