  1. When I lived in the UK I had private health insurance and I thought it was great. Back here in the states I paid a small fortune out for health insurance for my family and I remember all to well sitting in a hospital emergency room in Orange county California (hardly an area of poverty) with my 5yr old daughter who had had an accident for 6hrs thinking to myself this is worse than the NHS and Im paying for it. They had one emergency doctor on in a large city center hospital on a Saturday night.
  2. That works both ways Betty, I was talking with a lady just before Christmas whose husband was receiving cancer treatment in the UK that wasn't available in the USA. She said it was working well. Interestingly life expectancy is higher in the UK than the USA but that might be because so many Americans have no health insurance and only go to a doctor when its too late.
  3. Im a big champagne fan, these days I stretch it a bit in bucks fix/mimosa. Mrs Shergar the next day. "Who has drunk all this champagne"? Never once in the last 30yrs has she ever asked who has drunk all this orange juice!!!!!
  4. Might be a good time to remember our old friends, at this time of year and spare a minute for their friends and in particular their families that must be having a very difficult time. To them we raise the parting glass.
  5. Ed, I use a VPN from here in the states to watch British TV. Perhaps they have the same in reverse in the UK it only costs me $12 a month if you are interested in catching up with news and tv from home.
  6. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas Mahalo
  7. When I first started photographing Bears I was told that if one is stalking you, just take off your clothes and drop them on the ground the bear will stop and smell your clothes giving you the opportunity to make your escape. Unfortunately years later I found out that bears like the unwrapped ones best!
  8. Thats great to hear Mark. How do you know when it's a project that's been cancelled. Am I missing something?
  9. I have always thought that Alamy should let us know why an image was refunded if they know. Lets face it with the QC method that Alamy uses a bad image could sneak through. I would have thought if that was the case then it would be for everyones benefit to know why it was refunded.
