Upcoming UK Driving Licence Changes Cause Confusion
Fortunately the situation with regard to hiring a car in the USA is clear. No counterpart or passcodes will be required!
UK Counterpart Licence Will Not Be Required to Hire a Car in the USA from 08/06/15

From June 8th 2015 the paper counterpart of a UK photo ID driving licence ceases to have legal status. A UK driving licence will be either a paper licence issued prior to 1998 – pink or green it doesn’t matter – or just the photo ID licence which is renewable every 10 years. This will be all you will need to collect your USA car hire from 8th June onwards. 

There is some debate about the need to obtain a code from the DVLA to hire a car. This is not necessary to hire a car in the USA. The DVLA website specifically says:

“After 8 June 2015 if you are hiring a vehicle or you drive for a living and you are asked to provide evidence of your driving record (entitlements and/or penalty points), you will be able to do this online for free by accessing our Share Driving Licence service.”

It is important to be aware that hire companies in the USA do not recognise our system of points and endorsements – as long as you are not banned from driving you can hire in the US.

We have checked with all of our US suppliers and they will only require you to present a full, valid driving licence as described above.

Does anyone know what this is? We found it today in the woods on my brother - in - law's farm. It is extremely light so I think made from thin aluminium and has a small hanging loop so has been suspended from something. The dents came from my son's stick before he realised how thin it was!

I like this post about the dangers of recommending or installing freeware.

Excellent post by +Sholto Macpherson outlining the online storage options for businesses. 

Something I have been considering as my Office suite becomes ever older and clunkier.

Happy Thanksgiving to my plusfriends across the pond. I hope you are all having a wonderful day with family, not 'goofing off' on the computer!

+Randy Milanovic​, I see your saltwater tank and raise you one tropical fish tank. Yours is certainly better stocked, but I don't think we're doing too badly for £100 off eBay!

Once it has settled in a bit we will be able to stock it with some more interesting fish :D
