Oh also we added a tweet button so if you use twitter it's real easy now to tweet pages you like.

Zen,
There's a new main menu item - activity - and some of the activity items have been moved there from elsewhere in the site, So the biography main menu button takes you straight to biographies now, trivia is relabeled to trivia games and contains all 3 types of our trivia games when you go there now. Admittedly it's stuff you probably wouldn't use much as a regular but for a non registered used trying to navigate the site and see what's there we think it's a little better.

Which ones, Dave? I must be out of the loop.
 
dave 2014-07-25 21:46:30
Hope you all like some of the house keeping changes we've made to the site tonight. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

Knowing they possessed some of the foibles we all have makes them more interesting. They were able to rise above their faults and show us their better sides. That's the lesson we should focus on, especially with children. Hagiography does no-one any favours.
 
bill 2014-07-23 15:20:06
Yea, I think all of them had slaves and Jefferson had kids with his slaves. News travelled slow in those days and things were kept hush hush!
 
dave 2014-07-23 13:27:28
Grant, I thoughtI had answered your previous question about the US founding fathers. The book just give you a lot of detail about Jefferson, Washington, Hamilton, and Madison mainly, and info that makes you realize they weren't perfect, didn't always have the vision we would have thought (I.e. they were wrong at times and made mistakes, surprise surprise) and weren't alalwys the nice moral guys we like to believe.
 
grant228 2014-07-21 16:04:46
Thank you, Zen. As a 12 year old I have vivid memories of that remarkable day.
 
zendyk 2014-07-21 08:28:58
Grant,they landed on the moon on the 20th, but they didn't WALK on the moon until the 21st, 6 hours later. I'm the one who posted that feature. The date and time was recorded, not in US time, but UTC time (the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time).
 
grant228 2014-07-21 04:59:58
Bill, I notice you have listed July 21 as the moon landing anniversary. On this side of the planet it was July 21 but I thought it was July 20 in the US?
 
grant228 2014-07-20 00:40:33
Zen, you didn't mention this previously! We await with eager anticipation the results.
 
zendyk 2014-07-19 14:47:55
Grant, I think the "solution" is to wait for the 700+ professional photos to be sifted through and returned to us!
 
grant228 2014-07-18 16:56:56
Well, Zen. There's only one solution. You and your daughter don the wedding gear again and get a proper photo!
 
zendyk 2014-07-18 08:07:41
Grant, so far, there has only been one photo with me in it and it's not any good. I'm waiting for the professional photos. I walked her down the aisle (at her request) since he father hasn't really been part of her life for the past 17 years. No one took a photo of that moment, it seems. We'll see.
 
grant228 2014-07-18 03:53:11
Zen, it's a lovely photo with fatherly pride shining through but where is the photo of the mother of the bride with her daughter?
 
zendyk 2014-07-17 10:10:17
My daughter with her father after the wedding. She looks so happy! It was all worth it!
 
 
grant228 2014-07-17 03:54:01
Dave, an impressive photo! Thanks for the insight. Who are the more radical founders who received the airbrushed treatment? Zen, my daughters are 29 & 25 so my wife is beginning to resemble Mrs Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. I only hope there's a similar happy ending.
 
bill 2014-07-16 21:51:33
I think 25 is a good age to get married.
 
zendyk 2014-07-16 12:37:58
Thanks, everyone, for your compliments and good wishes. Grant, my daughter is 25 and just married. I left her to make her own choices and it turned out great!
 
bill 2014-07-16 11:10:46
Hey Dave, great new picture! You're looking quite astute!
 
bill 2014-07-16 11:07:55
Hey Grant, FDR was another that came to mind but he was in the midst of the depression so a lot of folks gave him the benefit of the doubt.
 
dave 2014-07-16 09:20:37
Grant, I just finish a book titled "The Great Upheaval", by Jay Winik, and it seems that many of the U.S. founding fathers were quite polarizing and controversial figures in their own time. U.S. History has painted them in a much more positive light, for the most part.
 
dave 2014-07-16 09:18:53
Zen, That's a great looking couple.
 
grant228 2014-07-14 03:24:47
Zen. congratulations on the occasion. What is the secret of launching daughters? Having two daughters in their twenties who are not married, I'm getting worried. Bill, you've provided an interesting response. My readings of FDR made me think you may have offered his name. I've read some people in your nation still regard him as the great destroyer of U S capitalism and drive.
 
bill 2014-07-13 23:07:10
Sorry for the delayed replies this weekend but I was away at the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, MI. Probably ate a quart of sweet cherries myself and bought a couple of cherry pies (my favorite!). Just got back today. Lots of fun and great weather!
 
 
bill 2014-07-13 23:00:58
Zen, congrats to your daughter! She's a great looking gal!
 
bill 2014-07-13 22:59:55
Grant, perhaps Lyndon Johnson here in the US would be thought to be on that same wavelength. He introduced a great deal of social programs which a good deal of folks appreciated while others thought he was out of control.
 
zendyk 2014-07-13 16:01:47
Here's why I haven't posted many new quizzes lately! I'm so thrilled to see my daughter happy with her wonderful man. Now I'm EXHAUSTED.
 
 
grant228 2014-07-12 07:47:55
Bill, thanks for mentioning Gough Whitlam in today's bio birthday. He was a polarising figure with some people claiming he did extraordinary things while others argue he was a wrecker who needed to be stopped. Is there an American figure who may be described in similar terms?
 
dave 2014-07-09 11:47:02
I didn't see it but apparently they scored 4 in about a 5 minute period.
