    Good news is that it's July 4th tomorrow which means it's PARTY TIME!!!!1

    :beerchug::thrashi: :arco:


    Bad news is... I backed my truck into a fire hydrant. Then, being the sensible guy that I am tried to back it off the offending hydrant. Result: One very torn up rear bumper and one "Leaning Hydrant of Dallas" stylee hydrant. Luckily it didn't bust open and start spraying water everywhere, although I can't help but to think that it would have been kinda cool if it did, lol

    best wishes to you and your countrymen, i would give my right arm to be an american citizen, its got to be better than this hell hole we call england, which in 20 years time will probably be renamed to ' the rest of the world'

    Dudes... do you not remember? I am a UK citizen... I just work here!!! Its good, but the commute is a killer.

    July 4th is independence day... ;)

    And trust me - to be a citizen you need to give them your right arm, leg one of your balls and thats not normally enough. I worked with a guy last week who has been here 6 years and still hasn't got citizenship. They give you a permanent resident card, but thats still not enough to call yourself a US citizen. I'm trying to go through that at the moment. Not easy.

    The UK and US have similar national holiday days in number, but the general thing here is 10days vacation per year. As a UK employee, I get 28... but, this year - I get 1 day off at Xmas. 1 day, thats it!

    It's not all roses...

    i take your point fallmonk, its just when you are over there,( i know vacations are misleading ), everything is how england should be, service, manners, choice and massive open spaces to name but a few, i recall being in macys in manhattan a fews years back looking for a pair of boots size 10, the assistant a polite coloured guy came back with 5 boxes of various widths, i go to my local jjb to buy a pair of reebok classic trainers and i'm greeted with ' dunno if we've got them in mate ' and to think i was going to hand over cash to such a crettin. hope springs eternal.

    Do you really mean you want to be American citizen??
    No offence nothing against the Americans but you spose to be proud of being British??? Lol

    Know the feeling though this country is going to the dogs.
    I would like to be a Australian, German or Candian Citizen and yes we need more Bank Holidays.
