Re: Landscaping.

I think to have this thread become permanent and well supported by the garden lovers among us, would be great. Here's hoping. In answer to your question, I chose shade grass mainly because I prefer to look of it to ordinary grass; although I was a little concerned the trees and bushes along the inn...

Re: Ashes 2019

Well the English threw up a team ????mid week with the same strength as a remainers debating team. It was not even their best 11. P..s poor effort by the Poms Ashes match organizing group. They Only had a few years to think about it and to provide a county match suitable for the visiting team and of...

Re: Live CCTV Cams Throughout Udon!

CCTV of Udon. Cannot believe that anyone would be scrolling through cameras or whatever is available. What could you possibly want to see. Just something else for the homebody couch potato to keep occupied. Some soon won’t have to leave the house ever. Internet for all entertainment . Waiting at the...

Re: Yes it really happened

Finally Finally Finally a UM thread with some serious local Thailand issues in our day to day lives. Biscuit dunking is a favourite of mine.
Not sure the Poms here know how to dunk a TimTam biscuit. Can only be done with cold milk though. Is an art form.

Re: Insurance advice warning

Kakariki I’m interested in your Cobra bite. If you care to share the experience? It’s not every day you hear of this about an expat in Udon. What did you and the Thai’s do with the initial bite. Was help at the hospital forthcoming in knowledge of cobra bites. Antivenin available? etc Curious Sent f...

Re: The new T.I.T. Shop

Stereolab, Yes as the ex owner of T.T i posted the new shop times. But was quickly informed by UM that I cannot promote the shop under the T.T thread as I am not a paid sponsor. To keep things correct I then asked UM to remove my entire TIT thread of some 3 years, this was duly done. I’ll try and no...

Re: Ashes 2019

This is what the Ashes is all about, a struggle and a backs to the wall effort needed from the poms, trying to save the game and the series. There is going to be a result today and only 2 ways to end. Poms lose it and the ashes are back on Aussie soil, win it and the series is well and truly alive w...

Re: Cardinal George Pell

None of them has the death penalty except the USA - so take your pick. All of them have had child abuse by the clergy, and historical cover-ups. But only one of them has gone through the processes I outlined earlier. Lets not forget the British history of abuse of children in Australia. A bloke cal...

I'd also be tempted to bring in Stark Starc learnt how to bowl at Headingley when he played for Yorkshire. I think it would be a mistake not to select him.

Re: John's budget build

I hear there's been some sprinkling of rain in UT of late, has this affected progress?
Having the building covered and partially sealed does allow things to progress inside.
Are your windows to be fitted soon. What type and makeup of the windows did you go for?
