So, I've sold my house and am thinking about buying a small bolt-hole for visits home, that I can rent out to tourists when I'm not using it. (Also planning to use it to bolster my meagre pension.)...

Re: Point of Entry

That's interesting. I'm flying from London to Oakland via LAX in a few weeks, and have been trying to decide whether to go with the 4 hour or 6 hour layover. Are you implying that LAX is efficient?

Re: US embassy london

I was also approved pending medical, and was not given a 221g. Maybe it depends on your circumstances and the visa you're applying for. I was DCF in London for IR-1. So don't be worried if you don't...

Congratulations! I had my interview on 29th May and they were still waiting for my medical results due to the bank holiday. Still in administrative processing (and really hard not to keep checking!).
