Hi jake82 - thanks very much for the Slumber Party quiz!

Hey Grant, you know much of Halloween has its roots in Europe via the ancient Celts and Romans. The North Americans just took a couple of the holidays - Samhain, Pomona and All Saints - and tweaked them into what is now Halloween - and then commercialized it (of course)!

To really test your knowledge of Halloween's history - and this is to all our players - make sure to take our feature quiz on the front page today!

Well, all you North Americans, you'll be pleased to know your cultural imperialism march continues unabated. Tonight I've viewed many Halloween costumed kids traversing the neighbourhood. 20 years ago this was never seen. The support for Halloween, of couse, comes from the corporations who'll profit from supporting this cultural import.

Thanks Zen

Dave, I managed to get back in, using a roundabout way. I'm not sure what the problem was. I let you know if it happens again.

Bill, I heard on our radio some of the radio advertisements from some of your more extreme mid-term candidates. They sound an "interesting" lot to say the least. It looks as if poor Barack is suffering the "G.W. Bush" effect - Democrats wanting to get as far away as possible from association with him.
 
bill 2014-10-26 09:46:40
Grant, you are so right about the Canadian flag - proud and simple!

The big story here in the states is the "mid-term" elections coming up next week. The Republicans already have majority control the House. If the Republicans can win majority control of the Senate, they will basically render Obama ineffective in the final two years of his tenure.

Several big governor races happening too, including the race here in Michigan where Gov. Rick Snyder is expected to maintain his post.

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.
 
bill 2014-10-22 10:08:25
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!
 
grant228 2014-10-22 02:40:23
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.
 
bill 2014-10-21 20:35:45
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.
 
grant228 2014-10-21 15:57:11
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?
 
zendyk 2014-10-21 14:04:12
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.
 
grant228 2014-10-21 00:52:47
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!
 
bill 2014-10-20 13:35:31
 
 
bill 2014-10-20 11:12:54
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?
