In the news this week it’s been confirmed that President Biden will meet Queen Elizabeth. It won’t be a novelty for her, she’s met every US president since Truman except LBJ. She’s the only world leader to have done so and it’s doubtless a major part of the Special Relationship between the UK and USA that survives despite the occasional disagreement.

Bringing things up to date, there's news about Transatlantic travel - could you use your expired US passport? - and voting from abroad, plus theater and restaurant reviews.
