Good call then to raise it. It probably got missed because of the Map's fixation with President Trump. That seems to have passed for now.
Lack of posts fron Lone Star has greatly reduced Trump crapola, thank goodness.

Re: orange juice just as unhealthy as fizzy drinks

I've always said there is no way you can substitute a glass of juice for the actual fruit, no fiber. But also I think a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice is ok once in a while.

Re: Transferwise.

Transferwise is good for small amounts but that doesn't work for me. My income is direct deposited into my US bank. I wire transfer money to my Thai bank whenever it is needed, maybe once or twice a year. If you check the rates for large amounts you will see it is quite high making regular wire tra...

Re: YOU WILL BE FORCED TO UPGRADE FROM WIN 7 TO 10

There is no "FORCE" to upgrade but security wise it would be highly recommended, but for some this will require a new computer as a lot of Windows 7 computers are not compatible with Windows 10. Also as an FYI do you know a lot of bank ATM'S in U.S. run on Windows XP.

Re: Credit Card.....when to use?

I use one of two US credit cards in Thailand because they don't have any foreign transaction fees. I ask to have the transaction processed in Thai Baht as I have found that to provide the best exchange rate. I use these credit cards at any business that will take them without adding a service fee. ...

Re: greece wants WW2 cashback for 376billion

Greece better hit up the Italians too, after what the Romans and Mussolini did. U.K. can go after Japan, remember they really messed up the Empire with WWII.

Many Thai citizens (non US citizens) receive SS payments through BBL NY. This will continue. You don't have to be a US citizen to receive SS benefits.
But you are not to receive benefits if you are outside the U.S. continuously for period greater then 6 months as a non-citizen

Re: Visa Extension based on Retirement 28.01.2019

Sounds like best bet is to put money in an account and just leave it alone completely, gaining a few baht interest, unless a dire emergency arises.

Re: Anyone had a Groin surgery done at AEK?

Not sure if you are talking about a catheter into the groin, but if you are when I had mine a while back there is very little pain after, but restrictions on what I could do for a while like lifting things and any stress on groin area.
