Re: Money transfer

I once had to take my money out of the country. I went to my bank, SCB, and had a cashiers check made out to my US bank. The check was for US Dollars. It was quite a large sum and I was pleasantly surprised that no questions were asked. Maybe things have changed, I don't know.

I live in Loei province. I find it interesting that many rock formations here have marine fossils. How did that happen?

Re: ClimateChange - EndTime 2050 - Disturbing Report Sheds Light on

Mother Earth has been going through cycles for millions of years. I'm not saying that man hasn't affected the earth, but no matter how much money, using various scams, is thrown at what is perceived to be the problem, nothing is going to change. What will be will be.

Re: OK boomer

I was one of the very early boomers. My 1963 graduating class had more than twice as many students as the previous graduating class. I really don't care what the spoiled kids of today call us. I won't be alive to see what happens to the country when the voters elect "progressives" and the government...

Re: Villa market

Some posters apparently miss the US political threads. They have no one to criticize or belittle so they transfer their hate to a harmless thread like this. LOL!

Re: U.S. Politics

Taken from NBC news; Congress derives the authority from the Constitution. The term "impeachment" is commonly used to mean removing someone from office, but it actually refers only to the filing of formal charges. If the House impeaches, the Senate then holds a trial on those charges to decide wheth...

Re: Villa market

Villa normally has whatever you want. If you choose to shop there, you are paying a bit more simply for the convenience of one stop shopping. I myself hate to go store to store hoping to save ten baht.

Re: U.S. Politics

The bottom line is that the democrats are wasting time and money by concentrating on a lost cause rather than doing the job they were elected to do. If this lost cause ever makes it out of the House, it is doomed in the Senate.

Re: dash cam

I had a cheap dash cam that appeared to be working fine. My wife had an accident and the truck was hit on the right front. It was hit hard enough that the camera was knocked off the windshield. The other party that hit her admitted that it was their fault after they saw the camera. Unfortunately the...

It's a shame that the libtards spend all their time trying to belittle Trump. They are too blind to open their eyes and look at how great our economy is and the vast amount of other improvements. The democrats in our useless congress refuse to do the jobs they were elected to do. They spend all the ...

Re: HOW RIDICULOUS IS THIS? (TOYOTA UDON THANI)

I have an old Toyota that I keep at my Jomtien condo. The thermostat was sticking so I took it to a Jomtien Toyota dealer. Because of the language barrier, I opened the hood and showed the service manager where it was. His answer was NO HAVE. I thought that was quite pathetic. I drove south of Jomti...

My wife bought a new Ford Eco Sport. I knew Ford had some transmission problems in the past. After driving her Ford, I was impressed at how smooth the automatic transmission shifted. A few days ago the dealer told her she had to bring the car in and leave it for three days. Apparently they had a re...

Re: water tower or not

I would love to have a solar hot water system, BUT, unfortunately there are too many trees blocking the sun. The only place that would work is one area on my roof. I already have a solar panel there. That area would need to be reinforced and the roof tiles replaced.

That was the problem with our 3 meter high tower. Overflowing through the lid was how she knew it was full. Unfortunately she often forgot to fill the tank, thus no water.

If you have money a strong baht makes you richer. If you're poor, you're still poor. If you're in the middle, foreign things become less expensive and local things continue to inflate.
