Re: If I could be transported anywhere now...

The Hens weekend bit probably explains why you can't remember!

I'd probably say Madrid. Or Santorini. Or Times Square. And all with my husband!

Re: Ask the Foreign Secretary

Economies of scale I guess?
At the end of the day I don't agree that it's our right to have our passports issued while we are overseas. I'm pretty sure that if they withdrew the service people...

Re: British government launches on-line registration system for Brits around the worl

That surprises me greatly, it usually seems that us Brits expect the consulate to swoop in and rescue us from much tamer situations. It must have been the odd few who's mums don't call the minute the...

Re: Gasoline Prices

Isn't that just in the beginning when you're all new with no credit or driving history? Local friends seem to pay very little for theirs (although I never had a car in the UK so what do I know!)

Re: Need some advice about this situation

Nobody seems to mind when blokes are selling illegally imported fags in the boozer these days. Why not get the Zippos out there at the same time!

Re: Effect and Affect

Isn't that what I wrote? That the effect of an event is what affects you?

Re: Need some advice about this situation

Don't forget that lying on a customs form is an offence at this end too. If Customs and Excise get wise to it on that end they will pass on the info to the US authorities.

Re: 6 months until moving back to UK... what do I need to do and when?

I believe I read somewhere recently that Minis are one of the few cars that actually appreciate in value since they are so popular yet hard to get hold of. You might want to look into what you could...

Re: what is the american equivalent of...

I think you misunderstood Robin1234's comment - he was saying that a lot of English people seem to assume that being English means they are C of E unless they claim otherwise. He wasn't saying that...

Re: British government launches on-line registration system for Brits around the worl
