Re: Alcohol sales online ban starts ....

Would the telephone sales be classed as online?
Surely the companies tried to fight back.

Maybe just need to regionalise and send to warehouses.

Re: Concrete Paving Machine

Well the concrete laying machine did it’s best and the main road is now 4 lanes wide. Just some fine detail concrete to finish and hopefully lane and turn markers painted. Great job by the machine when in use and very quick and a good finish. Unfortunately not all is a silver lining, this starting f...

Re: Wheelchair Needed

So someone posts an item with info for UM members but as usual as on many posts these days a post quickly pops up with no relevance to the main point of price and availability.
And then the dementia kicks in and is even repeated to increase the non relevance.

Re: Wheelchair Needed

Revisiting the wheel chair topic. Just purchased and received a wheelchair via Lazada and delivered by Kerry. 4 days. 1950 bht. I actually thought wheelchairs would be more expensive. Yes there are better quality but only need for short periods not full time for someone who is totally incapacitated....

Re: A Shadow of Darkness From Australia.

JacksPratt Why would you even consider thinking that comparison of Aussies and farmers. Apples and oranges. Your continuation of insinuation to bring the Aussie armed forces into guilt and the thought that they were all complicit in so called atrocities, it is strange in why you take this path. You ...

Re: A little ray of sunshine from Australia

On this day, 26th November 1855, the colony of Van Diemen's Land becomes officially known as Tasmania.

A Shadow of Darkness From Australia.

Once again UM members are showing their absolute expertise on a delicate subject and throwing the hang em high guilty verdict out there with gay abandon from a perhaps only a 500 page report which has only just been released only with recommendations.

Re: new payment rstrictions

But definitely appropriate for many of the so called very very long stayers in Udon. How life must have changed for them, from their younger original a...

Re: A little ray of sunshine from Australia

If you thought you were drinking the best Gin produced, for all these years, then you need to try the truly best Gin in the world. Four Pillars Gin, from of course Australia, has just been awarded the back to back, 2019, 2020 Best Gin title. Now on my list to procure. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.co...

Re: Solar/Wind energy for the future. Forget it

Disagree that batteries will be smaller. Perhaps that applies for small personal application where a 6 or 12 volt supply is required. Eg being cars, golf carts, wheelchairs, home solar etc. weight is a priority in many of those cases. But , where huge battery storage is required in a mixed renewable...
