Dave, bizarre is a nice way to put it!
dave 2016-09-21 00:42:24
It's really bizarre grant.
grant228 2016-09-20 21:10:13
Dave, we outside your election bubble shake our heads at what is transpiring in your campaign. I know politicians always have to pander to the lowest common denominator but this time round the bar has been set frighteningly low. There appears few attempts to appeal to lofty ideals.
dave 2016-09-19 02:02:10
Grant, I think so!!!
grant228 2016-09-16 08:23:51
Gentlemen, today I heard the Republican candidate interviewed on his state of health and exercise routines. He stated he did a lot of gesturing in his speeches which he regarded as exercise! Is he really a subversive social study to ascertain how many stupid statements a person can make before the majority of your countrymen and women realize they're being taken for a ride?
grant228 2016-09-15 22:00:47
Dave, thanks for the update. Michigan has never featured in travellers' tales of famed ski runs. It's only natural living where you do that you should have a fair bit of snow.
dave 2016-09-15 18:27:37
We have some skiing here in Michigan also Grant.
grant228 2016-08-28 09:24:15
Dave, we have more snowfields than Switzerland! It's just they're a fair way from the majority of the people and our ski runs pale when compared with those say in Europe or Colorado. Our mountains are pretty small also so the snow doesn't stay for long. The ski season lasts at most for three months. If you're looking for good skiing in the southern hemisphere then check out New Zealand.

Gang: Each day, for the next ten days, we'll be featuring a pre-season top ten team, starting today with Notre Dame. Good luck and enjoy!
dave 2016-08-26 10:14:58
Bill, yea I figured but I am just going by Michigan's opener. Grant, are there many locations in Australia that are good for winter sports?
bill 2016-08-25 11:42:33
Even closer than that, Dave! Actually, college football kicks off tomorrow night when Hawaii visits Cal (although most teams don't start until next week). In recognition of the CFB season, we'll feature a CFB quiz daily starting today for the next week. Lots of fun!
grant228 2016-08-25 11:37:53
Bill, that's cold comfort to we who live in Oz. We do a lot better in Olympics when the water is not solid!
dave 2016-08-25 09:45:29
And of course, two weeks or so until college football here in the states.
bill 2016-08-24 13:32:24
These sorts of things happen, Grant. Hey, only 533 days until the 2018 Winter Olympics! :-)
grant228 2016-08-20 04:33:06
Bill, so was I. As with a number of our teams at this Olympics they appeared to have suffered stage-fright. I think your boys can safely bank this gold medal. One hopes our team will gain something from this resounding defeat. It is a test of character to learn from a loss and do something with it.
bill 2016-08-19 23:46:49
Grant, so sorry about your Aussie boys. Can't believe how badly they took it on the chin from the Serbs. Was looking forward to a AU vs US match. Oh well, maybe in '20.
bill 2016-08-19 13:34:06
Don't get me started, buddy! If it weren't for the volleykinis, who would actually watch it?!
grant228 2016-08-19 00:01:44
Bill, I think the beach volleyball is an even better spectator sport.
bill 2016-08-11 15:35:40
Wow! Our swimmers are performing very well! Watching The Games right now and a reporter is out on the beach there. Looks very inviting (and so does the beach! nyuk, nyuk...)

Yes, I saw the hoops yesterday and it was a great match. Your Aussie boys out hustled us in every phase.
grant228 2016-08-11 09:02:43
Bill, enough of politics. Good luck over the almost next three months. You must be pleased with the performance of your Olympics team. Michael Phelps has placed himself above everyone in an untouchable position. An extraordinary avchievement. Our basketball team gave your boys a good run for their money, leading at half time. If both teams make the final, it should be a top match.
bill 2016-08-11 03:02:06
I do like Trump on a lot of the issues. But he is really getting me sick to my stomach with the insults and his constant flying off the handle. Billary makes me barf and shouldn't even be running for president. In fact, she should probably be in prison. I think I'm going to vote for Gary Johnson. He may not win but at least I'm voting with my conscience.
grant228 2016-08-10 09:30:40
Bill, you know my opinion of your country and your countrymen and women. America has been a shining light for the rest of the world in terms of commitment and sacrifice. Without the intervention of the US in the second world war, my country would not be the place it is now. That is why Trump is the antithesis to all things that have made the US the leader of the world. He talks about building a wall across the Mexican border but the logistics make such a statement appear non-sensical. He insults women i.e Megan Kelly's abuse about her menstruation. He talks about bringing jobs back to America but has profited from out-sourcing his companies to China where goods are made more cheaply. He berates immigrants but appears to like them as wives and now he has given a dog-whistle to any of his crazed supporters to use their guns to get rid of his opponent. You use the terms "crass and belligerent". How your country could consider giving the nuclear codes to someone whose fuse is so short is frightening. If he by some amazing twist of fate becomes your leader, heaven help the rest of us!
bill 2016-08-09 14:10:35
I love Trump's stance on the issues. He's got great ideas for potential solutions. Great job creating experience and will help even up our trade deficit. A southern border wall will help keep Americans safe from any criminals crossing the border illegally (there are bad apples in every bunch).

However, it's a shame that Trump is so crass and belligerent. He acts (and over reacts) like a kid most times. If he acted more mature and professional, he would easily win over Billary and could potentially be a great president.

I think the third-party candidates are going to do well this time around.
dave 2016-08-05 08:48:46
I'm with you on that Grant.
grant228 2016-08-03 08:11:37
Dave, I agree with you about the lady's exposure to the machinations of power but there's something about her that doesn't ring true. That's not saying I lean towards the other fellow. If he got elected I would start building my fallout shelter. When fellow Republicans have disowned him, there's something seriously wrong. He lacks class, judgment and gravitas. I can't believe your countrymen could contemplate giving him the nuclear codes.
dave 2016-08-02 17:07:29
Grant, Yes it's arguably a classic case of having to choose between the lesser of two evils. I will say though that Hillary is actually quite qualified from an experience point of view. She lived in the White House for 8 years, was a U.S. Senator, and then Secretary of State. I tend to lean Republican on many issues so I don't say that for any reason other than to point it out.
grant228 2016-07-26 08:38:07
Gentlemen, I am surprised there has been no political comment from you. Is that because you're saddled with two uneviable choices in November? Surely in a nation of 300 million plus you're capable of producing better candidates?
dave 2016-07-22 13:51:05
Zen, Hopefully your'e finding the site more responsive than it used to be. We've put it on Amazon AWS now. Best in class cloud hosting, or some would say.
bill 2016-07-22 01:57:50
Isn't he wonderful?! Z, with the beach picture are you telling us that you're going on vacation?
zendyk 2016-07-22 00:17:29
