Re: UK Foods in the US Share your finds!

Thank you - my daughter lives outside DC so I'll have to send her to look.

Ha! Isn't that always the way? You can't get whatever it is, so then you (or rather I) want it.

Re: UK Foods in the US Share your finds!

I don't much care for them, so I haven't purchased them, but I have seen them in my local Indian grocer. They also sell Enos for when you overindulge on the Bourbons. It might be worthwhile checking...

Re: I think I messed up sending C1 to Washington

I thought you could call a UK number. I know it's not cheap, but it's on the Embassy website. http://ukinusa.fco.gov.uk/en/help-for-british-nationals/passports/how-to-apply/usa

Re: I think I messed up sending C1 to Washington

Incidentally, FYI my application arrived at the embassy on the 14th and I received my new passport today, the 23rd, which is a pretty fast turnaround to my mind. I didn't ask for expedited processing...

Re: How much is health cover if self employed/unemployed?

Actually, I'd go with a fairly large deductible, but unless this is going to be for a relatively short period of time (less than 5 years) I'd be inclined to go with a more comprehensive policy: when...

My husband and I pay $1600 a month for Blue cross/Blue shield. We have a fair deductible $100/$500 (individual/maximum per year). For reference he is 60, I'm 54 and we both have a history of cancer....

Re: I think I messed up sending C1 to Washington

You say you sent it "overnight". On that basis you should have some form of tracking number. Mind you, if it can't be delivered, it should be returned to you fairly quickly.

Having said that, I...

Re: UK Foods in the US Share your finds!

Re: Notes for Form C1 (specifically countersignatures)

So you just leave section 9 blank? Even though when you have completed Section 8 says to go to section 9?

Re: Different cities, different cars.......

It's all down to supply and demand - if you're looking at something that's in short supply then you're going to end up paying more for it. I'm not talking about new cars. The number I add my $200 is...

Two actually. Kelly blue book and/or consumer reports. If you've never tried it, then you don't know how it works. $200 profit is a reasonable amount.
