Re: no green card lotto in UK..Why?

I thought this would apply but the taxes in West Orange were outrageous while the local high school was mediocre.

Re: Florida shooting

I find the attitude of some posters here very un-British. We had Dunblane, guns banned, and nobody gave a toss. When a Brit goes to America and falls in love with firearms it's a rejection of the...

I noticed all your negatives (apart from daycare) while visiting NYC before I moved. I previously lived in W London and most applied there too.

Re: Stuck at a cross roads

Re: Engineering student looking to move to Hawaii?

On the bright side, America (like most countries) has a real shortage of engineers and I doubt getting sponsored will be a huge challenge. The only issue would be availability of work in Hawaii.

That 47% of the voting public wanted at the helm. Just like they did Bush, Reagan etc.

Re: Should we stay (UK) or should we go (USA)

I hate the guy too, but you have to admit it takes more than an average mind to build a business empire. Takes even more to appeal to Joe Public despite that.

Re: Should we stay (UK) or should we go (USA)

Re: Should we stay (UK) or should we go (USA)

Re: Things you like about the US

That must have indeed been many years ago since flights haven't landed downtown (the old Kai Tak) since 1998. I heard you were close enough to see into people's apartments on the approach.
