Re: Question concerning K1 Visa for Chinese Citizen living abroad

Timing would certainly be a cause for concern. I know of a few Chinese students in Canada who had to wait for all of the special clearances to finish up. One of the members on Candle is an Aussie and...

Re: K3 Approved from Guangzhou - 1 1/2 years

Nothing about Guanzghou is normal. About half of the folks who returned their P-3 in July are still waiting for an interview. The December interview shedule is full and who knows about January.

Re: OT: The Penge Bungalow Murders

Gotta love Leo Kern. Rumpole was a fitting character for him and saw most of the episodes that were broadcast here, but I also had the pleasure of seeing him in Shakespearian roles. He was a...

Re: My Girl Is a Commie
