Re: which US car is most similar to Toyota Corolla Verso?

I don't disagree and I'm certainly not saying that the other brands you listed are better. They're not. I just always considered Toyota to be a step above when it comes to quality so these slips...

Re: reasonable quality clothes?

These are not M&S prices, but I love SmartWool socks. They hold up very well, keep your feet toasty when it's chilly and not too hot when it's warm. Just remembered you're in Phoenix, so perhaps...

Re: which US car is most similar to Toyota Corolla Verso?

I used to feel as you do and always bought Toyota. However, the recent plethora of recalls for Toyota have really disappointed me. Like FatBrit, I think I'll look seriously at Subaru for a future...

Re: New without a clue

Hi Beatrix and welcome to the site! Goodness, I certainly hope you aren't too old to move abroad in your early thirties. Did you catch the recent BBC article that highlighted the percentage of...

Re: New Christmas Traditions?

Indeed! Surely some of you are going hiking? We are 2 hours north of you in red rock country but plan to do that today or tomorrow. I keep wanting to tell the locals (pssst, this is NOT cold...

Re: Christmas tipping etiquette

Re: The Duggars Expecting 20th child

While 20 kids seems crazy to me, these kids seem to have much better lives than so many kids in our society do today. They have a family who loves them and provides for them. If that wasn't the...

Re: Have I finally insulted an American about Accents

I confess that I have mistaken Australian, Kiwi, South Africa and English. In my defense, I don't speak to people from those countries on a daily basis (aside from the computer). I can tell the...

I thought they didn't anymore, do they still? Everytime I've bought a cosmetics product in the UK I can't find it in the US. UK cosmetics are good for an American girl of Scandinavian/British...

Re: Christmas Package!

Are any of you fans of items from Boots? I know it's just a drugstore chain, but as a pale girl their cosmetics I've found to be superior to anything else I can find. That's what I've stocked up on...

Re: Charleston, South Carolina

But that could always be true, right? Even if there isn't someone in Charleston that he doesn't like, that could certainly change. Is the person in Stanford someone he would have to work with all...

If you want to talk about crap that is enjoyable to watch, I find that I'm really enjoying 'Adult Swim' on Cartoon Network at night. In particular, there's a show where the stars are a milkshake, a...

Re: Father-daughter Dances

While I don't necessarily think being your Dad's date for a whole dance is creepy ... I do find it a little odd, but JG's perspective makes sense.

To me a father-daughter dance (i.e. whole dance...

Re: Father-daughter Dances

I have fond memories of dressing up as a little girl and accompanying my father (who wore a suit, I believe) to a father-daughter dance. I'm pretty sure I stood on his shoes while we danced. There...
