Re: Pre-clearance negative experience

Whatever he thought, it is highly unlikely to have involved Celcius or centimeters! :rofl:

Re: How long to feel Canadian?

The loons and insurrectionists are also a minority, perhaps a larger minority, but still a tiny minority, south of the border, and similarly they don't speak for the majority of Americans.

FWIW...

Re: Another small step to becoming more American.

There are very few parts of the US where "cycling" and any form of the word "safe" (including "safer"), can be used in a sentence about riding on any road, other than perhaps a neighborhood/...

Re: Leaving US flight and passport use

The only "passport check" leaving the US is by the airline who want proof that you will be allowed into the UK when the airline takes you there. So if you have a one way ticket (note, a return ticket...

Re: Pre-clearance negative experience

Agreed 100%, and I got that right in a subsequent post on this thread, but was able to go back and correct my first post on the subject. :(

Re: Another small step to becoming more American.

You know you've truly been assimilated when you move your car as you go between shops built around the same parking lot! :rofl:

Re: UK Voting From Abroad

There were several reasons that British citizens living in the EU were affected by Brexit, but it seemed to me that the largest group of issues, diverse as they were, were related to people who were...

Re: Another small step to becoming more American.

Those, and saying "toh-may-tow", were things I adopted immediately in my new home. :) It took a couple of years to realize that I needed to say "ledduce", and "wadder" to be consistently understood....

Re: How long to feel Canadian?

Not just an impression, that is true without a shadow of a doubt, and I say that as someone with some sympathies with the protesters and Brexiteers, but the idiocy and ignorance regarding matters of...

Re: 220 devices for use of 110 volt?

I beg to differ, the power needs of an amplifier have substantial power peaks, so you need a power supply that can deliver substantially more than the nominal power rating of the amplifier.

You...

Re: 220 devices for use of 110 volt?

I can't imagine a microwave so fancy it would be worth shipping, and then faffing around with a transformer, and microwaves draw enough power that they need a transformer, not a converter. I suspect...

Re: How long to feel Canadian?

The police reports said there were 2,000. As with other things, your estimate seems a bit fanciful. .... But aside from bikering over estimates of numbers of protesters, the reality was that the...

Re: How long to feel Canadian?

I knew that the population of Canada isn't huge, but I had still imagined that there were more than 2,000 of you. :unsure:

Re: Let's talk about cars

Starter motors in stop-start vehicles are, like the batteries, also larger and more powerful than in a conventional vehicle. I find the stop-start feature intensely annoying, especially in "stop then...

Re: Pre-clearance negative experience

"Real" I would argue means legal entity. Nobody is paying property taxes or applying for a permit to Venice town council.. Neighborhoods can be ephemeral and elastic, and often seem to be dreamt up...

Re: Pre-clearance negative experience

I used Google Maps, and Google only finds Venice in Florida, because Venice, CA was merged with LA in 1926 and no longer exists as a separate municipality.

You apparently used Google to find a...

Re: Pre-clearance negative experience

AFAIK there is only one "Venice" in the US, and it's in Florida. The municipality in California is "Venice Beach", so I am inclined to side with the immigration officer and say that a clarifying...

Re: UK Marriage to USA

When shipping a small amount of stuff, if you can pack it yourself, you will likely do a lot better with a freight forwarder. I have used one a couple of times to ship things from my parents' home.

There are several variables, notably whether you choose a "remanufactured" engine, or one pulled out of a wrecked car. I had a bad experience with a remanufactured engine with the first swap, and did...

Re: Relinquishing Green Card

It probably makes sense for you to file an I407 to relinquish your green card, however the idea that it expires after 12 months is actually a myth. While online guidance appears to point that way,...
