"FL, I so hear you too. It's frustrating, to say the least. I am perfectly willing to BE a part of the local community, but if they know you don't attend church - and you can call yourself Christian but you will be considered NOT one if you…"

My pleasure Fiona! =)  Hope your move to the USofA goes smoothly! I've always wanted to go to Australia myself - in part - because I'm a huge fan of Aussie Rules! *L* Hope all is well with you.
