This forum has a long history, by interent standards anyway-unfortunately it has been abandoned for far too long due to real life circumstances knocking the heck out of what had been my very real desire to keep this board alive and well forever so that all of us could meet here and communicate with each other everyday.

I'm not sure that a forum like this is even needed nowadays since the advent of facebook, etc...but I hope that this once thriving BB does bring some of us back together again and that maybe some new folks will join us as well!

Re: this board...

Bob, Sir!

No apology. I know all too well, first hand, how things outside the computer may keep one busy.

Sounds as you had an indeed very enjoyable time while in USA together. Well, except for that part with the bus breaking that is.... Personally, I never liked going by bus to begin with myself. Much due to getting "car-sick" in my youth.

I hope that the UK imigration-service, or what ever its "official name" is, will grant you permanent resident status. This going back and forth between Europe and USA, is not exactly "free of charge".... Something both you and I know by now, after several times of flying across the Atlantic ocean. By how long intervalls do you have to go back to USA, in order to renew your UK-visa each time?

By the way.... As it happens, I am currently in the still early stage of planning a possible trip to UK, by autum of 2010 however. The destination within UK is however Scotland, with the areas of "Loch Lomond", "Isle Of Skye" as main goals to visit. It may be that the cheapest way to fly to Scotland however is directly to the airport of between Glasgow-Edinburgh, and not via London. But if going via London turns out to be better and/or cheaper, I will let you know. The "subject" of the Scotland-visit, is Single Malt Whisky. Out on Isle Of Skye, we (a collegue to me and I), want to visit the distillery of Talisker, together with just driving around on the island to enjoy the truly very scenic nature specifically the island of Isle Of Skye has to offer. (Have done quite some "image-research" about this). Talisker is also a single malt, which has a very high reputation in Sweden, in the Swedish "whisky-community". And personally, I keep Talisker as 1 of my favourite distillerys!

Wife says "about time" regarding my plan of travelling over to Scotland. She has been somewhat annoyed for some time now, over my steadily growing stock of single malt whisky, which has now grown to 71 seperate kinds (not counting "doubble purchases" of a few bottles), with the 72nd expected to arrive by next week, after having placed a special order for it. I do not really drink all that much, which is partly why my "stock" has managed to be this "numerous" in amount. I rather see choosing a single malt whisky, for each specific occassion, just as important as choosing "the right" whine for a dinner. If not having "the right" single malt for a specific occassion, I rather do not have one at all, instead of one which does not fully "fit the moment" tastewise. This does however, rather early during the task of creating a "presentable collection", tend to create a slight "lack of space in the cabinet". Wife has been on my case for a long time now, to go and buy a new cabinet, as where they are now is way beyond the level of "crowded".

Again, I hope that the UK imigration-department will come to their senses, and issue a "permanent resident"-status for you! This going "back and forth" in order to renew a temp visa, is just plain silly.... And if I have my way via London, I most certainly will let you know. Would very much enjoy meeting both you and Julie in person! After having known eachother for around some 8 years now, it strikes me as being about time we did, would you not say?

T G C!


Re: this board...

seems like this place has gone by the wayside. To many others have boards now, and can't seem to find the time to post.....
