Hey guys, sorry for my prolonged absence but I've under the weather. Trying to avoid another bout with pneumonia to which I'm prone. Hope everyone is well! -Bill

Dave, by coincidence I was listening to the radio today and the question was asked, who said "I disagree with everything...... ". The person being asked got it right!

Grant,
You know the site used to have a quote feature when we first wrote it and every time you came to the front page you would get a random quote. Perhaps we should resurrect it. Oh and it's Evelyn Beatrice Hall
 
grant228 2017-03-24 10:31:20
Dave, thank you for the impressive response. You ought to write a quiz about quotes that have been wrongly attributed to others. e.g. I disagree with everything you say but will defend to the death your right to say it. Clue - it wasn't Voltaire.

Great job on the research Dave!! And zendyk, yeah, you and me both!!

Grant, Charles Dudley Warner is known for making the famous remark, Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it. This was quoted by Mark Twain in a lecture, and is still commonly misattributed to Twain.

Oh you guys...don't even get me started on that narcissistic creep! I saw a video of him giving a speech and he sounded like Foster Brooks! He reminds me of a petulant preschooler. The idea of someone like that being in power scares the hell out of me! I could write all night about this, but I'd rather focus on more uplifting things.
 
phonerec 2017-03-20 23:47:23
It was 92 degrees today. In March!! Nope, no climate change here!!!

Deb, we've had a controversy out here where Muslim boys at a Sydney high school refused to shake hands with their female teachers. Could Don be a closet Muslim? One thing he certainly isn't is classy. All his predecessors regardless of their ability brought a level of dignity to the role. He's as dignified as mud-wrestling. I think you have the 21st century equivalent of Caligula and it's only a matter of time before one of his loyal lieutenants sinks the dagger between the shoulder blades. (either literally or figuratively.)

I'd like to apologize to the world for our President, who I didn't vote for. He refused to shake Angela Murkel's hand. She's the Chancellor of Germany. Dear God, Jesus, and Mother Mary, what is wrong with him!!! Oh yeah, he's insane.

Grant, I think it is attributed to Mark Twain. My Aussie mate in Brisbane has had horrific summer weather this year as well. World wide climate change is happening!
 
grant228 2017-03-17 08:41:55
Dave, somebody wrote, "Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it." - or something to that effect. It sounds like a Mark Twain or WIll Rogers observation. Does anyone know who?
 
dave 2017-03-13 14:09:32
The weather is nothing like it used to be, that's for sure.
 
phonerec 2017-03-11 22:22:53
We had no snow this year, not a flake. In fact, it hit over 80 degrees several times this winter. Not normal at all. I agree Grant, it's very worrying.
 
grant228 2017-03-11 20:23:12
Cubs and Dave, in our 90 days of summer we had 205 weather records set. These ranged from the hottest summer ever in many cities to 30 days plus of 90 degree consecutive days. Very weird and worrying.
 
dave 2017-03-10 20:22:14
Wow, amazing Cubs. We've had a really mild winter here and hardly any snow, which is unusual in Michigan, though not so unusual in the last 5 years.
 
lmcubs 2017-03-10 14:46:03
Hey everyone! Thought I would give you the Pacific NW winter recap. We have had FIVE major snow/wind/ice storms since the first of December! Schools called TEN snow days (more than two is unusual). I have lived in this area my entire life, and have no memory of a worse winter. Climate change is alive and awful here!
 
dave 2017-03-10 12:06:29
Grant,
There may be many causes and the argument that there are long term cycles in weather can be made, but science indicates that releasing lots of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere causes more heat to be trapped, and that's what humans have been doing on a large scale for the last 100 years or so, so either way it's not helping, and almost certainly is affecting the temperature change shift we've seen in recent decades.
 
grant228 2017-03-08 06:50:44
Dave, such a dramatic change in 63 years must surely be a sign this is not a gradual geological change. Climate change deniers may want to resemble ostriches and thrust their heads into the sand but the mounting evidence tells us human actions are responsible for such a dramatic transformation.

Grant, No the image failed to upload. Here's a pic

We welcome all visitors to PeopleQuiz!

PeopleQuiz is a small site that is run by my partner, Dave and me, in our spare time. We’re not financially-backed by some faceless mega-conglomerate but finance most of the site out of our own pockets. As our name implies, our focus is on trivia about people! We pride ourselves in providing personal customer service to all our players and quiz authors.

There are a few features that are completely unique to PeopleQuiz!
1. PeopleQuiz is the only trivia site that links trivia quizzes to the biography of the person about which the quiz is written.
2. PeopleQuiz is the only site on the web that has BiographyQuizzes®. People love them!
3. RapidFireTrivia® – Random trivia coming at you at the speed of light! Well, not quite, but it is fast.

We give away PeopleQuiz tee shirts or baseball caps to our top point-getters each month. We also reward IPOD Shuffles to those players who write 7 Personality Quizzes (a 10-question multiple choice quiz about a single individual) in one month. Finally, we award cash prizes to our top three point-getters annually.

What’s the fastest way to gain points? Quiz writing. Submitting a published quiz to us will earn you 1,000 points. If you’re not a writer, that’s okay - we’re honored to simply have you visit our site and maybe chat in the blog on occasion.

I personally edit and publish all the quizzes submitted to our site. I love giving folks assistance in writing quizzes and pride myself on my writing abilities. So, if you’re not sure if you can write a quiz, or if you have questions about anything, just let me know and I’ll be glad to help.

Naturally, most of our quiz authors write about people or topics they like or with which they are familiar. It’s a great way to share your knowledge about most anything and leave your mark permanently at the site.

Again, welcome to our little community of friends in trivia! As one of our best players says, “it’s just plain fun!”

Or Dave, are you being subtle and inferring global warming has melted it?
 
grant228 2017-03-02 07:23:42
Dave, the photo of Muir glacier hasn't materialized. Can you repost?
 
phonerec 2017-03-01 02:44:52
It's not necessarily global warming,,,it's more like climate change. And it's happening. It's a scientific fact. It's not normal for it to be 85 degrees in mid February, yet it has been.
 
dave 2017-02-28 21:17:29
Deb, you had to know when you bought the coat it would be a warm winter. :)

Grant, the real question with global warming is, how much is mans activity affecting it and how cyclical is the current trend.
 
grant228 2017-02-28 06:47:39
Dave, I thought your president said global warming was a Chinese hoax hence we have nothing to worry about!? I've lived in my town for 25 years and the first winters here, frosts (never snow) were common. I haven't seen a frost in many years. The summers are getting longer and warmer. One only has to view the bleaching of coral reefs such as the Great Barrier to know something is not right.
 
dave 2017-02-27 19:35:53
Grant, I think Global Warming has been cited in the past as something that will bring disruptive weather with it.
 
grant228 2017-02-20 07:33:07
Bill, thanks for the explanation. I thought it strange a northern state such as Maine was blanketed in snow while Michigan was not. And, in the hottest summer on record we had reports of snow in our snowfields this weekend! Has any reason for this aberrant weather been offered?
 
phonerec 2017-02-18 22:57:20
I give myself credit for our warm weather. I bought an ankle length puffy coat, and snow boots, so of course I'm not going to be able to wear them, LOL!!
