Re: I just saw the Sarah Palin show

The worry is that so many people don't seem to realise what an airhead she is. She only needs to catch the stupid vote, not everybody, and there seem to be a lot of stupid people around. I wonder if...

Re: So what to do...

Very sorry to hear of your problems Ginblossom.

Like others here, I'd say stay in the US, and get your citizenship if you can last that long. You've worked hard to get here, and going back to the...

Re: The things people DO at Walmart

It's quite possible the shopper put it there while trying on clothes, and forgot it. I'm disgusted that the cleaning crews didn't find it sooner, or even the associates working the changing rooms,...

Re: Portland, Oregan

Couldn't agree more.

We got in touch with a realtor in Eugene (down the I5 from Portland) back in 2008 even though we weren't planning a move for 5 years. Then circumstances changed, prompting a...

Re: Does anyone else struggle with the diet?

My wife's system when dining out is to take a Tupperware box, and immediately put half the contents of her plate into the box before starting to eat. That way she can finish what's on her plate. She...

Re: UK Becomes More Like US

LOL exactly what occurred to me before I read your comment. I'd marry you, if we weren't married to each other already. :wub:

Re: Credit (aka new bane of my existence)

Re: Credit (aka new bane of my existence)

Re: Wanting to move to the USA

Just what I was thinking. Aren't there 49 other states available, and a huge variety of scenery other than trees even in Pennsylvania, if you don't like those.

Re: The More I read, The Scarery it Becomes :(

Savanna is probably due to give birth any day now, if the baby hasn't already been born, so spare a thought, prayer or sacrifice a goat for her depending on your particular schick.

I use N all the time, whenever I don't need the engine to be pushing the car forward, either slowing for lights ahead or stopped at lights. I put the transmission back in D when the lights go green.
