From my point of view, the differences seem subtle, especially as a visitor, but living here, I think there is a gulf between the UK and the US.

Re: California - departures and arrivals

They certainly aren’t leaving Monterey. Housing market is crazy here. Houses are snapped up as soon as they go up for sale. We bought ours in in August 2020 for $670k. Zillow currently has it at...

Re: Planespotting II

i went on a work trip a couple of days ago and the guy I went down with is a pilot. Flew for SkyWest and Southwest and now flies recreationally. We got talking about this. He says the big takeaway...

Re: Apple iPod 2001-2022

I can still remember the excitement of buying my first click wheel iPod years ago. The iPod died when the click wheel (classic they called it didn’t they?) stopped production as far as I’m concerned.

Re: What Happens If Return Test Is Positive

Flying back to the UK in June and with all restrictions now gone and is being out and about a load, for the first time, I’m thinking I should probably get insurance for the trip home. Still can’t...

Re: World Cup 2022

Well, that draw turned out pretty good. With the exception of Sengal getting pulled for Group A, not sure I could have picked a better draw even if I knew which balls contained which teams.

Re: Formula 1 fans?

So the night race is confirmed for Vegas from next year. Cool in that Vegas is a 50 minute flight away from me, but I’m not a huge fan of the US now having 3 races. And Vegas doesn’t exactly have...

Re: Internet - how much $$?

The only thing that would piss me off more than the ridiculous cost of internet access (or the cost of cell phone plans) is having to pay HOA fees. When we moved 16 months ago, we actually had to...

Re: Internet - how much $$?

Mine is bundled in with my tv. Just shy of $200. I’ve looked at cutting cable, but if we did, we’d either lose a lot speed and data, or we’d save only about $30 or $40 a month. 2 kids, and we do a...

Re: Pandemic Burnout

See, it’s shit like that that really boils my piss, and just adds to the burnout. I really don’t care if people chose not to get vaccinated. Their body, their choice, and they live the consequences...

Re: Pandemic Burnout

I had burnout by about March last year! It does seem to just be an endless cycle right now. I’ve pretty much stopped watching the news (especially over here where it’s just blatant propaganda for...

Re: Formula 1 fans?

Oh yeah. Whatever side of the max lewis fence you fall on, I think everybody would agree with this. First job for the new president of the FIA methinks.

Re: Formula 1 fans?

So I’d say it’s certainly unusual, maybe even questionable. In case you didn’t see the stewards response to the appeal, I’ve added it.

Re: Formula 1 fans?

And then the race would have finished behind the safety car. As a fan, there is no way I want to see that season end behind the safety car. Also the Safety Car in this lap was given, so why highly...

Re: Formula 1 fans?

Stayed off social media all day until I had watched the race. I thought it was all over with 10 laps to go and nearly went online. Thank god I didn’t. Been watching F1 for 35 years and have never...

Re: Suggestions for US location

I can whole heartedly recommend the Monterey peninsula. Good all round weather (mostly) on the coast, not as manic down here as in the city (and cheaper, although not cheap) good schools, plenty to...

Re: Planespotting II

Re: I got called 'an arrogant s**t' today..

LOL, brilliant. I do actually do that sometimes at work, but with good reason. In my job, there’s a standard that pretty much the whole world follows, except one country………..
