Re: School Sex Abuse Cases Spark Alarm

While carrying out teaching in Udon Thani province, I saw too often abuse physically of children, ( nothing incurring permanent damage ) , after mentioning it a few times, learnt, that it was a complete waste of time as Teachers have the right. The Thai culture to put teachers on the Podium and almo...

Re: power bill reductions (covid-19)

Just retrived my latest bill from a water-logged post box. The amount is already including the discount as I used more than last month , but paying less, cannot be bothered to calculate the discount, just happy to pay what they ask, considering the ( for me ) excessive use of Air-con during this bil...

Re: Open but no Alcohol

Despite all local eateries in main re-opening, it is surprising to me at least that most of the punters are still staying awy, it would appear the NO ALCOHOL is possibly stopping them. This shows a very shallow base of patrons, loving the food but because for one hour or 90 mins in a day while eatin...

Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

The problem has always been IF there was an underlying health condition that this VIRUS attached itself to. Like if you suffer from a sever respiratory disease and catch Covid 19, you are more liable to die, now is the cause of DEATH Civid 19 or the fact that the underlying health condition worsened...

Hmmm debatable, I've never seen four dots used and is it a fourth dot or a period? I'm sticking with three dots myself.
Philosophically, I'm with you. It's an ellipsis followed by a period.
Four or more is a pause for effect as it were

Re: Border and bar closings

As long as it is the local population breaking the curfew, why worry , with the Governmental Talk about extending the Emergency decre34e until the end of June and the Military willing to make sure it is enacted correctly, I think foreigners should avoid testing the water in breaking Curfew .

Interesting article I read this AM, concerning China and its Scientists, they seem to be closing in on a pill that can activate certain parts of the immune system, delaying the onset of this virus by possible a few weeks , allowing time for the body to produce its own anti-bodies to fight the bug.

Yes rain in the metropolis of Nongnakham, quite a sufficiency, but expect it to stop by 1730 or thereabouts , not too heavy just right to soak into the soil the feed the plants. It is the result of a Thunderstorm tracking from the west going in a North easterly direction , possibly from that Typhoon...
