Re: B1 denied--> dilemma

It was 1997-1998 so a little longer than 10 years.

I wonder whether BUNAC now deal with visas for internships. Might be worth the OP contacting them. There must be some mechanism. The CIEE website...

Re: Experiences/recommendations - watching IPlayer/4OD etc

Thanks. But that's not the problem I'm having. It's just very slow (although does sometimes come on just fine). I'm afraid I don't understand the rest of your answer (apart from the youtube bit). I'm...

Re: Tipping UK Shipment Packing Crew??

Hmmm in the UK I'd say not. We didn't but then we were paying for the packing (my husband's employer was) so it didn't occur to us to hand over any money at all. Tipping for things like that isn't...

Re: driving in maryland

Would that include fully comprehensive cover or just limited liability? We have the same issue in a few months time. I guess I should call our broker and ask their advice.

Experiences/recommendations - watching IPlayer/4OD etc

We moved here last month and as soon as we had our cable service set up I looked into subscribing to a UK VPN service so we could watch things on the BBC Iplayer etc. We've had one for a month now...

Getting money in place to buy a car

We are moving in a few months & will need to buy a car fairly quickly after arrival. I'm reluctant to use a UK credit card given fees etc but we won't have our US bank account up and running and the...

Re: Anyone with experience of living dairy free in the US?

Thanks.

Lactose free isn't the same as dairy free. But soya products are of course dairy free. The milk alternative isn't the problem. I was thinking more of yoghurts, deserts etc

Re: DC or Baltimore?

I'd also say DC over Baltimore any day.

This has probably been done before but I'm new on here and am trying to establish what the exact rules are on child car safety seats.
