Bill, You know I like to be a man of few words online.

And the Gough Whitlam quiz has been taken 33 times in 22 days, a pretty solid interest from our humble American site. (Photo courtesy http://iainhall.wordpress.com/2014/10/21/vale-edward-gough-whitlam-its-time-for-the-big-election-in-the-sky/)

And don't get me started about our flag! At least the New Zealanders whose flag is almost identical to ours are considering a change unlike us. We need the genius who designed the beautifully simple Canadian flag to advise.

Well Grant, the way I found out about his death was that suddenly his quiz started getting taken a million times!

So Whitlam took Australia "out of the woods, eh?!" I know that "God Save the Queen" thing really gets under your skin! I know it would me as well!

Bill, I'm surprised you were aware of his death at the grand age of 98. Gough Whitlam dragged Australia kicking and screaming into the world. We were a fairly insular backwater that was trapped in a conservative torpor. Many suburbs in our major cities were unsewered. Women were paid less than men. 18 year olds could be drafted to fight in Vietnam but not vote. Our national anthem was "God Save the Queen" and Aboriginal rights were non-existent. Whitlam was a child of privilege but changed all those above-mentioned inequalities. He was not perfect. His Achilles heel was a lack of economic nous. When the oil crisis of the 1970s hit, his government was ill-prepared to cope. He expected his ministers to be as able as he was but was disappointed on a number of occasions by "duds". His dismissal by the governor general in 1975 made him a martyr in the eyes of many. His legacy is the outward-looking, progressive nation we've become. Some of the extreme right still can't find a good word to say about him.

So Grant, how about a short synopsis on the life of the late Gough Whitlam? Who was he? His claim to fame?
 
bill 2014-10-21 20:33:42
Man, watch out Grant. Those roos can be hosers!
 
bill 2014-10-21 18:58:12
Dave, would you quit hogging the blog with all your verbose messages!?
 
dave 2014-10-21 16:28:30
Zen I didn't change it. Let me know if it happens again.

Bill, they don't attack houses but sometimes people. There was a story a few weeks ago of a woman in a rural Queensland town who was attacked on her way to work. I was having a jog on the course a few weeks ago when I came around a corner to be confronted by a large male. He grunted at me and made a move towards me but left it there. I think the roos here are fairly accustomed to the golfers. At this time of the year the greater danger is nesting magpies who swoop on anyone who comes near their tree.
 
bill 2014-10-21 14:16:03
Hi Grant - absolutely amazing! At least for us folks her in Michigan, USA. Now, I know they are pretty strong. Is there a danger of them coming to your house and doing damage? Or, are they like deer and attempt to avoid humans?

Bill, the log says you featured "Horror Movies of the 20th Century" a short time after I featured "Actors Who Played the Mummy". It happened YESTERDAY. I couldn't figure out why or how. I did a different feature today. I guess it's a mystery.
 
bill 2014-10-21 13:26:02
Zen, I know I didn't and the only other one would be Dave. You're welcome to switch it back and my apologies.

At the risk of reinforcing national stereotypes, below is a shot of some unusual hazards on the golf course behind my new house. I must emphasize not all golf courses in Australia have such obstacles. The males can get a little aggressive if disturbed. The troop numbers about 30 which makes a grand sight when on the hop.
 
 
zendyk 2014-10-20 21:32:16
Anybody know why the quiz I featured on "Actors Who Played the Mummy" was replaced by a quiz I had already featured this month?
 
grant228 2014-10-20 15:55:40
G'day, Bill and Dave. Have had a busy time of late hence my absence. Dave there there is a local show I'm tempted to try but as one gets older, the reflexes slow just a bit! I'm considering my options as they say in politics. Bill, to give you a geography lesson, Perth is as close to where I live as Mexico is to you. It's three hours behind us and far enough away to be considered another country. In fact, many in Western Australia have always entertained thoughts of secession. We could have our own Civil War!

Grant, I heard about the hail storms in Perth. Hope it doesn't drive prices up in your neck of the woods!
 
bill 2014-10-20 11:10:20
My straits quiz took me about 15 minutes!
 
bill 2014-10-18 19:14:16
Two of the three quizzes I wrote today were completed while sitting on the couch watching tv. I can walk and chew gum at the same time!
 
bill 2014-10-18 18:29:11
Or my quiz on Famous Channels and Straits. Somebody stop me!
 
bill 2014-10-18 17:26:07
and my quiz on the San Francisco Giants! So, who's your pick in the World Series? The Giants or the Royals?
 
bill 2014-10-18 15:01:55
Don't know but I hope you like my quiz on Geography of Asia! :-)
 
dave 2014-10-17 11:22:48
Grant, Been on any TV Trivia shows lately?

Bill, Arthur P was the equivalent of your leader of the Founding Fathers, without the romantic connotations. Leading a group of deprived and depraved criminals, coupled with a reluctant soldier group meant he had to exercise extraordinary leadership skills to build a nation from nothing. I agree totally with your comment about writing quizzes. It keeps the grey/gray cells active.
 
bill 2014-10-07 22:00:53
Hope you like my quiz on North American Geography!

Grant, thanks for quiz on Arthur Phillip! I know nothing about him but welcome his appearance to PeopleQuiz.

It's fun to write quizzes!
 
bill 2014-10-03 09:32:19
Tornado Warning (John), thanks for the new quiz on Jay Beckenstein. We definitely need more jazz quizzes!
 
 
bill 2014-10-03 09:31:06
Well, as my dear old mum used to say, "You learn something new every day now don't cha?!"
 
zendyk 2014-10-02 01:04:51
I've never heard of tramp stamps either!
 
dave 2014-10-01 20:51:16
Bill, I've never heard the term "tramp stamps"
