    Hello all,

    Hello from England (The Lake District to be exact).

    Always interested to know what others around the world think of life.

    I've travelled a lot in my time, including to The USA (+ most of the EU, middle and far East and Oz).

    Can I ask a favour though please: can you guys please do something about the value of the $? :eusa_pray: The price of oil is killing me ~ petrol (or gas, if you like) is currently about £1.20 per litre, or about $11 per us gallon.

    Anyhoo, hello!

    That's tough.

    Since, I am driving less but growing older, I'll trade you our gas prices for your health care system.

    And as long as I'm bargaining on behalf of my nation, I'll trade you our Congress for your Parliment, too.

    You guys can keep the crown jewels, and we'll keep our national parks system.

    Deal or no deal?

    The value of the USD helps American exporters.
    Euros will have to be more competitive through efficiency.

    Euros is a term used to refer to people that live in region of Europe.
    If I were referring to the currency used in England, I would use the term the "pound".
