Re: Leaving the US for good after 9 years

Re: Jury Duty

I am on telephone standby from today. I phoned the number and I am at least off the hook on monday. Nice of them to pay me about 7% of what I would make if I was working. :thumbdown:

Re: Learning to drive in the US

Six minutes!

That's how long my NY state practical driving test was. I didn't really learn to drive until I took my CDL.

Frighteningly easy.:eek:

Re: Virginia Dreams??
