He had a table full of work ready to be done (mainly electric hair clippers) so I was thankful for the relatively short turn around time. Picked them up - TBH55/blade, and sharp enough to shave with. :D ps managed to find the noodle s...

Re: Dreams and Ancient Beliefs

Yet another death blamed (by elderly villagers) on the cursed door-facing-3-way-intersection. No matter the man may have lived there for many years or that he was in debt......chalk it up to that intersection.

800k, When Does Three Month Period Start?

So, an extension is due on 1 Nov, but you renew 30 days prior on 2 Oct. The IO tells you to keep 800k in your account for 3 months. Does the 3 month period start on 1 Nov or on 2 Oct?

News from a Developed Country

Years ago when my brother in Pennsylvania lost power for 3 days due to a snow storm, I thought about how we live in the jungle and have not lost power for more than 8 hours. Yes, in the early days here, we lost power often, but those days seem to be long past us. Then my brother lost power for 5 day...

The foam is impressively thick, compared with the more standard thin-foam that is glued to the steel.

Dreams and Ancient Beliefs

I've long believed that no amount of western living will rid a Thai of the beliefs ingrained in them from birth. That's why even after 46 years of being married, when my wife says she had a dream, I usually pay attention and don't brush it aside while sipping our morning cuppa. Likewise, when I plan...
