Taxi from Udon to BKK

Never been charged when coming or going to the States and was overweight for the domestic legs.

I was always told, "Show ticket for international portion" if they want to charge you domestically.

Where to buy descaler (for coffee machine)

When I've had this problem, it's always been the cradle (?), where you add the coffee. The little metal basket's (?) holes get clogged. I soaked it in hot water and then my wife went at the holes with a needle for a while. Probably easier to replace the basket, or the whole arm for that matter, if p...

Bubba's Bar & Grill

Yeah you got it! I think Bubba may even make Philly Cheese Steaks if we ask him nice, maybe with Birch Beer?

And some ring bologna and beer pretzels? OK enough. Now I must stop by Bubba's tomorrow!

You need to make 10 posts before you can SEND PMs, harry, although you can receive them now.

Make 4 more posts and you're good to go as a full-blown member.

Obama v Romney debate

I have to say everything I've been reading -- and that's a lot -- has surprisingly given me pause for many reasons. Not only for the things he has NOT done, but for some of the things he's done that seem to have actually advanced Bush's agenda. Who would have imagined that 4 years ago? And will he b...

October Meeting of Smoke-Free Social Group

I think many of us agree with you Perra, and Jon.

There are a few, however, who seem to feel we need to hear their opinion on everything.

We don't.

can't log on to secure website

Just tried with TOT and couldn't connect. Used my VPN in US and connected immediately. I have it partly because a number of US sites won't let me in from here. But apparently others can log in from here, so may be a TOT server issue; i.e., your site not liking the TOT's IP numbers. But tricare-overs...

Bangkok Hospital Udon Thani

I'd really like to hear people's experiences either way with the new Bangkok Hospital here. There seems to be surprisingly little info about it, something of a non-event. Another thread on hospital experiences in general would also be of interest to members, I'm sure. Among us, we surely have a weal...

Chaos on Bullshit Mountain (Fox News HQ)

Disappointed? Yes. Very much so in some cases.

Understand? For the most part, unfortunately. The system is broken.

Options? No viable ones this time round, sadly.

Decision: 4 more years, which he will surely get.

Old time black/white movies

Think you're right about the timeline. I saw some films in Chiang Mai about 15 years ago like this. The most famous, and I think the earliest, was called "Chang" (ช้าง). But I seem to recall them being shot in some remote parts of northern Thailand at that time: Mae Sariang or Mae Hong Son (when the...

Jimbo - Why don't you take your letter by Immigration before going to spend more money on another letter. Just ask them if you can use it in November or not -- they will tell you. Although I'd probably ask someone higher up and make a point of taking their name; of course one never knows... I also a...

Does anyone know if there is an official format for writing a letter to be notarized? For example, I want to say "Please close CD #xxxxx and deposit into Account #xxxxx. Yours truly, Jed..." Possibly need a bit along the lines of the income affidavit? "Subscribed and sworn to before me this date:"? ...

Ah yes, I see, thanks for clarifying you're not one PG. I'll look around the ACS visit crowd next time for wardenlike people, then.

Are their identities meant to be confidential for some reason?

Well at least I know UM username "papaguido" for one.

Thanks for that. Interesting and worth knowing.
