Re: How to Hang a TV or wall clock?

The Thai way is to use the wall anchors in the mortar sections between the bricks although hanging lighter objects from brick anchors should be OK. Nice assortment of anchors from parrot. I buy mine from Home Pro. Just take your time making your selections and keep the floorwalkers away with a "doo ...

Re: ubc out??

We live southwest of Udon and our True reception is fine tonight with signal strength at 255. Does sound like your dish needs realignment. Most of their service people are good but......we were receiving the HBO channels 155-157 distorted with clipped audio. All other channels were fine. The kid the...

Re: How do YOU like it?? (Burgers)

Have tried burgers at TJ's and they are good and will get around to trying the others sometime but the BEST burger in town? Only IMO but Harry's Bar has to be in the running. Don't know where they buy the buns but they're always fresh and plump. Handmade patties cooked to your liking with the large ...

Re: My favourite pharmacy in Udon!

Jack, my Probenecid 500mg tablets cost 4.5 baht each after the AEK discount. Developed a kidney stone and my doctor says prolonged use (2 per day for 15 years in my case) of the Probenecid may be the cause of it so will be changing my prescript next visit. Not sure yet what it will be but could be t...

Re: My favourite pharmacy in Udon!

Joking aside, I do buy my blood sugar monitoring supplies from this pharmacy (Somchak's on the 2nd floor?). The owner speaks good English and is very knowledgeable. Believe his family owns a couple of other pharmacies around town including the one across from Ban Hoy market. And he has never offered...

Re: American food in Udon Thani.

I'd love to see a classic American Diner in Udon, with lots of chrome fittings, and neon signs. The Skyliners "Since I don't have you" coming from the 1950's jukebox. Hickory smoked bacon, and a choice of how you want your eggs cooked. All we need is an eccentric millionaire with vision, to come al...

Hold them beans and the sausages look like they were cremated, O-T, but, yep, no contest. A proper English brekkie will keep you going the whole day. Never been a big grits fan myself.

Re: 55 Years of Playboy Playmates

Probably before your time but Stella Stevens from Jan. 1960 was a bit of a film star.

Some real beauties over the years. Wonder how many of those lovelies were nailed by that old cocksman, Hugh Hefner, at his mansion? :-k :D
