I have no idea to be honest...I am not British so not really into the whole bacon thing...

Hi all,
Not sure if I qualify as a newbie as I have not moved to KSA ? No job in KSA yet, however there may be one in Riyadh.....Mate of a mate sort of thing...Wife is a Mammographer/Radiographer, 1 year old daughter been in Australia for 6 years now, place called Rockhampton ... Think "Deliverance". Basically had enough decided if my job comes off ? So are we. Originally from Manchester and that's about it.

Find most of the posts insightful and informative.... Some of the banter is piss funny, anyway just thought I would say "hi"

Cheers
Gary
