Re: Let's talk Dentistry- which country does it better?

They've always seemed about the same to me - I've been in NY for 8 years now and see as many mangled American mouths as I saw in the UK

It's a tired old joke about the state of British teeth so I...

Re: Looking at moving to the USA

You could also look at J1 visas for the US - when you graduate you can take up a training placement for 18 months and they're relatively easy to get, possibly even easier if your girlfriend's father...

Re: Looking at moving to the USA

Re: Strange RFE?

Sadly they do - the results of my London medical were lost and I had to get another done in the US at my expense. Annoying but not much I could do but get it done again.

Glad to hear you've made...

Re: Shipping pets Europe to Texas

A majority of people disagreeing with someone isn't automatically 'ganging up'.

She may well be within the rules, but when someone suggests not feeding a baby and imagines they're making a...

Re: What's your LEAST favorite thing about the US?

tuxedocat, robin1234 - fascinating replies, thanks. And they both sum up my main frustration more succinctly than my previous post did; American history is far more fascinating when the grey areas...

Re: What's your LEAST favorite thing about the US?

Leader of the Free World never bothered me too much - I'd agree with you gradboy that it makes a general sort of sense, or did until the 1990s as you said.

Re: What's your LEAST favorite thing about the US?

The bit in bold is the key here and reminds me of my main grumble with the US (as in you reminded me, not that I'm directing this moan at you) - the way so much gets brushed under the carpet so the...

Re: UK Nova closing down!!!!!!

That's annoying - I thought (well, desperately hoped) they might be able to slip under the radar what with their 'no DVD content' rule.

Bugger. I guess thebox is next.

Re: What's your LEAST favorite thing about the US?

For example, if most knew and accepted that...

Re: What's your LEAST favorite thing about the US?

Yes - talking to his childhood surgery could be a good idea.

In a similar situation I spoke to my childhood surgery and they told me to come in that same afternoon. In fact, as some of my...

Re: British citizen living abroad? Non-EEA spouse? This may affect you!
