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

How ridiculous is this?????? I have an older Nissan Teana. The drivers window button stopped working. Took it to the Nissan south of the Army Hosp. I had been there before and at the time thought they had diagnosed the problem correctly tho quite expensive. After a so called inspection I was told th...

Re: Knee Pain

I had a lot of knee pain at times, a pharmacist here sold me a tube of piroxicam which is the ingredient sold under different names. It solved the pain problem allowing me to walk and ride my bike again without pain and discomfort.

Re: converting slides to photos

Old grumpy got it right. I upgraded to a Canon 9000F Mk II scanner which was much faster. I brought back nearly 4,000 slides and scanned them to the computer then an external hard drive to store. You can print off your computer, assuming you have a printer. Call if you have any questions. I had my p...

Re: Bank Account for Retirement

In the 16 years I have been here it has often been interesting at the efforts to avoid or satisfy Immigration. In general, what is expected is usually pretty clear but the efforts run from amusing to downright stupid. Just do what is required and get over it, your life will be more stress free.

Re: Trump's US in retreat: racism, domestic pathologies behind global mess

It is just Fu%&*ng amazing at the amount of self styled international experts living in Udon but not limited to. Always reminds me of the old saying, opinions are like rectums, every has one.

Re: schools obsessed with uniforms

I believe the idea of uniforms was to level the social playing field making each one look the same with out fashion, fads or what could set students apart by dress or family status. I totally agree with that concept if adhered to and not make uniform requirements a burden on families with less money...

Re: Eye exam.

Go where you will but Udon has some great eye doctors. I was referred to the Queen's Hospital in Khon Kaen and my cataract surgery was performed by the head instructor of the school eye dept. The hospital in BKK is no doubt good but there are other more convenient and less expensive choices.

Re: Hospitals Over Charging

Ref the cost of drugs and Dr care in Thailand. I have been told by a reliable source that 1. Dr pay is quite low. 2. Many Dr have their own clinic where they make their money dispensing drugs. I trust this source since there is a Dr in his family. I see a Dr, at his clinic, every two weeks and get a...

Re: Get rid of Automatic and Semi aoto guns now

There are not words enough to say how utterly insane this is. Creating thousands of instant felons from innocent citizens and it isn't going to solve the problem at all.

Re: DFAS and IAT format

My direct deposit goes to my CU in LA and I write a check at SCB for any cash I want. Naturally I have an account there and sufficient money in it so they give me cash for the check on the spot.

Re: This, That and Another Thing

I suggest looking around the area before settling on Thailand. The dollar value is not the best. Immigration policies are becoming less falang friendly and who knows what changes are coming after the election.

I have maintained the 800,000 for years, never a problem other than being told I could use it or asked why I didn't use it.
