I may be nieve in this regard and naturally do not expect a Royal Ascot ex...

Warning for bad criminals

Kjellsnell, Good luck and i hope the investigation is thorough and you and your family get some closure so you can sleep at night. Something is missing and not right here as it does not seem to be a petty crime action and they knew about the security and were not afraid, but systematically took out ...

Mountain biking

My young bloke was thinking of coming to visit me in thailand and do some mountain biking aswell. He said he was talking to people at "Active Thailand" to see what was available for graded tours etc and if he should bring his own $3000 machine or if they supplied the bikes.
They have web site.

I think if you watch the other documentary " Chroniicals of Riddick" the future with aliens will be answered in full. It was for me. And the scenario of Gudtymchuk would be the precurser to this.
