Re: radio stations

I haven't found any.


I have thought this may be good thing for the expat community in and around Udon. But then I consider how nearly every thread of every Thai forum evolves into bickering like a bunch of old ladies and realize it would never work.......

Anybody have appliances repaired?

I am informed our clothes washing machine is having a problem. Any successful appliance repair amongst the board?

I would much rather replace some component than get whole new machine if possible. The thing is less than 5 yrs old........
