If anyone has income or bank accounts outside the USA i would check very carefully what the rules are regarding taxes and filing. If your income is solely generated in the USA the IRS has a handy online guide which they ask you many questions and then tell you whether you need to file an income tax return for any given year. The guide does not however ask you if you have lived most of the year outside the USA.

@Bucko, if you would have read my post carefully you would have noted i said most single people who make under $10,000 taxable income in fact straight from IRS regulations do not have to file a tax return as exemptions will offset that income, but their are exceptions for some.

Should preface the statement i made before. For the most part any single tax payer making less than 10,000 usd a year will not need to file a federal income tax return, but their are circumstances in which they might want to or might be required such as most self employed people or anyone owed a refund etc.

New website design should have been an improvement over old, but really miss old one. Why no edit button when posting in forum?

I ride the bus daily and all the new buses seem to be Hybrid, many of them propane fueled. What i do not understand is how Yunnan prison in the north hills behind the police academy can burn an incinerator every morning spewing out the thickest blackest foul smelling smoke i have ever seen or smelled. When the wind is in the wrong direction that smokes drifts into a housing complex that houses mostly retired and present police officers.

@Alien if you cannot stop people from driving there cars 1-2 blocks to the store to buy a carton of milk how are you going to stop people from flying. Airlines are big business and china is spending big money on new airports so i do not see airline travel slowing anytime soon. I walk, ride my bike for groceries and take bus from North to Nanya shopping mall for work, and only take car as a last resort, but i will not stop flying to USA once a year to see my family.

Friend was given aerosol last year for bad bruise on leg and had allergic reaction to it. Ended up with bad rash and open sores. Doctor gave him something which was no help. Cleared up with hydrocortisone cream i gave him.



Metro has many things i cannot find other places, but i still find it a frustrating place to shop sometimes. Seem to frequently be out of things. For example their was very little fresh meat to choose from and actually they were out of many things and i was their just after lunch. They had no loaves of toasting bread and could not tell my wife when they would be getting more in. In looking at the fresh date on Hormel ham it had expired in September. However for first time i was able to shop all the aisles. Not filled with merchandise to be stocked or fork lifts.


Ate lunch today. Server was attentive. Food was good but a little slow in coming. Looking forward to eating dinner some evening and trying salad bar i have heard so much about.


To all those expecting an authentic Irish Pub come on we are after all living in China. I have eaten there several times and the burger is still the best in Kunming in my opinion. Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. Place is not perfect but what is in CHina. Owners have been wonderful in opening up early for special events like the US Super Bowl.


Went for Pizza special tonight. Had the Barbeque chicken and it was very good. Also enjoyed an exceptionally large order of French Fries. Everything was good tonight and owners where not there.


Wonderful place. Evening price is 88rmb which includes large salad buffet and they bring out skewers of the best beef i have had in China, also chicken, pork, sausages, goose, corn on cob to your table. They seem to slow down after 8 but before that constantly waiters bringing fresh meat and cut it onto your plate. Have eaten there 5 times in past 2 months and has always been excellent food and even better have never left with any stomach ills.
