Moved to New Zealand from the U.S. I disagree that it's about luck - it's more about how much homework and preparation you do in advance. Do everything you can to immerse yourself in your new life - walk the new neighborhood virtually using Google streetview, listen to the local radio stations streamed online, and talk to everyone you can find from the UK about their lives there. Moving is stressful enough, but doing all that you can to set the expectations for your...
I've been working in public relations for five years now, both in the States and in New Zealand. - What in PR do you do?

Don't get me wrong - amazing culinary creations both - but the batter is about the consistency of pancake mix. You get little droplets in the oil and it will stick to the fry basket. For best results, fry all the things that usually come out limp and disappointing in the oven: spring rolls, jalapeño poppers and...
Let's go Buffalo.
Duff's. The place is a WNY institution. They've been frying wings there for so long the interior has taken on a faint yellow patina from all the grease particulates in the air.
