Re: Pledge of Allegiance

I teach in a middle school and the kids say the pledge every morning. I just stand respectfully and say nothing. Of course, I have a union flag hanging next to the stars and stripes so the little...

Re: Looking for tropical getaway recommendations

In 2009 we spent a week here:

Re: Just moved to Las Vegas

I discovered a new English pub down in Henderson the other week. It's called Shakespeare's and is on Eastern and Coronado Center. Fairly decent, though I think it's part of a chain.

Re: Manchester to Atlanta with Delta or Northwest?

Re: Bryce Canyon, Utah

Love the Utah Canyon country.

Re: UK qualifications/credential verification

I have been through this exact same process. I'm a teacher in Nevada, and I used ECE Inc. out of Milwaukee, WI. Basically my A-Levels were the equivalent of actual college credits, my 3 year 2:2 from...

Re: Anyone flying Northwest/Delta be prepared for the Sky Team experience...

Re: Billy May Dead

I was on an AA flight the other day and read that exact same article. I was thinking of having a look at his and Anthony "Sully" Sullivan's reality show after reading it. Guess I won't be able to now.
