Re: Please help me..

Just to add to Semps post, what I like about the check ups there is when the results are through , about 10 days later normally, if there is anything on the report that concerns you, you have an opportunity to discuss them with a Dr if you so wish, not included in initial cost, but not expensive, I ...

Re: Never Forget.

Thanks for that LS but it is noticeable the comments on the story are all sceptical as am I .All RAF pilots are trained how to deal with an unidentified intruder in unauthorised air space as this would have been classed, without shooting it down, especially over land where people are.

Re: Never Forget.

I only recently became aware of this. Two fighter jets were sent up to take down the last remaining commercial airliner that eventually crashed in Pennsylvania. Those two fighter jets were unarmed. They had no weapons. Because it takes an hour to load weapons, there was no time to waste. The fighte...

Re: Udon Thani Immigration:Is Affidavit still valid for non USA, UK, DK, AUS retirees?

If I remember what I read a while back the account, be it 400k or 800k, can not be a joint account. If this is correct and the owner dies how does the Thai spouse get access to the funds? She goes to the bank with death certificate. Or you could simply keep simply keep the account in just your name...

Re: Rumor Check: Problems with income method in Udon for extension based on retirement

At the risk of upsetting a few guys, I'll tell you what I think. A man works all his life and decides to retire in Thailand. If he can't scrape together 800,000 baht, he shouldn't be here. I'm certainly not wealthy but keeping 800,000 in my Thai bank is not a hardship. I'm legally married and could...
