A People Like Us development update

Work is underway for subscription fees. This is a really big job, and one that has to be perfect. Note that this is about development work. It is not yet available on the main site. It will be ready in a few weeks. The first thing I needed to do this week was to set up the system to accept paym...

Is People Like Us too Australian?

I often read that PLU is too Australian. I'm not sure anything could be too Australian! 😂 We're really nice. And we'd love to welcome you down under, any time you want to come! I'd like to dispel that little myth though. I'm Australian, as are 294 other listings that we have here, but...

Car exchange in UK

We have arranged a house and car swap for the three months we will be in London. However there is a problem with the car insurance. Apparently UK insurance companies will now only allow the use of the home owners' car to international drivers, for a maximim of 90 days in a calendar year. This...

Doha to Amman: Why was the man in 8G so very nervous?

Does anyone remember the episode of the Simpsons when they need witness protection to save them from Sideshow Bob? Then he wears a T-shirt with “Witness Relocation Program” and a cap emblazoned with “WRP” wherever he goes? I was reminded of this yesterday on my flight from Doha, Qatar to Amman, J...
