I feel the same way about my recent move from Snow Leopard to Yosemite. Unfortunately, many newer things would not run on Snow Leopard so I had to make the jump; but I do miss Snow Leopard.

Oh, I know I will. When I first moved there, I met with another Yank whom I knew that had a position at Oxford. He told me that I would find the standard of living much lower (than that to which I...

Yes, sorry, as in food. However in my limited (17 years) experience of living in England, the Brits that I knew all pronounced it buff-IT. Perhaps it varies by region? I lived in Reading.

Oh, then that means they pronounce it "Yo-sim-a-tee." I'm glad to hear that, because the British do manage to mangle the pronunciation of other words, for example: buffet. :)

Interesting. The 'my friend' bothers me more than 'mate' does. I guess I accept the latter as a regional colloquialism whereas the former is a declaration of something that is often untrue.

That 'mate' business also concerned me when I first moved to England, but I soon learned that it just means friend. Similar to the use of 'buddy' or 'pal' in the US. I found it a lot easier to...

Agreed, but as you probably know, the word 'quite' changes its meaning when it migrates from one side of the Atlantic to the other.

If you live near a College or University, they may offer one or more photography courses as part of their continuing education program. I highly recommend that you look into this.
