Apologies folks, apparently the site was down for a bit. I need to set up some monitoring.
dave 2022-05-28 12:00:49
Fans, there were a few remaining issues with the site and I believe most of them are resolved now and the site seems to be running fairly quickly on the new AWS platform. More to come but it will take time. Enjoy.
dave 2022-03-07 12:32:46
All, the site has finally been updated to version supported by the hosting
dave 2021-06-10 00:22:14
Guys, I guess I haven't checked here in a while so very sorry.
Cubs, thank you
Grant, I think a lot of it was filmed around Detroit but I don't know specific locations off-hand. For a while Michigan was offering tax breaks to Hollywood and they were filming lots of movies here. I know scenes for Whipit and Awol were filmed in downtown Ypsilanti as I was there on the set for a couple scenes. also Deniro filmed portions of Stone in downtown Ypsi.

Dave, I have just watched "Gran Torino" and discovered it was filmed in Michigan. Any locations you're familiar with?

Dear PeopleQuiz Users. I regret to inform you that there has been an issue with the site and content added in 2020 (very ironic) has been lost due to a failure at Amazon. There's is still a slight chance of recovery. More robust backups are being designed now. I believe our quiz content is fairly high quality and I have plans when I retire to write better websites ( a mobile one), mobile apps, and real time competitive games. My sincerest apologies.
dave 2021-02-10 15:58:14
Grant, I guess the database restored was from shortly after Feb 18, 2020. I'll keep working to see if I can restore something more recent.
dave 2020-02-18 14:46:46
Yea, I couldn't crack the problem Sunday Morning. I'll try to take some evening time to work on tit this week.
grant228 2020-02-16 08:12:04
Dave, I agree. He couldn't have reached the heights he did without having more than his fair share of grey matter. Good luck with the imaging issue. It would be nice to add a picture to the latest quiz by rocketgirl.
dave 2020-02-15 21:05:51
Possibly. He gave off the impression of being clunky sometimes, but in fact he was a pretty sharp guy. The image may have come from at least one incident where he stumbled and then fell, and then Chevy Chase played off of that on Saturday Night Live repeatedly.

Also Grant, I'm going to take another look at the image loading tommorow morning. Cross your fingers.
grant228 2020-02-13 18:18:04
I remember some unkind people saying they thought Gerald played too many games without his helmet!
dave 2020-02-12 21:17:42
Grant, that's awesome. And Gerald Ford played college football right here in Ann Arbor for the University of Michigan. GO BLUE!
grant228 2020-02-12 08:54:07
Dave, thanks for your feedback. She was an appealing character for her willingness to share with the public her problems. There was a lot about her to like, as there was with her husband. As we have a full consignment of quizzes on US Presidents, my project is to do similar for the First Ladies as they shared their load of the immense burden.
dave 2020-02-11 20:09:09
Great quiz on Betty Ford Grant
dave 2020-01-23 21:06:00
True Grant. There's no telling what the climate and weather will be like in Michigan in 25 years at this rate. Right now our aquafers are holding up good though.
grant228 2020-01-23 07:29:10
Dave, the way the climate is changing, I warn you not to be too complacent. It will be the big issue influencing so many areas of human activity.
dave 2020-01-22 17:40:08
Yes, we have to figure out how to better them in California over here. Not as much of a problem here in Michigan where we are still blessed - for now - with a moist climate.
grant228 2020-01-21 05:44:14
Dave, thanks for your kind wishes. The rain we had last weekend was the best we have had in years. Things are starting to green already! The best thing about the rain was it put out some fires and enabled others to be gotten under control. The most worrying thing about this summer is we are being told this is the new normal and fires like the ones we've experienced will be an annual event. Our national government has a long record of climate change denial and took little action to safeguard things on the grounds of cost. They are now seeing a preventative approach would have saved a lot of money in terms of cost of fire-fighting, homes and vegetation lost and the huge drop in our tourist numbers.
dave 2020-01-20 19:59:28
The fire situation there is now a part of the daily news in the U.S. and many seem to be rallying here to raise funds to send to help. I saw you received some rain and I hope you get more.
dave 2020-01-09 15:41:18
Grant, Ha ha, though that pic is for sure 5-10 years old, so I suppose I look younger there than now.
grant228 2020-01-06 18:19:17
Dave, they were back again yesterday and yes, were aware of the tower and mentioned the university they thought was part of your town. I showed them your picture, Dave and the nice lady said she was surprised to see such a young-looking man in charge of the site!
dave 2020-01-06 13:08:23
Yes I think maybe we've discuss the visual symbolism of the Ypsilanti water tower. lol.
grant228 2020-01-03 23:41:57
Dave, I think they were too polite to mention your impressive water tower! In the limited time between hands, they explained where Rochester was on the "mitten" and concentrated more on their grandchildren here. If they are back on Monday, I will attempt to explore their opinion of Ypsilanti.
dave 2020-01-03 21:37:44
ah yes, Rochester is not to far. Did they mention anything about Ypsi? The tower? Depot Town? The fact that it exists in the shadow of Ann Arbor? lol
grant228 2019-12-30 09:08:24
Good evening, Dave. At my bridge club this afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting and playing against two Michiganders! They are from Rochester and visiting their daughter who lives in Port Macquarie with her husband. They know Ypsilanti well!
dave 2019-12-22 23:25:35
I had an issue with the site tonight and was forced to restore from a backup a few days old. I apologize for any inconvenience and any score or comments lost.®
