Re: Drinking culture in UK these days?

Thanks for the Perth info. Not sure a move there is on the cards having researched house prices there a bit. No idea why they are so high. I was expecting Scotland outside Glasgow and Edinburgh to be...

Re: Drinking culture in UK these days?

My home town used to have quite a few army barracks in and around it, so that used to contribute to some of the problems I think (squaddie v locals etc). On a Christmas Eve after the pubs closing i...

Drinking culture in UK these days?

I have the chance of a job in Perth in Scotland. Born and raised in SE England though, and spent most of the last 25 years in the USA. When I was younger, and when I last lived in the Uk around 2002,...

Re: leaving a child behind :(

You ask not to be judged but it's impossible not to do so in a situation like this. You are sacrificing your son's happiness for your own in my eyes. And I was given to my grandparents at age 8 by my...

Re: USA vs UK healthcare - physician perspective

Crikey. Not sure where you practice or what field you're in, but I hope I never have to use your services.

Re: Retiring warm somewhere near the coast, suggestions?

The Willamette Valley cities of Oregon such as Salem, Eugene and Corvallis have a pretty temperate climate, and are only 1 to 1.5 hours from some spectacular coastline. Lots of other small towns in...

Re: Worried and feeling uncertain about moving to US? How did you deal with thes

Not a problem, not trying to have a "gotcha" moment - just something that entered my mind.

Regarding history and culture, I wish more Europeans would open their eyes to what is here in those...

What if park99 is black or another race and would feel more comfortable in a neighborhood that reflected their own background, and that neighborhood did have a higher crime rate related to shootings?...

Re: Mobile phone switch over...

Yeah my other half has had Google Fi for 2 or 3 years for $20 a month unlimited calls and texts, and just pay for what data you use, which is usually almost nothing as she just connects to wifi most...

Re: cold feet

Your kids may not get shot at school, but they will almost certainly have to go through active shooter training. This alone makes me want to return to the UK. Not sure how I'm going to explain it to...

Re: J1 Visa 2 Year Home Residency Rule USA

I was on a J1 back in the late 90's, so quite a long time ago. I seem to remember applying for the no objection letter and got it pretty easily. I don't remember having any UK govt funding though. I...

Re: Advice on what visa and if possible

That's good that he knows what he is getting into. It was a bit of an unsettling wait for me, as the application for the EB3 went through the process for so long. You don't know what some immigration...

Re: Advice on what visa and if possible

EB3 visa has been suggested. I came on an EB3 back in 2002. It took over 2 and half years for the application to grind through the process. No idea what the wait is like now, but your prospective...

Re: Florida shooting

I think the anti-government forces in Afghanistan pretty much match the government for firepower there, so that might give you an indication of the kind of society we'd end up with here in your...

Re: Florida shooting

Re: Florida shooting

Well it would be a shame to find out which firearms are considered high velocity by the observations of a radiologist after a mass shooting, so hopefully that could be worked out in a lab and...

Re: Florida shooting

My big game shooting is done with an Olympus. The results look much better on the wall than a stuffed head, and it generally can't be used to kill anyone. I'm ok with an 18th century interpretation...

Re: Florida shooting

Here is someone that sees the terrible effects of AR-15 and similar weapons up close. He has some ideas about which weapons should not be in the hands of civilians. High velocity, high capacity for...

Re: A monthly UK budget

Looks like a basic 3 bed house is at least 825 a month, and have to add council tax for family of 4. I'm presuming a provincial town in the south east, but could try somewhere else like S. Wales...

Re: A monthly UK budget

I wouldn't dream of paying 100 for internet/tv. Just the web which I think is probably 20 or 25 quid. I spend about 150 on clothes a year, if that, rather than a month, same for the wife. Kids have a...

Already posted in another thread right now in MBTTUK forum, and posted many times on BE before I'm sure, but it might be time to watch this again, even just to have a chuckle. Many nails are hit on...

Re: A monthly UK budget

Its gross salary (and just a guess at this point from job ads I've seen). I worked out the take home would be about 2265 quid a month, plus about 30 quid child benefit I think for the 2 kids. With...

Re: A monthly UK budget

Basic lifestyle. 1 used car probably at least 10 years old, using buses and trains too. Eat out twice a month, no fancy clothes (hardly ever buy any these days), no paid tv, cheapest internet. We are...
