Starting the first of January, China has a new law about foreigners who operate nonprofit or web sites or private consultant and many other things, within China. You must register them as a business through the Chinese government, or be charged for operating a business within China. So I have to shut my web site down, to avoid any problems or legal expense just too much of a problem to try and get the necessary paper work and get it approved.

It is with regret that reaching our eleventh year, I have to do this. You can still reach us at ocrcchina@aol.com

That's a great shame Kenneth and yet another loss to Orchidists.

Logging in this morning and amongst the News headlines saw North Korea planning an American air-base attack.
What is wrong with these paranoid, megalomaniac Leaders in that area............. :confusion-scratchheadyellow: must be something in the water ?

Child minded and no clue what the US has in it's arsenal. The bad hair cut and over wait leader just might find out about antimatter the hard way. I severed two years back to back in South Korea on the DMZ, and have the Korean language as a second language. I know a fair amount about the DPRK military, in fact I have a small hole in my right leg just above my ankle from one of them, just have to love momenta's.

It's a lovely hair-cut, very similar to my own in fact, I'm sure he must have copied me? :lol:

It's nice to bring back souvenirs from foreign visits, not sure a hole in the leg is one of them though?......sounds nasty!

Keep up the very good work Kenneth, even though we may not get to know about it in the future.

That souvenir caused me to pause for a second or two.

As for the future, I have an idea that might skirt this new BS, a forum for orchidology.

China micromanages all us foreigners, so it is hard to say the least.

I don't feel mad, is strong enough of a word to describe it, Ed...........

The word humanity, has lost it's meaning.
I remember some old sayings.
Don't touch or take what is not yours.
Treat people as you would want them to treat you.
Old people should be treaded with respect and kindness.
Don't say anything that you might regret and wish you could take back.
Judge the first words out of a persons mouth, for it's truly what they feel and think.
The magical words are Please and Thank you.
Your first impression is the lasting one.
Honesty is the best policy.

It's a whole different world over here, many of the foreigners that I know or have met, shake our heads at things over here, in shock our disbelief.

But; just because I have a website that I operate from within China. Under China's new law they can charge me with operating a business within China illegally.
