Re: Has anybody thought this?

As far as the handling of money goes, I just pretend my wallet is full of the virus, because as far as I know it is, and I keep a little bottle of sanitizer in my front pocket. It may be that I will get the virus somehow, someday, but I am trying my damnest not to.

Re: Has anybody thought this?

I spent a bit of time researching this theory, and my doctor back in the States said it is quite possbly correct. The experts seem to be all over the place with this, I read an article by a researcher who worked extensively with the SARS virus supporting the theory that the half-life of this new cor...

Re: Coronavirus Now in Thailand !!

Anyone have any input as far as the best airline/transit point for a Thailand to Seattle flight? Seems like every flight I look at has layovers in S. Korea, Taiwan or Japan. Or does it matter?

Re: Coronavirus Now in Thailand !!

People keep comparing the flu to this new virus. What they are not thinking about is how bad it has been in China, much worse than any flu and the fact that it could get that bad anywhere else. This is still in the early stages and growing. I think in a year from now we will see how bad this is goi...

Re: Coronavirus Now in Thailand !!

I'll be flying out of here on February 27th to Pattaya. I'll be flying Eva to Taiwan then BKK. Has anybody been through Taipei the last couple weeks? If so, is it chaotic because of the situation? How about BKK? I was wondering the same thing because I am due to fly out in three weeks. I see that s...

Does anyone believe any of the figures put out , especially from china .
Im also amazed that Vietnam and Loas are not heavily infected .
If Laos were infected it's not likely you would see the news released. The Lao we know say that it's too far away from them to matter.

Re: Volleyball Tournament

We didn't go this year, we really enjoyed watching the FivB world championships in Udon last year, but we found the drum-beating and chanting "Holay,Holay" to be far too much for us. We couldn't even hear the calls and announcements. That coupled with the announcer personality rattling on making jok...

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

Manometer tubing is mounted at the surface. Line from the well bottom to one side of the manometer. Changes in level create changes in pressure which in turn create changes in the manometer. Setup would require first knowing what range of measurement is required to make manometer tube correct size....

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

I opted for welding three lengths of 6mm repar pieces end to end and then ran my newly made dipstick down the well. I marked the rod at the top of the well casing when it bottomed out so as to have a total depth of the well. Then I pulled the rod up and when I got to the water line on the rod I mark...

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

I'm not so sure how one would observe a Manometer tube while it was maybe 10 meters or more down a well. Maybe I don't understand?

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

Sounds like a good way to measure. I'll mess with it tomorrow, my plan is to drill a hole in the top of the well cap (I covered it with a 4" pvc pipe cap) and to weld 6mm rebar lengths end to end and make a dipstick. But I may also try your method, problem is the pump is a deep well pump with two pi...

Re: Coronavirus Now in Thailand !!

Our doctor in the States is advising us to go back home just in case things get bad. The wife has chronic asthma and has to take ventilator treatments and I have a compromised immune system (Shingles). Doc said if the wife contracted Coronavirus it would be really bad. The doctor also said "if it ge...

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

Water Department came and ran the pipe the 140 meters from the main street to our gate. They showed up with 3/4" poly even though the contract said 1". They went and got 1". A couple of elderly fellows dug down and spliced into the 4" main at the street, then the foreman hooked up our 1" pipe and us...

Baking Cocoa Powder

So....the missus has been teaching some of her nieces and nephews how to bake now that we have a decent oven, but it seems that it is difficult to find decently priced baking cocoa up here in NongKhai. Because I have vested interest in seeing this go well, I thought I would ask you fine folk in Udon...

Re: RECESSION?

Our favorite Korean BBQ style buffet here in NongKhai just bit the dust, they charged more than most but had more and better selections, I'm guessing that when times get tough people don't care quite as much about selection but price. Yet in the rice field our deck overlooks there is a large housing...

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

O.K., so I built a tank stand to get the tank up off the broken cement pad it was on, and to give us enough height to have at least some gravity flow in case of power outage. The stand also provides at least a little protection from the weather I bored another hole in the top of the tank to allow fo...
