Re: Another small step to becoming more American.

:lol:

As well as circling for 10 minutes to find a spot close in as opposed to parking on the far side of the lot and walking to the door.

Re: Another small step to becoming more American.

Getting into the car to go somewhere a mile or less away :o

Of course that's all in the past now, for me. On the days I go into the London office I walk about 6 miles in total.

Re: Another small step to becoming more American.

When OH lived in the PNW (before becoming my OH) he got really, really into camping year round. He never started hunting, other 5han fish for breakfast, so you are probably safe there, but he did...

Re: moving back from USA to UK - any regrets?

Didn't move back, moved on. Barely a backward glance.

New adventures, new things to do, new things to see and learn about, new experiences to have.

I was very, very ready to leave the US. I...

Re: I am just going outside and may be some time

How is it enhanced? Does it play music? Order sandwiches?

Re: UK vs US cost of living - has it balanced out for you?

I don't move in her circles. Although I was once weighed (as a child) in the scales that sit in the front of the Berry Bros shop in St James's.

I'll keep an eye out for the wine.

Re: New adventures

I've had more than one thing go to Hawaii by mistake en route from Chicago to places all over the US (but not anywhere near Hawaii).

Re: Marks and Spencers

I don't know about M&S specifically, but with respect to your card they will likely bill your card company in pounds who will then charge you in dollars at the exchange rate of their choice. I can't...

Re: Things that are easier when moving back

Was online-only a covid innovation? My son (dual citizen, holding a British passport), moved to the UK as a uni student in 2018 and he did have to go to a job centre to get his national insurance...

Re: WTF in America

I read the other day that sales of vinyl have overtaken sales of cds :blink: Records are back, even if they have things like Taylor Swift on them.

As for Mr. Seger - well, roll me away.

Re: WTF in America

Actually, pretty damn well.

Compare the gun death rates of the UK to the US. You also have to bear in mind that the cultures are completely different, as are the histories, so banning almost all...

Yes, now that there is a huge business structure in place with hefty profit being made (even if it is illegal) then those profiting from the gang and cartel activity aren't going to just want to...

Re: UK vs US cost of living - has it balanced out for you?

Thanks for the info. Do they do two separate policies for a couple, or a joint? Perhaps we would be better off with two separate policies since I'm still in good nick but OH has a thing or two?

Re: UK vs US cost of living - has it balanced out for you?

Do you mind sharing which insurance company you are using? I love the NHS service but the waiting times at the moment are quite worrying. I can put up with waiting for non-essential stuff, but if I...
