Hi Kat. My girlfriend is from Florida and is just sorting through this stuff. Send me your e-mail address through PM and I'll put you in touch.

I think it is for the housewives of rich husbands who have nothing else to do except try finding vanilla extract and convert fahrenheits to celsius for the next coctail party... :mrgreen:

I seem to remember writing a tirade of abuse about them on the old ESAF site...

They did respond with a reasonable sense of humour, but I really do think they are the incarnation of evil on this planet.

Just hearing the word 'committee' makes me want to go and kill small animals.

I know someone who has been to these meetings. It's a bunch of older women who have husbands working for Nokia or some other IT type position. They have little clubs and stuff.

. members have contacted them in the past and it seems they don't want to have much to do with us. They're not the beer guzzling partying types at all. :P

If you look through their interest groups bridge playing appears a couple of times that was enough to lose my interest.

But hey kat when you get here we can start our own American women in finland club. And sure Phil you can join :wink:

So instead of the "Rich&Retarded Housewive's Society" swapping hints on how to polish pearls, you'd be the "Poor&Trash Housewives' Society" swapping hints on how to change oil in the car :mrgreen:

Yes I am sure you do. It wouldn't be by any chance the same person who left shortly after arriving at Kaivohuone last night (7pm was it?) because they drank a little too much 'pop' at Karaportti?! :P
