Re: Weather in Udon ?

Thunderstorm overhead in the late evening , very strong wind and plenty of the wet stuff coming down. Stopped approx. mid-night or thereabouts, was rumbling away until 0100, about 25-30 miles away .
The damn frogs croaking lulled me to sleep .
This AM , 0545, pleasant 25 degrees and calm

Re: 9 New Covid-19 Patients, All Returnees

I was told many years ago , the term Farang or Falang was attributed to White Westerners including those form Australia, New Zealand and the North American Continent . Therefore anyone else was called something else . Unless the definition has been changed secretly .

Re: Waste Disposal Centre

Yea I will remember that when I see loads of trash left by the locals with regard to Roadside Health and Soi Dogs, including walking into permanent markets where the floor is awash with debris . Until the Local population care why the hell should I worry, I never put out anything bad, if it is , it ...

Re: Why Thailand Isn't Reopening to International Tourists Yet

There you go Mickojak, thinking , often here thinking is not logical as the Thai thought processes are also not logical , therefore foe a sane man to think is a recipe for disaster especially when dealing with Thai officialdom .

See the Man-child is losing the plot threatening everyone including Twitter as well as continually accusing an innocent man of Murder. Something not quite right with him , now he appears to be terrified of NOT be re-elected.

Re: caulking up deaths to LockDown Madness

I think he means Chalking UP deaths due to the Virus . Used to say it was Pneumonia but no-one believed them, now they say Covid 19, no-one questions, just nod sagely and carry on.

Re: Waste Disposal Centre

I agree.. I have had larger items I wanted to get rid of and neatly put them out by my bins. They're almost always gone within the hour, usually from someone driving a rattletrap tuk-tuk out junking and looking for anything to turn a few baht.. Agree 100%, just put it out and it will go , put out t...

OMG it is only water , which we mere mortals have in our bodies approximately 70%. As long as important stuff does not get wet why worry. In the rainy season I always carry and umbrella and a Zip Lock plastic bag to pop in important stuff if I am out .

Re: Ride-on (or Riding) Lawn Mower?

While I understand the need for a mower, have you thought about , some goats, who will do the job nicely, all you need to do is top pick up the poo and take care of the goats, a plus for a person who is getting older .

Sadly it does show the level of stupidity and ignorance of the Mr Average American voter, who will get what they did or did not vote for as I really think that unless he wins Trump will use all measures to make the vote look full of fraud, etc, he will not take defeat lying down, partly because he w...

In days of yore, we ALL used to drink and drive but with the Breathalyser and more time under my belt plus seeing many accidents where sober people died because of a drunk including innocent children, I do not drink and drive.

The other side which I forgot to mention was Thai Culture, which as we all know marrying off children to recoup money spent.

Your point is, what ??
My point is that people, even alcoholics, don't need a corona virus or alcohol ban, to think about how they manage their lives.
You are correct, but it was mainly those that need to drink that were moaning , not anyone else .

The alcoholics have an opportunity for a new lease on life. Should read, the alcoholics have a new outlook on ending their lives earlier .
