Obey Thai laws. Is that so hard to comprehend?

Where can my Thai wife learn English in or near Udon?

I can recommend AUA for adults learning Thai.
I have no idea about Thai adults learning English.

Usually the direction of instruction is commensurate. Good luck.

A long-time OU fan (and alumnus) I've grown tired of the perennial hype surrounding my school. Sure the school has a good pedigree, but it doesn't mean every team is going to be world-beaters. The Big 12 is done. Kaput . The universities that ran out last year were smart. They'll be better for it. I...

NEW TOYOTA

I bought a new Hilux cash-in-full in Udon Thani and the service is outrageously crap. It's the worst new car purchase experience of my life. And I've had several. I wanted leather seats. They didn't have any available. I asked if any nearby Toyota dealers had it available. Their response: Go to KK, ...

Snedeker: $11.4M for swinging a stick 270 times over 4 days

Nice work if you can get it.
Quiet, unassuming guy from Nashville.
He beat the world's #1 by nine strokes, the world #2 by eight strokes and everybody else by at least three.
Nicely done.

Wrong Way Driver - One dead

If they don't cut across and drive against traffic for 100m, they have to go all the way down to the Nong Bua intersection to turn around. That's a good four minutes and 3 baht worth of fuel. The safety of your family and vehicle, and other drivers and their property and disregarding Thai traffic la...

The incompetence of Thai government workers is often shocking. I had the same run-around -- for two years. They asked for the the same nonsense embassy paperwork certifying my passport is "original." What source document might they need? My birth certificate? The same one necessary for the passport ...

What's living in Udon Thani like.

Issan is great, it's like camping. Some days the electric will be on, other days, not. Some days a construction project six km down the road will result in your shower being interrupted mid-shampoo, other days not. Think of the great familial bonding potential in April when it's 43 degrees and you'v...

Best Lumber Yard / Supplier / Mill

A bit outside your parameters, but there are several (at least a dozen) old wood barns filled to the rafters on the road between Ban Phu and Tha Bo. It's a few km NW of Udon but worth a look. My limited experience in buying 2m-long hardwood crossmembers for concrete clothesline poles, is that it's v...

Motor bike riders scam

I'm with pienmash. Too many farangs here are naive buffaloes with itchy wallet-fingers prepared to unfurl a paper-fan of silvers at the slightest insinuation they've made any sort of transgression. They're petrified of being accused and tried for anything -- even something for which they played no p...

I've been a Big 10 fan since growing up in the midwest. Always cheered for the perennial powerhouses of wholesome, dignified schools like Penn St, Ohio St and Michigan, and against the faggoty California freaks and Big-Halftime-Band centric SWAC. Wasn't much impressed during the late 80s when showbo...

Water Company in Udon Thani (PWA)

I had a leaking toilet flapper-valve once. My wife scrubbed the edges of the flapper-valve -- seems there was some salty sort of buildup on it. It wasn't seating cleanly on the sculpted, artistic, rounded edges of American's Standard. The ground water here isn't very clean and after a while (a year ...

Another dog attack yesterday. Looking for pepper spray.

Get a plastic squirt-bottle (sports bottle) and fill it with 100% bleach. The next time you see the mutts in the street, give them a face full if they chase you.

As a bonus, you can tell your neighbors to watch out for the white-headed attack dogs.

International Church of Thailand

Bhuddists set up temples in every western country. Muslims, Jews, the same.

It's a giant circle jerk. If you want to criticize one, they're all the same.

Religion has killed far more than it's ever saved.
