Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

Still marooned in Texas, but glimmers of hope. It took all of yesterday and half of today to navigate the Thai Embassy online application process to return. If anyone thinks the extension process is a pain, take plenty of medication before attempting the online process to return. The good news is ou...

The feelings you might get when you go to immigration or when the traffic police stop you or when you read signs like the ones banning foreigners from temples or buses. An expat who ...

Re: someone in the oil.

At the fountain circle, head toward Makro, then the second shop on the left has all your needs. As I recall, the owner speaks pretty good English. Also a good place for things like lawnmower belts, etc. The store is only 20 or so meters past the circle and you might have to park a bit up the road.

Re: Thailand and its spirits

My wife and neighbor who we bought our land from tell us we have a good spirit on the land. Never any Pee drama. My wife religiously appeases the spirit each Buddhist day with cigarettes, incense, flowers, some dessert, and a shot of whiskey. 23 years and no issues, so it must be working

Re: Reporting from Across the Pacific

Although I haven't seen anything 'official' yet concerning the return of international flights in July, it now appears that the Thai government is going to employ the bubble concept to opening up......that is, maybe flights from Japan, Korea, China, etc. Our mid-July ANA flight (resked from May to J...

Re: America coming apart at the seams?

I'm curious what the legal team of UM says about third-degree murder charges. I googled 'people convicted of third-degree murder', but couldn't find anything. Just curious.

Re: America coming apart at the seams?

Prior to 2016, I mused, "I try to visualize someone like Colin Powell riding atop a Bradley tank, crashing the White House gates, and announcing 'I'm in charge now'. Try as I may, I never get a clear high definition picture of the event in my mind." Then since 2016, there have been a few times where...
