Re: Udon Traffic

The Ring Road from Big C towards Global is a bloody disaster, with the widening roadworks and I also noticed they are going to do the same from Big C towards the KK road , so better plan alternative routes for a few months

Re: 120 kph?

We are what I would call going through the halcyon weather period at the moment, the weather is just right, cool in the evenings and early mornings, rising to a very palatable level mid-afternoon. No storms or strong winds just purrfect as they say.

Re: Targeted online advertising

Those adverts have been doing the rounds for years, the trick is to completely ignore them eventually they disappear, until a NEW advertiser gets lucky and your in the loop again, I have tried over the years to delete, ignore and do many other things but the best way is to ignore them.
