Re: Tell me about OBX...

Also would have to agree with the American. Spent numerous summers north of Duck on family vacation - generally anywhere Kitty Hawk north is very commercialized and busy. Although the sandy beaches...

Re: Class 2 NI abolished. What about us poor expats paying voluntary contributions?

My path to online access was through getting a written statement, and calling into the HMRC office.

The on-line statement does not give any option to submit payment - for that I use old school...

Just took a look at my on-line statement and don't see ability to pay back prior to 6 years, but do see that my arrears are now the Class 3 rate. I had been gradually paying off my arrears, but (last...

Re: British TV streaming in the US

Will be interesting to see what content it has, but sounds a bit AcornTV-ish. Doesn't mention Channel 4 or Channel 5, so already a gap.

Re: Anyone in the Raleigh area?

Moved to just outside Chapel Hill last year (was previously in CT).

Re: Good city for a digital biz in USA, similar to Bristol or Brighton

Recommend considering NC Triangle.

Having lived in Bristol and Brighton, imho Chapel Hill/Carrboro has similar feel to Brighton, Durham to Bristol...well, perhaps that's stretching it :)

Re: Airline Fuel Surcharge

Am assuming the reason to parse out the "carrier surcharge" from the core fare is to prevent more widespread use of...

Airline Fuel Surcharge
