I'm producing a Music Festival this summer: Somerset Michigan Music Festival

It was fabulous!!! One of the best concerts I've ever been to. His voice is just as strong, and distinctive as it was in his CCR days. We had a great time, but as always, it was nice to come home. Our dog Lilly missed us, and we missed her.

Hope you enjoyed John Fogerty Deb, I'd forgotten he was from CCR.

I'm so excited! Friday night my husband and I are going to see John Fogerty in concert at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa. We're making a bit of a mini-vacation out of it and spending the night.In case you aren't a fan, Fogerty was the lead singer of Creedence Clearwater Revival, and then had a stellar solo career as well. He has a hundred great songs to choose from. I saw the setlist, and not a bad song in the bunch. Gonna be so much fun!!! To make it perfect, a good friend of mine and her husband has the 2 seats next to us, so,,,,PARTY!!!

that's pretty cool, Grant. Can you sing, "Dancing Queen?"
grant228 2018-06-05 03:31:32
I bet it's the same line trotted out to many visiting leaders. I think it might be a little more restrained for delegations from Iran and North Korea.

I should have said "closest" ally!!!
grant228 2018-06-04 10:38:51
Deb, I'm shocked! Whenever an Australian prime minister visits the US he or she is always told we are your strongest ally!
phonerec 2018-06-04 00:03:58
So. Trump has issued a tariff against Canada. Canada. Our strongest ally. I'm so ashamed.

Yes, Bill. An Australian dummy with life-size ABBA dummies in the ABBA museum in Stockholm. In addition to many excellent exhibits it also has an interactive display where visitors can sing along with band and be part of the performance. Highly recommended to all ABBA fans.

Grant, is that you with Abba?!

Bill, our day is on April 25, called Anzac Day. It commemorates the landing at Gallipoli in 1915. It is generally regarded as more important than Australia Day. We also observe Remembrance Day on November 11 but this is a minor one compared to Anzac Day.
bill 2018-05-28 13:58:57
Remembering all our fallen on this Memorial Day. Grant, when is the Aussie Memorial Day?
bill 2018-05-28 13:56:18
Hi Grant. I've heard about it on the news but really don't know the details about the Flint water situation. Everyone deserves clean water, though...
grant228 2018-05-28 09:07:55
Hello, to my Michigan friends of this website. I've just seen a Facebook post of a girl holding up a sign saying she comes from Flint, Michigan and hasn't had clean water since 2014. Can you explain the situation?

Deb, my neighbourhood experienced something last Tuesday when we had seven different door-knockers covering charities, home delivered goods to changing energy suppliers. They started at 9am and the last one knocked at 6:30pm. It must have been a team sent to deluge the area.

Charity type. I do have a number I give to people who are in need of various financial help. I just don't understand why they think the city will buy them stuff. And if they have a problem with Walmart, call them!!
grant228 2018-05-26 21:34:48
Deb, I’m intrigued! We’re these charity-type calls or is someone playing with your mind?
phonerec 2018-05-25 01:35:15
I thought you guys would appreciate some of my more unique phone calls I got this week. Will the city buy me a tree and plant it for me? No. My air conditioner broke, will the city replace it for me? No. When is the 4th of July? July 4th. Walmart ran out of Coors Light beer, can you make them get more? No. I don't have any hot water, did the city run out of hot water? I swear, I've received all of these calls. I'm taking the next 4 days off,,,,
grant228 2018-05-21 05:08:58
Deb, I wonder what the esteemed and renowned anti-monarchist Mark Twain would make of it? He wrote “There are shams and shams; there are frauds and frauds but the most transparentest one of all is the sceptered one.” He’ll be remembered long after monarchy has died a natural death.
phonerec 2018-05-21 00:43:46
No, not agog,,,but I at least do think it's kind of cool. The fact that she's biracial is a biggie. And I don't think she'll be the quiet demure person they would like. But I think Harry will support her.
grant228 2018-05-20 09:07:59
Deb, please don’t be! Is America agog now you have a member of the royal family?!
phonerec 2018-05-19 02:40:10
Now I'm afraid to talk,,,,,,,,
grant228 2018-05-18 07:01:35
One more that grates - “Thank you so much”!
grant228 2018-05-13 02:45:11
Dave, if you did it then actually is unnecessary. If you believe something then the belief is yours hence it comes from your person thus making personally superfluous.
dave 2018-05-12 13:32:47
Grant, hmm I get your point on the second one but what are the unnecessary words n the first and third (at least without more context)? I suppose "has ever" can be omitted on the third? I do see your points in your second set of examples. Perhaps it's routed in the history of the evolution of american English.
grant228 2018-05-05 04:22:14
Bill, I’m glad I have a kindred spirit. I get into trouble from my wife for my “TV rage”! Some others that rankle are - “He actually did it”, “You don’t even need to do that”, “I personally believe” and “The shark took both his legs”. I’m sad to say the disease is spreading down here.
bill 2018-05-04 12:58:19
U R right, Grant. I tried to correct myself on stuff like that. I know of a web site that has the following tab: "Add More Products." Of course, it should read simply, "Add Products." Kinda gets under my skin, eh?! George Carlin used to say, "Watch your words!"
grant228 2018-05-04 10:40:44
Dave, on an entirely different tack, I am a lover of our shared language, especially as it is spoken. As a large portion of TV in Australia comes from America I’ve noticed Americans add unnecessary words e.g. “He jumped off of the cliff”, “He paid for it with his own money.”, “This is the first time that has ever happened.” Any comments will be appreciated.®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
