Sorry I haven't been around for awhile. For the past 6 months, I've been recording an album for my daughter for her birthday. I finally finished it a few days before her birthday. Whew! It took a long time, but it was fun. Eight songs....all covers. I had some amazing musicians to accompany me, but I did all the vocals myself. This is a bucket list thing and a dream come true for me. There will be more albums in the near future. I hope to finish 2 more by December.

Well we were quietly confident but that didn't mean much against a better team! Went down 1-0, deservedly so. I hope your girls go well when they take on China.
grant228 2015-06-23 15:56:33
Bill, as they say in the classics, they're quietly confident, having dispatched a strong force like Brazil. We play the winner of Japan and the Netherlands, I think. Your game could shape as a metaphor for what's going on in the South China Sea at the moment!

Looks like the US gals beat Columbia, 2-0. Maybe I need start paying attention to this. US vs. China on Friday. Grant, how at the Aussie gals shaping up?
dave 2015-06-22 19:17:49
Columbia tonight at 8:00 Eastern Time
grant228 2015-06-22 16:21:46
Well, Dave, good luck to you and your team. Who are your opponents?
dave 2015-06-22 11:31:12
There you go Grant. Bye Bye Brazil!
bill 2015-06-21 20:59:57
It's Father's Day in the USA. Have a Happy!
grant228 2015-06-21 16:13:16
Dave, You were right! We got up 1-0 against the Samba Queens!
bill 2015-06-18 21:37:44
Guess this shows how much I follow the World Cup!
dave 2015-06-17 22:06:36
Never say never
grant228 2015-06-17 16:43:12
And Dave I've just heard our next opponents are Brazil so it looks like the end of the line! Good luck to your team!
dave 2015-06-17 06:00:28
Grant, Australia tied fifth ranked Sweden yesterday to edge them by one point and advance.
grant228 2015-06-17 03:16:22
Dave, I think the USA team is pretty strong. They have speed and class. if the Matildas don't get through, you'll have one extra supporter "rooting" for your girls!
dave 2015-06-16 22:18:05
Bill, I don't think Brazil is considered a shoe-in. They are ranked 7th. Germany, the U.S., and France are ranked 1,2, and 3 in Women's soccer currently.
bill 2015-06-16 13:03:24
Thanks Grant. I'm not a big soccer fan, but I did happen to see some of that game. Now, isn't it just a matter of penciling in Brasil as the winner?!
grant228 2015-06-14 04:58:27
Bill, I wondered if the timber coped better in colder weather? Congratulations to your soccer girls who gave the Aussie girls a lesson in the World Cup. We're hoping to scrape through to the next round. The program I use for international visits is Google maps.
bill 2015-06-13 12:21:45
Hi Grant - sorry for the delay but I have been out of town for a few days. I think the Arabic garb for women is designed to keep them cool. They are usually dressed in white to reflect the sun. After all, think about the heat in the Middle East!

Our house is made of brick as are almost all in our area. I think a lot of older houses were wood in this area; newer made of brick.

BTW, what software did you use to make your virtual visit?
grant228 2015-06-07 06:27:17
Bill, through the marvel of modern technology I've visited Dearborn and it looks a lovely, green place. I was expecting different so I decided to go deeper into Detroit and chose Hamtramck and it looks pretty much like suburbia around the world. In one of the streets I noticed some women dressed in their full-length black Arabic garb. It must keep them warm during your winter months. I think we'll rival you soon for the largest group of Moslems. For our women of Arabic descent who wear similar outfits it must get damn hot during our summer months. I also noticed all your houses are of timber construction, quite the opposite to here where most houses are now built of brick. Is there are reason for choosing this material?
bill 2015-06-05 08:54:18
Well Grant, that image has been around for a long time. It was once known as the Murder Capital of the World. What a lovely title, eh?! The race riots in the 1960s were one of the low points in the city's history.

Midtown is the nicest area in Detroit. There are several museums and quality restaurants in the area. It's also the home to Wayne State University and the College for Creative Studies, the school from which my daughter will graduate in December.

Detroit is also the Motor Capital of the World. Many of the big auto companies call this home. Henry Ford, one of the founding fathers of the automobile (then called horseless carriage), hails from Dearborn. Dearborn is also home to the Henry Ford Museum (largest auto museum in the world). Finally, Dearborn is home to the world's largest Muslim population outside of the Middle East.
grant228 2015-06-05 06:04:50
Dave, I have an image of Detroit as a grimy, souless city that makes nothing but cars. It must have some redeeming features?
dave 2015-06-04 09:03:04
Grant, not really, we are about an hour out of downtown Detroit. I think when you get down to Romulus/the Airport then you are approaching the greater Detroit urban area.
grant228 2015-06-03 16:05:37
Bill, I've recently discovered Google maps and have had a lot of fun visiting many places around the globe. Of course, I dropped into Ypsilanti to have a browse and was surprised how close you are to Detroit. I had the impression you were a rural centre. Is your town regarded as a suburb of Motown?
grant228 2015-06-02 04:01:03
Bill, we used to have the most unregulated conditions in the world. I remember coming home from clubs reeking of smoke. It pervaded everything even one's hair so much so that one's pillow the following morning smelled like an ashtray. Now smokers have become social lepers, banished to the outdoors and there are some of those outdoor places where smoking is also banned. If they want to shorten their lives, so be it, just don't shorten my life also.
bill 2015-06-01 15:56:03
Very good, Grant and thanks for the update!

BTW, I see Beijing just enacted an indoor smoking ban. Many of the states in the US have already done so. I don't typically agree with widespread bans but, in this case, I think it is necessary because it affects the health of all. What are your thoughts and are there smoking bans in Australia?
grant228 2015-05-30 16:35:45
Bill, ours is Anzac Day and is always April 25, the anniversary of our troops first involvement in battle. (Gallipoli campaign 1915). As It was the centenary this year there was a lot of recognition and community involvement. It fell on a Saturday this year so there was no public holiday which upset some.
bill 2015-05-30 15:13:50
Always a Monday!

Is there something similar in Australia, Grant and when is it?
grant228 2015-05-28 15:54:35
Is it always a Monday, thus giving a long weekend or a static date?
bill 2015-05-28 08:43:28
You know, Grant, I don't really know...
grant228 2015-05-26 06:16:16
Bill, to help an ignorant foreigner, why was this date chosen as Memorial Day?®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
