Gang of Eight - Immigration Reform Bill

A very interesting piece of legislation is currently being debated in Washington.  It is one that may affect some of you? Basically 4 Democrats and 4 Republicans have got together and worked on an overhaul to our current American immigration system. It comes down to a kind of amnesty for immigrants here unofficially. How it seems to work (if passed) is any immigrant here illegally will come forward and then be put on a kind of probation for at least 10 years. During this time they will pay at least $2000 in fines and also pay taxes on income earned. The candidates would also be required to learn (American) English At the 10-13 year point they will be granted citizenship. It is obviously a lot more complex than stated here, but they are the bare facts. Some Senators have declared they will not vote to pass this bill unless control is tightened up along the Southern Border and others argue that it is rewarding lawbreakers . I can certainly see all sides, but do think that illegal immig…

TRAVEL: Helicopter ride over LA

Last year we took MICHAEL THE INTERN for a helicopter ride on his last day in LA and we are excited to have him back with us this month for the summer. Welcome back Michael.
Meanwhile this helicopter tour over LA truly is one of the most fun things you can do as a sightseer.

"We loved this - Simply one of the best things to do in LA"

Brits in LA member Mark Skinner runs a helicopter tour company that offers trips all over Orange County and LA and through the high rises in downtown. He is offering you all a 15% discount. This is an amazing thing to do especially if you have guests visiting .
Visit the website for pricing and tour routes
Take a look at our ride - apologies for shaky camera. They start at around $80, so with the Brits in LA discount that is cheaper than a cab to the airport! shame he can't drop you off!

Hi Breeps
I'm off camping tomorrow in the Peak District, Derbyshire for a family celebration for my Dad's 70th birthday. Haven't been camping since I was 11, any tips? I will definitely be shutting down my data roaming and turning on one of these great apps that allow free communication using wi-fi. Also I'm happy as Larry that chase, my preferred bank have dropped all charges for foreign transactions - Nice!
