A Thai person can enter Laos on their Thai Passport, then there's no need to hassle with a pass.

Re: USD prognosis post new tax cuts - poor

Yeah, I noticed that too. If someone wanted others to take them and their predictions seriously, they'd leave their obvious political bias out of it -- especially with a prediction that isn't even grounded in historical numbers like you pointed out. All looks like more wishcasting from another membe...

Re: Pizza Dose; new restaurant east side near Horse track

Could this be the same owner as Picolla Roma. His main location is not far from here. They tried several locations downtown and never made a success of any of them. The spaghetti and salad are pricey, but the pizza is priced right if it's a good size. If it's only a 9 incher like the so-called mediu...

Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

Yesterday I was shopping for one of those cheap extension cords with a 10 meter long cord, and I couldn't find one in Big-C or Amarn Electric downstairs. In the past one could find them by the truckload in either of those places. I was told to go to Big Lots Hardware on Nittayo Road down from Big-C,...
