Can you do any volunteering? I lived SE of Houston for many years. Most of my friends were made through the pet rescue organization I volunteered with.

Re: Getting a bank account!!!!

When I came back last year, I tried HSBC first and was told they couldn't help me, so I went to Lloyds and had absolutely no problem -- for account w/debit card and 500 pounds overdraft. I recently...

Re: Just to confirm....

And don't forget what it's like in July and August, when it's up in the 90s and humid and you can only go outside a few minutes before burning up and being drenched in sweat. (And the cost of the...

Re: Does the weather in the UK suck eggs & makes you yearn for sunny weather?

Yup. Who'da thunk it?! I left all my gear in the US thinking I wouldn't be using it. :(

Re: Does the weather in the UK suck eggs & makes you yearn for sunny weather?

I just got home from playing softball. It was around 50 degrees F and it rained for most of the game. Regardless, we had a blast! :p

In Texas, we'd've run for cover at the first drop of rain!...

Alfie's not the dad

Remember the story about the 12-year-old boy who had fathered a child and all the hand-wringing and hair-pulling it evoked . . . ?

Re: Doggie problem after returning

I'd get her checked out by a vet to make sure there isn't any physical reason for it. (Is she spayed?) If there's nothing physically wrong, then I suspect Dunroving's right and it's a manifestation...

Re: Car insurance when returning to the UK

I had no trouble getting car insurance, even after 30 years out of the country. In order to get the full no-claims bonus had to produce a letter from my old insurance company.

I was 54 when I came back. I had no trouble getting a job as a production editor for a major publisher. Obviously I can't speak for your field, but believe me, there are plenty of young 'uns applying...

Re: Does the weather in the UK suck eggs & makes you yearn for sunny weather?

Admittedly, I've only been back 9 months, and living in Oxfordshire, but I think the weather has been just gorgeous the entire time! There has been a variety -- rain, cold, snow, sunny, warm -- but...

Re: Does anybody leave the USA?

Hi Gambler!

I think like everyone I went through the self-doubt phase -- what could I be thinking to want to leave the US? And that stage was hard, going back and forth in my head with arguments...

Re: Does anybody leave the USA?

I came back after 30 years in the US -- mostly southeast Texas, but also 5 years in Iowa. Didn't hate it there, but was missing home, and I decided it made as much sense to return to the UK as to...
