Just discovered your thread Immigrant.  Very nice addition to your home.

Are you certain you own enough Yamaha's?   :imaposer:  I believe I see:

Yamaha R1 w/ Cross-Plane Crank
Yamaha FZ 6 or 7
Yamaha Viking 3 seat UTV
Yamaha Super Tenere
Yamaha Grizzly ATV
Yamaha Sport ATV
Yamaha Nytro snowmobile

His snow blower is a Honda  :pot:

 :imaposer:  If Yamaha made a snow blower  :imaposer:

Wonder if he has a Honda or Yamaha generator when he goes camping?

Asook Charolais en angus. My een buurman het alles verkoop so ruk terug (te oud geword) en ek het meeste van sy kudde gekoop.  Hulle gaan einde Maart, begin April kalf, maar ook lekker vet. Het n goeie somer gehad en n warm herfs, so hulle kon langer in die veld vreet.

I still can't wrap my head around how they survive in this weather. But as long as they can get out of the wind and they have enough food, they seem to be content

Voer so gemiddeld 5.5 maande. Ek budget gemiddeld 7 ronde bale per bees per winter. Hulle loop maar buite rond. As dit rerig koud word staan hulle in so bondel, al wat jy sien is 'n stoom wolk. Ek wonder altyd hoe besluit hulle tussen mekaar wie op die kant staan en wie in die middel staan  ;D

As a lawyer or doctor heads overseas, there’s offten conversions in the qualifications needed, or completely new qualifications or licenses are needed to comply.

Did you have to do anything like this?

I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

I believe that is the case with engineers, doctors etc. and it also depends what province you work in (TheAnt may chime in here with more details) I did not have to, since I have never had a job in Canada where I needed any qualifications other than grade 12. Blue collar workers here make good coin with no education. The Canadians believe very strongly in "on the job training". I have 2 young kids on my crew, 20 and 22, they both make over $80,000. If they keep showing up at work on time and don't piss too many people off, they could be making $100,000 in the next 4 years.

I was chatting to an attorney the other day, young guy, and mentioned overseas opportunities for him...nada...nil. He would have to study again as the law systems are completely different. I asked about a bridging course but he was a negative on that. Maybe someone knows something?

My wife and I are busy looking at getting out of SA and that is one of our biggest headaches.
Over here she's an attorney and has her honors in psychology. The countries we're looking at she'd have to re qualify.

Absolutely correct. My degree is not recognized here. My wife still needs to have her credentials sent over from SA for assessment. I will have to redo a lot of studies, but it is as you said the other day. Rather be working at McDonald's here than be rich in SA. Quality of life and safety makes it a no brainier. But that said, I was lucky to be working in a company that carried most of my cost and that I could just take a internal transfer. Time would tell I guess.
