I'm really upset about his stance on Transgender people in the military. I say anyone who loves this country enough to lay their lives on the line should be able to serve.
dave 2017-07-25 17:34:32
Deb, Sorry to hear about your brother. We lost my wifes brother last year also.

Grant, I think I'm going to hold my comments on Mr. Trump for right now but I may chime in soon. :)

Bill, "hotter than blueblazes" is a term I haven't heard in years. With a colder winter down here than previous years I was hoping the world was not getting warmer but your experience would indicate the contrary. The pessimist in me says things can only get worse but the optimist says some genius will devise a method of making renewable energy more affordable and thus plentiful. Interesting times, as the Chinese say.

We hit 102 degrees here yesterday, with a heat index of 115. It's been pretty miserable. But did that stop my husband from playing golf? Nope!! Now that's what I call love of the game! Or dumb,,,not sure,,,,,
bill 2017-07-23 14:00:39
Hi Deb and Grant. How are things? It's hotter than blue blazes here - around 90. Moreover, the humidity is what makes it worse! Feels like a swamp here! But it never rains. They always say it's going to but never happens. UGH!
phonerec 2017-07-21 23:34:23
No apology needed! And I know we are the laughing stock of the world now. Once one of the most respected, now a laughing stock. It makes me sad beyond measure.
grant228 2017-07-21 02:19:18
Deb, my apology for the unintended sexism. Thank you for your response. Things are grim for anyone who believes in America's role as an exemplary nation and world leader. I also read today some extreme right wingers are happy to learn of John McCain's illness saying it is what he deserves for his less than enthusiastic support for D Trump. To think a man whose record is one of extraordinary courage, leadership and self-sacrifice should be treated like that says a lot for what passes for political debate.

I'm not one of the gentlemen, but I will say that you are right. If a Democrat had pulled this stunt impeachment proceedings would have already started. Now the special prosecutor is going to dig in to Don Sr's finances, and I bet he's sweating bullets. He flat out told Mr. Mueller not to. Follow the money,,,,,,
grant228 2017-07-16 12:31:02
All right, gentlemen. I have tried to stay clear of your political situation since the installation of Emperor Donald but the news that Don jr met with Russian officials surely begs some comment? If this had happened on the Democrat side we would have heard screaming from the roof tops. Is anyone willing to offer a comment?
phonerec 2017-07-09 18:32:40
They have lots of public displays here, but there is always somebody who breaks the law and shoots them off at their home. You can call the police on them, but to be honest, it's pretty low on their list of investigations. But now it's over, and we're back to our normal bliss.
grant228 2017-07-09 09:34:27
Deb, is it a day-long detonation of fireworks by anyone? On our national day we have fireworks but in a central location and set off by paid professionals for a set period at night. It's illegal for anyone else to do so. Never the less, dogs still experience trauma during these explosions.
phonerec 2017-07-07 15:32:02
I never thought about that! I call it "National Scare the Crap out of Your Dog Day". My Lilly HATES fireworks, so I don't indulge. It's supposedly illegal to shoot them off in the city limits of our town, but it doesn't stop rude, inconsiderate people from doing it.
bill 2017-07-07 13:43:11
I guess we just want to be different, Grant!
grant228 2017-07-06 20:37:36
Deb, it's Pedants' Corner time! Americans write the date 7/4/17 for the 4th of July but pronounce it the way Australians write it, 4/7/17. Why?
phonerec 2017-07-04 19:19:43
Happy 4th of July!!!
bill 2017-07-03 14:33:57
I'm holding my own, Deb, thank you!
grant228 2017-07-01 20:34:33
Good morning, Bill. Nice to know you are back on your feet. Dave had passed on Robert's comments which was nice of both. Regarding his claim to be a descendant of Wallace, I'm assuming he's not a direct descendant as I thought Wallace left no children? Over on the other side of the globe, we're now shivering through an unusually cold snap. It makes me wonder how "Michiganders" survive your longer and more brutal winters?
phonerec 2017-06-30 23:58:13
How are you feeling Bill?
bill 2017-06-30 22:38:32
Hi Grant, Deb, et al. Hope you all are well. Deb, I hope you enjoy your vacation!

Grant, a gentleman from Oregon, USA had some nice comments about your William Wallace quiz. He claims to be a descendant of the patriot himself!! His screen name is Robert the Wallace. I asked him to chime in at the blog and say hi. Told him you are an Aussie.
phonerec 2017-06-29 23:25:42
Most days I have a "phone call of the day". Today's was,,,"My air conditioner broke, will the city buy me a new one". "No sir, but I can give you the name and number of an agency who may be able to help you get one". "Really? The city won't just buy me one?",,,,,,nope,,,,
grant228 2017-06-29 03:38:10
Deb, as someone who's now on permanent holiday, there's a lot to be said for being in control! Not having to react, not having to be somewhere because the clock or diary say so. Enjoy resetting your body clock!
phonerec 2017-06-29 02:12:59
Agreed Grant. Now for happy news! Starting Friday at 5:00, I'm on vacation for 9 glorious days!! I plan on being a lazy slug for a few of those days. I'm so ready!!
grant228 2017-06-28 09:13:55
Deb, thank you for your candid, thoughtful response. You have echoed many concerns I have about organized religion and biblical interpretations and revisions. For people to say they believe every word in it illustrates their ignorance of the number of languages its been through and the contradictions that abound. I sometimes think reincarnation may be the way to go but overall think I have to make the most of this single trip on our planet.
phonerec 2017-06-27 23:32:40
No impertinence, good question. The God I have to talk to sometimes when I'm upset. I know he's not a slot machine, you can't just ask and get it. My therapist. When my brother was so sick last year, and my well meaning friends kept posting on Facebook "praying for complete healing", I kind of hated that. I knew it wasn't happening. He had stage 4 cancer, he was going, and did, die. So, like I said, God isn't a slot machine. And I don't know that I have faith in the Bible. How many times, from how many languages has it been translated, and nobody got it wrong? I don't think so. And I don't think I believe in Heaven or Hell. I like to think you just sleep forever. Although I don't rule out re-incarnation, but that may just be wishful thinking.
grant228 2017-06-26 02:11:22
Deb, if you'll excuse the impertinence, which god?
phonerec 2017-06-24 17:19:57
I'm a big fan of God,,,but not organized religion.
grant228 2017-06-23 20:28:59
Dave, your brother might agree with the saying - the reason a church congregation is called a flock is because they're ready to be fleeced!
dave 2017-06-20 13:41:18
Hi Guys, My brother has always had a big issue with that "churches are non-taxable" thing too. Bill, Hope your doing better now.
grant228 2017-06-18 08:24:20
Deb, none of us should be silly enough to claim an unblotted copybook. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." As a fellow animal lover, I'm with you 100%. Bill, I am sorry to learn of your continuing health issues. As we all know, without good health, life can become pretty draining. Chin up! Regarding those temperatures, considering this is the start of your summer, it could be a long, hot one. I hope you don't get those mad days we had in January.
phonerec 2017-06-17 18:01:52
Grant you can scratch the unblemished lifestyle, but I do adore animals, so I guess that would be the one. Bill, it's really hot here in Oklahoma as well. 96 degrees with a heat index of 106. By the way Bill, take care of yourself!!!®    Introduction    Privacy Policy    Conditions of Use
