Re: value of the pound against the Dollar

Totally agree that Wise is the way to go - I've used them ever since they were a startup and they have since matured into something much more than just a straightforward foreign exchange co. Its very...

Re: Transferwise Rebrand

Ha yeah I got that too. Those funky hipsters.....seems a bit cheesy to me, but never mind I will continue to use them as I have since they first appeared, still the best of the bunch! :lol:

Re: UK Foods in the US Share your finds!

Yep, PG tips always in stock at my local Publix.....but at about twice the price of Tetley British blend - which is more my staple given the cost discrepancy :)

Re: TSA PreCheck Experience

I also recently got the Global Entry....took about 5 months for the conditional approval to come through. Interview dates are also apparently scarce to come by. Luckily, my approval came through...

Re: Florida Renting

As the others have said, something like airbnb would probably make the best sense and you'd like have a bit of a hard time permanently renting a 'regular' type of apartment. Only way round it...

Re: Transferring Money from the UK to USA

Another vote for transferwise, started using them when they were a startup and to my mind have just gone from strength to strength. I find their multicurrency 'borderless banking' very handy, and...

Re: Which passport do you use ?

Asides from the basic US pp for the US and UK for the UK, I use whichever one is less full as I travel an awful lot to countries which insist on chocking up your passport with full page visas....

Re: To get a Florida driving license, just what exactly do you need to do?

I took mine 9 years ago and can concur with the above - 40 questions and "test" round the plaza car park where the local DMV office is located. Took it within two weeks of arrival, in my own car...

Re: XE.com - getting slow?

I think mine have always taken about a week or so - I don't really have a need to do them urgently or regularly so no biggie.

As an aside, what I'm wondering though is does xe still have a...

Re: Oh god, not again..

I know exactly how you feel - exact same thing for me when my mum passed in January. Tragic event - but bringing people together and catching up is exactly what they'd have wanted.

Re: Visiting Cuba - US Visa Problems?

Before I came to the US, I visited Cuba a couple of times. There are loads of US citizens there....they either go via Mexico or Canada as a rule. The Cubans welcome US citizens and I was told on...

Re: Oil changes

I change the oil as per what it says in the book for a "Normal" schedule. This whole every 3k thing is complete barlicks, IMO. Of course all the oil change places will tell you that - the other...

Re: Internet Access / Providers in the US

Now that's one thing I will agree with you about...not just the guide but the workings of it. Just as I was leaving the old cable provider, they rolled out a new guide - and the best thing was on...

Re: Internet Access / Providers in the US

I reckon it must be localized Bob - wonder if its anything to do with reuse of existing infrastructure or something. When they first rolled out Fios down here they spent millions and caused chaos...

Re: Kids and tea drinking

Ice tea is a big thing down here - can't stand it myself, but kids grow up on it in the same way Brit kids grow up with hot tea.

My little almost 6 year old daughter also likes hot (well, warm)...

Re: Internet Access / Providers in the US

Have to say I'm very happy with Fios. Managed to get a special "Gamer" deal around Christmas time for 35/35 for the same package price as their basic 15/5 (in reality I get a steady 43 down/26 up). ...

Re: Which is best-Passport or Registering Birth Abroad?
