I have no words. After all of the things Trump has said and done, how can anyone still support him? I think a lot of those who voted for him didn't so much vote for him, as they voted against Hillary, but how can they still support him? He's INSANE!!!! Can anyone enlighten me? Grant, any idea's? Especially after the tragedy that happened in Virginia, and his words after that!

I like those thongs better than the thing thong, Grant. Thank you.
grant228 2017-08-06 06:23:09
In case I've offended sensibilities......
bill 2017-08-05 16:26:30
No sir, I don't like it!
phonerec 2017-08-05 01:28:19
I'm cracking up Grant!!!
dave 2017-08-03 17:30:30
Grant, got it.
grant228 2017-08-02 21:45:52
Deb, your comment again highlighted the differences between American and Australian English. Over here we call flip flops thongs - an entirely different connotation to Americans!
grant228 2017-08-01 20:27:04
Dave, that's the record for the middle month of our winter. The record for summer is much higher. I also heard today the whole country has had its hottest recorded July. Records have been kept since the early 1800s so worrying times.
dave 2017-08-01 01:58:54
Grant, 80 is the record? really? I didn't realize Sydney was such a cool place.
phonerec 2017-08-01 00:00:28
No denying here Grant! Last October, when it should have been heavy sweater weather, we were still in shorts, T-shirts and flip flops!!
grant228 2017-07-31 08:11:28
For all climate change deniers, Sydney, Australia had its hottest July day on record yesterday - 26.5 Celsius or 80 F.

Deb, the concept of service above self is one alien to your draft-dodging leader. I call him Emperor Donald as he's in the same league as Nero and Caligula in tems of madness. In centuries to come, people will wonder what happened to your nation's collective common sense.

I'm really upset about his stance on Transgender people in the military. I say anyone who loves this country enough to lay their lives on the line should be able to serve.
dave 2017-07-25 17:34:32
Deb, Sorry to hear about your brother. We lost my wifes brother last year also.

Grant, I think I'm going to hold my comments on Mr. Trump for right now but I may chime in soon. :)
grant228 2017-07-23 23:30:25
Bill, "hotter than blueblazes" is a term I haven't heard in years. With a colder winter down here than previous years I was hoping the world was not getting warmer but your experience would indicate the contrary. The pessimist in me says things can only get worse but the optimist says some genius will devise a method of making renewable energy more affordable and thus plentiful. Interesting times, as the Chinese say.
phonerec 2017-07-23 19:41:04
We hit 102 degrees here yesterday, with a heat index of 115. It's been pretty miserable. But did that stop my husband from playing golf? Nope!! Now that's what I call love of the game! Or dumb,,,not sure,,,,,
bill 2017-07-23 14:00:39
Hi Deb and Grant. How are things? It's hotter than blue blazes here - around 90. Moreover, the humidity is what makes it worse! Feels like a swamp here! But it never rains. They always say it's going to but never happens. UGH!
phonerec 2017-07-21 23:34:23
No apology needed! And I know we are the laughing stock of the world now. Once one of the most respected, now a laughing stock. It makes me sad beyond measure.
grant228 2017-07-21 02:19:18
Deb, my apology for the unintended sexism. Thank you for your response. Things are grim for anyone who believes in America's role as an exemplary nation and world leader. I also read today some extreme right wingers are happy to learn of John McCain's illness saying it is what he deserves for his less than enthusiastic support for D Trump. To think a man whose record is one of extraordinary courage, leadership and self-sacrifice should be treated like that says a lot for what passes for political debate.
phonerec 2017-07-20 22:49:05
I'm not one of the gentlemen, but I will say that you are right. If a Democrat had pulled this stunt impeachment proceedings would have already started. Now the special prosecutor is going to dig in to Don Sr's finances, and I bet he's sweating bullets. He flat out told Mr. Mueller not to. Follow the money,,,,,,
grant228 2017-07-16 12:31:02
All right, gentlemen. I have tried to stay clear of your political situation since the installation of Emperor Donald but the news that Don jr met with Russian officials surely begs some comment? If this had happened on the Democrat side we would have heard screaming from the roof tops. Is anyone willing to offer a comment?
phonerec 2017-07-09 18:32:40
They have lots of public displays here, but there is always somebody who breaks the law and shoots them off at their home. You can call the police on them, but to be honest, it's pretty low on their list of investigations. But now it's over, and we're back to our normal bliss.
grant228 2017-07-09 09:34:27
Deb, is it a day-long detonation of fireworks by anyone? On our national day we have fireworks but in a central location and set off by paid professionals for a set period at night. It's illegal for anyone else to do so. Never the less, dogs still experience trauma during these explosions.
phonerec 2017-07-07 15:32:02
I never thought about that! I call it "National Scare the Crap out of Your Dog Day". My Lilly HATES fireworks, so I don't indulge. It's supposedly illegal to shoot them off in the city limits of our town, but it doesn't stop rude, inconsiderate people from doing it.
bill 2017-07-07 13:43:11
I guess we just want to be different, Grant!
grant228 2017-07-06 20:37:36
Deb, it's Pedants' Corner time! Americans write the date 7/4/17 for the 4th of July but pronounce it the way Australians write it, 4/7/17. Why?
phonerec 2017-07-04 19:19:43
Happy 4th of July!!!
bill 2017-07-03 14:33:57
I'm holding my own, Deb, thank you!
grant228 2017-07-01 20:34:33
Good morning, Bill. Nice to know you are back on your feet. Dave had passed on Robert's comments which was nice of both. Regarding his claim to be a descendant of Wallace, I'm assuming he's not a direct descendant as I thought Wallace left no children? Over on the other side of the globe, we're now shivering through an unusually cold snap. It makes me wonder how "Michiganders" survive your longer and more brutal winters?
