Default New Kid On The Block!

Hi All,

Just wanted to announce my arrival into your midst

I'm originally from Liverpool, and, I'm now in Dubuque, Iowa.....which is about 180 miles NW of Chicago. Been here for close on 10 years, having married a delightful American Girl, in 1996.

Just celebrated my 40th on the 13th.

As for work, I drive a Tour Bus, so, I get around a bit....even a few places where some British Ex-Pat members now reside.

Regards To All.

Jim.

Welcome.

I worked ten years as a coach driver in the Netherlands. Wonder what it's like in the US as I'll be moving to Texas within a couple of months.

Hiya! Welcome to BE where British humo(u)r rules!

You might want to brace yourself for comments like, "I get around a bit"...

Hi there Jim. Welcome.

So I'd be one of the people you'd drive around every now and again. Not been on a coach for a while though. Probably 30 years ago when I went on a school trip to Sherwood Forest Not one of your industries best customers but a customer all the same. And remember, the customer is always right

See there's always a point to every post.
