Just joined this forum and came upon your post. I'm wondering what would possess anyone to move to the US, since I'm from here and can't stand it. Anyway I just wanted you to know that I moved from upstate New York to Atlanta Georgia 3 years ago and I believe what you are experiencing is The South. Which is not at all like The North. If you're very conservative and religious, the South will work well for you. Otherwise, make sure you're smack in the middle of an urban area to retain your sanity. Or convince your hubby to move north of the Mason-Dixon line.

What is a UKC? My boyfriend is a UK citizen looking to get out of the military and move over and possibly take up a trade job after taking courses.

You don't need to apply for the lottery (assuming you are talking about scratch off cards/games, bingo, etc). For most of them you just need to be 18 years old. For casinos you need to be 21, and show your photo ID.

I believe the poster you're replying to was referring to the US Diversity Visa lottery, not the local lotto games. There is a window for making application each year - see here for more details: Electronic Diversity Visa Lottery
Cheers,

Question Laws and new laws

Anyone living in Arizona? Those of us that have moved and retired out of the state would love any current or ongoing information about the new immigration laws in Arizona and the court action brought about by the federal government.
This is going to get interesting.

Gene,
Retired in the Philippines.

If you are white / caucasian you'll be alright 'cause those laws concern 'illegal immigrants' from south of the border.
