Advice for starting a new line of work while in Melbourne for two years?

My wife got a temporary academic position in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I have happily followed her here. After almost six years of working in childcare, I would really like to get into a new line of work. Something physically active and room for some actual advancement. I just turned 30 and feel a bit like I have been wasting too much time treading water in childcare. I have a few years experience as a prep cook and dishwasher, and years of experience volunteering in non-profits and community organisations. We don't have tons of friends here and I am feeling a bit isolated and discouraged. Any advice or motivation you can share would be greatly appreciated. More details below of course! [more inside]

US Tax Law Change for Americans Living Abroad

As a US citizen, living and working abroad for many years, I recently heard of a new law that I must file tax returns on the US by Aug 31, 2011 or face a penalty. Anyone know about this? If US citizens live and pay taxes abroad, they generally are exempt up to $91,500.

Blogs about foreigners in the US?

I'm looking for blogs by and about foreigners who move to the US and talk about their experiences. I'd like to avoid mandatory student blogs if possible. Bonus points for English-language blogs by someone from the East, but anything that isn't Canada will do. Thank you, MeFi!
