Re: Dancing with the Stars - Finale

Nope, I think it's a fix. That's why Kelly stayed, she's better for the ratings.

Re: Considering move to NJ with children

How long would you be moving for? The length of time impacts on the education options in my experience.

Re: Movie.

Have you seen 'Crossing Over' with Harrison Ford? He plays an immigration agent (and pulls it off, still sexy even in the ICE jacket). Ray Liotta is the corrupt adjudication officer. I thought it was...

Re: New Mexico girls show the world how soccer should be played

Have I misunderstood your post, or are you saying that because these girls were Mormon then you 'enjoy' the fact that they were victimized?

Re: Neighbor and a tree

Re: Things you should do before you emigrate ?

I'm in Ohio where they are very difficult about everything. It was the polio and the hepatitus that caused problems. Honestly, my experience has been that if it's not done in the US (qualifications,...

Re: Things you should do before you emigrate ?

Also, put your address book on mailing labels. Then just click and print for change of address and Christmas. This has saved me hours of time over the years.

Remember to add 'UK'.

Re: Things you should do before you emigrate ?

Re: How often do you go back to visit UK relatives?

Re: Does anyone regret moving to USA

Re: Oxy Clean ads !

I think the problem is also the washing machines. Yes, I think this subject is really interesting. The top-loaders just swish washing round in warm water. Hopeless.
