Re: Is UK TV possible with sattelite?

I love the look of the services like UKTV Everywhere, but for now I am content with paying $5/month for UnoTelly (a smart DNS service) so I can watch BBC iPlayer on my WDTV Live box, and any other UK...

Re: Michigan has been keeping a secret...

Re: World Cup - Warning, Spoilers may be here!

Not the best panorama I've ever put together (not assisted by my camera).

Re: Brits in West Michigan / Grand Rapids?

It's what we have been discovering for the last few years since moving to GR. It's a city that has reinvented itself over the past 10-15 years.

Re: Brits in West Michigan / Grand Rapids?

Sounds good to me! We'll sort something out for January or so. Let's also have a think on this thread about where to meet. I like the idea of the great GR breweries, such as Vivant, GRBC, Founders,...

Re: Trader Joe's, Aldi and Lidl Food Stores in the USA

Living two-three hours from a Trader Joe's we have never experienced one. We looked for one in Chicago yesterday while on a short trip, and we are hooked. Aldi's cool, but Trader Joe's is...

Re: Food snob

So is going to the doctor's. And as far as affording it, it's a question of making choices. We don't have a $200/month triple play cable bill. We don't have a car. We have a PAYG mobile phone. Not...

Re: World Cup draw
