Deb, we are creatures of habit! I once spent a white Christmas in England and apart from the aura of snow, I pined for a post- Christmas dinner swim at the beach! I hope you get the Christmas you’re used to.

We here in the US are so use to it being cold during the Christmas season, being warm, or downright hot would be weird to us. It's been unseasonably warm here in Oklahoma, so I'm having a hard time getting into the spirit. I have at least finished all of my shopping, and wrapping, and have even made some Christmas cookies! Now I can relax and start snooping under the tree for my gifts, LOL! I'm worse than a kid.

G’day, Bill! I’m assuming you meant “long” weekend. I thought you and your compatriots had a long weekend around Thanksgiving. What is the reason for this one? Regarding Christmas, I feel those in the northern hemisphere get short-changed. We, in the southern climes, get long days to enjoy the street parties and general bonhomie that comes with summer. The only drawback is we have to wait to at least 8pm to observe the Christmas lights.

Hey all: Have a log weekend so I thought I'd write a quiz on the newly-named Southern Ocean. Hope everyone is well. Christmas is coming!

No, we don't. In fact, Oklahoma is so Republican minded, my vote doesn't count. No one's does, unless you are Republican. I still vote, it's my duty, but it doesn't count.
grant228 2017-12-03 09:34:35
Deb, for your narcissist in chief, the fact he was not more popular than Hillary must eat away at him. You really don’t have a democratic system based on one vote, one value.
phonerec 2017-12-02 01:46:49
He lost the popular vote by 3 million. 3 million people. I think our electoral collage needs some serious revamping.
grant228 2017-12-01 06:56:28
Deb, I’ve stated before the president of your country represents the hope of the free world. His demeanour and presence say much to the rest of us. In spite of one or two less-than-spectacular tenures, they have all understood their extremely privileged position and have acted accordingly. This current drop-kick (it’s an Aussie expression) will go down in history as the most ill-equipped, ignorant and immature example of how badly your electoral system has let your country, and the world, down.

I didn't write this, but I wish I had. Dear World, We the people of the United States humbly and sincerely apologize for the appalling and divisive behavior of Trump. The majority of us abhor his open racism, sexism, xenophobia, bullying, lying, and astounding ignorance. We are horrified by his total lack of compassion for the most vulnerable of us or for anyone who isn't part of his circle. We want to be part of the Paris Climate Accord. We want to treat all people with respect and compassion. Many of us, so many of us, are fighting him in myriad ways. Please know that most of us are deeply saddened by what has transpired in the past year and know that we will fight divisiveness, ignorance, and hatred.....democracy will prevail!

Time will tell on Al Franken Deb. The females of SNL signed a letter supporting him, and even some of the women that accused him said they didn't think the offense(s) were enough to lose his job over.
phonerec 2017-11-25 00:56:53
I fear Al Franken's career is over, and that breaks my heart. He was going to be my guy in 2020. Yet a man who has been accused 17 times went on to be president. Makes me sick.
grant228 2017-11-23 01:41:55
Deb, I agree with you on both counts. I think we need to be careful not to over-react and ensure the punishment fits the crime. Kevin Spacey’s treatment is a case in point. If the facts as presented are correct, he performed a thoughtless and stupid act as a young man that violated the personal space of the victim. He didn’t fondle or rape the victim and to think his career may now be over is too harsh a punishment for his youthful stupidity. If somone tells an offensive sexist joke, I think most people’s reaction tells the teller they’ve overstepped the mark. I subscribe to Lenny Henry’s approach to jokes. Don’t be sexist and racist - be sexy and racy!
phonerec 2017-11-23 00:39:26
Apparently sexual harassment and assault has run amok. Now, I have no doubt most of it is legitimate, and should not be tolerated. But I also think some of them may just be a little bit butt hurt and have a thin skin. Like, if I was told a dirty joke by a man, I'd probably laugh, and I wouldn't call it sexual harassment. I think some would. So guys, be careful of what you say and do!
dave 2017-11-21 14:58:12
Got it Grant.
grant228 2017-11-17 05:12:09
Dave, down here we would substitute the u in "routed" for "o" which might be a more accurate description of the outcome! (Ask Bill to explain!)
dave 2017-11-16 17:13:06
Grant, Yea, it looks like the U.S. was routed!
grant228 2017-11-14 05:18:41
Dave, there’s a difference between rugby and rugby league. The first one has 15 in a team while R L has 13. The rules are very different also. The All Blacks with their haka etc are world champs in rugby while Australia has that title in rugby league. The US team in rugby LEAGUE world cup has played Fiji and Italy, and this weekend are to play Papua New Guinea. The bookmakers have your team at odds of 81 to 1 which doesn’t bode well. I watched them play Italy and there was no shortage of heart just technique. Australia has played England and France, and plays Lebanon on Saturday.
dave 2017-11-09 02:51:43
I don't know if it's that weak Grant, it made me laugh, once it sunk in. :). And good luck in your rugby world cup quest. who's next in the competition?
grant228 2017-11-08 06:41:49
Dave, it’s at this stage I insert the weak joke about the unsuccessful Irish Water Polo team that drowned its horses! Regarding our other World Cup running at the moment, it’s the rugby league world cup. The US team has bravely taken the field but the results have been similar if an Australian bunch tried playing your NFL.
dave 2017-11-07 14:15:35
If they are playing Polo I doubt they grew up in the inner city.
grant228 2017-11-02 19:38:50
Dave, your boys made the bronze medal match against England but went down 6-5 in what was reported to be an entertaining match. Argentina beat Chile 8-7 to win gold. I read your team has some professional players. I assume they’re rich boys!
dave 2017-11-02 16:40:04
Grant that's wild. I don't here about much Polo being played in the U.S., at least not at a professional level. I'm not sure the U.S. even has any pro-caliber leagues or even teams, do they?
grant228 2017-10-31 07:10:05
Bill, it was the Polo World Cup. We have World Cups galore down here at the moment with the USA playing Fiji in what other sport? On another topic, Australia has not been “big” on Halloween but I’ve been for a walk around my neighbourhood this afternoon and was surprised by the number of homes with decorations. Does every home in the US participate?

grant228 2017-10-26 18:32:57
Bill, your guys won 7-5. Think of Pretty Woman.
bill 2017-10-26 13:51:58
Dunno Grant. Um, rugby?
bill 2017-10-26 13:51:28
Hi Deb - I can't sing very well at all. Most of the songs I pick to learn have heavy guitar parts so people can recognize them without the vocals.
grant228 2017-10-23 20:44:29
Obscure trivia question of the day - in what World Cup tournament is the USA playing Australia today (Tuesday) in Australia?? (It is a recognised sport played by very rich people)
phonerec 2017-10-21 21:50:55
Very cool Bill, I'm impressed! Can you sing too? I mean, can you sing well, lol. Everyone can sing, not everyone can sing well. Like me, I can't carry a tune in a bucket.®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
