RE: Happy Independence Day

A very Happy 4th July to all our Southern neighbours! Can't wait to see those Sherman Tanks on parade! :)

RE: Baseball Weekend in London

They had to get more runs there as the Brits are used to cricket where hundreds of runs can be scored, even in the newer shortened games done over a few hours.

RE: Gaspe Trip, Quebec

Having lived in Western Canada for many years before taking my first trip to Quebec, I was really interested to see how my lack of French would work. I do speak a little French, the Parisian French I learnt at school, but I do speak it very badly, and with a Welsh accent! I experimented with my French and also pretended not to speak it at all. In every case, everyone was very accommodating and either switched to really good English or just muddled through with good humour. I had a great time there.

RE: Jeopardy records broken !

glad you learnt it good ;) ;) 'learnt' normal past tense of 'to learn' in UK, where I'm from, and from where the language we lent to you originated. :) Very interesting these variations of the English Language and how they are spoke!

RE: Jeopardy records broken !

I've watched/recorded all 30 or so episodes. Totally stunned at his knowledge.. but I have missed where he got his education. Nobody gets that smart without some formal education.. or does he? You often hear this about knowledgeable people, but I don't think it's necessarily true. I'm not gifted in any way, but I do think that most of my knowledge has been learnt since I left school. I have learnt it myself by being interested in a wide field of subjects. I'm sure that if I saw a breakdown of what I did in school, I would not be able to write down much on those topics!

RE: Did this ever happen to you?

My favourite parking ticket story was from a few years ago. A driver had applied for a personilised plate, and as well as a first choice plate, the form included a space for a second choice. He was only interested in his first choice and so wrote "No Plate" in the second choice section. Sure enough, a few weeks later he received his new plates, showing 'No Plate'. He thought it funny so stuck them on his car. Shortly after that, he started to receive parking tickets, that clearly were not his. When he contacted the DMV, he was told that when a parking ticket was written for an abandoned vehicle that was missing its plate , "No Plate" was recorded, and he was now getting all these tickets!

As the saying goes, every day is a school day! (Dunno what a dog trot house is either)

RE: Eastern US/Canada/Texas Trip Advice

The roads around Toronto include the busiest freeway in the world, or used to be until recently! Also, make sure that you have NO weapons of any kind, including mace pepper spray etc, or anything related to them like holsters, shell casings etc, that will trigger a more intensive search.

RE: Jeopardy records broken !

We have been watching this show recently, we don't normally. We don't mind him. There are so many 'thick' people around, especially on TV, it's refreshing to see someone who isn't. I've noticed that he isn't much of a car guy, he has had a few car questions wrong. There must be others, I'll see if I can spot more of his weak areas. I would imagine the producers are keeping track of this too, and when the ratings start to drop, or when the winnings budget gets low, you may see games with all his weak subjects.

RE: Jeopardy records broken !

He now has a 14 day total of $1,061,554 ! Couldn't you have waited a few hours? Now what am I going to do at 7:30 PDST? :(

RE: Highway 44 Northern California

If you want to avoid the I 5, why don't you carry on to Alturas after Susanville and take the 97 up through Klamath Falls and Bend. We've done this a few times and you end up crossing into Washington at Goldendale. We always think of this as the 'Volcano Route' as at times, if it's clear, you see dozens of volcanoes. sometimes , multiple ones at the same time.

RE: Highway 44 Northern California

We have taken Hwy 44 from Susanville many times, but turn off at Olds Station to take the 89 up to Shasta. Up to that point, There are no twisty bits. Looking at 44 beyond this point, which we have never taken, Google Maps doesn't show much in the way of curves. I could see this one and dropped down into Streetview, but again, doesn't look like much. Streetview link. Are you maybe thinking of the Road through Lassen Park itself which looks crazy! Link

RE: Comanche, British Bride and British SIL on Vancouver Island

Lonnie & Hazel. Really nice to hear from you, sorry to hear about Hazel's sister. Maybe we'll pop in to say hello sometime if we do the I40 again. I love to hear the way they mispronounce 'Hereford' on the radio as we pass through cattle country!.

RE: Is Sue T still posting those beautful pictures?

I must have always misunderstood how the forum works as I thought that if someone posts in a forum, everyone would see it? Is this not the case? Everybody can look at the thread, yes; in that regard posts are public. It might not be obvious that a particular person has posted in some random thread, though, hence the ability to follow people and be alerted to their posts in whatever threads they may happen to post in. Ok, thanks, that's what I thought. I was thinking for a moment, that there was some kind of 'Premium Level' that I didn't know about! :D

RE: Unusually good aurora tonight

Probably not tonight Josephine! This is from Spaceweather. NOAA forecasters said there was a 75% chance of a CME impact on March 23th. That means there was a 25% chance of no impact. Indeed, we're still waiting for the CME to arrive. The tardy arrival could mean that either (1) the CME missed or (2) it is moving more slowly than expected. Either way, the chance of storms is waning as March 24th aproaches.

RE: Who is laughing now ?

When I was young, my family all laughed when I told them when I grew up I wanted to be a comedian. Well , they aren't laughing now!

RE: Vancouver Island....Victoria

I just did a calculation on the cost of the ferry, based on a total of 60' and got $334 US. Probably be similar to get off the Island too. I was going to suggest you just take the car, but realise you are going to Vancouver afterwards. You will see much of Victoria in two days, just not much of the Island.

RE: Vancouver Island....Victoria

Two days? With that amount of time, you won't even see all of Victoria's sights, let alone the Island, which is bigger than some US states. You'll probably be only be able to see some of the city, with maybe s short trip to see some of the outlying sights.
