Re: The smell of lay-offs in the air ...

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

Nor have I. I gave a larger tip than normal to my hairdresser for my last appointment, but have never tipped my mailman, garbage man, etc.

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: Room Temp
