Amen, just a relatively simple kidney stone op is going to set us back loads in costs and lost wages, with people fretting about me getting back to work ASAP so I don't lose my job -- and I've been out precisely one week. It's brutal.

Sorry to hear you have been sick, those kidney stones can be painful. Welcome to our nightmare, with all the medical costs and stuff. I sympathise and understand exactly what you are going through. When is the op?

There is a letter in our paper today, from a local Dr. He is writing about how Britain, Canada etc have much better health systems than here.
He writes about how saddened he is by people going bankrupt to pay for life saving treatment or leaving it too late because they were worried about costs.
Nothing new, I know.

I visited Aspen around 12 years ago, and the mountains are spectacular. A friend and I visited during the summer, so I have no idea what winters there are like, but I can imagine!! :D Colorado is indeed a beautiful state.

It's beautiful all year round.. The winter is very cold but sunny almost every day.. I love having 4 well defined seasons, where I come from in Spain the weather was very similar to here, not quite so much snow in the winter, but 4 proper seasons and sunny almost every day.. I really missed the sun in England..

People live very active outdoor lives here, there is a lot to do in every season, I feel like I'm living a very healthy life..if that makes sense..

Congrats on your move to CO. When you get here I am sure it will be all shiny and new for you, but when the novelty wears off, you will see the real America, and it may shock you.

Do not get sick here, we have no NHS to help you, no unemployment pay, none of the things which the UK has to offer. Life here is good, but when things go wrong it can be very hard indeed. Colorado is a beautiful state, I am sure you will enjoy it.

When do you fly out?

:):)



I don't believe the novelty will ever wear off. When I see those rockies it makes me feel good no matter what I am doing. Our friends and their family have always lived there and they feel that way also. I guess we all find our place in this world. I will enjoy it, thank you.

I understand what you mean about the NHS but I have had some awful experiences. Fortunately, we are getting some great benefits from the company that my husband is joining.

We think we will be flying out in Dec/Jan. :)

Absolutely, living the outdoor life is very healthy. Lots of good fresh mountain air. Here in Florida we live the indoor life, its too bloody hot to be outside for long, and the sun is too strong too. Have they invented Factor 100 sunscreen yet lol.
