Re: Evening y'all

Welcome! Have you been filing US taxes? If not, you probably want to take a look at that first.

Re: Having seconds thoughts on USA (after 5 years in NYC)

LOL! Good luck with that apartment search. You'll get a 1 bedroom with these requirements for about $3,500.

Re: Having seconds thoughts on USA (after 5 years in NYC)

I'll throw my 2 cents in.

I lived in NYC for 4 years (in Manhattan) and completely understand all of your points. NYC is not a true reflection of the rest of the country. I moved to Northern...

Re: Flights to the UK

But you *really* should just pay for the AARP membership before using the discounts (it's only something like $16 for a year). If more people catch on to the fact that there's an exploit, the...

Re: Guns in America

Pulaski beat me to it, but you're more likely to be killed by a bad driver than gun crime. I thoroughly enjoy shooting sports and have recently started shooting clays. It's a great way to get out and...

Re: Hiring process duration?

We typically aim for a 4 week turnaround. I.e. initial contact to person in seat within 4 weeks. I think that it also depends on location and industry. The software/tech market is hot in NYC and SF,...

Re: British Airways Price Alert

Definitely agree with this. It doesn't appear to be a 'slow job' either. Service and quality have both suffered. On my last flight (Club World), I used the 'warm towel' (which was threadbare to begin...

Re: where to get British Passport Photos
