Of course, there must be advocacy--but it yields results which are more readily applicable to the future, rather than the present. Upon reflection, It is possible that I'm thinking within a American context, rather than a Canadian one--when I should be thinking within a Canadian one. A person on the...

Hi Bumble,

I hope you have a nice rest of the evening.

I'm going to try to do some research to see if one could get a cheaper diagnosis.

Thank you. LOL....I'd kill to get a cottage on an English seacoast. I'd kill to get a cottage, period. I live in a pretty nice garden apartment in a development (what you call an "estate") in the borough of Queens. I'm not a pub person myself. The only reason why I'd go to is to taste some pub cuisi...

LOL...I don't get the reference. I wasn't trying to make fun of Norfolk. I'm an American with personal knowledge of only Greater London. I'm really curious about how the people are there.

I believe, in Anglo-Saxon days, that it was a very northern part of the Kingdom (of Wessex?)

Hi Bumble, That would have been great if you were able to move to Stratford-Upon-Avon, for obvious reasons. When I was young, I used to read about Louis Leakey with awe. It turns out that his major find at Olduvai Gorge was merely a robust australopithecine (oh well :D ). I think he mentored both Di...

What you have conveyed is classic bureaucracy. You have to be somewhat persistent--since there are many people in your shoes (as a generalization). You have to call when they don't call. There frequently is a condescending attitude exhibited by those in the bureaucracy--caused by many things--but mo...

I think you're a likeable person. I'm sorry you were bullied--one has to transcend that, though. You have the power to prove the bullies wrong. I was bullied as well. I think, alas, that the state of "bully-victim" is something of a "rite of passage" that all must go through at some time. Children a...

I tend to drink about 1-2 12 ounce cans, and 2-3 20 ounce bottles of diet soda.

Too much!

If you're in the Midwest, a "soda" is probably a seltzer; there, soda is called "pop."

What is it called in other places around the world?

I know, in the West Indies, it's known as "sweet drink."

I'm an American and I'm weird: but I like the fish-and-chips served in southwest London, by the take-away shops which sell Schwarma as well. At McDonald's in the UK, your French-fry portion really sucks; in a take-away shop, they give you triple portions of chips, each chip containing a substantial ...

You seem to have an instinctual/intrinsic grasp of the material, fortunately. This will assist you during your difficult stretches. I would continue progressing toward my degree, even if I lighten the load a bit, as Dantac mentioned. College/university could be a grind at times. I'm thinking: it see...
