I am in the U.S. lol It appears to me this is a site in the UK basically. Love reading your posts, but since I am not in the UK was wondering should I be here. You'd think a Yank could find something as interesting as what you have going here in the states wouldn't you? hahahaha (blushing)

There have been other gransnetters form the US, White El. Have fun pottering about the site 🙂

Hello from the north of Scotland ... so far as I've found, there are quite a lot of Americans on Gransnet, so you won't be an oddity! Welcome from me. wine

Yes the vast majority of gransnet is UK based, but all are welcome. Pull up a chair and dive in. Many of the topics are not geography dependent smile

Hi, Whiteelephant! This is a British site but there are people from all over the world so make yourself at home here.

Quite a few of us, including myself, have family in the US. smile

Yes, it's surprising that this seems to be the only English speaking site for (mostly) grandparents. A while after I became a gran, I went looking to see what sites there were for general information and support, and this was the only one I found.
And I've found it useful and entertaining, so glad I joined.

Yes, welcome.
Some of us have family in America and some of us have lived there and maintain an interest.

Welcome, I live in France. It is very interesting to hear other people’s points of view from different countries.

Hi WhiteElephant you are welcome on Gransnet. We have people from all over the world on here. Like mokryna I live in France but have family in America.
I'm hoping to visit USA in a couple of months for my grandson's wedding. World situation permitting of course.

Hello WhiteElephantand welcome to Gransnet. I have a Goddaughter in Texas, her sister is in Canada, also family further afield in Australia. So it's always interesting to hear from people in other parts of the world. smile cupcake brew

Hello WhiteElephant, come on it, there is a place for you on that lovely comfy sofa, kick your shoes off, tea or coffee? How about a nice slice of cake too?
