It is the most beautiful day in England today and all is well in BM's world. I thought I would share with you the view from my window.

Not nice BM, not nice. You're killing me. I so miss the snow. Just this morning hubby asked if I wanted to go back to the States for Xmas as he has a few days off. Would love to but not to go for 5 days!!! But it was a nice offer. :) :)

Yes, the seasons in Dubai are hot, hotter and hottest. I do miss the warmth though, we have sun a plenty accompanied by minus 10 on my way to work on Friday. Thank the Lord for my 4x4.

Bora, I would go for it, there's nothing like being at home for Happy Holidays. How long are the flights from Dubai to NY?

Dubai-Toronto=13 hours
Dubai-LA=19 hours
Dubai-Vancouver=13+6 hours.

Thought about heading home with my new windfall, but for a week, not worth it when you factor in a 12 hour time diff as well. Might take Mrs. DD somewhere nice for the weekend or something.

14 hours straight into JFK. Actually you arrive the same date you leave because of the time difference, but loose a day when you come back. I guess I'll just wait until the summer and make my annual trip back home. Oh, the shopping I could do if I went during Xmas!!! Thinking of a quick one over to Thailand. I buy very little in Dubai. I hate knowing that I'm being ripped off!!! Will probably put it on my calendar for next year and spend more than 5 days there.

I'm envious of your whereabouts BM. Thanks for sharing, it's really what a white Xmas looks like. Seems that you have will have white snow long after it stops and until it disappears.

Snow is snow for about 12 hours in NY before it turns black and yellow.

Spent last year in the freeze and must have been the only person that didn't see decent snow:( Managed to 'dodge' most of it by a matter of hours.
I have decided to spend this year at 'home'/Dubai.. ouch that hurt.
Although, fingers crossed, some clouds or rain would be nice to add to the atmosphere.
Looks like a nice spot BM.

It appears that all I've achieved here is to make people yearn for their little piece of home.

@DD, My eldest was on a conference call to their office in Calgary. The fact that it had taken her 2 and a half hours to get into work in a city like Manchester caused much hilarity. Manchester has about 18 inches of snow! Please do go ahead and treat Mrs DD, she may not tell you but you will leave an inprint on her heart forever, I do love a romantic man, swoon.

@Bora. Yes, I'm very lucky to live in a National Park, it is glorious but I don't appreciate it, as you never do when beauty is on your doorstep. I've done a quick calculation and my house is about 480 years old and I still have the original kitchen! NY is a fantastic place, I've been 3 times. I first went in December 1999 and spent the weekend with my eldest daughter, with the aide of much alcohol trying to justify my divorcing her dad, weather was baltic as was my daughters mood. Got there in the end, second time was December 2001, a very sad visit indeed. I went with some friends from work, we had an Apple Greeters tour and he took us round the Churches around Ground Zero where the firemen and others took time off for R&R. I shed many tears on that trip. The third was in December 2003. We landed and it started to snow, and did it snow!. We stayed in the Trump Hotel on the corner of Central Park, what a view, absolutely beautiful!. I had arranged a trip to a male strip club on one of our evenings, Jeez, what a laugh!. There is a picture of me with a stripper sitting astride me that surfices every birthday at my place of work. LOL. My friend manhandled one of the strippers, he obviously wasn't used to us Northern girls, and I have to tell you what she felt was not real!

@benwj, not sure where you call home, I once got the impression you may have been asian, when you asked me to post my vital statistics on line LOL, I have revised my idea and now wonder if you are Australian? If you are, I haven't been there but that accent makes my toes curl, in a good way. Please clarify your routes benwj.

@Zubber, well you've already said you are Indian. The only time I've set foot there was on the way to Singapore c/o the RAF, so can't really comment but to say our local does a good Onion Bargee :D Hope you have got a sense of humour Zubber or you will face a difficult time here at DF!

@Joe, home is where the heart is Joe, but it makes life easier when you can watch Citeh every weekend, but you not being a footie fan that won't mean much.

And last but not least DDS, my little munchkin, conspicuous by your absence on this topic. :wink:

BM, I meant that I now call Dubai home... which I don't like saying too often.
But, if I said that I was an Aussie, would that knock Herve off his perch???

benwj, BM is a sucker for an accent and an under dog. Just look at where my footie alliances lie. c'mon spill.

benwj, I see you are quoting the price of a meat pie on another topic. Is this to mislead BM? Do they have meat pies in Aus and do they warm up on the Barbie? I have had another thought :?: are you a brit? I hope you haven't eaten all the pies and need DDS's fitness video, another fat fu**er? I do hope not!!

Sorry, I didn't take note of your football team. Is it Sunderland?
But I don't follow soccer, therefore I am not British.

I am quite partial to the odd meat pie or several. But I can still see my :shock: , so I haven't resorted to fitness videos yet.

That's ok benjw, BM likes a man whom she can cuddle! No, my team is not Sunderland, although local to me. IMO men shouldn't need fitness videos. Regular execise should suffice to keep one fit. I can offer some fitness advice by PM if needed.
