Any July 4th Celebrations in Udon?

The VFW is having a 4th of July event tomorrow (the 4th), so anyone connected to that organization has the option of attending by way of RSVP.

ClimateGate Thread [OPINION POLL]

Seems like the ClimateGate thread is just a troll thread going on years... (my opinion)

I just ask as an idea, not like it could actually happen, but just curious enough to create an OPINION POLL, asking the above "Lock the ClimateGate thread?"

Tree Trimming: Tessabaan Muang

We need a tree trimmed that sits between our property and the neighbor. I politely asked the neighbors and they agree it's too big, and asked a police officer we know, he said same, it's affecting the power lines and vision of truck drivers. He suggested we contact Tessaban Muang. Anyone dealt with ...

Whirlpool Dryer: Service / Parts [Heating Element]

Hi, We have a Whirlpool brand Commercial grade dryer, basically an all-metal unit vs. the cheaper plastic types. Now we are up for what is likely the first heating element replacement. It's either that, or a fuse or thermostat. BUT there's a small hitch, the dryer is DIRECTLY wired into the wall, e....

Thanks Mak & to all for the advice, it went quite well. Registered for new passport & got my income letter notarized.

Was there at 8:15, #50 on the list and out by 10AM.

There were probably 70-80 people but it was a breeze, kudos to the ACS team & wardens for such an efficient system.

Walked into the office today, and caught one of my Thai staff threatening and intimidating the manager. He was lunging at him without hitting him but the intent was clear. I kept my composure, hard to do in the situation, gave him a verbal scolding and sent him home. Obviously we plan to write him u...
