OK, Canman80, I can understand your enthusiasm. BUT, I know people who have taken the big step, severed their links with home and lived to regret it. You really, really do need to live here TEMPORARILY until you are completely convinced you want it to be permanent. There are enormous differences in the culture, politics, taxes, laws, language, etc, etc from the UK and USA. I live here for the maximum permitted (183 days a year), absolutely love it, but would never consider severing my ties with the UK. You could get tired of permanent springtime and carne con papas (beef stew with potatoes)!
