Actualy, they did. When i arrived in Chicago they did ask what i will do in the States,..that is OK So i told i was visiting a friend. The immigration officer ask if it was a female, and i said yes.

Right after that, he asked my what my work was, returnticket, creditcard , wanted my fingerprints and made a picture.

Gardeners visiting female friends are dangerous i guess.

here in the uk I think we pay 20% income tax (or 40% on any income over a certian amount....can't remember how much you have to earn to pay that bracket - it's more than I earn )

and we pay 17.5%VAT (value added tax) on things we buy

certain things are vat exempt though - eg childrens clothes. But things like tampax are taxed as a luxury

Wasn't there a thing in the news a long time ago about women who were trying to get things like tampax exempt from tax?

Maybe I am wrong

Hi Peeps.

We had a wonderful day yesterday. First we went to a St Patricks parade ( with Allegra ) wich was a lot of fun. From the European side it was a typical American parade ( well,.what is typical? ) Lot`s of motorcycles, big cars and loud people. I liked it a lot,... We even got sunburned After that, lunch at salty grass ( ? ). I had a border steak, it was wonderfull I think Allegra and ABEL must have thought that i was stupid or so. I was asked to show my ID because i ordered a beer . My face went

40 years old and need to show a ID for beer I never expected that. Allegra told, everyone who looks younger than 30 need to show a id regulary Thanks for the nice words I hope i did not emberassed you.

After that, Allegra showed us some places ( like the drive trough beer barn, no ID ) and she did take us to her place. In the middle of trees I liked that place.

Thank you Allegra, we had a lot of fun I hope we manage to visit you and watch some stars .

Maybe a strange observation,...all the electric and telephone cables are above ground level, It is so ugly

After that, ABEL and I where so tired, we fall asleep on the sofa together


Today,..ABEL Sunday

St. Patricks day here is very ow key, only the pubs are full really and only the catholics from one road in beflast really go out. We also don't get sunburnt. (It's snowing here now).

Although it makes me a little sad, i had a little fun with recofirming my flight. I had to deal with a automatic telephone reply machine ( ? ) and i needed te repeat my first/last name several times,...than i did try a american accent of a certain person and it worked

Is there someone who needs a gardener ?
