Today is April 30, which is Income Tax Submission deadline in Canada and 15 days till I leave Dalian to return to BC for the “rest of my life”. My wife asked me last night if I wanted her to arrange a party of friends to mark my leaving. I suggested to her that I wasn’t the best person to have an opinion about that.

A few weeks ago I had a wine tasting to which I invited about 15 people and less than 10 turned up. So I am not overly anxious to have another of those parties in my name.

Funny thing happened yesterday with HodgeZ. He met a lady who deals in Chinese medicine to treat diabetics and high BP. She is kinda short or petite in a very Chinese way with glasses and an earnest “I can help you” look! Hodge had the same face, except he meant that this lady would help me more than Western meds. He called me at around 12:30 and insisted that I meet him and her at Central Perk. Bizarre!

She has returned to Dalian after spending 2 years in Dubai dispensing her Chinese medicine stuff! Her 55 yr old brother is her main support in this business. Again bizarre!

I told her to call E and E shooed her away!
