Buying Computer for Thai G/F

I think you're missing the most obvious choice. Buy her an Android smartphone. That way she'll be able to use it with WiFi and with her SIM card via EDGE/3G. You can also use it with Latitude to see where she is at any particular moment :D And yes, you can use MSN chat, or any other chat with it, in...

Recommendations for BKK-UTH-BKK

I I did actually take the bus recently, Chan tours, with the massage chair, private lcd tv etc etc. A pleasant 8 hour ride for 550 bath. Still gonna fly but when that option is out Chan tour is not an bad option I have to say that if I'm just traveling to BKK and don't have to catch a flight I pref...

I hope so as Udon is in desperate need for a good coffee shop. Who knows, maybe the proprietor will respond. :D

Do they have soft, plush seating? Do they have wifi? I can't tell from the picture and WiFi isn't mentioned. For the life of me, I don't know why there isn't a Starbucks knockoff here in Udon (or the real thing). I'd love to find a place with comfortable seating, plentful electrical outlets and reas...

January 22,2012 a farang was handcuffed and arressted by the Udon Police at the Adunyadet Road around 9pm. A local shop owner called the police cause of his agressive behaviour. Quite honestly, I've seen so many farangs who have exhibited aggressive behavior and who WEREN'T handcuffed/arrested, tha...

Bank deposit security

If you are worried about bank insurance, I would highly recommend any Korean bank. In 1997, the ROK stated they would backstop all Korean banks (in the ROK or overseas) with the full faith and credit of the Korean government-- 100%, no matter how much you have in the bank.

Wouldn't it have been better for the snake for you to have come within striking distance before it revealed itself, if it had ind...

Teaching as a profession?

@greatsnake - I thought the same. The reality is a bit different. Homeschooling 100% means less chance for social development (aka friends). Very important. I agree that social development and language skills are important. That's why he will stay in the school system until he hits puberty. After p...

Teaching as a profession?

I think the point that is being missed is the focus should be on learning and not teaching. With the resources available on the Internet and our educational backgrounds, there has never been a better time to be in our situation (married with children and living in a 3rd world country ). When my son ...

I say, "caveat emptor". BR This is extraordinary good advice. You can not base your medical decision making on anything else other than word of mouth recommendations-- preferably from family members.

Thanks. The reason I asked Bread Man was that, I too, need some garden/black soil. Glad to see that garden soil has been taken off the "confidential" list. :D

Most Americans know intuitively, although few admit it, that the US is no longer 1 nation. The end game for the US, whether that be in 5 years, 10 years or later, will be the dissolution of the union. 50 states = 50 countries. Some of those newly found countries may join Canada, some may join togeth...
