Re: To those who've made the move -- what are the biggest pros and cons?

Pros? We were able to afford a bigger house AND plot of land, outside a nicer village, than I could have ever hoped for back in Blighty.
We've found excellent cultural opportunities in one...

Re: Home and garden projects

Raccoon?

Around us, it would be raccoon or groundhog.... They seem to like odd things like banana skins, eggshells, etc.

Red face Re: Anyone done N600K recently?

Thank you for this information, Newacct! I stand corrected...definitively.

Good to know that any time the USC parent or grandparent spends in the US--under ANY immigration status--will count...

Re: Anyone done N600K recently?

Hi again, lonelissy - I can't help with your second question, but as far as your first question goes, I've always understood that the qualifying physical presence years must be years when the parent...

Re: Anyone done N600K recently?

RebeccaS, thank you so much for posting your success story! It's wonderful to hear that your daughter is now a full-fledged US citizen. And that the whole process took only 6-7 (?) months after...

Re: Hurricane Florence - South Carolinas

According to the newspaper link below, flooding is still happening in North & South Carolina. Sections of major roads are impassable, so people are being asked NOT to travel almost anywhere. 11K...

Re: Upsides of turning 65

Wow, this sounds like something I couldn't do full time at my age. I had to cut back from 5 days a week to 4 when I was teaching in my mid-50s (that was before I gave it up completely & switched...

Re: Upsides of turning 65

Yes, I agree. I've almost always worked somewhat active jobs, though no heavy lifting. Schoolteaching kept me hopping :lol: and I also did some home health care work when the teaching got too crazy...

Re: Lazy Labor or Labour Day to everyone!

Thanks for the thought, Lizzyq. Why can't some of those stormclouds passing by (sometimes within miles) all around us actually unload their H2O? :( I'm extremely tired of hand watering.

Re: Lazy Labor or Labour Day to everyone!

I just corrected my original post. Eastern CT (the section far from NYC & environs) is still in dreadful drought.

Our lawn and my gardens were all looking great until July hit. Then despite a few...

Re: Lazy Labor or Labour Day to everyone!

Actually southeastern MA, much of RI, and western parts of CT are in drought conditions. We had an exceptionally wet spring & early summer, but the rains have dried up in the last two months. We...

Ours has been brilliant! Family arrived en masse Friday evening but has sadly now departed to (vain hope!) get ahead of the traffic returning to the city.... But we had an excellent time, and the...

Glad to hear it's all resolved now. I hate it when a friendship gets... what shall I call it? …compromised?... by some issue like this.

Re: Upsides of turning 65

I think I owe you an apology, Sugarmooma, for turning your light-hearted celebration of some of the upsides of turning 65 in a somewhat somber direction. My musing that the school tax exemption for...

Re: Upsides of turning 65

So all over-65s can avoid paying school taxes? I'm not sure why, but this strikes me as very strange....:confused:

Re: Upsides of turning 65

Many states & municipalities have some form of homestead exemption. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homestead_exemption

Re: Anyone done N600K recently?

I would not send in transcripts of your school years -- your US residence years are not sufficient, and it's your USC parent's US residence years that are the important ones. You'll fill out Part 4...

Re: Anyone done N600K recently?

Zaineb, if you don't have at least 2 years of US residence AFTER age 14, you are correct that you can't pass on American citizenship automatically to your non-US born children. It sounds like your...

When we returned from our trip to Blighty, I found my two cherry tomato plants had disappeared from their pots--either eaten or just didn't like the spot I tried this year. But the lettuce which had...
