A Royal Visit to the White House.


I’m watching on PBS a show about how Queen Elizabeth is treated when she visits the White House.  President Obama recently had the dinner with Prime Minister Cameron, where the cast of Downton Abbey was at the State Dinner.

All I want to know is, what does one talk about at a State Dinner that isn’t out of bounds.  Now I am watching President Bush in white tie.

I didn’t know what is involved.  For me showing up at such an event would be like the Geoffrey Hughes character in the Britcom Keeping Up Appearances.  I can see it now; Onslow at a State Dinner.  That would give Hyancinth angina.

White shirts and me are dangerous.  I am banned from wearing them at work by my colleagues.  I didn’t even wear a white shirt for my Dad’s memorial service.  Sauces and white shirts don’t mix.

It is an interesting look at what is involved in making such an event work.

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
