Re: Flight costs to UK in August?

Try to avoid stopovers with the kids, but we were debating combining it with a vacation (i.e. time away from my parents place) - were thinking within the UK, but maybe we should do somewhere in...

Flight costs to UK in August?

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I posted here, but I still check in every few weeks or so.

Anyway, I haven't travelled to the UK in the height of summer for a long while, and I wondered what...

Re: Cars not repaired after accident

I did well out of the first car I bought when I came here. End of 2002 I bought a '99 Mazda Protege with 49000 miles on it for $5000 cash (it was a manual and I think the dealer was glad to get rid...

Re: " Americanism's " Changing the British language.

I was laughing at a friend here who said Nootella, he sent me a link to their official site which said that's how you say it; I sent him back a link to a British advert from youtube (searching...

Re: Bizarre internet connection problem

So I found the problem in the end. I had previously set up a Linksys router to provide the wireless rather than getting this directly from the Fios router. It appears that the settings may have been...

Re: Bizarre internet connection problem

Seems like the wireless may also be affected - the difference being it only seems to slow down considerably but doesn't lose the connection completely. That would make a little more sense (although...

Bizarre internet connection problem

I don't hold out much hope for answers from calling Verizon on this one, so wondered if anyone had any thoughts before we call them. We have fios and have a couple of computers connected to their...

Re: WTF?

I had just found this article which says that: http://www.temimi.org/2011/05/myth-busting-cholesterol.html but I wasn't sure about the source.

Re: WTF?

Mine was higher than that - something like 245 and 145 (or thereabouts). I eat home cooked meals, usually take my own lunch to work, both including plenty of fruit and veg. I don't drink soda at all....

Re: WTF?

I was recently told that too and I'm only 37. I eat pretty healthily (actually probably very healthily, especially when compared to a lot of people I know), and exercise 4 times a week (cycling and...

Re: Virgin Wines rant

Re: Virgin Wines rant

I've been a member of Virgin Wines since November when I had the same offer. My miles were in my account within 5 days.

While it might be fine for getting into the US, what nobody has talked about is what happens when she wants to get back in to Canada. Presumably the expired passport would help, but what is the...

Re: Classic headline, but then... what does that say she has tattooed on her arm?

You're probably right, it's actually quite sad I suppose - she must have some major issues that she should probably try to sort out.

Of course, if there's another meaning here in the US I may be...

Re: any brits near Edison, New Jersey?

I'm close by, in Highland Park (me, American wife, and 2 kids - almost 2 and almost 4). Edison covers a surprisingly large area, so you may or may not be very close.

Re: SSN needed to Buy a Car?

Unless the rules have changed (quite possible) then there is no requirement to have a SSN. I would be inclined to call the NJ MVC to clarify, they were very helpful when I went through this:

Re: SSN needed to Buy a Car?

I went through exactly this in NJ years ago. You can buy a car as long as they have proof of insurance, getting insurance in NJ in 2002 was a bit of a nightmare, but it may be easier now. I actually...

Re: Auto Insurance

I got my initial insurance while on a visa waiver visit (just before I got my visa). 3rd party insurance on a small car was about $3000 for 6 months.

Edited to add this was almost 10 years ago.
