Re: What are you doing for Easter?

Re: Bank transfers

XE and Paypal are excellent suggestions - thanks. Mind you I'm off to England for a week next week so I may just write a cheque and pop into a branch while I'm there.

Re: Move to US from UK and searching for work

Re: UK Foods in the US Share your finds!

Weetabix seems to be available all over the place. Trader Joe's has it. Even my local food supermarket "Synders" has it.
