Visa extension denied today and I’m beyond my I94 so wondered what options were for ring and whether I need to leave the us. My little girl just turned 2 months and can’t travel yet (waiting on her us passport) so am hoping I dint get sent back to the uk

Have you spoke to your congress person? That's the only way to get shit done it seems.

I can probably offer advice. Thatched properties are too high risk to use comparison sites usually so you’ll just get cheeky prices if any. Feel free to PM

Anyone had a CCJ put on their credit report in error? If so, how long does it take to get expunged?

Yep. You need to get it set aside. Once that’s done by the court within 30 days it should come off.

I have my first interview in ages (edit since graduating). Is it normal/alright to not wear a blazer, just suit trousers and the rest?

probably depends on the field but I wouldn't risk going "under-dressed"

Anyone raised seed money for a startup? Starting something new and would love a chat with someone who’s done it before.

It's not capped but a lot of places tend to be a similar price due to competition. We were quoted 40 to 50 quid by a few places in Edinburgh a couple of years ago.

It's not something a mate can do.

got a new job that's requiring me to travel a fair bit,
departing on the 11th, but earliest I can get my second vaccine shot is 25th scheduled through the NHS, is it normal to just go early to one of these drop in places and get it done? would it be possible to get it early?
