Yes. Not to be over-used, but in just such a time
grant228 2020-11-17 01:27:10
Dave, that often overused word is appropriate in this regard!
dave 2020-11-14 10:40:47
Grant, Awesome. and yes, all I can say is whew!

Dave, enough of politics. Below is a picture of the Three Sisters in Katoomba, NSW, where I have been staying the last three days. According to science, these ladies were formed about 400 million years ago which tends to put everything into perspective.

Welcome back to the planet, America! Decency wins!
dave 2020-11-06 16:54:41
We sure are
grant228 2020-11-05 19:04:58
Yes, O me of little faith who forgot about the many postal votes! I tell you what, Dave, your election is better than going to the movies! We are living through an exceptional time!
dave 2020-11-05 15:07:40
Looks like Michigan did swing to Biden. But Biden was down by 10% at around 4:30 Wednesday.
grant228 2020-11-04 05:01:51
Dave, I couldn't agree with you more. I think it was P.T. Barnum who said there's a sucker born every minute. If things don't turn out as expected, I'm sure we could squeeze you in over here once COVID dies down. I am surprised by the vote in your state. I thought it may have swung.

Grant, I was reading recently about how people often seek out evidence that supports what they believe or want to believe, and reject or ignore evidence that would refute that belief. Trump creates hsi own reality and belief system, and apparently has found plenty of followers that are more than comfortable with that approach. If one really wants to know the truth then one has to be prepared to not like it. I think the moral future of America, and its future security, are in jeopardy now more than many realize. How hard is it to get Australian citizenship? LOL
grant228 2020-10-31 10:14:30
Dave, forgive my attempt at satire but over here we get the strong impression there is a significant portion of your population for whom knowledge, inquiry, science and rational thought are viewed with suspicion, even disdain, thus an ignorant population is easier to control.
dave 2020-10-30 12:42:16
Right. cept if ther write by our fearless leders :) Actually I do think that Trump would start to ban books that were critical of him if he had that kind of power. Thankfully we still have a little division of duties in American Government.
grant228 2020-10-21 00:27:40
Dave, ya cain't be too carefull when it comes to reedin them darn danjerus things called books cos they fill ya mind full of strange learnin and crazy ideers. Good ole Uncle Adolf new what to do with that spawn of Satan!
dave 2020-10-20 16:35:07
Grant, I think that about sums up the current situation. I'm reading "Rage" by Bob Woodward now. Unbelievable stuff.
grant228 2020-10-20 11:02:38
Dave, I hope you are right. As much of what your country does affects the rest of the world, I think everyone on the planet should be allowed to vote in your election! Going by the general opinion here in the media, the reputation of the US has fallen dramatically because of the unpresidential behaviour of the incumbent. Your country's previous worldwide esteem based on integrity, intelligence, belief in the law and justice for all, towering ideals and modesty in achievement needs urgent resurrection.
dave 2020-10-19 13:58:10
Yes, no doubt this is serious felony stuff. I don't think they were seeing real clear. It seems that the rural, uneducated, anti-government crowd has been growing bolder in the Trump presidency. I wonder what that says about Trump? I think he won't be re-elected.
grant228 2020-10-13 07:40:20
Dave, saying they've been misbehaving is similar to saying Al Capone was a bit naughty. Of the assorted group below, the fellow top right would have to be a Deliverance extra!
dave 2020-10-12 00:45:11
Its's strange Grant. It's not my image of my homeland and, as we've discussed before, it's a pretty big diverse state, There does seem to have been some mis-behaving, to put it mildly.
grant228 2020-10-10 08:02:55
Dave, your lovely state is again in the news for all the wrong reasons! The faces of the accused would not be out of place in "Deliverance".
dave 2020-09-30 13:38:37
Grant, that all sounds about right, though I'd say those D's are very soft D's. I would pronounce bedder and better slightly differently though its true the t's would lean more towards the d. It's a subtle thing.
grant228 2020-09-30 11:36:39
Dave, if we pronounce "school" with a hard k sound, so we should with schedule. I remember watching a US power boat show many years ago and the announcer pronounced "buoy" as "booey". This week I also heard "era" pronounced as "air-ra". Over here we say "ear-ra" I have done some research on this topic and my source said the following words are pronounced differently in the US and here: water, bottom and better - we pronounce the t while Americans substitute a d sound i.e. boddom, warda, bedder. The classic is coffee - we say koffee while Americans say caw-fee. Pianist is another. We say peer-u-nist while Americans say pee-anist.
dave 2020-09-29 19:28:15
Grant, I'm not sure. how do you spell schedule? I'm pretty sure its pronounced differently (we pronounce skedule, english say shedule)
grant228 2020-09-24 08:03:02
Dave, I tutor a marvellous Japanese boy in English and today he wrote "license". I explained that he had used the American spelling instead of "licence" and he then asked if there are any words, spelled the same, that Americans pronounce differently to English/Australians? I wracked my brain but can't think of any. Can you provide any?
dave 2020-09-22 21:02:51
Grant, That's the word from the top! :)
grant228 2020-09-17 19:48:34
Dave, according to a prominent American politician, your pandemic is all under control with better numbers than most countries!
dave 2020-09-14 12:34:15
We'll see where it goes. Right now I'd say the pandemic has the spotlight.
grant228 2020-09-11 10:01:53
I couldn't agree more. Sadly, both our countries have leaders who are reluctant to take action on this matter.
dave 2020-09-10 12:54:57
One argument I've heard is that climate change is cyclical over long periods. My counter is that - scientifically speaking (I.e. can be proved in experiment) - putting more and more carbon in the atmosphere does/will increase the temperature, whether we are truly experiencing those effects now or not. So either way we need to quit increasing the carbon in the atmosphere.®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
