    • I really enjoyed the last quiz as well Graham however it seems that only you and myself would like another quiz as a previous topic on this more or less disintegrated due to lack of interest. I would like to mention to everyone that the quiz is a lot of fun and I am sure many of you would enjoy it and Mrs. Chester whom conducted the last quiz did so with ease, humour, intelligence and style. It would be nice to have another quiz in the near future and to also have a large turnout(no excuses accepted) ;)

    • hi chance

      am interested all depends on time and day as only early sat and sun mornings suit me any other time sorry will have to miss ( this is my time not yours) and yes i do know you lot are on summer time now (so you are 1 hr earlier so instead of 10hrs in front you are 9)

      cheers smokey

    • Well, as I stated previously, we're smack in the middle of softball (14 year old daughter) and soccer ( 7 year old grandson), plus trying to wind up the end of the school year by the middle of June. After that, I could probably pull it off. Of course, it is a little difficult to be in front of the computer in the middle of a Saturday, which is when it would be here for an evening in the UK and early morning down under :rolleyes: .

      Maybe Arthur could be quiz master! I think he would be awesome! (No pressure here, my friend, just a suggestion :) ).

      So that's all I have to add to this at this time!

    • Hi Gang

      I think that I can be available possibly mid May not sure about time schedules a saturday or sunday mid day would suit me but which would probably make it about eight am morning in US I don't know how that fits in for Australia but any time band between mid day to early evening I'll be available.

      Let me know your thoughts and i'll work out soe dates.

    • Hi Smokey, Chance Robbie and Mr and Mrs Chester

      If I say 11am our time that should make it 8pm your time and if I remember it right when I was in Orlando that puts the US five hours behind UK, say about six am. I'm hopeless when it comes to arithmatic but I want to be as flexible as posible so what do the rest think about a late morning (or early morning in some cases) start

    • Hi all,

      :D That's one. welcome aboard :D

      <_< I realise that saturday mid day is a little unusual :o but you'll only be doing silly things instead like sleeping or shopping instead so whose next. Its also a great excuse for some of the newer brits to get acquainted with the board
      every one - but everyone is welcome. ...........

    • Robbie,

      All countries south of the equator are going into their cold season, as the rest of the countries north of the equator are going into their hot season. You might call it a flip flop of seasons between the two. In other words, smokey is going into the what we call winter season. She is in need of heaters right now, while we are getting ready to turn on the A/C. :lol:

      Stay warm smokey, I have warm thoughts of you, young lady. ;)

      Cheers, Hondo B)

    • Here's another difference I've heard between above and below the equator - north of the equator, water flows in a counter clock-wise direction down the drain, and south of the equator it swirls clock-wise (can you verify that, smokey?).

      Now to get back to the topic at hand, noon UK time would be 5 AM our time (now that we're into Daylight Savings Time). That would work much better on a Saturday morning, as on Sunday mornings we are getting ready for church, and it's just too hectic. The Mrs. and I would be quite willing to get up early on a Saturday morning to join you folks. And the Mrs. would gladly defer to Arthur as quiz master, as putting the questions together for her is time consuming, and this is a particularly busy time of year for her.

    • Hi :o

      That's Three. I firmly believe that we must be adaptable and consider the thoughts of our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, I cannott see for the Brits that a midday sessions awkward when a night time session means Smokey waiting until 4am and the Us at god knows what time.

      I think we could be on here.

      At the same time as Chester once reminded me the board does not only comprise Brits Americans and Aussies so as well as these folk lets also hear from the Italians, German, French Dutch and all our European cousins and make it truly international..

      I'll go ahead and work out some dates and as an added extra if all participating contestants send me their favourite Duke Film I'll work out say five individual questions on that subject for each contestant with the incentive of a bonus for the other members in the unlikely event that they get their specialsit question wrong.

      So once again world :lol: Roll Up! Roll Up! :lol:

      Look forward to hearing from you all.

    • hi robbie,

      you are a little wrong in your thinking but hondo got it right we are heading into our winter season but for me anything under 20 degrees C is cold and on comes the winter pjs. we don't have summer all year round :D only stays warm in the northern terriotry mid 20's ;) .

      now chester have just gone and checked out the water down the drain hole and yes we do go clock wise must be because we're upside down didn't you know we walk around on our hands :lol:

      and thanks hondo i will keep warm and i will have warm thoughts for you ;) or should i say i will be having cooling thoughts for you stay cool and humity free :D

      see you soon arthur and the movie i like best i don't know just yet will get back to you on that one.

      cheers to one and all
