Try cutting and pasting the link Grant

Dave, I tried to connect but was told "something went wrong". It may be only northern hemisphere friendly.

Great new song - Empty Cup- from my niece Chey Halliwill and Friends.

And for your quiz on Alexander the Great. Very nice!
 
bill 2015-04-17 23:27:58
Torchwood, thanks for the quiz on the t.v show Andromeda! How you have plenty more coming!

A big pearly white teethy grin, a deep voice and rubbing elbows with "the stars" is much more important than smarts and experience, right?!

Condi needs to but raise her hand and I think people would back her right away. I'm still hoping. Maybe she's playing possum, as Jed Clampett used to say...
 
grant228 2015-04-17 04:19:59
Bill, surely you weren't expecting talent to be the sole criterion? Likeability, folksiness are more important when what is being run is basically a popularity contest. I like your suggestion of Ms Rice. She appears calm and decisive. It's a shame she's not on many radars
 
bill 2015-04-13 10:18:59
Well Grant, don't look at me, as I voted for Romney in 2012. I thought he was the most qualified candidate that America has EVER had run for president.

Personally, I'd like to see Conoleeza Rice run for president in 2016 but there seems to be no movement from her in that regard.

You would think in a land of over 300 million people you Americans would manage to get a leader who wasn't related to somebody who's already had the job? Fancy having to choose between a Bush and a Clinton! Surely you've one or two other capable people who don't share one of these surnames?

Bill, the B & the B is very popular down here, especially with my wife! I've never watched an entire episode, usually seeing the pained expressions on the "actors" as I arrive home from work, expecting to watch the evening news. As I'm on school holidays and was forced to watch an episode I thought it might make a good topic for a quiz. The more I read, the more laughable I realized the show is and can't believe my wife, who I regard as reasonably intelligent, watches such drivel!
 
bill 2015-04-08 14:52:35
Hey, just saw your Bold and the Beautiful quiz. Thanks very much! Didn't know that one was being broadcast "Down Under." Are you a big soap fan?
 
grant228 2015-04-05 03:01:15
Bill, your comment about ABBA is true! They were something! It's odd how one's taste changes. When they were in their prime Frida was the object of my desire but now looking at You tube clips, Agnetha gets my full attention!
 
grant228 2015-04-01 15:05:47
Bill, could I make it "as of 2015"? Glad you pointed out the discrepancy in Dave's logic with the mighty Maureen. The pic I posted was typical of what we saw of her in the jungle. 52 was a long time ago!
 
bill 2015-03-31 14:19:49
Hi Grant - love the ABBA quiz! One thing, question four may be just a bit problematic as, over time, their ranking amongst the best selling groups of all time may change. Any other question you could replace it with?

BTW, speaking of heartthrobs for American boys, those ABBA chicks were hot! :-)
 
bill 2015-03-31 13:46:18
Schwing! PeopleQuiz says she's 58 now.
 
dave 2015-03-30 21:39:41
This is Maureen McCormick at 52 according to her Wikepedia page
 
 
grant228 2015-03-25 06:03:31
Dave, I wouldn't say "young" when you look at the pic below. Being stuck in the jungle away from the comforts of home like make-up would be a test for anyone.
 
 
dave 2015-03-25 05:13:48
Grant, I was just looking at her Wikipedia page and pics. It's amazing how young she still looks.
 
grant228 2015-03-25 03:44:44
Bill, not just American boys. I'm sure lots of Aussies shared your fantasy, hence she was very popular on the celebrity show. The thing I liked about her was she has aged well without resorting to botox, fillers or face lifts. One could tell she was a mature woman whose face reflected she had a story to tell.
 
bill 2015-03-24 15:26:36
Hey, Maureen McC was my dream girl when I was a kid! Perhaps she was for every other American boy as well. I've heard about some of her heavy life experiences.
 
grant228 2015-03-22 03:28:56
Bill, I'm sorry I've impugned the reputation of these fine, outstanding people who selfless commitment to improve the lot of the general population is beyond reproach. I'm sure they pay their way wherever they go and contribute most of the allowances they receive to the needy. On less controversial matters, for all the Brady Bunch fans out there, down here we've just finished an Australian series of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here with Maureen McC as one of the stars. She appeared to be an interesting lady with some heavy life experiences.
 
bill 2015-03-20 10:17:27
Serfs like us have no need for such information, right Grant?!
 
grant228 2015-03-18 15:11:27
Thanks, Bill. There weren't many who weren't and we sanctify and santitize their crimes with this fawning and adulation of their line. I notice your nation is hosting Chuck and Camilla at the moment. At least your people can look them in the eye when you met them. None of this bowing and scraping of the colonies. I've often wondered who pays for their tours of foreign lands - them or the host country's gullible taxpayers?
 
bill 2015-03-18 09:08:44
Alexander was a bloodthirsty king!
 
grant228 2015-03-17 15:06:04
Bill, you've stumped me! I can't work out the cryptic nature of your comment?
 
bill 2015-03-16 20:20:55
Right! Can you say Alexander the Great?!

 
grant228 2015-03-14 07:00:26
Bill, your insert below sums up my feelings! Beautifully said. In reality, the kings of long ago got to wear their king hat because they were more ruthless, bloodthirsty and cunning than their competition. I wouldn't mind if the present had proved themselves but this current system based on a genetic lottery is a farce. When you said you hope it won't take hold in the states, I've noticed some of your countrymen and women tend to fall over themselves in their desire to be seen with visiting "royals".
 
bill 2015-03-13 23:18:06
I hope so for your sake, Grant! I know I wouldn't like any of that hokey pokey nonsense going on here in the states!

Do you remember Monty Python's Holy Grail? At the beginning, there were a couple of peasants wallowing in the mud. "King" Arthur came by claiming himself as King of the Britons. The dialogue went just like this:

King Arthur: I am your king.
Peasant Woman: Well, I didn't vote for you.
King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.
Peasant Woman: Well, how'd you become king, then?
[Angelic music plays... ]
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king.
Dennis the Peasant: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis the Peasant: You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
Arthur: Shut up
Dennis the Peasant: I mean, if I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!
Arthur: [grabs Dennis] Shut up! Will you shut up?!
Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!
Arthur: [shakes Dennis] Shut up!
Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I'm being repressed!
Arthur: Bloody Peasant!
Dennis: Ooh, what a giveaway!


Hilarious! I couldn't have said it better myself!
 
 
grant228 2015-03-12 15:07:17
They're welcome to her! I remind myself nothing lasts forever. I'm pretty sure I'll live long enough to see my compatriots wake up and declare us a republic.
 
bill 2015-03-11 22:30:45
Great day in the morning! That would be an upset! Well, they still have the queen. Knew you'd love that. Ha ha ha!!!
