What's the best small dog to get Dad?

Our much loved dog Bokey died a year ago, and we want to get a small dog to keep dad (and us) company. What breed is active, fun, doesn't bark much, and doesn't have long hair? Basically, I'd like a shitzhu with short hair. Any suggestions? And where do I get it and for how much? :D

Is there a well-educated German in Udon?

I'm an American writer, just having the cover of a joke book translated into German- and I have two questions. (Happy to take you to lunch while you answer these questions, which should take one or two minutes.) My American friends who told me they know German- it turns out they took it in high scho...

Re: Crazy Rich Asians- New Movie

Turns out the movie's a big hit- made $35M the first few days! If somebody sees that Crazy Rich Asians is playing in town, I'd love it if you'd let me know.

Re: Crazy Rich Asians- New Movie

The movie's gotten great reviews https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/crazy_rich_asians/reviews/?type=top_critics. Joe Morgenstern of the Wall St. Journal called it "hugely entertaining." Lots of Asians seem to be going as a matter of pride as it's the first big Hollywood movie staring Asians in 25 year...

Re: How can I connect with a Thai art student?

Does anybody know where the art studio relocated or what number I can reach them at?

As for Rajabhat, when I taught there I remember there were large classes. But I don't know how to reach the department, perhaps somebody else knows and can help me out.

Thanks!

Breakfast for 4 strangers- wanna be one of them?

My regular Saturday breakfast friends are not coming this week- one is off to the USA and the other Bangkok. So I thought I'd see if anyone else would like to come instead this Saturday. A chance to meet new people, get a free breakfast, and maybe have some fun. My wife and I live near Nong Sim, nea...

How can I connect with a Thai art student?

I have a concept I want to develop in fart books- yes, fart books, books for little boys 8-12. But my publisher in America is too busy with other things, so I'd like to work with some Thai art student who can draw, especially cartoons, here in Udon. I know there are art classes but I've no idea how ...

McLeod ganj- a great place to live?

I was looking thru Australia amazon, and happened upon a book where the author was telling us about his picks for the top 11 places to live in Asia. He mentioned Nong Khai- it was nice but too sleepy for him. Udon, he said, was becoming a little Bangkok. Ah, but McLeod ganj - THAT was a great place ...

Are there pro photographers in Udon?

Time is passing so quickly, the folks are old, the nieces aren’t babies anymore. I’ve been thinking of capturing this moment in time with a pro photographer. Are there such, what do you suppose they charge, and should we instead just take a bunch of our own pictures?

Guys, We're looking to buy something to provide shade for the side of the house. And so far the best company we can find (we think!) is this. Anybody have any experience with them or the product? Also the price: 12.75 square meters for 25,000 baht- does that seem like an okay price for a high qualit...

A kiwi friend's in hospital there and sent me a cell phone number to call. I'm a little shy about calling as I know cell phone calls to NZ cost a bloody fortune! Anybody familiar with this issue and can advise me. Maybe there's a land line at the hospital I could call if this is mega expensive. Than...
