Re: Users on line .

I also see " Users browsing this forum: No registered users and 0 guests " at the bottom of this page. However, when I go to the very front page of the Forum: In total there are 233 users online :: 28 registered, 1 hidden and 204 guests (based on users active over the past 100 minutes) So the sad at...

Re: Wall or thread of remembrance

I enjoyed those glimpses into Ron's life, ting_tong. If Ron never wanted that sort of thing seen, he never would have set up the account and presented those broadly varied photos from his past. I truly believe the exposure will not bother him, wazza and truebrit. But you guys of course likely do not...

Re: Wall or thread of remembrance

I second this suggestion. I have not often come by the forum in recent years, but I often wonder on various members I have interacted with, yet never met. This is the first that I have learned of Ron's passing. I never met him, but I always enjoyed his antics in the forum, and he was someone I thoug...

Udon Thani Driving School

Rick, your wife was correct. This question has probably been fully resolved for you by now, Darlene, but I just wanted to point out that the driving school has its own advertising page elsewhere on UdonMap: Udon Driving School . For whatever reason, the school's own website that is provided there is...

Re: My pictures of Udon over 3 years

I'd like to compliment you too, maccavelli. If I was staying in Thailand, I'd be taking photos everyday for blogs and such. You really should post elsewhere -- I suspect that you are a true resource for those of us who only see Thailand from afar. I haven't been there since 2005 -- the same visit I ...

Re: Falang's wife owning Land

That link makes it pretty clear. My own wife, Jack, bought two rai of land in her Nong Soong village last year. She had to travel back there from Canada to close the deal, but her non-residency -- as well as her last name (mine) -- didn't seem to be an issue for anyone. I didn't appreciate the debt ...

Re: Take a short trip to China to teach English

If I was Single, and thus not so deep into debt that I can't dare Retire, I'd certainly consider such a venture.

Young Woman Serial-Kicks Men in Genitals

Apparently she hangs out in Langley, which neighbours Surrey where I live here in B.C., Canada. http://www.nationalpost.com/story.html?id=2155193 http://www.theprovince.com/sports/Langley+offered+body+armour+options+groin+kicking+woman+still+large/2156535/story.html It sure strikes me as odd in this...

Re: Rajabhat University Experiences

I'm making this reply from work, legendarysurfer, but I truly want to thank you for offering those pointers. I'm going to print them out and ensure I have them at hand to keep them fresh in my mind, for I'm going to be bringing them up from time-to-time with Jack whenever opportunity permits. I woul...

Re: Rajabhat University Experiences

I feel for you, legendarysurfer! I have a vaguely similar issue at play here in Canada with my wife's oldest son, who came here -- along with his younger brother -- in September, 2008. He finished his Grade IX without any conflicts that I know of. And then the boys went back to their Nong Soong vill...

Ex-Vietnam Lieutenant Apologizes for His Role in Massacre

http://www.wral.com/news/national_world/national/story/5842978/ I found this article relating to the My Lai massacre quite interesting. Time obviously changes us all. I know that back in 1968, I would never have imagined myself having any interest or involvement with an Asian girl. I simply had not...

You've always been too cool for words, Beer Monkey!! It's no wonder whatsoever that you're so generally popular on the Forum.

Re: What does your gf or wife think about Falang land?

My wife LOVES it here in the West! She got her first ever Visa allowing her to leave Thailand in 2006 -- her dream! -- and arrived here in Canada on May 10 of that year. Sure, she's been back every year since -- even though I haven't been able to afford to go, too, since my last visit in 2005 when s...

Re: Any 7th RRFS Ramasun Station alumnae on the forum??

I think this was the page where he posted a link that told his story in detail, but the links don't work any longer:

It was a great read, and many of us were much affected by it.

Re: Going back to Canada

S & A, if you do return to Canada, then I also wish you the very best. I've often thought of you and your health. I, however, still want out of the West badly. But I'm locked into the full-time working life, and in an occupation I've never liked. Working will kill me -- I believe I'm mostly healthy,...
