Re: Does anyone here from the UK have a Florida home ?

Another option would be a motor home or travel trailer. Many great deals available for used and plenty of businesses that store when not in use. Would also give you the chance to see more of country.

Re: Does anyone here from the UK have a Florida home ?

From a practical standpoint unless very well off, may have to just chance it. Retirement age insurance would be nearly prohibitively expensive. Just be ready to return to U.K. for treatment and self...

Re: Does anyone here from the UK have a Florida home ?

Re: Snow clearing shooting PA

In reality England inadvertently sent us their best and brightest. The British ruling class had nothing going for them except being born into affluent households. How else would you explain the slow...

Re: Uber in the UK

I think the app was a good idea. If I owned the company I would cease operations in any country or state that didn’t want it. It simply will not work with hourly pay and holidays and vacations. Was...

Re: Uber in the UK

By American labor standards I think the case for independent contractor is strong. You drive your own car, you select who, when and where you choose to provide the service to. You set your own hours...

Re: Snow clearing shooting PA

I get chills just looking at how many people live in cities. Houses so close that you can barely walk between. A bad neighbor can become a lifetime pain in the ass. With our armed populace being a...
