Default The State Department has a sense of humor!:)

As many of you know, the consulate in China has completely halted issuance of all immigrant and K-1 visas. Nothing since August 1 and absolutely NO idea when issuance will begin again.

So, I call the consulate in GuangZhou just to check the status of my case and while I am on hold I am serenaded by some nice Muzak.

The song?

"Never My Love"

Who says those government workers have no sense of humor?

Good one, Tom. You know the adage that music calms the savage beast. GZ wants to 'set the mood' before they take to you. I wonder what followed 'Never My Love'? Maybe, 'Silence is Golden'? Hope there is some news soon.

Perhaps 'The Long And Winding Road' would be more appropriate.
