    I am so excited, I could just cry for joy. My what an honor. The Queen is one smart lady to show our First Couple such respect. Has any President stayed at Buckingham Palace? Yes Jessica, I hope the girls can go also. Is this after Prince William and Kate’s wedding?

    Exciting, I’m starting to feel sick already for the 25 & 26 May. Just have to have a glimpse of or one of their famous hugs. Awww security will be tight in Central London – will settle for a glimpsE. Have to dust off my Obama t-shirts and badges – LOL.

      Titti, I wish you luck. My favorite thing I treasure is seeing the president’s smile in person. OMG. I just light up like a Christmas tree every time I see that smile, but being within 15 feet of him is heaven.

    I’m so happy that the Obamas are Invited. Oh but the last time Michelle showed compassion while speaking with the Queen, and Oh My, the Pundits tried to throw our First Lady under the bus. Does anyone remember that? Look a here, the Queen felt a warm and genuine touch, and was not offensive to her at all, In my opinion. You go First Lady, and just continue to be yourself :-).

      I remember it Shirley. Wow, she touched the Queen. Just the concept of not being able to touch the Queen is very strange.

    I like to invision The Queen and Michelle in their pjs sneaking down to the palace kitchen late at night for some cookies and milk and a little “girl-talk”. After the O’s last visit The Queen had a veggie garden installed at Buckingham Palace. Something even Prince Charles, Britain’s #1 promoter of organic gardening, didn’t accomplish! I hope Michelle O. wears an American designer to the state dinner or we’re never gonna hear the end of it. LOL!

    LOL – Thanks Sue and Dorothy I’ll do my best. I’m hoping that he’ll be invited to speak where I work – they had Clinton and Mandela (before my time) so I assume they’d be working hard at it.

    I am thrilled every time I find others who are positive to our President and First Lady. I almost feel that they are my family and I want every one to love them like I do.

    Oh one more thing I find all the news shows revolting and I only watch PBS. I think that is why the republican want to reduce PBS funding to $0.
