I'm kind of on the fence about this one. There has been a requirement for the UK spouse to earn a particular amount of money since 2001, when I married a UK citizen. The bar was lower then (I can't remember the exact amount), but he had to show that he made enough money by giving them his P60 (detailing all of his… » 12/12/14 11:28am 12/12/14 11:28am

This looks... terrible. Sherlock, Bones and House all had the benefit of being well-groomed an conventionally attractive, and their difficulties with people could be handwaved away by saying they're on the spectrum (which isn't an excuse but it can make some behaviour more understandable). Based just on this poster,… » 12/12/14 11:05am 12/12/14 11:05am

I totally disagree with this one. Focus on results, not when you're clocking in/out. Good managers and employers don't expect you to stay late just for show. Good employees can get a crap ton of work done in eight hours, and the cultural expectation that work should be allowed to bleed over into our personal lives and… » 12/11/14 8:23am 12/11/14 8:23am

Your objection to Peter Capaldi's Scottish accent is completely nonsensical, unless you also hated all of the New Who accents (with the possible exeption of Matt Smith's). All the Classic Who doctors speak in Received Pronunciation - what used to be the media standard for actors and BBC news presenters, an accent that… » 12/09/14 1:03am 12/09/14 1:03am

I don't know why everyone's giving you a hard time about this - I agree it would be great if they offered a better veggie selection. Restaurants in the UK (including fast food chains) manage to offer decent veggie options and the country hasn't crumbled. Every time I go back to midwestern American where I grew up I… » 12/06/14 10:37pm 12/06/14 10:37pm

Do you have any veggie stock you can heat up? Or peppermint tea or a piece of ginger that you can boil and make into tea? Peppermint and ginger are both great home remedies to soothe stomach distress. The veg stock is good for rehydrating (hot and salty), and chicken stock works too. » 12/06/14 6:01pm 12/06/14 6:01pm

Oh yeah, this. My husband died from cancer and along the way there was lots of terrible 'advice'. As it happens, we were juicing, but for medical reasons - he had more than half his large bowel removed so had to be on a low fibre diet while he healed. Juicing allowed him some variety (otherwise it was veggie stock and… » 12/05/14 4:27pm 12/05/14 4:27pm

I find that this is true for me. I get fed up of trying to track every little thing so I give up and then loose track completely. So I have two accounts: one account that my salary is paid into and my direct debits (I'm in the UK, I think they're the equivalent of direct deposits in the US?) come out of, and another… » 12/05/14 6:19am 12/05/14 6:19am
