British pies and pastries

That's not quite true TB. They Did finally get issued with a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication). This means that manufacturers who want to call it 'traditional' Cumberland sausage, can only do so, if a member of the scheme. They also need to be based in Cumbria. http://www.defra.gov.uk/news/201...

Bangkok-Chonburi tollway .

I have spotted cameras (I presume they are speed cameras) on the Bangkok-Pattaya Motorway (highway 7) and Kanchanapisek (highway 9) installed for some time now, never spotted anything on the Bangna-Chonburi (Rt 34) Express Way though. Fines, from people that I know have been issued with them, seem t...

Rubber Buyers Loei to Udon Thani Area

I don't follow rubber prices, but what you're getting sounds pretty low.

Here's a couple of websites that may be able to point you in the right direction for buyers and market pricing:

Good luck!

Turkey Stuffing?

Shado, when I used to purchase Butterball turkeys in the UK, their reps used this (buttermilk basting) as one of their unique selling points, so I presumed it was a worldwide thing. Just checked one downstairs, and it just states that it's 'pre-basted', no idea what with though, so cancel my comment...

Turkey Stuffing?

All white meat and poultry (turkey, chicken and pork) do soften up a little if soaked in milk, it's just an old chefs trick, a bit like pineapple and beef really. Big Al, if you have a Butterball turkey, I wouldn't worry, as it's already basted in Buttermilk. If you have another brand or something l...

It's actually an error message telling us that the error cannot be viewed :).

I think something has broke with the newsfeed source, or the feed format has changed, I'm sure Lee will get it fixed when he knows.

If Bangkok goes under - Thailand Floods

Here's my current take on things: The water would flow better if they just opened up the big bags that are currently blocking the large masses of the water - no doubt about it. The water level is receding in areas - very true, but looking into things, it looks more like the water is just shifting po...

Is there an increase in property crime in Udon?

I also suffered a burglary sometime back in Udon. My office was located in Soi Jamnussorn inside a very quiet Cul De Sac, which was not easy to find, unless you knew it was there. Around me were approximately 11 other houses, all occupied with locals and/or/either farangs. I headed out for a late di...

auto racing in Thailand

All that I know of are the events they run in Bang Saen (near Pattaya), they call it the speed festival - loads of modded street cars and a few hot rod style things.
