Re: U.S. IRS starting to revoke passports

As the article points out...expats may not get the letter from the IRS. There should be a way to proactively check if you are on their naughty list

Diesel spill off coast of southern chile

40,000 liters of diesel. I guess that's better than crude oil and the amount is certainly alot less than most historical oil spills. It's basically a little less than 40 of my underground diesel storage tanks Still sad that those pristine waters have to deal with this...looks like it's off coast of ...

Re: Housing market situation

I am glad you are so considering the plot size, that is one of the variations I thought of as well. It sounds like you have kids, etc, you may want to look at half hectare plots and over.
