When I was a kid, my parents best friends were Bonnie and Bill, and Bill was from Paisley, Scotland.   He was dark and handsome, and when I was six I asked him to marry me.   It was a long running joke in my family, at least until my Dad started sleeping with Bonnie when I was eighteen.  Shortly thereafter, both couple were divorced.  Dad and Bonnie have been married over 35 years now and Bill got lost in the shuffle

Throughout my life, Scotland has been calling to my soul through music and symbolism, and the rich culture of the Celts, so in 1997 while conversing in an AOL chat room, it didn't surprise me to learn that a man I was very attracted to turned out to be from Paisley, Scotland.   Though he'd been living California since 1976, after several months of chatting and two face to face visits, he packed up, moved to New Jersey, and we've been together nearly 20 years.  Yes, I am most definitely was worth moving 3000 miles for..  lol

Two years ago I walked off a great paying job that I held for 37 years, 25 of those as GM/COO.   The stress from a narcissist owner finally broke me and it became a matter of my health or the money.   I chose me.   I went to college for the first time at age 60 and became a certified Graphic Designer, and now my husband, who is already retired, and I have decided to move to the Inverness area of Scotland.

Our reasons are many, but in order of importance, they include:  lower humidity (these east coast summers are unbearable), politics (they're not much better in the UK but at least Trump isn't there), food poisoning (80% of US food is bad for you), healthcare (I'm not eligible for national health care but private insurance is WAY cheaper in the UK, plus, in America they want you to be sick whereas in the UK, they are motivated to keep you healthy).

We've visited Sam's homeland twice over the last several years, and when I stepped off the plane I truly felt like I was home.  I am excited to start a new chapter in a new, wondrous place, and I hope the people of Scotland welcome this old Yank and her handsome lowlander.

 Thanks!   I have found the Celtic people to be the most genuine, most welcoming, loving people of all I have encountered.   That is the biggest attraction of all.   But I do love the cold air.

I'm from a bit north of Inverness, and know a Bill from Paisley too (my dad). There's a good handful of Americans living in and around the Inverness area and they seem to enjoy living here, except for the cold. I'm sure the people you meet will be welcoming and good luck with the move over here.

I imagine question time could be entertaining. Will the ministers need a translator?

Pretty much nailed it!  Especially the bit about what the English hate most about England! Ps mr Cameron demanded that there be only a yes no vote rather than the 3 options originally proposed.  The no vote has now turned into what the third option would have been anyway (known as devomax).
