Dave, I wouldn't say "young" when you look at the pic below. Being stuck in the jungle away from the comforts of home like make-up would be a test for anyone.
 
 
dave 2015-03-25 05:13:48
Grant, I was just looking at her Wikipedia page and pics. It's amazing how young she still looks.
 
grant228 2015-03-25 03:44:44
Bill, not just American boys. I'm sure lots of Aussies shared your fantasy, hence she was very popular on the celebrity show. The thing I liked about her was she has aged well without resorting to botox, fillers or face lifts. One could tell she was a mature woman whose face reflected she had a story to tell.
 
bill 2015-03-24 15:26:36
Hey, Maureen McC was my dream girl when I was a kid! Perhaps she was for every other American boy as well. I've heard about some of her heavy life experiences.
 
grant228 2015-03-22 03:28:56
Bill, I'm sorry I've impugned the reputation of these fine, outstanding people who selfless commitment to improve the lot of the general population is beyond reproach. I'm sure they pay their way wherever they go and contribute most of the allowances they receive to the needy. On less controversial matters, for all the Brady Bunch fans out there, down here we've just finished an Australian series of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here with Maureen McC as one of the stars. She appeared to be an interesting lady with some heavy life experiences.

Serfs like us have no need for such information, right Grant?!
 
grant228 2015-03-18 15:11:27
Thanks, Bill. There weren't many who weren't and we sanctify and santitize their crimes with this fawning and adulation of their line. I notice your nation is hosting Chuck and Camilla at the moment. At least your people can look them in the eye when you met them. None of this bowing and scraping of the colonies. I've often wondered who pays for their tours of foreign lands - them or the host country's gullible taxpayers?

Alexander was a bloodthirsty king!
 
grant228 2015-03-17 15:06:04
Bill, you've stumped me! I can't work out the cryptic nature of your comment?
 
bill 2015-03-16 20:20:55
Right! Can you say Alexander the Great?!

 
grant228 2015-03-14 07:00:26
Bill, your insert below sums up my feelings! Beautifully said. In reality, the kings of long ago got to wear their king hat because they were more ruthless, bloodthirsty and cunning than their competition. I wouldn't mind if the present had proved themselves but this current system based on a genetic lottery is a farce. When you said you hope it won't take hold in the states, I've noticed some of your countrymen and women tend to fall over themselves in their desire to be seen with visiting "royals".
 
bill 2015-03-13 23:18:06
I hope so for your sake, Grant! I know I wouldn't like any of that hokey pokey nonsense going on here in the states!

Do you remember Monty Python's Holy Grail? At the beginning, there were a couple of peasants wallowing in the mud. "King" Arthur came by claiming himself as King of the Britons. The dialogue went just like this:

King Arthur: I am your king.
Peasant Woman: Well, I didn't vote for you.
King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.
Peasant Woman: Well, how'd you become king, then?
[Angelic music plays... ]
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king.
Dennis the Peasant: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis the Peasant: You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
Arthur: Shut up
Dennis the Peasant: I mean, if I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!
Arthur: [grabs Dennis] Shut up! Will you shut up?!
Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!
Arthur: [shakes Dennis] Shut up!
Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I'm being repressed!
Arthur: Bloody Peasant!
Dennis: Ooh, what a giveaway!


Hilarious! I couldn't have said it better myself!
 
 
grant228 2015-03-12 15:07:17
They're welcome to her! I remind myself nothing lasts forever. I'm pretty sure I'll live long enough to see my compatriots wake up and declare us a republic.
 
bill 2015-03-11 22:30:45
Great day in the morning! That would be an upset! Well, they still have the queen. Knew you'd love that. Ha ha ha!!!
 
grant228 2015-03-10 15:07:45
Speaking of the Poms, they are currently in mourning. The Cricket World Cup is being played in New Zealand and Australia and the poor old Poms have been eliminated from the competition after having been beaten by Bangladesh. The equivalent would be England beating Canada in hockey! If you know anyone from England, treat them with care.
 
grant228 2015-03-08 03:50:14
I could do a quiz on tea? cricket? bad cooking? They might pull in a few more Brits! Now we call them Poms. What's the US version?
 
bill 2015-03-06 09:00:28
Grant, thanks very much for the quiz on the Union Jack! We've been trying to add more content that will attract European visitors. Maybe this one will get linked inbound somewhere and drive some much-needed Brit traffic!
 
bill 2015-03-06 08:58:38
Greenland isn't as bad as Boston!

According to local forecasters, today is the last day of the winter season with a high temperature of below freezing. Spring is here! :-)
 
grant228 2015-03-04 05:41:56
Dave, is that a snow storm or just your average run-of-the-mill rain storm? I might have to do a quiz on Friedrich Nietzsche, the man who said "That which doesn't destroy me, strengthens me." I'm sure you tough-living Michiganites will do well!
 
dave 2015-03-02 21:10:59
We are not as bad as Boston this year but we're expecting a storm tomorrow
 
grant228 2015-03-02 04:56:29
Dave, I've been viewing scenes of Boston where I visited in September seven years ago and can't believe the areas I walked are now covered in 2 metres of snow. If Boston is like that I fear for you further inland. After our very hot summer, I'm looking forward to cooler weather, although our winter temperatures will probably be similar to your summer ones.
 
dave 2015-03-01 21:23:35
Wow what a contrast from here grant. There are ice cycles on my bird feeder that haven't melted I 4 weeks
 
grant228 2015-03-01 04:08:56
Dave, we've just experienced our hottest March 1 in eleven years. 37 C (98 F) in some parts of the state. Still humid and steamy. A relieving southerly change is cooling things as I type.
 
dave 2015-02-27 22:27:22
Grant, what is the weather currently like there?
 
bill 2015-02-27 13:19:23
I don't think so, Grant, although I've never tried it here. Too cold to go outside and try it. ha ha!
 
grant228 2015-02-27 05:33:33
Bill, I saw a video today of a policeman in Maine throwing a glass of water into the air. The water froze before it hit the ground. Amazing!! Are these the type of temperatures you're receiving?
 
bill 2015-02-25 19:41:05
Celebration for sure! :-)
 
grant228 2015-02-24 02:03:29
Is that a cause for celebration or consternation?!
 
bill 2015-02-23 09:16:33
Yes. BTW, I hear that it's going to be above freezing here this weekend!
 
grant228 2015-02-22 04:29:13
Bill, so does that mean the ice in the picture is a crust for the water rushing underneath it?
