Re: UK Passport Photo in USA

5 years ago, I send untrimmed pics from the Walgreens UK passport picture setting. That was fine. They cut them out and sent it back to me.

This time, I went to pop the renewal in the mail for my...

Re: Missing home!!!

I'd stick it out a little longer... especially as this time of year can be rough away from home. I get homesick too so I feel for you!

Re: Passport name different to GC

Thanks Elvira. I'm glad I asked b/c I would have done it the other way around. Not thinking properly really.

Not sure if I can afford a ticket yet but trying to get organized just in case. My...

Re: Tearing down buildings in the name of progress

Yes, I always get pretty upset when I see the nicer older buildings torn down. Recently our nearest city was due to tear down a lovely Victorian 3 storey home to replace it with parking lot. Someone...

Re: Smelly water query

Oh me too!

My well water is dark dark orange & stinks to high heaven. It's just the nastiest thing ever.

Re: UKC marrying USC - any advice appreciated!

Has the law changed in recent years? Not too long ago, name on birth certificate did not give parental responsibility. Only marriage to the mother or the courts could give PR to the father.

Re: (Yes another) England To Chicago

Yes, that's what I meant. It was pending & if they denied, then I'd be back to square one but it wouldn't be an overstay because they permitted me to stay while awaiting the decision. Like I said...

Re: (Yes another) England To Chicago

I'm not sure, just going by my experience. A few weeks before we go married I met with my atty to work out the best options. Her answer was that as long as both the marriage and application for AOS...

Re: (Yes another) England To Chicago

When I did it, I was told no, it wouldn't be an classed as an overstay as I was in "pending" status. But that's just what I was told - I do not know the official answer.

Re: (Yes another) England To Chicago

Agree with that. If you don't need to go back to the UK, get that attorney and travel if you have to for a good one. I came on the VWP and made a similar decision (without the little package though)....

Re: Getting my American son a British passport

I dunno. That doesn't make it very pricey though. Isn't that similar getting a copy of your birth certificate or US citizenship certificate? For example, my DD is on my naturalization application...

Re: Interesting rumours about Sarah Palin

The joy of being outside? Being with friends? Waiting in the freezing cold?

Re: Interesting rumours about Sarah Palin

Nope, being a hunter doesn't make them bad, nor being a farmer.
My DH was raised on a hog farm with their own slaughterhouse. Next year we plan to raise one that will end up on our table. I am not...

Re: Interesting rumours about Sarah Palin

Re: Interesting rumours about Sarah Palin

Personally I have no issue with people who hunt for food. It's hunting for fun I find a bit sickening. I just can't get my head around what's remotely sporting about it. So I tend to think of the...
