Analysis of US gun violence

Since I've been in the US, I've known people on both sides of the emotive gun control debate. I take neither of the extreme stances. I'm familiar with firearms and I've met a few people who have no...

Re: School shooting in CT

It is incredibly easy, but my point was that the AWB did not address any problems. You could still buy semi-auto weapons, and the only difference was a missing part to satisfy the law. On top of...

Re: What Are You Reading 2012

Theodor Plievier's "Stalingrad" It's an account of the destruction of the Sixth Army at the hands of the Red Army, told from the German perspective. With snow and ice outside, it's easy to imagine...

Re: School shooting in CT

I believe that is behind the suggestion to add guards to every school. Think of the profits.

Re: School shooting in CT

Firearms licensing would be a good start, with doctors and judges having the power to revoke or suspend them.

The assault weapons ban is a dangerous distraction. Banning of guns with bayonet lugs...

Re: Reclusive expat seeks advice!

Your personal happiness and well-being is worth more than money. If you keep saving, you'll never have "enough". I've seen too many people go to an early grave or become stuck in a miserable life...

Re: Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

Merry Christmas for me. I don't mean anything by it other than "have a good time". If people want to use a different greeting, I take it in the spirit it was intended.

Re: Step parenting advice needed please

I agree with Rete. Just say it's from you and the one kid who chipped in. You don't have to mention that the others didn't want to.

Re: Why Americans have huge personal trucks

I'd have a Land Rover if I could afford one. Instead we have a little Toyota 4x4 (that actually gets used - a lot). Finding a small truck is quite a feat these days. Even the small models have grown...

Re: Texas weather rant

I remember that Thanksgiving was the last time I could swim in an outdoor pool in Texas. There are good points to living with Texas weather, but I missed my English summers and real winters too much.

Party at the pub. Maybe I'll wait to pay the tab, just in case.

Re: Halloween?

Having lived in an apartment for a couple of years, I'd almost forgotten about the trick-or-treating.
My local small-town bar has an annual party, and I'm going to make the effort as a newcomer.

Re: What is 'reasonable' for food shopping pp pw?

This is entirely reasonable. We eat well on a similar figure. We even buy organic where we feel it is necessary. We don't buy processed food, and I think that's where the big savings are.

Re: What's the most disappointing thing that's happened recently?

My attempt to start a Bonfire Night in my small town got nowhere. I suppose I'd better make the best of Halloween :frown:

Re: Fall Foliage

I did time in Texas (it felt like it) and remember the closest thing to autumn was the two-week 'leaf off' that occurs with live oaks.

Nethead - any pics from Vermont?

Fall Foliage

The aspens have already peaked in my part of Colorado, but it was a four-week festival of colour. How is the scenery in your part of the US at this time of year?

Good luck! It sounds as if you've made the right decision. Not everyone adapts so well so quickly.

Re: US Move; What Did you Miss?

10 years in, there isn't much that I miss anymore. I suppose the one thing you can't work around is the lack of shared experiences. Your history is foreign to the natives and vice versa.

Re: Romney/Obama policy comparison tool

It's all fun and games until you realise that he has over 40% in the polls.
