I guess someone needs to feature some Sidney Poitier stuff now.

Thanks, Dave. My daughter's lucky she looks like her mother! Regarding the site reconstruction, happy to help whenever you ask.

Grant, Congratulations, she's lovely. Apologies for being so absent lately. Between work, building the house, and the Jazz band, things are pretty hectic lately. But I am still working on the architecture fix for the site and have made a little progress. The DB on the new site has those quizzes we restored Grant. Hopefully I can get the new site ready by Christmas, or at least ready for testing and I can share the link.

Much appreciated, Cubs. Covid restrictions meant there were only ten guests but this was their third attempt at getting hitched so leapt at the first available opportunity.

Congratulations, Grant! Fatherly pride is warranted!
grant228 2021-10-16 08:59:37
Please forgive a Peoplequiz player for indulging in a bit of fatherly pride. This was me yesterday!
lmcubs 2021-09-30 22:12:59
Thanks for the update! Good luck!

All. Notice. PeopleQuiz has been experiencing issues with Amazon AWS restarting the site and regressing the database. We currently have a copy from approximately August 2021 (though what you see here - for now - is older). In addition, Amazon has made the PQ version of PHP MYSQL Libraries obsolete, so the site must have an extensive architectural update to run. Please be patient as I work through this. I'm anticipating having everything resolved by October 2021

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.

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.
lmcubs 2019-12-16 21:17:17
I had to look up when I started on this site. 2006! Wow! That is quite a long time!
dave 2019-12-16 16:52:33
Yes it's been a while since I read it but I recall. I remember now, the boook was called Before the Trumpet

Dave, his life was a rich source for any biographer, especially the relationship he had with his mother. A very domineering woman!®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
