my earlier posting.
1.) The country is dirty. Dropping litter is a habit that has become
endemic throughout the country.
2.) Expensive, we can beat the world here, food, clothing just about
anything and we are more expensive.
3.) Environmental desert, of course we are, even my country the allegedly
beautiful Scotland. The mountains and glens shouldn't look the way they
do, what happened to the native Scots pine? Cut down for the steel mills
and to make way for sheep after the clearances. What in part replaced
them, row after row of Sitka spruce.
4.) The natives are like peoples the world over, basically a friendly
5.) Technical training, superb, both academically and technically.
Although I hold my fellow Histonetter in high regard the training here in
the UK is of the highest quality. Salaries, we really are at the bottom.
When I read of the salaries on offer in the US I cry in envy.
think I'm a total merchant of doom and gloom there are positives. We
still live in a democracy and for the majority of people the quality of
life is still good. I'm sure people from other countries must feel the
same way about their country, it's just that when I think how easy it
would be to change things for the better I weep. Weather, now don't get
me started on that theme, grey skies and rain.
