    Seems like a nice group of people here, with a broad range of different ideas. I am looking at most of these topics from the perspective of an Expat, so I probably don't have as much skin in the game as some of you.

    Sorry we didn't stop in to say hello and welcome sooner. Outside perspective can be helpful too.

    Ah! So many expats, these days. No wonder why, either. I hope you visit us often and throw in some unique topics.

    Welcome Decus

    Do you depend on electronic bank payments from the US? Do you rely on a gov't retirement check?

    If so then all your "skin" is in the game.

    Thanks all for the warm welcome. I've been working for non-US companies for more than twenty years. I don't have those ties - so alot less "skin in the game". Emotionally is a different story - seeing how this affects family back home.
