It’s ‘Ask Arthur’ time again

It’s once again time for my annual “Ask Arthur” series of posts, which I’ve been doing every December since 2012. I twice did an “Ask Arthur” series in July, but decided against it this year. This series is a chance for people to ask me nearly anything.

I try to answer whatever I’m asked, and I have no particular topics that are “off limits”, however, if I can’t answer something for whatever reason I’ll say so. So far, though, I’ve never had a question that I wouldn’t answer.

Past questions have been about me, life in New Zealand, being an expat, what I think about various topics, and so on. Many different things, many possibilities.

To ask questions, leave a comment on this post (anonymous comments are okay). Or, you can also email me your question (and you can even tell me to keep your name secret, although, why not pick a nom de question?). You can also ask questions on the AmeriNZ Facebook page.

As I always note, this idea is stolen from inspired by Roger Green’s “Ask Roger Anything” (“ARA”) posts, which he still does far more often than I do.

So, over to you: Ask your question whatever way works best for you, and I’ll do my best to answer it.

I've done his so many times, I'm not sure I have much to ask, other than that one or two I posted on FB ;-0

Oh, I thought of a few. Do you, or did you ever sing? In a choir, in a band. What music makes you cry?

What post(s) have generated the most interest? Especially note those that particularly surprised you. ("They're interested in THAT?")

OK, your reaction to the death of George Michael. The Boston Globe wrote http://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/2016/12/25/george-michael-work-had-unique-profound-effect-lgbtq-people/MMsqBx4gz3ot5xj0qtqxLK/story.html George Michael’s work had a unique, profound effect on LGBTQ people "This year has not just been a year in which our beloved celebrities have died, but it’s been a year in which LGBTQ people of a certain age have lost those who helped us come out and live authentic lives."
